  • 00:00:00 In this section, the video discusses a controversial film released on the same day as former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's state funeral. The film, titled "Revolution+1," tells the story of Tetsuya Yamagami, the man who assassinated Abe. The filmmaker, Masao Adachi, was a former member of the Red Guards and had engaged in terrorist activities in the past. The film's release was met with criticism from some media outlets, but it continued to be shown in several cinemas. The video then delves into the controversy surrounding Abe's state funeral, which divided Japanese society. One significant reason for the conflict was Yamagami's personal story, with some people viewing him as an enemy of democracy and others seeing Abe as such.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, the YouTuber recounts the story of Tetsuya Yamagami, the man who assassinated former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and why many Japanese citizens felt sympathy towards him after his motives were revealed. Yamagami's mother became obsessed with a religion called the Unification Church and donated a total of 100 million Japanese yen to the church, leaving her children without love and support. Yamagami's life was a series of failures, including switching jobs 10 times in 17 years and being unmarried at the age of 40 something. His mother's obsession with the church led him to feel hopeless and consequently commit suicide while in the Japan Self-Defense Force. Moreover, the Unification Church has been advocating over-donation in Japan for a long time and was sued in 2009.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the transcript describes the events leading up to the assassination of Shinzo Abe by Tetsuya Yamagami and the ties between Abe and the Unification Church. The Unification Church has been involved in several controversies in Japan, leading to legal action against it, and even after reforming its doctrines and statements in 2009, many families continued to complain. Yamagami, who had a tough life that he attributed to the Unification Church, thought about assassinating the founder of the church before deciding to target Abe instead, who he considered to be the biggest political figure supporting the church. The relationship between Abe and the Unification Church was denied by the church, but media reports claimed that 80% of the Liberal Democratic Party members had unclear ties with the church. Yamagami's assassination of Abe brought the issue to the limelight and attracted public sympathy for Yamagami.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the influence that cultural conventions and social structures have on Japanese media. The kisha club system, which requires membership for journalists to access certain information, puts pressure on reporters to conform to societal norms and act as a more well-behaved part of society. As a result, Japanese reporters may not be as sharp as their American counterparts in revealing darkness within society. While freedom of speech is strictly protected by law in Japan, there are still restrictions on media due to these unique social structures. This explains why the relationship between Abe and the Unification Church was initially reported by the New York Times, but not the Japanese media.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the YouTuber explains why many Japanese citizens are against Shinzo Abe's state funeral. Firstly, the cost is an enormous expense, with 1.65 billion Japanese Yen already spent, which is considered unreasonable by many. Secondly, Abe's unclear ties with the Unification Church, which once had ambitions to become Japan's state religion and viewed the Abes as a tool to promote its entire religious force in Japan, has caused controversy. Lastly, the YouTuber emphasizes that Shinzo Abe is not the enemy of democracy, but the alliance of a religion with political forces can become one.
