washingtonexaminer.com reports: Strict isolation

North Korea is one of the most oppressive, authoritarian countries on earth. Its government goes to great lengths to keep citizens isolated from the rest of the world, with state-run media outlets and limited Internet access to only state-approved government websites.

Prohibited from traveling

North Koreans are not allowed to leave the country, unless they are given permission from the state for situations such as participation in world sporting events. While on furlough, athletes have tried to defect, while others have returned home only to be subjected to torture and public ridicule for losing.

Three generations of punishment

North Korea has a “three generations of punishment” policy. This means that if someone is charged with a crime and sent to a prison camp, their children and grandchildren will also be sent there. North Koreans may even be born in prison camps and spend their entire lives in them. Prisoners are forced into slave labor in gulags as brutal as Nazi concentration camps, according to a Holocaust survivor.

Bizzare laws

There is no individual liberty in North Korea. There is no free speech. It is a crime to criticize the North Korean government, and it is mandated that citizens idolize their leader, Kim Jong Un. It’s also a crime to watch Hollywood movies, make international phone calls, and even choose your own hairstyle. There are only 28 government-approved hairstyles in North Korea.

cbsnews.com reports: UNITED NATIONS -- After a fleeting thawing of tensions between North and South Korea at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, North Korea's U.N. mission on Monday lashed out against what it called "despicable" and "criminal" U.N. sanctions enacted with the intention "of suffocating" individuals' livelihood and public health. "This clearly proves that the U.N. Security Council, overpowered by high-handedness and arbitrariness of the U.S., has only turned into the tool of infringement upon people's right and barbarous state sponsored terrorism," a statement obtained by CBS News said. The angry missive comes after North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho called on the U.N. chief ahead of the Pyeongchang games to recognize the North's "positive developments" in its relations with Seoul and accused the U.S. of "throwing a wet blanket over our efforts."
