Kim Jong Il's book gives me a monarchy vibe rather than most royalists I speak to.
>hereditary Paektu dynasty, but more importantlyone influential family, one great leader
>very important, but the pre-eminence, extraordinary virtue of the Leaders, comparisons with the Sun itself (a theme greatly caught up with in monarchy)
>strong personalities (monarchy is personal)
>the recognition of a supreme leader
>their leadership is recognized as fatherly
>they pretty much are there as leader for a lifetime despite participating and having their turns in term limits
Much of the essence is there.
It might not be formally royal, because it prioritizes "leadership" in principle of the WPK, but then again it doesn't matter much to me.
Julius Caesar was a literal dictator, but half the royals on here take after his name (Kaiser/Tsar).
