    Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- The solidity of the party and the state and the prospect of socialism, the ideal of humankind, depend on the ideological and moral strength of the army and the people, says Rodong Sinmun today in a signed article. It goes on:
    It is the cause of socialism which advances by the strength of idea and wins by the strength of confidence. The Korean revolution is a proud revolutionary cause which has been ever victorious with idea as its only and most powerful weapon.
    Attaching importance to idea has been the main maxim throughout the 60-year long history of the Workers' Party of Korea. It is well known a fact that the WPK, while pursuing Songun politics, has given priority not only to arms as physical means but to idea and spirit of the soldiers holding them in their hands and has advanced the revolution and construction on their pattern. To attach importance to arms in Songun politics has been to attach importance to idea.
    The idea and faith of the army and people of the DPRK who have recorded the sacred history of the Songun revolution as an ever-victorious chronicle are a noble spiritual power representing unity with the headquarters of the revolution in one mind and one will .The might of the ranks tens of millions strong united in one mind and one will is inexhaustible one defying comparison with mathematical sum total.
    The idea and faith of the army and the people of the DPRK are, in their content, those of the headquarters of the revolution.
    The strength of the army and the people who live and fight in the same idea, desire and emotion with their leader can not be vanquished even by nuclear weapons nor can they be frightened or subjugated by psychological warfare. The immense strength of revolutionary spirit displayed by the army and the people of the DPRK lies in its combination with a death-defying stand. This stand is an expression of unshakable trust in their leader and victory of the socialist cause.
    A great ideological power is led by a great master of ideology. Leader Kim Jong Il is the veteran of present-day socialist politics who put forward the Juche-based theory of ideology that idea decides everything and is recording an ever-victorious history by carrying it thoroughly into Korean revolutionary practice.
