    The Shadow Knows...
    Here is another resource for countering anti-gunners. It is amazing that this regime is still in power... North Koreans need some guns. Wouldn't you stand up under this absurdity if you and your neighbors were armed?

    "Imagine going to work every day and not getting paid. Then, one day, you're told there's no work to do — so you must pay the company for the privilege of not working.

    This is the daily reality facing Mrs. Kim, a petite 52-year-old North Korean. Her husband's job in a state-run steel factory requires him to build roads. She can't remember the last time he received a monthly salary. When there are no roads to build, he has to pay his company around 20 times his paltry monthly salary, she says.

    "He had to pay not to work for about six months of last year," Mrs. Kim told NPR, sighing. "You have to pay, even if you can't afford to eat. It's mandatory."

    So she is the one who must keep the family alive, as her husband wrestles with this state-sanctioned extortion.

    Welcome to the Orwellian world of work in North Korea. In this reclusive country, profound social change is happening beyond the view of the outside world. The demands of politics have dramatically redrawn gender roles, forcing women to become the breadwinners."
