권낙기 long term political prisoner of conscience

Today, I met a long term political prisoner of conscience. For violating the National Security Law, he was imprisoned at 26, released at 44. Those that kept him, did all to extinguish his spirit. He never renounced his beliefs.

“A person is not born; a person is made. Days, weeks, months, years, they made me into a person.”

The moments we are given are precious. The way we live them make us. How will we live them?

A New Concept of Efficiency from Marta Harnecker’s “21st Century Socialism and Latin America”

“A company, it seems, only produces goods or services as it transforms raw materials into products. But that is not the whole truth; something else is transformed in the production process – the workers: the men and women who, as they turn raw materials into products, either develop themselves as human beings or become deformed.”
