Christopher Hitchens on North Korea


Play Christopher Hitchens: How Religion Is Like North Korea

When I commented on the alleged death of Kim Jong Il, I lamented that Christopher Hitchens wouldn't be around to comment on it. Fortunately, we have video of him discussing North Korea at Politics and Prose in 2007, with his trademark wit and humility.

I can't begin to imagine what being a North Korean would be like. To have been born on the wrong side of the wall, even worse than my German relatives almost were. It depresses me no end.
