Chapter 4 outlines the organization of the three rural movements and especially introduces Chosŏn nongminsa, which was the main arm of Ch’ŏndogyo to design and carry out its rural campaign. This chapter also analyzes the three organizations’ criticisms of urbanization and industrial capitalism and their support for a pastoral life, which they believed promised the cultivation of personality, social harmony, authentic wealth, a lasting national identity, and a sacred life.
