PREAMBLE

 

 

            This is the declaration adopted in the Second World Party Convention held in Bangladesh in 2015.  World Party is an international party dedicated to the establishment of the World Federation.  Here, the World Federation is a worldwide federation of independent countries.  In the World Federation, there are the World Parliament, the World Government, and the World Court.  The World Parliament is the parliament composed of delegates from each country.  The World Government is the central government in the World Federation.  The World Court is the court that is, in principle, concerned with international problems.  In the World Federation, the World Parliament is the supreme authority.

            We are the World Citizen.  We the people heartily hope for the world peace and the human happiness.  We believe that our duty is to establish the world democracy.  There are three principles of World Party as shown below.

 

            1. The first priority is the benefits of world as a whole or the benefits of society as a whole.  Benefits of party come after that.  If the world becomes better, our country will become better.  If our country becomes better, our life will become better.

            2. There must not be lie with regard to the policy of World Party.

            3. There must not be corruption in the World Party.  We must be strict with regard to fund.

 

            Basic thought of the World Federation is based on the philosophy that truly good thing shall become a common sense.  We are trying to establish the thoughts and the world system that will exist after 1 thousand years.  If a thought survives after 1 thousand years, it will be a common sense of the world.  We think the World Party will exist after 1 thousand years.  If it comes true, the World Federation will be a common sense of the world 1 thousand years later.

            In the following part, basic thought of the World Party is shown, and declaration and vision are stated in terms of international affairs and domestic affairs in each country.  The declaration shown here has been authorized by the World Party Convention.  This Declaration is the base of authority of World Party and each branch of World Party.

 

 


 

 

I BASIC THOUGHT OF WORLD PARTY

 

 

Basic thought of the World Party is written in a paper

"International Party for the World Government"

http://www.w-g.jp/wgi/library/articles-&-mails/party.htm.

This paper insists that support of people will establish and maintain the World Federation.  If the World Federation is established and maintained, it is neither due to the military power nor the economic power.  It is due to the spiritual power, namely, the support of people.  People support truly good things.  This support of people makes a truly good thing a common sense.  So, if we try to establish the World Federation, it will be a common sense.

 

        1. Basic Benefits of World Federation

 

Basic benefits of World Federation are follows.

 

            1. World Federation can reduce or prevent the war.  This will lead to the reduction in death and wound of people by war, in the destruction by war, and in the military expenditure.

            2. World Federation can issue the international common currency.  This will lead to the removal of fluctuation of exchange rate.

            3. World Federation can provide employment to all the people.  This will lead to the eradication of poverty.

 

Among above three items, the first and the second item need not particular explanation.  They are easily understood as common senses.  The third item needs some explanation.  This is explained in the section 5 Eradication of poverty in chapter II. INTERNATIONAL POLICIES.

 

        2. Organization of the World Party

 

            Organization of World Party is stipulated in

"World Party Statute" http://www.w-g.jp/wp/statute-wp.htm.

            World Party is composed of branches of each country and each country has 1 branch.  The World Party Convention is the supreme body of the World Party and is held once in 4 years.  Seats of the Convention are basically 1 thousand and are apportioned in proportion to population of each country.  Each country can register their representatives as the registered members.  The number of registered members is three times as many as the number of its seats.  For example, if the number of seats is 10, the country can register 30 members as the registered member.  From among these 30 registered members, the country can send 10 delegates as the official delegates.  The number of the maximum votes of each country in the Convention is calculated on the basis of the number of the attending delegates from each country.  In the World Party Convention, the vote may not be entrusted to other delegate.  The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be based on the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  The number of the theoretical maximum votes shall be got by dividing the number of attendants by the number of attending countries.  In the calculation of the number of the maximum votes, votes less than 1 is not taken into calculation.  The calculation shall be made after all the attending delegates have been registered with the Convention.  The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be decided following 2 conditions below.

 

            1. The number of votes of delegates from each country is the number of the theoretical maximum votes or less.

            2. Among countries that satisfy the above condition, the number of delegates of country is the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes.

 

The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be the number of the delegates from a country that satisfies the above 2 conditions.  In other words, the number of the maximum votes of each country shall be the number of votes of a country whose number of votes are same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes and the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes among the countries whose number of votes is same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  An example is as follows.  The country A sends 10 delegates, the country B sends 20 delegates, the country C sends 30 delegates, the country D sends 40 delegates, and so the number of delegates is 100.  And, the number of attending countries is 4.  In this case, 100 / 4 = 25.  So, the number of the theoretical maximum votes is 25.  The delegates from country B is 20 and so less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes and the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes among the countries whose number of votes is same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  So, only 20 members from country C and D are accepted as the delegates.  Some other numerical examples are shown in the World Party Statute.

            World Party has no party member but has 1 branch in each country.  World Party is the International Secretariat of each branch.  Branch of each country has party members.

 

        3. Administration of the World Party

 

The World Federation that we aim to establish is concerned with only limited aspects of society.  Namely, in principle, it is concerned with only the administration of military forces, the issuance of currency, and other political and economic problems that individual country cannot solve alone.  Other aspects of society such as religion, political and economic system like liberalism or communism, industry, agriculture, commerce, science, arts, sports, tradition, and so on are left free to each country.  Politics and religion are divided in the World Party.  Religion is recognized as a private matter and so any religion is allowed in the World Party.

            Basic policy of each branch of World Party must be same as that of the World Party.  Here, basic policy is to establish the World Federation.  But, each branch may have its own policy.  Therefore, each branch may declare either the liberalism or communism.  Namely, a branch of World Party in one country may declare the liberalism and another branch in another country may declare the communism.  Politics and religion are divided in branches also.

            At present, World Federation does not exist.  So the World Party is aiming to establish the World Parliament without the legislative power like the European Parliament.

            Furthermore, there is a system that dismisses inappropriate members.  Inappropriate registered members shall be dismissed by other registered members.  If there is a problem in a registered member, other registered members may object to the membership of the registered member.  When a registered member objects to another registered member, the registered member who objects shall send a document of objection with her or his name and clearly specified reason to the President of the World Party.  The document shall be considered by the Board of Directors and shall be published on the website and in other publications of the World Party.  If the objections reach 5 percent of total number of votes of all the registered members, the Board of Directors shall send, by the name of the President, a notice to each registered member.  In the next step, in the World Party Convention, a motion to dismiss the objected registered members shall be made.  The objected registered member shall not be dismissed when the attending delegates with more than half of the total number of votes of the attending delegates object to the dismissal.  Otherwise, the objected registered member shall be dismissed even if the objections by document are only 5 percent of total number of votes of registered members.

            Even if there is no objection by document, registered members shall be dismissed when the World Party Convention passed a resolution, by more than half of votes of attending delegates, that the registered members shall be dismissed.

            After a registered member has been dismissed, the number of seats for registered member of the branch shall be cut according to the number of dismissed registered members for 4 years from the day of dismissal.  For example, if 2 registered members are dismissed, the number of seats for registered member from the branch shall be reduced by 2 for 4 years from the day of dismissal.  The dismissed member may be registered again after 4 years from the dismissal.

            The Directors of the World Party, namely, the President, the Vice-President, the Secretary-General, the Secretaries, the Public Relations Officer, the Treasurer, and other Directors appointed by the President shall not be dismissed by the above procedure.  The Directors shall be dismissed by impeachment.

