• Unrest and Fear After the Failure of the Revolution
  • After the Eastern Learning Revolution, the government of Korea grew more corrupt. Benevolence and generosity faded more and more. Government officials became cruel and greedy.
  • Schools and religions lost their true virtue and engendered vice.
  • Confucian scholars valued empty formalities; Buddhism deluded the people; Western religion endeavored to expand its influence; and after the failure of the revolution, there were almost no Eastern Learning followers left.
  • People had fallen into hardship and poverty and had nowhere to turn. Society was overwhelmed with fear and uneasiness.
