Rodong Sinmun on Korean-Style Socialism -KCNA

Rodong Sinmun on Korean-Style Socialism

Pyongyang, May 16 (KCNA) -- Korean-style socialism is the road leading to making the Korean revolution ever-victorious. The Korean people will never step back even an inch from this road.

Rodong Sinmun Monday says this in a jointly signed article.

To preserve the nature of socialism is the eternal lifeline of Korean-style socialism, the article notes, and goes on:

Capitalism is the society based on individualism while socialism is the society based on collectivism. Therefore, the nature of socialism lies in collectivism. President Kim Il Sung built socialism centered on the popular masses, guided by the Juche idea, for the first time in history and provided the advantages of Korean-style socialism one by one as required by it.

For us to preserve the nature of socialism means, in the final analysis, protecting the socialist system, the collectivist ownership and collectivist lifestyle provided by the President and the socialist gains won by the Korean people at the cost of blood and sweat. Preserving the nature of socialism precisely means defending socialism and boundlessly glorifying it.

To preserve the nature of socialism, in particular, presents itself as an important issue in frustrating the imperialists' moves against socialism and successfully building a thriving socialist nation.

It is thanks to the original Songun leadership of Kim Jong Il that the nature of socialism is firmly preserved and its vitality is given full play with each passing day in the DPRK.

The article underscores the need to dynamically advance the general drive for improving the standard of people's of living under his leadership and demonstrate the invincible might and dignity of Korean-style socialism before the whole world.
