NO.179 American Studies by Professor Naoki Komuro
The United States as an artificial state established by a social contract, the United States as a religious state
Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out that the United States is a man-made state established under a social contract.
Dr. Naoki Komuro pointed out that America is a religious nation.
These are the essences of Komuro American Studies.
Professor Naoki Komuro pointed out that "Americans believe in ideology that should be universally called American ideology."
Americans do not recognize American ideology as an ideology.
American ideology is a common sense shared by American people.
Prof. Naoki Komuro is a Japanese sociologist. Japan's social climate is different from the United States. Prof. Naoki Komuro may have concluded the existence of American ideology by comparing and analyzing American and Japanese social cultures.
How do Americans perceive this?
The US founding business is still ongoing. No one knows what tomorrow's America is like.
“But tomorrow's America will be more American than America today.”
All Americans believe that. Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out like this.
Prof. Naoki Komuro called this ideology American ideology.
The American people would have inherited this American ideology from their founding fathers.
American founding fathers founded the United States for joint purposes and for joint defense.
Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out two real reasons for American strength.
One is that the United States is a man-made state built under a social contract.
The other is that people are religious states that believe in the Bible's union.
In the 1970s, Naoki Komuro wrote "American Counterattack".
In the counterattack of the book America, Naoki Komuro pointed out the two essences of America.
Because the United States is an artificial state established by a social contract, the United States always thinks about the meaning of the action that the United States has chosen. Here is the reason for American strength.
Here is the reason for American strength.
Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out that.
Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out that America is a religious nation. Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out that 40% of Americans are fundamentalists.
Fundamentalists are people who believe in every word of the Bible. For example, those who believe that Jesus has been resurrected from the death of the cross.
Prof. Naoki Komuro pointed out that the core of the fundamentalist is the American middle class.
This American middle class may be the core of the successors of American founding fathers.
I interpreted it that way.
“There is a tremendous amount of fundamentalist ability to form social order. Because America is a religious nation, the United States will overcome any crisis,” Dr. Naoki Komuro pointed out.
The United States is a nation where the founding fathers were founded for freedom of faith.
My personal considerationAmerican Protestants may believe that God's will will be fulfilled in the United States.
Humans cannot know the will of God. American Protestants can't even know if the United States is a nation that fits God's will.
Humans must continue to pray in search of God's forgiveness of their sins. Humans must have hope and continue faith in God's blessing.
American Protestants will have hope that God will bless the United States.
American Protestants will continue to pray that God will bless the United States.
The American Protestant believes that if God blesses the person or the United States, the testimony will arise in the phenomenon of the real world.
The American Protestant would interpret that if the proof of God's blessing does not appear in the phenomenon of the real world, the way of faith would be wrong.
For American Protestants, that person's success in professional labor is evidence that God blessed him.
For an American Protestant, the fact that the person has no chance of succeeding in professional work is probably because the United States is wrong.
The United States is a nation that was founded for the faith by the fathers of the founding of the United States.
If the state of the United States becomes unfit for God's will, Americans must repent of the United States.
Historical religious reform was a protestant protest against the Catholic Church.
Similarly, I think American socialism is a protest against the United States by American Protestants.
I think American socialism is different from Marx socialism.
