an odd human trait...

    just been watching a vid of N Korea's 'Supreme Leader' Kim Jong-Un an ugly fat pig who has executed members of his family or the military who are too close to him or who he perceives as a rival. Now the N Koreans, believe it or not, are not all completely stupid. Wouldn't you think that a smart gang of them would simply bump off the fat idiot who they all know could come calling on them next - before he actually does so - instead of lamely clapping everything he does? It reminds me of Stalin and the hold he had over the entire political and military machine the members of which knew he was a nutter, conducting sham trials of decorated war heroes forcing them to confess to the most absurd crimes against the State - and they all just stood around waiting their turn for the axe to fall. He murdered something like 60% of the top military echelon on totally false grounds and was still not challenged.
    What does it take for a leadership to be challenged when they are out of control? and why do so many simply accept their murderous behaviour? an odd trait indeed....
