Today the Korean people are vigorously promoting the work for accomplishing the socialist cause by strictly adhering to the ideas and principles of State building elucidated by the great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.
The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building contain in a concentrated way the ideas of, and exploits in, State building of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who developed the DPRK into the prestigious and strong socialist State; these ideas also indicate clearly the ways and means for accomplishing the socialist cause with the State government as a political weapon.
Kim Il Sung advanced the original line of building a people’s government based on the immortal Juche idea and created the precious tradition of building a government in the flames of the anti-Japanese armed struggle. He solved all the problems arising in realizing the cause of State building even in the difficult circumstances after Korea’s liberation on August 1945, in conformity with the people’s demands for independence and their interests and by relying on their strength. He is the founding father of socialist Korea who built the people-centred socialist State by fully embodying the idea of believing in the people as in heaven in State building and activities.
His Juche-oriented ideas of and exploits in State building were brilliantly carried forward by Kim Jong Il. With his firm pledge to glorify Korea true to Kim Il Sung’s great ideas in his early years, Kim Jong Il devoted himself to building the DPRK into a socialist State with invincible might. Shouldering the heavy burden of building a socialist power, he made an endless journey of super-intense forced march, taking not a moment’s rest, in order to lay the powerful political, military and economic foundations for achieving the eternal prosperity of the nation. Even in such trying periods as the Arduous March, he defended the dignity and sovereignty of the country and the nation by solving all the problems of State building and activities in Korean style and led socialist construction to victory, demonstrating to the whole world the mettle and strength of the DPRK.
The geopolitical position of Korea is the same as ever, but the country has made remarkable progress and eye-opening changes in such a short period of history. These achievements are inconceivable apart from the great leaders’ exploits in State building.
The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building clarify that the revolutionary line of independence should be carried out in State building and activities, that the people-first principle be applied to the letter in all aspects of State activities and social life and that Party leadership over the overall affairs of the State be provided in every way possible.
The DPRK raised independence as the life of the Korean revolution and the fundamental cornerstone for State building and has advanced the revolution and construction in its own way while categorically rejecting worship of big countries, dogmatism and the high-handedness and pressure by outside forces. As a result, it has been built and developed to be a socialist State, independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, and it is still demonstrating to the world its prestige and might as a powerful independent country. Holding fast to the revolutionary line of independence in State building and activities is the consistent and immutable stand of the DPRK.
The DPRK has thoroughly applied the people-first principle to the letter in all aspects of State activities and social life. With a view to carrying forward and holding up the ennobling ideas and intentions of the great leaders who believed in the people as in heaven and devoted their lives to their interests, the government defined the essence of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the guiding ideology of the Korean revolution, as the people-first principle and set it as the greatest priority to apply the Juche-oriented view on the people, a people-oriented philosophy, in the activities of the Party and the State.
The DPRK has satisfactorily effected unified leadership over the State and society by relying on the revolutionary guiding ideology and scientific strategy and tactics advanced by the Workers’ Party of Korea, thereby performing its missions of representing the rights of the masses of the people to independence, organizing their creative abilities and activities, taking care of their lives and protecting their interests.
The great Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist ideas of State building serve as an inspiring banner to add eternal brilliance to the DPRK as the State of the great leaders and build it as an independent powerful State that no one can dare provoke, a people’s State in which the people’s ideals are fully realized and a country that advances by giving full scope to its unlimited potential for development.
