Self-reliance and Self-development Is Way to Prosperity: Rodong Sinmun

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in an article that there are countries which make efforts to tide over the difficulties and bolster up the national power by their own efforts, while some countries are keen to achieve prosperity by relying on others.

The immutable truth taught by the historical experience and lesson is that self-reliance and self-development is the way to prosperity and dependence on foreign forces is the way to national ruin, the article says and goes on:

What is important in achieving complete independence and sovereignty, prosperity and development is to have an attitude of doing everything by one's own efforts. No one can accomplish the cause of building an independent and powerful state by depending on others.

The only way of living for the countries aspiring after independence and progress is to build up their own strength and solve everything by relying on it in the spirit of regarding their own things and self-development as the best.

Only when we believe in our own strength and push forward with the lines and policies determined by us to the last with fixed principle, we can overcome manifold socio-economic difficulties and break through the imperialists’ pressure.

The history of Korean-style socialism is the history in which it has been pioneered and advanced victoriously with self-reliance and self-development. We have built a socialist state independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence by our own way of struggle and creation, relying on our own efforts, technology and resources, without depending on others.

It is the steadfast will and faith of the Korean people to build a prosperous socialist power on this land without fail by dint of self-reliance and self-development.
