North Korea Abuses Human Rights: Tell Us Something We Don't Already Know

•, Ivan Eland
Yet public criticism of its human rights record by international bodies, such as the United Nations, and individual states, such as the Unite States, usually causes North Korea to deny it, then fume, and then continue or escalate the abusive practices just to spite the international community.
And Kim Jong-un, the young ruler of North Korea, may be even more ruthless and erratic than his despotic father, Kim Jong-il, and grandfather, Kim Il-sung. Yet the almost 65-year U.S.-led effort to isolate this regime has failed--as also has the 55-year attempt to do the same with the Castro brothers in Cuba. In both cases, isn't it time to try alternatives to these "isolationist" policies?

What is interesting is that both North Korea and Cuba are two of the few remaining countries in the world that have not embraced the International Monetary Fund and the worldwide banking cartel.

N.K. and Cuba do what they do out in the open. The other countries do it in secret and lie about it, trying to cover it up.

In the United States, how long has police brutality been as BIG as it is now? And how do we know? It's only been the last few years that police brutality has been surfacing because of the Internet and cellphone videos. Maybe this stuff has been going on since the time of Bonnie and Clyde, and Elliot Ness and the Untouchables, and we just never heard about it!
