Caligula in Pyongyang


Kim Jong-un attained supreme power in North Korea at age 28, and Caligula parallels are not hard to find.
He definitely has the titles: “Supreme Leader,” “Great Successor,” “Sun of the 21st Century,” and a raft of others.... Consider North Korea’s gulag, for example, some components of which are frank extermination camps: “An estimated 30,000 inmates have simply vanished from the notorious Camp 22.” This is not the flyblown squalid horror of Africa, which one can regard with calm detachment, Africans being too backward and dysfunctional to present any real threat to the civilized world. This is high-IQ craziness, calculating and devious—Caligula with nukes and missiles. Are you scared? You should be. - Taki's Magazine