 

 


 

 

II. INTERNATIONAL POLICIES

 

 

        1. Respect for the United Nations

 

The bombing on Afghanistan after the terrorists attack in USA in September 2001, and the invasion to Iraq in 2003 were carried out without the recognition of the United Nations.  In 2006, former President of Iraq Saddam Hussein was executed.  The U.S. troops completed withdrawal from Iraq in December 2011.  In 2014, Islamic State was declared.  We must understand that if Saddam Hussein were still the President of Iraq, Islamic State would not have emerged.

            From these things, it can be said that USA, the most powerful country in the world, does not respect the United Nations.  With great power comes great responsibility.  If the most powerful country respects the United Nations, other countries cannot ignore it.  We can say that the respect for the United Nations is the first step to the world democracy.

 

        2. World Parliament Statute and Constitution of World Federation.

 

The World Government Institute is preparing drafts of

 

World Parliament Statute  http://www.w-g.jp/wgi/statute.htm

 

and

 

Constitution of World Federation  http://www.w-g.jp/wgi/constitution.htm.

 

Although these statute and constitution have not been completed yet, basic thought is shown.  The World Party supports the thought of these Statute and Constitution.  In the Statute and the Constitution, basic thought on the World Federation is as follows.

            The figure below shows the process of establishment of the World Federation.  Each country sends delegates to the World Parliament, and seats for the delegates are apportioned in proportion to population.  Total number of seats is basically 1 thousand.  World Party has a branch in each country.  Branch in each country promotes the policy of electing the delegates for the World Parliament.  The World Parliament in the initial stage is a consultative assembly without the legislative power.  If the Parliament functions well, it will get the legislative power and establish the Constitution of World Federation.  World Federation is established following this Constitution.  Within the World Federation, there are the World Parliament, the World Government, and the World Court.  Before the World Federation is established, the World Parliament is administered abiding by the World Parliament Statute.  After the World Federation has been established, the World Parliament Statute is abolished and the World Parliament is administered abiding by the Constitution of World Federation.

 

          A. Seats

 

Seats of each country are apportioned in proportion to population, and method of calculation is shown in a table below.  It is assumed that the world population is 6 billion 829 million and 297 thousand, of which China has 1 billion 345 million and 751 thousand, India has 1 billion 198 million and 3.3 thousand, USA has 314 million and 658.8 thousand, Japan has 127 million and 156.2 thousand, and Assumed Country has 1 thousand.

 

Process of Establishing the World Federation

 

 

Total number of delegates is basically 1,000, and the seats are apportioned in proportion to population.  So, in case of China, the votes are 197.0556.  Similarly, India has 175.4212 votes, USA 46.0748 votes, Japan 18.6192 votes, and Assumed Country 0.0001 vote.  This is adjusted into integer by rounding up or down the first decimal place.  The first decimal place is rounded up if it is not zero, and it is rounded down if it is zero.  In case of a country that has vote less than 1, the decimal place that is not zero and the closest to the decimal point is rounded up.  In case of China, the first decimal place is zero.  So, it is rounded down and the adjusted votes are 197.000.  So, the official delegates are 197.  In case of India, the first decimal place is not zero.  So it is rounded up and the adjusted votes are 176.000.  And so the official delegates are 176.  In cases of USA and Japan, the adjusted votes are calculated similarly, and the official delegates are 46 and 19 respectively.  In case of Assumed Country, population is 1 thousand.  So, vote is only 0.0001.  In this case, the fourth decimal place is not zero.  So, this is rounded up to 0.001.  So, this country can send 1 delegate with 0.001 vote.  By this measure, all the votes are classified into 4 classes, 1, 0.1, 0.01, and 0.001.  Therefore, the total number of votes is basically 1,000, but the actual total number of delegates and that of votes are slightly more than 1,000 respectively.  Furthermore, as shown below, there are some conditions for participation in the World Parliament.

          B. Registration

 

Successful candidates of election in each country must get registered with the World Parliament at least 1 year before the opening of the Parliament.  Registered successful candidates (hereafter, registered member) may attend the Parliament as the official delegate 1 year after the registration.  But, registered members who were registered in the previous term may be the official delegate soon after the registration.

            Each country may register the registered members 3 times as many as the number of seats in the Parliament.  For example, if the seats of a country in the Parliament are 10, the country may have 30 registered members.  From among these 30 registered members, the country may send 10 delegates as the official delegate.

 

          C. The Number of the Maximum Votes

 

            In the World Parliament, the vote may not be entrusted to other delegate. The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be based on the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  The number of the theoretical maximum votes shall be got by dividing the number of attendants by the number of attending countries.  In the calculation of the number of the maximum votes, votes less than 1 is not taken into calculation.  The calculation shall be made after all the attending delegates have been registered with the Parliament.  The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be decided following 2 conditions below.

 

            i - The number of votes of delegates from each country is the number of the theoretical maximum votes or less.

            ii - Among countries that satisfy the above condition, the number of delegates of the country is the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes.

 

            The number of the maximum votes of each country shall be the number of the delegates from a country that satisfies the above 2 conditions.  In other words, the number of the maximum votes of each country shall be the number of votes of a country whose number of votes are same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes and the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes among the countries whose number of votes is same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  An example is as follows.  The country A sends 10 delegates, the country B sends 20 delegates, the country C sends 30 delegates, the country D sends 40 delegates.  So, the number of delegates is 100, and the number of attending countries is 4.  In this case, 100 / 4 = 25.  So, the number of the theoretical maximum votes is 25.  The delegates from country B is 20 and so less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes and the closest to the number of the theoretical maximum votes among the countries whose number of votes is same as or less than the number of the theoretical maximum votes.  So, only 20 members from country C and D are accepted as the legates.

            For the detail of calculation, see the World Parliament Statute or the Constitution of the World Federation.

 

          D. Dismissal of Inappropriate Members

 

If there is a problem in a registered member, other registered members may object to the registered member.  For example, if a registered member was not directly elected by people, other registered members can object to it.  When a registered member objects to another registered member, the member who objects shall send a document of objection with her or his name and clearly specified reason to the President of World Parliament.  The objections from each country shall be published through Internet and other publications.  If the objections reach 5 percent of total votes of all the registered members, the President shall send the documents to each registered member, and a motion to dismiss the objected registered member shall be made in the session of the World Parliament.  In the session of the World Parliament, when the attending delegates, with more than half of the total votes of attending delegates, object to the dismissal, the objected registered member shall not be dismissed.  Otherwise, the objected registered member shall be dismissed even if the objections by document are only 5 percent of total votes of registered members.

            The registered members from each country and region must be those directly elected by people.  So, even if a country under dictatorship registers the members without election, they will be objected by other registered members and dismissed following a procedure stipulated by the World Parliament Statute or the Constitution of the World Federation.

 

        3. The Supreme Authority in the World Federation.

 

Thus inappropriate registered members of the World Parliament are dismissed by other registered members.  By this system, even if 3,000 members have been registered, the registered members may become only 10 members due to the objection.  Furthermore, it may take 3 years to complete the process of dismissal while the term of office of the parliament member is 4 years.  But this remaining 10 members will become the definite authority, and the resolutions that the 10 members pass in the remaining 1 year of the term of office will get the supreme support of people.

