Ever wanted to overthrow a dictatorship? Well now you can from the comfort of your own couch.
Right, we know it's the end of January and pay day is off in the distance somewhere, but if you've got a spare $1.1 million (jsut under €950,000) then we think we've got the Kickstarter for you.
A new crowdfunding project that hopes to "help bring freedom to North Korea" is looking to raise $10 million in order to overthrow Kim Jong-Un and give the people of North Korea the freedom they have been fighting for, or at least that the defectors have been fighting for anyway. According to the Kickstarter page, the main problems are that for those who want to fight the government, there is no effective communication network, a lack of organisation, and no hope for those who are left in the country.
With the money, they hope to install a proper communication network that will help them to organise themselves properly, and hope will return to the resistance effort as a result. The group, who call themselves Freedom Now, "a covert multi-national group with the sole mission of putting a stop to the tyrannical regime of Kim Jong-Un", are asking for people to donate what they can, from $10 all the way up to $1.1 million.
Your $10 donation gets you a certificate thanking you for your service in taking down Kim Jong-Un and gets a loaf of bread to the freedom fighters. $50 helps them build a foxhole (you get a personalised signed cert), $100 gets a rusty AK, $5,000 gets night vision goggles and your name will be put on a large statue honouring those who helped the resistance if the coup is successful, while the highest donation will get you sensitive information after the coup, giving you "sole ownership of all of the media files collected during the extent of the film project and you will be able to use all media for any commercial purpose".
The media files are coming from the freedom fighters, as Freedom Now won't physically be fighting the battle, but will be helping to organise it and "outfitting numerous pro-democracy North Korean defectors with cameras (for intelligence) and filming everything we are able to personally of resistance activities outside of North Korea".
They are taking bids for that particular footage and all the media related to it, but we're guessing they're using $1.1 million as a ballpark figure. As of the time of writing, they've got a ways to go yet, as they've only managed to raise $40 so far. You can check out the full list of rewards, as well as more about the project, on the Kickstarter page.
