"Full Display of Mental Power Called for"

As an article we flagged in January observed, "The Korean people are proud to have the strong mental power peculiar to them." Now, it is time to give it full play:
The present general advance is that based on ideology, and a great revolutionary offensive should be launched on the ideological front to give full play to the inexhaustible mental power of the army and the people.

Rodong Sinmun says this in a signed article on Friday. The present general advance is mainly characterized by the advance of ideology that makes it possible to bring about historic turn in building a prosperous and powerful nation by giving vent to the great mental power of the army and people like the erupting volcano. That is why it has inexhaustible might, the article notes, and goes on:

It is the revolutionary advance fully demonstrating the might of our single-minded unity in which the army and people are closely rallied around the headquarters of revolution with the same idea and purpose.

It is the greatest pride of our party and revolution that the harmonious whole of the leader and the people and the spirit of the great unity have been creditably carried forward to prevail in the whole society century after century.

The ongoing general advance is the march of creation and change in which the Korean people would overcome any sorts of difficulties and hardships and make a leap forward with the might of their strong and independent faith and revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.

The history of revolutionary great upsurge in socialist Korea will be given steady continuity as its army and people's hearts are beating high with the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance created in the thick forests of Mt. Paektu.

It is also an all-people advance for firmly defending our ideology, system and socialist way of life with the revolutionary ideological offensive.

There can be no change in the revolutionary principle and stand of our army and people to resolutely smash the imperialists' reactionary ideological and cultural poisoning with the said offensive. Our ideological position is stable and our own style socialism impregnable as there are the revolutionary army and people who do not make the any slightest compromise or concession in the showdown with imperialism.

The present general advance will be registered in the nation's history as a historic advance bringing about the era of enormous creation and change while fully displaying the inexhaustible mental power of Songun Korea as it is led by Kim Jong Il, a prominent thinker and theoretician and a great statesman.
That's almost restrained for them.

Update: The Jewish people also have a "strong mental power peculiar to them," and this is given full play in the latest Haveil Havalim. Some people might think, of course, that all this talk of mental power is pure insanity. If that's what you think, you'll want to check out the latest Carnival of the Insanities.
