- A NSFW Kim Jong Il Comment



He was more of a cartoon character than the NYTimes would have us believe. Regrettably, the nuclear weapons he had were real enough. If only we could have sent him another couple of hundred billion dollars in aid. I'm sure that would have been enough to convince him not build them.

I was watching Kevin Williamson intellectually batter some poor dumb socialist from the LATimes a few months back on a blogginheads post and he said something like the following:

Socialism is either the most unlucky ideology in all of history or there is really something wrong with it as a belief system because everyone it seems to attract turns out to be such monsters.


Hard to find a better description of Kim Jong Il that that. I'll say this much, he certainly lived the dream when it came to totalitarian socialism. He actually did all the things that people like Andy Stern and Van Jones would have us do here. He might not have conquered a continent or exported his socialism across the globe, but no one can say he didn't try it all at home.

Now someone has dropped house on him or something. Good riddance.

(apologies if I have posted this here before.. can't remember)

I have made the following observation about those who are very gun-ho on the socialist / statist form of government; they generally fall into three distinct categories:

1. Weak minded and willed individuals who think a world where they are free of taking any responsibilities for their own lives would be paradise. Saw a lot of this in the OWS crowd across from my office.

2. Those who believe they should be and will be in charge of the system ordering people around. A lot of academics seem to fall into this one.

3. Persons who are intelligent enough to know what kind of hell socialism leads too. They don't care because they want to see the world burn.
