Advantageous Social System in DPRK Praised by Russian Political Party
Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- The Communist Workers Party of Russia affiliated to the Communist Party of the Soviet Union posted an article titled "Social phenomena peculiar to the DPRK" on its website on January 9.

The article under the subtitles "People who don't know house prices", "Section doctor system", "No jobless people" and "Dignity of women" said: Foreigners admire Changjon Street in Pyongyang after touring it.

It is because the majority of citizens living there are ordinary people and they do not know about the house prices at all. On the contrary, they ask foreigners about the house prices in the West.

It is unimaginable in the West that an ordinary worker buys a deluxe flat like the one in Changjon Street.

The DPRK has long enforced the section doctor system.

Doctors in the DPRK are totally responsible to the health of the citizens they are in charge of.

An ordinance on enforcing the universal compulsory 12-year education was adopted at the 6th session of the 12th Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK in 2012.

What is important is that all these are free of charge.

There are no jobless people in the DPRK. There is neither a signboard of "employment agency" nor anyone who finds out a job through papers and websites. Moreover, there is no one wandering about streets.

Only voices calling for working harder for the country and prosperity of society are loudly heard in the DPRK and one can never hear voices condemning or cursing its social system.

This is because there are no such conditions to lash them into fury as doctor's fee, house prices and taxes in the DPRK.

The slogan of "Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!" has been applied in all fabrics of social life in the DPRK.

It is fundamentally different from the capitalist world where the jungle law prevails and money is everything
