It is how they are controlled.
It is a religion.
Religion is great for controlling populations.
@ Heathen ... Did you ever see the documentary about the Doctors that went to NK to carry out restorative eye surgery?
The people on regaining their sight prostrated themselves in front of a giant picture of Kim Jong Il and weeping, wailed their thanks to their illustrious leader for making them see again.
For them it was an act of god rather than a charitable act performed by perfectly normal, but highly skilled and benevolent, human beings.
It`s a mind-control cult just like any other religion, but better refered to as `a cult of personality` to distinguish it from the more mystically based cults.
Lenin was the same and he was trained for the priesthood, they still have no idea in Russia what to do with his body, so many people still come to worship it.

reason is via the fact in North Korea hes a dictator and the son of Kim Jong. And jointly as back while Kim Jong replace into nevertheless dictating, everybody worshipped him by using fact he did strict issues to all of the electorate. (Made them pray to him, no longer letting every person out of North Korea if there a citizen) yet people who do no longer worship him in North Korea, gets punished, dying or thrown right into a penitentiary. So in right here us of a, we are all from and autonomous so we see this as against the regulation by using fact we've freedom the place as North Korean citizen get no longer plenty in any respect. and as quickly as we hate somebody, we make an surprising style of rumors and newspaper could make exposure approximately human beings.

Enough fear and brainwasing (plus living in a figurative box their whole lives) will make anyone think anything.
A lot of NK's don't even believe he pees, or is even capable of doing anything wrong. They think the rest of the world are truly the evil and corrupt ones.
It's really sad.

I've never heard that.
However, ancestor worship is common, historically, in that part of the world. The idea of humans becoming gods is quite common to that culture (in fact, to many of the cultures in that wider region).

If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes the truth to simple minded people. Kinda like Islam and Christianity

To save their hides from prosecution. Be grateful you live in a civilized country were you can practice any religion, or non at all.

Because they are told that if they don't believe that, they will be shot.
People don't really believe it. They are forced to follow their "Beloved Leader" because he has the army to back him.