            In the Constitution, the system of the World Federation is not under the separation of three powers, the legislation, the administration, and the judicature.  As shown in the figure, the World Parliament appoints and dismisses the Prime Minister of the World Federation and the judges of the World Court.  Thus the World Parliament is the supreme authority in the World Federation.

 

        4. Reason Why We Need the World Parliament.

 

There is a definite reason why we have to establish the World Parliament.  The World Parliament is a place for dialogue.  Development of technology such as airplane, engine, electricity, and computer has been contributing to the civilization.  But, in a sense, dialogue by people is much more important than the technology.  In the primitive age when there was no agriculture, it seems that people were very poor.  But they could live somehow.  In the feudal age when there was agriculture, most people were poor but there were some surplus in the society as a whole.  Namely, although there was no professional soldier and no landlord in the primitive age because society was too poor, there was some surplus and so there were professional soldiers and landlords in the feudal age when there was agriculture.  Professional soldiers and landlords do not produce the necessities of life.  So there must be surplus in a society as a whole when they exist.  For example in Japan in the Edo Period (1603-1867), there were Samurai and landlords.  Samurai was professional soldier of Japan in feudal age.  Thus, even in a society where people are cultivating land and carrying loads with cow or horse, there is surplus in the society as a whole.  This means that if all people are good people and they solve all the problems by dialogue, there is no war and no poverty even in a society where people are cultivating land and carrying loads with cow or horse.  Although, in the present age, technology is incomparably higher than that of the feudal age, war has not been eradicated yet.  So, we can say that technology is important for human happiness but dialogue by all the people is much more important.  So, if we want to make world better, we must try to solve problems by dialogue.  This is the reason why the World Parliament is necessary.  Actually, development of technology has been raising our income.  But we can say that development of technology is useless for the world peace if there is no place for dialogue like the World Parliament.

 

        5. Eradication of Poverty.

 

Also eradication of poverty must be considered.  In the present world, there are some extremely poor people.  Basically, they are poor because they have no job.  People could live even in the primitive age.  In the present age, technology is incomparable with that in the primitive age.  But, still, there are poor people.  They are not in the situation that they are poor though they work hard.  Basically, poor people are poor because they cannot get a job.  So, employment must be provided.  World System based on the World Federation can improve this situation.

            We need to provide them job to eradicate the poverty.  In order to provide jobs to unemployed people, we must construct offices or factories or schools, etc. to employ them even if the offices or the factories or the schools are in the red.  If each country takes this policy, the country must lose the power for international competition.  For example, if a country constructs a factory making cars to employ people even if the factory is in the red, the country must lose the power for international competition.  But if all the countries are in the World Federation, each country can take this policy to employ people.  A policy to provide employment by constructing a factory in the red may seem to be ridiculous.   But, at least, it should be tried.

 

        6. Mahatma Gandhi Initiative.

 

World Party recommends nonviolence and disobedience.  Mahatma Gandhi led India to independence by this method.  Since the independence of India in 1947, India has been an independent country.  Here, we should think why Afghanistan and Iraq were attacked and occupied while India is not attacked and occupied.  Needless to say, India has nuclear weapons and this is one of the reasons for independence of India.  But we can think that nonviolence and disobedience are the essential cause of the perpetual independence of India because India got the independence by the policy of nonviolence and disobedience without the nuclear weapons.  The policy of nonviolence and disobedience is named Mahatma Gandhi Initiative.  This policy is one of the basic policies of World Party.

 

        7. Improvement of Education.

 

Education must be always reviewed and improved.  While there are many problems in the education in each country, there is one important aspect in education.  The problem is the contents of education about the woman-man relation and the family relation.  In most of the countries, education is recommended.  But in some countries, education is prohibited for women.  In Pakistan in October 2012, Ms. Malala Yousafzai was shot by a gunman of Islamist group.  She miraculously recovered from a wound.  She is a young lady insisting on the women's right of receiving education and got the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.  In Nigeria in April 2014, about 230 school girls were kidnapped from classroom by Islamist group.  Islamist group sometime take television and computer from a home of ordinary people and destroy them.  In countries such as USA, European countries, Japan, etc., in general, this opposition to education is not understood.

            Here, we can distinguish two types of countries.  One is the countries such as USA, European countries, Japan, etc.  One is the countries such as India and Islamist countries.  India is not the Islamist country.  Majority of Indian people are Hindu.  But woman-man relation is similar in both India and Islamist countries.  In the former countries, love affair between women and men without marriages is free.  In the latter countries, such love affair is strictly forbidden.  It is said that in Pakistan, hundreds of people are killed due to woman-man relation that is forbidden by Islam.  People in the former countries do not understand why the love affair is forbidden in the latter countries.  They think that forbidding love affair is undemocratic or feudalistic.  In the former countries, women and men associate with each other and say good-by easily.  In this process, sex is free.  As a result, atmosphere of society as a whole has become lonely or empty, and divorce rate is high.  For example, in recent Japan, one couple out of each three couples divorces.  In this point, the latter countries are wonderful.  Most women and men have no sexual experience before marriage.  The atmosphere of society as a whole is not lonely or empty.  Most people are feeling happy.

            If we understand these things, we can know why the education of the former countries is not accepted in the latter countries.  The reason is simple.  People in the latter countries think that the education that is based on the education of former countries destroys the traditional and healthy woman-man relationship of the latter countries.

            Also honor killing can be explained by this thought on the woman-man relation.  When woman and man have a love affair without marriage, they are sometimes killed.  This is not understood by people in Europe, USA, Japan, etc.  But the reason is simple.  They want to protect traditional and healthy woman-man relation.  It is said that there was no honor killing before.  At least it seems that the honor killing was less before.  We can easily imagine the reason for it.  Before movie and TV are diffused, woman-man relation was traditional and healthy everywhere in the world.  But after the diffusion of movie and TV, some people began to enjoy sex without marriage in European countries, USA, Japan, etc.  On the other hand, in India and Islamist countries, people do not accept this culture.  So honor killing has emerged or increased.

            Development of science is very important.  But, no matter how science develops, we must get old and die, and there are woman and man in this world.  So if we want to be happy and enjoy life, we must build a healthy woman-man relation and build a happy family.  In developed countries with high level of science and income, though there are many fantastic things that do not exist in poor countries, atmosphere of society as a whole is somehow lonely and empty.  This seems to be because woman-man relation is too loose in developed countries.  At first, we should think of building a healthy woman-man relation and a happy family.  After that, we should think of development of science and earning money.

            This is the basic reason why Islamist groups do not accept the education of the former countries.  If this is correct, we can think out an effective policy to solve this problem.  Namely, we must formulate a new education system or curriculum that does not destroy traditional and healthy relationship between women and men of the latter countries.  If this is achieved, many Islamists do not object to school.  In this point, India is successful.  In India, some people are killed due to woman-man relation every year.  But, school is not objected.  This is because healthy woman-man relation is not destroyed in the education of Indian school.  In India, there are many people who take bribe.  Although they are not killed for taking bribe, some people are killed for having woman-man relation that is forbidden by Hinduism.  This shows how they are cherishing healthy woman-man relation more seriously than money.  No matter how the science develops, we must get old and die and there are woman and man in this world.  So we must think of building a healthy woman-man relationship and having a happy family before we think of developing science and earning money.

