I went on holiday to Japan a couple of years ago, and stayed for 6 months or so. At first it seemed quite similar to the west, the same skyscrapers, billboards, TV, films, cars etc. The mark of mass consumerism was all around.

But the difference with the japanese is not external, it is internal. Looking at the japanese, talking to them and trying to penetrate the alien oriental mind is very difficult indeed. What are their motivations? What do they want?

Unfortunately the japanese have not really changed since the Meiji period. The americans tried after WWII, but that was set back against McCarthur's vision by the need to get japan onside against the soviet threat.

The result is that the japanese now have the same ambitions as they did in the 1930's - the same ambitions that spawned the rape of Nanking. The difference now is that those ambitions are exercised through the commercial sector, the Keiretsus, rather than through the military sector as it was last time.

I think we should be wary of the japanese, and institute sanctions. We already know that they are an uncaring and selfish race, from the way they treat whales, Ainu and the Burakimin - with astonishing racism and wholescale speciecide.

We should force japan to adopt the same values as civilised countries like the USA - we do not desire to spread our values everywhere and forge an Empire, so why should they be allowed to?

Importing their gadgets (which are produced by uncreative minds, good at technical things but not at language and art as we are) is weakening the USA and the commity of civilised nations.

Lets put an end to it.

First of all "Japanese" is NOT A RACE.

Second to call them uncaring and selfish is totally inaccurate. Granted they have their problems. But WTF? The US isn't any better. Nor are any European countries. I have MANY friends who are Japanese, I have been to Japan, and from what I saw that are some of the most respectful people I have ever met. They were totally friendly and courtious. Not at all selfish. Why don't you get a clue and stop criticizing an entire nation for the exploits of the rich.

This sounds suspiciously like anti-foreign fear and misunderstanding. Understand the things you say in the context of an outsider's view of America:

"Unfortunately the japanese have not really changed since the Meiji period."

If we are to believe the Conservative view of what America should be, then it should not have changed since the 1950s, when the nuclear family ruled, Daddy worked, Mommy kept the house in order, "everyone" had a house and two cars with some money in the bank, "nobody" was gay (or at least nobody talked about it), minorities "knew their place," and keeping up with the Jones' was the national pasttime.

"We should force japan to adopt the same values as civilised countries like the USA"

Sorry to burst your bubble again, but America is hardly civilized. In a country with the greatest degree of wealth, it's got an astonishing number of people dying of starvation and malnutrition (no, it's not just the anorexic supermodels). Many people can barely afford to feed and clothe their children (why do they continue to have children? Because the conservative movement doesn't like anyone to educate kids about sex, make birth control readily available or allow easy access to safe abortions.). Combine this institutionalized maltreatment of the poor with the institutionalized abuses of minorities, women and homosexuals, and you've got a country that is "uncaring and selfish .. with astonishing racism."

Finally, take a look at the way America treats the environment. Fuel costs are at an all-time high, but fuel economies are at the lowest level in 20 years. The solution -- let's destroy the environment for more fuel. Nobody's willing to stop driving their SUV to even do a little bit for the world. In rejecting the Kyoto protocol, the US negotiator said, "The American way of life is non-negotiable."

Your description of Japan sounds an awful lot like America to me.

I do not claim to know anything substantial about Japan or it's political and social problems, but your post smacks of a crack addict trying to lead an AA meeting. Before America tries to fix the rest of the world, maybe it should concentrate on itself.

    Not true! In Howard Hawks's BRINGING UP BABY, Cary Grant exclaims at one point (when he's caught wearing a peignoir by the aunt of the Katharine Hepburn character) that "I just went GAY all of a sudden!" And that was 1938! Somewhere I've read that this is the first known use of the word "gay" in something like its modern meaning.

      What I was trying to say, albeit, poorly, is that the modern conservative view of the 1950s is a utopian existence. Most homosexual acts were against the law (many still are, but are enforced less). While homosexuality may have been presented occasionally, it was never as a good thing (or even a neutral thing). Gay people were sexual deviants, and therefore just sick in the head. Anyone who was openly gay would likely be at best, railroaded out of business. As such, with all the homosexauls "in the closet" or deluding themselves into thinking they were straight, people were free to live a happy, ignorant existence.

      So, while Cary Grant, "went GAY" in Bringing Up Baby (a wonderful film, BTW), it was "just a joke." Everyone in America knew that Cary Grant was as straight as an arrow. He was as verile a specimen of manhood as any British person could be.

      I'm not going to argue the merits of the Kyoto Accord with you. I only offer it as an example of American arrogance and unwillingness to change.

