The adventures of Kim Il Sung

Comment maker Time will Tell pointed me to this piece at the KCNA:
Father of Nation Always among People

I've edited it down a bit:

"The immortal services rendered by President Kim Il Sung who made a new history of creation and construction for the people and established the man-centered socialist Korea with his outstanding and seasoned leadership will be conveyed down through generations. He initiated the great cause for the people and blew any fabulous wealth which went against the interest of the people. This great fatherly love of his has provided all the happiness of the people"

And this is how he did it:

"[He] pushed his car on a muddy path...waited for daybreak outdoors, exposing himself to cold dew, lest that the family of a house...crossed a river by a wooden boat...ate a boiled maize ear...grasped unreservedly greasy hands of workers at a factory...transplanted rice seedlings...walk[ed] along a ridge between rice fields"

And thus, "The President was the only great father of the people and peerless great man in history, who devoted his whole life to the people, finding himself among people to bestow warmest affection on them".

I have done many of those things, or functional equivalents, but I doubt that I will be getting encomia worthy of Butler's Lives of the Saints some 15 years after my inevitable demise.

Meanwhile, something for everyone's bookmarks / diaries:
