With the Winter Olympics just around the corner, NBC's own Lester Holt visited the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to find out what's really going on in the country. To his delight, he discovered that not only are things over there going quite well... they might even be better than over here in the USA. Not only are their politicians in lock-step with one another, but there is a vibrant winter sports community among the people that focuses on things like figure skating, ice hockey, and skiing.

As the Olympic skiing team is not using the ski resort today, it is instead open to the public. You can see a video of the North Korean ski resort which will be used for practice runs here:

Thanks go out to NBC and their culture of unbiased information. Perhaps I should pivot my beliefs about the way things should be in this country after watching these reports. Maybe we're the problem, not North Korea. Maybe they're the ones doing it right...

I can't embed Wiki links in here properly, but I think this might be the applicable term: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potemkin_village
