   Pyongyang, November 2 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun today dedicates a signed article to the 11th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's work "Socialism Is a Science" (November 1, 1994). It says that the work serves as a library of the Juche-based idea and theory of socialism and a great revolutionary banner clearly indicating the way for the socialist cause to follow in our era.
    Comprehensively clarified in the work are the historical necessity of socialism and the basic ways of winning the victory of socialism, the essential advantages of socialism, the principled issues in applying the benevolent politics to meet the intrinsic demand of the socialist society and other theoretical and practical issues to be held fast to as the guidelines in accomplishing the cause of socialism.
    The article goes on:
    Kim Jong Il, on the basis of his lucid insight into the requirements of the era and the revolution, proved in the work the scientific nature, truth and invincibility of socialism and provided a powerful ideological and theoretical weapon for defending the socialist cause to the last. If the revolutionary people are to keep to the road of socialism to the last, they should have the unshakable faith in socialism.
    The reality of the DPRK clearly proves that socialism is regarded by the army and the people of the DPRK as their transparent faith, will and life and soul. Socialism is a society based on collectivism. The vitality of socialism lies in collectivism and the advantages of socialism can be fully displayed only on the basis of this collectivism.
    Korean-style socialism is emerging victorious despite all ordeals and storm and stress as the spirit of collectivism is prevailing throughout the society. The desire and aspiration of mankind for socialism are growing stronger and it is an irresistible trend to advance along the road of independence against imperialism, the road of socialism.
