the personal story appeal and 진정성 

A funny thing at u.s. social justice orgs is the recent trend towards the personal.. strikingly similar to the politics of 진정성 in south korea. But in korea this approach was deemed a liberal failed agitational device that didn’t really bring about change in the consciousness of the people-passion without a clear objective. People who were looked at this approach with skepticism are calling for a return to politics proper and class rhetoric that addresses everyday concerns of poor people.