 

 


 

 

III DOMESTIC POLICIES

 

 

World Party promotes and recommends the following policies for each country.

 

        1. China

 

Present China is growing in many aspects of society.  Especially, economy is growing steadily.  It seems that the most serious problem in China is the situation of politics.  It is reported that uprising occurs frequently.  Politics in China is dominated by the Communist Party.  In the future, multiple parties should be allowed to promote the democracy in China.  World Party China is very beneficial for China because the seats in the World Party Convention are in proportion to population although one country can have the votes, basically, up to the maximum number of votes that is calculated from the total number of votes of attending delegates.  Political party that cooperates internationally can promote the democracy in countries where the democracy is difficult because people in the world gather and form a party.  World Party recommends Chinese people that China should admit the multi-party system.

 

        2. Japan

 

          A. Traditional Politics and Future Politics of Japan

 

While there are many problems in the world, there are many problems in Japan also.  In nowadays, some serious problems of modern society of Japan are more and more getting worse.  Japan is an industrialized country, but the politics is not perfectly democratic.  With regard to the politics of Japan, we must understand the good aspect and the bad aspect of traditional politics of Japan and think of the desirable future politics of Japan.

 

          B. Traditional Politics

 

Traditional politics of Japan can be said, in a word, "The politics of Bushi (Samurai, ancient warrior in Japan)".  As the famous phrase "The way of Bushi is to die" says, Bushi ruled over people with the power of spirit of fighting at the risk of their life when it is necessary.  Seppuku or Harakiri (a ritual in which Bushi stab belly by sword and commit suicide to take responsibility) is famous in the world.  On the other hand, Bushi made their livelihood by collecting tribute from farmers.  There was a serious problem in the finance of the society ruled by Bushi.  Economy of Japan went bankrupt many times since the Kamakura Period (1192-1333).  In Kamakura Period, Kamakura Shogunate (Japan's feudal government at Kamakura) issued Tokuseirei (an order of cancelling debts or of bilking) in 1297.  Namely the Shogunate went into default.  And, 36 years later in 1333, the Shogunate collapsed.  In Muromachi Period (1336-1467), Shashaku (people engaged in transport business by renting wagons), Bashaku (people engaged in transport business by renting horses), and farmers got the Tokuseirei from the Muromachi Shogunate (Japan's feudal government at Muromachi, Kyoto) in 1441.  Twenty-six years later, the Ōnin War broke out in 1467 and the country entered into the Warring States Period (1467-1590).  In this age, Japan was in the anarchy for more than 100 years, and each country fought to unify Japan.  In the Edo Period (1603-1867), Tadakuni Mizuno of Edo Shogunate (Japan's feudal government at Edo (present: Tokyo)) who implemented the Tenpo Reform from 1841 issued the Kienrei (an order of cancelling debts) and exempted the part of debts of Hatamoto and Gokenin (direct and low-grade retainers of Shogun who was the commander-in-chief of an expeditionary force against the barbarians and was the head of the Shogunate), and tried to extract a huge amount of government funds from merchants.  These government funds were, as it were, forced public bonds because they were to be refunded with interest.  Furthermore, he issued a great amount of money by lowering the quality, and so the inflation occurred.  And, 26 years later, the Shogunate collapsed in 1867.  Considering like this, we can see that the present age resembles very well the age when a regime collapsed and a new regime emerged.  Namely, in the present age, the deficit of the national finance is swelling, and the state is going bankrupt.  It is said that the debt of state is 200 percent of GDP.  The Abe Cabinet, that started in 2012, has been promoting the easy-money policy.  The policy is not essentially different from the Tenpo Reform in the Edo Period, and the result is clear.  In Kamakura Period, Muromachi Period, and Edo Period, Shogun was appointed by Emperor and ruled Japan, and in these period, the Tokuseirei and the Kienrei were issued.  The Emperor is hereditary and so people around the Emperor was also hereditary, and this made the state go bankrupt.  In the present age, government is Shogunate, and the national bankruptcy similar to that in the feudal age is going to happen.  This is the traditional politics of Japan.

            The mechanism of regime collapse can be explained as follows.  Sometime the Emperor itself ruled a country or sometime customarily appointed the ruler.  Thus, while Emperor System itself has continued, the ruler of country has changed many times under the Emperor.  The reason why some regimes have repeated the rise and fall is that the Emperor System is a hereditary system.  The Emperor is hereditary and so the privileged classes around the Emperor are also hereditary.  For example, at the Edo Shogunate also, Shogun was appointed by the Emperor.  But there emerges a gap between the privileged classes such as Emperor, Shogun, Hatamoto and Gokenin, Daimyo (feudal lord) and other people because the privileged classes are hereditary.  The Shogunate promoted the purge of outside Daimyo (Daimyo who was not a hereditary retainer of the Tokugawa clan who were the head of the Edo Shogunate) and, on the other hand, favored Hatamoto and Gokenin in order to maintain the regime.  Inevitably, the finance of Shogunate becomes tight.  The Shogunate issued the Kienrei, and recast coins and boosted the volume in order to compensate the deficit.  Thus, in this process, the complaint of people accumulated and the Shogunate collapsed.  This can be said for the Kamakura Shogunate and the Muromachi Shogunate before the Edo Shogunate also.  Needless to say, in the present age, the government corresponds to the Shogunate.  Although Japanese economy is in recession, financial assets of people are more than 2 times as large as the GDP and Japan is one of the top class creditor nations in the world.  So, the financial deficit is the responsibility of the government.  Whether it is the Shogunate or the government, this is repeated as far as the man of power rules the country by revering the Emperor.  Namely, it is the state slavery.

            When we think of traditional politics of Japan, we must consider the politics of Japan at the time of World War II.  The politics of this time constitutes another aspect of the politics of Japan.  Here, we need to review the history of prewar period when there was no foreign troop in Japan.  The following is an outline of history of modern Japan.

 

1853  Commodore Perry from USA came to Uraga (a town near Tokyo).  Next year, US-Japan Peace Treaty was concluded.

1861  Civil War in USA

1867  Restoration of Imperial Rule.  The fall of Edo Shogunate (Japan's feudal government at Edo (present: Tokyo))

1874  Dispatch of troops to Taiwan

1889  Promulgation of the Constitution of Great Japanese Empire.  Establishment of prewar Emperor System

1894  Sino-Japanese War

1904  Russo-Japanese War

1910  Annexation of Korea

1914  World War I

1920  Entry into the League of Nations

1931  Manchurian Incident

1932  5-15 Incident.  Prime Minister Tsuyoshi Inukai was murdered.

1933  Withdrawal from the League of Nations

1936  2-26 Incident.  Finance Minister Korekiyo Takahashi and others were murdered.

1939  World War II

1941  In November, USA presented the Hull=Note that required concessions such as the withdrawal of Japan from China and Vietnam.  In December, the Pacific War.

