      North Korean elites live like literal kings. Theres no incentive for them to try and overthrow the Kim’s.

      Do you even know the first thing about Koreans? They’re the most cult-prone, superstitious freaking people among East Asia.

      Even South Korea is like these, they have Moonies & millenarian Protestant cults infesting their land, and Shaman cabals ruling the government.

          The myth was pushed by the government back during the energy crisis, so people wouldn’t sleep with it on.

      Why coup if Kim isn’t actively trying to shit on them and shake things up for the worse? The high command is content with the status quo.

      Because they know they’re on the right side of history. North Korea is unironically a workers’ paradise. Everything you hear about human rights abuses and death camps and whatnot is all Western capitalist propaganda.

      No one would coup because the risk of them losing their wealth is greater, and the reward for any other officer to snitch on them is even more so.
      None will rebel unless backed by China.

        This and Lil Kim is getting more capitalist and expanding the middle class of wealthy elites.
        Deeply Problematic Reactionary Kingdom was never a workers’ state, it was always a company town for Kim Inc.

      It practically is a military regime already. It’d be like the army overthrowing itself.

      No one in the dprk believes kim is a "god" or is "ignorant of the outside world". He’s a figurehead head of state, with actual power shared between him and the rest of the supreme council. You have been brainwashed by western propaganda.

      The USSR was undone by numerous competing power factions in a vast multi-ethnic state. China is a vast country with many competing power factions that have to be appeased and some balance/compromise needed. North Korea however has no base of wealth or power outside Kim and his buddies, who have no motivation to fix what (for them) isn’t broken.

      Because the Kim family are a bunch of fat lazy degenerates that let the military nomenklatura run the country. If they overstepped the boundaries, the military absolutely would depose of the ruler and put his sis/son/niece/cousin in his place. The cult of personality prevents them from directly going against the family, but one son could be swapped for another with relative ease.

      Generals aside, everyone in Best Korea is starving so there is no energy to rebel against Kim , most escapees don’t defect for freedom but for food. On top of that the north Korean education system teaches the people that they exist purely to worship Kim, there is no world without Kim.

      An incomplete explanation, but I’ll give it a go.

      As I understand it, according to Lankov, one of the reasons for the stability of the regime is the role played by the OGD (Organization and Guidance Department) and the way they run things behind the scene. The OGD maintains files on all members, especially those of higher rank. These files can consist of former classmates who have expressed sentiments against the regime or goods you acquired through the private markets.

      These files are used to determine who gets to climb the ranks and thus increase the likelihood of maintaining stability. Case in point would be how Kim Jong Il used his position in the OGD to ensure that he would be his father’s successor (at the time, his half-sis stood in a more favorable position).

      I’m sure it’s more complicated than this, but it’s what I got.
