I will offer evidence of Social, National and most importantly Religious flaws woven within the culture of the North Koreans,
The eldest son of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il said he has no interest in who will take over the reins of the communist nation and indicated his father has not yet named a successor, a news report said Saturday
Kim Jong Il anoints next leader of North Korea - his youngest son
I had put Kim Jong Un in this paticular sentence, I meant to put Kim Jong Nam, as the links I provided would have shown, it happens.
I see no mention of the fact that on May 4th, 2001 Kim Jong Un embarrassed his father and the regime by attempting to enter Japan with fake passports.
This could have been a great topic but both debaters got off to a slow start and didn't really pick it up. Wormwood13 only asked a few Socratic questions and hyperion.martin used none at all. They are a great tool for advancing an argument. I like debates that rely on few external links. I would have liked to see more explanations of points from both although wormwood did tackle a couple.
Hyperion.martin missing a post really hurt him. So did not answering the Socratic questions.
I have to give this one to wormwood13. He just presented a better stance.

HM tried an opening that is short and to the point, this works sometimes; this time not so much. WW came out with both barrels blasting in an thoroughly thought out and effective opening.
I thought HM was going to recover in his first real post, but he posted almost completely about religion and while I had to go back and read it, the topic was not about religion. I thought I knew where he was going with it, but he had plenty of characters left and never got to the point.
HM came around in the next post, but only just barely. It was difficult to follow his posts, as they strayed from the topic so frequently.
In the end, WW kicked some real butt in this debate. He stayed on topic and attacked his opponent very effectively. Should be one to watch in the future.
Win to wormwood13
