Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) — Preventing the imperialists from ideological and cultural poisoning is an important issue related to the destiny of the socialist cause, the cause for independence against imperialism and the life and death of the country and nation, says Rodong Sinmun in an article Friday.
It goes on:
If the poisoning is allowed, a social system is impaired and ceases to exist in the end.
This is eloquently proved by the tragic collapses of some socialist countries.
The imperialists ratcheted up broadcasting in an attempt to create an illusion about capitalism while making reactionary publications and sexual and corrupt films and music massively infiltrate into those countries.
So there were widespread ideological and moral break-up and degeneration among people.
Those who were poisoned by the reactionary ideology and culture hated working and were attracted by capitalism.
It is crystal clear that those who discard the revolutionary faith and live only for themselves can not defend socialism, the collective society.
In the end people of those countries did nothing but saw the socialist renegades and the imperialists cat’s paws, lower and trample down the socialist red flag. This is not a story of bygone days.
The present century witnessed abnormal regime changes in several countries. Those are due to the ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare by the U.S.-led imperialists.
Youth are the primary target of this ideological and cultural poisoning campaign.
If the ideological education of them is neglected, they can be easily spoiled by the poisoning and troublemakers of the society.
It is impossible to bring down the country having the young people politically and ideologically strong and morally good.
