“We must share a vision for unification before we talk about methodology.”[Seoul newspaper]
Dr. Hyun Jin Moon focuses more on a vision for a unified country, rather than a methodology for unification in his recent book “Korean Dream” (publisher:소담). Dr. Hyun Jin Moon founded the Global Peace Foundation in 2009, which has expanded into an international peace movement.
The book goes beyond the pain of division and suggests what we need to prepare to achieve the dream of unification are the values and vision of unity.
Dr. Moon said, “This book is not about the process and policies of unification. Unification should be preceded by clarifying a vision that can act as a compass. In other words, we should consider and ignite a passion for our shared history, common identity and destiny as a Korean people.
Instead of just the physical integration of the South and North, Dr. Moon insists on unification based on the vision of Hongik ingan. The term “Korean Dream” is based on founding spirit of hongik ingan. Korean Dream is about the Korean peninsula, Northeast Asia, and building a nation that contributes to the development of humanity humanity’s future and global peace.
Seoul National University Honorary Professor, Park Sae Il, commented, “There are many arguments about the methodology for unification, but this book talks about the vision of unification, the underlying, unseeing philosophy and idea of unification.”
