The Emperor is probably the biggest taboo in Japan so discussing his abdication is even more taboo. Nonetheless, there are many reasons why we need to discuss this issue. First of all the fascistic state Shintoism and Emperor worship installed during the Meiji Era was designed as a colonial policy for ruling Japan. The Japanese were taught to strictly worship the Emperor as a God king without realizing he was taking orders from the British Monarchy. That means they were worshipping the British Monarchy without even knowing it.
The Showa Emperor tried to make Japan and Asia independent during World War 2. After the war he was also successful in the economic policy of overtaking and surpassing the West.
However, at the end of World War 2, Japan was forced to sign a secret treaty that made the Emperor and Japanese Prime Ministers subject to the orders of the Freemason Grand Lodge in England. At the top of the Grand Lodge can be found David Rockefeller and Dick Cheney. Since both the current Emperor and Prime Minister Hatoyama are Grand Lodge Freemasons they must explain to the Japanese people exactly what that means.
Another Japanese taboo that needs to be discussed is the use of North Koreans to rule and terrorize the Japanese citizenry in the post-war era. Many Prime Ministers were North Koreans who acquired Japanese citizenship in order to help enforce colonial rule. In addition, the North Koreans set up fake right wing groups of thugs to terrorize and murder Japanese politicians, journalists, academics and businessmen. They also set up several religious organizations run by North Koreans and filled with brainwashed people. These organizations were used to systematically infiltrate the bureaucracy, the political world and the police.
To this day the Japanese are scared of criticizing the emperor. Canada is under the British Monarchy but no Canadian is scared of criticizing the Queen. Why should the Japanese be terrified of criticizing the Emperor?
During the Heisei reign, the standard of living of the average Japanese person has fallen dramatically and the country as a whole has become somewhat depressed. The period of rule under former Prime Minister Koizumi was especially humiliating for Japan. The Emperor needs, at least once, to tell the people the real truth of their history.
Do not get me wrong, as a foreign born Japanese I have great respect for the Emperor as a symbol of Japan and the Japanese people. The ancient traditions of the Japanese imperial household are a great cultural treasure that should be preserved and spread as part of humanitys cultural legacy. However, an Emperor of Japan should first and foremost look out for the interests of Japan.
