London 1st of November Juche 107(2018)
The Association for the Study of Songun Politics UK and the Juche Idea Study Group of England today issued a joint statement on the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the publication of the work "Socialism Is A Science" by the great leader generalissimo KIM JONG IL;
On the 1st of November it will be 20 years since the publication of the work "Socialism Is A Science " by the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL . It can be said without any hint of exaggeration nor fear of contradiction that this was the most important piece of writing on socialism published in the last part of the 20th century and that the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL was the only leader of a socialist country and leader in the international communist movement to tackle the question of defending and expounding the scientific nature of socialism and its inevitability. Marx, Engels and Lenin had turned socialism from a Utopian dream into a science. However towards during the late 1980s and early 1990s a series of abnormal events took place namely the frustration of socialism in a number of countries owing to the conspiracy and intrigue of the modern revisionists the agents of imperialism with the socialist camp and international communist movement. As the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL wrote:"The crumbling of socialism in various countries does not mean the failure of socialism as science but the bankruptcy of opportunism which has corrupted socialism. Although socialism is temporarily experiencing a heartrending setback because of opportunism, it will without fail be revived and win ultimate victory for its scientific accuracy and truth".
This was a timely rebuff to the imperialists and reactionaries who taking advantage of the abnormal developments made extremely false and slanderous assertions that 'socialism had failed' and socialism was in some way "unscientific " or 'infeasible'.
The work was an unparalleled inspiration to the world revolutionary peoples looking for answer in the difficult international situation caused by the frustration of socialism in some countries . It was a real shot in the arm, a tonic for the international communist movement.
Eternal Chairman KIM JONG IL smashes sophistries about 'class co-operation ' advocated by reformists and revisionists explaining that : "The exploiter class and their stooges put forward the "theory of class cooperation" and tried to block the struggle of the exploited working masses against exploitation and oppression. Within the communist movement, reformists and revisionists demanded "class cooperation" and seriously harmed the revolutionary movement, Today, traitors to socialism are also clamoring for a return to capitalism, harboring illusions about capitalism and expecting "aid" and "cooperation" from the imperialists. History shows that to expect "good will" or "class cooperation" from the exploiter class is to make a mess of the revolution."
This was a telling blow to the theories collaborating with imperialism and given up class struggle. In some capitalist countries reformists and traitors advocated "social partnership " , compromise with the exploiting class but the teachings of comrade KIM JONG IL in "Socialism In A Science " demonstrates that such ideas are fallacious . All those who aspire for socialism and who are active in the labour movement should take to heart this teaching of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL and uphold like a red torch. Today under the leadership of dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN the DPRK is upholding self-reliance and self-development.
Moreover in the work "Socialism Is A Science " the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL showed that socialism is the banner of independence for the popular masses and the means for the popular masses including the working class to realise their independence, to become masters of their destiny. Thus leader KIM JONG IL defined socialism in a fresh way free from any dogmatic interpretations.
"Socialism Is A Science " proved the accuracy and validity of the socialist idea. It fully demonstrated the scientific nature of socialism and inevitability of its victory . At the time its publication it served a beacon or lighthouse for the socialist ,communists and progressives of the world groping in the darkness caused by the frustration of socialism . "Socialism Is A Science " was the second "Communist Manifesto". It showed the true genius of the comrade KIM JONG IL as a great theorist and ideologist .
There is no doubt that "Socialism Is A Science " is as relevant and valid today as it was 20 years ago. It charts the way ahead for the world socialist movement . Without hesitation we recommend a deep study of this work to the progressive and revolutionary people of the UK and the world,
