（3）遵法守規（Law and Rule）
The phrase "以資爲本" means to support the capitalist system and strive for economic success, "以民爲主" means to support and utilize democracy, and "遵法守規" means to abide by the laws and regulations.
The Three Principles are the operating norms of our organization, and our members are expected to act as law-abiding supporters of capitalism and democracy too.
Persons who deviate from the three principles, such as communists, fascists, national socialists, totalitarists, despotists, dictatorists, criminals and outlaws, are not allowed to join the World Aspergers’ Organization.
Furthermore, it is forbidden to abuse the member sovereignty for the purpose of undermining capitalism and democracy.
The term "capitalism" generally refers to an economic system based on private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Its central features include a system of private property, individual property rights, free competitive markets, and free labor markets.
The modern democratic system was born out of the process of the growing capitalist class demanding civil rights, including the right to property. For this reason, economic freedoms are the precondition for modern civil rights, and the two are fundamentally inseparable. For instance, in the Eastern developmental dictatorships, capitalist economic growth brought a remarkable expansion of civil liberties and rights, and often led to democratization. On the other hand, in all of the nations of the Eastern bloc that abolished economic freedom in the name of communist theory, all democratic institutions immediately collapsed and human rights were suspended.
Of course, the right to economic freedom is essential for the future prosperity of Asperger's, and we must avoid a situation where our company is taken over by anti-capitalists.
Democracy is a system of government in which the individual members of the society possess the sovereignty to govern by themselves.
Democracy is often equated with majority rule, but in order to function properly, in addition to the principle of majority rule, it is essential to guarantee basic human rights such as the right to economic freedom, the rule of law, a fair election system, and separation of powers.
Modern capitalism and democracy are not ideologically or theoretically based, but have succeeded as a result of historical progress and the process of a trial-and-error approach. As such, they are extremely complex and diverse, vary from country to country, and also evolve over time, making it difficult to define them purely theoretically.
When considering what capitalism and democracy are, instead of using theories to define them, use as a standard the reality of existing countries which are widely recognized to be democratic and capitalist. Democratic capitalism is the culmination of the various institutions that are believed to make up capitalist economies and democratic politics in countries like Japan and others.
The following is an explanation of the characteristics of real-world democracy and capitalism, using Japan as an example of a typical democratic capitalist country.
Capitalism in Japan
Japan is a constitutionalist country, and the Japanese Constitution is a capitalist (bourgeois) constitution.
In general, capitalist constitutions are based on the central principles of sovereignty of the people, division of power, and guarantees of human rights such as the right to liberty. Especially, the guarantee of the right to economic freedom, including the right to property, is of great significance.
Articles 22 and 29 of the Constitution of Japan guarantee the right to economic freedom as follows
Article 22. (Freedom of movement, freedom to choose occupation, freedom of establishment)
Every person shall have freedom to choose and change his residence and to choose his occupation to the extent that it does not interfere with the public welfare.
Freedom of all persons to move to a foreign country and to divest themselves of their nationality shall be inviolate.
Article 29. (Property right)
The right to own or to hold property is inviolable.
Property rights shall be defined by law, in conformity with the public welfare.
Private property may be taken for public use upon just compensation therefor.

Democracy in Japan
According to the 2021 Democracy Index published by the United Kingdom’s Economist Intelligence Unit , Japan ranks 17th out of 167 countries with a score of 8.15. It is one of the 20 fully democratic countries of the world.
Japan has also received high scores in the Kingdom of Sweden’s V-Dem and the United States’ Freedom-Score (both internationally renowned ranking of democracies).
Based on the above, Japan is assumed to satisfy our criteria of democracy as an "existing country that is widely recognized as democratic and capitalist".
