    Normally when politicians try to look modern and use a computer it always look kinda clumsy. In Japan they obviously do that differently...

    They're very popular in Japan among people who don't do much work on their computers ;)

    The message is actually quite ingenious

    He is user 'ccs' at 05Japan - Chief Cabinet Secretary his current position I assume.
    He gets the application 'proud' from a source repository.
    Still as user 'css' he compiles this application --with-passion in his own home directory
    He then makes and checks it
    Then he becomes the superuser (Prime Minister?) of 05Japan
    Only after he becomes the superuser he installs his 'proud' application onto 05Japan

    After that it gets a bit unreadable. But I must say it's quite interesting to release political plans as Unix commands.

    The last part about the "New Japan Seisaku" translates as "New Japan Political Policy".

    Definitely a unique way to put it, I guess...

    Politicians are never popular among people. :p
