Kim Jong- il (1941-2011)

"...Nobody has engineered the apparatus of universal fiction more effectively, and catastrophically, than the Kim dynasty, which maintained control of a nation that still manufactures transistor radios built to receive only a single station. Where Mao and Stalin succumbed to the sheer scale of their undertakings, Kim Jong-il, and his father, Kim Il-sung, before him, addressed a more manageable canvas and “created one giant Potemkin village”..." (Evan Osnos in The New Yorker). Morreu o ditador norte-coreano Kim Jong-il. Sucede-lhe o filho Kim Jong-un, na monarquia comunista da Coreia do Norte o poder passa de pai para filho.
