The Two Koreas: War or Peace?
Thursday, October 12, 2017

No Registration Required
Korea, once called “The Land of the Morning Calm” and “The Lamn Bearer of the Golden Age of Asia,” is now divided into two enemy countries, South and North, for the past 67 years – since the Korean War. The Two Koreas have become vastly different and incompatible; the South, viewed as a model of a modern, successful, democratic country risen from war, and the North, the Stalinist, rogue state, perceived to be a pariah of the world and the tyranny of the weak. What has driven North Korea to this lonely and desperate state? What does North Korea really fear? Are there other ways to deal with North Korea besides sanctions and isolation? Do we continue to despise them? How can we reach reconciliation and peace? Can we rebuild a unified nation on the Korean peninsula, or is it a lost cause?
Refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact Yangnim Kurz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
