Although it is four years since the great leader chairman Kim Jong Il passed away, on the 17th of December 2011, his ideas and thoughts burn ever more brightly and are undimmed by the passage of time. Indeed they are a lighthouse nay a lodestar guiding us through the fog of imperialism and capitalism .
  Chairman Kim Jong Il developed and systematised the Juche Idea and he also pushed forward the development of the Songun Idea and administered Songun politics . In today's world the Juche Idea and Songun Politics are more valid than ever before.
   Chairman Kim Jong Il was the successor to the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered by the great  leader President Kim Il Sung. As a loyal disciple of President Kim Il Sung , leader Kim Jong Il worked very hard to develop and systematise the Juche Idea . The summation of this work was the publication of the immortal thesis "ON THE JUCHE IDEA " on the 31st of March 1982. Many had taken the Juche Idea as simply meaning  self-reliance  and independence , of course the application of the Juche Idea to the field of state activity does indeed mean  Juche in ideology, independence in politics , self-sufficiency in the economy  and self-reliance in national defence . However Kim Jong Il delved into the intellectual and philosophical essence and nature of the Juche Idea . Essentially the Juche Idea is crystallised in the independent stand and the creative stand . The independent stand means  rejecting dependence on others and solving problems on one's own initiative . The creative stand means relying on the creativity and initiative of the  masses.Furthermore Kim Jong Il defined the nature of man  as having independence, creativity and consciousness.
   The vitality and correctness of the Juche Idea has been proved many times over. In the recent period many countries have suffered crisis, depression and many problems due to the fact that they did not follow the road of independence and self-reliance but instead put their faith in getting handouts from the imperialists. Many countries are suffering from unemployment and poverty but one country in the world is free from crisis with an expanding economy and does not need bailouts from the World Bank and the IMF , the country is Juche Korea.
      During the past four years the Juche Idea has grown in attraction with new Juche Idea Study groups being formed . A World Juche Congress was held in April 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great leader President Kim Il Sung , this was attended by over 300 delegates from the four corners of the globe including Party general secretaries and former government ministers. In October 2015 a seminar on sharing experiences in disseminating the Juche Idea was held in Pyongyang .
   The great Leader comrade Kim Jong Il administered Songun politics fully by building up the Korean People's Army as the core force of the Korean revolution. He ensured that the KPA was not only strong in arms but strong in ideology and politics. Opposing the modern revisionists attempts to 'de politicise ' and ' de ideologise' the army he ensured that the army held fast to the line of being the revolutionary armed force of the Workers' Party of Korea. Under the banner of the Songun Idea the DPRK pursues the most militant anti-imperialist, anti US line. The DPRK is the most anti-American country in the world as it carries the slogan “Let Us Wipe Out the US imperialist aggressors the sworn enemy of the Korean people “on its tanks. It rejects the ideological and cultural poisoning of imperialism. Supreme Commander Kim Jong Il fully promoted the revolutionary soldier spirit, the epitome of the militant Songun ideology, which pulsated throughout society leading to world-startling feats like the construction of the Anbyon power station.
    The DPRK faced acute threats from US imperialism and all kinds of international reactionary forces Supreme Commander comrade Kim Jong Il    has by his brilliant commanding art defeated all these attempts to stifle Korean style socialism by force, honourably defending Juche Korea, the bastion of socialism.
The imperialists, led by the US imperialists have become ever more blatant in their aggression against independent and sovereign nations in the past four years. The aggressive nature of US imperialism has not changed in the least . Many people  including small children have fallen victim to the drones and bombs of US imperialism .The US imperialists have attacked or intervened or interfered in many countries such as Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria and even the Ukraine. Governments have been toppled by the CIA of the US.However one country stands out as a a beacon of independence, a citadel of  militant anti-imperialist defiance,that country is Korea of Songun .
    The current events around the world prove the validity of Songun politics . The world people want to study Songun politics more deeply ,so Songun politics study groups are being set up and there are many websites promoting Songun politics.An international sudy centre for Songun politics has been set up.
   Thus the past four years have shown that the relevance and vitality of the Juche Idea and Songun Idea  associated with eternal chairman Kim Jong Il  has grown .  The successor to the Juche revolutionary cause and Songun revolutionary dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un the great  has carried the Juche Idea and Songun Idea to a new higher level by formulating Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism . The ideas  and thoughts of  the great leader chairman Kim Jong Il  burn ever more brightly four years after his demise.
