    the LDP was secretly bankrolled by the LDP back in the 60's and 70's.  It did stop so far as I know.  From living here, I can tell you that Japanese people have a problem with being passive and allowing themselves to be socially cowed into complacency.  

    It took a lot of frustration to make this happen.  Also, '93 was a weak coalition government.  This majority will be almost all DPJ, so if they fail its on their own merits.
