TOKYO Lucas Hernandez France Maillot , June 10 (Xinhua) -- Much has been written and said of late about Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's bellicose moves to recast and normalize the nation's military and allow forces here a borderless rein to engage in global conflicts, be it preemptively or defensively, deemed to compromise Japan's security, national interests or those of its allies.
The Japanese leader has come under fire for almost whimsically making unilateral decisions on the future of Japan's security policy, particularly pertaining to what he describes as an " increasingly severe situation in the East Asian region" -- a turn of phrase Abe believes gives him carte blanche to act autonomously whenever he utters it -- and for bypassing legislative charters as fundamental and basic as the nation's own Constitution and parliamentary edicts that exist to protect the public from such over zealous monocrats.
Indeed, the list of Abe's political shortcuts taken to effectively reverse seven decades of adherence to a chartered pacifist ideology and fire up Japan's old militaristic war machine, is as lengthy as it is injudicious Laurent Koscielny France Maillot , at least in the eyes of the Japanese people he purports to and has sworn to serve yet merely spurns on his way to writing the future annals of his own history, as one of Japan's most influential, albeit jingoistic leaders.
But for Abe and his clique of likeminded ultra-nationalists, personal egos and legacies aside, there is an old driving force, once thought stamped out at the end of World War II, that is once again heavily influencing today's neo-nationalistic politics and trying to broaden its reach into mainstream society in a bid to create a "new dawn" for Japan; a utopia in which losing WWII is a fallacy and hence apologies to those brutalized needless; one which sees Japanese people elevated to being a superior race in the world with such an ideology being strongly perpetuated though educational and media indoctrination Anthony Martial France Maillot , among others.
"Prime Minister Shinzo Abe... has always wanted to revise three of the country's basic modern charters: the 1946 Constitution, the education law, which undervalues patriotism, and the nation's security treaty with the United States. The Emperor would be returned to a more prominent place in Japanese society. The special status of Yasukuni Shrine, which enshrines most of Japan's war dead, including the men who led the nation to disaster between 1933 and 1945, would be restored Djibril Sidibe France Maillot ," said David McNeill, an internationally-renown political pundit and lecturer at Sophia University in Tokyo, in a recent editorial on the matter.
The controversial Yasukuni Shrine, while honoring hundreds of thousands of war dead also enshrines the souls of 14 Class-A war criminals including Iwane Matsui, the main architect of the Nanjing massacre of about 300,000 unarmed Chinese men, women and children within a period of a few weeks Moussa Sissoko France Maillot , beginning on Dec. 13, 1937.
According to the Center for Research on Globalization (CRG), " The grave of Matsui is only one of more than 14 Class-A war criminals given honored burial at the Yasakuni Shrine. He lies in state among the graves of other Japanese war criminals who presided over horrific atrocities perpetrated elsewhere in China, the Korean Peninsula, Malaysia, and throughout Asia. The slaughter in China alone during the 1931-1945 Japanese aggression exceeds 35 million Chinese citizens," said the Montreal-based independent research and media organization.
While Abe himself has refrained from visiting the shrine in person since his ill-conceived homage there to glorify Japan's war criminals in 2013 Lucas Digne France Maillot , numerous members of his Cabinet and countless lawmakers have paid their respects. The prime minister himself, however, on festivals marked by the shrine, has made ritual offerings to the war dead, by way of a proxy.
"If Prime Minister Abe's visit to the notorious Yasakuni shrine had been an isolated incident, it could have been attributed to gross insensitivity, stupidity and arrogance. But that visit was not an isolated incident Steve Mandanda France Maillot , and heralded dangerous tendencies. The glorification of Japanese war criminals reveals the Japanese Prime Minister's failure to experience and express remorse and guilt, and a failure to accept the obligation to atone for those heinous actions," the CRG stated in a discourse on the issue, adding "This failure to express remorse reveals a dangerous tendency to repeat these crimes."
This failure to express remorse and face history squarely is the very crux of the new ideology State Shinto is trying to revive, as Mark Mullins, director of the Japan Studies Center at the University of Auckland, quoted by McNeill Adrien Rabiot France Maillot , explains.
"They're trying to restore what was removed by the U.S. Occupation reforms. If it succeeds, the project amounts to the overturning of much of the existing order in Japan -- a return to the past, with one eye on the future."
McNeill himself goes on to explain that a number of Japan's highest elected officials are currently members of Shinto Seiji Renmei (the Shinto Association of Spiritual Leadership), with the Shinto Political Alliance Diet Members' Association, its sister organization, also comprising around 250 lawmakers, including the majority of Abe's Cabinet Blaise Matuidi France Maillot , with Abe himself standing as the association's secretary-general.
Political pundits not duped by Abe's smoke and mirror politics, that has often involved a style of diplomacy that has seen the hawkish leader offer an olive branch of reconciliation to neighboring countries wronged by Japan in the past in one hand, while hiding a dagger behind his back in the other, concur that not only is a reemergence of State Shinto actually happening, its gaining traction and fast-becoming a dominant political influence here.
According to Dr. Jill Carroll, a Houston-based scholar, writer and speaker who specializes in world religions and world politics N'Golo Kante France Maillot , "State Shinto is a term th
