A recent report suggests that North Korean elites have begun to show an increasing opposition to Kim Jong Un’s rule, per Free Beacon.

Many are supposedly dissatisfied with his rule and “question the legitimacy of his succession.”


Check it out:

RAND, a US military-funded think tank, conducted interviews with a number of North Korean defectors in order to determine how the elite classes in the country view the current regime and how they see prospects for eventual unification with South Korea.

Elites have been unnerved by the number of officials that have been purged since Kim Jong Un took power…

North Korea’s founding principles contain “no provision for dynastic succession,” according to the report. Kim Jong Un is the third generation of a communist “monarchy” that has kept the Kim family running the country since its founding.

Nevertheless, according to the RAND study, as well as the observations of North Korea-watchers based in Beijing, elites in the North Korea fear their future prospects in a united Korea under the Seoul government more than they do the erratic nature of Kim’s rule.

Basically, Kim Jong Un’s not only a source of fear for the international community—he’s a source of fear for North Koreans too.

It’s wishful thinking to hope they’d revolt against his rule in the instance of a U.S. conflict, however. Sources say that’s unlikely.
