Article 9

The world’s second largest economy has outlawed war!

Imagine a nation aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, forever renouncing war as a sovereign right of said nation.

The immense financial and human resources unleashed by disarmament could be immediately applied to developing practical solutions to the world’s most pressing problems, focusing on green technologies and green energy, education, solving poverty and health issues, implementing strategies against global warming and desertification, cleaning up toxic waste, converting weapons factories, and the disposal of nuclear weapons.

One more thing… article 9 was signed into law in Japan in 1947.
