Pyongyang, September 17 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Friday in an article says the aspiration and demand of the popular masses are criteria distinguishing the truth of all social phenomena, and that society which is in line with their aspiration and demand is the most advantageous one representing the future of mankind.
The world has long been locked in fierce ideological debates and showdown over the issue of which society represents the future of mankind: socialism or capitalism, the article says, and goes on;
The capitalist production mode by which capitalism has prolonged its days by dint of sweat and blood shed by the people has reached the limit to breathe its last.
As a result, the gap between the rich getting ever richer and the poor getting ever poorer has now become extreme.
Contradiction and antagonism between a tiny handful of the privileged and the popular masses are growing day by day in the capitalist society where the differentiation of society and the gap between the rich and the poor have come to their limits, signaling great social eruption.
The fate of capitalism going downhill is an inevitable result stemming from inhuman and unpopular individualism.
Individualism appeared on the stage of history as the product of outdated social system based on private ownership and as the idea of serving the ruling class who can not exist without exploiting others. It, therefore, makes people extremely self-interested beings and money slaves controlled by material desire.
It is as clear as noonday that in such society each person's dignity and worth can not be respected and the burgeoning distrust, antagonism, hatred and hostile relations would split society and lead it to destruction.
No matter how much the bourgeois advocates try to beautify capitalist society, they can never cover up its reactionary nature that goes against the aspiration and the intrinsic demand of the popular masses.
It is the inevitability of history and a law governing social development that capitalism finds itself falling deeper into the abyss of ruin as it goes fundamentally counter to the independent nature of mankind and mercilessly tramples down the demand of the people for genuine rights and happy life. -0-
