Who to break the chain of oppression first - Americans, Uchinanchu or Yamatonchu


For me as leader, my time is nearly over. But for Scotland, the campaign continues, and the dream shall never die.

       - Alex Salmond, outgoing Scottish first minister, in his
         concession speech

In the first half of this year, I reread dozens of short and long poems from Man'yo-shu (The Anthology of a Myriad Leaves) along with books on Kojiki and Nihon Shoki, official history books compiled by court-retained historians in 712 and 720 AD, respectively. I also reread a book about Yamataikoku Naofumi Uchiyama authored after meticulously digging into tons of literature and material which told him dozens of conflicting stories about the origin of this country. The late Uchiyama was my brother-in-law, who was a multitalented Nissan executive.

Although nation's ancient history still remains more or less a riddle to me, now I have understood it can be roughly summarized like this:

In the Jomon Period (13th-15th century to 4th century BC,) this archipelago was inhabited by the Ainus and the Ryukyuans. And toward the end of the ensuing Yayoi Period (3rd century BC to 3rd century AD,) people from the three kingdoms (Goguryeo, Baekje and Silla) in the Korean Peninsula came, saw and conquered the indigenous tribes and dispersed most of them to the northernmost island of Hokkaido and the southern islands of the Ryukyus.

The first thing the conquerors did after they pacified the mainland is the compilation of Kojiki and Nihon Shoki. With these books they wanted to establish a false legitimacy of their rule by inventing the absurd myth that they had been there since 660 BC to reign over the nation. To that end, they sealed off the prehistoric truth, totally and for good.

It seems the compilation of both Kojiki and Nihon Shoki was ordered by 40th Emperor Tenmu (631-686 AD) although he died before these epics were completed. It's interesting to know that according to non-mainstream Man'yo scholar Yasuko Kobayashi, Tenmu was a disguised Korean general who defected from the Goguryeo Kingdom (later to be renamed Goryo,) one of the three kingdoms in the peninsula at the time.

On the other hand it still remains a mystery who ordered whom to compile Man'yo-shu, which is more of a lyric poetry at least on the surface, and what for he or she or they tackled the painstaking task of anthologizing 4,500-plus poems when the system called Man'yo Gana (phonogramic application of the Chinese ideograms) had yet to be established. But not a few Man'yo scholars believe it was also Tenmu who ordered the compilation although in the middle someone on the direct lineage of 38th Emperor Tenji (636-672 AD) took over the project.

Since I thought it was a total waste of time to delve into court infighting, all I know about Tenji is that he was Tenmu’s longtime nemesis because he was most probably a disguised Korean prince who defected from Baekje, another Kingdom of the Peninsula.

Yuji Seki, one of non-mainstream experts in Japan's ancient history, has repeatedly argued it's important to unmask these impostors because you can only prevent history from repeating itself by revealing the truth behind all this fabrication. Although the truth-seeking historian stops a little short of insisting Japan could have taken a different course than it actually did, he won't stop peddling around the plausible but unsubstantiated idea that the Japanese could learn an unequivocal lesson from its history.

Unlike with Seki, my only concern is who I am. Am I an East Korean, or a remnant of the Ainus or the Ryukyuans? As always my answer is: "I don't know exactly, and I don't really care either." All I know for sure is:

"I'm ME."

And yet I'm anxious to know why I'm so concerned about the fate of the Okinawans this late in life. I don't know the answer yet, but as a matter of fact, the Okinawa issue has always been one of the few things I can really internalize no matter what my ethnic origin might be.

In my previous post I introduced an impressive presentation Mr. Hiroaki Koide, Associate Professor at Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute, gave at Okinawa University.

If there was something to be desired in the otherwise excellent lecture, it's the fact that with his little worn-out antiwar, anti-American rhetoric, the nuclear scientist obscured his key message that each individual should be held responsible for his own suffering as well as others'.

For one thing Mr. Koide shouldn't have made a misplaced mention of the disproportionate burden on Okinawa by pointing out 74% of U.S. military bases in Japan are on the tiny islands that account for a mere 0.6% of the entire archipelago.

As you can see in the video embedded at the bottom of this post, former U.S. Defense Department official Morton Halperin recently visited Okinawa. (I got an impression that this female interpreter is a hearing-impaired and Japanese-illiterate person.) He was a key negotiator in the nominal reversion of Okinawa, but he left his post shortly before the agreement was signed because of a feud with Richard Nixon's national security adviser Henry Kissinger.

