Irony of and for North Korea

North Korea.

One of, if not the most repressive government on the planet, now has a Youtube, Twitter, and apparently a Facebook account. Of course that government only uses them to spread propaganda across the internet.

Propaganda, that of course, no one believes.

After reading the articles about this on the internet, I'm not sure if I should laugh at the irony or not.

Here we have a government that is so repressive that if George Orwell was still alive he would probably sue it for copyright infringement, and here they are, using three internet sites that allot people use to express their ideals, many of which would make a average North Korean citizen "disappear" if they themselves expressed the same kinds of ideals.

But, here is the great thing about this! They are going to have to endure the wrath of everyone who hates that regime enough that those people will express their wrath in the form of comments, and there is the very real chance of someone hacking and deleting, or taking over the accounts.

And there is not a thing they can do about it either!

Have fun!
