NORTH KOREA: Let Them Eat Nothing. “North Korea is trying to avoid food shortages by ordering more people to leave their regular jobs and spend 30 days (May 15- June 15) helping out with planting the rice crop. This year it includes university students. If you have the money, you can bribe your way out of this chore. About a third of the students manage to pay the bribe. That is annoying enough but then about a third of the students who go to the farms get out of about half the work because they are those who work as informers for the government.”
Remember, they sell communism on the basis of equality. But, of course, it doesn’t work out that way. And to be honest, it was never actually meant to.
