As we continue reading the text, I just feel more and more amazed by the religion of "Kim-ism" in North Korea.

I was looking at a photo gallery entitled "Inside North Korea" and its just incredible how the Kims have established a prescence in every part of North Korean citizens' lives. They don't even spare the field of botany!
Here depicted is an exhibit of FLOWERS whose species name ARE THE NAMES of the two revered leaders... These flowers, Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia are on display for the leaders' birthdays.

I agree. I find it almost unbelieveable how much the Kims are treated like higher beings. I know that there are other examples of these type of leaders in history, but I just feel like the Kims have a more concentrated effect. I can't imagine having to grow up in this kind of atmosphere in which you are taught about these god-like figures since nursey school.
