This website states Yasuoka's views on the constitution and constitutional revision. It also includes concise summaries by many renowned scholars and politicians on their perspectives on constitutional revision, the right of collective self-defense, and popular election of the prime minister. Yasuoka respects the three fundamental principles in the current constitution – popular sovereignty, fundamental human rights, and pacifism. However, he also states that the current constitution should be revised to address emergencies and specify Japan's right to maintain military power for self defense and international peace. In addition, he advocates that Japan rewrite the constitution in proper Japanese; rewrite the Preamble, while retaining the symbolic status of the emperor; include clauses for environmental protection, privacy, new human rights, and the right to knowledge; make the constitution reflect Japan's history, culture, and values; and discuss structural change of the political system.
