1Starting the late 1970s, he developed a tumor-like growth on the back of his neck which was a calcium deposit. Its location near his brain and spinal cord made it inoperable. Because of its ugly appearance, North Korean reporters always shot and filmed Kim Il Sung from his same slight-left angle to hide the tumor, which became a difficult task as the growth reached the size of a baseball by the late 1980s. The tumor is still visible on his embalmed body.

2The peoples of Asia, Africa, and Latin America have common interest and are in the position to support each other in their anti-imperialist and anti-U.S. struggle. As long as Africa and Latin America are not free.
3Peace secured by slavish submission is not peace.
4Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority.
5It is necessary to expose the false propaganda of the imperialists and thoroughly dispel the illusion that the imperialists will give up their positions in the colonies and dependent countries with good will.
6The oppressed peoples can liberate themselves only through struggle. This is a simple and clear truth confirmed by history.
7The most important thing in our war preparations is to teach all our people to hate U.S. imperialism. Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority.
8We are opposed to the line of compromise with imperialism. At the same time, we cannot tolerate the practice of only shouting against imperialism, but, in actual fact, being afraid to fight it.
9It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious.
10South Koreans who have seen and praised the mass games should remember the hardship of tearful children. Teachers drive them hard with curses and orders to repeat and repeat. When the children return home in the evening, they can hardly walk.
