一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

People defend their own country by themselves. We also have to be aware of an education that creates splendid Japanese. This talk about being a global citizen…if you called yourself a global citizen in the United States, you’d be put in a hospital right away. There is no such thing as a global citizen. People make the world better by making their own country better.

– Yamada Hiroshi, former chief municipal officer of Tokyo’s Suginami Ward, the head of the Spirit of Japan Party, and an advisor to new Osaka Mayor Hashimoto Toru.
