President Kim Il Sung remembered for his independent politics

Date: 08/07/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

It has been 26 years since President Kim Il Sung passed away.

But no Korean people have ever thought that he left this world.

Because everyone can see everywhere the beaming image of the President who always gave them a broad smile, everything he did for them continues to be done and everything he wanted to do for them is being done one after another.

Born as a son of working people in a thatched house with low-angle rafters, Kim Il Sung consistently administered independent politics in the arduous revolutionary struggle for Korea’s liberation, class emancipation and different stages of social revolution.

As he regarded independence as the lifeblood of the country and nation, he resolved all issues to meet the demands of his people and the specific conditions of his country.

Having set out on the road of national liberation in his early teens to win back the independence of Korea from the Japanese imperialists, he put forward the principle of the Juche idea that the master of one’s destiny is oneself and one has the ability to shape it, and achieved the historic cause of the country’s liberation by waging the anti-Japanese armed struggle under the uplifted banner of independence.

After liberation, as he charted the course of building new society, he indicated the road of progressive democracy that suited Korea’s specific conditions, maintained independent and creative stands in nation building from A to Z while opposing the dependence on and subordination to other countries and founded the Party, state and army from the standpoint of Juche.

Under his wise leadership, the Workers’ Party of Korea was developed into an invincible party in which the uniformity and continuity of ideology and leadership were fully ensured and which formed an integral whole with the masses of the people, the DPRK government was strengthened into the representative of their independent rights, the organizer of their creative abilities and activities, the householder in charge of their living and the defender of their interests, and the revolutionary armed forces grew up to be a powerful army which was boundlessly faithful to the Party’s ideas and cause and which achieved a-match-for-a-hundred fighting efficiency.

As he categorically rejected all manner of challenges, pressure and interference by the imperialists, he provided solid foundations of self-sufficiency and self-reliance and development potentials which would enable Korean socialism to advance victoriously.

He always adhered to the independent stand no matter how the international situation changed and no matter what tendency was created in the world socialist movement and staunchly championed the fundamental interests of the revolution making no concession as to the matters relating to the destiny of his country and people.

It is the unanimous will of the Korean people to add eternal brilliance to his revolutionary ideas and cause and build a powerful socialist country of Juche on this land.
