UNDERSTANDING THE RESPECT OF THE KOREAN PEOPLE FOR THEIR LEADERSHIP By Vitaly Lebedev, Russia(edited by the ASSPUK and Juche Idea Study Group of England)

by Vitaly Lebedev, Russia
As we know, in the society of the DPRK the role of the Leader is highlighted quite unusual for a foreigner. The Leader in this society has great respect, the reasons for which will be reviewed for the reader in this work.
Korean society is a revolutionary one, at the head of all stand the popular masses, who in addition to their own destiny, decide the fate of the revolution, and thus of the entire state and the nation.

Practical historical experience teaches us that the masses can't organize themselves according to their current human nature, so they need an organizer who is a guide of the masses and leads them in a revolutionary way, thus, is leading the revolution, which is a continuous process. We already mentioned this in the work "Ethics of the society of the DPRK"The leader is the brain centre, he relies on the masses and their aspirations and at the same time he gives valuable information and tips to be followed by the people in order to build  a thriving socialist state.
It may sound cynical, but not all people's aspirations can be revolutionary, because not all members of society can have higher revolutionary morality, and that is why there is a  need for a father and a teacher: the Leader who brings his people up as a true loving father.
In the DPRK the army has been put forward, ahead of the working class. This army has a high revolutionary morality based on a strong sense of collectivism and discipline and as well as devotion to the Leader.
Protection of the Leader for them is a priority that determines the fate of the entire nation.
This is not to say that the cornerstone is the protection only of the Leader, of course not. The DPRK army is called the Korean People's Army because it serves the interests of the masses, protects them and helps in building a powerful socialist state and is united with the people.
In the DPRK priority is given to military affairs.
People’s Army soldiers who have received their education in a revolutionary school, are a vanguard, nurtured under the wing of the Commander the Father, they are the vanguard of the revolution, they are an example to others.
The fact that the army has taken the place ahead of the working class, does not mean that it is socially above the latter, this means that the army is the role model for the labour class. -This policy is called the Songun
idea, which was developed already by the eternal President Kim Il Sung and got its name and the development under the Great leader Kim Jong Il.

This policy primarily assures the best self-defence to a small country with a small population in times when there are imperialist aggressors like the United States.

Back to the People’s Army soldiers.
The spirit of the People’s army soldiers is the Paektusan spirit, the spirit of veterans of the anti-Japanese revolution. Inherent in them will to fight with the enemy to the death, their hard offensive spirit – the willingness to go through the road encountered with difficulties and hardships, with a strong fighting spirit, which adhere to the principle "one hundred times fall down, but one hundred times get up and fight until the end!",-  that is the essence of the revolutionary spirit of Paektu.
The way, passed by the Marshal during these 4 years, is the military way, full of strong will.

With the spirit of Paektu born during the anti-Japanese guerilla struggle, under the leadership of Eternal President Kim Il Sung, he firmly led the army and people of the DPRK to victory, despite any trials and difficulties, just like the Great leader Kim Jong Il did in the era of the Arduous March, when Korea proved to the World that it will never bend to others' will.

The leader shares all the trials and tribulations with the people, he worships the people as heaven.
He achieves happiness only when people achieve it, just like a real loving father enjoy to see his becoming happy in life son or a daughter.

Revolutionary society requires revolutionary culture, which plays an important role in the education of the masses. Great attention is given to art, which should display the revolutionary aspirations and the essence of the nation. Art is a weapon of the revolution, without which the revolutionary society can not exist, and which aims to implement each person’s higher creative needs. The management of such an important object of
revolution is given personally to the Leader, the head of the revolution, who sets the right vector of development, focusing on the realities of our time.-This is the cultural revolution as a part of the whole revolution, led by the Leader.

Such activity of the Leader, as on the spot guidance plays a very important role in the construction of the socialist state, especially with the national specifics of all the East, including the CIS countries.
The leader is an effective Manager in the best sense of this word.
No matter how excellent each specialist is in his field, he/she cannot not understand the system of governance that is involving not only his specialist field. You may ask yourself a question: but after all, isn't that what a manager on the ground is for? Yes, managers are in charge, but they are in the same position as the professionals, only in a different area, and that’s how the complete chain is built up. And, as we know, any chain can falter, and it cannot be perfect because of the human factor. So the last links should be checked personally on top level, and this test is what the spot guidance is all about.
One striking example is the life of the Great leader Kim Jong Il, who has given his all to the spot guidance  and has passed away during one such inspection.
"For the sake of people we should get stars from the sky and make the stones bloom”.

