As a u.$. Naval strike group stalks toward the peninsula, the imperialists, whipped into a frenzy by Trump’s long-expected turn to ravenous interventionism, have shown a single-minded determination to destroy People’s Korea.

We often reference to putting “politics-in-command” and contrast this policy with those we find revisionist. But what exactly does this mean and how does it relate to the revolutionary science? Here we hope to shed some light on this critical issue. Originally found in Peking Review No. 30 published in July of 1969 the following is an analysis […]
