The Conclusion notes that Japanese political leaders are currently considering whether to amend their Constitution, particularly article 9, renouncing war and armed forces. In this light, it is important to recognize that the postwar Constitution emerged from a collaboration – one might almost say a conspiracy – between American and Japanese leaders, personified by General MacArthur and Prime Minister Yoshida.

Keywords:   article 9, collaboration, conspiracy, current Japanese political leaders, Douglas MacArthur, renouncing war and armed forces, Yoshida Shigeru