1945  The end of the war.  Next year, announcement of the Constitution of Japan.  Emperor became the symbol of Japan.

 

Like this, until the US Commodore Perry came to Uraga in 1853, Japan was in the Edo Period and almost completely under the isolation policy.  Until then, Japan had been ruled by the Edo Shogunate and Emperor had been customarily respected as the head of Imperial Palace.  Each feudal clan against the Edo Shogunate gathered under the Emperor in order to overthrow the Edo Shogunate.  After the fall of Shogunate, the Constitution of Great Japanese Empire was promulgated in 1889 and the constitution expressly prescribed that the Emperor shall rule Japan.  In 1945, the World War II ended, and in 1946, the Constitution of Japan was promulgated and the Emperor lost the political power and became the symbol of Japan.  In the Edo period the Emperor customarily appointed the Shogun of Shogunate, from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) until 1945 he ruled Japan for himself, and in the postwar period he became the symbol and appoints the Prime Minister following the nomination by the Diet.  Like this, Japan has changed from a feudalistic country to a democratic country in less than 100 years.  History of democracy of Japan is still shallow as compared with that of USA where the domestic war was eradicated and the democracy was established after the Civil War in 1861.  And above all, the democracy in Japan has been maintained under the presence of US army in Japan and has not been maintained by the force of Japanese itself.

            As for the history of wars of Japan with foreign countries, Japan advanced to Asia step by step.  When Japan advanced to Manchuria and caused the Manchurian Incident in 1931, the Chinese Nationalist Party appealed to the League of Nations and the League, accepting this, dispatched the Lytton Investigation Committee to Manchuria.  In 1932, in Japan, 5-15 Incident were carried out by young officers of navy who supported the Emperor.  In this incident, Prime Minister Tsuyoshi Inukai was murdered.  He was a democratically elected Prime Minister.  So, after this incident, infant democracy of Japan was destroyed and the Prime Minister was virtually appointed by the military forces.  In 1933, the general assembly of the League of nations passed, with favor 42 : objection 1 : abstention 1 (the objection is Japan and the abstention is Thailand), the advisory opinion toward Japan that required the withdrawal from Manchuria and other concessions.  But Japan withdrew from the League.  In 1936, in Japan, 2-26 Incident were carried out by young officers of the army who supported the Emperor.  In this incident, Finance Minister Korekiyo Takahashi, and others were murdered.  Although the rebel army was suppressed and punished, 5-15 Incident and 2-26 Incident made the parliamentarism powerless and Japan proceeded to the militarism.  There is an opinion that, in 1941, USA came up with the Hull=Note that contained the unacceptable requirements such as withdrawal from China and Vietnam, and so Japan had to open the war against USA.  But we must not forget that at the point of withdrawal from the League, Japan had already been on the route of invasion.  We can think that if the powerful troop like US army were staying in the country, 5-15 Incident and 2-26 Incident did not occur and the democracy did not collapse.  Japan and Germany are same in the point that the democracy which was established to some extent collapsed.  On the other hand, in the present day, Japan has become a democratic and peaceful country.  But they are the democracy and the peace under the presence of US army in Japan based on the US-Japan Security Treaty.  Namely, the democracy and the peace of Japan are not maintained by the force of Japanese itself.  If the Security Treaty is denounced and the US army withdraws from Japan, Japan will enter into the situation under which military coups like those in prewar period may occur, the parliamentarism loses its power, and the militarism may come.  But Japan is same as a colony as far as the troop of foreign country is staying in the country like now.  This is obvious, if we see the present diplomacy of Japan.  It is a natural stream that Japanese will try to recover the dignity of independent country.  But, if the US army withdraws from Japan, the situation will be same as the prewar period.

 

          C. Future Politics

 

Like this, if we think of the traditional politics of Japan, the future politics of Japan necessarily becomes visible.  Needless to say, there are a lot of wonderful things in the traditional politics of Japan also.  Especially, it seems that the authority of the Emperor was the most important reason why Japan did not become a colony.  But, on the other hand, there are many points that must be improved.  The indispensable improvement to prevent the bankruptcy of national finance and the militarism is to abolish the Emperor System and to introduce the President System.  Considering what Japan did in Asian countries in wartime, that Japan was defeated in the war after atomic bombs were dropped, and that the top of political regime of Japan was the Emperor, this is the inevitable conclusion.  In the process of abolishing the Emperor System and introducing the President System, we must watch the attitude of members of Self-Defense Forces so that the Forces will stay under the civilian control.  Persons who may revive the militarism must not be given important positions in Self-Defense Forces.

            Needless to say, the Emperor does not disappear even if the Emperor System is abolished.  World Party Japan thinks that the Emperor is a great tradition of Japan, but it should not be in the political system but in the private sector and should be respected privately or customarily.  Like status and holly land such as the Pope and Vatican of Christianity, Mecca of Islam, Varanasi of Hinduism, etc. that are respected by custom, the Emperor should be respected privately or customarily.  Namely, political system of Japan must be under the division of politics and religion.  At the time of abolition of Emperor System, compensation such as lump sum, pension, etc. to imperial family and related people will be necessary.  The Emperor will leave the political system and exist as one of citizen and the head of a religious cooperation.  The World Party Japan proposes that following declaration should be adopted in the Diet of Japan.

 

Emperor of Japan has a history of thousands of years.  The Emperor has been an invincible authority for people.  But, in this age, situation of society has changed largely and so we, the members of National Diet of Japan, must reconsider the place where the Emperor should be.  We think that the Emperor should not be in the political system of society but should be in the private sector of society.  So we amend the Constitution of Japan.  We heartily request the Emperor to pray for the people in Japan forever and we wish the Emperor will exist forever in this sun-rising country.  Here, we, the members of National Diet of Japan, resolve this.

 

Furthermore, the World Party Japan proposes that the Emperor should issue prizes whose prize money is bigger than that of the Nobel Prize.  The budget for this prize is provided at least for 20 years after the abolition.  Thus, legally, the Emperor System is abolished, but, customarily, the authority of the Emperor will be higher than before the abolition.

            All the states do not go bankrupt necessarily.  In United Kingdom and USA where the Anglo-Saxons are dominant, there is no state bankruptcy.  In United Kingdom where democracy was born, there has been no state bankruptcy since the Glorious Revolution that started in 1688.  In the Napoleonic Wars that occurred from 1803, it was hard but United Kingdom withstood it.  Recently, there is a reform by the Prime Minister Thatcher who was the Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990.  She analyzed the situation minutely, implemented what should be done with iron will, and got a nickname "Iron Lady".  On the other hand, in USA from 1981 to 1989, Reagan was the President, and he implemented a reform called the Reaganomics.  In USA in 2013, while the President was Obama, it was in the situation of financial crisis, namely, crisis of default.  But the crisis was overcome after all.  But, in Japan, as we can see in the history of Japan, the Tokuseirei or the Kienrei was issued, and the national finance went bankrupt many times.  So, easy-money policy that is based on the theory of Keynesian economics that aims to control the effective demand is not applicable in Japan.  Appropriate administration of economy following the Keynesian economics is possible in country where the national finance does not go bankrupt like United Kingdom and USA.  Because of the traditional politics of ruling class of Japan that sill continues even in the present age, the redemption of national bond will be stopped or, due to inflation, national bond will become no better than wastepaper before long.  Furthermore, if the national finance goes bankrupt, we cannot draw our deposit from bank.  The state bankruptcy is an evidence that the state is not a civilized state.  When a state went bankrupt due to the traditional politics of ruling class, ordinary nation must clear up the mess of the ruling class.  The ruling class is trying to tax asset that diligent nation saved by harsh thrift.  A politician shamelessly says, "The financial asset of nation is 200 percent of GDP.  Can't we make this usable for the state?".  Namely, the traditional political regime is the state slavery.

