【国家総合職・外務専門職】 RC(3)

明日、奥さんのお友達が家に遊びに来て、女子会するので 追い出されてしまいます。大阪でも行って美味しいものを食べて癒されましょうかね。それともミート矢澤へ行って並ぶか、ヒッコリーでご飯を食べるか 悩みどころです。それとも サイクリングと温泉へ行くか。選択肢が増えると判断に迷いますね。多分、サイクリングと温泉に落ち着くと思います。最近、あまり街中へ行くよりも自然に触れ合うことの方がそちらを取りますね。


Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling coalition on Thursday morning pushed through a controversial bill aimed at preventing terrorism and other serious crimes, despite fears it could undercut the civil liberties the nation has enjoyed since the end of World War II.

"This law is absolutely necessary for the safety of our country," Justice Minister Katsutoshi Kaneda said after the passage of the bill. The enactment follows a spate of terrorist attacks in the U.K. this year, sparking concern about Islamist extremism around the globe.

But Abe's move has also triggered nervous talk of Japan sliding back toward the dark prewar era, when activists and labor unionists were arrested in the name of "public safety" under the notorious Peace Preservation Law of 1925.

The new law grants authorities broad surveillance powers and appears to upend the traditional principle that a crime is only punishable once it has been committed.

Tobias Harris, Japan analyst at Teneo Intelligence, does not see the bill as an attempt to revert to prewar conditions. He argues it is an effort to build a "21st-century security state on par with those in the U.S., the U.K. and elsewhere."
