So I'm a North Korean Workers Party cadre and I'm having a look at Rodong Sinmun, trying to read the runes coming out from party central. And what do I find?
What the officials in the DPRK desire most at present is to work in such a manner as to be remembered by leader Kim Jong Il. They should work so devotedly that they may be always remembered by him even after their death.
Via Adam Cathcart. Ah right. So a sixty eight year old man with chronic kidney failure who came out of a serious stroke a few years back is going to outlive me. The thing is, I'd already be expecting some kind of purge/reshuffle attendant on the succession of Kim Jong-un, but maybe not a casual hint that I wouldn't be around to see it. I suppose I could interpret it as a kind of ritual statment of loyalty. But then again, perhaps not.
