"a man better than a sheep"

(Tokyo, yes Tokyo everybody knows in the world)

Let's Surpass the Year 2009 with Coming 2010

Japan is not a nation of "A to Z" or alphabets.

Japan is a nation that uses Kanji and Kana letters and alphabetical expressions.

As nowadays Koreans do not respect Kanji letters, Japan, Taiwan, and China are the major countries using characters invented in ancient China which are called "Kanji" in Japan and "Hanji" in China and Taiwan.

One letter that symbolizes the year 2009 of Japan is as follows, in my choice:

Some Japanese have been really honored this year not because they have won power, wealth, or reputation but mostly they won respect from their neighbours in any field or echelon.

Indeed, Michael Jackson died mysteriously and Mr. Tiger Woods lost honor, but President Mr. Barack Obama together with First Lady have secured their 2009 Christmas with further hope.

Personally, I have further confirmed that the God can do what a man cannot do: cope, endure, and surpass the time and the space...

SECTION I: Japanese and Coins

Japanese people do not love metal coins traditionally.

Ancient Imperial regimes tried to diffuse coinage to follow ancient China, only in vain.

It is after the first samurai regime was established in Kamakura, 40 Km west of Tokyo and 510 Km east of Kyoto the Imperial capital, in the 12th century, that coins came to be widely used among Japanese people.

Nonetheless, Japanese people including samurais liked to use Chinese coins rather than national coins. For 500 years, since the establishment of the first samurai regime, successive samurai governments refrained from striking and issuing official coins.

However Japan imported a huge quantity of coins from China. As it was so extensive and exhaustive, the court of Sung dynasty (960-1279) of China even inhibited export of coins to Japan.

Ancient Japanese people not only lived by barter but they also relied on human networks in a village, a region, or a sub-state in their daily life. Tax was mostly put on rice. Officials sent from Kyoto to local territories must have been able to resort to their dignity and power without using coins as means of purchase.

But, as development of economy allowed the regime change from the Imperial court to samurai regime, coinage also started to be prevailing in Japan with the emergence of the age of samurai. But yet, samurais did not like to strike coins.

Samurai leaders never wanted to depict their faces on coins.

SECTION II: Structure of Human Sphere

Without money and law, human society can stand.

However, it absolutely needs defense force and order.

But yet, without a proprietary means of production or acquisition, men cannot subsist.

Finally, without blessing from God, man cannot develop wisdom and accumulate knowledge.

In this way, priority order in this context must be as follows:
1. Religion
2. Technology and Economic System
3. Force and Order
4. Monetary System and Law

Truly, without Christianity first, today's prosperity in Europe is impossible.

Without Christianity and Judaism, first and subsequently, today's prosperity in America is impossible.

Without Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, and Marxism/Judaism if so relentless, today's success in China is impossible.

Without Hinduism and Buddhism if so ancient, today's potential of India is unthinkable.

Indeed, without original spiritualism, unique Buddhism, and adapted Confucianism, Japan cannot glow on the earth and in history.

Etude No.12 by Shopin in 1833 is for the 2009 Christmas as my humble choice.

Mat 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Mat 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

"to heal on the sabbath days?"


President Mr. Barack Obama's attending the Nobel Peace awarding ceremony made the front page of newspapers in Japan this morning, too.

Since 1860 or 1861 when the American Civil War erupted to end with 600,000 deaths, African American people had still a long way to the U.S. presidency.

As Europe today is making a kind of compensation by implicitly and explicitly supporting Israel, European races must do something as compensation to African Americans, since without European races there should not have been slavery in the U.S. till 1860 or so.

Accordingly, as Mr. Barack Obama's mother was related to Sweden, someone in Oslo, Norway, must have thought it was very appropriate to invite the first African American President Mr. Obama in the most respectful manner, though Mr. Obama had no African American ancestors who were living in America in 1860.

It is tens of millions of African Americans who have ever lived in the United States that received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Truth - The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner: "President Mr. Barack Obama and All the African Americans"


The best American Dream for poor people in the world must be to go to America and become a farmer owning his own farm land of 190 hectares, since "in 1940, there were 6 million farms averaging 67 hectares each. By the late 1990s, there are only about 2.2 million farms averaging 190 hectares in size."

The key to understanding American economy is in the history of American agriculture.
At the time of the American Revolution (1775-83), 95 percent of the population was engaged in farming. Today that figure is less than 2 percent...

Readiness to embrace new technology has been characteristic of American farmers. By the time of the Civil War (1861-65), machines were taking over the work of haying, threshing, mowing, cultivating, and planting and, in doing so, spurring big increases in productivity...

