BBC North Korea Documentary Shows What Life Is Like In World's Worst Police State (VIDEO)

The BBC has a searing documentary, released in 2009, on what life is like inside North Korea, the world's worst police state. The living experience and conditions are just about as bad as anything you can imagine.

One example straight out of "1984": in Pyongyang, the capital, every apartment's kitchen has a speaker that broadcasts government propaganda day and night. You can turn the volume up or down, but you cannot turn it off.

This is to say nothing of the staggering economic misery occurring.
