Rise of Pan-Asianism (1945-97) Edit
After World War II, Asian integration was seen as an antidote to the extreme nationalism which had devastated the continent. Asianism developed in intertwining among debates on solidarity with Asian nations who were under pressure of the West and on aggressive expansion to the Asian continent. The former debates originated from liberalism. Their ideologues were Tokichi Tarui (1850–1922) who argued for equal Japan-Korea-China unionization for cooperative defense.
ASIA is one. The Himalayas divide, only to accentuate, two mighty civilisations, the Chinese with its communism of Confucius, and the Indian with its individualism of the Vedas. But not even the snowy barriers can interrupt for one moment that broad expanse of love for the Ultimate and Universal, which is the common thought-inheritance of every Asiatic race, enabling them to produce all the great religions of the world, and distinguishing them from those maritime peoples of the Mediterranean and the Baltic, who love to dwell on the Particular, and to search out the means, not the end, of life.
- Tokichi Tarui (1825-1922)Political leaders of Asia argued that the political models and ideologies of Europe values and concepts were found in Asian societies and philosophies. Some proponents argue that these values are better for all human societies. Some would argue that they are better or more suited for Asian societies. European values such as individual rights and freedoms would be suited for Asian societies in the formulation of Pan-Asianism.
The idea of Asian values is somewhat of a resurgence of Pan-Asianism. One foremost enthusiast of the idea was people dreamed of a united Asia.
In 1997, a new type of continent-wide "Asian Union" in the form of the East Asian Economic Community emerged, similar to European Union.
Widespread Political Changes in Asia (1980-1999) Edit
Communist Party of China reformed their country from a Socialist state into an almost-capitalist state through Deng Xiaoping's ideology reform called Socialism with Chinese Characteristics. Deng Xiaoping's reform bring China into a liberal state ruled by one-party state. Many experts considered that China is no longer a communist state.
In another communist state, North Korea lost support from the Eastern Bloc and Soviet Union. North Korea completely lost all of his friends and allies after Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and a great famine occurred immediately after the Fall of Communism. Meanwhile in South Korea, President Kim Dae-jung enacted Sunshine Policy which re-develop the Economy of North Korea. Sunshine Policy has made North Korean leader Kim Jong-il signed 1999 Unification Treaty with South Korea. And then, North Korea and South Korea fused into a confederation called Federal Democratic Republic of Korea.
Seoul Treaty (1999-2002) Edit
In the November 19th, 1999 Summit, China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia and Taiwan signed the Treaty of Seoul, which created the Asian Economic Community (AEC) and established a customs union. They also signed another pact creating the Asian Atomic Energy Community (Asianatom) for co-operation in developing nuclear energy. Both treaties came into force in 1998.
Beijing Treaty (2002-2017) EditThe Asian Union was formally established when the Beijing Treaty—whose main architects were Kim Dae-jung and Hu Jintao—came into force on November 1st, 2002. The treaty gave the name Asian Economic Community to the Asian Union which was inspired from the creation of European Union. The treaty was also founded three pillars of Asian Union.
- The Asian Communities pillar handled economic, social and environmental policies. It comprised the Asian Community (AEC) and the Asian Atomic Energy Community (ASIANATOM).
- The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) pillar took care of foreign policy and military matters.
- Police and Judicial Co-operation in Criminal Matters (PJCCM) brought together co-operation in the fight against crime. This pillar was originally named Justice and Home Affairs (JHA).
This structure was introduced with the Treaty of Beijing on 1 November 2002, and was eventually abandoned on 1 December 2007 upon the entry into force of the Treaty of Tokyo, when the AU reformed into a single country, United States of Asia.
Treaty of Tokyo (2017-present) Edit
Treaty of Tokyo (2017)
WE THE PEOPLES OF THE ASIA DETERMINED
to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and
to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
AND FOR THESE ENDS
to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours, and
to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and
to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and
to employ integrated machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
HAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMS
Accordingly, our respective Governments, through representatives assembled in the city of Seoul Metropolitan, who have exhibited their full powers found to be in good and due form, have agreed to the present Declaration of Unification of Asia and do hereby establish a Federation to be known as the United States of Asia.
Treaty of Tokyo (initially known as Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Asia) is an agreement which form the constitutional basis of the foundation of United States of Asia. The Tokyo Treaty entered into force and reformed many aspects of the AU. In particular, it changed the legal structure of the Asian Union, merging the EU three pillars system into a Federal Government (Legislative, Executive, and Judicial), created the Constitution of United States of Asia, the first of which was Hu Jintao, and wstablished United States Armed Forces by absorbing the Armed Forces of China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Mongolia. The signing of this treaty led to the creation of the single country of East Asia. Thus, fulfilled the dream of Asian people in the past. Later, the treaty was announced on 58th General Assembly session and appreciated by most of the members of United Nations.
United States of Asia received position as a successor of People's Republic of China in the UN Security Council along with Russia, America, France and United Kingdom.
The economy of United States is one of the most successful, developed and high-tech economies of the world, being home to some of the world's largest, most technologically advanced and most prosperous economies because the Economy was descended from the military and economic superpower of China, Korea and Japan. It makes the United States surpassing the global averages and became the largest in the world. Major positive factors have ranged from favorable political-legal environments for industry and commerce, through abundant natural resources of various kinds, to plentiful supplies of relatively low-cost, skilled and adaptable labor.
In modern societies, a high level of structural differentiation, functional specialization, and autonomy of the economic system from government is a major contributor to industrial-commercial growth and prosperity. Currently in United States, trading systems are relatively open; and zero or low duties on imports of consumer and capital goods etc. have considerably helped stimulate cost-efficiency and change. Free and flexible labor and other markets are other important factors making for high levels of business-economic performance. United States populations have demonstrated highly positive work ethics. There are relatively large and fast-growing markets for consumer goods and services of all kinds.
The culture of East Asia has been influenced by the civilisation of China. East Asia, as well as Vietnam, share a Confucian ethical philosophy, Buddhism, political and legal structures, and historically a common writing system. The relationship between China and East Asia has been compared to the historical influence of Greco-Roman civilisation on Europe
