Flower in Praise of the Great Man

In Juche 77 (1988) Kamo Mototeru, a Japanese horticulturist, who was fascinated by the great personality of Kim Jong Il, named the flower he bred with sincerity after his august name, Kimjongilia, and presented it to him.
Today Kimjongilia has become renowned flower that blooms in full in many countries and regions of the world. Kimjongilia greenhouses have been built in many parts of the world and the organizations for propagating the immortal flower are increasing in number. 

The Kimilsungia-Kimjongilia greenhouses and Kimjongilia greenhouses are found in many countries, including China and Indonesia, and the Nordic Kimjongilia Association was formed in Europe, the American Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia Association in the United States, and the Kimjongilia Amateur Association in Japan respectively. 
In particular, the Association of Supporters for Propagation of Kimilsungia and Kimjongilia comprising prominent persons of the world is an international organization with many branches formed in China, Japan, Indonesia, the US and other countries and regions to widely propagate the immortal flower.
Kimjongilia is recognized worldwide as a flower with rare beauty for its large, fascinating scarlet flower like the rising sun, glossy heart-shaped leaves, and stout and straight stalk.
The flower has been officially registered in the International Society for Horticultural Science as a new variety of Begoniaceae.

Fascist outrage against democracy

The Park Geun-hye regime forcibly dissolved the Unified Progressive Party of south Korea through a decision of the Constitutional Court and deprived five lawmakers from the party of their membership as the "National Assemblymen".

The UPP, founded in 2000 as the successor to the Democratic Workers’ Party, has launched a vigorous action for independence, democracy and national reunification in the van in accordance with intention and demand of the south Korean working people.    

Progressive democracy, independence and reunification, the UPP’s program, reflect the demand and intention of the broad segments of south Korean people. 

The Constitutional Court made the decision on the dissolution in just thirty minutes, charging that the program of the party is just like the "Juche idea and Juche concept of the north" and the "north's revolutionary strategy toward the south", and that its objective and activities are aimed to "realize progressive democracy by violence and to build socialism the way the north did in the end".

Now freedom of a political party is ensured in the world and leftist political parties are in full activity legally even in the western capitalist nations. Elementary political freedom and democratic right are seriously violated and a legal party was dissolved in south Korea in the 21st century. It is the greatest criminal act against democracy.  
The people from various fields and international human rights organizations denounce the dissolution, saying “it is a strangulation of democracy and human rights,” “Judicial slaughter of party democracy” and “Unimaginable political oppression in international community.” 

The dissolution is aimed to destroy the pro-reunification forces and check the opposition party’s power by branding the UPP as the pro-north Korean party. Meanwhile it is a sinister purpose of the Park regime to tide over ever-worsening ruling crisis.

With the dissolution, democracy met an end in south Korea and fruit of democracy gained by bloody struggle of the south Koreans turned to dust and ashes and south Korea turned into a notorious “Yushin” dictatorial age.

Now the south Koreans from all social standings, denouncing the dissolution of the UPP as an intolerable fascist outrage against democracy and human rights, turn out in the struggle to ostracize the Park regime.

Wise Teachings

Wise Teachings

President Kim Il Sung had a meeting with a delegation of the Revolutionary Party of Tanzania at the end of April of Juche 77 (1988).

The Revolutionary Party of Tanzania directed great efforts to strengthen the party in the face of “pluralism” that was in much vogue in Africa. The President, who grasped the actual circumstance of the party, told them the ways and methods of the party building. 

It is imperative to educate people in order to consolidate the party. If they are left without reeducation, their brains may be spoiled and become rusty, and in the long run they may degenerate. We help them rectify their defects, as they wash their faces every morning, said the President.

Nowadays, the parties of some countries are neglecting education. Consequently, those parties fail to strike root deep among the people. Only when the masses continually cultivate their minds through such education, can they remain ideologically sound and work faithfully with a revolutionary heart and attitude, the President stressed.

His teachings were precious one for the party building to be maintained not only by the Revolutionary Party of Tanzania but all parties of revolution.  

Like a Peach not Mango

One day of May, Juche 82 (1993), President Kim Il Sung met with a delegation of party from Africa that came to Pyongyang to learn the experience of building of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

At the talks, the members of the delegation referred to the President what is an ideal way of building a ruling party.

Holding a peach in his hand from the table, he said that a party should be built like a peach.

