I am not unacquainted with the various patterns of language which would lie in a Japanese reactive mind. The homonymic character of the tongue and its lack of articles and pronouns might render it very forceful in engramic commands. Having visited the islands of Japan in my youth and numbering amongst my friends many able Japanese, it has been my conviction for the past twenty-three years that the Orient was in great need of the intellect, cleanliness and ability of the Japanese. And it was with grief that I beheld her extending a conquest by force which inevitably would have come about in due time from superiority alone, and would have pervaded Asia to its great benefit without the destruction attendant upon the precipitancy of war.

     It is my belief that the Orient needs Japan and that Japan could yet elevate herself to a point of cultural superiority so forceful that the only true conquest, the conquest by ideas, creativeness and construction could be effected throughout Asia, and that Japan is the single and only hope of a bloodstained East. It would be an ample and adequate reward for those labors I have expended should Dianetics prove to be a steppingstone upon the road to Japan’s establishment of herself as the arbiter of Asian destiny.

     Peace, to any man of action, is a stupid and antipathetic thing since it connotes a dreary and unchanged monotony and a contented and sinking stagnation. It was combat and his taste for conflict that brought man from the mire of swamps and set him as the king of earth. And those who talk of peace talk without knowledge of the inherent necessity for action within men. Combat and conflict, however, become undesirable when expressed in terms of man at war with men. There are far too many targets for man’s combative energies for him to indulge the social aberration called war. Conflict with other life forms such as bacteria, conflict between man and space, man and time, man and aberration, bring about desirable gains in man’s ability to persevere in his survival. Overcoming the natural enemies of man and conquering them so that they then align their forces with man to further such natural conquests is the combat force direction which has brought man to the elevation he now enjoys. And a further practice of such principles cannot but raise man to nearly indestructible heights. Thus one can see that Japan’s conquest of herself and through her heightened conquest, Asia, is not only feasible but desirable to the best interests of mankind as a whole. Her most effective mission would be to restore to their own destiny the aberrated and oppressed peoples of Asian lands. And this might best be done by arming them with knowledges and culture sufficient to maintain them in a greatly enhanced environment. Along such a course lies greatness, a greatness unsullied by the filth and disgrace of human war.
