Kim Jong Il's proposition that "The present era is an era of independence in which the popular masses have emerged as the master of their destiny and the master dominating the world" defines the characteristics of the present era as an era of independence in which the popular masses have made their appearance as the master of their destiny and the master dominating the world. It is of great theoretical and practical significance in the accomplishment of the global cause of independence.The theoretical part is highlighted in orange while the practical part is highlighted in green.
Rodong Sinmun says this in an article Monday, which reads in part:The population of North Korea is about 23 million. Who are all those "hundreds of millions" "advancing along the road of independence and Songun"?
This definition by Kim Jong Il is the most correct classic one based on a comprehensive analysis of the present world situation fundamentally different from the past period with the Juche-based viewpoint and stand.
The sophism of the imperialists who described the abnormal development in the form of the collapse of socialism in some countries in the late 1980s and the early 1990s of the last century as "bankruptcy of the cause of independence" and "end of socialism" was an anachronistic hokum of fools to deny hard historical reality and the law governing the development of humankind.
The present era is an era in which the idea of independence is winning and its main trend is characterized by Songun.
The popular masses are firmly standing in the center of the development of the history in the present era. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are advancing along the road of independence and Songun and they are playing an ever greater role in shaping the destiny of humankind and the future of the world. This is the essential features of the present era, which distinguishes it from the last era.
Nothing can block the trend of the historical development of the present era toward independence and Songun.I.e., uttering the bit about the popular masses emerging etc. was an "imperishable feats." Bet you didn't realize why "human history" was going so swimmingly!
It is imperishable feats of Kim Jong Il for the global cause of independence that he gave a scientific analysis and assessment of the characteristics of the present era and has vigorously spurred on the development of human history.
