Thinking of Love

Thinking of Love

Cherry blossoms

* The variants of the new coronavirus are still rampant. I sincerely hope that everyone would be taken all possible precautions and actions to protect yourselves, your family members, your relatives, your team members, and all those who are involved in your work.

Today I will consider “love”, which is the theme of philosophy and religion. I would appreciate if you could think about this together.

1.Love is not alms. Any love becomes love with accompanying by gratitude. Whenever we think of love and try to shape it, there is always gratitude in there, and there has to be.  This is the absolute requirement for love.

2.For example, when I ( the subject, even if the first person, the second person, the third person, or the plural, it is same. I’ll talk in the first person here) think of love for unspecified persons or a specific target person, I think that it is a feeling of wishing for the happiness of a specific target person.

3.Then I wonder what happiness is. Persons who are felt affection or a specific target person (here, I call this target person a beloved one. And a beloved one is such as a family member, a close relative, a girlfriend, a boyfriend, etc.) adds today’s achievements to yesterday’s achievements and further accumulates tomorrow’s achievements on each one’s place. We call this ‘to live’.  Or, if you are a young person, we say “the way that you live”, and if you are an old one, we say “the way you would have lived”.

This ‘to live’ is done in all the relationships in society. And these relationships must be Good. Relationships, those are, family, relatives, school, workplace (and the workplace includes from part-time work to local governments, central ministries, governments, parliament, music provision, sports provision, art galleries, museums, courts, etc., where all place that we earn our salary to be alive), neighborhoods, travel, clubs, service, study abroad, overseas work, political activities, international activities, international organizations, etc. Here, I call this “a life and its will and satisfaction to improve its fulfillment.” Here, I realize that the happiness of people and a beloved person is that its person’s “will and satisfaction to improve their lives and their fulfillment” and “this continues.” I consider that through this continuation, people and a beloved one can have hope and goals to strive for, which makes their lives worth living.

4.And, for this “life and one’s will and satisfaction to improve its fulfillment” and its “continuation”, the clothes, food and housing of people and  a beloved one must be sufficient and conditions that are connecting to tomorrow. In addition, people and a beloved person satisfy the quality of their lives by purchasing goods that satisfy their individual hobbies and tastes. This is a necessary condition for people, a beloved one, and their families to live and for each person’s life to be fulfilled.

5.Next, consider a workplace where people and a beloved one earn a salary (income) to satisfy their lives. When its place is a private company, the company gives people goods (all the goods that make up our world and are in circulation in our world) and services (providing benefits to people, and, systems that bring benefits to people called intellectual goods) and the company earns income. At this time, a company, depending on its size, produces the goods that it offers through its own factories or by acquiring other companies, and sells the goods and services through stores (physical stores) or stores and transactions on the Internet.

6.On the other hand, in order to sell the goods and services to people, the company must procure various goods necessary for producing the goods and providing the services. This is called purchasing goods. This purchase  procures the necessary goods from any company in the world or by producing on direct investment. This network is nowadays connected to all over the world. The companies which take responsibility for this logistics are the logistics companies and systems, both domestic and international.

7.However, this network and system has been shredded by the spread (pandemic) of the infection (COVID-19) caused by the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) to the world. Now, the people of the world are facing hardships, our lives are in difficulty, and we are suffering. In Japan, the number of children who take their own lives has increased even among school children and students under the protection of their parents. (2020 suicides: 14 elementary school students, 136 junior high school students, 329 high school students. (2021.2.15 JIJI)  Currently, the number of people infected with the new type coronavirus is 109,901,391 worldwide. The number of deaths is 2,430,096. (Google News, as of Feb. 18, 2021). These are unfortunate scenes. However, also in Japan, on February 17, 2021, vaccination began from medical staffs, and it became to be able to be had expectation that this disaster is coming to an end.

8.I will summarize a little here.

A.When we think of love for people and a beloved one, it is a desire to be each person is happiness.

B.The happiness of a person is to continue on life and to continue on his or her willingness that make progress and fulfillment and to continue on each satisfaction.

C.In order to continue a person’s willingness that make progress and fulfillment and satisfaction, it is necessary to have his or her sufficient clothing, food, and housing, as well as, it is necessary to have each person’s suitable goods for hobbies and tastes that satisfy a quality of life, and it is necessary to have each person’s suitable goods that require for study and work.

