Decomposition and recomposition: “nothing has changed” or “everything is possible”

The political decomposition provokes quite opposite interpretations.
Those who think that “nothing has changed” stress the apathy of the electorate, the control of “change” by the conservative, an electoral reform
which benefitted the incumbent candidates and the growing power of the
bureaucracy which tries to fill the political vacuum. Nevertheless, the 1993
elections represent a victory – very likely a definitive one – of urban Japan
and of the adversaries of the corporatist State over traditional conservatism.
As such, they have created a situation where now “everything is possible”
in a very unstable context.
