For years, South Korea was sending propaganda papers to North Korea by using balloons.

North Korea warned them not to do it, yet South Korea continued to do it for years.

So North Korea responded accordingly, by sending balloons filled with trash to South Korea.

Trash for trash, they say.

North Korea will always be the popular Korea, and probably the only Korea by 2050 since South has low birth rates but South has very high suicide rates. People are killing themselves to escape South Korea.

"Suicide is the number one cause of death among South Koreans aged 10 to 39.[11][12]"

South has very high suicide rates
In North Korea, suicide is punishable by death.

There are plenty of deaths in South Korea.

The current population of South Korea in 2024 is 51,741,963, a 0.08% decline from 2023. The population of South Korea in 2023 was 51,784,059, a 0.06% decline from 2022. The population of South Korea in 2022 was 51,815,810, a 0.03% decline from 2021.

Every year, the population declines more.

So not only does South Korea have highest suicide rate in the world, indicating how great their lives are, but people refuse to have children because they cant afford them.

Poor South Korea.

Well, at least the other Korea is successful in birth rates.

Yeah, you would think that if life in South Korea was so good, people would kill themselves less there, but no. Maybe they cant handle how good their life is, so they kill themselves.

"North Korea has dropped at least 260 balloons carrying rubbish in the South, prompting authorities to warn its residents to stay indoors.
South Korea's military also cautioned the public against touching the white balloons and the plastic bags attached to them because they contain "filthy waste and trash"."

"The recent incident comes days after North Korea said it would retaliate against the "frequent scattering of leaflets and other rubbish" in border areas by activists in the South.
"Mounds of wastepaper and filth will soon be scattered over the border areas and the interior of the ROK and it will directly experience how much effort is required to remove them," North Korea's vice-minister of defence Kim Kang Il said in a statement to state media on Sunday."

Yes, the balloons reportedly carried toilet paper, cigarette butts and rubbish.

Dictatorship is the necessity of hierarchy.

It's just that some dictatorships are more oppressive than others.

So step outside legal parameters and you will be held to account, wherever you are. 

Though we tend to refer to more liberal regimes, not as dictatorships.