            Then, when will the movement of abolishing the Emperor System and introducing the President System take place among the whole nation? Basically, following 3 cases are possible.

 

          1. When a motion of amending the constitution is made to the National Diet.

          2. When the state bankruptcy occurred.

          3. When the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty is denounced and the U.S. troop withdraws from Japan.

 

When one of these three happened, the debate for the abolition of the Emperor System will occur among ordinary people.

            In the present National Diet, even the parliamentary investigation right is not utilized.  In the article 62 of constitution, the right to conduct investigations in relation to government is stipulated as, "Each House may conduct investigations in relation to government, and may demand the presence and testimony of witnesses, and the production of records".  But, actually, although the Ministry of Finance makes a budget that is the cause of the state bankruptcy every year, the parliament members, who were elected by election, do not utilize this right.  It is said that there are funds called the buried gold in each ministry, but the Diet members do not investigate this utilizing this right.

            It is highly probable that among three conditions above, the amendment of constitution and the state bankruptcy will occur in the near future.  Democracy, where a person who is in the hereditary position is neither a symbol of state nor the governor of a state but those who were elected by election administer the politics, is the inevitability of history.  When one of the above three conditions is fulfilled, the inevitability or the stream of history will become clear.  Namely, the movement of abolition of the Emperor System or a movement comparable to this will occur.

            The thought on the Emperor System also is based on the philosophy that the truly good thing shall become a common sense.  If we say or do something against a common sense, we are laughed at.  For example, if we try to use kerosene lamp instead of electric light, we are laughed at.  Or, if we try to ride horse or camel instead of car or motorcycle, we are laughed at.  Or, if we try to abolish the Olympic Games or the world cup of soccer, we are laughed at.  Or, if we try to abolish the compulsory education system, we are laughed at.  Thus the truly good things shall become common sense.  But, the thought of abolition of the Emperor System is not laughed at.  If the Emperor System is a truly good thing and has been established as a common sense, the thought of abolishing the Emperor System must be laughed at and ignored.  Conversely, after the Emperor System has been abolished and the President System has been introduced, we will be laughed at if we try to restore the Emperor System.  This is just like that if we try to abolish the National Diet and restore the Edo Shogunate, we will be laughed at.  Thus truly good thing shall become common sense.  So we must consider how common senses will be.

            If the Emperor System is abolished, an authority that rules Japan instead of the Emperor is necessary.  Without the authority, civil war shall break out in country.  In the World Federation, the supreme authority is the World Parliament, and the authority of the President System in Japan is the President, National Diet, and the Court.  Pillars that support these authorities are international political parties like the World Party.  The World Party was, aiming to be a political party that will exist even after 1,000 years, founded based on these thoughts.  This is written in also World Party Declaration adopted in the World Party Convention held in Ghana, Africa, in 2011.  The World Party Convention is held once in four years.

            The World Government Institute Japan is preparing a draft of new constitution of Japan.  This is published as

 

New Constitution of Japan http://www.w-g.jp/wgi/japan/constitution-wgij.htm.

 

This constitution is based on the thought of World Citizen.  The most important feature is that the Emperor System is abolished and the President System is introduced.  The World Party supports this Constitution.

 

        3. North and South Korea

 

Needless to say, North Korea and South Korea were one country before the World War II.  So, nation is same in both countries.  North Korea is an independent country and no foreign troop is staying.  If North Korea is invaded, China will assist North Korea.  Recently, North Korea developed nuclear bomb.  On the other hand, South Korea is also an independent country but U.S. troop is staying.  In this situation, it is clear that Korean peninsula will be ruled by North Korea if U.S. troop withdraws from South Korea.  Korean people hope unification of Korean peninsula but people in South Korea do not hope the unification by the force of North Korea.

            In this situation, United Nations can play its role.  United Nations should make a road map for unification of Korean peninsula.  In this road map, leaders of North Korea should be exempted from any punishment for crimes, and their status and asset should be secured to some extent.  U.S. troop continues to stay in South Korea but must not advance to North Korea.  Under these conditions, election of the President of unified Korea should be conducted.  These can be carried out under the observation of United Nations.

 

        4. USA

 

USA is the most powerful country in the world.  Politics is democratic and economy is the biggest in the world.  Its role in the international society is great.  But international policy of USA has some serious problems.  The most important problem is that USA does not respect the United Nations.  Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. are examples.  USA carried out air raids on these countries without the resolution of the United Nations.  With great power comes great responsibility.  The most powerful country in the world does not respect the United Nations.  This is a heavy crime.  If the most powerful country in the world respects the United Nations, other countries cannot ignore it.  The World Party recommends people in USA to respect and follow the resolution of the United Nations.  The World Party is not the enemy of USA.  The World Party wants to be a true friend of USA.  So, the World Party recommends the best policy to be taken in the international society.

 

Renewed on 24 September 2015



World Party Declaration

Drafted by Mr Toshio Suzuki, World Party Japan

Declared and Adopted at the World Party Convention

Accra, Ghana, 12 August 2011

Preamble

This is the declaration declared at the World Party Convention held in Ghana in August 2011. World Party is an international party dedicated to the establishment of World Federation and World Government. Here, the World Federation is a worldwide federation of independent countries and the World Government is the central government of federation.

We are World Citizen. We the people heartily hope world peace and human happiness. We believe that our duty is to establish the world democracy. Our basic policy is to establish World Federation and World Government. There are three principles of World Party as shown below.

1. The first priority is the benefits of world as a whole or the benefits of society as a whole. Benefits of party come after that. If the world becomes better, our country will become better. If our country becomes better, our life will become better.

2. There must not be lie with regard to the policy of World Party.

3. There must not be corruption in the World Party. We must be strict with regard to fund.

In the following part, declarations and vision are stated in terms of international affairs and domestic affairs in each country. The declaration shown here has been authorized by the World Party Convention. This authorization is the base of authority of World Party and each branch of World Party. This authorization enables World Party and each branch to get the support of people.

International Policies

Basic benefits of World Federation and World Government are are follows.

1. World Federation and World Government can reduce or prevent the war, and so the destruction by war is reduced or prevented.

2. World Federation and World Government can reduce the military expenditure.

3. Fluctuation of exchange rate will be removed because the World Central Bank will issue the international common currency.

World Government which we aim to establish is concerned with only limited aspects of society. Namely, in principle, it is concerned with only the administration of military force, the issuance of currency, and other political and economic problems that individual country cannot solve alone. Other aspects of society such as religion, political and economic system like liberalism or communism, industry, agriculture, commerce, science, arts, sports, tradition, and so on are left free to each country. Politics and religion are divided in the World Party. Religion is recognized as a private matter and so any religion is allowed in the World Party.

World Party has one branch in each country. World Party is the International Secretariat of each branch. World Party has no personal member. Members of World Party are branches in each country. Branch of each country has personal members.

