Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today dedicates a signed article to the 24th anniversary of the publication of leader Kim Jong Il’s famous work “On the Juche Idea.”
In the past 24 years the validity, truth and vitality of the Juche idea have been clearly proved, the article says, and goes on:
The Juche idea is the lifeline and the source of the invincible might of Korean-style socialism.
It serves as an undying banner which made Korean-style socialism the most advantageous one centered on the popular masses.
In the whole course of socialist construction the Workers’ Party of Korea has held fast to the principle of making everything serve the popular masses, proceeding from the requirements of the Juche idea.
The Korean people are now dynamically stepping up the general march for the building of a great prosperous powerful socialist nation with love for their socialist system which ensures them human dignity and rights, worthwhile life and happiness. They will never barter Korean-style socialism, their life and soul, for anything else.
The Juche idea is a militant banner that helped Korean-style socialism shine as the socialism of national independence firmly guaranteeing independence of the country and the nation.
Our Party and people have built socialism our own way according to our independent viewpoint and faith under the banner of Juche, not relying on any existing theories or others’ experience. Thus they could successfully build in this land a powerful socialist state, independent in politics, self-supporting in economy and self-reliant in national defence, which defends independence of the country and the nation.
The Juche idea is a powerful ideological weapon which provided the firm revolutionary forces enough to defend and accomplish the cause of socialism to the end.
The Songun idea of the Party with its root on the Juche idea serves as a militant banner which made Korean-style socialism shine as an invincible socialism with everlasting viability. As the Songun idea illuminates the road ahead, in our country the unity of the army and people based on the revolutionary soldier spirit has been firmly materialized, the single-minded unity of the Party and the revolutionary ranks strengthened on a high level and powerful military capacity provided to firmly defend the gains of socialism achieved with blood.
