Yeah you are both right ,but i believe it will definitively collapse a day , the international community must work on this with the help of the neighboring countries ,

Would you change your country if u believed it was the best one?
They don't wanna change because in their opinion their country is the best in the world!
Nobody knows what happens outside and who knows something often is re-educated in their labour camps.
Besides this, Socialist system there provides many benefits ( free home, education, cultural activities, sport ) and so when people don't work, they spend their time in another way.
They live in a typical communist society where all people receive everything they need but of course they never life in affluence.
If you mix these things and u take into consideration that China higly supports the regime, than you know what North Korean system is far from collapsing

You are right Daniele ,but don't forget there was a famine couple of years ago and hundred of thousands of people died there , honestly i searched on a way on the internet to contact the ordinary people there but i could't find ,the brutal communist regime even cut the web service there , but still i believe that we can make the change and help those people .

I agree but famine was unleashed by natural elements - rains - and not by the government. i wish as well a reunification with south korea - though with demilitarized and free peninsula. Nevertheless i'm afraid it won't happen very soon. Regime perfectly manoeuvres the country and the people, and for China having a buffer state it's a big advantage they don't wanna loose. The only way to blow the regime away would be the military solution. But this would be a catastrophe becuz North Koreans owns nuclear weapons and the fourth biggest army in the world. Besides China would support them, so we have to wait.

you don't live in a closed state like north korea.

most people don't even know how the world is outside of their country. how would u expect them to revolt against the dictators? other arab states are nothing like north korea.

Has anyone read or listened to Melanie Kirkpatrick discuss her book "Escape From North Korea"?

Since Korean war (still not resolved) about 24,000 North Koreans (out of 24 million) escaped to South Korea, while many more (250,000) join Koreans living in China. More women than men escape, driven by a lucrative trade in "arranged marriages." Border guards are armed to kill, survivors/escapees returned to prison gulags. 200,000 North Koreans are "political" prisoners for crimes ranging from Bible possession, disrespect for leader's portraits, or just being related to escapees.
