North Korean POV revisionism[change source]

While I can appreciate the en:KFA organization's desire to be the web presence for North Korea and to 'correct' misperceptions about en:North Korea, the edit by User:Bjornar is way too much to accept. Nearly every change represents a 'truth' accepted in only one country. I have reverted to the previous version, Sorcha 25 Jun.

You simply cannot change statements like

In 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea.


In 1950, South Korea invaded North Korea ...

without a discussion.

Read if you have a heart. There are things going on so terrible in North Korea that you cannot imagine. North Korea ? What do you think ? Nuclear bombs and Kim Jung Il. But what you really don't know is crucial and so shocking. There is a major famine going on in North Korea. "Kids are literally dying under my hands because there was no food" was a word from a reporter who went to investigate this tragic news. There are over 400,000 refugees from China. Kids ages up to 7-16 are carried away from their families and sent to concentration camps. Kids and Adults are dying every second because of no food in North Korea. For further information google it or look for a video that talks more about this tragedy in YouTube. Thank you-

Telling us this is going to do nothing, nor is telling us there is one of many hundreds to thousands of videos regarding human rights violations in North Korea. It's a sad fact of life, and telling us what we already know is not going to change one bit of it. If you want somthing to change... something about it. (talk) 22:18, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Propaganda?[change source]


I wanted to translate the article into wikipedia where I am active and I find this article very misleading. Examples:

Human Rights Watch says that free religious activities do not exist in North Korea.

Church of Mun seems to be active in Korea.

most countries in the world say that it is really a totalitarian Stalinist dictatorship.

Who exactly? Where is the source?

It is hard for people from other countries to visit North Korea. Visitors must be guided by two army members called "minders"

Well, there are tons of people who go to North Korea. You can buy a tour as per

It is full of propaganda and there is no proof that this all happening in DPRK except for by sources that are not really trusted. I had to translate this from Russian - the criticism and image of DPRK is taken as separate line. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Egerman (talkcontribs)

I have added a section on Religion and culture, mostly copied from enwp; with a little simplification here and there. North Korea is in essence a totalitarian regime; like with other such regimes, it is likely that many people are not religious anymore, though I could not find a ref for that.--Eptalon (talk) 15:27, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

@Eptalon and Egerman sorry for bringing this up 5 years later. Regarding your queries, the church of Mun is a state run church, which is likely propaganda. And it is true that all tour groups to NK must be supervised at all times by at least two people (but not necessarily army people). Hope this answered your questions. -1.02 editor (talk) 11:58, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
