Profile of the new leader of North Korea, its future, and recurring problems. Kim Jong-Un is the new godlike "Great Leader" of the country after his father, Kim Jong-Il's death. This video is NOT about communism and it is NOT about America. It's about North Korea and its relationship to the outside world, as well as Kim-Jong-Un's probable future as leader. I put a link below about how Kim Jong-Il removed references to communism in the revision to the nation's constitution in 1998. The video discusses what we can expect or not expect from the new leader, and if relations will change because of Il's death. *NOTE*: Every source given below, except for the Aljazeera inside story, has been entirely read, watched, and reviewed by myself. (AJ watched halfway). I have watched all the documentaries given in the description from beginning to end, have read all the articles, and seen all the photos given. Every source given in this description has been used for the making of this video. All documentaries and articles provided contributed to my research. I am not an IR or North Korean expert, just a girl with a Political Science Associate's degree who is interested in North Korea, as it is one of the most intriguing regimes in the modern world. Also, if you are a "North Korea-Oppression-Denier" you really need to watch some of the documentaries provided and do more research. While I admit there are good, although small, things about the country, it DOES and IS oppressing its people. In conclusion, most Americans are NOT allowed into North Korea. Therefore, most of the footage and interviews and even article info is from non-American sources. Also, there are thousands who have escaped from North Korea and a lot of them have given personal testimony as to what went on when they lived there. In one of the documentaries, you will learn of a man who had worked as a prison guard in the concentration camps and witnessed the horrible things they did there. If you are a denier, please review your research before you say something stupid and offensive.

JUCHISM IN RELATION TO MARXISM, STALINISM, AND MAOISM: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juche "In 1972, Juche replaced Marxism-Leninism in the revised North Korean constitution as the official state ideology, this being a response to the Sino-Soviet split. Juche was nonetheless defined as a creative application of Marxism-Leninism. Kim Il-sung also explained that Juche was not original to North Korea and that in formulating it he only laid stress on a programmatic orientation that is inherent to all Marxist-Leninist states. After the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, North Korea's greatest economic benefactor, all reference to Marxism-Leninism was dropped in the revised 1998 constitution."