Pointing a finger at the peach, the revolution and construction would make good progress when the leader, party and the masses are united single-heartedly. The peach, figuratively speaking, the meat of it is likened to the masses, the seed the party and the core of seed the leader, the President noted. 

Unity without the nucleus is ineffective like a mango without seed, the President stated.

Understanding the meaning, the head of delegation said with joy, “Dear President, I will build the party like a peach of the DPRK when I go back home.”

One should take only that which suits one’s taste

One day of July Juche 74 (1985), President Kim Il Sung met and had a talk with a delegation of the communist party from Europe.

He affirmed their efforts to maintain independence and continued that as the revolution of each nation is carried out by their party, when introducing the experience of foreign parties, they assimilate only that which suits their tastes and reject that which do not, however good the experience may be. Figuratively speaking, even though someone offers a delicious biscuit, one should not take it if it does not suit one’s taste. If a person eats food which disagrees with him he may suffer indigestion or other illness.

The members of the delegation were deeply impressed with his greatness.

Great tradition and inheritance

With the passage of time, south Koreans highly extol the undying exploits of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who had defended the cause of socialism on the strength of arms of Songun and turned north Korea into an invincible bulwark. 

A professor in political science in Daejeon told his students that north Korea steadfastly defends its national dignity and sovereignty, crushing the US and its followers’ reckless war maneuvers against north Korea, and went on:    

Washington has made desperate efforts to fulfill its ambition for world domination, regarding north Korea as a thorn in its flesh, however, it is little short of a pipedream.

In north Korea, there is a powerful capability enough to meet threat and challenge of any aggressive forces. That is the Songun politics.

The Songun politics is the spiritual sword. With it north Korea gains ascendancy over the US to protect the dignity of the country and nation.    

The foundation of Songun politics is the ideology of giving precedence to arms, in a word, the slogan “Weapons are our life and soul! Oppose armed force with armed force!” put forth by Kim Il Sung in the incipiency of the anti-Japanese armed struggle. Chairman Kim Jong Il defined Songun politics as the main mode of socialism, leading the fiercer DPRK-US showdown to victory, a pro-reunification movement group posted the above-said article on its website. 

Kim Jong Il started his Songun-based leadership by inspecting the Seoul Ryu Kyong Su 105 Guards Tank Division of the KPA on August 25, 1960. It was of great significance for the development of the revolutionary armed forces of north Korea and the accomplishment of the Juche revolutionary cause, pundits of a think tank asserted.    

Based on the Juche idea, Kim Jong Il enriched President Kim Il Sung’s idea of giving priority to arms into the Songun idea. On the condition that imperialism has put military pressure upon progressive humankind, the Chairman strengthened the army, the main force of the revolution, and opened a bright vista for socialism by putting forward the army armed with politically and ideologically, a member of the National Alliance for Democracy and Reunification said.

The South Headquarters of the Pan-national Alliance of Youth and Students for the Korea’s Reunification in an article on its website stressed that thanks to Songun politics of the illustrious commander, the Korean nation became the dignified one in the world and a lecturer in Seoul stated it was a marvelous event that north Korea launched an application satellite by its own efforts and with indigenous technology.

Chairman Kim Jong Il humbled the US, behaving as if it were master of the world, to the dust. Uncle Sam has frightened north Korea into submission through economic blockade and military pressure, however, the US could not but come to the negotiating table, holding a white flag, for fear of north Korea’s war deterrence. The Chairman’s option for Songun politics was uncommon, the south Korean mass media including Jajuminbo and Tongil News commented.  

The south Korean people are positive about that having Kim Jong Un who takes the road of independence, Songun and socialism, history of peerless great persons of Mt. Paektu will go down and the cause of national reunification and the building of a socialist prosperous nation will be surely achieved.   

Today the world attention is focused on DPRK supreme leader Kim Jong Un. It is the unanimous view of the critics within and without that Kim Jong Un would administer the politics based on Songun idea and method of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, an online media stressed. 

An expert on north Korea noted that supreme leader Kim Jong Un, true to the instructions of Chairman Kim Jong Il, would leave remarkable trace by dint of Songun politics by directing big efforts into the building of an economic power. 

A researcher of the studies of political affairs said the Songun cause that has been started in the bloody war against Japan is being carried forward successfully. 

The broad segments of people have set up websites introducing the greatness of Kim Jong Un in succession and posted articles and videos titled “Great tradition and inheritance” and “Rosy future of north Korea led by supreme leader Kim Jong Un” on them.