In one of the interviews with the Japanese newspapers, Halperin said:

"[When I first visited Okinawa in 1967] the American military did not believe there were bases on Okinawa. They believed Okinawa was a military base. Literally, they viewed the whole island as one military base." (Emphasis mine.)

That means the all-too-familiar story about 74% concentration of the U.S. military bases in Okinawa is essentially a nonissue frequently used as a red herring.

I don't think it's fair to expect a nuclear scientist to present his audience with well-informed, actionable ideas for the issue at hand. All I'm saying is that Koide should have dropped all this empty lip service if he had to stop short of elaborating on it. Even these geniuses like Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer could do little more than playing "Cat's Cradle" after they let the genie out of the bottle.

I hadn't known this name Masaki Tomochi until I found it in the September 15 article of The Guardian. According to the British daily, Tomochi, who heads this study group for Ryukyus' independence, was now "seeking inspiration from Scotland." So at first I thought he must be one who was ready for what David Cameron said would be "a painful divorce" rather than "a trial separation" when the British Prime Minister was scaremongering on the eve of the referendum. But I was mistaken.

I was stunned to know from his inaugural press conference held in Okinawa in May last year that its constitution stipulates only ethnic Ryukyuans are eligible to join the study group which is meant to serve as the foundation of a new independence party.

His statement simply indicated he doesn't know anything about the mind-boggling tasks to be entailed in his essentially extralegal cause of secession.

Certainly Omochi knows secession is basically unconstitutional in any nation-state, and even the "International Law" and the U.N. Charter give nothing more than a muddled promise about "self-determination" of "people." And yet what this guy seems to be launching is nothing but an exclusive cabal which is the farthest thing from the Scottish National Party from which he was supposed to seek inspiration.

Omochi is just eying a handsome amount of alimony and property division at a minimal pain of divorce. A political racketeer like him doesn't give a damn about the fact that the only thing the cause of secession requires is committed individuals.

The Ryukyu independence movement has already been suffering a serious setback in the last decade. I started intensively discussing the issue some four years ago. In those days there sill were a certain number of people who were active in advocating the idea of secession. Lim John Chuan-tiong, then Assistant Professor at the University of Ryukyus, was one of them. But it seems this dubious British-Chinese has fled to Taiwan recently.

Now things are getting even uglier toward the gubernatorial election scheduled for November 16 as another murky figure slated himself as a pro-independence candidate. His campaign pledge was to let the Chinese People's Liberation Army along with troops from the Republic of Korea take the place of U.S. Armed Forces after the southernmost prefecture secedes. The fact that he quickly removed his name from the list in a matter of weeks indicates he was a spoiler whose role was to discredit Okinawa's aspiration for liberation.

In his book titled Dismantling the Empire, the late Chalmers Johnson wrote America's presence in far east is not only financially unsustainable but also morally obscene.

No doubt about that. Morally speaking, Americans should be held responsible more than anyone else for all the sufferings inflicted on Uchinanchu, as the people in Ryukyu Islands call themselves, and Yamatonchu, as they call mainlanders. But things about the perpetual occupation of Okinawa aren't that simple.

The most sticking point there is the fact that the situation still remained fluid before the loot was returned to the Japanese government that had once fenced it to the chief of thieves. But until the nominal reversion of Okinawa in 1972, the islanders did little more than untiringly commemorating April 28 (see NOTE 1) as "the day of infamy" while in fact May 15 (see NOTE 2) was going to bring about an aggravated humiliation. Their virtual inaction during the period from 1952 to 1972 makes them deserve all the sufferings that ensued.

NOTE 1: On April 28, 1952, a nominal sovereignty was returned to Japan.

NOTE 2: On May 15, 1972, Okinawa was nominally returned to Japan without superseding Hirohito's "Okinawa message" and the bilateral security treaty of 1960.

Actually Okinawa is not a moral issue, but a humanity issue. And needless to say, humanity here has absolutely nothing to do with your cheap humanism.

As I've repeated one hundred times in this single-issue blog, the only difference between the ape and man lies in the fact that unlike the ape, man thinks. In other words, while the ape may perform better than man in coming up with the right solution to a given problem, it's only man who can identify the real issue which he can really internalize. It's this ability of internalization that can find him the right cause to become committed without reservation.

