    Pyongyang, September 24 (KCNA) -- Grim ordeals and difficulties are lying in the way of the Korean revolution owing to the U.S. imperialists' vicious moves against the DPRK but all its people have strong faith that they are sure to win and the future of the country is bright as they are guided by Kim Jong Il. Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this in a signed article. It goes on:
    The Korean people's faith in socialism is, first of all, based on the absolute belief in the validity of the ideas and line of Kim Jong Il.
    The course in which the Korean people won great victories in the confrontation with the United States and brought about signal changes in building a great prosperous powerful nation under the great banner of Songun during the "Arduous March", the forced march, firmly convinced them that his ideas and policies serve as the most powerful weapon for accomplishing the cause of socialism of Korean style. It has become a deep-rooted trait of the army and people of the DPRK to devotedly implement his ideas and intention, regarding his revolutionary ideas as their maxim of struggle and life.
    The Korean people's faith in socialism is also based on the undisputed conviction of the advantages of the Korean-style socialist system holding him in high esteem as their father.
    Benevolent social policies such as free education and free medical service were invariably enforced and a dynamic work was conducted to improve the standard of the people's living and enhance the level of cultural and emotional life of the working people at the state expense in so difficult time of the country as the period of the "Arduous March", the forced march. This was possible only under the socialist system in Korea. Our society is like a large family as all its members help and lead each other forward on the basis of collectivism. People's beautiful traits of devoting themselves to society and the collective and revolutionary comrades prevail in the society.
    The Korean people's faith in socialism is also based on the unshakable conviction that they are always sure to triumph under the leadership of Kim Jong Il. They experienced the great heyday in the era of the Workers' Party in the 1970s and 1980s and a shining victory in defending socialism in the 1990s under his leadership. They also witnessed the stirring reality in which the country made a leap forward toward the eminence of a great prosperous powerful nation despite the worst adversity which might force others to collapse. Kim Jong Il has brought about great victories and tremendous changes in all fields, political, military, economic and cultural with his matchless grit, pluck, extraordinary stratagem and revolutionary sweep, shattering every move of the U.S. imperialists and reactionaries against the DPRK. The dawn of a great prosperous powerful nation is breaking in the DPRK thanks to his wise guidance. This stirring reality is reinforcing the Korean people's conviction that the cause of socialism of Korean style is sure to triumph in the future.
