Long Hair People stay out of North korea!

Postby SHOCKandAWE » Tue Feb 01, 2005 1:25 pm

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea's (search) communist government is waging war against men with long hair, calling them unhygienic anti-socialist fools, and even leader Kim Jong Il (search) has trimmed his famous bouffant locks.

The hair campaign comes as North Korea's dictatorship struggles to tighten its control over information, monitor its population and dictate cultural tastes.

It is directing men to wear their hair "socialist style," deriding shabbily coifed men as "blind followers of bourgeois lifestyle."

North Korea's state-run Central TV even identifies violators by name and address, exposing them to jeers from other citizens.

"We cannot help questioning the cultural taste of this comrade, who is incapable of feeling ashamed of his hair style," the station said Monday, showing a Mr. Ko Gwang Hyun, whose unkempt hair covered his ears.

"Can we expect a man with this disheveled mind-set to perform his duty well?" the announcer asked.

The government, which demands unquestioning allegiance and controls all publications and broadcasts, is growing wary of outside influence seeping in.

Foreign broadcasts penetrate the country through smuggled transistor radios. As North Korea's economic woes persist, more North Koreans are traveling to China to seek food — and are exposed to the rapidly spreading capitalist culture there. CDs containing South Korean songs and TV dramas — popular in most of Asia — are reportedly smuggled into the North.

Next everyone will be required to wear replicas of Kim Jong Il's Haray Caray specs so that all may acheive 'true communist vision'.

Maybe we should drop an A-BOMB in N Korea and call it the Big Mullet or Little Fro?

So I guess you're a Commie supporter then. Oh wait, aren't you from Canada? Almost the same thing! ;-7

I understand that you are Korean or Asian or something along those lines, but what the N.Korean government is doing is not beneficial for it's citizens. Don't you agree? When I call them bastards, I'm not talking about the people per say, but those in power who suppress the masses from any freedom of expression.

To negotiate with them is the same as giving in to blackmail. Let them suffer the same fate as the USSR. Or maybe we should just bend over backwards for them and give them anything they want, setting an awful precedent. So isolation is the best alternative, IMO.

OK, I promise no more politics. :-[
