The mighty battleship Yamato, is a symbol of Japanese ingenuity going back to WWII. It was the largest battleship ever made and had more firepower than any other warship afloat during its time in service which sadly was not very long because it was nearly completed when it first set sail at the end of the war. IT was sent basically on a suicide mission to the battle of Okinawa (?). The ship is a cultural symbol that still lies deeply in the hearts of the Japanese people because it was like the people themselves, so very unique as a society and a world culture. The innovative mindset that has brought the Japanese culture out of World War II and into the 21st century as one of the leading nations on this earth, and as one that has set itself as a symbol of morality and ethics, makes it no wonder that the people themselves are a contradiction tot the NEW WORLD ORDER.
