Year of the Monkey 2016 is ending in the darkness. Factory lights are turned off one after another. The common people who have to shiver due to the increased price for a tray of eggs are leading dry and tough lives. Heavy seas of protectionism and hegemonism are predicted outside the country. The government is experiencing vacuum state from the impeachment of the president. In 1987, we put a stop to authoritarianism and dictatorship. But despite democratization, democracy could not fully bloom. It's because we couldn't get rid of the vestige of development age. After voting for the president every 5 years, the nation trusted the country to handle everything. The country leading its nation which is the fantasy of nationalism could not be broken. The country could not save the young lives who were trapped inside the Sewol ferry. It couldn't protect the nation from MERS. It could not break the chain of the cozy relations between politics and business but nailed the hearts of youths who went to interviews looking for jobs with "dirt spoon" label. It's confused right in front of the Fourth Industrial Revolution tsunami.
I want an atmosphere.
I want an atmosphere where you and I, who are extremely different can discuss the innumerably different things of the world.
