Years ago, as the Soviet Union's network of puppet satellites in eastern Europe was crumbling, the purest avatar of communism who ever lived pointed out that western democracies are hypocrites:
[Dead and deified North Korean dictator] Kim Il-sung said in a  New Year's address that Seoul had built a massive concrete wall to divide the two states, which are technically still at war.
The wall has been described by North Korean press as between five and eight meters high. It is made of concrete. It divides the Korean peninsula. It was built by reactionary South Korean fascists in the 1970s, and continues, in 2009, to frustrate the ambition of the Korean people for peaceful reunification.
Of course, the wall may exist. I could be wrong, and the Great Leader Kim Il-Sung, the eternal president of Korea, could be right. My brother-in-law, who serves in Korea, hasn't mentioned the wall. But what does he know? He isn't Korean. He doesn't even speak Korean. Or perhaps he does, and he's just fooling me. Perhaps he's one of THEM.
You know … THEM. They're the same people who keep you from being happy. The same people who built that wall.
Via Colin Samuels, who is probably one of THEM, too.