In this context there is an intractable problem always facing us.

A heavily intoxicated man insists he is as sober as a judge. And a psychopath, almost by definition, doesn't doubt his sanity for a split second. Likewise, one who suffers the mental illness that I call premature senility never admits he is just shuffling information purely on an ear-to-mouth basis.

In the vast intellectual vacuum prevailing on both sides of the Pacific, it's these people who have adamantly refused to lend an ear to my argument on the basics about humanity.

They say they only believe in truth about reality. As a matter of principle I have no problem with that. Unfortunately, though, they tend to ignore the simple fact that if their truth is something that's already there awaiting revelation, it's not only useless but also harmful to uncover it because after all you can't undo anything once it came into existence.

That is basically why they are so prone to delusion that distorts your perception so severely that you believe history could have unfolded in a different way than it actually did.

Once duped by the guru of a truth-seeking cult, you'll soon develop abnormal fixation to the past and permanent inability to look to the future. What's wrong with the argument by a Holocaust-denier, for instance, is not that he denies the systematic slaughter of Jews, but that he denies what's done is done.

It's this delusion that made people brush it aside as a pipe-dream when I made a suggestion about a brand new sociopolitical model. I wrote, though in a little too sketchy way, there's no reason we can't do what the empty-headed kid named Mark Zuckerberg could do in a matter of a few years. Unfortunately, it seems quite unlikely that someday they will understand that it wasn't a pipe-dream, but a surreal dream, in the sense the Frenchman who first coined the word surréel (beyond reality) must have meant.

In recent years, we are seeing the first signs that the America-centric "international community" has started tottering. Particularly in the eastern part of Ukraine, Catalonia of Spain, and even some counties in American states, cracks are showing in the middle of the edifice and still widening, though very quietly and at a glacial pace. But the self-complacent and learning-disabled Americans don't seem to realize the post-WWII undercurrent has already changed.

As for the Islamic State in the Iraqi territory, all the Americans can say is that we shouldn't call it a nation because it's nothing more than a group of terrorists. They still believe they have the right to tell these guys how to build a new nation. They shouldn't forget their ancestors killed 24,000 Britons when pursuing their independence.

Someone from among my American audience said he defines the word "terrorist" like this: "A terrorist is one who terrifies." In response to the absurd truism, I asked him: "If you call them terrorists just because they beheaded an American journalist, what do you call Harry S. Truman and hundreds of millions of people behind him?" Thus far I haven't heard a word from this person.

Truman is the guy who incinerated more than 150 thousand citizens of the two strategically unimportant local cities, and many more, when it must have been a piece of cake for the United States to instantly decapitate the nation by destroying Hirohito who'd holed up in the palace in central Tokyo just like a sitting duck. Equally important, in 1947 he subtly blackmailed Hirohito into giving up Okinawa to the United States in exchange for his acquittal from execution at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal.

In the last ten years I've been calling on America's chattering classes to urge their president to immediately invoke the termination clause of the security treaty - and nothing else. Putting aside the heartache of the Okinawans, that is the only way to stop their own society from further sliding down the evolution tree. But all I've heard to this date from these brainless and spineless egomaniacs are transparent excuses such as,
"I was still a fetus when Truman ordered the genocide,"
"I didn't vote for Bush,"
"I don't support Obama,"
"I hope I'll be dead by the time Hilary Clinton is elected U.S. President,"
and so on and so forth.

What a NINCOM-P-O-O-P-ISH people.

Now I must conclude that to the Americans, the Yamatonchu, and even not a few Uchinanchu as well,


This leaves me alongside a small number of Okinawans still dreaming of something beyond the reality of modern nationhood. What we envision here may not look very real as yet. But we are just saying what looks to be there, e.g. the runt in the Imperial Palace, is actually nonexistent, while you guys insist what actually isn't there, e.g. the Black Kenyan Monkey fighting against terrorists, is existent. It's obvious which is a mere delusion that gets us nowhere.

You said, "... the only thing the cause of secession requires is committed individuals." I believe that is correct.

You also quoted a book that describes American presence as, "morally obscene."

So which really is your own position? Is it that winners have no need to justify themselves or is it that there is some international/intercultural definition of what is morally correct in the actions of large groups of people? And does morality matter in the decisions of nations?