That was his noble motto, and that’s why his thoughts and actions were totally dedicated to the people. That was his noble motto, and that’s why his thoughts and actions were totally dedicated to the people.

He visited all the inhabited places of the country, from a remote village in the North to an island village in the southern tip, taking care of the citizens and surrounding them with love. During on the spot guidance at he construction site of a power plant he gave priority to addressing the issue of housing for the evacuees from the flooded places, more so than to the construction of a power plant itself. Being immersed in affairs of state during the critical period, he was sleeping 5 hours a day and  spent at least two days a week travelling around the country for giving on the spot guidance. He had a very good memory, knew by heart statistical references.  He knew Chinese and Russian languages.
On the way to his revolutionary activities, he travelled to meet with  people and  to give local governance more than 1 674 610 li. Almost every his birthday, holidays and Sundays were spent under way.
And in December 2011, in the last days of his life, he gave guidance to large enterprises in the city of
Hamheung, visited music information Centre "Hana", a shopping centre in the Kwangbok district, gave valuable advice to the employees of the relevant sectors: to contribute to improving the lives of the people. He also took measures to supply the inhabitants of the capital with fresh fish. During his tireless on the spot guidance the ideals of the people became a reality in front of their eyes.
The reader will inevitably begin to compare the merits of the Leaders, which is not respectful and, at this point, wrong, but since this is an expectation of an average reader, then we will give the example of Marshal Kim Jong Un who headed the new era and reached great heights in the construction of powerful economically state.
In December 2012, despite the hype about "sanctions", with the will that Korea will do as it has decided, he gave the order to launch Korea's first practical artificial space satellite, personally watching the whole process.
In response to the nuclear threats of the USA after the satellite launch, the DPRK in February 2013, conducted a third underground nuclear test, and in March 2013, the Marshal held an emergency  meeting associated with the implementation by the strategic rocket forces of the KPA of the preparing a fire blow, and gave final approval for the strike, including the areas with US military bases on Guam, Hawaii and even in the continental United States.
In March 2012 he was inspecting Panmunjom on military demarcation line, which is considered the "hot
spot" on the Korean Peninsula. He went out in broad daylight in the middle of Panmunjom – the place which is stuffed with American precision weapons. In August 2012, when the U.S. and South Korea carried out military exercises code-named "Ulji freedom guardian" against the DPRK, he sailed on a small wooden vessel with a capacity of 27 HP to the defence squad of the island which is the hottest point on the southern edge of the south western front of the Korean Peninsula, where there were a huge enemy’s  armed forces with the latest types of military equipment.
In addition, the fact that the first Congress of airmen of the KPA was held in Pyongyang in April 2014, has demonstrated the daring of Kim Jong Un. It was a time in the midst of the air joint manoeuvres of the U.S. troops and South Korea.
In October 2014 the Yonphung Scientists Rest Home was completed in less than 4 months, the construction of which was supervised personally by the Marshal.
In January 2015, when the United States started making a fuss again with militaristic fervour in order to hit and destroy the DPRK, he initiated and inspected military training in striking by all forces on the sea objects of the enemy.

In February 2015 the Marshal visited with the inspection the construction site of the Sci Tech complex , the construction of which was completed in 9 months, in October, when he also conducted an inspection before opening. In March 2015 he instructed to begin active restoration of forests and planted trees personally, together with the 447 detachment of air force and anti-aircraft forces of the KPA, together with combat pilots.

Are you tired of reading?
Now imagine that this is only a small part of the work of the Leader.
Such trips are very much exhausting - the reader is probably already familiar with this feeling.
The leader dedicate to the full to service to his people as the most precious in the world and sacrifices his health. Under such circumstances, he deserved the necessary conditions of life which people are providing to him, in gratitude, for the time of his work.
Sometimes we get angry when we read comments of foreigners, where they feel uncomfortable about a glass of iced tea given to  the Marshal, or about his light clothing compared to the thick uniforms of the military during the organization of the competition of the pilots of the KPA.
Our enemies constantly resort to perfidy and rudeness towards the Leader, and our task is to smash them to smithereens, basing on the facts contained in this work!
Every time people see new achievements under the wise leadership of the Marshal, the people feel their spirit of devotion to the common cause lifting. If there is somebody to whom a Korean trusts his destiny, it is the Leader, but he always remains the full master of his destiny himself.

