The current government officially admitted that the Democratic Party was too optimistic about how to realize the promises mentioned in the manifesto. The party promised to realize lots of hard-to-realize dreams as if money falls from the sky, but scarcely any of them were realized. The Japanese bureaucracy remains unharmed despite the party’s declaration to crush it. There is no charge-free super expressway despite the party’s declaration to make the expressway toll free. The situation around Japan is growing serious and grave despite the party’s promotion of the spirit of fraternity, and the Okinawa issue still remains unsolved. The ear-pleasing phrases like “from concrete to people” have to change to more realistic ones. As always, windy eloquence ends in misery.
