Japanese “Deserve Nobel Peace Prize”

Nobel_Prize

Efforts to award the Nobel Peace Prize to “all Japanese citizens” for their 70-year support of a constitution which technically forbids Japan from maintaining any army at all are already proving incendiary – and that is even without the involvement of any Chinese or Koreans.

The petition to award the Nobel Peace Prize to the Japanese people was started by a 37-year-old Japanese housewife whose time spent studying in Australia saw her moved by the realisation that Japan’s pacifist constitution had delivered 70 years of peace.

Since the prize itself can only be awarded to an organisation and not the constitution itself, giving it to the Japanese people seemed the next best thing to her.

Awarding the prize indiscriminately to millions of people is not without precedent either – in 2012 it went to “the European Union” for “advancing the causes of peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe,” by which standards Japan would seem more than worthy.

The petition has attained moderate momentum and looks likely to gain the endorsements needed to at least be considered by the awards committee:

We have organized an executive committee for “Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution for Nobel Peace Prize” and started a petition drive as an effort to share, protect, utilize, and promote its virtue, to The Norwegian Nobel Committee.

The Nobel Peace Prize is intended to be awarded to an organization or person, the Constitution is not eligible. However, the EU was awarded Nobel Peace Prize as an organization.

Thus, we think it is possible that Japanese citizens as an organization, who have continued maintaining the pacifist constitution stipulating thorough renunciation of war, would be awarded it, similarly.

The Japanese citizens may not have reached the stage to actively utilize their constitution. We, however, maintained the constitution which actively renounces war and force for nearly 70 years, throughout the pressure of the entire world to realize things with a weapon, to desire for the happiness and peace for people in the world due to the remorse of the war.

We might say that their contribution to the world peace and stability may have been immeasurably large.

Needless to say that not every Japanese citizen supports the current constitution.

We, however, haven’t revised the constitution at this moment. This is due to the fact that many people in Japan talked about the sorrow and the folly of the war with a remorse and desire for peace after the war, and this desire for peace has been inherited and still deeply exists among them.

We also believe that it is meaningful to share a value “It is laudable to desire for world peace and not to engage in wars, and we protect and share this belief!” toward winning the prize.

At this moment of crisis of the constitutional revision, we hope you understand and help us with our effort to protect, utilize, and promote our pacifist constitution for the world peace.

With the reputation of the Nobel Peace Prize as much more than a left-leaning propaganda prize at something of a low after its award to spymongering incompetent Obama and glorious Internet inventor Gore, there are plenty in Japan who would want nothing to do with it even if offered, along with those who question the very logic of awarding it to a nation dependent on American imperial might for its security:

“This is insane.”

“Who wants that thing!”

“Who needs a western propaganda prize.”

“Just take a look at who they’ve been awarding it to lately to see what a joke it is.”

“The left’s desperation to stop constitutional change is just pathetic.”

“Since Abe is going to change it they are desperate to throw a spanner in the works with stuff like this.”

“Like the pacifist constitution is taken seriously as reason not to attack us… it is the deterrent power of the US and Japanese armed forces which does it.”

“Article 9 can only exist because we are protected behind the shield of American power. How can you claim to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize for a pacifist constitution by relying on the military might of another country?”

“These people don’t want peace. They want Japan to be defenceless and at the mercy of another country.”

“If article 9 is so fantastic go and get China and Korea to adopt it.”

“If they want the rest of the world to renounce war and desire world peace, go and get them to adopt such constitutions.”

“It has been awarded for completely idiotic reasons in recent years. You can keep it.”

“The prize money would amount to like 1 yen for every Japanese citizen.”

“This is nuts. They are just trying to block constitutional reform.”

“The Nobel Peace Prize, awarded to the man with the world’s largest stockpile of nuclear weapons, who begged to invade Syria, and is busy spying on the entire world’s communications. You can keep it.”

    And they have to understand why such constitution was put in the first place; the Japanese can be very obsessed.

