The Brexit seems to allow us to diagnose the same sickness of Japan
I made public in a book 15 years ago to the whole world.
It is the absence of three senses,namely those of ethics, responsibility and justice.
The Brexit has unexpectedly shown that the elite and the estalishment of the world are suffering from the same sickness.
The main stream of the world managed by this leadership,allowing the existence of 440 nuclear reactors,has increasingly been
required to change course.The Brexit has sawn a seed for this change.
The attached official criticism by China concerning the irresponsible coping by Japan with the consequenses of the Fukushima
nuclear accident decisively sums up the voice of the international community. The fate of the Tokyo OLympic Games 2020,
with the approaching conclusion of the French investigation of the relevent bribery issue,will soon be known.
In this connection, it is quite noteworthy that Managing Director of International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, has suggested Greece to permanently host the Olympic Games,arguing that this will boost the country’s economy.
The future of the Olympic Games seems to be at stake.
Please allow me to count on your understanding and support.
With warmest regards,
Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
