On 15 September 2008 Lehman Brothers, the giant US investment bank, went bust.
This was the moment when global financial stress turned into a full-blown international emergency.
My perception of the world has changed since then.
Flow of money reflects the true natures of people and organizations.
Once upon a time, there was a young man, Urashima Taro.
When he was walking along the beach, he found a turtle bullied by children.
He helped and released it to the sea.
A few days later, It appeared before him and said that it wanted to take him to Ryugu, the Dragon palace, which lied under the sea, in return for his help.
He rode on its back and it carried him there.
Ryugu was like heaven.
He was welcomed by the princess, Otohime, there.
She was very beautiful and gave him special treatment.
After staying there for a while, he said to her that he would go to home.
She unwillingly agreed and gave him a jewelry box, Tamatebako, saying that he must not open it.
Having it, he rode on the turtle’s back and the turtle carried him back to the beach.
When he arrived, there was nobody whom Taro knew.
He was very sad and opened Tamatebako.
Then white smoke was rising from it and he had become an old man with white hair and beard.
I do not follow him.
I am not influenced by him.
That is the orgin of my thought.
In the days without the Internet, I had nothing else to do but had been watching in silence Japan being infected with leftism.
When I watched YouTube videos of Makoto Sakurai’s speeches in the Tokyo gubernatorial election in 2016, I was very shocked.
It was impossible until then for a man of my generation to criticize globalism unflinchingly in public.
The wind is contrary. It’s blowing hard.
I am still glad now that I could take part in conservative activities.
People have a wealth of knowledge and talk about moral.
That is good, but they do not sometimes apply the moral to themselves.
It seems as if they live in another dimension world.
Any excellent knowledge will pass through them, while it will influence their surrounding people and apply pressure to them.
That is communism.
Communism, which cannot be bidirectional, is incompatible with Japanese traditional values “wa”, which is bidirectional, and therefore, communism is attractive.
I do not have enough power to fight against it, but do not feel like following it.
I created an account under the name of Mitsuko Nakao on 4 July 2017 on Facebook, and tweeted as follows:
7 July at 9:02 a.m.
I just started Facebook.
Then I found that I could advertise on Facebook and started advertising my web site.
I put the advertisement in not only Japan but also the U.K.
I noticed the next evening that I could not log in to Facebook.
8 July at 18:47 p.m.
My Facebook account has been deactivated. Why? I am a little anxious.
8 July at 20:48 p.m.
An error messege was displayed:
Thank you for sending us your photograph. We will contact you as soon as we confirm it. This account is currently suspended for a security measure. (Translated by me)
They have not contacted me yet.
9 July at 9:35 a.m.
I filled out an application form for reactivating accounts on Facebook Help Center and clicked “Send” button. Then an error message was displayed as follows:
This email address is not registered as suspended account. (Translated by me)
There is nothing I can do about it.
The valid period of my Facebook account was only for a little less than two days after I tweeted that I had started Facebook.
I posted few messages.
I had not had “friends” yet .
I have advertised on Google AdWords after that.
North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan at 3:18 a.m. on 30 Nov. 2017. This was the seventh missile this year that fell within Japan’s EEZ.
I had not heard once on that day that people talked about this incident. People who are close to me who like talking about politics said nothing about this.
People do not talk with each other, when they should do.
A person who says what is necessary when needed is an excellent one.
Japan should arm itself with nuclear weapons.