D.In order to satisfy A to C, it is necessary for society to have an open systems of equal opportunities and to maintain a sound economic networks and logistics systems.

E.The actions and behaviors in B through D are establishing and circulating by people’s “earning a salary (income)” and “buying goods”, and by companies’ “selling and buying goods and services”. And in modern society, money including credit money is indispensable.

F.And the consequences of A to E lead to the modern and realistic aspect of love that “love is with the way of society where money is indispensable”. Then, from the condition of love that “love is a feeling that wish for the happiness of a person”, we come to the simple proposition that “Love is society“.

9.Love is society, and society is love. Thinking more, society forms a network that connects the world. And the world is built on the earth.

The earth is one planet in the solar system. From here, we come to the conclusion that “the earth is love”. In fact, the earth gives us everything.

That’s it for today. I’m going to think about love for a while. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this. Everyone, let’s survive!

The Social Contract 2 -Gettysburg Address by President Lincoln, USA-

The sky over the trees in April
The sky over the trees in April

*1 This article is an English translation of the Japanese version uploaded on July 22, 2016. This is a post during the protest demonstration all over the United States for the death of Mr. George Floyd, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. America will change. And liberalists take over the will of President Lincoln.

A.The Social Contract 2

1.Today, I will select to take a look at “The Gettysburg Address,” the speech had been given in Gettysburg, in the midst of the Civil War, by US President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States.

2.Since ancient times, those who are enslaved have been deprived of their liberty by war, debt, capture, and other means, and make to be a target of trading. This continues even today.

3.Slavery release that the United States had carried out, and  “The Gettysburg Address” which the 16th President of the United States, President Abraham Lincoln had been given a speech at the Battlefield in Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 are the Social Contract, and as long as human beings exist must be taken over it.

4.The original and translated texts are listed below. The original text uses Bliss Copy (1864) with the President Lincoln’ signature. The source is “Abraham Lincoln Online” and “WIKISOURCE” on the Web, and the sentence is the same. The translation (in Japanese) was done by an author of this blog. I think it conveys the meaning, but please do it for reference only. Try to translate it yourself, thinking of those days. Please take to feel the thoughts of President Lincoln. I hope we can share.

B.The Gettysburg Address

1.Original texts

Bliss Copy (1864)

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.

We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln

2.Reference translation (Japanese)

ブリス コピー(1864年)

87年前(アメリカ独立戦争)、私達の父祖は、すべての人は平等に作られているという、(神の)命題に(身を)捧げ、自由を心に共に取り入れ、この大陸に新しい国家をもたらした。

今、私達は、その国家が、或いは、どのような国家が、そのように自由を心に共に取り入れ、そのように(神の)命題に(身を)捧げ、長く耐えることができるかどうか試される(テストする)偉大な市民戦争(南北戦争)に従事(従軍)している。私達は、その戦争の偉大な戦場に立ち向かっている。私達は、国家が生き永ら得るであろうこと、そして、ここで彼らの命を捧げた人達のための最後の休息の場所としての戦場の運命(に身を)を捧げるためにやって来た。私達がこれをなすべきことはすべからくあり、ふさわしくある。

しかし、より大きな自覚において、私達には、この地を、聖地として別にし、清め、聖化することはできない――(それは)、ここで、生き、そして、死に、闘った勇敢な者達が、私達のわずかに増減する乏しい力量を遥かに超えて、この地を聖なるものとする。

世界は、私達がここで述べているところのものに殆ど注意を払わず、長く記憶にとどめてもいない。だが、彼らがここで行ったものは決して忘れることはない。

むしろ、ここで戦った彼らが、かくも気高く遠大に前進させた未完の任務に、ここで身を捧げるべきは、生者である私達である。

私達の前に残されている偉大な任務、――これらの名誉ある死から、私達が、彼らがここで最後の献身の限りを尽くした目標(理想)に対し、いや増す(更なる)献身を引き受けること、――そして、私達がここで、これらの死を決して無駄死ににしないことを大いに決意すること、――この国家が、神のもとで、自由の新しい誕生を手に入れること、――そして、人々の、人々による、人々のための政治を地球から消滅させないこと、――に身を捧げるべきは、私達である。

1.I tweeted twice on May 14th (Japan time). The content is about a knowledge of a new type coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) which was unknown until now, and written by Mrs. or Miss, Saori Imai, who is an EU researcher, journalist and editor living in France. I am introducing it by linking to its article.

