(North) Korean News: "Rodong Sinmun on Desire of Humankind for Socialism"

Never before has so much failure generated so much triumphalism:
It is the law governing the development of history that capitalism goes to ruin and socialism emerges victorious and no force on earth can reverse the direction of the development of history towards socialism.

Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article observes this.

It goes on:

There were difficulties in the way of advancing socialism owing to the abnormal political development toward the close of the last century, but socialism did not come to an "end" as the imperialists claimed but has made victorious progress, enshrined in the hearts of the people.

At a time when the imperialists and the renegades of socialism made desperate efforts to destroy socialism dozens of political parties of the world met in Pyongyang and adopted the Pyongyang Declaration "Let Us Defend and Advance the Cause of Socialism" signed by them, stunning the world.

The victorious advance of the socialist cause in the DPRK signifies a striking demonstration of the truth, validity and invincibility of socialism.

The People's Army and the people of the DPRK, true to the great Songun politics of the Workers' Party of Korea, have turned out as one to mercilessly smash the moves of the imperialists for a war of aggression, bolster the military power of the country and firmly consolidate the socialist position. The reality of the DPRK reinforced the world people's faith in the victory of socialism.

It is the law governing the development of history that the new is sure to triumph in the struggle against the old.

Socialism fundamentally differs from capitalism.

Capitalism is an unpopular exploiting society, an unequal society where the privileged have power in hands and get richer by exploiting the toiling people who account for the majority of the population.

Socialism is incomparably advantageous to capitalism. In socialist society, the people are politically stable and lead a worthwhile and happy life, having sound thinking and mentality and culture.

In the DPRK, the people have become the master of the country and society and lead a happy life on an equal footing, exercising all their rights. The DPRK is the only country in the world where people are guaranteed all rights ranging from the right to work to the right to food, clothing and housing and the right to study and receive medical care.

The "advantages" of capitalism much touted by the imperialists and the reactionaries are nothing but sophism to cover up the reactionary and corrupt nature and vulnerability of the capitalist system.
