The American Revolution vectored human history away from the doomed oligarchical system of Europe. During the early part of the 19th century, Americans organized to spread those republican concepts of the Idea of Man throughout the world. In the Pacific Basin, those American missionaries and others transformed the political landscape of Asia, in particular Japan and China. This was much to the horror of the British Empire.
As a result of the successful American efforts to “Open Japan” and its adoption of the American System of economics, Japan was able to transform itself from feudalism into a modern industrial nation within one generation. Consequently, during the later part of 19th century, Japan emerged as a beacon of hope for all Asian countries that they too could emulate and achieve the success of Japan against the imperialist powers of Europe, led by the British.
Many of the same Japanese leaders, who had led the Meiji Restoration and implemented the American System of political economy, also played a critical role in supporting the revolution which led to the establishment of the Republic of China by Dr. Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) in 1911. This important history is not generally known. Yet, it is a crucial philosophical, moral, and intellectual building-block in the foundation of achieving the necessary development of the world, and Asia specifically, under the Four Powers Initiative (China, India, Russia, and the USA) advanced by the American economist and statesman Lyndon LaRouche.
The writings, by and about Dr. Sun, posted on this web page is a concerted effort to provide an adequate understanding of this history.
