  • Anyone can say they are a democracy, but that requires elections. N K's "president" has been dead for 15 years and is not going to be replaced any time soon.

  • Holy lack of education.

    Where to begin. You can be a socialist country and be a democracy. The US is a capitalist republic.

    You can have socialism and democracy.

    North Korea, despite their claims of being a republic is more of a totalitarian Dictatorship. (Stalinist).

  • Ok there was no need to be rude to the questioner. I can't stand rude, judgmental people on CafeMom! You suck! AND if you don't have the guts to say something rude without being annonymous then you shouldn't be on here!

    North Korea is a dictatorship. They don't call themselves that, but that's what it is. I don't think they are socialist, either! It's just another word they throw around.

  • I wasn't calling the OP stupid and I don't think I was being rude.

    I think there is a severe lack of actual education in our country and this question is proof.

    Though, I'm not very surprised. I see so many people toss the word socialism around without knowing what it is.

    The U.S economy is a capitalist one. Then there is Socialism and communism.

    Socialism and communism get confused. In a lot of cases when people talk about socialism they are really talking about communism.

    North Korea is communist dictatorship. With communism everyone is supposed to be economically equal, but it's not the case.

    Socialism everyone would be equal and working together to help the community. You can have a democratic socialist country.

  • It is a dictatorship, but don't tell them, they still think they are allowed to vote over there.
    When the military marches with only straight legs, there is a problem.
