“COREA AS COMMONS” SEMINAR DECEMBER 11

“COREA AS COMMONS: COOPERATIVE CITIZEN-CENTERED CONCEPTS FOR CONNECTING THE COREAS”

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2018

7:00-8:30 PM

@ COMMONS GROUND 3F

A MAJOR SHIFT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN RELATIONS BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH KOREA RECENTLY THAT OPENS UP THE PROSPECT OF INTEGRATION ON A LARGE SCALE IN THE NEAR FUTURE AND OFFERS THE REAL POTENTIAL FOR UNIFICATION. YET THE ENTIRE PROCESS TODAY BEING DRIVEN BY THE LOGIC THAT THE MARKET-ORIENTED, CONSUMPTION-DRIVEN ECONOMY DOMINATED BY FINANCE AND MASSIVE CORPORATIONS IN SOUTH KOREA MUST BE A GODSEND FOR NORTH KOREA. YET THE SOUTH KOREAN MODEL HAS LED TO SERIOUS DEGRADATION OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND CREATED A CRUELLY COMPETITIVE SOCIETY FOR ITS CITIZENS RESULTING IN LOW BIRTHRATES, LOW MARRIAGE RATES, AND HIGH SUICIDE RATES. MUST NORTH KOREA CHOOSE BETWEEN AN EXTRACTIVE ECONOMY CONTROLLED BY ELITE SHAREHOLDERS AND A STAGNANT AND CORRUPT SOCIALIST SYSTEM? OR IS THERE A THIRD WAY POSSIBLE THAT IS BASED ON THE COMMONS, A SHARED ECONOMY? COULD THE FUTURE OF KOREA’S ECONOMY, BOTH NORTH AND SOUTH, SIMULTANEOUSLY HARKEN BACK TO KOREA’S TRADITIONAL CULTURE AND ALSO INTRODUCE THE BEST OF P2P CULTURE FROM AROUND THE WORLD? THE DISCUSSION WILL BE, OF COURSE, ENTIRELY PARTICIPATORY.

최근남북한관계에서큰변화가일어났으며이는가까운장래에대규모의통합가능성을열어주고진정한통일가능성을제공해준다. 그러나오늘날모든과정은한국의금융과대기업이지배하는시장지향적이고소비지향적인경제가북한에대한 ‘신의선물’이어야한다는논리에의해추진되고있다. 게다가한국모델은심각한환경파괴를초래했고낮은출산율과낮은혼인율,높은자살률로인해국민들을잔인한경쟁사회로내몰았다. 북한은엘리트주주들에의해지배되는경제와침체되고부패한사회주의체제사이에서선택해야하는가? 아니면커먼즈에기반을둔세번째방법이있을까? 남북한 모두 포함되는 한국경제의미래가한국의전통문화를되돌아보고동시에전세계에서온최고의 P2P 문화를소개할수있을까? 논의는물론전적으로참여 가능하다.

 ————-

현재 미국에서 강화되고 있는 군국주의 정책과, 트럼프의 핵무기 폐기 정책을 고려해 보았을 때, 엄청난 지정학적 도전에 마주함으로써 우리는 한반도 평화의 실현 가능한 단계에 있습니다.

이 공개토론은 지금 이 순간 해야할 일은 무엇인지, 현재 북한을 향한 접근이 한반도 전 지역의 영원한 평화로 이어질 수 있는 실질적인 평화 조약을 이끌어 낼 수 있을지를 토론할 수 있는 자리가 될 것입니다.

이 모임은 1차 세계대전 종전 100주년 기념일에 진행됩니다. 한국인들에게는 1차 세계대전이 멀게 느껴질지 모르겠지만, 오늘날의 군사력 증강과 끊임없이 이윤을 추구하는 경제 전략들에서 오는 위험들은 유럽의 비극으로 알려진1차 세계대전이 발발된 상황과 무섭게 닮아있습니다.

이에 관심이 있으신 분들이라면 누구나 모임에 참석하셔서 의견을 나누실 수 있습니다. 본 토론이 효과적으로 진행되어, 우리의 방안들이 구체적인 행동으로 전환할 수 있기를 희망합니다.