2.Articles are written in Japanese. The crux of the article is his remark that Professor Luc Montagnier, who discovered HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was said, “The sequence of SARS-CoV-2 contains another sequence. This is not a natural mixture, the original virus was a bat virus, so someone recombined it”.

3.The Professor was said (this happened), “The most reasonable hypothesis is that someone wanted to make a vaccine for AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).”And he also was said, “Therefore this is why someone created the coronavirus, and the virus ‘ran away’ from the lab in Wuhan.”

4.The Professor would not be saying that the sequence incorporated is the one of HIV. But the professor was said “The most reasonable hypothesis that this happened is that someone wanted to make a vaccine for AIDS. So someone created the coronavirus”, the Professor would be being suggested it to be HIV.

5.From here, I will organize and write.

a.The Professor would be a discoverer of the AIDS virus (HIV) and would be a virus researcher.

b.At January 2020, before the Professor’s utterance, a group of researchers in India compared the spike glycoprotein sequences of 2019-nCoV (SARS-CoV-2) with the one of SARS CoV, and they have published that they found that 2019-nCoV (SARS-CoV-2) contains four insertions. [Figure 2 in Imai’s article]

c. Further, the group of India’s researchers said, “Surprisingly, each of the four inserts aligned with short segments of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1 (HIV-1) proteins,” Next, it states that the glycoproteins (GP-120) and substance (GAG=glycosaminoglycan) that constitute HIV-1 that are replaced in this sequence are similar to the glycoproteins (GP) and substance (PolyP) that are components of 2019-nCoV (SARS-CoV-2), Moreover they are coming to the conclusion that say “It is unlikely that all 4 inserts in the 2019-nCoV (SARS-CoV-2) spike glycoprotein fortuitously match with 2 key structural proteins of an unrelated virus (HIV-1).”

d.Professor Luc Montagnier would be approved the thesis published by a group of researchers in India, based on the above mentioned 2 to 4 descriptions. It was said that a group of India’s researchers have retracted the thesis, which they published, due to many objections.

6.”The truth on the scientific facts is heavy. Even if someone tries to hide it, it appears.” This is the Professor Luc Montagnier’s words.

7.SARS-CoV-2 is an artificially created virus. And it’s more troublesome than we think. I propose to change its name to AIDS-CoV-2. We still think that this virus is like the influenza virus, but it’s not. More dangerous. We have to make more medicines and vaccines. I would like to convey this to everyone.

Note: To go to the article I tweeted, please click on the Twitter logo of the upper right corner. It will jump to Twitter. Imai’s article also has a link to the thesis by a group of researchers in India.

Dear friends!

1. Now, the world becomes in a dangerous situation by the spread of Infectious Pneumonia due to the new type coronavirus. However the world will be recovering. The people who make to recover each own world exist. And our world will be changing. Under these circumstances, we must live on.

2. Doctors in the field would be spoken that Infectious Pneumonia caused by the new type coronavirus is rapidly becoming serious symptom and causes death in a short time. And the rapid increase in the number of infected people and their serious symptom are being an excessive burden on the doctors, nurses, and staff who would be treated with limited personnel. Also, in the medical field, the required number of medical protective equipment such as life-saving artificial respirators, oxygenator(ECMO) and goggles that protect doctors and nurses from infections, eye shields, face guards, masks, etc. are increasing.

3.  First and foremost, we must not be infected with the new type coronavirus to protect our own lives. This also means reducing the burden on doctors, nurses, and staff in the medical field. Careful hand washing with soap, mouth rinsing with clean tap water, ventilation in a clean environment, refraining from going out. And when we go out or go to work, we should wear a mask and avoid a closed space, a place where people are crowding, a scene where people are in direct contact with each other or talk. And when we go out or go to work, let’s act by taking a distance of 2m between people which is now called social distance. Let’s devise the style of work and attendance. And wash our clothes, underwear, let’s keep our body clean.

