Will the last surviving communist state be able to bring one ONE (1, singular) gold medal at this year’s olyimpics? Or is the malnutrition too much to overcome?

Don't know, don't care, in Gulag there will be no sports, other than whatever you can play with a half inflated water balloon.

olympics are just the start of NKs attempt to reintegrate into the capitalist world

Mods pls

This. Read chapter 3 of society of the spectacle for more. It's the same shit.

Is this a net positive or net negative?

they have a very strong weightlifting team


nk dropped socialism a long fuckin time ago



I don't think thats the issue at all.

[citation needed]



How so?
NK has never disavowed or outright Rejected Socialism
Juche should be viewed as a different type of Socialism

You dun goofed boi

are you suggesting socialism in North Korea isn't going well?


The North Korean famine ended two decades ago, yet people still think that the people are starving


well if the tour guide says so it must be true

Because they were heavily drugged. "The most systematic case of drug use for athletic achievement is that of the East German Olympic teams of the 1970s and 1980s. In 1990, documents were discovered that showed many East German female athletes, especially swimmers, had been administered anabolic steroids and other drugs by their coaches and trainers. Girls as young as eleven were started on the drug regimen without consent from their parents. American female swimmers, including Shirley Babashoff, accused the East Germans of using performance-enhancing drugs as early as the 1976 Summer Games. Babashoff's comments were dismissed by the international and domestic media as sour grapes since Babashoff, a clear favorite to win multiple gold medals, won three silver medals - losing all three times to either of the two East Germans Kornelia Ender or Petra Thümer, and one gold medal in a relay. There was no suspicion of cheating on the part of the East German female swimmers even though their medal tally increased from four silvers and one bronze in 1972 to ten golds (out of a possible 12), six silvers, and one bronze in 1976. No clear evidence was discovered until after the fall of the Berlin Wall, when the aforementioned documents proved that East Germany had embarked on a state-sponsored drug regimen to dramatically improve their competitiveness at the Olympic Games and other international sporting events"

Why do you faggots never post in the DPRK thread, it's like you have to make your own shitty thread to post your meme with a fucking tourguide

DPRK recently won the Asian championship in women's soccer, winter sports however isn't very popular there so I don't think they will.

They're pretty careful who they choose to be tour guides.

How do you know this, you've witnessed his job interview? You know exactly what he's allowed to say and what not? Do you know if he's from the state or from a private tour company? What did he mean by communism? There is an awful lot of information missing here for it to be considered a source of the offical North Korean line, in their constitution it says that they are a socialist state and in the most recent writing about Juche it says it's an application of Marxism-Leninism and considers itself part of the communist movement.

you go to the gulag too

socialism wins again

Because they're brainlet cowards.

I come to leftypol to read top 10 anime battles in sectarianism yet hardline anti-tankies never produce the autism I crave, reducing themselves to spam-shitposting and impotent whimpering
