It does not come as a surprise that Kim Jong-un’s government uses propaganda in order to pass his political messages. Yesterday (Thursday 12th of February 2015), 310 new North Korean propaganda slogans were unveiled. Those new slogans cover almost any subject: from the history of the Kim dynasty or the importance of submarines to the roles of the women in agriculture or the enemies of the nation.[See related articles about North Korea: Kim Jong-un stuck in submarine – North Korea won again – North Korea tourist destination]
The slogans played a bit with any feeling you could ever experience: they were encouraging, threatening, comforting, funny, aggressive, poetic…
Peanuts Daily made a list of the best slogans:
Play sport games in an offensive way!
Should the enemy dare to invade our country, annihilate them to the last man!
One day we will make Americans follow us on a leash!
Let the wives of officers become dependable assistants to their husbands!
Let us turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland by the joint operation of the army and people!
Whatever you need, the Kim family has it for you!
Let the people from the South pass the border and then treat them as animals!
Travel is possible but submarines will be your only vessel!
A good neighbor always keeps an eye on things and is ready to take initiatives!
Thank the glorious Kim dynasty for taking care of you!
Cut your hair like if it was your last haircut!
You probably noticed that every slogan ends with an exclamation point. They were written this way because they all are equally important.