4. It is better to assume that the wave of infection with the new type coronavirus will occur at least up to three waves, when we consider the Spanish Ful(influenza). And, according to the report, the required number of antibodies that are resistance-matter against new type coronavirus, which infected people make in their body, is a few and mutate during the process of infection, so we may get infected again. Therefore this virus is really malicious. There is also a report (Harvard University) that there is a possibility of epidemic in 2024 again. However we are not powerless.

5. The media reports that the symptoms have improved by using pharmaceutical formulations such as America’s Remdesivir (Gilliad Sciences), Japan’s Avigan (Fujifilm), Alvesco (Teijin Pharma), France’s Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine) (Sanofi) and serum extracted from the patient’s body. Also, WHO is announcing medical institutions, laboratories, universities and pharmaceutical companies currently working on the development of a vaccine against the new type coronavirus. I will introduce its address.

https://www.who.int/blueprint/priority-diseases/key-action/Novel-Coronavirus_Landscape_nCoV-4april2020.pdf?ua=1

Now, hold onto our hope strongly with one hand and move on!

Note:

Information on formulations with improved symptoms is inadequate about countries in Europe and their respective regions of the world. Please check the situation of each country in each area by yourself.

Note 2:

Please check the side-effects of each pharmaceutical formulation by yourself. (2020.4.21)

Liberalism course for junior high school students, high school students, No12 -Raise the flag of liberalism.-

Raise the flag of liberalism.

February sky

*1. This article is an English translation of the Japanese version which uploaded on April 23, 2017. This article is writing for junior high school and high school students in Japan, but here, I am talking about the essence of liberalism. Marx and Engels state by a short phrase in “Die deutsche ideologie” the dominance of socialism over liberalism, but here is an answer to that. I am hoping everyone could be read this.

*2.Infectious disease pneumonias due to the new coronavirus are spreading from Wuhan, China. Also there is a news that say, “This virus has leaked from the bacterial research facility in Wuhan”. It is highly infectious and it is causing many deaths. But, either way, vaccines will be developed and Infectious disease pneumonias are going to end. However, if I talk about this situation coldly, I will sympathize with a person concerned and I want that each person make to try hard not to spread the infection, but I cannot but saying that the confidence in the People’s Republic of China’s national system has fallen to area of the dangerous.

The People’s Republic of China (hereinafter abbreviated as China) is being a nation that is subjugating people by the Communist Party’s self-logic. This self-logic is, for people, dangerous in the area of ​​freedom and human rights, for companies, dangerous in the area of ​​intellectual property, and for developing countries, its infrastructure development is, if saying by Marx economics terms, it is China and Chinese companies that are ’accumulation of capital’ through this infrastructure investment, and this developing country has been remaining huge debts, thereby it is dangerous contents that say that its repayment has forced them to accept China’s increased control. By the trade, now, the United States make an objection. And they are belligerent. This can be understood by looking at their attitudes in India, the Republic of China, Vietnam, the South China Sea, the East China Sea, and waters near Japan. Into here, the new Infectious disease pneumonia joins from China to the world people. By things have come until to here, I cannot but saying the following. “Oh, Chinese people, please do somehow or other!”

A.Raise the flag of liberalism.

1. Freedom is to release the ability of the human being. Liberalism is to assert and seek it. And a liberalism society is a society that guarantees it. This becomes a simple proposition that expresses a liberalism society.

2. We don’t usually think about this very much. We go to school and choose a workplace or occupation such as a private company, non-profit corporation, administrative organization, political party organization, work hard to get a position there, feel the joy of accomplishing the task,  we live each person’s life. And here, daily works take place, meetings, deals, contracts take place, factories are up, products are made, sold and consumed, according to the rules that have been shaped by the predecessors so far. And if we consider this aggregate of people’s activities as one unit, the spread of this unit will be to the World from regions such as villages → counties ・ cities → prefectures → nations → Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America and Oceania. For the people being 100 years ago, it depended on a difference of the industrial production capacity and a difference of the power of the culture of an area and the country where its person lived in, but the world were far-off countries. Nowadays, the world is near to our countries, where young people can go anywhere (however, there are some areas and nations which cannot be accessible). Companies are doing business in the world.

