An international lawyer Lee Jie Hie boasted that “I will get rid of the political gulag of North Korea in three years” An youngster's grand declaration in her late 20's looks like promising. When I look at the Kim Jung Il's haggard face, I get the impression that her prophesy(?) could become a reality. Experts say, the unification may happen unexpectedly and very quickly after Kim's death.
There is a national mission before the impending unification. Namely we must awake the national conscience and realize that the population of the Republic of Korea does not only include the 50 million population of the South but also include the 20 population of the North. Article 3 and 4 of our constitution state that. "The territory of the Republic of Korea shall consist of the Korean peninsula and its adjacent islands(Article 3. Territory)"and "The Republic of Korea seeks unification and formulates and carries out a policy of peaceful unification based on the principles of freedom and democracy(Article 4 (Unification, Peace)"
According to these articles, we should seel to liberate North Koreans from oppression and dictatorship by peaceful means as soon as possible. We should mobilize our efforts to accelerate the expected fall of the North Korean regime. If the regime does fall like it did in Germany in 1989, the North should be absorbed by the South and we should help North Koreans to rebuild not only the economy but also their society.
If South Korean people proceed the disgusting hypocrisy donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to the fake church in Pyoung Yang, keeping silence about the violation of human rights committed not only in political gulag but also in all of the country, we may live in confusion, chaos and agony for a long time.
