If it's so clear, then it should be easy for you to demonstrate.

Bear in mind, however, that people have been 'demonstrating' that every
socialist country is really a capitalist country since 1926 or so - on
which, see Juriaan's post earlier today.  Good luck in coming up with a
method that hasn't been used already.

You are mistaken if you think that we don't have anyone in our party who
knows any more about the DPRK than that their governing party is called the
'Workers' Party'.
