BTW:

When are the leaders od North Korea going to be tired of "building" the Communisum...?

It would be a lot better for them, and for the public to choose the Chineses or the CE way...

It seems that it is not allowed to travel around country and even across big cities without special permition. Here you can see a block at one of central Pyongyang avenues:


Road to border with South Korea. Region around so-called Demilitarized Zone is said to be most militarized area in the world

In case of invasion that concrete blocks are to be dropped to the road to paralize tank approach:

Highways are wide so that in case of war, these can be used as airstrips.

Very interesting pics.
Sad to see they spend so much money on this unneeded motorways and highways.
Is the possesion of a car prohibited for 'normal' people or just not affordable?

People are not allowed to travel outside their city without permission. And cars are not affordable, and there is very few oil available.

There is no such thing as communist society. It is/was socialist society. Communism is the perfect form of society,although it will never work,because of human nature.

I thought that there were no items to be bought and that everything necessary was provided by the government.

^ Hah, the North Korean government doesn't provide anything, people starve in North Korea. But other than that, no, of course there are items to be bought, not as much as in developed countries, of course, and government should only provide you employment and some other things, like medical care etc.
