Hahahaha.. you're right! Problem solved!
But seriously, one might be born in a country where human rights are never heard off, until some western tourist poison's the naive minds of the rural people. Luckily great leader, Kim Jung-il is keeping these white devils and their liberal western lies away from harming the nation like he does with basic health care, education and food.
I was born in a democracy and still live in the same country, but I never have trusted or will trust the powers that be. I do not have to fear for finger chopping goons, but the system is rigid and once accused is the death sentence for the life I've come to enjoy. I can name numerous cases of wrongfully accused that lost it all, thanks to tunnel vision of police and the ministry of justice. Freedom is never given, but always taken.
