To dream of North Korea represents a mindset where there are persistent feelings about being suppressed by a dangerous unquestionable factor. Toeing the line to keep dominant family members or your boss happy. Feelings about whole families or corporate structures being completely subordinate to someone who never has to listen to others feelings. Living in anxiety about embarrassing someone with total power over you. Feeling forced to subordinate, keep quiet, or give total respect to control freak. Feeling forced to allow a totally controlling “asshole” to like himself while you can do nothing about it. Feeling surrounded by people who are unquestionably wonderful or obedient because they fear they might get into trouble.
Feeling that you are experiencing a powerful prolonged lesson in the importance of standing up for yourself to bullies or arrogant controlling people who took control from you. Unbearable hope that an arrogant jerk will die. The worst nightmare scenario of a jerk getting total control. Dictatorship mentality that has gone overboard with control with ridiculous or childish measures to make people like it against their will.
The emptiness of living a military life when you don’t like genuinely like it. Living with the emptiness of tax laws that you feel follow you.
Example: A man dreamed of being caught and tortured inside North Korea and forced to be poor and work for little food for 20 years before finally returning to the America where he had difficult adjusting to civilian jobs. In waking life was a retired military sergeant. Dreaming about being in North Korea for 20 years in this case may have reflected his feelings about the strict nature of military law and unsatisfying pay.
Example 2: A man dreamed of worrying about North Korea launching a missile attack. In waking life he was worried about the IRS coming after him for tax debts while his business was failing. North Korea in this case may have reflected his feeling about the unbearableness of needing to pay taxes when he didn’t think it was fair.
