That likely won't bother the government. They can easily perform operations through other countries.
Considering the majority likely don't even get internet (or they get the NK Govt's version of it), this probably wouldn't be that bothersome to their govt. as they probably have their own backup systems in place for access. In a way, NK has been already "cut the cable" on many things.

In case it's the pilot, a hundred people would have no problem breaking the door down.

Regardless of whether the post is "politically incorrect" or not, the important thing to remember is that we may eventually become just like the "evil adversary" that we don't want to become, if we continue to go on sacrificing liberties for "safety".
