  1. The main problem of a totalitarian regime is to protect the ruling elite from criticism. Which leads, sorry for the expression, to a “fucking mania”. The ruler begins to consider himself infallible and omniscient, does not admit mistakes, does not discuss new decisions, but imposes them.�

    Hence the inevitable facaps such as the fight against “corrupt girls” in genetics and cybernetics, the granting of preferences to crooks like Lepeshinskaya and Lysenko, etc., etc. And, as indicated above, one country is not able to provide itself with all-all-all. The Soviet autarky tried, but everyone knew perfectly well what was better, imported jeans or the products of the plant named after them. For example, a Sony tape recorder in a thrift store or a Quasar-303 product.

  2. And I would not judge so unequivocally, “and let me be confused.” The DPRK as a system preserved itself in the second half of the last century, ” and in all senses, including in the economic one. “And if you create a totalitarian state here and now, you can rely on advanced technologies that are used by the whole world. “In particular,” it is possible to build a much more adequate command and administrative economy, ” using the Internet and all sorts of team interactions. �Therefore, if the country will have plenty of professionals �able to build such a system, �weak-willed people, �and very smart and fresh nomenclature and there are plenty of resources (and all of these factors it is impossible to imagine together in one country, �but it is theoretically possible), �you can build yourself quite such a good evil Empire, which will be able to funcionality better �than the Soviet Union at its peak.�

    But here the main problem is that in a country with a developed Internet and an abundance of professionals in economics, social sciences, and so on, ” most likely, a civil society has long been formed that would not allow totalitarianism.

  3. In general, your question can be rephrased as follows: “Is there any chance for a decent development in the DPRK?”�

    There is socialism

    There is a totalitarian state

    Iron Curtain – yes

    Therefore, the answer to your question is located on the Korean Peninsula above the 38th parallel.

  4. I think there are no such chances and never will be! A single country cannot support itself on its own. In any case, trade with other countries is necessary, at least for the purchase and sale of resources (technical, natural, energy, etc.). In addition, it is desirable to have the opportunity to exchange specialists in order to keep up with economic, technical and scientific development (maybe even cultural).

    To better understand the pros and cons of living in an isolated totalitarian state (even if not a socialist one), read about India, China, Japan, as well as the Mayans and Aztecs.
