Continuing on from part 1, The Liberty will present an interview with Prime Minister Noda’s guardian spirit (part of his subconscious).
Before doing so however, it is necessary to explain a bit about Japanese history. Because rice has long been the staple food of Japan, it functioned as tax prior to the modern era. Farmers, who made up the majority of the population, paid their land tax with the rice they cultivated and harvested in their fields. It was standard for samurai wages to be paid in rice.
Prime Minister Noda’s guardian spirit was very reluctant to reveal its true identity, but his profession in a former life was related to the Japanese system of paying tax in rice. (The conversation below is an extract.)
The interviewers are Jiro Ayaori, editor in chief of The Liberty, and Taishu Sakai, an executive staff of Happy Science.
