The goal of my essay is to show how the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan's multifaceted influence on government has diluted democracy and possibilities for its own reform. By arguing the pervasiveness of the party and its effects, I will show that Japan's democracy is inextricably linked to the LDP despite party reform efforts and despite redefining democracy as a comparison tool.
