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

There is plenty of evidence that Dokdo is our land, but there is no reason for us to respond to a judicial verdict that applies international law, in which lurks the logic of the power of the age of imperialism.

    I think he means "the power of logic".

    A: Thanks for the note. That's not how it was in Japanese. It was XXX の力の論理. I didn't like "logic" there but I couldn't think of what else to use, and the guy is obviously on the left, and that's how they talk. He might have meant "force" or something conveying coercion instead of "power". I knew I should have saved the original this morning instead of disposing of it.
