Pyongyang, October 24 (KCNA) -- To prevent the imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning is very important for further consolidating the politico-ideological base of the DPRK, Rodong Sinmun Monday says in an article.
It goes on:
What the imperialists fear most in the way of dominating and
plundering other countries is the united strength of the people who have
been politically awakened.
As the struggle of the people for independence is gaining in scope
and strength, the imperialist reactionary forces attach greater
importance to the ideological and cultural poisoning and leave no means
untried to this end.
The main purpose of the imperialists' ideological and cultural
poisoning is to spread bourgeois idea and capitalist lifestyle in other
In the past the reactionary idea and culture played the role of a
guide for aggression, but now it plays a main role for aggression.
In recent years the U.S. and other imperialist forces brought down
governments in some countries and set up pro-U.S. regimes there through
ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare. As a
matter of fact, this was hard to gain even through wars of aggression
claiming huge expenses and heavy casualties.
Finding it hard to bring the DPRK under control by force, they are
now persistently working to infiltrate capitalist ideas and culture into
its society, while frantically conducting all sorts of false propaganda
against it, the article says, calling for rooting out all sorts of
unsound and non-socialist factors in all fabrics of the society and
establishing noble ideological and moral traits and lifestyle. -0-
