Author:
Arron Miller
Abstract:

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, also known as the Hermit Kingdom has instituted a cult of personality that virtually shut down the country’s progress. The pursuit of self-reliance through a military first policy has isolated North Korea from the rest of the world and forced its infrastructure to the edge of collapse.  Three generations of one family’s rule has bred an oppressive regime that has is able to hide behind a veil of extreme social control.
