Any North Koreans Found Not To Have Cried Hystrically At Kim Jong-Il's Passing May Spend 6 Months In A Labor Camp

Tyler Durden's picture


Well, it is a slow news day, so we focus on the patently absurd, such as this news out of Interfax confirming that TheOnion can now close up shop as reality is far, far better. From Interfax: "North Korean citizens, who did not take part in the mourning ceremonies for the country’s late Leader Kim Jong-il, are facing up to six months in labor camps, Interfax reported January 11. According to the South Korean media sources, “People’s Courts” took place all over the country starting December 29 to condemn those who did not show enough emotion after the death of “the great leader” Kim Jong-il. The People’s Court hearings were reportedly over by January 8. The behavior of those people, who criticized the three-generation principle of ruling the country, was also a matter of discussion during the court meetings.  It was reported earlier that 2012 calendars were fully taken out of stores because the date of death of the late Leader Kim Jong-il was not marked in them." That said, we doubt anyone will punish the capital markets for crying hysterically should Bernanke's printer finally kicks the ghost.

This reminds me of ObaMao's Informal Inauguration in Chicago, with tears of joy, flowing down the faces, against a stage & props (like huge, styrofoam/EIFS Roman Columns) lifted right from a broadway production of Julius Caesar. Hope & Change (now hopeless without spare change) ringing loudly sharply in the cold November Chicago air:


Anyways, since this is a slow news day, and going off topic, I have proof that The Mayans were correct in their assessment and timing:

My family and I were on vacation over Christmas break and the TV in the breakfest area in the hotel we stayed was tuned to CNN. (I would never turn that crap on in my own home) They were, that morning, showing video footage of Kim's funeral.  My 11 year old saw the people's exagerated reaction to his death and looked at me with a puzzled face.  He said "Dad, why are those people acting like that?" I expalined to him what kind of regime those people live under in N. Korea and if they didn't pretend to be so upset, they would probably be killed or arrested.  I will use this ZH article, tonight,  as an excellent example to teach him of they kind of propoganda he will be facing as he goes through his adult life. 

Teach your children to be wisely skeptical.  It's up to you as a parent. They don't teach that skill in public school.

I recall reading Solzhenitsyn's 2nd or 3rd hand description of a party meeting wherein the Great Stalin appeared at the head table. Supposedly, all rose and cheered; enthusiatic clapping erupted. The clapping continued, 5 minutes, 10, 15 minutes! None dared stop clapping for fear of being accused of some bogus antiparty sentiment and being thrown into the labor camps.  People began collapsing from the stress. Finally, someone stopped clapping and everybody else soon followed and sat down. Afterwards, the clap stopper was charged and sentenced to 10 years hard labor.

Dear Momauguin Joe,

I consider ZH as place where you meet some more intelligent people capable of reasoning. So please, let me consider your story not as bullshiting, but as lack of knowledge about the period and Solzhenitsyn himself.

First of all Solzhenitsyn is a liar. He was caught lying so many times, that they’ve published some books where true historians scientifically point where he is wrong, where he is lying and where he is clearly out of his mind. Really. The guy was telling that 50 mln. where sitting in gulags. That’s like every second man, woman and child in exUSSR. Totally nuts.

Secondly, such as stories as this “clapping story” really could not take place. Really. Better not say such things in public.

Sorry for this “lesson”.

This was the 6th (SIXTH) conviction he had for burglarizing people's homes, and his defense stated "Thompson said his client was not a career criminal and that he was simply attracted to “shiny things.”... yeah, the burglaries that he actually got caught for started when he was teenager, expanded over a  15 year period, picked up steam with 4 convictions in 2009, and culminated with this 6th conviction in which he was attracted to the shiny things that he later sold to a pawn shop. I cannot imagine a better place for this guy to be then in prison.

US schools with their own police

Each day, hundreds of schoolchildren appear before courts in Texas charged with offences such as swearing, misbehaving on the school bus or getting in to a punch-up in the playground. Children have been arrested for possessing cigarettes, wearing "inappropriate" clothes and being late for school.

From first-hand experience I can say that Texas schools are now indeed an absolute police state.  Not just urban schools, but out in the sticks as well.  Full-time Constables with drug dogs patrolling the halls, closed campuses, and regular locker and backpack searches are all considered normal.  God forbid your child drive a parent's car to school and the constable finds one of the parent's Tylenols, or a single round of ammunition in the truck from bird hunting last weekend.

no; it's because the SYSTEM is suicidal.

Re-read the Stalin post above and my response to it.

There is NOBODY in PRK who liked Dear Leader.  Yet every single one of them goes along with the system despite 100% opposition to it.

