    Communist Backed Broadband

    The difference is night and day. South Korea vs. North Korea
    Why communism sucks!

    High-speed Internet connection of 8 megabits per second -- only about average for a South Korean apartment, but nearly eight times the typical broadband speed in US households.

    Internet access is extremely limited in North Korea where people cannot get online without the right political connections. There is an intranet, or internal network, within Pyongyang, but it is unclear how extensive it is.

    Nevertheless, North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is said to be a regular Web surfer and a fan of the Internet. (Hi Kim!)

    South Korea, by contrast, is the most wired country on the world with the world's greatest penetration of high-speed broadband connections. About 65 percent of its 16 million households have access.

    Communication numbers from the CIA World Factbook.

    Internet hosts:

    Last time I checked, North Korea's political system was as far away from "communism" as possible.

    P.S. I'm glad you finally learned that there are TWO Korea's

    Oh, PPS:
    CIA World FACT Book

    HIV/AIDS - adult prevalence rate:
    Definition Field Listing Rank Order
    NA
    HIV/AIDS - people living with HIV/AIDS:
    Definition Field Listing Rank Order
    NA
    HIV/AIDS - deaths:
    Definition Field Listing Rank Order
    NA
    So the NA means that there aren't any AIDS-victims in North Korea?

    Unlikely. Not Available... welcome to yet another place on this Earth where information isn't given out because it's not that important and a matter of national security.

    8 Mbps.. wow, what the heck are those guys using it for? I will buy a postbox in there, put up a computer in it, hook it up to the internet and use it as a server The ultimate DoS tool

    I can play this game. People should stop blaming "capitalism" for social
    problems in the USA and other "capitalist" countries, because the
    system here isn't "true" capitalism, and never has been.

    Sorry to change the subject, but is there another way to describe N. Korea?
    Maybe they practise Fascism. We could call every authoritarian
    regime Fascist, I prefer "communist", it gives me a warm feeling in my
    McCarthyite bones.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    Lol, it is capitalism's fault. At least in the US. There's no social system. Man, theres's a massive amount of bums that which you don't see here.

    I don’t know where you get that from, but once again you find yourself floating in a paper cup wearing a tin-foil hat, congratulations!

    N Korea is molded from Stalinism.

    Communism - a system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single - often authoritarian - party holds power; state controls are imposed with the elimination of private ownership of property or capital while claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people (i.e., a classless society).

    Yeah, including selective knowledge! Citizens in communist states are nothing more than mental midgets, they only know what they read or hear; the history books they read are rewritten.

    Slums like these.
    Examples:CHINA Cuba N Korea Vietnam ect...
    Notice anything?

    I love these quotes,
    “Communism doesn't need a dictator, it just ends up that way.”
    "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely"
    "If communism worked like it was supposed to then it would be one of the best types of governments. However, since people are not perfect and never will be, it ends up being one of the worst types of governments."

    Yeah,communist slums.
    People who actually believe in Communism are idiots/mental midgets!

    I wish Karl Marx was here to **** on mccarthy's grave.

    beside the point. true communism is not stalinism. so thus neg is right, its not true communism, or even close. The idea of a classless society is not to have a ruling aristocracy. The ruler, generally envisioned to be rulers, are mere controllers of the goods, etc. The brightest people of the land, appointed by the people.

    Read marx/engles - the communist manifesto && marx - das kapital

    North Korea, bad bad bad place
    Cuba - marxist at the beginning, castro got corrupt after the death of his good buddy, and my hero che gueverra
    Vietnam - don't know anything about their gov't other than people claimed it was communist, i have a feeling it wasnt

    Lenin was a good marxist, but not the right marxist. communism can indeed work, if it is anarcho-communism. ie the people control the people's goods, their society, etc, and work for the common good. It'd be a boring ass life, but it could work. And don't say it can't because thats utopia and its impossible. - not impossible, humankind didn't used to even domesticate animals, who says they can't form a utopian society someday

    Sure,as soon as something domesticates humans.......but I wouldn't make it in that kind of society.

    No, and there has never been a country that has even come close. Some communes have succeded for a while on a very small scale, but they even tend to break down over time.

    In my opinion, "true communism" will never work untill greed and self centered motivation have been bred out of human beings (of course they won't be human any more then).
