The Far Cry series has a long history of charismatic and not so good leaders in their games. They are games with a deep dive into how bad leaders come into power... and how they stay there. Now, the games generally focus on bringing down these bad leaders - and they do a great job. I've learned a LOT and it follows many of the lessons we've learned throughout our own history on the subject. If we know how a bad leader stays in power, we can figure out how to take that power away. Get ready for a power lesson in Game Theory!

    • @Simp Hunter only reason it’s hard for north koreans to get into the south is because of the u.s and their relations. dprk citizens travel to china or russia every year. only reason south korea has those defectors is because people trick them to be smuggled in, and then get forced to defect. watch Loyal Citizens of Pyongyang in seoul

  • Protest only works if the regime has a limit to how low they will sink. It’s why it almost never works on businesses and it was useless in China. Nothing but armed resistance and civil war works in situations like that and even then that’s assuming the opposition wins. If they lose then nearly everyone willing to do anything to fight the regime is dead and those that would have peacefully protested are painted as enemies of the state and potential terrorists
