To Bring About Great Upsurge by Dint of Self-reliance
In June Juche 98 (2009), Chairman Kim Jong Il said to officials in the following vein:

The current drive for a great progress is the one for bringing about a great upsurge based on self-reliance. We should kindle the flames of upsurge in the spirit of self-reliance, under the slogan of “Self-reliance is the only way to survive!” All the officials, Party members and other working people should cherish the confidence and assurance that there will be nothing impossible if they believe in their own strength, and make breakthroughs of the upsurge with their own strength, technologies and resources. The road of self-reliance is not a royal road. Self-reliance means the unyielding spirit of overcoming difficulties and the spirit of fortitude. The forerunners of self-reliance adorn the course of their struggle with the spirit. That is why the word fortitude comes after self-reliance.

His words served as the motive power that encouraged the Korean people to create an unprecedented speed of a great upsurge on all fronts of socialist construction.
