Creepy Korean Video

Who worships a “leader” like this in Korea? Or anywhere?

The video below is disturbing.

Unless a so-called “leader” has shown you things you could have never DREAMED of imagining yourself, or “enlightened” you to a degree of high-altitude – this stuff should NEVER happen for an ordinary human being.

However, seeing that Korea’s “Boss” Kim Jong-il croaked recently – an entire country is distraught.

Unless, of course, you believe this video to be government sponsored propaganda – which is a fairly logical response.

Enjoy or hate – your choice.

From Psychology Today:

“…people who have high self-esteem are often humble, whereas narcissists rarely are. It was once thought that narcissists have high self-esteem on the surface, but deep down they are insecure. However, the latest evidence indicates that narcissists are actually secure or grandiose at both levels. Onlookers may infer that insecurity is there because narcissists tend to be defensive when their self-esteem is threatened (e.g., being ridiculed); narcissists can be aggressive.”

The late Kim Jong il and the poster seem to demand worship, not for self exalted (cyber) deification, but instead validation. Kim Jong il perhaps did so for shattered vertical dreams (he was a big fan of basketball and wanted to be Michael Jordan). The funny thing here is that I could see Kim Jong il being a poster here. Just replace his physical stature with their emotional booster seat, and voila – importance by fiat.

Unfortunately, their work is in vane. I doubt there will be many posters here who’ll upload a video of them mourning the absence of future posts by same.

Wow, thanks for your insight. You must be holding Ph.D in psychology otherwise you deserve one. Here is my perspective from cross-cultural study. Did you watch the ceremony for Prince Williams wedding and his coach pulled by plume-decorated horses not stretch limousine? England is keeping that symbolic tradition while Japan has their own emperor family line although they are not in gossip magazine as much but in seclusion and mystery. Once upon a time, kings and queens had the aura of absolute power under Devine appointment before separation of church and state in the West, while Asian rulers derived their unchallenged authority from Confucianism which defines ideal relation of rulers and subjects as authoritative parents and immature children whose obedient virtue is filial. This virtue extends to the other relations like teachers and students ( have you notice how obedient and listening Asian students are to their teachers usually, while American students including Asian Americans are encouraged to question and debate with teachers? ), the older and the younger, men and women. In younger generation now in Asia, it changed greatly with American influence like universally appealing individualism seen in pop stars like Micael Jordan or Bon Jovi but long tradition is lingering somewhere in their attitude. People in North Korea is in still that authentic old tradition calling Kim JongIL “Our Father great leader”. So they have to mourn as if their own national father has passed away. Maybe there could be some parallel in England when their King… Read more »

Did. I. Stutter. Yes, ‘stalker’:

1. a person who pursues game, prey, or a person stealthily.

2. a person who harasses another person, as a former lover, a famous person, etc., in an aggressive, often threatening and illegal manner.

As long as you never approach me in public, westcoastbound, we’re cool. You go your way, and I will go mine.

And happy holidays back at ya, bigman!

And, I’ll say one more thing. No one is stalking you. In fact, your pathetic quoting of the dictionary makes it that much more clear. The difference between you and me as that I might check in to this website in a month or two–whereas you’ll be here every couple days telling people to “fuck off.” The difference between you and me is that I have no desire to say obnoxious, mean things on a daily basis. You do–and after watching for years it is clear you still do. It seems to make you feel better about yourself to be an obnoxious, bitchy, brat. I would have thought you’d have grown out of it by now–but it seems you are doubling down. So Happy Holidays! Your family must be so proud![quote comment=”213068″]Did. I. Stutter.

No, Mooshu, you didn’t stutter. However, as usual, you sound intensely intellectually challenged. No one is stalking you. Not me nor anyone else. No one cares that much. You continue to act the way you do on this website and tell everyone else that they have the problem. Keep it up, girl. Nothing confirms everything that grown-ups say more than your juvenile behavior. Merry Christmas![quote comment=”213068″]Did. I. Stutter.

westcoastbound, could have fooled me, but I’m not an idiot. When you constantly follow me on here, even if your comments are passive-aggressive or “indirect”, and then show up to annoy me OUTSIDE of 411 and think it’s hilarioius because you’re at least four beers short of a six-pack, it’s stalking… I don’t know what you learned in law school, but online stalkers exist and you’re one of them. At best you’re OCD. At worst, you need therapy.

Regardless, you’ve been warned on this public forum. I have an eye out for you. As long as you don’t approach me (or anyone I am with) on the street, we’re cool. Whatever power-trip you’re on, I’m not intimidated by you. I’m not the gal to stalk, trust me on that.

And “happy holidays” to you, too.

Considering you’re the one with “animal lover” moniker, I’m guessing we’d have better luck searching yours. It’s a shame your head’s in our way.

“God, Americans are so myopic.”

People who make gross generalizations are also myopic. There are many Americans who’ve forgotten more than you could ever hope to learn about international relations, etc. so unless you’ve had the opportunity to sit down and discuss, at length, the world with each and every individual American, please do not ascribe behaviors to the entire population.

” And your connection between Kim Jong Il and the Duggars is, what exactly?”

If you followed the thread, there’s actually a fairly acceptable leap from the Dear Leader to the Duggars. Observe:

1. Someone observes the mourning is excessive.
2. Someone suggests that it may be no more excessive than the reaction of a celebrity death.
3. Someone agrees and submits that a recent reaction to a death was (by some standards), outlandish.

Not too complicated to follow.
