Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) — It is nine years since the publication of leader Kim Jong Il’s famous work “The Juche Philosophy Is an Original Revolutionary Philosophy.”
The work published on July 26, Juche 85(1996) scientifically analyzed the limitation of the time when the precedent philosophies were set out and the originality of the Juche philosophy. It also clarified the idea that the Juche philosophy serves as a revolutionary and political philosophy of the Workers’ Party of Korea and principled issues in studying and explaining the Juche philosophy.
Rodong Sinmun today in an article dedicated to this day says that the work constitutes the most vivid expression of Kim Jong Il’s unbounded fidelity to the Juche idea fathered by President Kim Il Sung and, at the same time, the fruition of the outstanding ideological and theoretical activities of Kim Jong Il characterized by originality, the need of the times and scientific accuracy.
It goes on:
The work clearly explained the originality of the Juche philosophy and increased the historical position and the attraction of the Juche idea.
Kim Jong Il in his work clearly proved that the Juche philosophy set out by the President is a unique philosophy evolved and systematized with its own principles.
The Juche philosophy was the first in history to make a scientific and perfect clarification of the essential character of man and, on this basis, establish the most correct world outlook, socio-historical view and revolutionary outlook centering on man, thus overcoming the limitation and immaturity of the preceding philosophies and bringing about a fundamental change in the development of the human philosophical thought.
It was the work that once again clearly elucidated the historical position of the Juche philosophy as a new revolutionary philosophy which means the highest stage in the development of the human philosophical thought and represents the era of Juche, the historic era quite different from that to which the preceding theories belonged.
This work also demonstrated the might of the Juche philosophy as a weapon for revolutionary practice.
Kim Jong Il lucidly explained in the work that the Juche philosophy is a popular and revolutionary philosophy which was formulated and developed in depth reflecting the demand and will of the popular masses and generalizing the experience gained in their struggle and which has turned into a weapon in the struggle of the popular masses and a political philosophy clarifying the principled basis of politics leading the social development along the straight path.
The work clarified the fundamental guidelines that should be firmly held fast to in the study and explanation of the Juche philosophy, in particular. This is of great historic significance in glorifying the Juche philosophy as a weapon for revolutionary practice.
