Question: The Korean presidential election is six months away. In my opinion, Korea’s political system is dominated by two huge parties. And those big parties are already subject to a power elite, and work for the elite. They are seen as forces trying to deceive the people decoying them as if they are working for the people. As a breakthrough in this situation, is there any possibility that a third political force will be formed instead of them. Regarding the presidential election next year, which has an important meaning for the future of Korea, how can the people choose a leader who serves the people, who is not linked to the dark forces or the power elite?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Being the Open Door for Planet Earth.
Well, the simple reality in most countries is that you have an established elite who have influence on the political process and the political apparatus, including the existing political parties. It is, in all countries, desirable to have more political diversity in terms of more than two political parties, so that there can be a different voice.
When you have two parties, as you see in many nations, they tend to polarize into two opposing extremes, whether it is liberal or conservative, or whatever you want to call it. It is desirable in all countries that there is more of an openness, and more of a support for different parties that can provide a different voice, often if they are more centrist and seek a greater balance between the ideological extremes.
However, in many cases, you need to accept that this is not realistic in the time span before the election. It is certainly not realistic that a new party would emerge, and that that party would become dominant in Korean politics. You need to simply accept that for the time being, there will be a certain situation, and then you make the calls on this as an ascended master student, or if you feel so inclined, you participate in the political process in some way or another. You need to be very careful that you do not fall into the trap, which we see some of our students go into, of going into these very polarized political positions.
You cannot realistically say that both of the big parties in Korea are completely taken over by the power elite and only work for the power elite and are not working for the interests of the people. There are well meaning and aware people in all aspects of the political process, both in Korea and other nations. And you need to make the calls that these people will be empowered and emboldened to speak out with a more balanced voice. You can also make the calls as we have given invocations for the exposure of the business conglomerates in Korea and their influence. And this can gradually have an effect where more and more people become aware of this and become aware of the need for a new kind of political party. Ultimately, a new kind of political party cannot emerge until there is a critical mass of people who are ready for it. It is again, a matter of raising the collective consciousness gradually.
Many times we see our students take our teachings, and reason that now they see what is wrong, and here is the ideal of what should happen. And in many cases, this ideal that these students create in their minds, is very, very far above the current situation. And therefore, perhaps it could never be realized, or perhaps it will take a very long time for it to be realized. We encourage you instead, to do what you can do in the current situation: make the calls you can make, take part in the process at whatever level it is at.
You realize that there are many students, throughout the different dispensations we have given, who have taken our teachings about dark forces and fallen beings and then reason that the entire political system is so corrupt, that there is no point in going into it and trying to do anything to improve it. But this is exactly what the fallen beings want you to do. Because if you withdraw from the process, then there certainly is not anything that can be done, whereas you cannot know what could have been done, if you took part in the process. Where you can say that is that if nobody takes part in the process, then only the power elite is left to rule. And you can certainly see many examples where people have had an influence on the political process, have managed to make government change their course. And that is why when you have a democracy, you need to accept that you have a democracy and use whatever means are available even if they are not ideal to make improvements.