Are the decisions of War Crimes courts to be considered as anything more than the momentary morality of an angered few? Or are these decisions dictated by a Supreme Being that is not heard by any but the most important of humanity?

I ask these questions in all seriousness. As a child I heard of the War Crimes decisions on both Japan and Germany. I wondered what right the Allies had to impose morality on those officers when we knew that our own people had made similar excursions from justice. Could someone have marched up and said, "OK. I'll forgive one of your crimes for each one you forgive of ours. Then we'll balance the numbers and the remaining criminals will be hanged"?

You speak of, "a humanity issue." I think I know what you are driving at here but am concerned to get it right. Since Eleanor Roosevelt there has been much ado about "human rights' and there are many attempts to use these rights to supplant Equal Rights.

Equal Rights is a fundamental component of our law and therefore there is much anger on the part of human rights advocates to make Equal Rights unequal.

The arguments are dizzying and instead of helping develop agreement, they form a stern wall against understanding.

You sometimes descend into very small definitions to find your truths. When you asked if Harry Truman were really a terrorist because of his connection to the atom bombings, the answer seems painfully obvious; Genuine war is orchestrated terror. That terror involves our fear of losing food, home, freedom and life. Terror nominally demands choices between doing what is considered right and what subjects must do to survive. Every soldier with a rifle is a terrorist when the time is right. No warrior wins because his/her cause is just but only because that warrior succeeded at terrorizing another. Harry Truman was a terrorist at that time. Ditto the leaders of Japan.

Harry won. Harry got his way.

Modern Muslim terrorists are especially interesting inasmuch as they provide minimal, if any, alternative to the deaths for their targets. International conflict is entering a new phase and the things we learned about WWII are insufficient.

Your discussions of rights, justice and law are helpful. I think that everybody understands each of these but nobody knows where they will go.

Morton H. Halperin is a poor speaker but probably means well. He took far too long to get to the core of his statement.

He claimed that, "there are many parts of the world that Americans know nothing about." Then he said, "And Americans do not have emotional attachments to most places in the world." This is the kind of statement deliberately designed to divide and cause anger. Americans come from every part of the world. Ours is the most highly developed journalism in the world. We know our origins and practice the uniqueness of each individual. It may merely be that Mr. Halperin is merely a second or third generation world traveler who knows little of his homeland.

Although our journalism and media are badly troubled it is American journalism and media that bring you news reports and movies about every part of the world. I am willing to bet that Japan reads a version of the magazine, "National Geographic" to see revealing photographs of nature and environmental problems. "Newsweek Magazine" here has long been directly tied to "Hispano-Americano" Magazine to aggressively cover the Western Hemisphere.

Don't be diverted by the happy fact that British journalism is now superior to American journalism and German journalism is on a course to beat all. Russian journalism competes internationally, too.

That much is true but it is the size of American journalism and the size of the American movie industry that overwhelms right now.

In all of this no media is as honest as it should be. Each clings to the American model created in the 1940s.

"Tokyo Free Press" is a remarkable standout among Asian media. It makes an almost solitary effort to show us how the Japanese and Okinawan people feel. You alone do for us what Associated Press and Reuters and all those Hollywood directors do for you.

It is your reminders that we do not understand the Japanese language well enough that push Japanese media to try reaching us. We are open; We have Toyota, Yamaha and Nissan but we do not have Japanese journalists or movie makers.

It's a shame my English-writing skills still remain so poor that I once again seem to have failed to get my message through. Actually I just wanted to convince my audience that no one should regard Okinawa as someone else's problem because you can't liberate yourself until the Okinawans liberate themselves.

Even worse, I also seem to have failed to hear a single counterargument against my thought.

As to your questions, I don’t think I understand them very precisely, presumably because my English comprehension is also extremely poor. But if one of them is about the difference between morality and humanity, the following will be my answer.

I think it’s always humanity that really matters. On the other hand everything that’s been said of morality is nothing but a joke. It seems to me moral means a code of conduct, If my understanding is correct here, any animal has its own moral.

Just like in animal's world, the winner, be it U.S. president or the 7th century’s Korean defector to Japan, can always claim the moral authority over the loser. But this is not to say the loser is more likely to be morally right. As I wrote, therefore, humanity has absolutely nothing to do with your favorite human-rights or political correctness.

