I have been meaning to post about North Korea, but got diverted first by the student protests, then by a few hours' hedgelaying, then again by protests.
All I would like to say is that dictators like Kim Il Sung in North Korea are not just a burden on their people, but a threat to world peace.
Which is why I propose that the UN should put in place a system that discourages the development of dictators in a methodical, fair and consistent way.
Fuller discussion here.
If anyone disagrees with the proposal, by all means come up with a better idea.
