Was Kim Jong-il a good or a bad leader?

He was a communist dictator who cut off North Korea from the rest of the world. He could be nearly recognized as being on the same shameful level as Hitler and Stalin...

What did Kim Jong Il do for North Korea?

There were many problems with his goal, but the people of the country respect him because they were taught that he united(protected) the country from the "evil" American rule. The only good thing that he did was probably uniting North Korea. Overall, he was a bad leader but was respected for maintaining the country and not letting it go into another civil war. Kim also developed good diplomatic relations with other communist countries, so the people in South Korea feel more secure. His encouragement to build a nuclear bomb succeeded, so people felt even more secure. No matter how poor, if the people of that country feel safe, they will still feel satisfied. They think that money only brings temporary prosperity and spoiled children, while safety brings peace for future generations.

P.S. when I say "evil" American rule. I'm referring to the fact that North Koreans feel hatred towards the UN (mostly Americans fought in the Korean War) because it forced them to stay above the 38th Parallel. North Korea could have been two times bigger if it were not for the UN (it's quite crowded in that small country).

Nevertheless, the UN had to defend the democratic part of Korea because North and East Asia would all be communist; a real treat. Basically, North Koreans just think that Kim is "protecting" the common wealth's privacy. North Koreans think that they would be bossed around (like that would happen) by America if it weren't for Kim.

P.P.S. another reason for the mourning might have been that they felt that Kim's son was unable to fulfill his father's duty.

P.P.P.S. Personally, people saying that the people of the country were brainwashed or forced to cry is absurd. It's impossible to brainwash an entire population. It's most probable that the citizens were only taught Kim's accomplishments, not failures. The crying might have been indirect, but there must have been emotion behind it. The videos all show a strong emotion that can't even be portrayed by the best actors in the world. (I'm still a patriot)

How did kim jong-il become a dictator?

A dictator is a ruler who has complete power in a country, especially power which was obtained by force and is used unfairly or cruelly. Kim Jong Il's rise to power had to appear spontaneous, as if it was a result of an uncontrollable popular movement. The only reason why he could become a new leader was, of course, the great and all-consuming love which 'the revolutionary masses ' felt for him It is not too difficult to understand the reasons behind Kim II Sung's decision to break away from the communist tradition and choose his son as his heir. Kim Il Sung had lived through the turbulent period of de-Stalinization. He saw how the posthumous reputation of the communist strongmen had been destroyed by their henchmen- the very same people who had once pledged loyalty to them. Once a leader was dead, he was accused of transgressions, mistakes and crimes. Thus his successor could briefly boast popular support for a new government. There was only one way to insure that his regime and fame would outlive Kim II Sung himself: to arrange a transfer of power within the ruling family. This was easier to accomplish in NK than elsewhere, since form the 1960s it had a much greater degree of nepotism than other communist countries. The promotion of Kim Jong Il triggered an unprecedented parallel campaign of glorification of his mother, a guerrilla fighter As Kim Jong Il solidified power as a dynastic successor, he gained hold of one of the most important posts in the country: general secretary of the ruling worker's party. It would give him near complete autonomy to run the country as he saw fit., In 1994, his father would be dead of a heart attack, leaving the younger Kim in full command. During the four years of official mourning for his father, Kim Jong Il continued to rule the country with a heavy hand. Displaying what are now frequently cited eccentricities, Kim reportedly refused to allow his father's other children to attend the funeral and spent an "astronomical sum" on a mausoleum for his father's body. Once Kim was firmly in power after his father's death, the country's march toward militarism continued. As his former teacher recounts, "Kim believed that although North Korea is a small state, through a 'military-first' policy, he could stabilize the nation; by growing the military, he could make North Korea a 'powerful and prosperous state.'" The nuclear crisis that ensued made North Korea an international pariah instead.
