Propaganda: This Is How North Koreans Think Americans Live


This is, apparently, a bit of North Korean propaganda illustrating, not very accurately, how Americans live.

I’d say it’s a fake, but then real North Korean propaganda is so over the top that it probably isn’t.

My favorite part is when the US is hit for our gun violence. I’m certain that we do have more guns, and more gun violence, than North Korea. But then that’s because North Korea is a cruel dictatorship that would almost certainly be overthrown immediately if they started letting their citizens arm themselves.

I’ll take America’s deaths from gun violence over North Korea’s deaths from sickness, starvation and state-sponsored killing any day of the week.

One of the reasons why Americans embrace the individual right to keep and bear arms is so we never, ever end up with a government like North Korea has.
