The Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea emphasized that the entire Party should cherish the three ideals of “The people are God,” single-hearted unity and self-reliance deeply in mind once again and adhere to them more strictly.
“The People Are God”
“The people are God” is a consistent political philosophy of the WPK, which strives for the well-being of the people, believing in them as in heavens.
The WPK has always put forward its lines and policies by correctly reflecting and crystallizing the desires and demands of the masses of the people, and carried them out by enlisting their efforts and wisdom.
It has thoroughly embodied the people-first principle in all realms of state affairs and social life, and raised as one of the supreme principle of its activities to constantly improve the people’s standard of living and implemented it thoroughly.
The slogan “Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!” reflects the WPK’s people-friendly features and its politics based on the people-first principle which makes selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people.
The WPK regards that there is no emergency more serious than alleviating the people’s distress and no revolutionary work more crucial than relieving their sufferings; thanks to its leadership, it became possible to fully remove the people’s sufferings and defend their lives and safety in the face of successive severe natural disasters.
This is the fundamental secret of how the WPK has enhanced its leadership ability and triumphantly advanced the cause of socialism.
