North Korea is one of the absolute worst totalitarian regimes ever created my mankind. North Korea is last in place in terms of civil liberties and human rights, and is an all too real rebirth of the worst aspects of the Soviet Union under Stalin's rule and Nazi Germany.
Just like many other communist dictatorships, North Korea puts up the façade of it being a paradise for everyone, especially the working class, but the monstrously ugly truth is that only the "elite" in North Korean society reap the promised benefits by the government. Practically everyone else lives in the most horrid of poverty where its common to see people starving to death in the middle of village roads. Even worse, there's plenty of political prison camps that are so deplorable, even the most nefarious Nazi and NKVD officers would be shaken up a little by the sheer cruelty at the hands of the North Korean government. The North Korean government ultimately crushes any form of dissent with their extremely hideous "guilt by association" policy, where the family members of individuals accused of political crimes are sent to these concentration camps.
While the day may not happen in my lifetime, the day North Korea's regime gets toppled and its ultimately detestable leadership gets their comeuppance will be one of the best in human history.
