Yes. I have studied N. Korea when I was stationed in S. Korea. DPRK is an insane ideology. They brainwash the minds of their population. As a child they grow up in schools praising the leaders as if they are Gods and they are taught that the United States is an enemy that needs to be completely destroyed. They are not allowed to travel outside the country, they are controlled with what they can watch on TV and they cannot have internet. If you protest against the Gov’t they will imprison you and generations of your family. You are a prisoner in that state. Very inhumane lifestyle.
