Kim Jong Il is dead

Just read about it in this article
Apparently he died after a train ride from exhaustion(?). What do you guys think this is going to mean for the world?

Burn in hell! Just hours after the news came out and they're now conducting missile tests. Looks like his successor's as big a nut case a he was.

'nuff said.

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

It's funny how crazy the news media is getting. They are spreading rumors about collapse and war all over the place. Well, I suppose that anything is possible but could his son really be more crazy than the father? At least the father had an ok hold on things as far as we know.

Most likely they'll slowly allow economic reforms (like China did with Shenzhen in the 80s) and start to open up though I can't see it happening straight away, especially with the status quo remaining in charge. It's a shame there's no one like Deng Xiaoping who's willing to admit communism has failed and do something about it.

Yeah North Korea will eventually have to catch up to the rest of the world and il's death is a step backwards for NKorea because it looks like he was trying to open up trade with US for some food aid because the country is very low on food production at the moment. If the son does not accept the Food package, it could lead to regional collapse.

And yes, Communism failed and can never be implemented worldwide humans are too greedy!

It's hard to see how North Korea could open up under the current regime though.

Imagine if they started to open up and let foreigners in like China did in the 80s. Sooner or later people from the outside are going to start telling the people the truth about their 'God' leaders, as soon as this happens there'll be rioting and the party members will be hung on the streets. I mean Gadaffi was a shit to his people but this is on a whole other level, the country is a prison camp. You can't just expect North Korea to transition to an open society without blood being spilt. Look at the trouble South Korea had getting to where it is today.

I was watching a video today about some n.korean refugees and my eyes almost teared. one of the many shocking things was that some locals think that their leader created the world. Furthermore math clases are really short, the just teach them how to add and subtract.

---Can we discuss about this?---- This is a serious matter. We are talking about the most isolated country in the world.

NK has signs of weakening in the structure. With the amount of smuggling that's probably occurring near the border and a few recent reforms, the NKer's might clamor for some sort of change. It'll be within their own view of things for the most part since all they know is their own country but it's certainly possible. It's gonna be hard getting such a rigid society and government to change. Oh they just completed their long-range rocket pad installation. (Yonhap news)

"Since we first emerged, a few million years ago in East Africa, we have meandered our way around the planet. There are now people on every continent and the remotest islands, from pole to pole, from Mount Everest to the Dead Sea, on the ocean bottoms and even, occasionally, in residence 200 miles up - humans, like the gods of old, living in the sky."
