XO Korea/Core Ideas/Politics

From OLPC

Jump to: navigation, search


It's hard and subtle task to measure political advances of a specific nation. However, we dare measure that of Korea.

Because Korea has experienced several extremely different political environments comparatively in a short period, we think Korea is a good model for children to learn how people is changing their own social environments, particularly a national decision making system.

It seems unrealistic for developing nations to have a democracy system like that of the USA or Swiss in a near future, saying 10~20 years. They are too far to reach for those nations. But, how about Korea? It was one of those developing nations, and is an acceptable goal for them. Korea had been under several military dictatorships just until 20 years ago, and now shows a democracy system, maybe a world best.

XO Korea is now constructing a table to measure political achievements or advances like that of economical ones. The table and methodology will be posted here soon.
