PYONGYANG, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) leading newspaper Rodong Sinmun called to “open a campaign against the penetration of reactionary imperialist ideology and culture into independent states.” According to the newspaper, “the penetration of a dangerous ideological virus” from the Western states would inevitably lead to a moral and spiritual degradation. This, in turn, “could cause a crisis in relations between the government, people and army, cause internal disorganisation.”
The Pyongyang Times newspaper also urges North Korea’s citizens to be vigilant and resist the penetration of specimens of Western ideology and culture into the country.
The publication notes that at present the imperialists are trying hard to promote the bourgeois way of life, especially in the countries where they have “failed to establish their control through political and military threats, as well as by means of an economic blockade.” The United States usually calls such states “closed societies” and “dictatorships.”
“The imperialists are not going to abandon the struggle for the elimination of socialism, and these reactionary practices are becoming more vicious every day,” it is said on an article published by the Pyongyang Sinmun newspaper.
The imperialists’ intrigues to implement their ideology and culture are aimed at “undermining the confidence of the DPRK people in socialism, at disorganising our society,” the newspaper says.
