Considering America's current situation one's concern with their own economic position is higher up on the priority list of its citizens. If you think its bad here be glad you don't live in North Korea
Real information about North Korea is very tough to find so I was fascinated by the recent writings by Patrick Chovanec. After reading the entries I want to go back and read 1984. It is amazing how the government has such control over the information and culture of North Koreans. Please read the entries for a perspective on a truely repressive regime.
