The first of three programs dealing with the suspicious death of Seoul (South Korea) mayor and prospective presidential candidate Park Won-soon, this broadcast chronicles the many powerful political interests whose feathers were ruffled by his activities. In addition, Park Won-soon was a trailblazer for several different aspects of progressive politics.
In the series, we present key aspects of the Japanese conquest and colonization of Asia, including and especially Korea. This history is fundamental to a serious understanding of Asian power politics. Significantly, with the incorporation of the spectacular wealth of the Japanese Golden Lily loot into the American and global financial systems, the U.S. “signed off” on Japanese war crimes committed prior to, and during, World War II. This history will be presented in greater detail in the second and third programs in the series.
(FTR #’s 427, 428, 446, 451, 501, 688, 689, 1106, 1107 & 1108 deal with the subject of the Golden Lily program successfully implemented by the Japanese to loot Asia.)
With Park Won-soon being a possible presidential candidate in 2022, there are a number of aspects of his political history and agenda that would have made him the target of the deep political forces stemming from Golden Lily and before:
1.–He made enemies from the corrupt corporate elite of Korea: ” . . . . The People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy, a civic group he helped found, has become a leading watchdog on corrupt ties between the government and big businesses, launching investigations and lawsuits that have often led to convictions of business tycoons on corruption charges. The group was involved in the lawsuits that led to the 2009 conviction of Lee Kun-hee, chairman of Samsung, on charges of embezzlement and tax evasion. . . .”
2.–He was instrumental in effecting reforms in numerous areas: ” . . . . In his nine years as Seoul’s mayor, Mr. Park, drove an endless series of policy initiatives. He lowered college tuitions, installed a free Wi-Fi connection in public parking lots and municipal parks, and converted part-time workers in city-financed corporations to full-time employees. . . .”
3.–His criticism of Japanese policy vis a vis its colonization of Korea made him an enemy of the deep political Korean/American/Japanese fascist milieu deriving from Golden Lily. ” . . . . He has also been an outspoken critic of Japan’s colonial-era policies toward Korea, including the mobilization of Korean and other women as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers. . . .”
4.–His push for reconciliation with the North would have made his possible presidency anathema to South Korean and U.S. national security policymakers: ” . . . . Protesters have often picketed City Hall, calling Mr. Park a ‘commie’ for promoting reconciliation with North Korea and for his past opposition to the deployment of troops from South Korea to Iraq. . . .”
5.–Note, also, that (as touched on above) Park was a major reformer on behalf of women’s rights in South Korea: ” . . . . As a lawyer, he won a host of landmark cases for press freedoms and women’s rights. After winning the country’s first sexual harassment case, he was honored with the ‘women’s rights award’ in 1998 from the nation’s top women’s groups. . . . He also pushed to make Seoul’s streets safer at night for women, by deploying escorts for women walking in deserted alleys where crimes had taken place. He also introduced a smartphone app for women that alerts the police when they face danger at night. Female ‘sheriffs’ also check public toilets for women in Seoul to find and destroy hidden sex cams. . . .”
6.–Lastly, Mr. Won-soon filed suit against the 12 heads of the Shincheonji fascist mind control cult. The cult has operational and doctrinal overlap with the Unification Church. ” . . . . Kim Kun-nam, one of the two authors of Shintan, which can be called the first doctrine of Shincheonji, is from the Unification Church. Kim also served as a lecturer in the Unification Church. It is no exaggeration to say that Shincheonji doctrine developed on the basis of what Kim made. . . .”
7.–In FTR #1118, we examined the Shincheonji cult in connection with the Covid-19 outbreak. The cult was the major apparent vector for introducing the virus into South Korea. With a branch in Wuhan, we have speculated that it may have been a vector for China as well. Might that suit have been a contributing factor to Park Won-soon’s death?
Despite his life-long professional efforts on behalf of women, Park Won-soon was charged by a secretary (anonymous to date) with having sexually harassed her. Immediately following the lodging of that accusation, he allegedly took his life.
In the context of Park’s alleged suicide, recall a strategic synopsis of the counterintelligence applications of the #MeToo stratagem, presented in FTR #1001:
” . . . . From the standpoint of counter-intelligence analysis, the #MeToo phenomenon signals a superb tactic for political destruction: a) infiltrate a woman into the entourage or professional environment of a male politician, media or business figure targeted for destruction; b) have her gain the trust of her political target and his associates (the cardinal rule for a good double agent is “make yourself indispensable to the effort”); c) after sufficient passage of time, surface the allegations of sexual harassment; d) IF the opportunity for actual sex play and/or flirtation presents itself, take advantage of it for later use as political/rhetorical ammunition; e) with accusers having the tactical luxury of remaining anonymous, the operational template for a form of sexual McCarthyism and the precedent-setting contemporary manifestation of a sexual Star Chamber is very real–the operational similarities between much of the #metoo movement and the Salem Witch Trials should not be lost on the persevering observer [Park Won-soon’s accuser has had the benefit of anonymity–D.E.]; f) proper vetting of the accusations is absent in such a process; g) for a public figure in the U.S., proving deliberate defamation (libel/slander) is extremely difficult and litigation is very expensive–the mere surfacing of charges is enough to taint someone for life and the exorbitant expense of litigation is prohibitive for all but the wealthiest among us. . . .”
In the audio of the program, Mr. Emory discusses various scenarios in which a secretary/administrative assistant could have subverted Mr. Won-soon’s situation. Weaponized feminism employs a dynamic in which accused males are presumed guilty until proven innocent. The proving of innocence is exceedingly difficult in alleged instances of sexual harassment–there are generally no witnesses to, nor audio and/or video recordings of the incident in question.
In light of the powerful political, economic and historical dynamics challenged by Park Won-soon, the possibility that he was yet another victim of weaponized feminism should be taken into account. We bet that it won’t.
Other topics highlighted in this broadcast include:
1.–The background of Harry B. Harris, Jr., the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea. Harris was former “head of the United States Pacific Command”–a very important and powerful individual. He also had been the commander of the Guantanamo detention center–one of a number of counter-terror assignments in his military career. Like anti-submarine warfare (another element of his military CV), counter-terror is an intelligence function. We wonder if Harris is either ONI and/or CIA, and playing a key role in the full-court press against China.
2.–An account of the Comfort Women, one of the focal points of Park Won-soon’s criticism of the Japanese colonial occupation of Korea.
3.–The beginning of an account of Japan’s centuries long plunder of Korea–a topic that will be covered at greater length in the following program. Note that this element of analysis involves the Black Dragon and Black Ocean societies, two of the patriotic and ultra-nationalist societies that appear to be the forerunner of the Unification Church.
