Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) — Leader Kim Jong Il’s aphorism “The Destiny of a Nation Is a Destiny of an Individual and the Latter’s Life Is Guaranteed by the Former’s Life” gives Juche-based exposition of the destiny and life of the nation and an individual and clarifies a correct view on their relationship on this basis, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in a signed article.
The aphorism expounds the idea that the destiny of the nation is inseparably linked to that of an individual and the life of an individual will be praiseworthy only when it is devoted to achieving the prosperity of the nation, the article says, and goes on:
The genuine life of human being is unthinkable apart from the country and the nation and the destiny of human being cannot be existent apart from that of the country and the nation.
The history of the nation’s division and the on-going movement for national reunification eloquently prove the truth of this aphorism.
National reunification will guarantee the independence of the nation and its happiness and prosperity. The country can be reunified only when all the fellow countrymen relate their destiny to that of the country and the nation and turn out as one for its sovereignty.
The birth of the June 15 era is a historic victory achieved in the struggle to develop the cause of national reunification into the cause of national independence and a precious fruition of the struggle. The Koreans are waging a dynamic nationwide struggle to achieve national reconciliation, cooperation and independent reunification in the idea of “By our nation itself” and registering wonderful successes in the struggle. The stirring reality of the June 15 era of reunification shows that miracles and successes are made only when all fellow countrymen make patriotic devotion with consciousness that they are masters responsible for the destiny and life of the nation and an individual.
This is a clear proof of the validity and the vitality of Kim Jong Il’s aphorism that gives perfect and most correct exposition of the correlation of the destiny and life of the nation and an individual.
The aphorism serves as patriotic one and a banner of struggle and life which powerfully arouses all the members of the nation to the struggle to achieve the independence of the country and the nation and co-prosperity of the nation with the ideological sentiment of genuine patriotism.