3. How the world is reflected in your thinking? Even if in what kind of method, it is good to think of the world. It becomes training for thinking. The situation where a person is placing is different in a one’s each. And it is good to choose our own position in those, I think so.

4.We sometimes worry in a position that we have chosen or been given position. At its time, whatever your work on your position, remember the phrase “Freedom is to release the ability of the human being” which written in first of this blog. Freedom is to release the ability of the human being. If your abilities are locked up, think of how you can exert your abilities and behave alive. And talk with your superior. Please never turn a feeling to worry about to yourself. It is same at school. Please talk with your teacher. Even if you talk with your teacher, if you cannot improve anything, please talk with a vice‐principal or principal. Thereby if workplaces and schools improve, it’s a fruit of liberalism and society. Liberalism is not the one that is expressed by difficult words and concepts (what tries to define words verbally). In this way, it is the one which anyone can understand. And you, who do this, are now raising a liberalism flag honorably.

5. Before little, on TV, a renowned professor of history at the Tokyo University, Professor Kazuto Hongo, would be introduced Taisuke Itagaki as a person whom would like to take up in NHK’s taiga drama. Itagaki is known as a person who said “Even if Itagaki dies, freedom will never die” when he was attacked by a ruffian. But even if this is not Itagaki, you and we who behave in above way are raising liberalism flags honorably and are taking over in history of it. And, this will be taken over by the people who will be carrying the society from now on.

B.About me

1. When I was young, it is toddling walk but there was a time that I was trying to be a faithful student of Marx. One of the books I read at that days, there was “Die deutsche ideologie”. In it, there is a passage that says “In a frame of set prerequisite in society, this right to enjoy unhindered coincidence has been traditionally called human-like (human’s) free that seems to be a human being”.

2. Answering this was my problem. Its answer becomes an expression that expresses a simple human will and action that say “Freedom is to release the ability of the human being. Liberalism is to assert and seek it. And a liberalism society is a society that guarantees it.” Freedom is to release of human abilities.

Talk the freedom



Talk the freedom

The blue sky in November
 The blue sky in November

* This article is an English translation of the Japanese version which had uploaded on June 23, 2013.

A.Freedom and society

1. The concept (meaning and content that the word is including) of freedom is a higher-order concept than the concepts of socialism and communism that have so far appeared in history.

2.On the freedom societies, humans have higher sociality and societies will develop higher than the societies that have appeared and that have been called socialism societies and communism societies in history.

B.The freedom society’s morality and the goodness

1.The concept of freedom includes the concept of morality and goodness. We call this liberalism. The concept of socialism and communism, too, includes the concept of morality and goodness. However, in each concept of the morality and the goodness in the concept of liberalism and the concept of socialism and communism each real methods carrying on are different.

2.The morality and goodness in the concept of liberalism rest on its developments of the spontaneous sprits which are independence of individual human beings. We call an individual’s spontaneity the independence of will. Society is formed not only morality and goodness, and it formed by the spontaneity of this individual person. And society is always going to open the opportunities equally for this spontaneity of individual person. (We have to do so.) We call this the liberalism society.

3.The morality and goodness of the liberalism society are shaped by the spontaneous sprits (= the Subject which say in philosophy ) which are independence of individual human. In the liberalism society, the consensus of the subject becomes the morality and goodness of society, which again acts on the subject and forms the morality that say “should be, should do”. Liberalism society is improved and advance by the interaction between this subject and society.

C.Morality and goodness of socialism, communism society, or exclusionism society 

1. The morality and goodness of socialism, communism society, or exclusionism society are written by a small number of people or one group in society.

2.Their morality and goodness are enforced on all members of society without going through the process of obtaining the approval of all members of the society or by pseudo procedures.

3.In this nation, access to information, freedom of speech, and academic freedom are limited, and overall, the opportunity for the spontaneous desires of individuals is not “always equal”. We call this the closing society. 

4.In addition, when this  morality and goodness are performed in one group in society, its self-identity often appears as aggression against others. We call this exclusionism.

D.The conditions of freedom

1. For being freedom society, we develop democracy and we have to hold full discussions, and the system to determine must always be considered and determined to reflect the consensus of people.

2.To avoid a violent solution of the problem, it must be parliamentarism.

