Classic Text by Comrade Kim Il Sung
KIM IL SUNG ON DOGMATISM, REVISIONISM, AND ANTI-US STRUGGLE
Excerpt from "THE PEOPLE'S ARMY - A COMMUNIST SCHOOL (EXCERPT)" : Talk with Soldiers of the 109th Army Unit of the Korean People's Army August 25, 1960 Section #4 On Opposing Dogmatism and Revisionism. Originally published in On Juche in Our Revolution v.1 pages 202-203 by Weekly Guardian Associate as a dedication to President Kim Il Sung on his 65th Birthday in 1977.
The Irkutsk group used to make demagogic attacks on any opponents of dogmatism or their views, claiming that they were against the Soviet Union. This made it impossible to fight against Cho Jong Hak's misdeeds.
Our opposition to dogmatism does not undermine solidarity with the Soviet Union. Lenin and Stalin, both Soviets, also advocated opposition to dogmatism.
Thanks to our Party's struggle against dogmatism we could accelerate socialist construction. Had we clung to dogmatism we would have gotten nowhere.
Some foreigners have often criticized our work though not acquainted with our situation. When we were organizing cooperatives they claimed it was too premature. However, because we formed the cooperatives at the time we have been able to live on. After the war, we had nothing on hand. The war destroyed everything we had had. There were only a few cattle in the countryside. Such being the situation, how could we subsist without organizing cooperatives?
The fraternal parties now praise the Worker's Party of Korea as being second to none in socialist construction. This is also because we did not slide into dogmatism.
We must firmly oppose revisionism, as well as dogmatism.
Revisionists refashion Marxism-Leninism. They laud themselves as cleaverer Marxist-Leninists than Marx or Lenin. Certain countries have this tendency.
Some people insist that we must peacefully coexist with the Yankees. How can we do so, without opposing US imperialism?
People of great powers may commit errors. We cannot fully agree with them or follow them blindly.
Some people asked us to withdraw our slogan "Wipe out the US aggressors!" saying it was undesirable. Our Party Central Committee declined their claim.
In addition, they told us, "Don't shoot down intruding US airplanes but just land them." The countries which have good planes may do so, but not we. We must pursue the aircraft and shoot them down. We pay no heed to the words of the evil-minded.
It is true that we must unite with the fraternal countries. However, we need not emulate the misdeeds of individual persons in these countries.
As far back as the days of the anti-Japanese guerrilla struggle, we put up the slogan: defend and unite with the Soviet Union and so shall we in the future. We cannot do everything as the Soviets do because we must unite with them.
We Koreans should properly assimilate progressive things of the brother countries to suit our own taste. Only then can we hasten construction of communism.
