Road of Juche Is Ever-victorious Path

Date: 30/06/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

The one and only weapon for the Korean revolution, which started from nothing, was the Juche idea, a great revolutionary ideology.

Ninety years ago, President Kim Il Sung created the Juche idea, which elucidates that the masses of the people are the masters of the revolution and construction and they have the strength with which to propel the revolution and construction.

He grew up experiencing the sorrow of a ruined nation trampled upon by foreign forces in the days when Korea was under the military occupation of the Japanese imperialists (1905-1945). He embarked on the road of revolution in his early years with a determination and ambition to crush the Japanese imperialists and achieve Korea’s independence.

To overthrow Japanese imperialism meant to defeat the military power of Japan, which had received universal recognition. It meant to overpower the fanatical Japanese spirit and to emerge victorious in a war of attrition against Japan, a country which had been accumulating manpower, materials and financial power for nearly 70 years since the Meiji Restoration.

Kim Il Sung, with firm confidence in the truth that the cause of justice is sure to emerge victorious, believed in the strength of the Korean people.

“We believe in the strength of the masses alone. Let us believe in the strength of our 20 million people and, uniting them, let us wage a bloody war against the Japanese imperialists!” This idea and standpoint he had cherished was reflected in “The Path of the Korean Revolution” he made public at the meeting of leading cadres of the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League held at Kalun from June 30 to July 2, 1930.

The Koreans are the masters of the Korean revolution and the Korean revolution, to all intents and purposes, must be carried out by the Koreans themselves in conformity with the specific situation of their country. This has become the line of the Korean revolution and its guiding idea.

The Korean people, under the banner of Juche, finally accomplished the historic cause of national liberation by launching the arduous anti-Japanese armed struggle.

When some countries doubted how Korea could build a country after its liberation on August 15, 1945, the Korean people built a new democratic Korea by their own strength. And when the imperialists claimed that Korea would not be able to rise to its feet again even in a hundred years after the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953), they carried out in a few years the postwar rehabilitation by their own efforts.

They solved all the problems arising in the revolution and construction according to their decision and will, in keeping with the specific conditions and interests of their country and on the principle of self-reliance. They firmly adhered to the principle of Juche and the stand of independence in all fields.

When the great-power chauvinists demanded their entry into the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance (CMEA), clamouring for an “integrated economy,” they built an independent national economy with the attitude that they should live on their own from A to Z. The slogan “Let us live our own way!” represents their will. It was reflected in all lines put forward in the annals of the developing Korean revolution: the basic line of socialist economic construction on giving priority to the growth of heavy industry while developing light industry and agriculture simultaneously, the line of three revolutions—ideological, technological and cultural, the self-defensive military line the main content of which was to turn the entire army into a cadre army, modernize it, arm all the people and fortify the whole country, etc.

In the mid-1990s, the destiny of their country and nation was at stake due to the imperialists’ schemes to isolate and stifle them and the continuous natural disasters. Even under such worst conditions, they firmly defended socialism, their lifeblood, and built up the foundations of their self-supporting economy, holding aloft the banner of Songun.

Still today, the hostile forces remain unchanged in their schemes to isolate and stifle the DPRK. But, the Korean people, who have learned to live on their own in the protracted, harsh environment, cherish self-reliance and self-sufficiency as their unshakeable faith. Self-reliance, which is regarded as the creative attitude and one of national social practices in the DPRK, has enabled them to raise their national self-reliant defence capability onto the highest level and push ahead with the drive to put the national economy on a Juche-oriented, modern, IT-based and scientific footing. They created a new history of “gold mountains”, “gold fields” and “gold seas” and a legendary speed of construction, thus translating their dreams and ideals into brilliant reality.

Cherishing the Juche idea as the ever-victorious banner, the Korean people are dynamically stepping up the drive to build a powerful socialist nation.
