The last bat shit Stalinist dies---Kim Jong Il

HereThe last, with the possible exception of Lukaschenko in Byelorussia and the former Central Asian Communist cum Muslim Nationalist leaders. My hope is that North Korea will completely collapse and be absorbed into South Korea. While other states have transitioned to democratic governance and have had groups that tried get them to go on their own path, neither capitalist nor authoritarian (and have not succeeded, unfortunately), North Korea isolated itself to such an extent that I can't see a "Democracy with North Korean Characteristics" approach working. Its model is gone and should be buried with the country itself.
