Seeing through the US-UK conspiracy to contain China and use Japan for convenience  Thinking of the third term of modern Japan1

It was in 1868 (the first year of the Meiji era) that modern Japan, whose national goals were to escape Asia and join the ranks of Europe, to enrich the country and strengthen its military power and to advance to the continent, started. The Empire of Japan, which can be said to be an amalgam of an absolute monarchy and a pseudo-constitutional monarchy, collapsed in 1945 after a conflict with the United States and Britain over the invasion of China. Since then, the United States, which is a victorious country against Japan and the hegemon of the world, has taken the role of a monarch in place of the emperor in a way that makes it difficult to visualize, and has effectively ruled Japan. It took 77 years from 1868 to 1945, when the empire collapsed due to the defeat against the United States, but 2022 will be the 77th year from 1945. The pre-war and post-war periods will be soon even. If the pre-war period is the first period of modern Japan, the post-war period can be called the second period. Now, after 2023, the question is whether it will be possible to achieve the major transformation of Independence against the United States and voluntary democratization to create the third period of modern Japan.

System change in "third 77 years"
It is 2021 that is strangely before the final year of the second term. A fleet of France, Germany, and the Netherlands, including the state-of-the-art aircraft carrier "Queen Elizabeth," will rally in Japan and the surrounding waters in Japan, which deepens military ties with the United Kingdom. The British troops, which have returned to the eastern part of Suez since 1956, have ships stationed in the western Pacific Ocean such as Yokosuka and Sasebo in Japan, and join the US forces in Japan.
After the end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which is expanding as a global collective security organization, will add Germany and the Netherlands to the major member countries of the United States, Britain and France, and will increase its military presence in the Indo-Pacific region. Washington and the major NATO nations in Western Europe, along with the media, screamed at the formation of a Chinese siege and called it the main ring of "the struggle between Western democracy and Chinese tyranny" (US President Biden). Moreover, the United States and Britain have raised Japan, a former defeated country that cannot be said to share values, as "the leader of the alliance in the Pacific region." If carried by this portable shrine, Japan's "lost 30 years" after the burst of the bubble economy will be half-permanent.
In order for posterity to name the "third 77 years" after 2022 the "third period of modern Japan," Japan must never take the slogan of the United States and Britain. The Japanese must wake up from the illusion that they are "treated on an equal footing with Westerners" and "the only honorary white country in Asia", read the motives of the United States and Britain to seal China, and set the current political system as soon as possible. It needs to be converted.
Needless to say, it is the dissolution of the Japan-US security system, which has virtually continued the occupation rule by the United States from 1945 to 7 years. In other words, it is a break from the state of the US military protectorate and client state. At the same time, by thoroughly clearing the negative heritage brought about by Japan, a late imperialist country in the prewar period, we renewed the way of cooperation and cooperation with Asian countries such as China, South Korea, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and India. It will be possible to lay the foundation for its own survival sphere in both name and reality in East Asia, which have led the world economy in the latter half of the 20th century. In order to make a big change in the coming 77 years, let's first take a very rough overview of Japan's external relations over the last 150 years.
Bonds between US & British rulers and Japanese emperor aides &conglomerates
Modern Japan, which advocated "to escape Asia and join the ranks of Europe", has been directly and indirectly manipulated by the United Kingdom and the United States. The United States and Britain have consistently used Japan as a piece of global strategy based on its own geopolitics. They turned an attention to Japan in order to contain Russia's southward advance to the Korean Peninsula and northeastern China, which is the northeastern tip of the Eurasian continent.
At the time of the defeat movement at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, the United Kingdom invited five Choshu clan men, including Hirobumi Ito, who is called the Choshu Five, to their own country, and supplied weapons, technology, and funds to the Satsuma and Choshu clan. The system was realized. The defeat movement and the modernization of Japan cannot be talked about without a connection with British financial and industrial capital.
The peak of cooperation in the prewar period was the Anglo-Japanese Alliance conclusion period (1902-1923). The United States is close to this as a silent partner. The victory over the thin ice of the Russo-Japanese War would not have been possible without the backing of the United States and Britain in raising war expenses and peace negotiations, and recovery from the Great Kanto Earthquake would have been difficult without the purchase of Japanese government bonds by the United States and Britain.
In this way, US-UK financial capital led by Rockefeller, Morgan, and Rothschild is deeply linked to the Chinese and conglomerates of the Japanese emperor's aides. The  youth officers of the Japanese Army, who dismantled party politics in the 1930s, regarded the court group advocating cooperation with the United States as "your side" and as symbolized by the February 26 Incident. Together the chaebol generals were targeted for attack. Meanwhile, the United States strongly urges London to dissolve the Anglo-Japanese Alliance, and enters into a decisive confrontation with Japan, which is led by the military and is advancing the invasion of China.
