Those Who Do Not Remember the Lessons of History Are Doomed to Repeat Them . . . Santayana.
THE JAPANESE YOUTH HAVE AWAKENED TO THE DANGERS OF A MILITARIST DICTATORSHIP USING THE UMBRELLA OF THE CONSTITUTION TO WIELD POWER ONLY IN THE END REPLACE IT WITH A MILITARY DICTATORSHIP OF THE CABINET, EXACTLY AS THE NAZI PARTY DID IN ITS RISE TO POWER.
Alarmed by the Special Secrecy Law, officially the Act on the Protection of Specially Designated Secrets (SDS) (特定秘密の保護に関する法律 Tokutei Himitsu no Hogo ni kansuru Hōritsu?), Act No. 108 of 2013, that was proposed by the Abe cabinet, and approved by the Security Council on October 25, 2013, and thence approved by the National Diet on December 6, 2013, it was promulgated on December 13, 2013, and came into force one year later on December 14, 2014, a group of 400 Japanese students and professors formed what was called the Special Emergency Action for Liberal Democracy (SEALD). It just held a protest in front of the Japanese Diet to demand the dropping of the bill passed by the lower house allowing the government to send Japanese citizens to wars outside of the Japanese sovereign territory, euphemistically, to die fighting for the next Japanese empire that is, held on August 30, 2015, Sunday, in Tokyo. Hoping for at most the attendance of 100,000 supporters, the protest movement garnered the foot vote of at least 120,000 Japanese citizens, with estimates of up to 250,000 Japanese citizens. But, they were ignored by the Western press (so-called democratic press, that is), while Japan's version of the German Enablement Act of 1933 goes forward to a vote by the Upper House by September 14, 2015 (60 days after its passage by the lower house).
The turnout on August 30, 2015, exceeded the expectations of the organizers by an estimated 120%, and shows that the Japanese citizenry is awakening to the fact that unless THEY THE CITIZENS ACT VIGOROUSLY, they and their loved ones would be sent to their deaths in battlefields far from home, not to defend their families and kin from death and destruction, as is their natural duty, but to inflict death and destruction of those defending their motherlands from the same Japanese government that now is greedy to grab their warm bodies for forced conscription going forward, in very short order. This truly grassroots movement is not even much known or supported in China, because it has been acting on its own initiative and resources, as a true citizens' movement should be doing. But it is time that the world, including China, pays notice to this group of brave Japanese youth, demanding their right to live to a ripe old age in their country in peace and in prosperity, and China should indeed tell the Japanese people that unless China is attacked by Japan, China will never go to war with the Japanese people. However, if Japan does attack China, then in self-defense it cannot guarantee it will not to have to respond accordingly. China should openly support PEACE IN JAPAN, to counter the military rhetoric of its openly Nazi-admiring politicians in power.
Every country needs a national secrecy law, but the one that Japan passed in December 2013 has practically no limits on what the government can designate a special state secret, and therefore subjects the entire population to arrest on anything they say or do, which violates Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 that states "no one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile". And since the Post-War Constitution of Japan guarantees all its citizens their basic human rights, this "law" is fundamentally unconstitutional.
IN THE SPIRIT THEN OF PEACE, AS GUARANTEED BY THE POST-WAR CONSTITUTION OF JAPAN, WE WELCOME THE JAPANESE YOUTH TO VOICE THEIR WILL THAT SHOULD BE THE ONLY GUIDANCE THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT NEEDS, BAR NONE. IF THIS IS NOT THE CASE, THEN A THREE-DAY STRIKE BY THE FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS OF THE YOUTH WHOSE LIVES ARE BEING PUT AT RISK BY THESE RECKLESS MILITARISTS WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY NEEDED TO AWAKEN THE COUNTRY THAT SENDING THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN TO DIE ATTACKING OTHER COUNTRIES IS ANATHEMA TO THE MODERN JAPANESE CITIZENRY. HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI, ONCE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH - NEVER AGAIN, EVER, EVER AGAIN!
BUT DO NOT RESORT TO VIOLENCE, ALTHOUGH FOLLOWING THE SCRIPT OF THE NAZI PARTY, AN EQUIVALENT "BURNING OF THE REICHSTAG" FALSE FLAG INCIDENT IS LIKELY TO TAKE PLACE, SUCH THAT THERE WOULD BE "REICHSTAG FIRE DECREE" ABOLISHING THE WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS POSSIBLY ONE WEEK BEFORE THE VOTE ON THE AMENDMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION (IT PASSED WITH TWO-THIRDS VOTE OF THE LOWER HOUSE, AND IF IT ALSO PASSES WITH A TWO-THIRDS VOTE OF THE UPPER HOUSE, IT CAN BE CONSIDERED A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT, INSTEAD OF A MERE LAW). THUS, IF THE RIGHTWING JAPANESE MILITARISTS ARE FOLLOWING THE GORING SCRIPT, THEY WILL LIKELY BE THE ONES TO RESORT TO VIOLENCE TO PERSONS AND PROPERTY.
WHAT GERMANY DID NOT HAVE WAS A GENERAL STRIKE, AND TO BE EFFECTIVE AS A MESSAGE, IT MUST LAST AT LEAST 3 DAYS, IMPLYING THE NEXT STRIKE IS AT LEAST ONE WEEK, AND THE THIRD STRIKE AT LEAST ONE MONTH. THIS WILL MAKE THE INDUSTRIALISTS AND BANKERS BACKING THE MILITARY TAKEOVER REALIZE THAT EVEN IF THEY CAN AMEND THE CONSTITUTION, THEIR BUSINESSES WOULD GO DOWN THE DRAIN WITH THE ENSUING AND ENDLESS STRIKES.
