Together we stand, divided we fall | North Korea

Single-hearted unity is the mainstay of Juche-oriented revolution and almighty weapon!

This is the text on the back of the card, most likely a translation of the text in Korean. But what does it mean? Juche? The North Korean calendar or Juche calendar, named after the Juche ideology, is the system of year numbering used in North Korea.

Juche means something like self-reliance or self-dependence. Juche is the official state ideology of North Korea, described by the government as Kim Il-sung's "original, brilliant and revolutionary contribution to national and international thought". It says that an individual is "the master of his destiny", that the North Korean masses are to act as the "masters of the revolution and construction", and that by becoming a self-reliant and strong nation one can achieve true socialism.
