Celestial North Korea

It will be very interesting to see what happens to North Korea now that Kim Jong Il has died. Curious how Hitchens dies, the Iraq war ends and then Il dies. I can just imagine Hitchens getting to the pearly gates, confronting god, picking him apart for all his absurdities and "evidence" that no honest person could really take seriously that he existed, telling him how the Iraq war was worth it and saying how North Korea reminded him so much of heaven, and Kim Jon Il reminded him of Jesus. I bet god sent for Il right away to have a "meeting", haha. Ah, it's fun to dream of silliness...

But in all seriousness, Kim Jong Il's father was and still is treated like a deity even after his death, with Il being treated more like a demi-god. Those poor people have no idea what the world is actually like, it is scary. The constant praising of the "dear leader", the control of the masses by the state. Scary stuff. Hitchens imagined this is what heaven would be like, and it's not a stretch to follow him there.
