Young People Called upon to Heighten Vigilance against Imperialists' Ideological and Cultural Poisoning
|Pyongyang, September 7 (KCNA) -- Progressive countries of the world should heighten vigilance against the imperialists' reactionary ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare against their young people. Rodong Sinmun Friday urges this in a bylined article.
The reactionary ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare are means for aggression and interference and a vicious destabilizing method.
The imperialists are intensifying the poisoning operation by using all channels under the pretext of "cooperation" and "exchange", asserting that reactionary ideology and culture can be as effective as military capability in realizing their hegemonic ambition.
A new characteristic feature in the imperialists' destabilizing strategy, reactionary ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare is that they mainly target young people unlike the past when it was focused on the mental degeneration of ordinary people.
Cites facts to prove it, the article goes on:
Imperialists run the whole gamut of intrigues to benumb youngsters, taking advantage of their mental characteristics. It is by no means fortuitous that they craftily take into consideration the fact that not a few young people are more interested in pop music and amusement than politics, drastically increase the number of amusement programs in broadcasting for young people and include between them programs propagandizing "advantages" of capitalist system, etc.
Because, it is their view that young people played not a small role in bringing about "Egyptian-style change" and "Libyan-style victory" in some countries.
The imperialists calculate that they can achieve their purpose more easily by luring youngsters and intensifying the reactionary ideological and cultural poisoning and psychological warfare against them.
One may say young people stand at the crossroads: whether they will become useful for revolution and society or get degenerate.
The article underscores the need to conduct effective education for preparing young people as able pillars for revolution and construction.
