A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
December 17: First anniversary of the death of Comrade Kim Jong Il, leader of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
As I wrote back in 2010: “I have great respect and compassion for Kim Jong Il, a man personally devoted to art and culture, who might have chosen a very different life for himself, but instead did his duty to the revolution and his people. He has done much to uphold socialism and is deserving of respect, not the belittlement and racist caricatures of the capitalist media (too often repeated by ‘progressives’).” - redguard
