Slogan Based on Noble Outlook on Posterity
Pyongyang, January 14 (KCNA) -- "Let us live not merely for today but for tomorrow!" -- this is a slogan leader Kim Jong Il set forth at the talks with senior officials of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea on January 14, Juche 85 (1996).

He said that the slogan represented his view of life, adding that it means one should devotedly work for the future of the country and the happiness of posterity, though one does not lead an enjoyable life in one's lifetime.

Love for the future has been a mental mainstay for the Korean people.

The first generation of the Korean revolution invariably went along the long and arduous course of anti-Japanese armed struggle under the guidance of President Kim Il Sung with firm faith in the victory. "Love the future!" and "Victory of the revolution is in sight!" -- these were what they had kept in their minds.

Carrying forward this faith, the army and people of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea won in the hard-fought Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953) and built a powerful socialist country, independent in politics, self-supporting in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, on the ruins after the war.

Optimistic of future, Songun Korea could overcome the worst adversity, caused by the U.S.-led imperialists' anti-socialist moves and consecutive natural disasters.

Kim Jong Il in his lifetime devotedly worked to lay eternal foundations for building a powerful nation, with the noble outlook on the posterity. His devoted efforts and feats are still encouraging the Korean army and people in the drive to glorify the new century of the Juche era.
