"Long Live Socialist Realism!" »

From The Tongues of Fools ...

Now, I am well aware that Kim Jong Il and his gang of cronies are as wired as Tim Leary on a bad day, and that their craziness is often infectiously funny; but you got to hand it to them, they sure know how to say it out loud:

"Illusion about the U.S. imperialism and capitalism should be removed, Rodong Sinmun says in a signed article today. What is important in the struggle for independence at present is to dispel illusion about the U.S. and other Western powers, says the article. Noting that the capitalist society is a "paradise" for the bourgeois ruling class but a "hell" for the working masses, the article cites concrete data of the corrupt U.S. society to disclose that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer in the capitalist society.

The capitalist society should be called a society of darkness and a living hell, not the society of bliss, the article says, calling for discerning the essence of "aid," "cooperation" and "peace" touted by the U.S. and the West.

They force other countries to accept their reactionary political system and economic form in return for "aid" and "joint exploitation", talking about the advantages of their system and form and in this way they seek to Americanize and Westernize other countries, the article says, warning that anyone may be taken in by their art of disguise if he loosens vigilance against it.

As a wolf cannot change into a sheep, so the aggressive and plunderous nature of the U.S. imperialists never changes, the article says, adding that it is their trite method to wield moneybag in one hand and a stick in the other to achieve their dominationist purpose.

All those countries and people aspiring after independence and progress should correctly understand that any illusion about U.S. imperialism and capitalism will lead to death, ruin and subjugation, the article stresses, and notes: All the revolutionary parties and people should hold fast to the anti-U.S. independent stand and allow no slightest illusion about capitalism."

Now really, who amongst us hasn't said exactly that to oneself over the last few months?
