Ok, just curious if anyone has actually spent the €70 for the 'Friends of the DPRK' membership card.
€70 works out at the present moment in time to something like $67...
In case you don't know what I'm talking about:
It says 'Membership is free' but apparently you have to pay for the membership card. The thing must be made of platinum or something.
If this guy gets at least a hundred suckers per month all over the world (huge underestimate) he'll make some € 60.000 per year, what a great way to earn a living
If anyone wants to be friends with me, send me € 49 - I'm a cheaper friend than DPRK can ever be!
Isn't this the official site of DPRK though?
Also i suspect that they'd accept just about anyone with 70 Euros as a "friend of DPRK".
Exactly, even GW Bush can apply
Don't listen to that bourgeois swine. I'll be your friend for only 30 US dollars!
Soviet America is Free America!
Under communism, there is no freedom; you are not free to live in poverty, be homeless, to be without an education, to starve, or to be without a job
Komrades!!! There's no need to undercut each other! We'll just make a 'Friends of the SE' organization and charge €49. Since it was my idea, I'll split it with you all 60/40, me 60% and 40% divied up between the lot of you, that sounds fair right?
I'm confused now...I have been changing my view of North Korea from the typical capitalist propaganda to a more positive "They are not doing as bad as is claimed." stance.
I would support this if I knew that I could visit without being closely corralled and watched. And if the money would go to help fund their agricultural sector. I'm not saying that they are in a famine, just that that sector particularly needs some help to ramp up production and make that area prosperous again.
The website is the DPRK website though. Can anyone find out where the money goes?
If I recall correctly, their representative/webmaster/foreign manager/whatnot was a guy from Spain. This trace would support it.. Alejandro Cao de Benos. Wikipedia link
TBH, while I don't want NATO to bomb them or anything like that, I don't intend to fund oddball regimes on the far side of the world (even if it's true that they're less crazy than western pop. culture depicts them -which I grant you, is possible-, they're still not exactly the jolliest place in the lot).
Back in white
I can totally agree, and that is part of my apprehension on giving a donation like that. Other than concern as the where the money goes.
Don't listen to that bourgeois pig. We've just had a breakthrough in our five-year plan and now we can offer you friendship for mere $ 29,95!
Oh come on comrades! .How do you know that all those money are spent for the personal benefit of those who administrate KFA?The aim of KFA in my opinion is very positive and they have achieved several things.Those money are probaply been put in a bank and spent to journeys in DPRK and around the world to promote the KFA those money are spent to rent buildings to house the branches of KFA worldwide, to maintain employees that maintain the KFA official webpage and answer all the questions.Generally to maintain KFA needs an ammount of money (I don't know how much) and another amount of money is kept in a bank for future use.
PS I am not a member of KFA but my opinion about it is very positive.
