Why do communist countries keep the preserved corpse of their leader?
Why do they do this? is there a reason?
I don't see the US keeping a freeze-dried corpse of George Washington on display, or any other democratic nation. So why is it just communists that do this?
And I hear China's corpse has been looking very waxy these days... you think Mao rotted away beyond repair, and just replaced him with a wax sculpture?

In North Korea, the President of the country is a dead guy (kim Jong Il's father)
Kim Jong Il has a different title as the current leader.
Basically, so far as I can tell....Communists are "touched in the head"

Influence and power of his ideology over the people, when you're still honoring him in a grand room with him as the main feature.