That is why I always think we should carefully avoid mixing up morality and humanity.

As to the definition of terrorist, you wrote: "Truman was a terrorist at that time." I don't understand why you added the tricky phrase "at that time." But to begin with, it's obviously wrong to call Truman in the same way you call Islamic "terrorists" who are beheading their Western hostages. The U.S. President is the guy who deliberately incinerated more than 150,000 people living in strategically unimportant cities when it must have been a piece of cake to instantly decapitate the nation by destroying Emperor Hirohito who'd holed up at that time in the palace in central Tokyo just like a sitting duck.

Remember I've never called Truman a terrorist. The behavior of Muslim fundamentalists who habitually behead their enemies is understandable, if not really agreeable. But the behavior of Truman and his people is way beyond comprehension.

Let me add something here. You wrote: "You sometimes descend into very small definitions to find your truths." This leaves me wondering where you got the idea that I'm seeking truth like Benjamin Fulford. More importantly, neither do I think I meet your description of my fussiness about words. This humble blogger is of the opinion that it's a total waste of time to exchange ill-defined words when it comes to a core issue. I don't think this makes me a nitpicker.

Your English-speaking skills are as good as anybody's. We have fifth-generation Americans who don't speak the language so well.

No one person here fully understands any other. That's magnificent because, if we could all understand each other perfectly, life would be boring beyond mere words. I suspect that life is precisely the same among the Japanese. It is that Brownian Motion of understanding that gives us new ideas.

I have a friend, a brilliant man with multiple doctorate degrees. He is a Democrat and an atheist. He says that the difference between "right" and "wrong" is entirely without meaning. He says that he believes in no morality at all yet he is constantly concerned about adherence to the rules of law. He feels that there nothing wrong with murder yet he lauds the value of extremist organizations that lie, cheat and steal to "protect" puppies and kittens from death.

Certainly President Truman was a terrorist for the time of the war. The Muslims have been terrorists for somewhere around 15-centuries. Each is understandable to those who study carefully and each kind of terror could be prevented with capitulation. If I were to find someone breaking into my home, I would do my best to make that person run in terror and to make him/her capitulate for return of stolen goods and of my stolen dignity.

So please don't feel bad about any of our failures to understand. There is a motto on the wall of a tavern in the US state of Idaho, "Life is a bitch and then you die." Quick, succinct, rude, crude and reasonable, that motto makes as much sense as anything.

Exchanging ill-defined words is all that we will ever be able to do. Obviously, we'd like to define words precisely but the legal industry has been failing at that for 30-centuries and more.

You and I do better than most.

I, too, do think a difference is a nutrition for a creative conversation. But it's an outright sophistry to say, "No one person here fully understands any other. That's magnificent because, if we could all understand each other perfectly, life would be boring beyond mere words."

In the same breath, you say: "Certainly President Truman was a terrorist for the time of the war. The Muslims have been terrorists for somewhere around 15-centuries. Each is understandable to those who study carefully and each kind of terror could be prevented with capitulation."

I'm at a loss over whether or not things can be understood if we study them carefully.

This is further to my previous comment.

It's not only astounding but even entertaining to know an estimated 99.999% of 319 million contemporary Americans can do nothing more than parroting words they hear from others without redefining them themselves as if in the state of echolalia.

Lucky for the Scots that the vote was rigged, blatantly rigged.

One of Alex Salmond's goals when elected, after independence, was to escalate the immigration rate from 10,000 per year to 24,000 per year, the argument being that more immigrants would be needed to fund the social programs. Where these new immigrants would gain employment is not mentioned.

In Germany in 1933, the German Social Democrats put the population back to work in a matter of a few years without needing an invasion of foreigners, but this miracle caused the Jewish bankers to foam at the mouth, and Germany had to be destroyed. This twenty-seven part documentary tells the real history of WWII in Europe, but all we get is victor's history. No one gets independence in today's world, and look at what happens to those that try to break the bonds of slavery.

So the tiny new country of independent Scotland would, like England, lose its national identity by swarms of Third World invaders that ghettoize themselves, refuse to enter a melting pot and become British or Scotish, and form an internal third column, which we see happening today.

This policy is open treason, but no one seems to notice that which is right in front of their faces, or they don't get an audience with the media and government puppets that endorse and implement this policy. No country today has representative government—not one.

