The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL was able to contribute his great theoretical and and ideological wisdom and clairvoyant expertise to the work of leading the Workers' Party of Korea. Whilst still at university he wrote brilliant works such as "The characteristics of Modern Imperialism and its aggressive nature" and many other works.
Under the leadership of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL the Juche revolutionary cause, started by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG was brilliantly carried forward.He built up the WPK powerfully as a monolithic party based on the Juche idea, the idea of comrade KIM IL SUNG .He achieved complete oneness and unity of the party. Comrade KIM JONG IL resolutely smashed the anti party counter- revolutionary factionalists who attempted to undermine the party's unity and blot out the proud revolutionary traditions of the Workers Party of Korea.The cancers of revisionism , opportunism and other alien ideologies were not allowed to penetrate into the WPK.
The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL built up the WPK as the party of the great leader comrade KIM IL SUNG. Eternal general secretary comrade KIM JONG IL said that "The Workers’ Party of Korea will shine for ever as the Party of Comrade Kim Il Sung"
In all fields- economy, culture,science and defence great victories were scored and a stunning leap forward in the building of Juche socialism took place. The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL wrote works of genius such as "On the Art of the Cinema " which expounded the seed theory .
The great leader comrade KIM JONG IL fully embodied the idea "The People are my God" of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG and fully put into the practice the precept of the Mother party. He adopted a modest and popular style of work and fully developed the people orientated polices on such as the abolition of taxation ,free health care, free education and low-cost housing . The WPK maintained firm independence and enhanced, comrade KIM JONG IL in his classic work "Let Us Increase the Party's Fighting Efficiency and bring about a fresh turn in the building of socialism " put forward the great slogan "Let Us Live our own way!". The WPK became known throughout the world ,both by friend and foe, as a party that maintained stout independence in all its activities as well as a firm anti-imperialist revolutionary line.
Thanks to the powerful leadership of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL the WPK was built into a strong independent Juche- orientated party which withstood the challenges of the imperialists and raging storms of anti-socialism and continued along the socialist road when others threw away the Red flag. Comrade KIM JONG IL rebuked the imperialists and revisionists and rebuffed their challenges by authoring such excellent such as "Giving Priority to Ideological Work is essential for accomplishing socialism " in which he declared that "The most serious lesson of the collapse of socialism in several countries is that the corruption of socialism begins with ideological corruption, and that a break-down on the ideological front results in the crumbling of all socialism’s fronts and ends in the total ruin of socialism."
The several decades of leadership over the WPK, the supreme general staff of the Korean revolution , were indeed decades of victory and glory .The Korean people uphold the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL as the eternal General secretary of the WPK . Today the great achievements in Juche party building made by the eternal general secretary KIM JONG IL are actively carried forward by the dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN under the banner of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism and in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.
