 “Fundamental Principles of Democracy”: Human Rights and Imperial Property

Show Summary Details


At the end of July, the subcommittee turned to the bill of rights: Article 20, banning “religious education”; Article 24, on marriage and the family; Articles 25–28, to which the Social Democrats sought to add a guarantee of “minimum standards” of living, and Articles 31–40, dealing with the rights of accused persons. Ch. 17 analyzes these deliberations. The subcommittee's work produced intense sparring between Yoshida and Ashida around the issue of the imperial family's property. GHQ, in the person of Colonel Kades, kept close watch over these deliberations.

Keywords: Ashida Hitoshi; imperial property; Charles Kades; marriage and the family; religious education; Yoshida Shigeru
