Pyongyang, November 2 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il's work "Socialism Is a Science" serves as a highly important document to be always held fast to in carrying out the popular masses' cause of independence, the cause of socialism.

Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says this in a signed article.

The work, made public on November 1, Juche 83 (1994), comprehensively clarifies all issues including sure victory of socialism as a science and principles and methods of struggle and ways to be adhered to in socialist construction.

The past 16 years since the publication of the work were a period during which scientific accuracy and vitality of Korean style socialism centered on the popular masses were fully proved and a significant course in which a brilliant chapter was recorded in the world's history of socialist movement, the article notes, and goes on:

Kim Jong Il laid all the foundations for the victory of the socialist cause of Juche, weathering difficulties before the revolution through his ceaseless forced march for field guidance. This is the immortal feat performed by him.

What is important in the immortal exploits performed by Kim Jong Il in carrying out the cause of socialism is that he made a new history of strengthening the driving force for the revolution in the era of Songun, built a strong military fortress firmly guaranteeing the sovereignty of the country with his Songun politics and laid a firm foundation for building a great prosperous and powerful nation by fully displaying the mental power of Kim Il Sung's nation.

He enunciated the idea of putting the army ahead of the working class in the crucible of the grim Songun revolution and paved a wide avenue for strengthening the driving force for the revolution on its basis.

The People's Army has grown to be a matchless army which does not show any slightest mercy to those who provoke the DPRK while the defense industry of the DPRK has a strong foundation for manufacturing anything as intended.

The servicepersons and people of the DPRK have the spirit of speed campaign with which they dash ahead like the wind against time, patriotism with which they are responsible for whatever they do for a thousand years and guarantee it for ten thousand years and the spirit of uninterrupted revolution with which they advance to attain higher goals, not remaining complacent about the successes made. These are their work style and methods of creation.

The drive to build a thriving socialist nation is sure to triumph as long as there are the people working hard to accomplish the revolutionary cause of Juche with pride and self-confidence of having Kim Jong Il at the helm of the revolution, concludes the article.
