And that talk about periodic mass famines and half of the population living without electricity, running water, or enough food is lies invented by the rest of the world, where people are literally dying in the streets.

"North Korea: Who's brighter at night now, bitch?"

"Come for the poverty, stay for the oppression!"

"Millions for defense, not a penny for food!"
