A country must put emphasis on moral legitimacy, just like humans. However, North Korean regime is apparently losing the reason of state by deteriorating international relations including the ROK.
North Korea's fragile foreign affairs, and provocations against South Korea is believed to be an act of survival, but the repeated actions are exacerbating the problem of legitimacy of the mere existence of North Korea..
3 generation of Kim's have reigned North Korea for over 60 years, and is now facing the worst ever domestic foreign problems. In order to overcome the hardships the north is facing, they must find the far gone reason of state. Kim Jong-Un must communicate with the international society and cooperate by reforms and opening up.
