Juche Is Patriotism and Vice Versa: Rodong Sinmun
Pyongyang, September 30 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Saturday in an article says that the Juche idea is the men-centered philosophical world outlook that man is the master of everything and decides everything. It is the idea of love for the people, valuing and loving them infinitely, as well as the patriotic idea to regard and glorify the independence of the country and dignity of the nation as life and achieve the prosperity of the country, the article says, and goes on:

Juche is the banner of patriotism enabling the people to defend the sovereignty of the country and the dignity of the nation by their own efforts and a powerful treasured sword for the independent development of the country and prosperity of the nation.

The DPRK is not only the country of the Juche idea but also the world's first ideological power which has brought about great changes in the historic struggle for remodeling nature, society and human beings as required by the Juche idea.

Thanks to the Juche idea, great successes that we can be proud of calling them ours could be made one after another in all fields of the revolution and construction and the Korean people, who regarded the destiny of a weak and small country as their fate, could rise up towards the world with confidence and courage.

The truth that Juche is patriotism and vice versa is more clearly proved in the advance of the new century of Juche.

The past 10-odd-year-long course of the revolutionary struggle advanced under the guidance of the respected General Secretary Kim Jong Un is an epitome showing how the dignity, victory, glory and happiness of the DPRK are defended and glorified.

The era of our state-first principle is a new era of self-respect and prosperity which is making steady progress and making a leap forward thanks to the patriots who cherish the independent dignity as their life.

Our patriotism is not merely to love the country, but to make everything in our country world-level things and add luster to them.

The Korean revolution, which was pioneered and has advanced and won victories under the banner of Juche, will bring about epochal changes and hasten the future of communism by dint of the truth of the Juche idea.
