Politics of North Korea
I suggest you start with her.
The democratic people’s Republic was founded 9.09.1948 year.
North Korea policy is built so that almost everything is under
the control of one person. This country is a real example of a cult
personality – Kim Il – Sung, the founder and first ruler (1972-1994
gg.). He will forever remain the eternal President of the country (in 1998, this
the post was abolished). The birthday of Kim Il-Sung (April 15) in 1997
year announced the celebration of the Sun!
His son, Kim Jong Il – his docile successor. After his father’s death (1994
G.) he was appointed first great leader (official
position), then the General Secretary of the workers ‘ party of Korea
(the only party to have political power in the country). And after
a year later he was elected and the Chairman of the State Committee of defense
(elected for five years). Currently it is the highest position in
the country, providing the guidance all forces in the country
(political, military, economic).
The primary state ideology is Juche (the idea of eternal President Kim
Il-Sung). In the center of this ideology is the people. The man – a master,
Builder, the driving force of the new society. In other words, Northern
Korea is a country of independent people who don’t need anybody, because
they can do everything themselves. This principle is absolute justification
the closeness of the DPRK from the outside world. The leadership of North Korea is trying,
the country was independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and,
able to protect themselves on their own, in defense. The government
strictly adheres to the principles of Juche, moving towards
the socialist society. The system of state control remains
unchanged for over half a century.
1956 is a turning point for the DPRK. In North Korea (as in
Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary) – a political crisis. Kim Il Sung was accused of
the spreading of the cult of personality and dictatorship. However, he not only survived, but
and he consolidated his power, strengthened the cult of his personality.
The DPRK is a country in which all are equal. In it all I think, say,
believe (many atheists), and even move the same way (mass
sports show). There is strict control over all printed
products and serious restrictions of freedom of speech. Almost complete
the lack of democratic traditions. Note, all this more
least homogeneous mass of people exists due to the fact that in the period
1945-1953 gg. most dissatisfied with (the representatives of the intellectual and
religious circles) left the country, moving to neighbouring South
Korea. But also because of the forced relocation of Japanese, who, in
mainly were representatives of the economic, managerial and
the cultural elite. No equivalent can be used, wherever occurred on such a scale
outflow potential “disgruntled” people.
Khrushchev’s reforms that occurred in many socialist countries in
1955-1960 in North Korea were stopped at the very beginning of its development.
Instead, liberalization was followed by the strengthening of the cult of personality. The result
destroyed the economy and international sanctions began long
food in the second half of 1990-ies. On
some reports have died from starvation hundreds of thousands of people.
The DPRK’s foreign policy aimed at friendship with many countries of the world,
who sympathize with and help the Korean people in building
socialism. However, after the government made
the decision that North Korea resumes nuclear program, it has become
in the rogue state. April 14, 2009 nuclear center in Yongbyon resumed
its work. The country is not against complete nuclear disarmament, but
assuming that the U.S. will agree to direct talks with North Korea. It
