The Evolution of Power to Yet Another Generation of Kims-And the Conditions Giving Rise To It
"The December 28, 2011 photographs of tens of thousands of North Koreans lining the streets of Pyongyang, uncontrollably mourning the passing of their leader, Kim Jong Il, as his hearse drove by, underscore the Kim family's success in its uninterrupted 63-year rule of the country. It stems from their mastery in molding the psyche of the masses they have led. The process began with the rise to power of Kim Jong Il's father and the nation's founder, Kim Il Sung, who, before his death in 1994 at age 82, had taught his son well. The family's future success in continuing its rule now turns on Kim Jong Il's youngest, most favored son and "Crown Prince," Kim Jong Un, mastering the same process. Should he fail to, turbulent times could be in store for the peninsula."
