“Exploitation, Consumerism, and Eco-Justice“
Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Ph.D.
Globalism, colonialism, and consumerism have caused unjust suffering (han) for the earth’s exploited peoples and the exploited lands. To reverse this tragedy, we need to work for a just, sustainable planet, to imagine new models of development and to rediscover the inner resources needed to empower and sustain our spirits.
