    Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun today dedicates a signed article to the 13th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's famous work "Abuses of Socialism Are Intolerable". The article says:
    What is important in the ideas and theories clarified in the work is that it made a profound exposition of the issue of making socialism conviction and ethics. Only when all the members of society have unshakable faith in socialism and regard it as their moral duty to defend it is it possible to creditably carry forward the cause of socialism and achieve its final victory.
    What is important for making socialism one's conviction and ethics is to have an unshakable idea and will for socialism and regard it a moral duty to defend socialism. We have the path of socialism to cover, the road of justice chosen by ourselves no matter which way others may follow and our socialist way of living is the best no matter what others may say. This is the faith of the Korean people.
    Their revolutionary conscience and sense of moral obligation are based on the firm conviction that to defend Korean-style socialism and glorify it precisely means defending and glorifying the destiny and future of themselves and their posterity. What is also important for making socialism conviction and ethics is that the party and state should correctly conduct socialist construction to meet requirements of the popular masses for independence and their interests.
    Kim Jong Il in the work clarified the idea that the nature of a working-class party and a socialist regime is to serve the people, the idea that all officials should have the spirit of faithfully serving the people and the idea of attaching importance to remoulding man's ideological consciousness and the idea of strengthening the working-class party and state guidance to economy and preserving the socialist ownership and other theoretical and practical issues to be considered as guidelines for successfully building socialism.
    Korean-style socialism is winning one victory after another thanks to the absolute support and trust of the popular masses. This would be unthinkable without the popular policy of the Workers' Party of Korea.
