Rodong Sinmun Calls for Grasping People's Mindset
|Pyongyang, February 12 (KCNA) -- To educate the people in a revolutionary way and firmly grasp their mindset is an important issue deciding victory or defeat of the anti-imperialist and revolutionary struggle.
Rodong Sinmun Tuesday says in a bylined article in this regard:
The mainstay for revolution is single-minded unity and the mainstay for the unity is people's mindset which is affected by politics.
Many people in capitalist countries are infected with decadent lifestyle including the gun-related culture because they are degenerated ideologically and mentally and their social system allows and encourages it.
Socialist society where the class enmity was perfectly eliminated serves as a key foundation which helps stabilize the people's mindset and nurture it in a sound and revolutionary way.
It is, however, impossible for a socialist ruling party to consolidate and develop socialism unless it does proper work for grasping the people's mindset under such condition where the times and international environment have changed and the imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning has become evermore pronounced.
It was because of ruling parties which failed to hold the people's mindset that socialism collapsed in some countries at the end of last century.
The historical lesson proves that if a country fails to firmly grasp its people's mindset, not understanding them, its socialism will play into the hands of imperialists and renegades, and it is impossible to defend socialism.
Today the imperialist forces pin a great hope on their smear psychological campaign called "coloring revolution".
The "coloring revolution" is, in essence, warfare of disrupting and winning the people's mindset.
It is necessary to establish solid firewall of blocking the imperialists' ideological and cultural poisoning and awaken the people in revolutionary and class ways so as not to leave the state and society to the tender mercy of the imperialist forces.
