Let us say North Korea is an example of leftism gone awry.
Though they were once the prosperous Korea — thanks to the largesse of the Soviet Union — the state of the country since Kim Il Sung died has been horrific, and their status in the world community atrocious. Though there is an element of hypocrisy in the international “nuclear club” going after smaller, angrier countries trying to develop nuclear weapons, I think most people can agree that nuking Seoul (or Washington, for that matter) is not an intelligible protest against global capital. Shame on the DRPK.
I hope it all ends well.