Basic policy of each branch of World Party must be same as that of World Party. Here, basic policy is to establish World Federation and World Government. But, each branch can have its own policy. Therefore, each branch can declare either the liberalism or communism. Namely, a branch of World Party in one country can declare the liberalism and another branch in another country can declare the communism. Politics and religion are divided in branches also.

At present, World Federation and World Government do not exist. So World Party is aiming to establish the World Parliament without legislative power like European Parliament. Process to establish World Federation and World Government is shown as follows.

As shown above, each country sends delegates to the World Parliament and the delegates are apportioned in proportion to population. Total number of seats is basically 1,000. The World Parliament in the initial stage is a consultative assembly without legislative power. If the Parliament functions well, it will get the legislative power and enact the World Constitution. World Party has a branch in each country. Branch in each country promotes the policy of electing the delegates for the World Parliament. Seats of each country are apportioned in proportion to population, and method of calculation is shown in a table below.

Source of statistics of population is the statistics of United Nations. The date of statistics is June 2009. This statistics is used until World Party Convention in August 2011. World population is 6,829,297.0 thousand, of which China has 1,345,751.0 thousand, India has 1,198,00 3.3 thousand, USA has 314,658.8 thousand, Japan has 127,156.2 thousand, and Assumed Country has 1.0 thousand. Total number of delegates is basically 1,000 and the seats are apportioned in proportion to population. So, in case of China, votes are 197.0556. In this case, the first decimal place is zero. So, it is rounded down and the adjusted votes are 197.000. So, the official delegates are 197. In case of India, the votes are 175.4212 and the first decimal place is not zero. So it is rounded up and the the adjusted votes are 176.000. And so the official delegates are 176. In cases of USA and Japan, the adjusted votes are calculated similarly. In case of Assumed Country, population is 1.0 thousand. So, vote is only 0.0001. This is rounded up to 0.001. So, this country can send a delegate with 0.001 vote. By this measure, all the votes are classified into 4 classes, 1, 0.1, 0.01, and 0.001. Furthermore, there are some conditions for participation in the World Parliament.

1. Delegates to World Parliament have to be directly elected by people. If delegates are sent without election, they are not accepted as official delegates. They can attend as observers.

2. Delegates from each country must get registered to the international secretariat of Parliament as a delegate to Parliament at least one year before the opening of Parliament. But the registration for participation in the Parliament is accepted even on the day of the Parliament.

3. A country can have registered delegates three times as many as the number of seats in the Parliament. For example, if the seats of a country in the Parliament is 10, the country can have 30 registered delegates. From among these 30 delegates, the country can send 10 delegates as the official delegates.

4. If there are problems in the registered delegates, other country can object to the registered delegates. For example, if a registered delegate was not directly elected by people, other country can object to it. The number of votes of objection depends on the number of votes of registered delegates of each country. If the objection reaches 5 percent of total votes of registered delegates, the objected delegates must get the recognition from other countries. The recognition can be got in two ways. One is to get the recognition at the World Parliament. Another is to get it by document. In the former process, the objected delegates can get the recognition when more than half of effective votes recognize the objected delegates. In this case, abstention is not counted. For example, if the number of votes are 1 hundred and 49 are in favor, 48 are against, and 2 are abstention, the recognition is not more than half of total votes. But if the abstention is not counted, the recognition is more than half.

5. The vote of delegate cannot be entrusted. Namely, only attending delegates can have the vote. So, if a country that has 10 votes sends only 5 delegates, the votes of the country are 5.

6. Total vote of a country is, at the maximum, 20 percent of total votes of attending delegates. For example, if attending delegates are 50 and delegates from one country are 30, the votes of the country is 60 percent of total votes. But the effective votes of the country are 50 x 0.20 = 10.

There is a definite reason why we have to establish the World Parliament. World Parliament is a place for discussion. Development of technology such as airplane, engine, electricity, computer has been contributing to the civilization. But, in a sense, discussion by people is much more important than the technology. In the primitive age when there was no agriculture, it seems that people were very poor. But they could live somehow. In the feudal age when there was agriculture, most people were poor but there were some surplus in the society as a whole. Namely, although there was no professional soldier and no landlord in the primitive age because society was too poor, there was some surplus and so there were professional soldiers and landlords in the feudal age when there was agriculture. Professional soldiers and landlords do not produce the necessities of life. So there must be surplus in a society as a whole when they exist. For example in Japan in the Edo Period (1603-1867), there were Samurai and landlords. Samurai was professional soldier of Japan in feudal age. Thus, even in a society where people are cultivating land and carrying loads with cow or horse, there is surplus in the society as a whole. This means that if all people are good people and they solve all the problems by discussion, there is no war and no poverty even in a society where people are cultivating land and carrying loads with cow or horse. But, in the present age, technology is incomparably high as compared with the feudal age, war has not been eradicated yet. So, we can say that technology is important for human happiness but discussion by all people is much more important. So, if we want to make world better, we must try to solve problems by discussion. This is the reason why World Parliament is necessary. Actually, development of technology has been raising our income. But we can say that development of technology is useless for world peace if there is no place for discussion like World Parliament.

Which is better, the League of Nations or the United Nations? In a sense, United Nation is an improved version of League of Nations. But there is, at least, one example that shows that League of Nations is better. In 1931, Japan invaded Manchuria. Manchuria is located in northeastern China and the area is about three times as large as that of Japan. Chinese Nationalist Party appealed to the League of Nations and the League dispatched the the Lytton Investigation Committee to Manchuria. The league, considering the report of committee, passed a resolution with 42 (in favor), 1 (objection by Japan), 1 (abstention) that Japan should withdraw from Manchuria. But Japan withdrew from the League and this led to the war against USA from 1941. On the other hand, at the United Nations, there were some cases that shows the defect of United Nations. The most serious problem is that USA, the most powerful country in the world, does not respect the United Nations. For example, in 2003, USA invaded and occupied Iraq without the resolution of United Nations. USA insisted that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction. But actually, Iraq had no such dangerous weapons that threatens the happiness of American people. It is said that the true reason was to secure the oil deposit that was the second largest in the world. USA must respect and follow the resolutions of United Nations. There are many problems in the world politics. Ignorance of United Nations is one of the most serious problems. United Nations did not passed the resolution that USA should withdraw from Iraq. It seems that the veto was the basic obstacle for this resolution. Thus, at least, with regard to resolution on the Manchurian Incident and Iraq invasion, we can say that League of Nations is better. So we must establish World Parliament.

Also eradication of poverty must be considered. People could live even in the Primitive Age. In the present age, technology is incomparable with that in the Primitive Age. But, still, there are poor people. Basically, poor people are poor because they cannot get a job. So, employment must be provided. World System of World Federation and World Government can improve this situation.

Domestic Policies

Afghanistan and Iraq

On 11 September 2001, four jetliners attacked World Trade Center, Pentagon, etc. About 3 thousand people were killed by this attack. US government judged this to be the attack by Al-Qaeda that was an Islamic warrior group staying in Afghanistan. In October 2001, USA and some other countries implemented air raids on Afghanistan and occupied it. Furthermore, in March 2003, USA and other forces attacked Iraq and occupied it. USA insisted that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction . These two attacks were conducted without the resolution of United Nations. Since then, Afghanistan and Iraq have been occupied by USA and coalition forces, and suicide attack by Islamic warriors sometimes happens. It is said that at least 900 thousand people have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since the attack by U.S. troop and coalition forces. USA attacked these countries without resolution of United Nations. This is very bad. But, suicide attack by Islamic warriors is also bad. Like the attack on 11 September 2001, suicide attack to other countries give reason for occupation of a country where suicide attackers are staying.

