Reality and propaganda 
11th-Jul-2006 06:59 pm
Here is a comparison between a propaganda painting of Kim Jong Il and a real photography. I wonder when they will start to paint Samuel Lee. (BTW, I heard Peter the Great was really tall, but he had a very small head. Painters who painted his head too small (i.e. in real proportion) were decpaitated. I guess something similar will happen to Korean painters of Kim Jong Il if they paint the body too small).

From a list of titles allegedly used by “prominent leaders from 160 nations across the world” to refer to Kim Jong-Il, as announced by North Korean state television. The titles were translated from the Korean by Lee Jong-Heon Originally from Harper's Magazine, February 2005:
  • Supreme Commander at the Forefront of the Struggle Against Imperialism and the United States
  • Greatest Saint Who Rules with Extensive Magnanimity
  • Lode Star of the Twenty-First Century
  • Best Leader Who Realized Human Wisdom
  • Leader with Extraordinary Personality
  • Perfect Picture of Wisdom and Boldness
  • Eternal Bosom of Hot Love
  • Master of Literature, Arts, and Architecture
  • World’s Best Ideal Leader with Versatile Talents
  • Humankind’s Greatest Musical Genius

Just some proposals for the UBFers who have to write the eulogies for their "founder's day".

Here are some more details about Kim Jong Il. Quote:

"He's crazy like a fox, but he does have a very dangerous personality, what I call a malignant narcissism, which means such self-absorption that you can't really empathise with the pain and suffering of others, including the pain and suffering of his own people."

Hm, reminds me of somebody else...

According to a UBF report from last year, UBF enlisted a recruit who happens to be an artist to do a bit of propaganda drawing in praise of "Mother" Barry:

"Danny spoke of Mother Barry who left the U.S. as a missionary to Korea in 1955 and together with Dr. Samuel Lee began a Bible study movement that has sent hundreds of missionaries to the U.S. In a diagram creatively drawn by Christian Norcross, Mother Barry was 1 'candle' leaving the U.S. for Korea, following which countless 'candles' retuned to the U.S."

And who can forget the badly-faked addition of a second level balcony to the MSU auditorium in the UBF newsletter (See question 2 here). And in another newsletter, there was the drawn-in "wig" on the portrait of a bald UBF missionary.
