2-(2) Ahn, from a mentor of 2030 to influential ‘Politainer’
Ahn has been recognized by public as a mentor of 2030 for a long time. It was because of his successful life as a CEO of Ahnlab and social donator. He was originally a doctor. However, he created a vaccine program against computer viruses during his work. After that he gave up his life as a doctor to focus more on making vaccines, though doctor is one of the best jobs in Korea. He built a computer vaccine company named Ahnlab. He not only contributed a lot to his company but also tried to keep his business principles. Even he did not sold Ahnlab to a huge company in California to protect their officers but shared its stocks with them. Therefore, people in their 20s and 30s recognized

There were 10 images framed by media on him: 1) A man of virtue, 2) A total stranger, 3) Trustable or not, 4) A man with snobbish attitude, 5) Ideologist, 6) Leader, 7) Capable or not, 8) A man of populism, 9) Political judge, 10) Mysticism. (Lim, 2012). Although there existed some ideological differences in choosing frames, media of both sides mostly chose 3) Trustable or not, 7) Capable or not, 9) Political judge in common. Taking it to account that candidate’s credibility and capacity are always mentioned in election times, we can realize that discussion on his role as a political judge was …show more content…
Then, why is it too hard for other small parties to be an influential third party, though voters desperately need it? There are many small parties such as Green Party, Justice Party and Labor Party in Korea, but only Justice Party got into National Assembly with 5 seats. (National Assembly, 2015) There are basically 2 reasons. To begin with, they failed to build a strong image. Most of the small parties do not have any strong leadership. Especially in case of Green Party, it emphasizes grassroots democracy starting from rank-and-file members. “Party is an organization to a purpose, so it is important how it is understood by public and rank-and-file members. However, the Green Party did not give such margins in the general election.” (Ha, 2012) Even some parties did wrong image-making strategy. The United Progressive Party is a good example of this. Their color was too red to be misunderstood by public as a supporter of North Korea and finally was dispersed by law. Moreover, they do inevitably have small supporter base. It is mainly because they do not have any regional supporter base. Most of them were created in 2000s, after two major parties stabilized their regional bases. In fact, Labor Party was founded in 1998, taking account of their several name changes. Justice Party and Green Party were created in 2012. They tend to focus on specific issues, while two major parties seem to be catch-all

    Once bills got passed by committee, they get additions that inexperienced legislatures did not catch. Some of those bills were written by lobbyist and they just get past along and become laws. Term limits in California did not prevent career politicians, because the politicians just do office hopping. There is limited expertise in the legislative branch so there are bad committees and poor oversight of state agencies. The term limits did not give the legislatures enough time to gain experience (Jacobs, P. 1990).…

    It does not expand the number of representatives in total, but rather redistributes them to make them seem more representative of the population. The problem with this idea is that it only eliminates a lot of congressional districts and does not actually give more representation. It does not give more representatives to the same area, which is crucial if you want to maximize representation. Another problem with this idea is that it solves almost nothing. For example, a state with three congressional districts that has two republicans and one democrat in office combines all the districts into one super district.…

    Many loyal party voters feel as if Obama did not do enough to change the nation, especially when dealing with issues such as legalization of marijuana and immigration reform.

    The biggest weakness that Comcast has is the fact that many view them as a company that will do whatever it can to churn a profit without putting the customer’s wants and needs first. Others just think they are evil. As a way to fix that, they changed their name to Xfinity, so people would forget how bad the name “Comcast” was, but they are still working out the bad publicity they get sometimes, especially with their poor customer service. Another rather large weakness that stuck out was how Comcast offers landline phone options in some of their packages. As discussed in class, not many people even have a landline unless they are forced to due to low cell phone service at their homes.…
