I believe the current title is in violation of WP:COMMONNAME - I have never seen it referred to as anything other than the Imperial Rule Assistance Association in English. Slacspeak up! 01:51, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree. I'm not familiar with any important English-language source that uses the Japanese name. --Yaush (talk) 02:27, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
Under "Ideals" it says: Prior to creation of the Imperial Rule Assistance Association, Konoe had already passed the National Mobilization Law, which effectively nationalized strategic industries, the news media, and labor unions, in preparation for total war with China.
But under "Political position" it lists "Far-right".
I know of no laissez–faire capitalist government that "nationalizes strategic industries" or the other institutions. These are the actions of socialist, totalitarian regimes, such as the National Socialist German Workers Party that nationalizes private industries.
