This is an edited version of the S. Brian Willson talk previously posted as http://www.radio4all.net/proginfo.php?id=7448
However, this is from a better recording, and has superior sound quality. It has also been edited to fit in a one hour time slot. It includes an intro and outro.

As always for Willson, a tremendously moving speech, evoking deep ethical involvement of the audience. In the first portion, Willson discusses his own political awakening as a officer in Viet Nam, and how he came to study the situation in Korea. The rest of the talk provides a history of U.S. involvement in Korea not widely understood in the U.S. The latter part of the talk deals with the situation in Korea today, and the ongoing popular uprising in support of reunification. Willson points out that Korea had an uninterrupted 5 millenia of cultural unity, and claims that in that period, Korea demonstrated no history of foreign aggression.
