North Korea has philosophical contorol over their country and their government is run by one dictator; Kim Jong Un. Similar to the Handicapper General, Kim Jong un runs his country by limiting independant thoughts and freedoms, and is worshipped by society. Both leaders strive to make their country a better place by limiting how they live and making sure they follow the rules set by the government. If they fail to follow these rules they are regarded as “extremely dangerous” (3) like Harrison Bergeron as soon as he escaped prison. Both HB and North Korea seem to worship or look up to their leader and as seen in the video, N. Koreans set up “shrines that light up during the night” of their leader. Both countries strive to take control of their country and keep it under control while using elements of a dystopian society.