If any of you have a JOB, you can see this right in front of you.  NOBODY is willing to risk ostracism for challenging consensus.  There are actually psychological and mammalian studies on social groups that demonstrate that fear of exclusion is considered actually worse than death if you consider the behaviors of social animals.

A herd of humans will march in lockstep toward a goal the opposite of what ALL individuals desire.  And, if one breaks ranks, others WHO AGREE will be the very ones who lead that person off to execution.  And they might, in a quiet moment, confide in the condemned, "yes, I agree with you, sorry."  And they will still pull the trigger.

I see this same thing here on ZH; it is a an utterly confounding artifact of human psychology.  It was far more profound on tickerforum.  People who would argue with me and seek to have me banned would send private messages confessing total agreement with my position.  It happens in meetings where I dissent.  Those who agree WILL NOT RISK voicing their agreement and will actually oppose the message of dissent but then off the record, in the hallway, yeah, I agree 100%.

This shit happens all the time.  Our systems are marching us toward self-destruction.

We prefer the term "anti-fiat bugs who happen to have a preference for the ugly red-headed step child of the precious metals".

Really, ______bugs is such a perjorative.  Scratch a so-called gold or silver bug and you will just find someone who is anti-fiat, and just happens to think the precious metals offer the best inverse correlation to fiat debasement - among the multitude of others (land, copper, machinery, woodlots, firearms, ammo etc etc).

So in my mind, using the term gold/silver bug is on par with using the term "lover of debased/soon to be debased fiat".

In 2010, the police gave close to 300,000 "Class C misdemeanour" tickets to children as young as six in Texas for offences in and out of school, which result in fines, community service and even prison time. What was once handled with a telling-off by the teacher or a call to parents can now result in arrest and a record that may cost a young person a place in college or a job years later.

MachoMan's picture

That's the problem...  you don't need express quotas when everyone inherently knows you're supposed to write tickets and bring in the revenue.  The kicker?  Pissant tickets end up getting families on the municipal court treadmill...  often resulting in an escalation of crimes or disintigration of the family due to the demands of the court, e.g. fines, costs, community service, jail time, lost jobs, etc.  Aside from the fact that any young people wanting jobs may be required to disclose these arrests...  as well as to any professional licensing boards, etc.

The whole thing is designed to (and if not has the effect of) creating a class system. 

[if you have any money in the situation of a citation, you lawyer up and get the crap thrown out or reduced, the fine paid (if any), and you move on...  possibly exerting political pressure (where available) on the teacher(s) and/or officer(s) who ratted on or arrested your kid to ensure they don't make the same mistake twice...  if necessary, you follow everything up with an expungement and/or pardon].

See the treadmill every day.

1. Is there still truly ROI from going to college in the future as opposed to perhaps working your way up?  With UK uni fees now c.GBP£40k by the end of the 4 years its quite a nice sunk-cost debt collar to be wearing underneath those graduation robes.

2. What jobs?

LOL, that's like asking, "Where are the trolls?"

Look Robo, you are completely transparent in your sell-side-like selective bias and repeated attempts at disinformation dissemination. It's also very obvious you work for one of the establishments responsible for injecting the mass lie. Seeing your lack of creativity or spark of any intellectual presence day in and day out leads me to the assessment that your affiliation is with a MSM, TBTF, hedge fund or market related govt entity.

No one here is suckered by your horseshit, and the fact that doesn't stop you, (even through huge negative feedback), only serves to reinforce my assessment of your challenged intellect, morals, and ethics.

You are a pure bottom feeding leech of an institutional troll, and a shining example of why ZH exists…not to mention, flourishes.

A bill the Senate is debating, at this very moment, would impose similar penalties on Americans that haven't wept profusely and gnashed their teeth over the resignation of Fannie CEO Michael J. Williams. And about time too, the riff-raff have no idea how systemically important their betters are.

PLEASE e-mail your Congressman in support of this important legislation.

"It was reported earlier that 2012 calendars were fully taken out of stores because the date of death of the late Leader Kim Jong-il was not marked in them."

This is only partially true.  The real reason is that for Il's birthday, the calendar wished him "good health" for the coming year.

By presidential order following the passage of the NDAA anyone found not voting for Obama  in the 2012 election will be subject to permanent exile to Mexico. All assets will be turned over to an American black who was unfairly taken advantage of by predatory lenders. Each American sent to Mexico will be traded for a Mexican or allowance of an illegal to assume the identity of the exile. With no oppositon Obama will be declared emporer of America and forever on only a puppet of the global elite will be allowed to rule.