Now we will touch upon traditional component in the Korean society.
As history has shown in practice, the transition to socialism from feudalism is possible.
Such transition has its own complex features in cultural terms and therefore needs intensive work with the masses, their cultural re-education.
The great leader Kim Jong Il wrote: "Some traditions are transmitted from the earliest times, but if they are obsolete, backward, do not meet the requirements of the time, they have to be eliminated completely". Here it is emphasized that it is necessary to eliminate the things that interfere with the revolutionary development of the masses.
But there is something that does not hinder, but rather strengthens the nation. One such example is the national form of representation in culture which is socialist in content.
Previously, the Korean people had the kings, emperors, whom they revered and compared with the sky, attributing to them supernatural abilities, and it was not always correct, as the power was not with the people, but belonged personally to the Emperor.
In the new revolutionary society the power is the people's power by its content; the
Leader worships the people like heaven, and the people pay respect to him too - out of gratitude, and not because he has power.

But the form of it is partly retained as old, and people respecting him, also sometimes attribute to him supernatural power in their aspiration, which may be criticised by the party line. But the aspiration of the people cannot just be thrown away, that would be nothing but an insult and a violation of human rights, that is why in the DPRK there is freedom of religion, freedom of speech, which confirms genuine democracy.

In spite of dogmatists, I will say that the Korean society has the national kernel, which is quite archaic, it also plays a role of the form and shapes it. It’s like a classic - old architectural school that was used on working out of the grand Stalinist style.
Ancient Korea was a Buddhist state, but its generals had more respect from their supporters if they, facing any difficulties on the battlefield, did not pray to the higher forces, because the commander must always rely on his own strength.
Revolutionary Korean society is a new type of society where the Leader stand at the top like commander on a battlefield. This society is filled though with the philosophy of of the commander,s philosophy of self-reliance.
The Juche Ideas, in essence, represents the aspirations of the Korean nation, which was correctly formulated into the ideology by the eternal President Kim Il Sung, later developed under the wise
leadership of the Great leader Kim Jong Il and Marshal Kim Jong Un.

Thus, the socialist revolution in Korea is truly national in its character, it does not contradict the culture of the nation and even accentuates its features.

Kim Jong Il’s quotes about loyalty:
If  you will maintain your belief in loyalty and sense of duty, you will be devoted to it, if you will lose it, you will be a hypocrite.
Loyalty to the party and the leader should become an honour, a matter of conscience, duty and a matter of practice, before becoming a duty.
Only  the allegiance that is grown from the roots of belief, may become absolute.
Loyalty to the Leader must become a belief, a matter of conscience, a moral code, must enter in the whole life.
The relationship between Leader and soldier, between Leader and people is not a relationship of ruler and subordinate, they are based on love and devotion.
The dignity of man who is faithful to the Leader, is particularly noticeable in the hour of trial, and not in a favourable time for him.
More loyal people in the country, and it will prospers, more hypocrites — and it will be destroyed.

To this day, thanks to this education of the masses, the DPRK is a springboard of revolution, originating in the glorious military traditions of the national liberation front, when guerrilla groups were united around General Kim Il Sung who provided a valid self-sufficient people's democratic path towards building of the future state.
The revolutionary process  is a process of constant education, constant working on yourself and on others, this process is impossible without teachers.
The successful launch of peaceful satellites of the DPRK to the orbit of our planet, strengthening of the ideological education of the people, cleansing the party from factionalists and hostile elements, strengthening and enrichment of the revolutionary ideas of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the welfare of the people, in all of this we can see his guidance.
Dear comrade Kim Jong Un, in a short time, taking the leadership in his hands, flawlessly manages all affairs of the state. We are confident that Korea speeding to the victory under the leadership
of  Kim Jong Un, will have a bright future!
