In 2014, just like today, the LDP could pretty much ignore any opposition and do whatever it wanted. Yet it just "gave up?"

You can learn about the opinions of each party at the time on this page.

All the opposition parties opposed the ban on the possession of child porno.

Did you know that lawyers were also opposed to penalizing the possession of child porno?

How could the opposition parties block anything? If such things are still legal it's because the government lacked the political will to ignore the opposition and take tough action.

When the possession of child porno was banned in Japan in 2014, there was a debate on whether to include comics in the ban.

The LDP aimed to include comics in the ban, but gave up due to opposition from the opposition parties.

The opposition parties also opposed making the possession of child porno illegal.

Taro Aso was proud to say that he took the lead in banning child porno.

Takaichi is also a leading politician advocating the banning of child porno comics.

Not all Koreans living in Japan have been forcibly brought to Japan.

For example, the grandfather of the founder of Softbank and the founder of Lotte were stowaways who came to Japan.

The LDP tried to ban child po*no comics, but these opposition parties blocked it.

Because of this, child po*no comics are still legal today.

Rengo is an organization that supports CDPJ, but since it is an organization that is at odds with JCP, it criticizes CDPJ, which has expressed cooperation with JCP.

Of course, the new chief, Yoshino, has also criticized this cooperation.

Skirt uniforms are very attractive to female students.

Middle and high school girls go out on the town or to Disney with their uniforms on.

Foreigners who don't have a uniform culture wouldn't know how much having a uniform helps parents and children.

Abolishing seifuku would be painful for both parents and students because they would have to choose what to wear to come to school every day.

It costs more than buying uniforms because you have to buy a large amount of clothes.

School bags are durable enough that you can use the same one for six years in elementary school, so the price comparison is not bad.

Neither the old uniforms nor the Uniqlo uniforms are well designed at all, so either way, this school will not be a school with attractive uniforms.

I think the first PM was 135 years ago. So he is the 100th PM, meaning a revolving door or it's like changing underwear.

Did you know that Abe was the 90th, 96th, 97th and 98th Prime Minister?

You don't seem to know how to count the prime ministers of Japan.

She supports the imperial family’s male-only succession, and opposes same-sex marriage and a revision to the 19th-century civil law that could allow women to keep their maiden name.

In the first place, only a minority of Japanese women want to change that.

Posted in: Kishida to become next PM after winning LDP leadership vote See in context

Kishida's desire to become a politician was caused by the racism he suffered as a child in the United States.

https://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXZQOUA248E50U1A920C2000000/

Fumio Kishida's aspiration to become a politician originated in New York, U.S.A., where he spent from the first to third grade of elementary school. Accompanying his father, a bureaucrat, on his assignment, he attended a local public elementary school.

When the class went on a field trip to the zoo, the teacher encouraged them to hold hands next to each other, but the white girl next to Mr. Kishida looked at him disapprovingly. She would not shake the hand I held out to her. It was the first time I experienced racism. When I understood the situation, I made up my mind. I want to end this absurdity.