The Great Depression of the 1930s drove prices still lower, and by 1932 farm prices had dropped, on average, to less than one-third of their 1920 levels. Many present-day farm policies have their roots in the desperate decade of the 1930s and the rescue effort contained in the New Deal...

In 1900, half of the labor force were farmers, but in 2003 the figure is less than 2 percent. Today, less than 140,000 American farmers product most of American food and fiber.

Note: The Japanese translation version has a mistake at "In 1900, half...," since the Japanese version wrongly reads "In 1990, half..." (though you should not blame a translator).

American Embassy in Japan must correct it.

This great capacity of American agriculture has influenced American psychology so much.

America is rich due to its agricultural capacity first of all.
America is rich due to its industrial capacity, too.
America is rich due to its military capacity, too.
America is rich due to its financial capacity, too.

But, first of all, America is rich due to its agricultural capacity.

Indeed, the best American Dream for poor people in the world must be to go to America and become a farmer owning his own farm land of 190 hectares.

Finally, when Americans start to respect Agriculture more than finance, military, and industry, their economy would be blessed by Christ, in my humble view.

Thank you, Christ bless you!


The origin might be an electron of a CO2 molecule now passing by your view angle.

I have a dream, of course, that one day American farmers and Afghanistan farmers cultivate the land together so friendly.

Indeed, New York is well fit for White Christmas.

It can be even the capital of the United Races of America, yes, in my dream...



Mat 12:9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

Mat 12:10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

Mat 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

"it is marvellous in our eyes?"


This year many notable persons left this world even in Japan alone.

This year many poor persons left this world even in Japan alone.

In the whole world rich men die leaving so much money behind, since it is useless in the hell.

Anywhere in the world, poor people die heading for Heaven where their abundant treasure is awaiting them for so long...

This is a Christmas story of 2009, since we can hear a horrible sound of drums at any moment...


As an executive summary, what I want to emphasize is that the Soviet Union could have been the sole super power of today if all the people of the U.S.S.R had been very pious Christians, Judaists, and Muslims.

This section is partially a result of my examination on the following two Japanese Web sites:

The second one discussed the need for promotion of a study by Japanese researchers on the economy of the Soviet Union.

The first one revealed the philosophy on money the Soviet Communist Party had developed for their need to control households and entities other than households.

In the Soviet Union, if you had a million dollars you need permission from the Government or the Party to use it; if you had one dollar you need permission from the Government or the Party to use it, in principle or in spirit.

But, as the Soviet Union could not be a friend of Japan, it could not compete with the U.S. in terms of technology and industrial innovation; eventually they lost the Cold War and vanished away from history...

(In this context, the Chinese Communist Party has put the highest priority in their political operations on acquiring influential friends in Japan as many and much as possible since late 1970's, which is really paid off nowadays.)


As an executive summary, what I want to emphasize is that gravity has 90 degree phase, electromagnetism (Elec.) has 180 degree phase, the strong interaction (Strong) between elementary particles has 270 degree phase, and the weak interaction (Weak) has around 360 degree phase.

Accordingly they do not interfere with one another in the same 3D + Time space.

They said it snowed heavily in North America yesterday.

Relatively cool summer and relatively mild winter seem to be, however, a norm nowadays in Japan.



Mar 12:10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:

Mar 12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mar 12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.

"What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do?"


Some people are worried about frictions being generated between Japan and the U.S. The issue is mostly concerned with the U.S. Marine redeployment scheme from Okinawa, Japan, to Guam, America.

America does not move all the Marine troops, about 10,000, to Guam at one stretch but plans to keep its air station and helicopter squads in Okinawa.

Prime Minister Mr. Yukio Hatoyama is listening to anti-American voices of Okinawa residents, since U.S. military bases account for almost 20% of the island.

Yet, some influential American experts have visited Tokyo recently to check the situation.

Mr. Michael Green made a TV appearance yesterday on a popular news show of a Japanese TV channel. He claimed that the Japan-U.S. tie was not merely for joint security but for more vast alliance in diplomacy and economy, including the anti-global warming policy.

Today there are three million jobless persons in Japan alone. If Japan becomes an enemy of America, 10 million more workers will lose jobs not only in Japan but also in America.

You still have to study the Great Depression and the Japan-China war leading to the Pearl Harbor attack, since nobody in the world wants war between Japan and the U.S. as well as Japan and China any more.

