Kim Jong-il's regime is even weirder and more despicable than you thought.

Written by the famous atheist advocate Christopher Hitchens

Article summary: North Korea is a far right fascist state, as shown by its racism towards all other cultures, misogyny towards women, and heavy focus on military spending. True left wing countries, such as Cuba or the USSR, are focused on increasing justice and equality for the proletariat of all races and both sexes, the complete opposite of what North Korea is.

North Korea's political ideology resembles that of Donald Trump far more than it represents the beliefs of Mao Zedong or Fidel Castro

The USSR and Cuba were/are true left wing states focused on justice and equality? :lamo

BTW, North Korea (and its elite) has far more in common with that thug Fidel, Soviet autocrats, and that bufoon Mao than with Trump.

"Left" and "Right" are poorly equipped at categorizing autocracies or dictatorships. What combines these systems is not fascism or communism but statism and their positioning society as the central element to define legitimacy instead of the individual. The state must protect the state and not the individual or minority.

You better fly over to North Korea and let Kim Jong Un know about this fact! He is not being a communist!

In the individual case it is hard to tell, but the entries are consistent in their attempt to destabilize legitimacy of "Western" ideas. This is a declared intention of Russian military doctrine and had been pointed out by Clinton, when she was SoS but widely ignored. I run into these types in fora in German, French and English. We should realize, that we are in the midst of an ideologically waged Cold War and that this is one of the tools of the trade.

Whether this is a demonstration of the phenomenon is nearly impossible to tell, but for me it has that feel to it. But forbidding the expression of the ideas is not the way to go.
