The website explains Ozawa's views regarding constitutional revision, with specific recommendations for the new constitution. Ozawa holds that the current constitution was created under foreign occupation and does not reflect the views and history of Japan, and that a constitution created under an occupation is invalid. He also states that the Preamble should be rewritten; the emperor should be declared the head of state; Japan must revise Article 9 to permit the right of self-defense by the SDF; and Japan should establish the UN conventional forces. In addition, Ozawa proposes revising the notion of "public welfare" (公共の福祉), to include provisions for new human rights; abolishing the House of Councilors' elections, drastically revising Chapter 4 of the constitution regarding the Diet; establishing a Constitutional Court dealing with only constitutional claims and not permitting appeals; and revising the procedure for constitutional revision.