By the way, the assets of the Emperor's family expanded explosively every time the prewar Japanese empire repeated wars and invasions, as it was called the Emperor's conglomerate. The invasion of China and the promotion of war made Japan's oligopolistic capital and conglomerates even more fat, and Japan also ran Manchuria with its opium business as its pillar. The emperor and the chaebol were greatly enriched by the invasion of China.
Although it has been declared that the invasion of China is a runaway of the military, it should be more correctly called "the runaway of the Japanese Empire-military-industrial complex".
Prewar cooperative fraction with the United States goes to postwar conservative mainstream
The post-war period in Japan begins when the Japanese army was dismantled. The army  had run out of control  due to the fall of the Imperial Constitution, which was the independence of the emperor's commander-in-chief. The fall  made it impossible for the Cabinet to command and control the army. The United States' initial occupation policy, led by the Allied General Headquarters (GHQ) Civil Affairs Bureau, is a thorough democratization and demilitarization, which is urgently set out in the draft outline of the Constitution of Japan drafted in March 1946. However, the emperor system is preserved to facilitate the occupation, and the prewar cooperative fraction  with the United States becomes the core to form the early ruler of postwar Japan. They survive by connecting with Wall Street and US intelligence.
The network of cooperative groups with the United States inherited from the old system will be changed as a pro-American conservative. Linked to the yoke of US occupation, they serve as a breakwater against anti-American communization in Japan, which was reborn by the enforcement of the Constitution of Japan in May 1947. Under the serious East-West Cold War structure, the democratization of Japan was suddenly braked, and the pro-US conservatives were handed over to the successor generation as the mainstream of the Liberal Democratic Party (Liberal Democratic Party), which was born by the conservative joint in 1955, and went through twists and turns. However, even today, the de facto one-party rule continues endlessly.

The Liberal Democratic Party has been in power for most of the time since 1955. Behind this one-party, semi-permanent government was the constant will of the United States. In Nagatacho (political world), Kasumigaseki (government world), and Marunouchi / Otemachi (business world), the "Japan-US alliance axis" became an absolute premise = a faith and replaced the emperor's faith. If Japanese Elite  are disbelievers, they will fall out of the circle, so almost everyone will be chanting the "Japan-US Security Axis" and follow Washington's instructions.
Anyway, Japan's elite rulers are monitored and watched by other US and British intelligence agencies in addition to CIA .  And the Japanese public prosecutor's office under their control actually work . All of them are being  frightened by the invisible eyes behind them. Politicians and high-ranking bureaucrats who disobey the United States have been criticized by all media for the "public opinion" created by articles in specific weekly and monthly magazines called guns, and will be subject to prosecution by the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office. Once prosecuted, political life is lost.
Bretton Woods system (World Bank, IMF=Anglo-American's hegemonism),  Japan-US-Europe Trilateral Commission , International finance, petroleum energy industry, nuclear power generation, nuclear fuel cycle, weapons development, assistance to developing countries, etc. It's been a long time since the benefits of following the United States have become vested interests. The elite of government and government assets all try to protect their vested interests. In the 21st century, China's remarkable rise and turmoil can be clearly seen in the business world, but it is not in a situation to disagree with the American faith.
Revival of "Global Britain"
On the other hand, the British Empire, which built an unprecedented marine empire in the 19th century, was exhausted by the two wars, and the colonies that once occupied a quarter of the land became independent one after another and became a hegemonic nation. Was handed over to the United States. However, after the war, Japan is said to be the monopoly territory of the United States, but the British Army was stationed in Japan in February 1946, about half a year after August 1945, as the British Commonwealth Occupation Force consisting of the New Zealand Army, the Australian Army, and the British Indian Army. Has taken over the occupation missions of the Chinese and Shikoku regions from the US military. After the war, Britain was close to the United States as a silent partner.
In Britain, the European Union (EU) secessionist gained power and achieved the secession. Their slogan is "Global Britain". What is the ambition that the United Kingdom has with the United States, which has become an active partner from a silent partner in the United States? That is the main issue of the "Third Modern Japanese Thought".
From "Invasion of China" to "Siege of China"
Although the "invasion of China" has changed to "siege of China," the current situation in East Asia, where the US and European powers once again show off their military presence, is very similar to that of 100 years ago.
