The Juche idea clarified that the world develops in the direction of serving man and thus discovered the law of domination and transformation of the world by man.
General Secretary Kim Jong Il said.
“The greater man’s creative role grows in transforming nature, the higher his position as the master of the world rises, and the better the material world surrounding him is changed to serve him.”
The world develops in the direction of serving man more and more. This is the law that shows the main direction of domination and transformation and development of the world by man.
That the world develops in the direction of serving man is, in one word, that the world develops in the direction of better realization of man’s independence.
Why, then, does the world develop in this direction?
That is because the realization of independence is the purpose of man’s activities and because man’s demand for independence constantly enhances.
The direction of transformation and development of the world is defined by the purpose of activities of man, the only dominator and transformer. The main purpose of man’s activities is to realize independence. For the purpose of realizing independence, man conducts creative activities to transform nature and society. In this process, the world develops in the direction of realizing man’s independence. In other words, the world develops in the direction of developing the position of man as master of the world.
The main purpose of human activities for independence cannot be attained on a high level at once. His demand for independence corresponds to his creative ability. With the development of his creative ability, he is not satisfied with his position in the world. He gradually raises higher demand for independence and meets it. On each stage of historical development, man raises higher demand for independence than the degree of realizing his independence and meets it. This process continues down through generations, and in this process the world develops inevitably in the direction of realizing his independence.
This kind of development of the world finds its concentric expression in the expansion of the scope and intensity of nature that serves man.
The scope and target of nature that serves man firstly expand in space.
Man has advanced further on the earth and in the sea and developed underground project and flew through atmosphere and attraction sphere into the outer space. At present man can use not only surface of the earth but also tens of thousand-meter-deep underground and underwater of the sea. The outer space can now serve man in refining highly pure metal and alloy and producing medication in no-germ state, which had been impossible on the earth.
Man created artificially the ultra low, super high pressure, super high temperature state from nature to transform and use structure, form, function and quality of matter. For example, he can convert gas into liquid and further into solid, non metal into metal and artificially produce diamond and high-intensity matter. And he can artificially created plasma, “the 4th state of matter” in which positive ions and electrons move arbitrarily to melt metal with high melting point and make precise processing by the help of plasma flame of 3,000 – 50,000 degrees centigrade.
Today in the 21st century, information science and technology leaped and people produced and used automatic control machine systems such as computers that precisely replace human perception, memory and formal logic thinking and robots that replace human physical labor. Like this, the scope and targets of nature that serve man become bigger and bigger.
This scope and targets expand in space and also intensify in depth.
For example, man produced hybrid and now produces new variety through the use of DNA on the basis of the development of gene engineering. And now he can artificially synthesis protein and make large production of insulin, growth hormone and interferon which had been available in small quantity in nature.
This tells that the scope and targets of nature that serve man grow in scale and depth.
In the replacement of slave-hold society with feudal one, human subjugation relations had not been eliminated. In bourgeois revolution against feudal system, private ownership over the means of production and exploitative relations of man by man had not been eliminated, only changing the form of exploitation, but they are eliminated in socialist revolution against capitalist system. Unlike the change of exploitative society, in the transition from capitalism to socialism, the reorganization of society came to the fore to be settled but after the establishment of socialist system, the remaking of nature and the remoulding of man comes to the fore and as socialism advances the transformation of society, nature and man become intensified. This proves that scope and targets of society that serve man expand and intensify.
Likewise, the development of the world in the direction of serving man is inevitable and this is the main law of the development of the present world by man.
In order to understand this law, it is necessary to mention one thing more.
At present, in a global scale, the phenomena of destruction of ecological environment become serious and social instability and social evils such as murder, robbery, drug and alcohol addict and prostitution are rampant, driving the people to horror and disaster.
Over these facts, some people claim that the world has been converted into the one confronting man, trying to deny the law of the development of the world in the direction of serving man.
This is, however, in vain. The destruction of ecological environment and social instability and social evils are abnormal phenomena caused by the fact that the domination and transformation of the world were not properly done in the direction of serving man. Accordingly, this cannot be reason to negate the law of the development of the world in the direction of serving man.
As long as the main purpose of human activities is to realize independence and man’s demand for independence constantly enhances, the world will inevitably develop in the direction of serving man.
