In the early 1990s, Daniel Junas, an expert on Reverend Moon’s political operations, proposed that Moon might have gotten his start with funding from Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi was named in the early 1980s, by the World Council of Indigenous Peoples, as one of the most threatening transnational corporations. Which, when you think about it, is not such a stretch given the history of corporate fascism in Japan. Just because Japan is no longer a military power, doesn’t mean its very aggressive major corporations — like some in the US and elsewhere — aren’t still in practice fascist. The fact that Moon has gone on to undermine democracy in the US through his media holdings like the Washington Times and United Press International, only underlines the stealth of corporate-backed, anti-democratic, economic warfare.