World Party recommends nonviolence and disobedience. Mahatma Gandhi led India to independence by this method. Since the independence of India in 1947, India has been an independent country. Here, we should think why Afghanistan and Iraq were attacked and occupied while India is not attacked and occupied. Needless to say, India has nuclear weapons and this is one of the reasons for independence of India. But it seems that nonviolence and disobedience are the essential cause of the perpetual independence of India because India got the independence by the policy of nonviolence and disobedience without the nuclear weapons. The policy of nonviolence and disobedience is named Mahatma Gandhi Initiative. This policy is one of the basic policies of World Party.

China

Present China is growing in many aspects of society. Especially, economy is growing steadily. It seems that the most serious problem in China is the situation of politics. Politics in China is dominated by the communist party. In the future, multiple parties should be allowed to promote the democracy in China. World Party China is very beneficial for China because the seats in the World Party Convention is in proportion to population although one country can have up to 20% of total votes of attending delegates. Political party that cooperates internationally can promote the democracy in country where the democracy is difficult because people in the world gather and form a party. World Party recommends Chinese people that China should admit the multi-party system.

Japan

At present, in Japan, the most serious problems in politics and economy are that Japan may return to the militarism if the U.S. troop withdraws from Japan and that national finance of Japan is going bankrupt. Especially, the second problem is going to happen soon. The basic cause of these two problems is in the Emperor System.

With regard to politics, there is a fear that Japan may return to the militarism. In the period from around 1930 to 1945, Japan was under the militarism and the Emperor was at the top of regime. We must not forget the history of war. In 1931, Japan invaded Manchuria. This is the Manchurian Incident. China appealed to the League of Nations, and in 1933, the League passed a resolution with 42 in favor, 1 against (Japan), and 1 abstention that Japan must withdraw from Manchuria. But Japan withdrew from the League. On the other hand, in Japan in 1932, Prime Minister Tsuyoshi Inukai was murdered by young navy officers. This is 5-15 Incident. Prime Minister Inukai was elected democratically. But he was murdered. This incident terminated the infant democracy of Japan. In 1936, 2-26 Incident occurred. About 1,500 army soldiers carried out a coup and killed some important politicians. Participants of these incidents were punished but these incidents destroyed the democracy of Japan. Japan proceeded to the militarism. After these incidents, virtually, prime minister was appointed by the military authority. These incidents are past history, and now Japan is democratic and economy is prosperous. But this situation has been maintained under the existence of U.S. troop. If U.S. troop leaves Japan, the political situation is same as that of period of militarism. Namely, incident like 5-15 Incident and 2-26 incident can occur. So, Emperor System must be abolished and the president system must be introduced. But, even if the Emperor System is abolished, it is possible that the Emperor continues to exist as the head of a religious corporation.

With regard to economy, bankruptcy of national finance occurred sometimes in the history of Japan. In that age, Japan was ruled by Shogunate and the head of Shogunate was appointed by Emperor. For example, in the Edo Period (1603-1867), Shogunate had to issue the order to bilk the debt. In present Japan, national finance is going bankrupt. Debts of government are about 200% of GDP of Japan. So, in the near future, government of Japan will have to take measures such as stopping redeeming national bonds. Bankruptcy of national finance is due to the traditional politics of Japan. Namely, Emperor is hereditary, and so privileged people around Emperor make the economy go bankrupt. In the feudal age, privileged people around Emperor were Samurai, feudal warrior of Japan. In the present age, privileged people around Emperor are government officials. Officials of ministry of finance make the budget of national finance Japan. This budget is the cause the bankruptcy. In order to prevent the bankruptcy of national finance, Emperor System must be abolished and the president system must be introduced.

Thus, in order to solve above two problems, Emperor System must be abolished and the president system must be introduced. If Emperor System is abolished, better authority is necessary. If there is no authority, domestic conflict cannot be settled. Namely, Japan may fall into the state of anarchy. World Party Declaration can give the authority to the World Party Japan. This is because the Declaration is declared as the joint statement of all the branches of World Party. Thus political party which cooperates internationally can be an authority better than the Emperor System.

North and South Korea

Needless to say, North Korea and South Korea were one country before World War II. So, nation is same in both countries. North Korea is an independent country and no foreign troop is staying. If North Korea is invaded, China will assist North Korea. Recently, North Korea developed nuclear bomb. On the other hand, South Korea is also an independent country but U.S. troop is staying. In this situation, it is clear that Korean peninsula will be ruled by North Korea if U.S. troop withdraws from South Korea. Korean people hope unification of Korean peninsula but people in South Korea do not hope the unification by the force of North Korea.

In this situation, United Nations can play its role. United Nations should make a road map for unification of Korean peninsula. In this road map, leaders of North Korea should be exempted from any punishment for crimes and their status and asset should be secured to some extent. U.S. troop continues to stay in South Korea but must not advance to North Korea. Under these conditions, election of President of unified Korea should be conducted. These can be carried out under the observation of United Nations.

Somalia

Somalia has many natural resources, and the resources attract many foreign forces. Somalia has no proven oil reserves. But it is said that the reserve of oil is second only to Sudan. And also Somalia has untapped reserves of natural resources such as uranium, iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt and natural gas. Companies from abroad are exploiting these resources. Somalia got independence in 1960. But armed clash has never been eradicated yet. Especially in 1991, civil war broke out, and Somalia enter the situation of anarchy. The United Nations forces intervened in Somalia. But 19 American troops and more than 1,000 civilians and militia were killed in October 1993, and the United Nations forces withdrew in 1995. Now, there are many conflicts including piracy.

In this situation, how will be the role of World Party Somalia? World Party Somalia will get the support of people because it is an international political party. Somalia needs an political party with solid authority.

USA

USA is the most powerful country in the world. Politics is democratic and economy is the biggest in the world. Its role in the international society is great. But international policy of USA has some serious problems. The most important problem is that USA does not respect United Nations. Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc. are examples. USA carried out air raids to these countries without the resolution of United Nations. With great power comes great responsibility. The most powerful country in the world does not respect United Nations. This is a heavy crime. If the most powerful country in the world respects the United Nations, other countries cannot ignore it. World Party recommends people in USA to respect and follow the resolution of United Nations. World Party is not the enemy of USA. World Party wants to be a true friend of USA. So, World Party recommends the best policy to be taken in the international society.

Venezuela

Venezuela got the independence in 1821. Venezuela experienced some coup d'etats since then. Economy of Venezuela is dominated by the production of petrol. The revenue from petrol accounts for about a third of GDP, about 80% of exports, and more than half of government revenues. It is said that the corruption is a very serious problem. Now it is under democracy under the administration of Hugo Chávez. But he was the leader of coup d'etat, and the politics is not perfectly stable.

In this situation, World Party Venezuela can play an important role to establish the solid democracy.