    Or at least, the top caste of Japanese society who make all the rules anyway. Laymen and laywomen of Japan mostly don't want to give a fuck, and those who do are often not welcomed into politics unless they carry the same brand of hardline ultranationalism that has been greatly aggravated by Abe and his lackeys in recent years. On top of that, there are still standing issues regarding the atrocities during WWII. Of course it wasn't the current gen leaders who oversaw those atrocities, but the fact that they are doing everything they can to deny the atrocities even exist and brainwashing their young ones clean of their ugly history doesn't speak so highly of the Japanese society in general right now.

    Perhaps, with the size that China has reached right now, it would be OK to revise the constitution so that Japan can have its own army again, but with hawks like Abe ruling the current administration, doing so might just be another possible flashpoint for an all out war in Asia Pacific.

    LOL the fuck you smokin?

    Western, especially American history books are FILLED with self-hate bullshit. Whole month dedicated to some shit skin folks and martin luther king memorial day, not to mention special academic standards for amerindians as well as federal aid funds for them.

    Whole chapters and essays are dedicated to how 'evil' we are about all kinds of things, from amerindians to war (hell even ww2), to our role in the world.

    Japs have a few pages that mentions 'incidents'.

    Bitch, go fuck yourself.

    and this is why all the rich people are tax frauds

    It was just given to him because he was the first black president of the USA. People try to deny it and point out some other reason like "He said he was gonna stop the war and disarm the world!" but that's just a crock of shit, and we Americans know it.

    We really hate out current govt. and would actually like the republican administrations back, but all the stupid hipsters and wanna-be-gangstas keep voting Democrat thinking it'll solve they're problems just because it's different from what old people like.

    It's just the Nobel Peace Prize. Don't see why people have to make a big deal about it.

    Personally I think Obama and the Democrats aren't doing the best job, but compared to what the Republicans would do, I'm willing to take my chances with the Democrats. I mean the Republicans lately are barely unified. The Republicans are trying to appease to religious fundamentalists, Tea Party Activists, libertarians, and other smaller movements in order to get their vote.

    Erranty, you do know that it was the republican admin, that got the US into 2 wars, and massive debt, because of those said wars, right. And Obama did end the war in Iraq, after 10 years of of republican pandering, with Bush and hes croonies: "Dick Chaney", and the rest of the republicans.
    Also you are aware that the reason we went unto this rescission, is because of the lax regulations spear headed by Republicans dating back to the 80's right.
    Maybe you should live in Texas where they want to secede from the US. I'm sure you would be happier there.

    Its the least they could do, after taking away japans freedom and making them dependent of the US, but then again, if the US wasn't backing japan, most likely both japan and china and mb korea would be at war already...mb

    Japs have not been taught a proper lesson in ww2. They always blame 'things' for losing the war and laughably think they are the victim.

    In fact, most EU finalcial problems were created by those in control of the money waqnting even more money, specially north european countries and USA. Just pure greed. Telling someone with a minimum wage of 600 euros he has lived an hedonistic lifestyle when yours is 1500 is just plain hipocrisy. It's like telling people in China it's their fault you can't find a job because they do the same job for a pittance.

    You think France has it bad? Try Poland, 400 Euro monthly and I've been working diligently for over 10 years in the same workplace. People who work for private companies earn twice that amount without even trying, meanwhile I rarely ever even get a bonus. I can't afford to quit and look for another job because we're barely scraping by as it is, and due to my work hours I can't even arrange for a job interview.

    That's the definition of a dead end life, lol

    People blame the son for what the father did because the son in this case is still trying to defend the atrocities the father committed. Imagine how Jewish people would feel if the Germans continued to justify the actions their predecessors did during the Holocaust?

    Yeah, Japanese tend to make much more peaceful media than other countries. But I think it's not so much the country itself, but their artists who are great.

    Like most governments, the Japanese government is still run by warmongering chickenhawks who seem to hate art in general.
