Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) — The principle of collectivism should be firmly maintained in all fabrics of social life in order to shatter the U.S. imperialists’ frantic moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and defend and advance Korean socialism to victory, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article.
Collectivism is what keeps socialism alive, the article notes, and goes on:
The principle of collectivism was not observed in socialist construction in a number of erstwhile socialist countries. This caused individualism to prevail in all sectors of the state and social management, including politics, economy and culture, and led to the collapse of socialism.
Today our country has become a forefront of the most acute struggle against imperialism and the United States.
While intensifying the moves for military aggression, the U.S. imperialists and other reactionaries have made desperate efforts to infuse individualism into our country by all means and methods such as the infiltration of bourgeois idea and culture in an attempt to disintegrate our socialism.
It is the sinister intention of the U.S. imperialists to foster egoism among people by spreading the corrupt bourgeois lifestyle and weaken the principle of collectivism in all spheres of social life and thus undermine our socialism.
The might of the Korean-style socialism precisely means the might of the single-minded unity and collectivism constitutes a fundamental cornerstone of the single-minded unity of the Party, the army and the people.
It is the consistent policy and unshakable will of the Workers’ Party of Korea to hold fast to collectivism as the lifeline for accomplishing the socialist cause.
