We’ve done it, we’ve synthesized makeup feminism with imperialist propaganda

Again another DPRK defector is exploited to perpetuate an imperialist orientalist fantasy so as to justify and maintain a state of hostility from imperialist countries towards the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The refinery29 article quickly exposes its scripted nature when – as an example – it says
there are no exact names for the products in North Korea. Lipsticks are called ‘the thing to paint on lips.

Lipstick in the DPRK is called “ibsul yeonji” (입술연지 — literally lips-red or
lips-rouge). This can easily be found on the packages for lipstick:

Everything else featured on the article is just recycled anti-DPRK propaganda from fashion police to mandatory haircuts, they even cite the LINK organisation which was co-founded by Adrian Hong Chang, an u.$. backed agent who committed an act of terrorism against the DPRK’s embassy in Madrid.

[May 5 Juche 108 (2019) KCNA]

A spokesperson for the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) gave
the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 5 as regards the
coup d’état attempt by anti-government forces in Venezuela:


An abnormal incident broke out recently in Venezuela, where internal
anti-government forces attempted a coup d’état to remove the
legitimately elected president.


The latest coup d’état attempt is an extremely dangerous act of violence
that pushes the Venezuelan situation to an utmost instability, having a
highly negative impact on the overall situation in the region.


The situation in Venezuela is being aggravated day by day, because the
internal anti-government forces are launching, with the support of the
outside forces, a campaign against the president from January and the
hostile forces are making undisguised attempt to deprive Venezuela of
its representation in the United Nations.


At the same time, the United States, acting like a “single superpower”,
is making such reckless remarks that a military action is possible with
regard to the Venezuelan situation and the U.S. will carry out that
action if so necessary. These remarks are evoking great concern of the
international community.


We condemn all of the attempts for removing the legitimately elected
president of Venezuela and interfering in its internal affairs as a
challenge to international justice and a flagrant violation of
international law.


We call for a peaceful solution to the Venezuelan issue in accordance
with the independent will and decision of the government and people of
that country and extend invariable support and solidarity to the
Venezuelan people in their struggle for defending sovereignty.

I am wondering if you could explain the Juche …

I am wondering if you could explain the Juche Idea to me in a little more depth than what available on the internet. Or perhaps a really good website or video? I know the basics of it, the self reliance to avoid dependence on other countries and to become a strong, self sufficient state, but it sounds better than I thought it would, as a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who subscribes to individuality. Thanks in advance comrade!

Although the first documented mention of Juche is from 1955, the idea itself began taking its roots around 1930 at a meeting of leading personnel of the Young Communist League and the Anti-Imperialist Youth League held in Kalun. President Kim Il Sung – a prominent figure in the revolutionary struggle against the Japanese occupation of Korea – began drafting a series of starting points based on his experience and the lessons learned from the meeting:

  • The master of revolution is the popular masses and revolution can only emerge victorious when they are educated, organised, and mobilised.
  • A revolution should be carried out according to one’s faith and on one’s own responsibility, not with someone’s approval or directive.

  • All problems that arise in the revolution must be handled in an independent, and creative way.

Chairman Kim Jong Il would later develop these into what is known today as the Juche idea. In the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea the Juche idea is an ideological extension (or continuation) to Marxism-Leninism that is primarily concerned with the laws of social movement, and the development of socialist ideology under a socialist socio-economic system.

It would be wrong to argue that the Juche idea is the application of Marxism-Leninism to the social and material conditions of the DPRK – rather this was an ideological and philosophical development that was born out of the trials and errors in implementing Marxism-Leninism in the DPRK. With the socialist camp being split apart due to factionalism, great power chauvinism, dogmatism, and revisionism coming from the U.S.S.R., Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il interpreted these as shortcomings (limitations) of Marxism-Leninism in addressing socio-ideological problems that arise in a society under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

The Juche idea can be divided into four principles:

Trump approved payment of $2 million bill for North Korea care of Warmbier: report:

juchechat:

The Post said an invoice was handed to State Department envoy Joseph
Yun hours before Warmbier, 22, was flown out of Pyongyang in a coma on
June 13, 2017. Warmbier died six days later.  

Yun, when asked for comment, said in an email “I cannot comment/confirm on diplomatic exchanges”.

The
U.S. envoy, who was sent to retrieve Warmbier, signed an agreement to
pay the medical bill on instructions passed down from Trump, the Post
reported, citing two unidentified people familiar with the situation.  

“We
do not comment on hostage negotiations, which is why they have been so
successful during this administration,” White House spokeswoman Sarah
Sanders told Reuters.

The bill was sent to the Treasury
Department and remained unpaid through 2017, the Post reported. It was
not known if the administration later paid the bill.

Christopher Ahn was arrested on Thursday and appeared on Friday in
federal court in Los Angeles, according to a law enforcement official
and a source close to the group.

In a related development, armed
U.S. federal agents on Thursday raided the apartment of Adrian Hong,
leader of Cheolima Civil Defense, a group seeking the overthrow of North
Korean leader Kim Jong Un that is blamed for the Feb. 22 embassy raid, a
person close to the group said without providing more details. Hong was
not present at his residence when the raid occurred, the source said.

The U.S. Justice Department declined to comment.  

A
group of at least 10 people stormed into the embassy, restrained and
physically beat some personnel and held them hostage for hours before
fleeing, according to a Spanish court.

Spanish investigators have
said the intruders removed computers and hard drives from the embassy
before fleeing to the United States, where they handed over the material
to the FBI.  

A
Spanish judicial source said this week the material had been returned
by Spanish authorities to Pyongyang’s mission after being returned two
weeks previously by the FBI to the Spanish court investigating the raid.

[April 20 Juche 108 (2019) KCNA]

Choe Son Hui, first vice-minister of
Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK),
gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA on April 20, in
the light of the fact that John Bolton, national security adviser of
the White House, gave himself airs with his own remarks on the 3rd round
of DPRK-U.S. summit:


Bolton, national security adviser of the White House, in an interview
with Bloomberg on April 17, showed above himself by saying such a
nonsense that the U.S. needs to see a real indication from north Korea
that it has made a strategic decision of giving up its nuclear weapons
before the 3rd DPRK-U.S. summit and that it should be ready to discuss
what President Trump talked on a “Big Deal”.


As it was before, we have never expected that adviser Bolton would ever
make a reasonable remark. For all that, if he is a White House national
security adviser, he should at least have understood about what kinds of
substantive communications are made between the top leaders concerning
the 3rd round of summit before he had ever opened his mouth.


But Bolton’s remarks make me wonder whether they sprang out of
incomprehension of the intentions of the top leaders of the DPRK and the
U.S. or whether he was just trying to talk with a certain sense of
humor for his part, with its own deviation. All things considered, his
word has no charm in it and he looks dim-sighted to me.


In this remark of Bolton, I can hardly find the tact and logic of the American style so common in American lingo.


I warn you that it would do yourself no good if you continue to throw away such remarks devoid of discretion and reason.
