We do not presume to rule the world, to tell Indians how they should arrange their existence, or to tell Americans how to better organize their continent. Our opinion that East Asia belongs to the East Asians comes from our most sincere heart. We only want to establish ourselves where we can also maintain ourselves in the long-run. Our living space should not be larger than our life can really fill with the strength of our hearts, with the might of our swords and the fertility of our clans.

The plutocrats, however, indeed traders, shopkeepers and speculators, live in a world of unrealities. Only during the short apparent bloom of mercantilism did they appear to be the great realists, whose “sense of reality” dominated the world. On what is their claim based and on what is their power based?

In Australia, the descendants of a handful of adventurers occupy a continent. Their land acquisition met no resistance from the infinitely primitive natives. Literally taken, they moved into an empty house. But does an empty house always belong to whoever moves in? The Australians were only happy with their property so long as nobody showed up to contest it. They have nothing to show except right of custom. No folk energy, no weapons, not even a colonial achievement. But Japan knocks at the gate of their still empty house with its overwhelming folk energy, with the might of its weapons and with its mission to creatively shape Greater East Asia, which is assigned to it by fate. The 100 million Japanese must live in this space. The 6 million Australians do not have to.

The 100 million Japanese are a reality. The 6 million Australians are just the victims of a false world-view that confuses the transitory power of money with history-forming forces.

Because the many millennia old Chinese Empire has in the last centuries experienced a political-spiritual depression, the British and American traders, missionaries and their armed guards have been able to established themselves in its life centers and strangle. Their legal rights were only to be read by the rates of a few East Asian stock shares. They held as long as East Asia was weak and disunited. Their days are numbered since Japan sets out to fulfill its “Prussian” task in Greater East Asia.
