[Aobadai Life] Probably Japan Cannot Evade Rearmament

As I have often pointed out, it would be natural that future is like what is written in this article.  People who have listened to my lectures since early times know that I had called attention to this kind of stuff long before. 

Being short of time, I have provided various kinds of information through Unity Design (now: Shanti Phula) to let as many people as possible know it since March 11, 2011.
Unless you acquire intelligence not to be deceived by false information and sensitivity to discriminate between truth and falsehood, you will be manipulated by bad guys as they wish.

Piecing together all information I have provided, you will understand that the future direction I have shown you is mostly true.
I do want to avoid war by all means.  Some of you may remember what I talked about in a lecture held in Fukuoka long time ago: “Your son may get drafted.”  Reading this article now, you will understand that I did not say it in joke at all.

Probably Japan Cannot Evade Rearmament

As I have to write this kind of text on the anniversary of the end of World War II, I have mixed feelings about it.  I feel that considering the trend around Japan, neo nationalism has gained power and remilitarization cannot be avoided.

Basically, looking back to history, when a country suffers depression, nationalism gains power and the country tends to be exclusivist.  Some of typical examples are the Nazis and prewar Japan.  The bigger mistrust toward the established political party becomes, the more greatly people lean towards new political clout, military and religion which insist on their radical stance.  As a result, minority community in society will be targeted.

In Japan now, the fever of Ishin-no-kai (Osaka Restoration Group) led by Osaka Governor Hashimoto has gained momentum.  However, regrettably, antipathy to South Korea, which itself has problems and often sees demonstrations occur, may be reaching boiling point.  Their view on what they consider power, including vested interest related to the pachinko industry, cult religions and conspiracy theories, seems to be horrifyingly similar to the hostile view of Jews by the Nazis.  As seen in the London Olympic Games, South Korea in question does anything for Japan-bashing; not only anti-Japanese education but also acquittal of anti-Japanese riots.  And now President of South Korea Lee-Myung-bak made remarks that Japanese Emperor can visit Korea if he begs forgiveness.  As you know, the Emperor is a holy existence like religion for Japanese and the Japanese public exploded with wrath.  Additionally, as automakers and home appliance makers have been severely beaten by Korean counterparts, for which Japan is to be blamed, many Japanese feel quite bitter about their rise.

Under these circumstances, a Hong Kong private organization landed on the Senkaku islands on the anniversary of the end of the World War II.  I wonder what the spirits of the war dead might think in the heaven on this August 15.  The very thought of it makes me sad and miserable.  As Japan was insulted on the anniversary, nationalism of Japanese will inevitably gain power.

However, what China and Korea want to avoid most for their security should be Japan’s rearmament.  Their excessive provocation seems to worsen the situation.

If the Ishin-no-kai holds a casting vote in the next election, they might take tough measures in foreign policy such as rushing into rearmament, with such forceful attitude for good or ill as seen in Osaka.

The LDP is considering restoration of conscription.  It is the only thing I do not want to be realized.
