ABE SUFFERS MAJOR SETBACK IN PUSH FOR SUPER-MAJORITY TO REVISE CONSTITUTION

While the LDP and its sidekick, Komeito Party, together, won 300 out of the 465 seats in the lower house, this fell far short of the 310 needed by Abe to push through legislation to revise the constitution of Japan, enabling it to wage war abroad, more specifically relevant to Japan's ambitions in South China Sea and of course, in the Korean Peninsula, which according to the 1910 Treaty of Annexation of Korea, fell under the sovereignty of Japan, completely and permanently.

That a Buddhist party would be in bed with a militarist party smacks of karmic hypocrisy that Buddha will never accept or forgive.  But, as in the days of pre-War Japan, they have gotten used to obeying the emperor, even in matters of conscience and morality, so this is nothing new.  It only proves that the Empire-thought-control is alive and well in modern Japan.

What is new is the rise of a true morality, not based on blind obedience and irrational nationalism, but based on the fact that WWII as waged by the empire had caused such great harm to the people of Japan, that its snake oil stories of wealth and power are not only no longer welcome, but positively dangerous to their descendants and survivors, prescribing for them a new path to peace and prosperity, rather than blood-soaked booties, enslaved colonies, and unbridled power at home and the world.  This path was created by the Pacifist Constitution as a covenant between the descendants of the villains and the descendants of their victims, to forgive, but never to forget, let alone repeat the war-like behavior of the pre-War generations or believe in their promises of gore and glory.

That this transformation of the mindset of the public has not occurred is a tragedy of historic proportions, a tragedy afflicting the innocent younger generation of Japanese, who no longer know what to believe, when belief and faith in the wisdom of the Pacifist Constitution is essential to their own survival and prosperity.

The reason this transformation has not occurred is because post-War Japan has been used more as a proxy for geopolitical rivalries and conflicts than allowed to be truly independent and able to build its own policies toward its neighbors. But not all the blame can be placed on the modern Japanese government.  Many of its elected governments did try to build bridges of trust and friendship with its neighboring countries.  Unfortunately, their efforts have been largely negated by their militarist governments that ended up with the likes of Abe, for instance.

Now is the time for a new Japan to emerge from the defeat of the LDP-Komeito super-majority, which is a super-majority no more, short of 10 seats to reach the required two-thirds of the lower house.  Now is the time for Komeito's members to think again whether their party has been true to its Buiddhist roots, or whether it is more Buddhist, more moral, and more Japanese to move over to a Party of Life, a party that eschews the Western definitions of right and left, liberal and conservative, but simply believes in the true Asian moral philosophy that we should not do unto others what we do not want others to do unto ourselves.  Religion without the morality of reciprocity at its heart is dead.

The Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan (CDP) as predicted first in this forum won BIG, tripling the seats it occupies from 16 seats to 48 seats, while the LDP and Komeito shrunk (thanks to the failed shennanigan of the Koike group to replace anti-revisionist LDP candidates with pro-revisionist non-LDP candidates, which were at the last minute replaced with CDP candidates instead).

With Japan's momentum for war and conquest turned back by the grassroots Japanese voters who no longer believe in so-callled "political parties" but only in their underlying MORALITY, Japan has excellent chances of coming out of the Korean Crisis not only unscathed, but even possibly becoming a major player, along with China, as a guarantor of a new Peace Treaty, which both sides so far have rejected in favor of their more grandiose designs of power and wealth.  Japan has traveled this road before, and was much, much more powerful in relative terms than North Korea even with its nuclear capabilities, before WWII.  But karma cannot be thwarted.  Those who live by the sword will die by the sword, and so there is now hope that a new Japan will emerge from the embers of the crumbling LDP-Komeito coalition of militarist holdovers of 1945, to beat their spears into plowshares, the bitterness of war into brotherhood, and the greed for land and resources into generosity of sharing knowledge.  

True wealth will no longer be minted by fiat thru printing presses.  It will be created in far greater quantities by innovation, collaboration, and experimentation.  Manufacturing is a mastered science, and all the continents have been discovered.  The last frontier of human wealth is to fathom the laws and the meaning of those laws of the universe, which requires traits that modern technology does not nurture - honesty, humility and humanity.  If Abe can learn from this defeat, as a blessing in disguise to turn Japan way from the old road of conquest, and help Japan become a truly Asian, truly moral, and truly reformed country, then the future of Japan will be bright, if not outright brilliant.

JAPAN'S RACE TO JUMP INTO THE TIME TUNNEL OF NOVEMBER 9TH IS ON!!!

The LDP+Komeito Coalition did catch up to 312 seats, while the CDP rose further to 54 seats.  While the LDP+Komeito Coalition has won more than 2/3 of seats of the lower house, it takes only 3 defections or abstentions to set them back to one less than 2/3 super-majority (310 seats).  

The WaPo has already declared super-majority before the 310 mark was reached.  The British media is brimming with headlines to the same effect, before the fact.  Britain and Australia could not be more elated at this height of glory for the British empire, which gave birth to the old Meiji Constitution, and would push Abe very hard to DO IT, before the November 9th 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration of 1867.  

This will split the Komeito into two or more factions, as many in the Komeito party do not want to have the Peace Constitution revised, and see Japan return to the path of militarism, but now, they have to choose between the lure of Power and the inner light of Buddha.