3.By the people grow up, we have to select politicians who are morally good and whom we can put trust for the fate of the nation. And we have to avoid persons of fake politician who collect votes by populism and sensationalism and endanger the people and the nation. 

E.What liberalism society aims for

1.People and society advance toward beauty. That is, “the way which people and society are being is beautiful” is the aim of a liberalism society.

2.The realization of a society where people and society are beautiful proves that the liberalism society is a higher-order society and a society that can aim for higher-order society.

F.Message

1.Please, would you try to read Karl Popper’s “The Open Society and Its Enemies”, “The Logic of Scientific Discovery”, “The Poverty of Historicismy”, and “Conjectures and Refutations”. You might be thought “Popper? It’s old”. However, by interacting with Popper, about the problem such as how people challenge science and thinking, Popper is helpful for us for opening up new field of view, I think so.

D.Tea time

1.There would be a violinist named Kazuhito Yamane. Born in 1995, he is still 18 years old (However, as of 2013). Yesterday Saturday, NHK’s E TV broadcasted the ‛N Symphony Hope Concert’, on there he played “Spain Symphony” that Édouard Lalo composed. I only listened to the 4th and 5th movements, but I felt an outstanding talent in the smoothness of the beginning of the 4th movement. I would be written it down.

An Abdication of current His Majesty the Tennou



An Abdication of current His Majesty the Tennou

White Ume blossoms in the spring sky

*1  This article was uploaded on April 28 in the Japanese version. Japanese honorifics are passive voice in English. I hope that you would be read as one of article that Japanese described the His Majesty the Tennou. Thank you very much for your access.

*2 The words of Emperor and Empress was used in the description of the Kougou who was originally uploaded. In Japan today, if the words of the Emperor and Empress are expressed as the word of the Tennou and Kougou, it does not accurately express the current situation of Japan. I corrected it.

A.An Abdication of current His Majesty the Tennou

1.Current His Majesty the Tennou would be abdicated on April 30th. An era of current His Majesty the Tennou was, -as the Majesty himself would be expressed by his own words, truly, his Majesty the Tennou ownself would be deeply thought of what own existence should be as ‘the symbol of the unity of the people’, and have been shown to our people it by His Majesty own behavior,- was an era.

2.The era of Showa, who is the previous era of current His Majesty the Tennou, inherited the throne of Tennou as a divinity. And in the world trend that had brought the defeat of war, although the Majesty still had been had a consciousness saying “My Government”, he had been had a consciousness of “I” who is existing together the nation’s people. And the Majesty had been acceded to the Tennou that had become ‘the symbol of the State and of the unity of the people’ that said in the Chapter 1 first Article of the Constitution of Japan from the Tennou that had been deified as ‘Akitsumikami’.

3.The current His Majesty the Tennou was always there when we, the hearts of the people, are shook and in hardships. He was in Okinawa. He was on the island of the Pacific Front of the previous Great War. The His Majesty the Tennou’s existence would have been become the existence which, for example, even if I select my mind of an individual who say “I”, when I think of the His Majesty the Tennou’s appearance, which my mind becomes soft. I would think that this is what everyone in the present people thinks. These are gifts of His Majesty’s heart, and I would deeply appreciate to His Majesty’s heart with sincerity of the truth of my heart.

And to this Her Majesty’s heart I would express my deep appreciation with sincerity of the truth of my heart.

B.The beginning of the era of Reiwa

Liberalism course for junior high school students, high school students, No18 -Human has the values in anybodies’ every life that make efforts to live good.-



Human has the values in anybodies’ every life that make efforts to live good.

Cherry Blossoms

Ⅰ.Let’s think that everybody make effort to live for good!

1. “Let’s make effort to live for the good” does not mean religious practice or moral actual practice. “Live for the good” is a state of mind that the religious people who has been trained over and over, or Kant has been reached, and it is not a scope that we ordinary persons of all living beings reach. However, I think that it is good  to have the time to think “Let’s make effort to live for the good”, like we remembered in our daily lives where there is many feeling which were being depressed, or grieving, or being angry. I call this autonomy.

2. And we define the value that describe in this section as “being useful for some object”.

3.Some objects are, ourselves, relatives, cousins, near persons such as relatives, schools, hospitals where we work, schools, government offices, organizations such as companies, and society after getting effects from one place to another, and world.

