Let's Talk About Our Democracy -Not ideology, not idealism, but the conditions for living in a new era

(著) 上矢洋久



Today, Japan is facing a very difficult time, both internally and externally. Disasters, nuclear power plants, Okinawa, inequality, agriculture, finances, diplomacy with China, South Korea, and North Korea.... Under these circumstances, the question arose as to whether democracy or totalitarianism is better in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am convinced that we must continue to maintain the democracy that we have nurtured through our long human history, but I often wonder if Japan, which is said to be a democratic country, is a democratic country at all. So, although it is truly a shame for a non-academic and uneducated person like me to write about such a difficult issue as democracy, I have created my theory in search of a new democracy and summarized what I have confirmed through its practice.
