The Moonies in action

Thanks to John Gorenfeld for the link...

As if controlling the Grand Nationals and the US Republicans weren't enough, the Moonies created their own well-organized political party for last week's South Korean general election. The name: Family Party for Peace and Unity.

One of its platforms was the restoration of the primitive Confucian family code, giving women and unmarried adults no rights whatsoever. It had recently been weakened.

A British guy in Busan has some more info, including info on the family code. Busan, BTW, is what San Francisco would be like, if it were hardcore conservative.
