A skype meeting of the Association For the Study of Songun Politics UK, Juche Idea Study Group of England was held on the 22nd of March at 19.30 hours and was participated in by members from London, Bedford, Derbyshire and Stoke On Trent .
Firstly , a discussion was held on the 25th anniversary of the work "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable" published by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL on the 1st of March 1993,
Chairman Dr Dermot Hudson said that "
It was 25 years ago that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL authored his classic treatise "Abuses of Socialism " to refute the slanders and abuse of socialism by the imperialists and world reactionaries following the counter-revolutions in some countries.
The work "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable " heralded a bold and decisive ideological counter-offensive against the slanders of the anti-socialist forces who took advantage of the frustration of socialism in some countries....
This work of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL gave fresh inspiration to the world revolutionary people aspiring for socialism whose hopes had been crushed by the modern revisionists betrayal of the socialist cause. It was and is a bright beacon for the revival of the world socialist movement.
The work "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable " is as relevant as when it was published 25 years ago. It is vital reading for Juche Idea followers and friends of People's Korea that should be read over and over again."
The secretary general of the JISGE and Chairman Staffordshire KFA said that that the work "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable " is a most profound work that stands the test of time .It shattered the myth that communism and fascism are the same . It is a most valuable work.Comrade Pickford said that the publication of the work was very timely as socialism had been frustrated in some countries but the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL raised high the red flag of socialism and rallied the socialist forces .
A Derbyshire UK KFA member said that he had read the book and it is absolutely spot on .It takes a stand against revisionism.He said that there was too much propaganda against socialism around and it is needed to be countered. Moreover the BBC having started broadcasting to the DPRK to infiltrate pro-revisionist , anti-communist and capitalist ideas into the DPRK with the aim of forcing it to 'open up' and 'reform' He said capitalist freedom means having 50 types of bread but poorest people can only afford one kind , the cheapest !
The UK KFA Commissar and member of JISGE said that the work " Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable " refutes the bourgeois idea of totalitarianism . KFA and JISGE would do well to use this work to refute anti DPRK,anti-socialist propaganda.He also said that the work refutes bourgeois propaganda about human rights and freedom .There is no freedom for the working masses under capitalism.The work also addressed the question of bureaucracy .
Dr Dermot Hudson then spoke about the work ""Let Us Hasten the Final Victory through a Revolutionary Ideological Offensive!" made by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN to the 8th Conference of the Ideological Workers in February 2014. Dr Hudson said that the work is a "a most powerful manifesto of KIMILSUNGISM-KIMJONGILISM. Moreover it shows the correct way to build socialism namely through ideological work rather than by certain other methods which have proved disastrous. The Korean revolution and People's Korea of Juche are marching forward under the glorious banner of the Red Flag whilst others have fallen by the wayside or even betrayed the cause of socialism. The work "Let Us Hasten Final Victory Through a Revolutionary Ideological Offensive" is just like an ideological nuclear deterrent which will blast away imperialism and capitalism.
Since the publication of the work "Let Us Hasten Final Victory Through a Revolutionary Ideological Offensive" the Korean revolution has steamed ahead at breakneck speed , a new Korean speed with miracles in construction bring wrought every day . The satellite of Juche has soared into the skies conquering space and the H bomb was tested sending shudders down the spines of the imperialists. New buildings such as Mirae Scientists' Street and Ryomyong Street have sprungup.
Today under the banner of great KIMILSUNGISM-KIMJONGILISM the Korean people are waging a fierce ideological offensive against the imperialists to defend socialism and build a powerful and thriving socialist country. The Korean people will smash the imperialist sanctions with the spirit of self-reliance and the self-development first idea .The people of the DPRK are firmly united around dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN and the Workers Party of Korea . They know no other leader and will resist all attempts at regime change by US imperialism and big power chauvinism .Led by dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the Korean people will be ever-victorious !
We recommend a deep study of the work"
Participants in the meeting praised the work and said that the Juche Idea is a universal idea. The UK KFA Commisar said that the DPRK is upholding socialism whereas other socialist countries are introducing a form of perestroika which is disastrous,
Participants in the meeting praised the works of KIM IL SUNG, KIM JONG IL and KIM JONG UN.
