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

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.

leader 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 and " Giving Priority to Ideological work is essential for
accomplishing socialism" which inspired hope amongst the people of the
world who aspire 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

Songun politics into practice 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

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.

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 the great leader comrade Kim Jong
