I'm sure many of their elderly would love to, as half of them live in poverty and are sometimes even forced into prostitution to survive. In the DPRK they would be taken care of. But that is the problem with capitalism, the individualistic selfish attitude that the system projects on its people. It's why you applaud capitalism because you live well under it, without caring about the two billion people who live in abject poverty under that same system.Feel free to ask them (if you ever a met a South Korean that is) how would they feel about moving up North and enjoying all the booms.
Like I said, everything is easy when you are backed by the biggest super power. The DPRK was better off than the South for decades when there still was a Communist power block.I guess that's why North isn't in the top 100 by life expectancy and not even in top 120 by life expectancy at birth. South is top 10. In your own country's prisons you have free healthcare, education and housing, you lack the Internet (or maybe not?) and you can't travel much; sounds about right. :shrug:
