-In Celebration of the 109th Birth Anniversary of President Kim Il Sung

President Kim Il Sung, whom the Korean people acclaimed for the first time in their history spanning 5 000 years, was the father of the Korean nation and the founding father of socialist Korea.

He was born in a modest, straw-thatched house at Mangyongdae in Pyongyang on April 15, Juche 1 (1912).

At that time Korea was turned into a living hell as it was placed under the military occupation of the Japanese imperialists. Patriotic figures, who failed to realize their high ambition of liberating Korea, lamented bitterly over their ruined nation. As they were deprived of their mother tongue by the Japanese imperialists, they dispersed to go to alien lands in search of a means of survival.

The Korean people waited for the advent of a leader who could save their country. At this juncture, Kim Il Sung formed the Down-with-Imperialism Union on October 17, 1926 and declared a fresh start of the Korean revolution. Then he rallied the broad sections of people including workers, peasants and youth and students and roused them to the anti-Japanese patriotic struggle.

He authored the immortal Juche idea that one must carry out the revolution independently and creatively on one’s own responsibility, casting a fresh light on the road ahead of the Korean revolution.

He was the Sun who provided sustenance for the Korean people to revive their soul stained with tears of blood and disgrace of a ruined nation.

Young Korean communists held him up in the highest esteem by singing the song Star of Korea in praise of him who would shed bright light on the land of 3 000 ri like a bright star in the sky of their country. They regarded him as the saviour of Korea and the Sun of its nation.

By leading the 20-year-long anti-Japanese revolution to victory, he achieved Korea’s liberation. When he first met with the Korean people on October 14, 1945, he called on all of them to build a prosperous country with those with strength giving strength, those with knowledge offering knowledge and those with money donating money.

Poet Ri Chan praised General Kim Il Sung as the light and the Sun of the Korean people, and the Korean people turned out in the effort to build a new Korea true to his idea of building a prosperous country, shouting “Long live General Kim Il Sung, the Sun of the Nation”.

But the nascent DPRK had to undergo trials again owing to the armed invasion of the enemies. However, under the leadership of Kim Il Sung, the Korean people won victory in the three-year-long Fatherland Liberation War and defended with honour the freedom and independence of their country. And they built socialist Korea on the debris of the war and ushered in a new history of creations and changes.

He devoted all his life to protecting the cradle of their independent life and providing them with more cultured and happy life.

Regarding “The people are God” as his lifetime motto, Kim Il Sung always went among the people and sat knee to knee with them discussing their livelihood. He ensured that their aspirations and demands were reflected in the policies and realized.

Always on the road of field guidance, rain or shine, he visited every part of the country, be it a factory or rural village, lowland or mountainous area.

Having embarked on the road of revolution in his teens, he achieved the cause of nation building in his thirties, firmly safeguarded the sovereignty and dignity of the country and developed the DPRK into a people-centred socialist state through his energetic activities as the head of state for nearly half a century. Indeed, it is not fortuitous that the Korean people hold him in the highest esteem, regarding him as the Sun of their nation and the eternal image of the DPRK.

That is why they convey his exploits for all ages, calling their country and nation Kim Il Sung’s Korea and Kim Il Sung’s nation.

After his demise on July 8, 1994, they renovated the Kumsusan Assembly Hall, his residential office, into the Kumsusan Memorial Palace (The present Kumsusan Palace of the Sun) and preserved him there in his lifetime appearance. And they instituted the Juche era with 1912, when Kim Il Sung was born, as the first year and designated April 15, the date of his birth, as the Day of the Sun and the greatest national holiday. In addition, they, by adopting a law, proclaimed that he would be held up in the highest esteem as the eternal President of the DPRK.

As he adorned his sacred revolutionary career with lofty ideals and boundless devotion, Kim Il Sung still remains etched in the hearts of the Korean people as their eternal Sun.

    1. 1. That picture is part of Korean culture, intended for internal consumption, in order to produce hatred, which will satiate the roots of the racial tree with vigour. Who is an American compared to this? A quirky, ephemeral creature.
      2. I do sometimes think about what would have happened had the USSR lost the war. It might sound heretical, but what if then Germany had helped to liberate Korea?
      3. Either way, Korea is used to surviving extreme 1v3 encounters amongst the surrounding giants. The moment they achieved their victory in 1945, they have not let go of their fate since.
      4. Hitler was a politician, Kim Il Sung – a legendary revolutionary. His guerilla warfare in Manchuria reminds me of Tolkien’s Dor-Cúarthol.

      Dor-Cúarthol, the Land of Bow and Helm, was the land ruled by Túrin of the House of Hador, situated in Talath Dirnen around Amon Rûdh, “between Teiglin and the west march of Doriath”. The name comes from Beleg’s great bow and the Helm of Hador borne by Túrin.

      One day in the midst of winter, Beleg of Doriath, having been seeking out his old friend, brought to him the Helm of his ancestors, and joined the outlaws. Túrin took a new name, Gorthol, from the dreadful Helm he now donned, and the Two Captains along with their company defended the region against the Orcs of Morgoth. The Orcs were hunted down and even though they outnumbered the Company greatly the valour of Túrin and the bowmanship of Beleg made them seem like a host.

      The deeds of the Two Captains was heard across all Beleriand, in Menegroth, Nargothrond and Gondolin, declaring “the Helm and Bow that had fallen in Dimbar had arisen again beyond hope”. Many leaderless and dispossessed wanderers took heart and came to seek them and Túrin gladly received them. Many camps and forts was established around Amon Rûdh such as Methed-en-glad and Bar Erib.

      President Kim Il Sung declared the anti-Japanese war at the foot of Mt Paektu and commanded a 15-year-long hard-fought struggle with the Japanese imperialists in the areas centring on Mt Paektu and, in the course of this, created the revolutionary traditions of Paektu, the eternal foundation of socialist Korea.

      The idea, character, hobby and habit of General Kim Jong Il represented the spirit of Mt Paektu. His mettle, courage and pluck as a brilliant commander resembled the summit of Mt Paektu standing majestically in spite of any storm.


  1. “It might sound heretical, but what if then Germany had helped to liberate Korea?”

    “We know that these clashes with Asia and Jewry are necessary [p. 16] for evolution. They give the cue [Auftakt] for the European Continent to unite. These clashes are the only evolu-tionary possibility which will enable us one day, now that Fate has given us the Fuehrer Adolf Hitler, to create the Germanic Reich. They are the necessary condition, for our race, and our blood to create for itself and put under cultivation, in the years of peace, (during which we must live and work austerely, frugally and like Spartans), that settlement area in which new blood can breed, as in a botanical garden so to speak. Only by this means can the Continent become a Germanic Continent, capable of daring to embark, in one or [p. 17] two or three or five or ten generations, on the conflict with this Continent of Asia which spews out hordes of humanity. Perhaps we shall also have to hold in check other coloured peoples who will soon be in their certain prime, and thus preserve the world, which is the world of our blood, of our children and of our grandchildren. Now it is just this world we like the best, the Germanic world, the world of Nordic life. We know that this conflict with the advancing pressure from Asia, with the 200 million Russians, is necessary. And we shall win as sure as I am speaking here in the University of Kharkow. ”


    “Thus we will create the necessary conditions for the whole Germanic people and [p. 115] the whole of Europe, controlled, ordered and led by us, the Germanic people, to be able, in generations, to stand the test in her battles of destiny against Asia, who will certainly break out again. We do not know when that will be. Then, when the mass of humanity of 1 to 1.5 milliards lines up against us, the Germanic people, numbering, I hope, 250 to 300 millions, and the other European peoples, making a total of 600 to 700 millions — (and with an outpost area stretching as far as the Urals, or, a hundred years, beyond the Urals) — must stand the test in its vital struggle against Asia. It would be an evil day if the Germanic people did not survive it. It would be the end of beauty and “Kultur”, of the creative power of this earth. That is the distant future. It is for that that we are fighting, pledged to hand down the heritage of our ancestors.”


    Why do you think JewSA didn’t use nuclear weapons in Korea? Like they did in Japan.


    1. Thanks for the marvelous quotes! I have even corrected a typo there – apparently, my Wikiquote account has evaded the ban for homophobia.

      The Himmlerian culturo-geopolitical Weltanschauung seems moronic, however.
      1. Starting an adventurous war against Russia merely to steal her lands is preposterous gambling.
      2. Do they mean Russia by “Asia”? If so, Russia was a mortally-wounded Christian nation that needed help, not war.
      3. Do they mean Iraq and China by “Asia”? If so, they were on their deathbed in the 1940s. I fail to see what outside of Europe could have offered the Europeans a fight. Of course, Japan – but 50 million is a laughable number, and even England could have beaten them.

      The Korean War is quite unique. It is the last serious attempt of the American power. Their effort effectively amounted to a genocide, as the East Asian allies refused to concede for years. But of course, even then, the Christians were too loving for a total war. Yes, I could see that a bombing campaign in China would have provoked a Russian response. But a sensible nation would at least have started a genocide in Japan… You know, in a world that makes sense. But Christians make no sense – outside the paradigm of collective dying.

      Geopolitics stops when there is no actor (and I’m not talking about humanism & transvestitism à la Kurginian).


  2. Is the “With The Century” playlist the full reading of Kim Il Sung’s memoirs? In order? Would be great if so. I loved “Myself in the Distant Future”. Is cinema an industry of the degenerates? 90 films produced in the DPRK vs. 5,439 films produced in South Korea. Also much more films produced in the Weimar Republic than in the Third Reich.
