Watching the mass displays of grief upon Kim Jong Il’s death, it’s hard to even imagine what it would be like, living in a totalitarian personality cult, then having the focus of all your fear and worship die. You probably would grieve and be afraid for the future – especially if you knew your very life depended on how sincerely you grieved. This story probably has it about right.
After seeing that I couldn’t help but think of the Legendary Pink Dots song, Death of a King, which I think was inspired by the death of Kim Jong Il’s father, Kim Il Sung. (Obviously whoever made this video had a different vision.)
