Ever – Victorious Banner of the Socialist Cause
Towards the end of the 80s and the early 90s of the last century several ruling parties in the socialist countries collapsed, lowering the red flags that had kept flying for decades; however, the red flag of the WPK flew higher and more powerfully.
Kim Jong Il made public such famous works as on the fundamentals of revolutionary party building, abuse of socialism are intolerable, socialism is a science, and Giving priority to ideological work is essential for accomplishing socialism.
In order to cope with the situation in which prejudice, tyranny and high – handedness of the United State posing itself as a “victor of the cold war” and “world’s only superpower,” prevailed, Kim Jong Il formulated the Songun politics as the basic political mode of socialism, and led forward the cause of the party.
The flag of the Workers’ Party of Korea under the leadership of Kim Jong Il will fly forever as an unfurled banner of the cause of socialism.
