We're all North Koreans now...

From the April 2, 2010 edition of Korean Central News Agency, North Korea's ONLY newspaper. The rhetoric and fantasy can be hard to take, especially when these stir-fried Stalinists brag on the communist word before we get a chance to enact it here.

30th Anniversary of Public Health Law Marked

Pyongyang, April 2 (KCNA) -- A meeting took place at the Central Hall of Workers on Friday to mark the 30th anniversary of the promulgation of the Public Health Law thanks to President Kim Il Sung.

The participants heard the recorded historic speech "Let Us Implement the Public Health Law to the Letter" made by the President at the Fourth Session of the Sixth Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK on April 4, Juche 69 (1980).

Vice-Premier of the DPRK Cabinet O Su Yong said in his report that Kim Il Sung made sure that the above-said public health law was adopted at the Fourth Session of the Sixth SPA and made public a work indicating tasks and ways for implementing it, adding that this was an event of great historical significance in carrying out the Juche-oriented cause of public health.

The Public Health Law which comprehensively deals with popular health policies of the Workers' Party of Korea and the state is a Juche-oriented public health charter which provides a legal guarantee for all principles and requirements for freeing the working people from all diseases once and for all and promoting their health, he noted.

He referred to the fact that Kim Jong Il has energetically led the drive for defending the Juche-oriented idea and theory of public health and bringing about a new turn in the health service.

The reporter recalled that Kim Jong Il provided a national meeting of public health workers and sent the historic letter "On the Further Improvement of the Health Service" to its participants in April, Juche 74 (1985), clearly indicating tasks and ways for further developing the health service, and saw to it that various new laws were instituted to provide a legal guarantee for the health service.

The reporter stressed that under the wise leadership of the President and Kim Jong Il great successes have been made in the public health service and the advantages and vitality of the law have been fully demonstrated over the last three decades.

Pointing out that the true nature of socialism lies in prioritizing the people's wellbeing and regarding it as absolute, the reporter called on the public health workers to thoroughly implement the above-said law so that the benefits of the Party and the state may perfectly reach the working people.

It was attended by Choe Thae Bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, officials concerned and exemplary public health workers.
