World People's Boundless Reverence for Kim Jong Il

Pyongyang, December 18 (KCNA) – The ardent reverence for Kim Jong Il is growing deeper among the world people as the days go by.

The special prize first class was conferred on him by the Arab Association for Arts, Culture and Information in Egypt, the title of honorary academician of the International Sociology Academy by the “Protectors of Arts for the Century”, a Russian international charity fund, the Honorary Merit Medal of Industrial Work by the Brazilian National Federation of Industrial Workers, the order “Star of Friendship” by the Federation of Peace and Friendship Organizations of Mongolia and the titles of honorary professor and “Master of Journalists” and the Education Merit Medal by Guayaquil University of Ecuador.
The plate bearing the august names of President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il was added to the monument “Good Angel of Peace” erected at the Park Commemorating the 850th anniversary of Moscow, this year. Earlier in September last year their names were inscribed in the monument “Good Angel of Peace” in Bryansk Region of Russia.
His Songun policy, independent policy was lauded at functions celebrating the 62nd anniversary of the foundation of the Workers' Party of Korea and the 81st anniversary of the formation of the Down-with- Imperialism Union held in 70-odd countries and international and regional organizations.
Figures of the academic, mass media and cultural circles of Russia and Ukraine brought out the book “Great Succession” which collects articles praising his immortal feats.

It's part of the routine with cult of personality dictators… They all do it.

It's not so much the “Great Leaders” themselves, it's the people immediately around them. They develop their own mad cheer squads who spend heir time trying to out do each other in veneration, and trying to convince everyone else of the “Greatness” too.

It probably happens in all political systems really. George Jnr has his crazy fans, just like Kim Il, but no where near as many because freedom of the press and multiparty democracy means that the cheer squad never has the platform for that sort of promotion.

One of the mistakes outsiders make is that they think it's all done with coercion. No, that's reserved for dissidents who're always in the minority (during the leaders heyday anyway). The leaders are like Elvis or the Beatles.
