The 6th Prime Minister in these 5 years

Japan will have a new Prime Minister soon.  This will be the 6th Prime minister in this 5 years.  It is embarrassing…  Many Japanese don’t count on the new government, prime minister and politics itself any longer.

But remember a very famous Japanese philosopher Yukichi Fukuzawa.  He is featured on the 10000 Japanese yen bill.

His most famous saying is ‘Everyone is created equal’.  This was made about 130 years ago when the Japanese society was very hierarchical.  And he also said ‘Politics always reflects people.  If the people are smart, they would have a good government.  If the people are not smart, they would have a bad government.’

Now we Japanese should remember what Fukuzawa said before complaining about politics.
