He was afraid to fly in planes, so he opted to travel in armored trains, which is where he died.

I think this is the correct answer. Kim Jong il was a leader of a state sponsored cult...people are unable to think for themselves..they are cut off from the outside world and constantly mind-f**ked through their media. When he died, his media said that he died over being overworked helping his people. :roll: But they have no choice but to believe it is true. Mind control is very powerful...if they have nothing to reference their situation to, how do they know their leader is a cruel dictator when the media is always telling them how wonderfuly he loves them??
He has always presented himself as a god to them. Even though he was cruel to them, he was still their god...now their god is dead, They weep out of the uncertanity to come...right now they feel totally disconnected as the one person that held their beliefs, culture and way of life is suddenly no more.

The only way for them to be free is to realize the cult for what it is...but the media and the government wont let that happen....the transition to Un will be seamless as the people are looking for something to piece them back together...no matter how badly they suffer, they dont believe it is caused by him, but by "outside forces" .
Any weakness on his part to fix their economy and the famine was blamed on outside forces. They had no choice but to believe him.

Exactly. Some sort of V For Vendetta style thing should happen, really, but obviously it's just not going to in reality.

"Whoever controls the present, controls the past. Whoever controls the past, controls the future."


True ...so true.

here is also what I was trying to say without knowing the word for it.... A mass scale stockholm syndrome

Actually it looks like a mid to late 70s model, thus predating the PRC's entry into the UN and possibly predating Mao Tse-Tung's death.

They bought it used. From China. ;)

It is possible they bought it in any country and smuggled it on a ship. NK get a lot of their goods that way. Especially luxury goods for the ruling elite, and WEAPONS. But why bother with ship and smuggling when they could have just bought the car in China and driven it across the border.

His policies led to wide spread starvation of his own people. His Army ate well. The rest of the population had to go on short rations. He also had his political enemies killed. He was a bad evil tyrant and it is good that he his dead. Qualitatively there is very little difference between the late Kim and Josef Stalin.