As far as referendums go, no one seems to have heard of the one in Venice, Italy, where 89% of the citizens of Venice voted for independence.

Naturally, voting for independence and actually securing it are two different things, but the sentiment is now out in the open, and more than likely, there's no turning back.

Then we have the Catalonia vote coming up on November 9th.

This is the region that George Orwell wrote about in his book, “Homage to Catalonia.” Catalonia was home to the first successful anarchist system of self government during the civil war in the Spanish Republic in the 1930's. They were hated by the communists, as well as the Falange led by Franco. So there is a history of rebellion against what they see as outsiders (the Spanish government) meddling in their affairs. If this vote goes as expected to a “Yes” on independence, Spain may face a new threat of Basque independence, which as of late has faded into the background.

Then there is the fake history we all have to attempt to unravel. Jim Vieira, a stone mason, discovered in New England stone chambers that are identical to ones revered in Ireland as national treasures from their people's ancient past. The ones in New England are scoffed at by archaeologists as nothing more than root cellars or some other modern structure.

Then he mentions the most carefully covered up fact that in the continental U.S., there were skeletons of giants found at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, some as large as nine feet high with double rows of teeth. Where did these skeletons go? Why to the Smithsonian Institute, where they now deny that they have possession of these creatures.

Then there is the mystery of the Kennewick Man, a skeleton of a white Caucasian man found in 1996 along the bank of the Columbia river in Washington state.

Carbon dating shows the age to be around 9,300 years old. This would predate the theory of the native Indian migration across the Bering Strait. Naturally, this discovery frightened the local native population, because this implies that they may have slaughtered a preexisting white race, and the white people may have been the original inhabitants.

Then this new report shows that tuberculosis was carried to the Americas by infected seals, which were a part of the local native diet, infecting the unsuspecting diners. This infectious plague predates the European invasion, so, again, current indigenous peoples and the politically correct crowd would not want this information to gain a greater audience.

The Okinawans are facing a giant sitting in their living rooms. Just because they get some referendum passed, seceding from Japan, getting this Colossus to move his hind end will be the real challenge. The Philippines was able to get Uncle Sam to leave by not renewing the lease on their military base, but ending this occupation by a foreign power proved costly. I met many Philippines that were working abroad and sending money back to support the government, which was heavily in debt. The financial dependence occupation encourages is a very real threat.

Lim John Chuan-tiong may have traveled to Hong Kong with his message of liberation. However, China will not tolerate such ideas, of course.

But let's remember the facts about the so-called massacre at Tiananmen Square. It was a massacre that never happened.

This is no different than most of the fake terror incidents orchestrated inside the U.S., the U.K., and other Western countries. If the media agree on the storyline, then the mass of people will swallow it whole, just as they are swallowing the Ebola scare, the EV-D68 entero virus, ISIS/ISIL created terror group, funded and armed by Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, and one other Gulf State country that slips me. A phone call to each of these ghouls would stop this force in an instant, but the phone calls that likely went out were to create this monster force, rather than stop it. This is an Israeli plan to keep its neighbors in a steady state of chaos, thus, these Arabic states are rendered powerless against the Zionists. This is really the hidden hand behind this Middle East nightmare, as well as the treasonous immigration policies in all Western countries, including the U.S., which will have the same, societal, chaotic effect as well as killing off the white Europeans via this trail of tears these unwanted immigrants will bring. The birth rate of these Muslims and Africans is something like five times that of the native European populations, so they will and are overwhelming us with masses of children that grow up to be adults that hate the Western country that they are guests within. Are we fated to end up like the the Alacalufs (who called themselves Kaweskar, "the People"), who eked out a living off Tierra del Fuego at the southernmost tip of South America?

I'm too old to know how this horror will all turn out, but at this point, it doesn't look good for the future of humanity.

So, while the Iraqis and Syrians have to deal with a new enemy that the U.S. will use as an excuse to invade Syria, the American public will be subject to our own internal enemy: the CDC and WHO. John Rapport proposes two possible scenarios, both of which will result in the same outcome: fear, fear, fear, and more fear, and more loss of basic human rights, the one Thomas Paine declared so long ago as a fundamental right of all human beings.

There's a reason the world is in the mess it's in, but you won't find it in the universities, mainstream media, or from the gossip across the fence from your neighbors. The truth can be known, if one is willing to work at finding it.

