Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- Socialism is the most advantageous society for the people among those of different types established in human history and the essential advantage of socialist society rests on collectivism. Rodong Sinmun today says this in a signed article.
    Genuine democracy is only socialist democracy based on collectivism, the article notes, and goes on:
    Socialist democracy puts forward the popular masses as the master of state and society and helps them enjoy their freedom and rights as the master of all fields of social life to their heart's content. Under socialist society the popular masses lead a worthwhile life as the proud master of the state sovereignty and means of production, creating and enjoying material wealth.
    People demand that they glorify their social and political life and live amid the love and trust of social collectives. It is possible only under the socialist society in which the popular masses take the position of master. It is because socialism embodies the relations of comradely unity and cooperation, love and trust in all fields of social life. Only socialist society makes it possible to strengthen the unity and cooperation of the collectives, enhance the creative enthusiasm of all members of the collectives and sufficiently meet the independent demands of the collectives and individuals altogether. The advantages of socialist society can be seen in the reality of the DPRK. The advantages of Korean-style socialism centering on the popular masses have their essential source in the might of the single-minded unity of the leader, the Party and the masses. The Korean army and people, single-heartedly united around the headquarters of the revolution, have devoted their all to the prosperity and rosy future of the country. It is the features of Korean society that all the people form a big harmonious family to help and lead forward each other and devote themselves to society and the collectives. Korean-style socialism is the advantageous socialism in which all the people become the master of everything, everything serves them and their independent and creative life is kept in full bloom.
