What better time for Best Korea to step forward and say,
"See, 'Republic of Korea', what we have been trying to tell you about demoracy and westernization all this time. It's all true. Just look at where it got you. Let us help you, let us free your government from corruption and intrigue. Accept the Kim family into your heart, and work for the best of all Korea."

Yeah, when the best koreans decides to liberate their southern brethren, they will will get a much needed supplement of vitamin B2.

How else are they going to make it?

I find it hard to accept the propaganda that the DPRK is simply 'incapable' of growing the food they need for a balanced diet. Is it an environmental problem? They have no such thing as labor shortages. If it's simply a matter of them not having the seeds to grow the plants that would provide it, then isn't the rest of the world to blame for starving them to death with sanctions that do nothing to slow down their nuclear developments and only encourage the government ever more tightly control food supplies?

Anonymous 17/04/15(Sat)13:56 No. 249 ID: 7337c5

Perhaps they're incapable of growing enough food because they spend their budget on stupid shit like military and nuclear and solid gold toilets for Kim Jong Fatty Fat Fat and the rest of their leadership.

Look at it this way - the civilized world enables them to spend their budget this way by giving them all the food they need to feed their population. Mass starvation would cause the hermit kingdom to either collapse or get overthrown.

Although this is why the world keeps giving them food - the regime would gladly launch every missile and send every soldier off to die before being overcome by their incompetence.

We stopped giving them food for years; then just recently started again, but we never provided them with anything close to enough to feed their population.

>Mass starvation would cause the hermit kingdom to either collapse or get overthrown.
You would think so, but both Kim Il Sung--who caused the mass starvation of his people--and Kim Jong Il--who further exasperated the mass starvation of his people, died in office. Kim Jong Il, if he isn't killed in a very brief nuclear war with Donald Trump, will probably die in office after starving yet another generation of his people.

>the regime would gladly launch every missile and send every soldier off to die before being overcome by their incompetence.
This I believe.

Though this idea is considered heretical by Trump supporters, the US is not the only country in the world.

Also, consider what happened in the Soviet Union after they toppled the Czar. They handed the farms over to idiots in the name of communism, the idiots didn't know how to grow food as well as the previous owners, which led to crop failure and the specter of Russian famine, which led to stealing all of Ukraine's harvests, thereby causing the Holodomor.

The same thing could be at work in North Korea, except with even more graft and corruption because that's how they fly.

No, but the US is the largest--nearly sole--supplier of food-aid to the DPRK. When you say "the civilized world...giving them food", you are effectively talking about the United States. China buys their coal and perhaps some steel; Europe invests in some of their businesses; before sanctions Russia supplied them with military equipment and Iran probably exchanges nuclear materials and weapon designs with them through the black market. Pic related; these countries have legitimate relations with the DPRK (unlike the US, which uses back-channels to deliver aid).

>They handed the farms over to idiots in the name of communism, the idiots didn't know how to grow food.
One of the things most communist countries have failed the hardest at is farming. This isn't exactly how it went down in the USSR. Much like what's happened in the DPKR and the PRC before it, the government attempted to force specific people (unskilled undesirables, peasants, etc.) to work the farms and set limits on production that keep market value high while forbidding anyone outside the designated agricultural sector to do any farming--even for self-subsistence or home gardening. The initial result was a massive decrease in total food output, as many who had produced their own food to survive in their already poor countries were forbidden to do so, and indeed the farms being worked by people who were neither skilled in farming nor motivated to cooperate other than for the sake of their miserable lives--which were pretty fucking miserable.

You could say they more or less intentionally starved millions of their own people to death, but it's not beyond arguing that it was done out of incompetence. In the case of the PRC, Mao seems to have genuinely thought this would lead to prosperity for his people--and still today his people think that it did (they say he's historically equivalent to Abraham Lincoln).

There are parts of the US where if you drive with an Illinois license plate on your car, which have featured Lincoln in the design for decades, you will end up being told to leave the area or worse.

I grew up in one of those places.

It saddens me knowing that there are people who never leave those places.

You don't have to be concerned about them.

They aren't concerned about anything over an hour's drive outside of town.

It's not okay to be saddened by all the inbred flipper babies?

I find them more worrisome than sad. Idiocracy is not a movie; it is Mike Judge's prophetic vision. That future is coming for us.

Anonymous 17/04/23(Sun)06:17 No. 267 ID: 80a7cb

Most everyone who likes to claim that Idiocracy is coming true is doing nothing to fight against that happening by contributing their chromosomes to less retarded babies. This means either that they're either complicit in the dumbing down of the human race or that they don't actually believe it enough to do anything.

So the anti-Idiocracy solution is to become the Duggar family?

Isn't that just insuring it's going to pass?

Anonymous 17/04/23(Sun)09:53 No. 269 ID: 80a7cb

In theory it should be just the opposite because the premise of the movie was that in the future stupid people would outbreed smart people. One obvious solution is to beat the stupid people at their own game.

In practice the results might be skewed by the Dunning-Kruger effect. Everyone will think "hey I'm one of the smart ones," even--or rather, especially--if they're not.

Which would lead to the futility of the whole thing. This is why genocide happens. The best way to ensure a gene becomes more dominant is to make sure the competition doesn't reproduce

Anonymous 17/05/03(Wed)11:56 No. 277 ID: 2194e8

Except genocide is ultimately futile now, humans are too numerous to effectively commit genocide anymore. You can kill a particular tribe of people from a region, but they've spread far beyond that region, to areas where you can't possibly kill them.

This is why anti-globalists hate globalism. The thought of genocide coming to naught because families have spread themselves across the globe fills their primitive monkey brains with dread. They go to bed at night fondling their automatic weapons and the thought that they have no ability to do anything except make the area they live even more of a shithole keeps them awake long into the night.
