나랏일에 니 일, 내 일이 따로 있을 수 없다 (Op-Ed)

노바 스코시아, 핼리팩스의 성채 - 인류가 살아온 흔적 중 빠지지 않는 것이 있다면, 전쟁과 전투의 흔적이다. 인류는 Homo Warrior라 해야 옳은 것일까?

토요토론 청취자 여러분 안녕하십니까? 크리스장입니다.

토요토론을 2주 동안 재방송으로 돌려놓고 소위 휴가라는 것을 다녀왔습니다. 방송중에 예고를 드린다고 드리기는 했는데, 못 들으신 분들도 계신 것 같고, 더군다나 전화가 잘 안 되는 곳이라서 일체 통화마저 불가능해서 지인들 중에는 걱정해주신 분들이 계셔서 한편으로는 고마웠고 또 한편으로는 요즘 세태가 그런 걱정을 하게 하는 것도 있다고는 생각했습니다.

아래 사진 실어놓은 희한한 인사 때문에, 혹 Foul play 가 개입된 사건이라도 있는 것은 아니냐 하는 생각까지 하셨다는 분들이 간혹 있어서 실소를 했습니다. 그런 것은 없구요.

1년에 한번씩은 휴가를 가는 데, 이번에는 캐너더의 노바 스코시아 반도를 다녀왔습니다. 말은 반도ㄴ데, 섬으로 착각될 만큼 환경이 그렇게 돼 있는 곳입니다. Halifax 까지 가서 일대를 일주하는 자동차여행을 했습니다. 가는 길 오는 길이 모두 평화로운 풍경이어서 그동안 현실생활에 얽매었던 자신을 돌아보고 마음을 푸는 좋은 기회가 되기는 했습니다. 캐너더 여행 때마다 느끼는 것은 전화가 불편하다는 점입니다. 미국하고 지척인데도 신기하게도 미국 국경을 넘자말자, 이걸 귀신같이 알고 셀률러 신호가 끊겨서 Roaming으로 전환되는 겁니다. 처음 한번은 그걸 모르고 전화 신나게 쓰고 했는데, 나중에 셀률러 폰 사용명세서를 보고는 기겁을 했었습니다. 그 후, 캐너더로 휴가 떠나면 국경 넘기 전에 아예 Roaming service부터 철통같이 차단을 시켜서 꺼놓고 다니게 되고 그렇게 되니까, 자연 그동안은 완전 불통의 기간을 보내게 됩니다. 대신 휴가가 정말 휴가가 되는 장점은 있더라구요. 하여튼, 걱정해주신 분들한테 애정도 느끼고 고마웠다는 말씀을 드립니다. 면구스러워서 직접 말씀은 드리지 못했지만.

전화는 그랬지만, 호텔에 들어가면 WiFi는 어디서나 되는 거니까, 인터넷으로 틈틈이 불쌍한 우리 고국 대한민국, 그리고 지금 사는 우리나라 미국에 대해서 세상 돌아가는 모습은 여느때처럼 monitor 하면서 지냈습니다. 답답하지만 어쩝니까? 우리네 신세가 그런 걸.

여러가지가 있지만, 그 중에, 한일관계가 파국으로 치닫는 모습, 또 그 여파가 엉뚱하게 반일 패러노이어로 왜곡돼 가고, 여기서 자유한국당이 친일로 몰리는 것을 보면서 충분히 예상은 한 일이지만 안타까왔습니다. 더해서, ‘그놈이 그놈인’ 개각인지 뭔지 하는 써어커스를 보는 것도 괴로왔구요. 특히 존경하는 이영훈교수께서 ‘반일종족주의’라는 책을 출간한 이후, 애국대한민국 진영에서조차 “‘반일 종족주의’라는 책을 읽어보니, 이건 아니다 싶다,’ ‘보수우파들의 기본적인 생각하고도 어긋나는 내용’” – (홍준표), 또 “책을 읽는 동안 심한 두통을 느꼈다” – (장제원), 등 세칭 보수우파로부터도 비토되는 듯한 보도가 나오는 것을 보면서, 마음이 편하지 않았습니다.

문재인 이 자가 문제인 것은 맞는데…

그러나 이내 마음을 정리하고 ‘조금 지켜보자,’ 이런 생각으로 휴가를 보내고 돌아왔습니다.

뭐 이런 것이 아니겠습니까? 홍준표 전대표는 전대표의 생각이 있을 수 있고, 장제원 의원 역시 장제원 의원의 의견이 있는 것이니까, 각자 또 그 의견을 발표할 수 있는 위치에 있는 사람들이니까 당연히 목소리를 냈을 거라는 얘기지요. 보수우파라고 해서, 무슨 일이 나면 무조껀 일치된 생각으로, ‘열중 쉬엇…, 차려잇!’ 이런 부동자세를 취한 뒤, ‘뭣뭣은 이러니까 저럽니닷!’ 이러고 ‘추웅 성!’ 이러고 이구동성을 할 이유가 없는 거구요. 동시에 받아들이는 사람들 역시 이것을 받아들이는 잣대가 각각 다를 수 있는 것인데, 진짜건 가짜건 간에 언필칭 언론매체라는 것들이 끼어들어서, ‘이러니까 이런다, 저러니까 저런다’ 이러고 침소봉대를 한 것에 지나지 않는데, 그런 세태에 휩쓸리지 않으면 되는 거지, 무슨 대수냐? 이렇게 생각하고 보니까, 그런 류 설왕설래가 무슨 대단한 일이냐, 싶은 그런 마음으로 돌아왔고, 조금 지켜보자 이렇게 됐다는 겁니다. 인류역사 6천년에 지고지순, 지고지선은 따지고 보면 한 네사람 성인 정도가 있었다는 얘기고, 그 네사람들 마저 완벽하지 못 해서, 지 몸 하나는 건사하지 못한 헛점이 있어서, 그 중에 Socrates 성인하고 지저스 크라이스트 성인은, 동족들한테 잡혀서 죽임까지 당한 마당이 우리 인류역사라면, 말 다 한 것 아니겠냐 싶어진 거지요. 일희일비할 이유가 없다고 생각했습니다.

