Does scanning count as taking a picture?
If so this can fit here.
This is a North Korean propaganda pamphlet that was dropped on us in 1989 or 1990. Kim Il Sung was still alive at that time, and was trying to position Kim Jung Il as his successor.
I was in Suwon when this happened. They caught the wind right, and few weather baloons down where these would be dropped on us one night. The next morning, when they were scattered around, I was appointed to lead a group to police up the pamphlets and turn them in to be burned. It was illegal in Korea to be in possession of these, or so we were told - I never had that confirmed to me by anyone who I trusted to be in the know. Whether it was illegal or not, we were sent to gather these up and have them burned. Somehow, a couple of them got sent to my parents to keep as a souvenir, at least until I got to go there and collect one. They faded pretty quickly, but when I did get back, I laminated it so it would keep better as a souvenir. I still have it
The man in the glasses on the pictures on the back is Kim Il Sung.
The tower in the picture is the Juche Tower in Pyeongyong. The front of the pamphet uses great, swelling and glowing words to talk about the philosophy that was founded by their great hero Kim Il Sung, and perfected by their Dear Leader Kim Jung Il, and how the Juche tower was built to forever symbolize this. It then launches into descriptions of the dimensions of the tower and the flame at the top. The laguage used is really over the top. Some of the back I have a little trouble reading because of the fading.
Whatever the intent of their advertising, I don't think any of us were really convinced of any great accomplishment or progress in North Korea, and I don't think it stirred any desire in any of us to join thier side or their cause
