According to Open Radio for North Korea, party officials are already announcing Kim Jong Un’s succession. Me: maybe so, but that doesn’t translate to him holding real power. I’m still waiting for the KNCA tributes to his academic achievements, martial spirit, invention of a new edible grass, and his single-handed responsibility for the Great DOS Attack of 2009. Nor is there any reason to think that KJU would rule differently than his father did. Strawman: But he went to school in Switzerland — those foreign influences! Me: Yes, and we all know his dad’s fondness for western movies, and probably all the internet he wants. It isn’t the king who’ll get subversive ideas from foreign influences.
