[Hankyoreh, September 20 2008] [Editorial] The debate about Roh’s website

Former President Roh Moo-hyun has opened an “Internet debate site” called “Democracy 2.0.” In his introduction to it he writes that the “key values of mature democracy are debate and compromise, and we must develop communication in civil society to promote those. I’ve created this site in the hope it creates civil space for dialogue that is free and has depth.”

Close aides of Roh denied that Roh is maneuvering to re-enter politics, saying he will not even be directly participating in the online debates at the site.
