1. Suppressing the forces of reaction in a world where capitalism and imperialism are trying to undermine socialism is not the same as oppression. That being said DPRK isn't perfect and I never said it was. 2. The "muh freedoms" enjoyed in the west come at a high cost and are largely illusory anyways. 3. WPK enjoys wide support in DPRK and the people have the right of self determination. What exactly is the oppression you think is so severe there? 4. It's a meme Edit: typo

>Why do the anti-authoritarians not confine themselves to crying out against political authority, the state? All socialists are agreed that the state, and with it political authority, will disappear as a result of the coming social revolution, that is, that public functions will lose their political character and become mere administrative functions of watching over social interests. But the anti-authoritarians demand that the political state be abolished at one stroke, even before the social relations that gave birth to it have been destroyed. They demand that the first act of the social revolution shall be the abolition of authority. > >Have these gentlemen ever seen a revolution? A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is an act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon, all of which are highly authoritarian means. And the victorious party must maintain its rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionaries. Would the Paris Commune have lasted more than a day if it had not used the authority of the armed people against the bourgeoisie? Cannot we, on the contrary, blame it for having made too little use of that authority? Therefore, one of two things: either that anti-authoritarians don't know what they are talking about, in which case they are creating nothing but confusion. Or they do know, and in that case they are betraying the cause of the proletariat. In either case they serve only reaction. \-Friedrich Engels, On Authority

I would turn the "how do you know it's not propaganda" back around on you too. A recent example would be Kim Jong-Un standing in front of a newly constructed housing project that will house and feed several thousand familes. The headline in the west: "Kim jong Un wears Hitler jacket." No mention of the real improvements in housing to the families that live there. Sadly you're right, we don't know what is and isn't propaganda regarding DPRK. Military participation is huge there, higher than anywhere else in the world, and it's pretty hard to believe that so many oppressed people wouldn't turn on the "few". Korea enjoys good relationships with many AES states including Cuba and I would hardly call Cuba authoritarian. I strongly suspect as the United States shrinks in influence, we will see opening up in Korea, but for now, I cannot take western sources largely funded by imperialist nations credibly

> but since almost all of those that left it call it a dictatorship That’s not even true… > it make me really doubt that the CIA could have constructed that much fake testimonies while simultaneously silencing "real" ones. The South Korean government is involved in multiple lawsuits regarding its use of isolation as a torture method to make defectors say what they want. After 3 months alone in a small box you will say whatever they ask especially if they have a big check as an incentive as well. They also have strict laws against speaking positively of the DPRK. The secret service of South Korea will harass and stalk you while not approving any passport to leave. Here is the testimony that is suppressed regarding this. There is a lawyer who specializes in these cases and two North Korean defectors who are going against the government and suffering legally for it.

There we go, thank you for linking that excellent PSL film! I was just gonna ask if they had seen it.

Oof. I was really trying here but I fear we are waaaay too far apart. Have you read state and revolution? I'm not trying to be a bitch, but you really think NK defectors are credible? There's a huge industry in ROK devoted to crafting "defectors" for the west. There's a huge financial incentive in it. I get that DPRK is a pretty extreme example, but if we aren't gonna acknowledge PRC, Laos, Vietnam, and Cuba there's nowhere to go from here. I'm glad there's some anarcho-communist territories in Mexico that meet your criteria for AES, but come on, it's a shining example of western chauvinism to completely ignore states in Asia because they don't conform to your exact ideology. Material conditions are different in different places, leading to different outcomes. Kim Il-Sung called it "socialism of our style." Perhaps the people that live in those countries actually have materially benefited from their states. Has it ever occurred to you that they could support them?