Chairman Kim Jong Il’s ideology and political creed will be inherited by supreme leader Kim Jong Un to the last, a researcher at a social institution assured.

As supreme leader Kim Jong Un leads the DPRK, the future of the Korean nation is bright and the dawn of a reunified and prosperous country desired by Chairman Kim Jong Il will come true, a south Korean Internet paper Surprise stressed.

Unequaled patriot who preserved national character

South Korean people extol Chairman Kim Jong Il, who defended and glorified character of the Korean nation, to the skies.

An intellectual in Daegu spoke highly of north Korea where national culture and tradition are lively and went on:

In north Korea, Mausoleum of King Dangun, the father of the Korean nation, and Mausoleum of King Dongmyong, the founder of the Goguryeo dynasty, have been reconstructed splendidly and forefather’s remains are well preserved. Speaking of architecture, it has a style peculiar to the Korean nation and reflects national spirit. National customs are greatly encouraged by the state policy and the literature and art are developing according to a modern aesthetic sense on the basis of national tradition.

I witnessed the spirit of the Korean nation in Pyongyang.  

However, the lineage of homogeneous nation has been blurred by the influence of Yankee-style culture and Japanese customs and the tradition of national culture fades away in south Korea. 

North Korea has admirable heredity and culture of the nation, specific taste and aroma, a person living in Gwangju said after he had visited Pyongyang.  

A professor of historical science stated that north Korea adorned modern history of the nation brilliant with the august name of the sun with glory and corrected the distorted national history. He was deeply impressed by north Korea’s strenuous efforts and sincere approach towards preservation of national character.

Gay folk song, folk dance of north Korea are graceful and dignified, evoking national feeling. The art of north Korea has a vivid Juche character and national character and it is a genuine art with the soul of national independence, a literary man noted. 

A journalist in Seoul affirmed that good preservation of cultural heritage alive with the national spirit is attributable to fruition of judicious leadership of Chairman Kim Jong Il. 

He continued that Kim Jong Il protected the national soul and Juche character in the face of highhanded policy of the imperialists with his unique Songun-based leadership when some nations gave up socialism by the influence of “globalization” and sold off their national dignity for the sake of money. Thanks to him, national dignity of today is guaranteed and rosy future of the nation is in state.

A university professor in Busan told his friends, listening to north Korean song “My Country Is Best” with them.

The song greatly impresses me with the national pride and self-confidence.

The song awakens the south Korean people to value their own things and live in their senses as the national spirit dwindles away in south Korea by domination and cultural poisoning of the foreign forces.

The song deals a blow at the political climate of south Korea in which national nihilism and flunkeyism are rampant.

Thanks to leadership of Kim Jong Il, good conception of national excellence and their own way is ubiquitous in north Korea and national heritage could be well preserved.   

A member of the National Arts Institution of south Korea said north Korea is the land alive with inherent and excellent heritage of the Korean nation.

I got the true meaning of motherland through the marvelous reality of north Korea. North Korea, the homeland of Juche the world people are envious of and a bulwark of independence, is a genuine motherland, a cradle of happiness and great bosom that the nation entrusts their destiny to it, a freelancer asserted.

Most reasonable and immortal program

South Koreans expressed their ardent yearning and boundless reverence for President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who had put their hearts and souls into the country’s reunification all their lives. 

They highly praise the President and the Chairman, who set forth policies of national reunification to provide a solid foundation for realizing the cause of independent reunification, as the eternal sun of the nation and the lodestar of reunification.     

A member of pro-reunification group said at a gathering that all the proposals for reunification advanced by the President are patriotic, fair and aboveboard reunification formulas and went on: 

 “The three principles of independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity advanced by President Kim Il Sung are basic principle of reunification and fair and aboveboard program of reunification he maintained consistently. He, who had put forward the nation above ideology and dedicated his whole life to reunification and prosperity of the nation, attached his name to a document related to national reunification.”

Sympathizing with his statement, his associates noted that the President set forth the three principles of national reunification easy to soluble, reflecting requirement, intention and interests of the nation for reunification. It is a shining exploits to be recorded in history of movement for reunification of the nation.  

