The landlord today invited me to a commemoration of their son, who died nine years ago in the war between Israel and Lebanon. More than sixty people, their family, friends, military people and a tenant --- it's me, gathered in their home; it shall be certainly a sad commemoration, but seems to me a very happy party, in which way I feel they wanted to have the evening.
Wars adjacent to their lives, military around theirs. Not subjective, but this is a fact. I had never met and shaken hands with military people, but today I met a colonel. I had known no people killed in wars --- no, I actually heard that one of the brothers of my grandfather was.
That I was about to write that I had known no people killed in wars tells me that I have been very lucky. I don't know any wars, as well as the Beatles. Their son was killed because he was in the reserve, was recruited, and was under the missile.
I do not want to address any comment on his death, its ground, or circumstances, for I do not know anything and have not spent enough time on digestion and deliberation. However, I have to write it down here, an irresistible thought, that the luck of mine is based on the disability of Japan to have military power, even though superficially.
Based on the above discussion, the notion of "August revolution" is regarded to be fallacious as it is based on careless usage of the word "revolution". Politics should have another word to describe the situation, which will allow us to describe the current situation of Japanese politics.
