The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is guided in its
activities by the Juche idea authored by President Kim Il Sung.
The Juche idea means, in a nutshell, that the masters of the
revolution and construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive
force of the revolution and construction.
The Juche idea is based on the philosophical principle that
man is the master of everything and decides every thing. It is the man-centred world outlook
and also a political philosophy to materialize the independence of the popular masses, namely,
a philosophy which elucidates the theoretical basis of politics that leads the development of
society along the right path.
The Government of the DPRK steadfastly maintains Juche in all
realms of the revolution and construction.
Establishing Juche means adopting the attitude of a master
towards the revolution and construction of one’s country. It means maintaining an independent
and creative standpoint to give solutions to the problems which arise in the revolution and
construction. It implies solving those problems mainly by one’s own efforts and in conformity
with the actual conditions of one’s own country.
The realization of Juche in ideology, independence
in politics, selfsufficiency in the economy and selfreliance in national
defence is a principle the Government maintains consistently.
It is an invariable policy of the Government of the Republic,
guided by the Juche idea, to treasure the Juche character and national character and maintain
and realize them. The Government of the Republic always adheres to the principle of Juche,
the principle of national independence, and thus is carrying out the socialist cause of Juche.
