Another Yankee Boogeyman Myth Exposed: Documentary on North Korea

This 25 minute documentary challenges the Yankee stereotypes of the people of all  countries claiming to be socialist. The stereotypes are that they are passionless, beaten down or dour and long-suffering. However, the roads and transportation systems are modern and most human services are free. The video tells a story of how much North Koreans have suffered at the hands of imperialist wars for most of the 20th century. It does not paint a picture of North Korea as a socialist utopia, but rather as a country that is doing surprisingly well compared to the fate of the lower classes in Yankeedom.
