Amnesty International misguided
Denouncing the South Korean government's imprisonment of "conscientious objectors" to military service, Amnesty International has recently called for an immediate review of "alternative service" instead of uniformed conscription.

I would like to take issue with Henry Seggermans article, A historical context for ISIS (Korea Times, April 9, 2015). While there are some interesting points in his opinion piece that deserve debate, he has got his basic facts wrong on Syrian ..

Korea's driving culture
Korea has shown remarkable growth in auto production and sales over the last three decades. Korea ranks 10th in auto production since 2005, and Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors combined sales stand in the global top five since 2010. Their combined sa..

Native English teachers and Korean students
Shocking as it is that a female English teacher from South Africa openly poisoned students in a Korean school, it may be one indicator of some long-standing racist sentiment held by some. It is not something that Korean people can change, but it is..

The future of humankind
By ironic coincidence, the very informative article titled: "The future of force" by professor Joseph S. Nye from Harvard University was published (Feb. 16) during the week in which a draft resolution for the 70th anniversary of the end of the Worl..

Need for more democratic education
I am proud of studying at one of the Republic of Koreas many esteemed universities. The pool of knowledgeable faculty members as well as talented students and researchers is an eternal source of inspiration. Acknowledging the great potential and ..

Vigilance against abusers
"The Interview" has truly stimulated much ado. Centered around a CIAplot to assassinate Kim Jong-un and usher in a new democratic order, the satirical film has called on many to revisit the realms of freedom of speech.

Abolish early graduation policy in high school
Science high schools have intensive education curricula, students who attend these can graduate in two years. The policy has advantages, in that students have more time than other students. But I think there are also disadvantages, so early graduat..

Low interest rates and entrepreneurship
Monetary and financial policies dominate economic conditions. The former remains at the heart of focus today as the Bank of Korea (BOK) struggles to strengthen its identity as an effective institution insular from political clout.

Need for more attention to unpopular sports
Do you know who Kim Hyung-jun is?

About silence on OPCON
In the Oct. 30 editorial titled, "Silence on OPCON," the South Korean government's decision to put off its takeover from the United States of what critics describe as "military sovereignty" is depicted as "dereliction of duty" by President Park Geu..

The uncanny dichotomy
Blaming "foreign forces" whenever calls for democracy erupt is a classic pattern of denunciation demonstrated by one-party states or de facto totalitarian regimes such as China. It sees everything in either black or white; good or evil, with us or ..

WWF's correct message to the world
I was very happy to see the picture of the three WWF representatives holding the newly released Korean and English versions of the "Living Planet Report 2014" in the Oct. 2 edition of The Korea Times. Thank you. I was hoping to read an article as w..

Prohibition of marijuana
Im gratified to see Thursday's Korea Times marijuana story positioned where it belongs, under a front page headline. I hope you will follow it up by demonstrating the kind of editorial courage that, in other dailies from other times and places ha..

What does it mean when US Post office recognizes Dokdo?
What does it mean when US Post office recognizes Dokdo? I have been fascinated by the beauty of Dokdo for many years: the rocks, the shapes, the colors, and the inherent splendor. As a teacher, I have led discussions on this topic in class and it a..

Preventing next war in Mideast
There have now been three wars between Gaza and Israel in the past six years. If nothing is done to stop the protagonist - the Islamic resistance army more commonly known as Hamas - then the only certain future for the area is that there will be an..

Running to extremes
With regard to an editorial titled "Thanks, World Cup," I saw how the World Cup brought changes to the Koreans that might seem meaningful. However, I could not neglect the traits of the people that this sports event revealed. It seems everything is..
