Let’s examine True Mother’s approach to the unification of Korea. Her speech barely mentioned North Korea. She talked about God working through religious leaders to advance the Blessing and true family movement. What was her plan? Let me frame the picture.
In North Korea we find external communism. True Father also identified what I call internal communism. This “internal communism” are variants sometimes called “neo-Marxism” or “cultural Marxism.”
True Father identified what I call internal communism.
A quick Internet search tells us that “Neo-Marxism is a loose term for various twentieth-century approaches that amend or extend Marxism and Marxist theory” and “cultural Marxism is a revolutionary leftist idea that traditional culture is the source of oppression in the modern world.” These brief definitions are helpful. The key point is that “internal communism” is not an organization as much as an idea and a spirit of the times. True Father never attributed its source to any one entity, as if it were a conspiracy. Multiple actors advance it with multiple motivations.
They are trying to build a social revolution toward a secular utopia.
True Father summarizes its essence as thinking in terms of, and struggling on behalf of, the benefit, salvation and/or happiness believed to be due oneself or one’s group. This “individualism” can be practiced by nations as nationalism, to families as tribalism, and in the name of traditions and histories, as religious bigotry, racism and sexual liberation. Marxist-Leninist states display external communism. True Father’s prophecy of today’s struggles had to do with “internal communism”:
“Communism does its utmost to destroy democracy and Christian-based family values. They lure the young with drugs and stir them with anti-authority values in order to bring disharmony to family life. They also alienate men and women from each other. …They are trying to build a social revolution toward a secular utopia. The Communists are changing the face of Christianity. …We must realize that the hippies and yuppies, corruption, drugs, and so on are all part of Communist world strategies. In particular, free sex, homosexuality, the lesbian movement and other such phenomena destroy human rights and dignity. …In this way, Christian society is ruined. The Communist arrow is shattering our civilization.”
True Father never called for war against Communism or hurting Communists. They, like all human beings, are seeking love. So he created the path of love, of global change through sacrifice and compassion. And that is exactly the path True Mother followed in the World Cup Stadium.
