If you’ve ever wondered what the reductio ad absurdum of socialism is, I think North Korea must be the answer. Certainly the many pictures that Russia’s top web designer took during a recent trip there make it seem like the closest thing the real world has to Orwell’s imagined 1984. This picture and its caption, from a country that is nominally in the 21st Century (and sophisticated enough to launch rockets), really struck me:
“They still havent figured out how to make flat glass withtout bubbles, the only exception are the windows in the hotel or large vitrines.”