A professor at Seoul National University said at a forum on the current situation that the three charters for national reunification are the eternal banner of national reunification and continued:

“The reunification programs including the three principles of national reunification, the ten-point program of the great unity of the whole nation and proposal for founding a Democratic Federal Republic of Koryo are a blueprint underpinning scientific feasibility, not a mere ideal of general goal of national reunification and the future of a reunified nation. It is by no means fortuitous that the broad segments of south Koreans highly speak of the three charters for national reunification as a torch of national reunification as it clarifies all methods to be raised in the process of reunification, irrespective of differing ideology, religious belief and social system, and promotes interests common to the nation. ”

The south Koreans ardently eulogize Chairman Kim Jong Il, who worked heart and soul to indicate the way ahead of national reunification with his unwavering will to carry out the President’s instructions for reunification from A to Z, as the eternal father of the Korean nation. 

A professor in Busan told his students said that outstanding idea and theory of Chairman Kim Jong Il indicates the bright future of the Korean nation and went on:

“In the course of studying the idea and theory of Chairman Kim Jong Il on national reunification, I have felt on the pulse that his policy of national reunification is running through with the thought of national independence and all his speculation and activity are based on patriotism.  

A student stated his excited feeling after reading historic works of Kim Jong Il on national reunification:

“His works breathed his high sense of reunification and inflexible will and ardent patriotism to achieve national reunification and gain prosperity of a reunified nation. National reunification will be surely realized when the Korean nation supports his policy of reunification.”

The Korean nation’s movement for national reunification is making a steady progress in defiance of vicious moves of the anti-reunification forces within and without. Because the idea of great national unity of Kim Jong Il and inter-Korean declarations lighten the way ahead of the movement for reunification, a member of pro-reunification group said.

WPK into ever-victorious one

Kim Jong Il, eternal General Secretary of the WPK

WPK into ever-victorious one

It has been seventeen years since Chairman Kim Jong Il was elected General Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea on October 8, 1997.

The election of Kim Jong Il as general secretary of the WPK marked a political event of particular significance in the development of the WPK and the Korean revolution and a great auspicious event of the nation as it powerfully demonstrated the might of harmonious whole between the leader and the people.

Kim Jong Il developed the WPK to be an organizer and guide of all victories of the Korean people and steered the revolution and construction along the road of one victory after another with his outstanding idea and tested leadership for over half a century, performing immortal exploits on behalf of the country and its people, the times and history.

Kim Jong Il built up the whole party into the vanguard ranks of the Songun revolution which breathe and act, guided by the idea and intention of the leader, and made sure that the party strengthened the blood ties with the masses and looked after the destiny of the people in a responsible manner, thereby enabling the party to take on the perfect looks of the party of President Kim Il Sung.

It was the distinguished feat performed by Kim Jong Il in the party building that he led the WPK to consistently adhere to the revolutionary principles.

Kim Jong Il led the WPK to steadfastly advance along the road of socialism without the slightest vacillation late in the last century when the DPRK faced the worst trial.

He formulated the unique Songun politics as a main political mode under socialism and thoroughly embodied it, protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the country and socialism and making a great contribution to the global peace and security.

The WPK is a revolutionary party firmly based on the leader's ideological system and leadership system, a mother party serving the people after forming harmonious whole with them and an invincible party having a strong political and military groundwork. This is the true picture of the WPK that has grown strong under his leadership.

His idea and cause of the Juche-oriented party building have been carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un at a new higher level.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un has held Kim Jong Il in high esteem as eternal general secretary of the WPK and developed it into the glorious Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il's party.

Kim Jong Un formulated Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism as the eternal guiding idea for the party and revolution through his brilliant ideological and theoretical activities and proclaimed the modeling of the whole society on it as the supreme program of the party. This is the great achievement that provides a sure guarantee for the development of the WPK and the final accomplishment of the revolutionary cause of Juche.

The history of the WPK is marked by a glorious path along which the party has developed into an ever-victorious revolutionary one upholding the banner of the Juche idea under the leadership of the great leaders, and a sacred chronicle in which it led the army and people of the DPRK to victory through the creation of epoch-making changes and miracles.

A turn was made in the efforts to build an economic power and improve the people's living standard and a new history of building a highly civilized socialist country was ushered in under the leadership of the party.

Immensely rosy is the future of the Korean revolution as it is dynamically advancing, flying the flag of the Juche-oriented party led by Kim Jong Un generation after generation, holding Kim Jong Il in high esteem as eternal general secretary of the WPK.
