Very Clever, Mr. Dahl

Roger Dahl in Seattle has some of the best cartoons about Japanese politics. Absurdities, indeed.

If I have to spell it out, well, the current Abe government seems more interested in military might ("collective defense") and Constitutional reform and helping large corporations enter the arms export market, than in protecting farmers and the people who are already under pressure from cheap imports of food, and all of that, from TPP and other free trade agreements, that Abe seems to imagine will - do what to Japan?

Thus the "plowshares" joke...

But you long-suffering Kurashi readers all got that, right?