4. The object for junior high school students and high school students is from you and your parents and families to school. If you have a part-time job, it also includes. Here, first of all, please realize that each and every one of you has the absolute value of being a human resource who will create a society in the future. Everyone is studying. There are students doing club activities. We need effort with both. We need a continuing will that advance toward the object. In here, there is an each value, namely, the value that make an effort, the value that think, the value that show a continuing will which advance toward the object. You and your (student) bag are full of the value. You always carry its bag with you. And you yourself are a mass of value. Remember this always.

5. If there are teachers and friends who are going to destroy this value’s bag and your willingness as a person, you should never take on worries at all alone. Don’t blame yourself by the dilemma you think cannot be solved. Talk to your father or mother. Let’s have your father or mother consult with the principal. Let’s consult with the Board of Education. If there are friends or group who are going to hurt your personality, let’s break up from the friends and group resolutely. Please, don’t hurt yourself by yourself by being troubled about words or cruel treatments that hurt you. They are not your teacher or friends. A true teacher or friend is a person, in the case of a teacher, who is be able to share and sympathize with the values ​​that you have now and the effort that you do now, and the effort that you will be accumulating from now on, and in the case of a friend, is a person who is be able to share.

Ⅱ.My case

1.When I entered university, Japanese universities were in the midst of  disputes by students, and my university was no exception. If I think about it now, the university at that time is the time when the students were swung around by the empty theory of some impractical ideologues. I was no exception, too. I really regret this, and talk, there was a book called “Organization Theory Introduction” by Kanichi Kuroda in the book I read at that time. In the one passage in its book, there was a sentence that “people who are not engaged in production labor and labor do not create value”, and this gave me deep damage in the mind. And this way of thinking is nothing less than the way of thinking that brought about the purge and slaughter of people of mass knowledge group by countries and armed groups that are professing Marxism as science since the birth of the Soviet Union. At that time, I was a student who was attending to the Department of ‘Japanese language and Japanese literature’ of the Faculty of Education, and a student to be impressed with a book of Kiyoshi Oka, but I was ignorant. I who lost sight of my value, after all, dropped out of its university, and I’ve chosen to leave from its course.

2. The way of thinking that “people who do not engage in production labor and labor do not create value” leads to the same way of thinking which Mio Sugita, a member of the House of Representatives, who has recently become a problem, wrote in the August 2018 issue of ‘Shincho 45’, against the people of LGBT, as next, “They do not have a child, that is, they have not ‘productivity’”. Human have dignity and value as human. The fact itself that such descriptions and remarks come out, I think that it is possible to grasp the rigidity of Japanese society as an indicator to be shown on the left side in the case of Mr. Kanichi Kuroda and on the right side in the case of Mrs. Mio Sugita. However, not only “productivity”, but even if “productivity” is replaced with “being useful for some object” which this section placed the standard of value, the similar way of thinking is lying everywhere in the society. And when this make a group or mass, in a case of group, by calling someone a friend, it becomes an implicit agreement to show to be a member of its group that do behaviors who attack its friend, and in the case of mass, in addition in the case of a group, it becomes the unique identity of being a member of its group that attack and expel persons who have doubts about the status of its mass. Unfortunately, such groups exist still by a country unit in the world. However, the way of life for you still young is to think, ‘Be with the good’, and to live, even in such a society and the world. This is the only way to save yourself when you worry, I think.

3. I will keep talking. The talk alone which was only leaving the course is not interesting at all, and I don’t have the qualification to tell you something, I think. However, I have then graduated the Faculty of Economics of another university by correspondence education. After several years, I have made its graduation thesis a new book (Kindai-bungeishya, 2007 publish), entitled ”Marx Criticism, the concept of the individual and kind at Marx-Its critical consideration”. The standing position of this book is the one that take over the concept of “the individual and the kind”, which was told in the 19th century European thought world where Marx lived, to the present day of the 21st century, and I evaluate it by myself that it is occupying in its commensurate position of itself in the history of thought. And in this way I am talking liberalism to you.