SECTION I: Josephus (AD 37 – c. 100)

It is very strange that great author Josephus who eventually lived under protection of the Roman Emperor in Rome did avoid mentioning in his great books Jesus Christ and His influences having been left in Galilee, Jerusalem, and other regions of ancient Israel:

Josephus, who introduced himself in Greek as "Iosepos (Ιώσηπος), son of Matthias, an ethnic Jew, a priest from Jerusalem",[7] fought the Romans in the First Jewish-Roman War of 66–73 as a Jewish military leader in Galilee. After the Jewish garrison of Yodfat was taken under siege, the Romans invaded, killing thousands; the survivors committed suicide.

It is just after one generation from the emergence and the death of Jesus Christ that Josephus took part in the war against the Romans.

Indeed, it has been a well-discussed great enigma of 2000 years that one of the greatest authors of mankind never mentioned Jesus Christ who appeared just a generation ago.

Today's notable authors on history would surely mention the Pearl Harbor, JFK, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War or the fall of the Berlin Walls. But Josephus far greater than any authors of today never mentioned Jesus Christ and His influence having been left in Galilee while he was a Jewish military leader in Galilee in the war against the Roman troops.

Or should we ask what exactly happened after the death of Jesus Christ around A.D. 34 till the First Jewish-Roman War of 66–73?

One clue might be found from a Josephus' testimony of the war that erupted one generation after the death of Jesus Christ:
He disputes the claim[citation needed] that the Jews served a defeated God, and were naturally hostile to Roman civilization. Rather, he blames the Jewish War on what he calls "unrepresentative and over-zealous fanatics" among the Jews, who led the masses away from their traditional aristocratic leaders (like himself), with disastrous results. Josephus also blames some of the Roman governors of Judea, but these he represents as atypical: corrupt and incompetent administrators.

Thus, according to Josephus, the traditional Jew was, should be, and can be, a loyal and peace-loving citizen. Jews can, and historically have, accepted Rome's hegemony precisely because their faith declares that God himself gives empires their power.


What appeared after the death of Jesus Christ were "unrepresentative and over-zealous fanatics" who multiplied until the defeat by the Romans.

If there had not been the hand of the God behind the scene, what else was there driving Israelites to the fate in war, while they knew well of the fates of Egypt and other nations?

Specifically, something at the core of their religion must have requested them to fight against the materialistic Romans and their hegemony.

And, God could give them power to establish an empire as great as the Roman Empire; they must have probably thought so. In other word, they might test God.

But, how can we blame those insurgent Israelites, since they might have been entitled to claim that their God should let them defeat the Roman Empire, since the Son of the God was born among them some 60 years ago, with a name of Jesus?

Anyway, to our astonishment, Josephus, a priest from Jerusalem and a Jewish military leader in Galilee, did not know anything about Jesus Christ. The knowledgeable man living just one generation after Jesus Christ did not know anything about Jesus Christ though Jerusalem and Galilee were so much associated with Jesus Christ.

Or did Josephus avoid mentioning Jesus Christ to save his life?

Indeed, it is the only reasonable conclusion, since he faild to be the fifth Gospel author.

Mar 12:5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.

Mar 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

Mar 12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.

Mar 12:8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.

Mar 12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

"against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven"

(Second Wave to Tokyo after Ablution?)


"Tora, tora, tora" is still a test word to check with if an Asian is a Japanese or not.

Alter 12-day rough but silent voyage from a bay of the Kuril(e) Islands of the Empire of Japan over a northern sea in winter, five aircraft carriers and other battle ships of the Imperial Navy turned the course and sailed down south to Hawaii and destroyed American naval presence in the Pacific Ocean in early December of 1941.

A leading fighter plane pilot who was convinced of success in the breakaway attack before pulling a trigger sent a radio signal to the fleet headquarters in Japan, thousands kilometers far, using a code "To" for "Totsugeki (charge)" with a convenient suffix "Ra," though "Tora" means a tiger in Japanese.

(Then, American military radio listeners stationed around the Pacific Ocean to capture the Japanese radio transmissions must have suddenly realized a Japanese fleet was so close to naval bases in Hawaii; specifically that is 300 km north of Pearl Harbor, Oahu. )

This is undoubtedly the most drastic and decisive moment of wars in these 2000 years or since the first full-scale attack of Roman troops to Israelites around Jerusalem in the first century that led to the 2000-year diaspora of Judaists till after WWII...

Sad or crazy or otherwise harassed by a conspiracy, this is the history of mankind since the emergence of the Son of God around A.D. 1 or 1 B.C. nominally as symbolized by calendars now being used all over the world.

