– A person who has something to say about everything

“Noda, Maehara, and Haraguchi (of the Democratic Party) are all graduates of the Matsushita Institute of Government and Management, but they learned nothing of Matsushita Konosuke’s thought. They were merely enrolled there, or else just passed through the MIGM tunnel. They certainly didn’t study Mr. Matsushita’s political philosophy. Theirs is nothing more than the earnest wish to advance in the big corporation that is the Democratic Party of Japan Co., Ltd. If it were possible, I’d like to ask them what they think Mr. Matsushita’s political philosophy was, or what his view of humanity was. Their answer would probably be, “…”. They have not made the Matsushita philosophy or political philosophy a part of their lives. That’s why I, who was involved for 15 years with the establishment of MIGM, do not want them to publicly state that they are graduates of that institution.”

– Eguchi Katsuhiko

Mr. Eguchi was a close associate of Matsushita Konosuke, the founder of Panasonic. He was elected last year to the upper house of the Diet as a member of Your Party.

    I gather the Your Party is small but it looks like it is has some Names as members?
    Nothing is deadlier to a major party in my estimation, than a party member who gets fed up and crosses the aisle to the other side.
    They will often be more determined in their opposition than life long political party members.
    T: The Names are new, attracted by the potential of a party that’s so far insisted on keeping to its agenda. This guy is older and also has the title of senior advisor to the party. He’s been associated with them for a while, particularly Watanabe.
