    Hard life? Just because there is no conspicuous consumption? Just because one has to work? Just because one does not have 3 autos and 2500 s.f. homes? A hard life is living under capitalism where there is gross income inequality, high crime rates, daily gun violence, rich ignorant pols, racism, religious fanatics preaching their pap, and mindless entertainment in the form of television, music and movies created to entertain 12 year old boys with 8 year old minds.

      I’m not always right but I know DPRK is a feudal Stalinist state, not communist. My sympathies for the horrific treatment Stalin dealt your land.
