One of the largest mass killings in history - the Bodo league massacre. South Korea concealed and refused to admit it for 40+ years.

I didn’t even know about North Korea’s other political parties until I saw a toot on Mastodon by @nutomic@lemmy.ml. In fact I thought it was an absolute one-man dictatorship. Guess I got roped hook, line, and sinker by propaganda.

The idea that a single person can control a state with millions of people is pure liberalism and individualism. Each state is controlled by a class of people. Today thats usually the bourgeosie or proletariat, in medieval times it used to be the aristocracy.

You’re talking about south korea right?

The video is age restricted so YouTube forces you to sign in to watch it. Invidious can bypass that: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=ktE_3PrJZO0

Top based comments on that video:

This one of those moments when you have the “oh shit everything I know might be false” really eye opening

South Korea’s manipulation and propaganda is like they’re a country created and backed by the USA.

Now I know, how Kim could feed his uncle/nephew/granny to the dogs. The answer is very simple: he didn’t.

A reply: it was originally a satire story by a chinese journalist, but media outlets took it to be true and it blew up (BTW does anyone know where I can find the original satire?)

Just hit me watching this that US has basically committed two genocides on northern Korea. Korean war and the arduous march.

It is also unbelievable how much you get gaslighted when trying to give a nuanced picture of DPRK.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
