Kim Il-sung

« All quotes from this author
 

To a certain extent, all dictatorships are alike. From Stalin's Soviet Union to Mao's China, from Ceaušescu's Romania to Saddam Hussein's Iraq, all these regimes had the same trappings ... But Kim Il-sung took the cult of personality to a new level. What distinguished him in the rogues' gallery of twentieth-century dictators was his ability to harness the power of faith. Kim Il-sung understood the power of religion.
