So, the UFO Thing: Disclosures from the USG.

@Valued-customer's writing is difficult because I use English at the elementary school level in the United States.
So, I thought this while translating the paragraphs.
Will 3D printer be a tool to create decentralization of the world?

After talking to @Valued-customer, after reading his sentence, I wondered how the 3D printer would change Korea.

JFC. How dumb are people? I just learned that South Korea does not allow private citizens to own or build 3D printers, because that would enable them to build weapons.
So, South Korea is perhaps proving it's despotic competence by preventing that personal ownership of tools enabling improved capacity to produce goods, but I note that it is impossible to enforce that ban, and that lesser tools can't be similarly banned.

The above paragraphs quote @Valued-customer's claim.

Korea, China, and Japan have achieved modern economic development by relying on the American economy.
Since the United States conquered Japan in 1945, the United States has supported the development of Korea, Japan, and Taiwan to prevent the invasion of the Soviet Union and China.
Japan, which received US dollars and technology, emerged in the 1980s as the second-largest economy after the United States.

Japanese companies have sacrificed Japanese people to manufacture industrial products that are much cheaper than the United States.
Japanese workers produced commodities, suffering from lower wages and overtime than the United States.
Large Japanese companies such as Mitsubishi, Toyota, Toshiba, Sony, Hitachi, and Panasonic have become Japanese lords and turned Japanese into serfdom.

Japanese large corporations were called Zaibatsu (fin, "financial clique") because they monopolized and inherited wealth and power like the lords of medieval Japan.

Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") is a Japanese term referring to industrial and financial vertically integrated business conglomerates in the Empire of Japan, whose influence and size allowed control over significant parts of the Japanese economy from the Meiji period until the end of World War II. A Zaibatsu's general structure included a family owned holding company on top, a bank which financed the other, mostly industrial subsidiaries within them. Although the Zaibatsu played an important role in the Japanese economy from the 1860s to 1945, they increased in number and importance following the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, World War I and Japan's subsequent attempt to conquer East Asia during the inter-war period and World War II. After World War II they were dissolved by the Allied occupation forces and succeeded by the Keiretsu (groups of banks, manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors).
Modern-day influence

Today, the influence of the zaibatsu can still be seen in the form of financial groups, institutions, and larger companies whose origins reach back to the original zaibatsu, often sharing the same original family names (for example, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation). However, some argue[who?] that the "old mechanisms of financial and administrative control" that zaibatsu once enjoyed have been destroyed. Despite the absence of an actual sweeping change to the existence of large industrial conglomerates in Japan, the zaibatsu's previous vertically integrated chain of command, ending with a single family, has now widely been displaced by the horizontal relationships of association and coordination characteristic of keiretsu (系列). Keiretsu, meaning "series" or "subsidiary", could be interpreted as being suggestive of this difference.


Japan's Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") politically embraced American democracy to get US aid, but remained economically feudal.
The Japanese government and corporations have set standards for introducing US capital and new technologies.
Japan lacks resources and food, but because of its inexpensive workforce, it clung to the development and growth of the manufacturing industry.

The United States became rich, based on the development of agriculture, but Japan turned farmers into low-wage factory workers and relied entirely on manufacturing.
Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") created the current manufacturing powerhouse by thoroughly sacrificing Japanese agriculture.
Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") ordered the Japanese to make sacrifices for the country and the enterprise.
Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") monopolized the dollars and new technology received from the United States, and banned Japanese people from creating their own private businesses.
Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") politically embraced American democracy and capitalism, but economically made the Japanese into feudal serfdom.
Of course, as Japan's economy developed, Japanese living standards and incomes rose, but Zaibatsu (tsu, "financial clique") still dominated Japan.

Japanese Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique") dominate Japan from the Middle Ages to the present.
They are in a position similar to China's Warlords, loved by @Valued-customer.😂

When Japan became an economic power, Korea imitated Japan's Zaibatsu (財閥, "financial clique").

A chaebol 財閥 (/ˈtʃeɪbɒl, ˈdʒɛbəl/;[1][2] Korean: [tɕɛ̝.bʌl] (About this soundlisten)) is a large industrial conglomerate that is run and controlled by an owner or family in South Korea.[2] A chaebol often consists of many diversified affiliates, controlled by an owner whose power over the group often exceeds legal authority.[3] The term is often used in a context similar to that of the English word "conglomerate".[citation needed] The first known use in an English text was in 1972.[2] Several dozen large South Korean family-controlled corporate groups fall under this definition.

The chaebol have also played a significant role in South Korean politics. In 1988, a member of a chaebol family, Chung Mong-joon, president of Hyundai Heavy Industries, successfully ran for the National Assembly of South Korea. Other business leaders also were chosen to be members of the National Assembly through proportional representation. Hyundai has made efforts to contribute to the thawing North Korean and South Korean relations, but not without controversy.[4] Many South Korean family-run chaebols have been criticized for low dividend payouts and other governance practices that favour controlling shareholders at the expense of ordinary investors.[5]


So, Samsung (Korean: Samsung; Hanja: 三星; Korean pronunciation: [samsʌŋ]; means "three stars" in English) and Hyundai Group (IPA: [hjə́ːndɛ]) [1] (Korean: Hyundai Group; Hanja: 現代 Group ) Was born.

Samsung (Korean: 삼성; Hanja: 三星; Korean pronunciation: [samsʌŋ]; means "three stars" in English) is a South Korean multinational conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul.[1] It comprises numerous affiliated businesses,[1] most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business conglomerate).

Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades, the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities, and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since 1990, Samsung has increasingly globalised its activities and electronics; in particular, its mobile phones and semiconductors have become its most important source of income. As of 2017, Samsung has the 6th highest global brand value.[6]


Hyundai Group (IPA: [hjə́ːndɛ])[1] (Korean: 현대그룹; Hanja: 現代그룹) is a South Korean conglomerate founded by Chung Ju-yung. The first company in the group was founded in 1947 as a construction company. With government assistance, Chung and his family members rapidly expanded into various industries, eventually becoming South Korea's second Enterprise Group. The company spun off many of its better known businesses after the 1997 Asian financial crisis, including Hyundai Motor Group, Hyundai Department Store Group, and Hyundai Heavy Industries Group. Chung Ju-yung was directly in control of the company until his death in 2001.


The chaebol 財閥 now dominates Korea's politics and economy. They thoroughly mimic Zaibatsu (財閥 tsu, "financial clique").

They have in common that the warlords who monopolize and inherit the capital and new technologies that the United States gives them have created Korean chaebol 財閥 and Japanese Zaibatsu (財閥 tsu, "financial clique").
They(財閥) are promoting that centralization brings prosperity and development.

They are hindering the actions of individuals to create personal businesses by embracing new technologies and capital from the United States.

@valued-customer argues that 3D printers allow individuals to escape the domination of state and business.

Can 3D printers destroy the centralization system dominated by Zaibatsu (財閥 tsu, "financial clique") in East Asia and complete the decentralization system?