4. Round up so as not to be long. The other day, a teacher who would has been achieved a professor’s and dean’s responsibilities of the university which I had attended at first would has been passed away. At its university, I received a tuition payment’s scholarship in the first school year, and the teacher who would has been passed away was the one of the three professors which would has been made an interview at that time. To be given a scholarship is, to say the least, because I was hoped that I would do my best to studies, therefore, I think that I have been sorry to drop out of its university. And for this unachieved consciousness that I did not achieve the expectations of the professors, in my heart, there was a consciousness that life was not connected. And, I attended the funeral that done both the teacher’s farewell ceremony and the first seven days’ Buddhist memorial ceremony, I have stated the apology and condolences with my whole heart. The graduates of the Faculty and department of subject gathered for its ceremony. And I was able to feel, with members, the sense that forgot for a long time, and at the same time, I was able to return to the interrupted course and regain the sense that the interrupted life was connected.

5.This is a lesson for everybody. Do not leave from your course. Please, live with the good.

Liberalism course for junior high school students, high school students, No17 ‐A request and asking about an expression that says the “Nation (=Country)” in NHK’s news and commentaries‐


A request and asking about an expression that says the “Nation (=Country)” in NHK’s news and commentaries

Cherry Blossoms

*This section is stating the five principles of the modern liberal states. Therefore, I make this section ‘Liberalism course for junior high school students, high school students, No17’.

1. Today, I will write in the form of request that one viewer asks about the expression “Nation (=Country)” where announcers and commentators are used in NHK news and commentaries.

2. I had done this request once in a sentence that had written an impression on the NHK’s some program.

3. In Japan, below the Cabinet there are administrative organizations of each Ministries and Offices. Announcers and commentators of NHK would lump together this administrative organizations of the Cabinet, each Ministries and Offices, and would express as the “Nation (=Country)”. Please change this, and if an incident or event is related to the administration, announcers and commentators’ everybody lump together its administrative agencies and don’t express as “Nation (=Country)” but please tell each name to viewers. When we compare by the case of lumping together as the “Nation (=Country)” and by the case of reporting until each Ministries and Offices, those who write news manuscripts and commentators are not allowed to make a false report, so it will take a little time to examine and check each responsible Ministries and Offices. However, if this will be established as the usual form of news coverage and commentary, it will not be a bothering time. And, when NHK’s people provide the news and commentaries relevant to Japanese administrative organizations, if there are internal regulations or customary practices in NHK which let those   administrative organizations lump together as “Nation (=Country)”, please change them.

4. When this attitude is established, Japan will change a little and we will become more wise viewers.

5. If adding it, it is not “Nation (Country) = administrative organization”. The nation (=country) is, that is, there are national people, a territory, and a territorial sea, and the state that the nation (= national people) is establishing sovereignty, freedom, and human rights in the territory and territorial sea which we call it a modern nation. The people, the territory, and the territorial waters are strictly present on a reality. Sovereignty, freedom and human rights are also not abstract concepts. It is an actual concept that shows truly the reality of what kind of country it is. Sovereignty is the existence of the national people who are the sovereigns, and is composed of the constitution, the army, the administrative organization, the economic society and its rules which the national people have. Freedom and human rights are also the  actual concepts that are composed of the constitution, the army, the administrative organization, the economic society and its rules which the national people have. In the modern time, a nation (country) is thus a nation that has the five real entities of national people, territory and territorial sea, sovereignty, freedom, and human rights. We call this the five principles of the modern nation.

6. However, there are not many nations (= countries) that have these five principles in the world. The People’s Republic of China and North Korea, too, prepare the form of a nation (=country). However, both countries lack freedom and human rights and both countries are also  dictatorship nations which controls people and society by those who belong to the dictator and its hierarchy. (Hierarchy: Organization which is divided into each class for dominating, for example: Chinese Communist Party and Korean Labor Party.) In these countries, the relationship between the administrative organization of the country and the party (the ruling party) does not differentiate, and the equation  “country = party organization = administrative organization” holds.

In light of this fact, it is possible to ask that the current NHK press stance may be staying at this level of consciousness, or not. Japan must more develop as a member of the world’s liberalism state.

7. As NHK, please be corresponding an above request and asking and I would want to ask for NHK’s sincere consideration to reform the press attitude and consciousness in the future, as a news agency of a liberalism nation.
