It is known that the North Korean authorities, which are trying to control the ideology of the people and promote internal solidarity, have recently strengthened the crackdown on the residents. It is interpreted as an intention to suppress the voices of residents’ dissatisfaction with the authorities and the supreme leader and to form a positive public opinion.
According to an insider inside Daily NK in South Pyongan Province on the 15th, the Party and the National Security Agency issued a directive to carry out a sharp struggle against the general population, emphasizing the eradication of the anti-socialist phenomenon earlier this month.
This struggle, in which the Labor Party and the National Security Agency are jointly put in, is expected to focus on finding and punishing those who spread rumors and critics of the state.
The Pochi statement proclaiming the new struggle contained the content that “just as a hammer springs up a nail when it is light, if the fighting power is weak, people become degenerate and become anti-party and counter-revolutionary. reported to be
In other words, it is an order to the security authorities to strongly control the residents so that they do not put their personal opinions ahead of the party’s policies or divulge opinions that are different from the policies of the authorities.
According to the source, the source also emphasized the authority of Chairman Kim Jong-un and said, “The phenomenon of treating (neglecting) the Party’s policies, the phenomenon of negligence in implementing the Party’s policies and decisions, and all kinds of anti-socialist and non-socialist phenomena. There was also an instruction to set the main target of the struggle and to set up a problem even for small elements and fight strong.”
North Koreans routinely receive political liberal arts education through Inminban, etc., but it is believed that the reason the authorities declared a new struggle in addition to the existing education is because the people’s dissatisfaction with the state and the supreme leader has become more explicit than in the past.
In fact, the source said, “Recently, there have been criticisms among the residents that ‘a young leader made all the people die’, ‘I am not recognized even in China and Russia because of my lack of political career, I am embarrassed to try to join the US, and I am only hurting the people with my anger’. turned,” he said.
For this reason, the source explained that the Labor Party’s organizational and leadership department gave the Security Council a “severe order to stigmatize it as an anti-party act that confuses the public by turning words that don’t match the facts, and to search it out until the end and take systematic and legal punishment.”
Meanwhile, in July, the North Korean authorities issued an order emphasizing the enforcement of the crackdown on residents.
At that time, North Korea sold grains such as rice and corn to the residents at a lower price than the market price, but when the public opinion was not good, ‘Let’s appreciate the measures of the party and the state in relation to the sale of grain (grain) and show high the collectivist spirit of helping and leading each other’ ‘ distributed the titled material.

It is understood that measures to control public sentiment are frequently being implemented as the economic situation of residents worsens and dissatisfaction with the authorities grows after the border closure due to the corona virus.
