because of their central government and collectivism, BUT I do not agree with punishing the people for the errors of government. The sanctions end up creating brutal starvation conditions both in N Korea and Iran. People who are used to being "looked after" are non-thinkers and will eat whatever is available.
It is a terrible situation when you can own no land and have no freedom to do anything. They do not even have a patch of soil to grow food on. It is all government owned.
How quickly a people can be brainwashed. S Korea is like America, and N Korea are like unthinking zombies living in fear completely dependent on being "looked after".
How quickly a nation can be brainwashed...
