The Pleasure Squad is made up of 2000 North Korean girls, and divided into three specialised groups - one for sexual services, one for giving massages, and one for live singing and dancing, which they can be made to do semi-nude.

Less than six months after his father’s death, the South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported that Kim Jong Un, the current leader of North Korea, was seeking new “entertainers” for his own Pleasure Squad, just after the formal three-year mourning period for his father.

What should one expect from a leftist? This is what happens when the left gains power, they throw out all the social mores and then anything goes, no matter how perverted.

Shocking. You found a way to turn this into a left vs. right argument instead of a discussion about a deranged ruler in the worst dictatorship in the world.

North Korea is not "leftist." By no measure are they leaning that direction.

If the aggregation of government power is part of the leftist ideology, then he certainly is "leaning" in that direction.

Then you would have to argue that totalitarian leaning governments are inherently leftist. Government power can be inflicted right or left, we should not discount that for political opportunism.

In our style of government, the left wants more government, the right wants less. Thus, the left wing wants the government to control all it can. North Korea is different how, other than being more successful at it.

I would have though Dennis Rodman was more the little degenerate's taste than teenage tarts.

Are we trying to make the argument that Communists aren't Leftists?

Ain't gonna fly in this country.

The point is they are not anything in western governmental context, they are Communist / Totalitarian in nature. From our point of view very little of North Korea's governmental controls qualify as left or right.

You might be able to bend logic enough to make it look like communism is a "leftist" ideology.

But I think the major factor here just might be the fact that North Korea is a Dictatorship, with a Dictator.

This is what happens when 1 person has absolute control over an entire country, it's human nature. It has nothing to do with communism or "leftism".

In this country, Communism has been adopted by mostly Leftist.

OK, let's call it one step removed from Socialism. The millennials are leaning toward Socialism. They probably were never taught about Communism.

That isn't even close to the actual definition of "leftist ideology."

The right claims to want less, but it doesn't jibe with their actions. They just want the government to control different things.

It depends on what part of the government. There are constitutional duties like defense, and breaucratic ones like Dept of Ed, the EPA, and many other alphabet soup breauracies that could vanish tomorrow and no one would notice they were gone.

Hopefully, if trump gets elected he'll cut them back or out. We'll have to see.

NK isn't left or right, it's a totalitarian state, which doesn't fall into our left/right way of thinking. It can be based on left/right, but rarely is. Totalitarian nations are usually just a mess.

I found a way to make a thread about one of the world's most radically leftist regimes into a discussion of the left. Amazing.

Good one. This gave me a great laugh.

Are we trying to make the argument that Communists aren't Leftists?

Apparently. It's amazing the lengths people will go to to distance themselves from their ideological comrades.

NK isn't left or right

North Korea is a hardline Communist state. That's literally as far left as you can get.

No, it's a totalitarian state, not communist. If it was communist, it wouldn't have a dictator in charge. Yes, I know that the only way communism works is by being a totalitarian state, but that doesn't mean that all totalitarian states are communist.
