The Association For the Study of
Songun Politics UK(ASSPUK), the Juche Idea Study Group of England(JISGE)
, the UK Korean Friendship Association(UK KFA)and UK Preparatory Committee For the 2017 Gathering to Praise the Great Persons Born of Mt Paektu issued a joint statement on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the publication of "On Preserving the Juche Character and National Character of the Revolution and Construction" by the great leader comrade
KIM JONG IL:
This work was first published some 20 years ago on the 19th of June 1997 but is fresh as ever ! It was written at a time when the DPRK was facing sanctions and blockades of the imperialists as well as natural disasters which had caused a difficult situation in the DPRK . At the same time the big power chauvinists and international revisionists put pressure on the DPRK to 'open up' and 'reform' just as they had done.
In the work comrade KIM JONG IL stresses the necessity to maintain the Juche character and national character in the revolution pointing that "In order to thwart the dominationist machinations of the imperialists and reactionaries and give a strong impetus to the people’s cause of independence, the cause of socialism, we must maintain the Juche character of the revolutionary struggle and construction and sustain their national character.Preserving these qualities is imperative for the independent development of the country and nation and for success in realizing independence for the popular masses.Past experience and lessons have proved that adherence to the Juche character and national character is the key to success in the revolution and construction and vital to national prosperity."
This is indeed very true .In order to realise independent development and the independence of the
popular masses then the Juche and national character must be adhered to without fail . In fact it can be said that maintaining the Juche character and national character is intrinsic to socialism . In the
work comrade KIM JONG IL explains how the Korean communists and revolutionaries fought against the big-power chauvinists without compromise or concession and built an independent socialist country that is really the most precious gain and crucial for the lives of Korean people.
Comrade KIM JONG IL scathingly denounced the so-called prescriptions of the imperialists for other countries " As reality shows, in the countries which
accepted the imperialist “prescription”, social problems and economic
difficulties have become more serious and national disputes become more
chronic.The countries which are suffering social economic difficulties
and national disputes must reject the “prescription” of the imperialists
which only worsens their conditions.They must break through the
difficulties following their own prescription."
This is a most valuable teaching for the people's of the world. Many countries failed to build independent economies and instead depending on the imperialists only to become mired in debts and
oppressed by the IMF and World Bank . What is needed for such countries is for them to reject the prescriptions of the imperialists and follow their own path.
In the work comrade KIM JONG IL makes a most powerful case against globalisation which is a
a disaster for the peoples . He teaches that " We must smash up the vicious and cunning policy of the imperialists who seek to obliterate nations and the reactionary doctrines which try to justify this policy.
The imperialists’ reactionary policy of suppressing the Juche character of nations and obliterating national traits is now taking on a new form in the guise of gangster-like fuss about the trend towards a “monolithic” world.In the situation where each country and nation shape their destiny with their own ideas and systems, there can be no “monolithic” world which covers all spheres of politics, economy and culture.With social development and ties and interchange among different nations becoming closer, common features increase in the lives of nations.However, this process always presupposes the independent and individualistic development of nations and takes place on the basis of such development"
This is such a powerful rally cry against globalisation . These words of the great leader comrade
KIM JONG IL are a strong inspiration to those struggling against globalisation and imperialism !
All in all this is a great work that should be studied by anti-imperialists , anti-capitalists and anti-globalisation activists . We highly commend to the reader !