다만 홍준표 자유한국당 전대표가 문재인에 대해서 ‘쬬다’라는 표현을 썼다거나, 그보다 앞서, 문재인에 대해서, ‘무얼 노리고 무슨 생각으로 나라를 이렇게 망가뜨리는가. 문재인 대통령은 선조와 고종을 합친 것보다 더 무능하고 무책임하다,’고 목소리를 높였다, 하는 보도를 보고는, 홍준표 전대표의 말의 진의도 느껴졌고, 그로서는 낼 수 있는 최고수준의 용기를 냈다, 하는 생각은 했습니다.

따지고 보면 이런 거겠지요. 홍준표전대표ㄴ 들, 혹은 현 황교안 대표ㄴ들, 문재인이 저러는 이유를 왜 모르겠습니까? 대놓고 말할 수 없을 뿐이지.

홍준표 전대표가 자신의 페이스북에, “두 전직 대통령을 감옥 보내놓고 복수에 혈안이 된 ‘금삼의 피’를 연상시키는 여름날 아침”이라고 운을 떼면서, 문재인이를 피에 굶주린 폭군연산군으로 비유하는 데 대해서는, 저자신의 생각을 다음과 같이 어떤 매체에 올려두었습니다마는…

“원래 배우는 대본에 있는 걸 외워서 말하면 그것으로 족하다. 문어벙이는 외우는 것이 여의치 못 해서 A4 용지를 읽을 뿐이다. 연산군은 연산군인데 이성계 후손 연산군이 아니고, 신영균일 뿐인 셈이다. 그러니 문어벙이는 죄가 없고 대본 써준놈이 죽일 놈인데 그놈이 누구일까? 나는 그 뿌리는 셋중 하나나 혹은 둘, 그도 아니면 셋의 합작품으로 판단한다. 노동당 조직지도부와 통일전선부 그리고 정찰총국이 그셋이다. 홍준표 전 대표는 이런 사실을 알고 있지만 말할 수 없을 뿐이다. 왜냐구? 그 셋이 무서워서? 문어벙이가 무서워서? 아니다. 뭔가 약점이 있어서? 그것도 아니라고 본다. 이 부분이 오늘 대한민국의 비극인데, 홍준표대표의 고민은, 아마, 우매한 국민들에 있을 것이다. 우매한 국민들 때문에 진실을 삼킬 수 밖에 없는 것이다. 그렇게 얘기했다가는 ‘너무 나갔다’고 등을 돌리거든. 무능한 군주들보다 더 무서운 것이 어리석은 유권대중 주권자들이다. 자유민주체제의 약점이지. 북은 그걸 이용하는 것이고. 그뿐이다.”

이런 글을 올려두었지만, 정말, 홍준표ㄴ들, 황교안인들, 왜 그걸 모르겠습니까? 이런 연장선상에서, 홍준표 전대표건, 황교안 현대표건 간에, 이들을 매도하는 사람들이 있지만, 또 사람이 없다는 둥 전혀 사태해결에 도움이 될 수 없는 허언으로 전열을 흩뜨리는 사람들이 적지 않지만, 그런 생각일랑 접고, 일단 뽑아논 지도부를 중심으로 단결하고 지도부에 힘을 실어주는 것이 옳은 태도다, 이런 생각을 합니다. 

이름을 거론해서 안 됐습니다마는, 김평우 변호사같은 이는, “앞으로 대선이 3년이나 남았는데, 어떻게 될 줄 알아서 벌써부터 황교안이냐,” 이러는 것 같은데, 같은 맥락에서 똑같은 말을 되돌려보낸다면, “3년 남은 대선은 여전히 3년 후인데, 왜 그렇게 노심초사, 황교안으로 굳혀질까 초조해 하는 몸짓을 보이시는 겁니까?” 하는 말씀을 드리고 싶습니다. 그때 가서 경선도 있을 것이고, 경선 전에는 후보경선 선거운동도 벌어질 텐데, 지금부터 Smear tactic으로 나올 것은 없지 않느냐 이런 얘깁니다. 모두들 초심으로 돌아갈 필요가 있다고 봅니다. 이때 우리들 뇌리에 새길 일이 딱 하나 있으니, 

“나랏 일에 네 일과 내 일이 따로 있을 수 없다” 하는 한마디라고 믿습니다. 사심이 끼면 될 일도 안 되는 법입니다. 왠만한 다리 하나를 놓는데도, 따로 따로 노는 사람들만 있어서는 애초에 불가능하니까요.

2주동안 재방송으로 때웠지만, 이번 주 토요토론부터는 토요토론도 정상적으로 진행할 생각입니다.

여러분, 그리웠습니다.
