Some motivation is much needed during these tiring times and hence the hermit kingdom has released a list of 300 slogans designed to lift the people’s spirits.
Translated, the slogans run for around 7,000 words – or almost two pages long. They were released to mark the 70 years since the “foundation of the isolated state and its ruling Workers' Party.”
They’re full of motivational words such as the following:
"Should the enemy dare to invade our country, annihilate them to the last man so that none of them will survive to sign the instrument of surrender.”
"Let the strong wind of fish farming blow across the country!"
"Let the wives of officers become dependable assistants to their husbands!"
"Let us turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland by the joint operation of the army and people!”
Given the rhetoric of these political slogans, perhaps their supreme leader took this meme, along with Sun Tzu’s Art of War, a bit too seriously:
Meanwhile, North Korea struggles to raise the standard of living for its people, dealing with issues of poverty, food shortages and lack of electricity.
While maintaining political morale is important, it’s no surprise that hermit kingdom, which has a centralized government, comes up with lines like these.
Long live the self-proclaimed supreme leader.
