John Feffer argues that "the worlds of Walt Disney and Kim Il Sung are actually not that far apart," — The Disneyfication of North Korea. An excerpt:

The founder, Walt Disney, created a saccharine, air-brushed utopia that has been a dystopic reality for so many who have worked in the many enterprises of the Disney universe. The affinity between Disneyworld and the world of North Korea goes beyond any taste for Western-style entertainment that Kim Jong Un might have picked up during his Swiss education
