Exclusive Report: Prime Minister Noda’s True Colors (2)

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.

A profession in a former life impacts the current life

Ayaori: Because I have a fair idea from your profession, are you from around the Edo period? You don’t really know much about modern economics, do you?

Sakai: You’ve got a very Japanese way about you, so you’re Japanese, aren’t you? First, were you around in the Edo period?

Noda’s guardian spirit: Um, Edo… Um, I think so.

Sakai: What time was that roughly? Around the time of a famine?

Noda’s guardian spirit: Um, I have a feeling that Mount Fuji was erupting. I am often born when there are those kinds of disasters. Yes, there was a famine. I saw Mount Fuji spouting fire when was I walking along the *Tokaido Road.
