Are the DPRK and former German Democratic Republic really the same ?


The other day someone on Twitter compared the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK)  to the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) . The GDR is missed by many of its former citizens and there is a lot of nostalgia for it (for one thing unlike West Germany , it was not run by a clique of former Nazi generals, ex SS officers, capitalists , landlords and speculators) . However the comparison was by a detractor of the DPRK and was intended to put the DPRK in a negative light . So are the DPRK and the former GDR similar ?

There are of course big similarities as both were  socialist states in divided nations and built socialism in confrontation with imperialism . Arguably the GDR along with Romania , was the DPRK’s closest friend among the East European socialist countries. Whilst there are quite a few similarities at the same time there were big differences . The DPRK pursued independence and developed its own independent ideology, the Juche idea , whereas the GDR maintained close ties with the former Soviet Union . President KIM IL SUNG once observed that It was said that when it rained in Moscow , people in East Berlin carried umbrellas. The GDR was a member of the Warsaw Pact and the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance whereas the DPRK wanted to create an independent national Economy.The DPRK and GDR also had different policies towards reunification .

The ruling party of the GDR the SED (Socialist Unity Party) developed the theory of two German nations . The GDR established a permanent mission in West Germany . The DPRK , however , believes that there is only one Korean nation , not two and believes in reunification on the basis of independence .The DPRK has never recognised the south Korean puppet regime . The DPRK attached great emphasis to ideological work whereas the GDR did not and was flooded with Western imperialist culture and ideology. The DPRK is here to stay and will not collapse like the former GDR. So although at first glance there may be similarities between the DPRK and former GDR they are actually very different.

Let us abolish National Security Law and dismantle People’s Power Party



According to Jaju Sibo, the Progressive Federation of University Students called a news conference in demand of abolition of the NSL outside the office of a member of the PPP.

The NSL is draconian law which should be abolished as it is the reproduction of law for maintenance of the public peace in the days of Japan’s military occupation of Korea. The law, which had suppressed the fighters for national independence, has watched every movement of the people, a member of the organization said.

They chanted slogans in demand of total abolition of the NSL and PPP.

 Although  some 9 years have passed since the unexpected decease of comrade Kim Jong Il the chairman of the National Defence Commission of  the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) ,our sense of loss is not diminished nor is our reverence .
    The demise of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was the greatest loss of the Korean people as he was the benevolent father of the Korean people. It was also the greatest loss of the world revolutionary people and the Juche Idea and Songun Idea followers of the world . Although the heart of comrade Kim Jong Il ceased to beat on December 17th 2011 he is alive in the hearts and minds of the Korean people and world people and his ideas live on. Furthermore comrade Kim Jong Il was acclaimed as the eternal general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and the eternal chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK . This was an affirmation of the deep loyalty of the Korean people to comrade Kim Jong Il
   The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il was a leader of extraordinary ability and fortitude. His accomplishment and achievements span many different fields and sectors from culture to military affairs. He was best known to the world people as the great defender of socialism and independence and the leader who developed the Juche idea and Songun idea. Indeed the name of comrade Kim Jong Il is intimately bound up with the administration of Songun politics.
    The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il led the Korean revolution for a period of more than five decades which began with his guidance to the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su no 105 tank division of the Korean People's Army on the 25th of August 1960 . Under the leadership of comrade Kim Jong Il the DPRK became a mighty power of ideology and politics and also a socialist military power possessing its own powerful war deterrent which makes the imperialists shake with fear.
 Comrade Kim Jong Il was the loyal and faithful successor to the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung. He was the standard bearer of the Juche revolutionary cause which had been pioneered by the great leader generalissimo Kim Il Sung the eternal president of the DPRK .He ensured that the WPK became the party of the great leader comrade Kim Il Sung defending the monolithic unity of the Workers' Party of Korea, smashing the attempts of modern revisionists, opportunists ,factionalists and great power chauvinists to defile the revolutionary constancy of Juche. When the imperialist reactionaries and renegades of socialism sneered at socialism , demanding that the DPRK "open up" and "reform" he declared "Expect No Change from Me !.
Comrade Kim Jong Il defended and developed the purity of the Juche Idea . He systematised and enriched the Juche idea in his historic 1982 thesis "On the Juche Idea ". This work constitutes an almanac of the Juche idea which clarified its philosophical essence and that man has independence, consciousness and creativity. Thus the Juche idea shines out a philosophy for achieving the independence of the popular masses . The Juche idea is a powerful weapon for achieving human emancipation from all kinds of misery and oppression.
When socialism was frustrated in some countries owing to the treachery of modern revisionism  comrade Kim Jong Il energetically defended socialism and wrote brilliant works such as "Our Socialism Centred on the Popular Masses Shall Not Perish , "Abuses of Socialism are Intolerable" "Socialism Is A Science , " Giving Priority to Ideological work is essential for accomplishing socialism" and many others  provided a source of hope for the people aspiring to socialism.

   The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il developed in depth the Songun idea an embodiment of the Juche Idea and treasured sword for defending socialist Korea . The Songun Idea and Songun politics are the cutting edge of the anti-imperialist class struggle in this era.  Comrade Kim Jong Il fully administered  Songun politics as supreme commander of the Korean People's Army comrade Kim Jong Il led the work of defence up-building and continued the cause of Juche-army building pioneered by the great leader President Kim Il Sung. Stressing the importance of the anti-imperialist military front led the DPRK to victory in the DPRK-US confrontation smiting the reactionary US imperialists by carrying out 2 nuclear tests so that the DPRK became a global nuclear power , a proud independent socialist nuclear power of Juche. Thanks to this legacy bequeathed by comrade Kim Jong Il the DPRK can sit  down and negotiate with the USA as an equal partner.
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il led the struggle to build up the independent national economy . He made sure that the living standards of the Korean people were improved . Under his leadership the many social benefits enjoyed by the Korean people were preserved and further enhanced. He passed away whilst a trip of on the spot guidance, thus he was working for the people right up to the last minute. He always wore plain clothes . He was the epitome of a true people's leader.
Comrade Kim Jong Il, the lodestar of national reunification, led the Korean people along the road of independence and great national unity with his resolute will to implement the instructions of the great leader President Kim Il Sung for national reunification. The June 15 declaration which embodied the concept of "By Our Nation Itself", broke through the barrier of national division imposed by the US imperialists.
The great leader comrade Kim Jong Il led the cause of anti-imperialist independence throughout the world. Songun politics was an inspiration to the peoples struggling against imperialism and the Juche Idea a powerful compass for defeating imperialism. The many works written by comrade Kim Jong Il are a guiding compass for the fighting peoples of the world. The DPRK became associated with the defence of the socialist principle , thus encouraging the world people in their struggle for socialism.
   We deeply cherish the memory of  comrade Kim Jong Il on the 8th anniversary of his passing away .Today the Korean people under the wise leadership of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un are working hard to implement the behests of the great leader comrade Kim Jong Il and model the whole of society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