Thank you so much for enlightening ignoramuses like us with so many informative links. I don’t mean any sarcasm here. I really mean it; in my humble opinion, there's no such thing as a piece of information that isn't worth learning.

Let me respectfully ask you two silly questions. In the interest of time, I’ll single out the Scottish referendum, but I think your answers would more or less apply to other topics.

Q1: Exactly how do you know the vote was rigged?

I’m a cranky person who never swallows anything I’m supposed to swallow without double-checking and crosschecking it with other sources, which is what I normally avoid doing unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Forensic investigation is not my favorite pastime, and more importantly, I can't afford to waste the time and energy for THINKING which are quickly running out now.

Now that I took a look at the article and the video on the website of Council of Conservative Citizens, it seems my silly question is subdivided into 2 sillier questions.

Q1-1: How can you be so sure the video isn’t a fake? For one thing, are you sure it was shot at a polling station, or polling stations, in Scotland on September 18, 2014?

Q1-2: If it wasn't a fake, how do you know it wasn’t an isolated case, or cases? In this world there’s no such thing as a popular vote without cheating.

According to news reports on the final results, NO votes outnumbered YES votes by 383,937. But the article and the video don’t tell us how many NO votes were added and how many YES votes were left uncounted.

I'm under the impression that the guy, who uploaded this and called it "evidence" that ballot stuffing has affected the fate of Scotland, must be a mentally-retarded person.

Q2: Specifically how would you have reacted to the results of the referendum if you were a Scot, a Welsh or an Englishman?

Presumably there are three groups of Americans: anti-secession, pro-secession and neither. And what would the first group have said if YES vote had outnumbered the other? Certainly these guys must have also complained that there was a fraud, and produced tons of evidence.

But I think the 3 groups of Americans have one thing in common: they all think it's their duty to police the world. Now it's almost their second nature to keep vigilant eyes on what other peoples are up to and tell them what to do and what not to do.

This is quite understandable because ALL American citizens living under a roof do benefit everyday from the American system financially, or in terms of privilege to dictate other peoples, or in any other way. In other words, their well-being, which is not always well-deserved, hinges solely on the status quo of Pax Americana.

Other peoples, be it the Scottish or the Yellow Yankees in America's far-eastern fiefdom, never act like busybodies. In the rest of the world, ordinary people think, “Whatever happens in a foreign country, it’s none of our business.”

Likewise, I always think: “I couldn’t care less whether a people secede from their former home country.” Unfortunately rather than fortunately, America is a different story for the reason I’ve explained to my audience since 2004.

In my Okinawa piece, I touched on Ukraine, Islamic State, Catalonia, etc. simply because I wanted to say now the American system is getting shaky everywhere in the world.

These are why I'm curious to know how an exceptionally intelligent person like you would have reacted to the poll results if you were a Briton, and why.

First off, it would be foolish to assume that the British government would allow a fair referendum to occur. They have too much to lose, i.e. the oil fields off the coast of Scotland.

Secondly, this link has additional evidence from multiple sources.

"A counting officer from Kilmarnock in East Ayrshire... recounted what she had witnessed.

"She was not allowed to ensure the closure of the ballots boxes over which she had responsibility.

"They were moved and left unattended, eventually being transported in a van without security to the central counting station and she was not permitted to be present at their arrival to verify that these were indeed her boxes.

"Other election officers had contacted her to inform her of open bribery of caretakers and other security personnel at polling stations."

The list of confirmed voting irregularities goes on.

Thanks for the clarification.

Actually I'm under the impression that the nuclear weapons deployed there is one of the things that made Cameron think it would be a painful divorce. I don't know exactly how the nuclear energy issue weighed on his mind.

But once again, Scotland is not a colony like Okinawa. I'm not really concerned about what's going on there.

Many thanks for finding us a new evidence for the referendum fraud, which is very interesting.

But once again, my primary concern here is Okinawa. I can't really relate myself to the fate of the Scottish.

Here's another thing. If I may quote myself, I wrote in March:

"A fact is truthful only when you know the question while a truth is factual only when you know the answer."

Here's another quote from my most recent post:

"We are all granted the inviolable right to BELIEVE in whatever we want to believe. The only thing that is prohibited to us is to THINK."

My point is that the most important thing is whether we know the question, the only thing that makes a fact truthful.
