The Association For the Study of Songun Poltics UK (ASSPUK) and the British Group for the Study of the Juche Idea issued a joint statement on 6th anniversary of the work "The Cause of the Great Party of Comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il Is Ever-Victorious" by the dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN which had originally been published to mark the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the Workers' Party of Korea :
Yesterday (4th of October ) it was six yaers since the publiction of "The Cause of the Great Party of Comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il Is Ever-Victorious . In the work dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN defines the cause of the WPK in a new original way which is fully consistent with the Juche idea and the Juche theory of party building
"The cause of the WPK is a sacred historic cause for fully realizing the independence of the masses of the people, the cause of the Juche revolution."
The history of the WPK is one of proud victories which show the durablity and invincible nature of the party of the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL . Dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN with true intellectual sharpness and perspicacity clarifies that
"success in the revolution and construction depends on how a party, the General Staff of the revolution, is built and on how its leadership role is enhanced"
Such words are full of truth and wisdom .It is very important in all stages of the revolutionary struggle to correctly build the party which is the general staff of the revolution . It is vital to enhance the leadership role , if this is not done properly or if it is neglected then it will ultimately lead to the frustration of socialism .This was the case in the former Soviet Union and former socialist countries where under the banner of liberalisation the leading role of the party was systematically undermined and downgraded culminating in perestroika and glasnost which caused the collapse of socialism.
Under the leadership of great comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL the WPK solved central issues in party building such as achieving the oneness of ideology in the party ranks and unity of thought and action
The dear respected leader Marshal KIM JONG UN clarifies the achivements of President KIM IL SUNG and chairman KIM JONG IL in party building. Firstly, that President KIM IL SUNG made the WPK a mass party so that is struck deep roots amongst the masses and formed an integral whole with them.Chairman KIM JONG IL ensured that the WPK became the motherly party taking care of the lives of the people.
The road followed by the WPK was not an easy one , it had to face numerous trials and attempts to block its line of march as dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN points out : " The course of its leading the cause of the Juche revolution, the cause of socialism, has been an acute and serious political and class struggle against imperialism, dominationism, revisionism, worship of big powers and dogmatism, and a hard struggle of hewing out an untrodden path to build a genuine, new society for the people." Nevertheless the WPK guided by the great leaders comrades KIM IL SUNG and KIM JONG IL became the steel strong party of the Juche revolution and the Songun revolution . It blazed a trail resplendent with many great achievements in all fields such as the economy and defence upbuilding.
Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN puts forward a number of key tasks for furthering increasing the leadership role of the WPK and bringing to completion the Juche revolutionary cause started on Mt Paektu. He says that the WPK must carry forward the lines and traditions of the WPK. The Party must be people orientated and oppose bureaucratism. The WPK must carry out the line of thethree revolutions. Dear respected Marshal KIM JONG UN issues a stern but deeply perceptive warning against the imperialists and capitalists who are trying to trick the Korean people and blow the Korean revolution off course , on to the rocks saying that:
" We must keep a watchful eye over all sorts of moves by the enemy to undermine our socialist system from within, approach these moves with political awareness and never allow any poisonous weeds of capitalism, however trifling, to sprout in the garden of socialism. The whole country should strive to do away with outmoded morality and way of life and give fullest play to the beautiful traits of a large socialist family that is sound and harmonious and in which all the people help and lead one another forward."
This contains a the beautiful formulation 'the garden of socialism' and is a decisive rebuff to all enemies , open and hidden, of Korean style socialism who work overtly and covertly to bring down the socialist system of the DPRK.
Although six years have passed since the publication of "The Cause of the Great Party of Comrades Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il Is Ever-Victorious" , it remains as valid as ever because it is an excellent summation of the cause of Juche party building and an important guideline .We recommend that Juche idea and Songun idea followers should study this important work.
