We should include the North Korean people in our daily dedications for world peace, for this purpose I read about north korean Juche ideology, I'd like to share this interesting topic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juche
For the happiness and peace of all peoples on Earth!

We should also include ourselves - the rest of the world - because we will suffer a lot too if a world war begins.

I don't mean to be cynical, but the Juche idea resembles buddhism, it stresses the subject or man, the allpowerful human being, everything comes from the subject, from the human being, -says the founder of Juche, Kim Jong Il. http://www1.korea-np.co.jp/pk/062nd_issue/98092410.htm
There is no incarnation in it, but the founder of Juche, Kim Jong Il, is considered a Perfect Human.

There are hundreds of peoples on Earth, not just one's own people, once again: peace and happiness for all the peoples!

Sure it does, especially under the influence of some serious psychedelics!!! :shrug: Juche is a materialist/nihilist social and political doctrine based on Marxist-Leninist ideology. It was devised by Kim Il Sung in order to justify his brutal dictatorial regime and turn himself into a secular god. It was used by Kim Il Sung, as an effective propaganda device, to remain in power even though he was basically responsible (due to his intransigence around the issues of self-sufficiency and zero reliance on foreign powers) for the deaths by starvation (and associated illnesses) of somewhere between 1-2.4 million North korean citizens during the mid 1990's.

Identical to Buddhism, I would say!

Not that the North Koreans do not deserve our sympathy and prayers, of course they do, but there is no need to look for similiarities where none really exist. Compassion is for eveybody/thing regardless of similarities and differences.

You are overlooking the historical development on this planet, what actually happened in 1800's and 1900's. People didn't start out with the intention of doing harm, on the contrary they had the best of intentions. Don't forget the actual history. It is illuminating to read about the kind of ideas and creative intentions that Kim Jong Il had, as an example of this.

Astus, I believe you're based in Budapest, whats going on? I just read an article in the paper where it claimed Hungary is no longer a democracy. Prime minister Viktor Orban, apparently backed by the EU has developed extreme right wing views and proudly claims his proximity to the Jobbik and its paramilitary militia, responsible for several racist murders of Romani people (gypsies) and heiress of the pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party.
You may wish to comment.

There are 193 members in the UN. The lists of indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities on the four continents (five, six or seven continents, depending on the model) run in hundreds.
May there be peace and the cause of peace for all the peoples, nations and sovereign states.
May they be free of disturbances.
May they be free of dissatisfaction and its causes.
May they rejoice in the prosperity and success of other peoples, nations and sovereign states.
May they abide in great equanimity, without division into friends and enemies.
