    a genius which only now seems to...

    Please explain the following in bold more easily.

    ...the (North Korean) regime was very quick to adjust its claims downward when it had to, i.e. in response to post-Soviet economic realities and the influx of heterodox information. But to concede the regime's genius for propaganda---a genius which only now seems to be deserting it---is not to imply that it does not believe the official myths itself.

    Thank you.

    The regime had a genius for propaganda but now it's losing that genius. Its propaganda is no longer as good as it was.
