Imperialists Accused of Their Moves to Stamp out National Languages
| Pyongyang, June 18 (KCNA) -- Imperialists' moves to stamp out national languages are very dangerous criminal acts as they are aimed to vandalize the precious mental and cultural wealth accumulated by humankind through long history and adversely affect the independence and unity of each country and nation and their independent development, says DPRK major newspaper Rodong Sinmun Saturday in a signed article.
It goes on:
The moves are little short of acts of aggression without gunfire against other countries and nations and major means for realizing their strategy for world hegemony.
As the reactionary nature of the globalization advocated by the imperialists was proven by reality, it is the most vicious and craftiest move to exterminate the nation, an attempt to assimilate other people to their citizens and a strategy for hegemony because it is aimed at imposing their view on value and mode upon them, ignoring national boundaries and characters in all fabrics of social life.
The imperialists are using the exchange and cooperation among countries for national prosperity and development and social progress as an important lever for implementing their hegemonic policy.
Typical of them is the United States. It enacts acts concerning them and uses exchange and cooperation as levers for its political domination and economic plunder of other countries and stamps out their languages on their strength.
Imperialists advocate "use of multi-languages", a reactionary theory, and deliberately complicate the language issue in multi-nationality states. By doing so, they spark and stir up conflicts among nations, tribes and religions in a bid to use linguistic contradictions and friction for achieving their purposes of dominating and subjugating other nations.
They are also pressurizing the homogenous nations to use their languages overtly or covertly in a bid to mar the pure and unique nature of their national languages or deprive them of this nature and precipitate the split of nations and make them heterogeneous.
For instance, south Korea is prevalent with the use of medley words and the tendency of using foreign words. Being grave consequences entailed by the U.S. imperialists' moves to stamp out national languages, they are depriving the Korean language of its purity and unique nature and seriously affecting the uniform development of the advantageous Korean language.
This is one of the main factors which perpetuate the division of the Korean nation and facilitate the process of making it heterogeneous, concludes the article.
