A comprehensive list of DPRK slogans

In case you ever feel short of inspiring slogans, the WPK Central Committee and Central Military Commission has just published a list of 349 of them.

Here’s an example (#344):

The revolutionary spirit of Paektu, the spirit of the blizzards of Paektu and the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners’ call to keep the revolutionary faith even if one may die, stir up further the confidence in sure victory and fighting spirit of our service personnel and people, who are charging forward along the road of Juche against all odds, and inspire loyalty and passion in the advancing ranks.

In an editorial dated 14 February 2015 the Rodong Sinmun explained that “the joint slogans are the programmes for implementing to the letter the tasks set forth by supreme leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year address.”

A different list, of similar length, was published by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea back in 2011 to celebrate the 100th birthday of Kim Il Sung.
