The King is dead.  Long live the King.

A while back, some American eye doctors went to North Korea and did cataracts surgery constantly.  When they took the cataracts out, they praised Kim Jong-Il out of fear of the man rather than thank the doctor.  For some reason, it is not enough for these dictators to live high while those below starve (literally) to death.  They also want to be loved.  If they can’t be loved for real, they will pay people to pretend to love them or will make people pretend to love them through fear.  This clip is no different.

The man is evil.  The world is better off without him.  However, I have no illusions that democracy will break out.  However, perhaps his successor will be just a little less brutal.  This could be a case where the successor allows just a little bit of freedom, and if that happens, it will eventually set off a chain reaction that will destroy the oppressive regime like Russia with Stalin and Gorbachev.

A man can dream, right?
