The illusion of unity : despite appearances, North Koreans are not all of one mind, united around their leader -- The life of the leader : given the opportunity, dictators dictate -- The economic system : command socialism does not work -- The economy of everyday life : most people find a way to make a living -- The information environment : propaganda is everywhere, but other news is creeping in -- Hidden thoughts : reality and ideology are in conflict -- The law, political class, and human rights : the law is made to protect the leader, and only he enjoys full human rights -- Defectors : sometimes running away is the best option -- The end comes slowly : for all its problems, the Kim regime appears to be stable
