ABSTRACT

This paper aims to understand the characteristics of the current disputes between the right political group and the ruling political party. Last year some people who had performed the left student movement in the 1980s openly proclaimed their ideological change from the left position to the right and formed the civic group called "new right". The new right group named the ruling political party and the Roh Muhyun government as "for the north, against the U.S." group and Roh Muhyun version of the proletariat dictatorship. And then they said they would orient the "small government - large market" to guard the freedom. It raised the so-called ideological dispute between the left and the right group. This paper shapes the new ideological map of the right, left, and the middle to analyze the ideological disputes. The right orient the marketism and hierarchy (growth-oriented), the left orient the statism and equality(redistribution-oriented), the middle orient the marketism and equality. The major findings are that the ruling party and the current government are located in the middle in terms of the ideological map. The "new right" group's criticism against the government is only political strategy to gain their own political support. This type of political dispute is useless in the point of political development and national interest.
