Bourgeois Democracy Is Phony: Rodong Sinmun

Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- The imperialists and reactionaries persistently tout "democracy" in capitalist society and "advantages" of bourgeois democracy, but it is sophism to cover up the reactionary and unpopular nature of the bourgeois dictatorship and the true colors of capitalist society going downhill, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article.
Bourgeois democracy, "democracy" in capitalist society, is not a genuine one, the article says, and goes on:
Democracy is politics which comprehends the will of the working popular masses. It is just democracy that a state makes policies in accordance with the will of workers, peasants and broad working people, implements them in their interests and substantially provides the popular masses with genuine freedom and rights and a happy life.
Capitalism is a society where a tiny minority of exploiting classes holding privileged status rules a majority. Regime and means of production are gripped by the exploiting classes and all the state policies are under their control. It is obvious that "democracy" in capitalist society can't be the one for the popular masses.
Bourgeois democracy is for a minority of privileged circle and it is not democracy in the original meaning.
If democracy exists in capitalist society, it is just "democracy" for the good of the rich and a minority of the exploiting classes.
No matter how hard the imperialists wag their tongue to hurt socialist democracy, they can never sweep the unpopular nature of the bourgeois democracy and the corrupt nature of the capitalist system under the carpet. -
