    Americans know mindless sitcoms better than they know politics & civics. I contemplate if Civics taught any longer in the education systems. This miniseries should open your eyes. Dictators Playbook Tactics are as old as ancient Greeks and still used in modern times. Even by narcissistic buffoon wanna be Dictators.

    Episode 1, Kim II Sung briefly mentions that the U.S. bombed N. Korea from 1950-53, killing approx. 20% of the entire population. The program then seems to indicate that it is a mystery as to why Kim II Sung, or anyone in N. Korea for that matter, would fear the U.S.! Kim II Sung is a dictator. However, I hope that the formulaic nature of explaining a dictator using a simple set of rules does not continue in future episodes. Providing a formulaic biography of each dictator using a reductionist "playbook" with minimal attention paid to unique historical events is not worthy of the PBS brand.