If an Asian humbly but somewhere proudly, if so unnoticed, explains the historical context of the expression "Tora, Tora, Tora," he must be a Japanese, no matter if he looks Chinese or Korean on Wall Street or Washington D.C.

(Accordingly you have to study both the fall of Jerusalem and the Pearl Harbor attack more sincerely.)


It is enterprises, businesses, and corporations that really need huge money, partly because they employ most of people in a nation.

But, people in a nation as a mass need huge money, too, if most of them work in any companies.

Infusion of money from the central bank must be thus directed directly to both the spheres.

In a great recession, the central bank must provide huge money for both businesses and consumers to maintain a reasonable balance between industrial activities and citizens' consumption.

For this purpose, every enterprise and citizen must be given an account in the central bank, respectively.

And, if the central bank can do this in a reasonable manner, you do not need banks and other financial institutions between the central bank and businesses and the people.

The Government must order the central bank to infuse reasonable money to each account for a business and an individual.

The Government must also take any measures to keep the value of its national currency in the international financial market.

However, the central bank can maintain two different types of accounts, one for this direct financial service to people and businesses in the case of emergency, and another for conventional monetary operation the central bank is expected to perform on its discretion.

As banks and other financial institutions have a potential to harm the national economy more than it helps businesses and the people by solving a great recession, they must be converted to mere branch offices and shops of the central bank and the ministry of finance.

The free market system is maintained; free industrial activities are assured; free pursuit of wealth can be overlooked, if any; and democracy always prevails in this society without private banking systems.

Indeed, a bank is the worst institution mankind has ever invented.

Truly, glory of ancient civilizations was all brought about without a type of banking system we see today.

No banks in ancient Rome, Athens, Jerusalem, Egypt, and Mesopotamia.

"I say unto you, Fear him"

(Shrine and Winter Sun Set, Japan)


It hit my antenna that a death toll among swine flu patients has risen to 100 in Japan.

(Of course I might have been one. But It is amazing that Mr. Barack Obama and other African Americans never mind living in Chicago, a very cold city in winter. Have Inuit people changed their DNA to adapt to the ice world? Are polar bears immune to influenza? But, malaria looks personally more terrible than influenza, though Japan is not an epidemic area of malaria.)

You might be now on your way to Copenhagen for the climate change summit, but it is a new type of epidemics, in the worse case, emerging in Northern area getting warmer that you have to pay your attentions to. So, you had better bring medical researchers to Denmark who specialize in mutant bacteria and viruses.

Nonetheless, I have a feeling that cooling potential of the earth on itself is far stronger than global warming energy involving CO2.

At any time, I am afraid, global cooling can begin so mysteriously for mankind, if he looks at the sun displaying less sunspots nowadays...


In China, almost without a grave interruption of power and civilization, dynasties were succeeded one after another, one after others, or others after one.

But, things went wired in Southern and Western Europe when Western Roman Empire fell to the ground totally.

No cities in Southern and Western Europe succeeded Rome as the center of power and civilization.

Instead, centuries of desolate situations covered the ex-territory of the Empire and continued for so long without rich documentation and records on the era.

This is the core of the mystery of the fall of the Roman Empire.

It is not all about why and how Western Roman Empire fell.

It is all about why and how no cities in Europe succeeded Rome swiftly
, without taking centuries.

It is all about why and how no cities in Europe succeeded Rome so that a void and interruption of power and civilization could be avoided.

History did not see Geneva Empire, Madrid Empire, Paris Empire, or London Empire soon after Imperial Roman troops vanished.

It is indeed as if Europeans had been cursed for centuries until the solid establishment of the Vatican in Rome. The Fall of Rome indeed must be an act of God, namely, an act of Jesus.

Students and professors in history, jurisprudence, economics, business, engineering, and science must focus on why and how no cities succeeded Rome immediately but not on why and how the Empire fell.

(As for East Asia, if China of any past dynasty had fallen and been put into the same status as Western Roman Empire, it must have been very likely that Japan would emerge reasonably soon as the center of power and civilization in any centuries after the 8th...)

There is someone sometimes that plays a role of a touchstone.

If you see an attitude the third person takes against that someone, you may find some truth about him or her.

It is apparent that some women around Jesus Christ served as such in the story of the Gospel.

Yet, in this context, Cleopatra must have served as a test of the nature or disposition of the Romans.

Princess Diana might have in the 20th century, though I might have to still find some for the 21st century.

(Do you think Ms. Palin served as such in 2008 before the fall of Wall Street?)
