North Korea. What could one say about that place, for the last 70 years? It has been known as a place that had gone beyond Full Retard or Full Commie. In the whole world, perhaps Albania was the only other country that had turned up the stupidity dial up to 11. America has kept up with North Korea more, of course, due to the war there and then the nearly 70 years now of having 20-30 thousand soldiers, sailors, and airmen defending one group of Koreans from another group of Koreans*.
What we've got going on today, however, is a reversal of of the stupidity curve. Perhaps our great Economists with their brilliant technical methods, could have predicted this. What's happened with North Korea is that the Kung Flu stupidity in most of the rest of the world has not only surpassed that in N. Korea, but this vector of stupidity is so large in magnitude that N. Korea may have an actual lower en-Total stupidity level! (Our technicians are still crunching the data.)
Here's the general story on this stupidity upheaval from my astute source out of the Middle Kingdom:
Beside having likely accidentally let this latest nasty flu-like bug out of lab a couple of years ago, China has been a big part of the Kung Flu story for other reasons. The Chinese authorites were supposed to have had the best Totalitarian "response" to the virus of anywhere around the world, or maybe 2nd to New Zealand. Then there has been a story that Peak Stupidity has covered the first part of this year, their new efforts at Covid-Zero - better tasting LOCKDOWNs, but less filling.
As for the vaccine, where this post actually starts, the Chinese have been making and taking some more vaccine-like vaccine rather than the gene-therapy "vaccine" that much of the rest of the world has been. I doubt it has been acting any more of a vaccine than what we've been seeing, but it's probably not hurting as many people. However, for whatever reason (my source says that China, as in Pooh-Bear Xi, is beholden to the Deep State, but I don't see how**), they have been slated to receive billions of doses of Pfizer vaccine - not sure if that''ll happen.
Throughout these 7 decades of Totalitarianism dialed up to 11, the Kims of N. Korea who have run the Hermit Kingdom could do pretty much whatever the hell they wanted to, to the poor bastards that had the misfortune to inhabit that land. The people have been either forced to worship these men or actually brainwashed to believe these guys were gods.*** Lots of the Kim's efforts have been to keep their (literally) people from knowing there was another, better way of life. One could understand how the Chinese would sympathize with these efforts during their own hard-core Commie period and support the nation****.
However, North Korea's antagonism toward anything Western back when it was mostly good may have have carried over to this time in which the Western World is as full of stupidity as the next. It's that or the latest Mr. Kim is simply using his common sense, but the North Koreans did not implement a Kung Flu PanicFest as most of the Western World did. Well, they already had Totalitarianism, so perhaps they weren't so awfully motivated on that. They could LOCKDOWN any place at any time they wanted - hell, the whole country was on LOCKDOWN since the 1950s. Additionally North Korea has already had serious border control, so it would "keep out the covid".
The Covid-Zero stupidity was mentioned earlier in regard to China. Who knows how much extra sickness or death, if any, their was there during the last 2 1/2 years, but at this point the newest strains of the Kung Flu are even less of a big deal. N. Korea has stupidly done some LOCKDOWNs this year, cause "CASES!", but one thing the latest Kim isn't doing is vaccinating his population.
Finally we get to the funny part here. That lack of mandatory vaccination program, that could be done with a snap of a Kim's finger, or maybe the implementation of a mandatory Nonvaccination program even, has the Chinese big-wigs really pissed off. You can't go around acting like the Kung Flu is no big deal, right on the doorstep, well, in the crawl space, of Xi's Middle Kingdom, in which it is most certainly A BIG DEAL. That could prove to be an embarrassment to ... somebody ... Nobody over there likes losing face.
North Korea has had a famine lately, something not altogether unexpected from a centrally-planned economy. Because the Chinese big shots are pissed off at the North Korean big shots for not doing the vaccine, the Chinese have decided to withhold food aid to that nation.
The Orient has proven at times to be just as much of a shit-show as the West had been lately. This is one of those times.
As for the Hermit Kingdom sorry-assed nation of North Korea, I gotta say that it's a pretty sad day when an American is out here saying:
* That old post of ours is about immigration stupidity - these guys there for the last almost 3/4 century (NO, not the same guys!) could completely cover the US southern border from invasion with 1/2 the men to spare!
** In fact, I think it may be or will be the opposite before long...
*** I remember watching a video about an expert American eye doctor who spent 10 days doing 1,000 eyesight restoration surgeries in N. Korea, using his special visa to even enter the place. After all his generous efforts, the formerly blind people thanks Dear Leader Kim rather than this wonderful doctor.
**** The Chinese are said to have lost something like 1 million men during the Korean War.