In 1918, young Fumimaro Konoe contributed a prominent article, "Eliminating American-British-oriented pacifism," which criticized the League of Nations in the speech magazine "Japan and the Japanese." He insisted that:
"Peace, as the Anglo-Americans say, is to maintain the status quo that is convenient for them, and regardless of justice or humanitarianism, it is'just a nickname for humanitarianism.'" Britain and the United States insist on the battle of democracy and humanitarianism against monopoly and militaryism, and Japanese intellectuals are also intoxicated with the rhetoric of Britain and the United States and consider it to be peaceful and equal humanitarianism. Only Britain and the United States, the rest of the nations have nothing to gain if invited by the nickname of justice and humanitarianism. Indiscriminate treatment ”should be claimed.”
If the "League of Nations" mentioned here is replaced with the "China siege network", Konoe's claim is still convincing.
In addition, the allegation of "indiscriminate treatment of colored races" leads to a protest against US President Wilson, who rejected the Japanese government's request to add a paragraph of racial equality to the Covenant of the League of Nations. Just as Asian contempt is widespread in the United States today in the 21st century, it is deeply rooted in the Western world, which is mainly white, to share the values ​​of "freedom and democracy, human rights, and the rule of law" led by the United States and Britain. With pride, they cannot give up their supremacy to the rising colored race of Asia. From this point of view, it is no exaggeration to say that Communist China and the former enemy Japan are the same enemy.
The United States and Britain take advantage of Japan's inferiority complex
Immediately after the start of the war between Japan and the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which is under the umbrella of the Rockefeller conglomerate and has a decisive influence on the US foreign policy, said, "When occupying Japan, we despise Korea, China, Russia, and Asian countries. We should take advantage of our superiority to the United States and the strong desire to be treated on an equal footing with Western countries including the United States and the United Kingdom. " This recommendation was consistently adopted in the US policy toward Japan after the war. John D. Rockefeller III, who virtually presided over the CFR in January 1951, before the conclusion of the Peace Treaty with Japan, came to the roots of the conclusion of the Peace Treaty with Special Envoy John Foster Dulles, Secretary of State under the Eisenhower administration. Although it was a day, both of them made similar remarks. Taking advantage of the inferiority complex of the yellow race is the basis of the Japanese handle of the American and British rulers. It is consistent to this day.
In particular, John Dulles, who is considered to be the "creator" of the Japan-US Security Treaty, said after signing the peace treaty: "Although it was reformed by the occupation, I doubted that I could trust the Japanese who had a fierce war until 6 to 7 years ago. Behind the negotiations with the United States, I suspected that it might be connected to the People's Republic of China because both are an Asian of the same yellow race. The superiority that the Japanese often had over other Asian countries, on the other hand they have Inferiority complex to such as the United States and the United Kingdom of the "Elite Anglo-Saxon Club". We should use the fulfillment of their longing to join the Western camp against the communist nations to hold back their loyalty to the Western camp. The US-Japan Security Alliance, which re-arms Japan and incorporates it into its western camp, while the dilemma of not being able to trust the Japanese, is to permanently subordinate Japan to the United States. It was solved by building. (John W. Dower, War without mercy, Pantheon Books, 1986)
Build an East Asian community
The US and Britain's "criticism of China's tyranny" is by no means something that can be taken head-on.  The values ​​diplomacy established by the Aso and Abe administrations, that is, the diplomatic stance of confronting China's Communist Party dictatorship and tyranny because it shares universal values ​​with the United States and Europe, was only brought about by the Japan-US security system. .. As the US-UK Anglo-Saxon alliance sees in the Abe Nippon Kaigi administration, Japan, which is ultra-conservative and cannot yet liquidate the madness of the view of imperial historyshould Japan  be truly considered as a "democratic nation that shares values ? I don't think so.
Singapore's Prime Minister Lee refused to choose between "China or the United States" and "security or economy" and chose to coexist with China, which has a different system. Washington is in a state of being overwhelmed in the current ASEAN governments such as Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia, which categorically refuse to participate in the Chinese siege. ASEAN, which has emerged from the former US-led anti-communist coalition and has advanced to an economic community that coexists with China, will serve as a model.
Taking the US-UK slogan that "Japan is the leader of the alliance in the Pacific region" will lead to a further decline in Japan's national power. What should be done in the third term is to learn from the strengths and weaknesses of the European Union (EU), dispel and liquidate the distorted superiority complex to Asian countries, and focus on China, Unified Korea, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in East Asia. The right path is to move on to the formation of a comprehensive cooperation community in the east Asia region.
