Senior N.Korean Officials 'Encouraged to Read Hitler'

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un handed out copies of Adolf Hitler's memoir "Mein Kampf" to department chiefs of the Workers Party's Central Committee on his birthday on Jan. 8, an anti-regime website said Tuesday.

The book is among a special selection of the world's 100 best classic books according to the tastes of the Kim family, New Focus quoted an informed source as saying. New Focus is run by Jang Jin-song, a North Korean poet who used to work at the Workers Party's United Front Department before defecting to the South.

Hitler's book lays out a deranged program of anti-Semitism and all-engulfing propaganda that became the basis for the short-lived Third Reich.

"Kim Jong-un stressed to top officials the need to pursue a policy of both nuclear and economic development in tandem," the source said. "He instructed them to study the Third Reich and how Hitler reconstructed Germany after its defeat in World War I, and find ways to apply it to the North."

The Washington Post also quoted New Focus as reporting that Kim is doling out imported sporting goods, music CDs or books to senior officials, whereas his father Kim Jong-il used to buy their loyalty with luxury goods like cognac or Italian suiting

Isn’t this the same advise that Jay Carney or Harry Reid would give anyone?

And the other 99 require crayons.

Hitler is required reading for Obama’s staff and Democrat leaders.

I think I would have preferred taking my chances as a Jewish gypsy in NAZI Germany than as an average Nork.

In Guido Giacomo Preparata, Conjuring Hitler, 2005, the author presents the case that the director of the Bank of England from 1922-1944, Montagu Norman, led a manipulation of the German economy to foster the rise of a nationalist element with such an archetypal leader in order to destablilize the world island and preserve the primacy of the Sea Powers.

China is engaged in adverse possession likely to prevail against the current U.S. weak horse.

Hitler benefited from loans and corporate dealings and of course Nork Nukes Ltd is a start.

Kim ought to be certain to have his tunnel escape updated daily. As in Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler by Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams the assistance of the U.S. Secretary of State and Director of Central Intelligence will be helpful as the years go by.

In point of fact, officers receiving copies of Mein Kampf will at the first suitable opportunity execute Maximum Face Palm.

A more politic choice would've been Dreams from My Father which would've resulted in a Reset and billions in aid.

If you haven't read it, you should, particularly the chapter on Propaganda. Hitler puts it right out there, plain as a pikestaff, in utterly clear terms.

You'd recognize the techniques. They're used by 'Rats constantly.

Hot diggety! I love decent book purchase guidance. I wonder if this is one of those Amazon Lists?

Lessee...Justine by the Marquis de Sade. Nope, got that one. The Necronomicon. I have the Golden Comics version. The Satanic Bible by Lavey Got the Disney animated version on Betamax. My Favorite Screams by Torquemada, The Joy of Impalement by Vlad Tepes, 25,000 Heads In A Pile by Genghis Khan, translated by J.F. Kerry. They're on my Wish List. Lessee, what are my options, hardcover, Kindle Edition, custom-bound in human skin? Decisions, decisions...

I’ve read Mein Kampf and half of it makes sense despite his terrible writing and sentence structure.

If people had read it in the ‘30s, things might be a lot different.

Actually, Un has an interesting theory that he's going to try ~ that whatever it is the student emperors who rule Chosen place their attention on will show up in short supply.

So, although NK is not short of fascist minded commies, they have a critically short supply of Nazis already so creating some new ones will have to be done at the expense of fascist minded commies.

This is the NK law of supply and demand