      I won't bore you with details of usable land and overconsumption, but most sane people will admit that one of the biggest controllable causes of environmental harm is overconsumption. The biggest overconsuming nation in the world is, of course, America.

      For the American negotiator to the Kyoto Conference to come to the table and say, "the American way of life is non-negotiable," shows arrogance, ethno-centrism and a lack of commitment to solving the problem.

      America is a nation obsessed with finding out that if it does not take two wrongs to make a right, then exactly how many does it take?

      How many have so far signed it doesn't really matter -- the important thing is that there is a commitment in governments and parliaments to go through with the treaty, and this is indeed the case with Kyoto (in which 80 nations participate). The European Union for example, has committed itself to ratifying the treaty within two years time and has also committed itself to emissions reductions that go beyond those of Kyoto.

You can say, think, and believe all that, and not have problems living with yourself?

What, should we nuke them again, put them in their place, and indoctrinate them again?

You speak as if the US has the moral or ethical superiority in which to even judge the Japanese.
You speak as if the viewpoint of a single individual, you, can decide and analyze the culture and behavior of an entire nation, the Japanese.

Here, let me rephrase:
"Geeks, a mysterious race."

I went on holiday to Silicon Valley a couple of years ago, and stayed for 6 months or so. At first it seemed quite similar to the east, the same skyscrapers, billboards, TV, films, cars, etc. The mark of mass consumerism was all around.

But the difference with the geeks is not external, it's internal. Looking at the geeks, talking to them and trying to penetrate the alien geeky mind is very difficult indeed. What are their motivations? What do they want?

Unfortunately the geeks have not changed since the dawn of time. The americans tried after Columbine, but that was set back against Pinkerton's vision by the need to get geeks into industry against the Indian threat.

The result is that the geeks now hae the same abitions as they did since the dawn of time - the same ambitions that spawned the nuclear fucking bomb. The difference now is that those ambitions are exercised through the internet, the dot coms, rather than through the scientific field as it was last time.

I think we should be wary of the geeks, and institute sanctions. We already know they are an insensitive and inscrutible race, from the way they treat girls, Christians and the establishment - with astonishing rebellion and wholescale anti-orthodoxy.

We should force geeks to adopt the same values as civilised citizens in the USA - we do not desire to spread our values everywhere and forge uniformity, so why should they be allowed to?

Buying their products (which are produced by uncreative minds, good at technical things but not at language and art as we are) is weakening the USA and the commity of civilised peoples.

Lets put an end to it.

Reflecting how the people see themselves, could be worse, could look like Gotham.

But the difference with the japanese is not external, it is internal. Looking at the japanese, talking to them and trying to penetrate the alien oriental mind is very difficult indeed. What are their motivations? What do they want?

Trying, and apparently failing to penetrate a single "mind" for a country, therein lies the basis of racism and formulating a barbarian (gaijin) opinion. Who's the alien?

Unfortunately the japanese have not really changed since the Meiji period. The americans tried after WWII, but that was set back against McCarthur's vision by the need to get japan onside against the soviet threat.

Mac's vision was to be elected US president. Herbert Hoover's, among other conservative americans, vision was to model Japan after the US. They got as far as land reform. A big change, actually.

The result is that the japanese now have the same ambitions as they did in the 1930's - the same ambitions that spawned the rape of Nanking. The difference now is that those ambitions are exercised through the commercial sector, the Keiretsus, rather than through the military sector as it was last time.

The rape of Nanking was brought about out of frustrations with trying to get the Chinese to cooperate with occupying forces. The Japanese Imperial Army had been there for years, mostly after raw materials and fertile lands.

I think we should be wary of the japanese, and institute sanctions. We already know that they are an uncaring and selfish race, from the way they treat whales, Ainu and the Burakimin - with astonishing racism and wholescale speciecide.

One could speak volumes about how americans turn croplands into suburbs, pollute the water they drink, placed "indians" on reservations while taking the best land for themselves, kill to extinction any animal that makes us nervous or can fetch a lot of money for its pelt. So much for manifest destiny.

We should force japan to adopt the same values as civilised countries like the USA - we do not desire to spread our values everywhere and forge an Empire, so why should they be allowed to?

We should force japan to adopt same values... we do not desire to spread our values everwhere...

Uh, yeah...

Importing their gadgets (which are produced by uncreative minds, good at technical things but not at language and art as we are) is weakening the USA and the commity of civilised nations.

It's them dollar votes, buddy. When americans, who coincidentally design some of that stuff, decide they don't want it, the problem takes care of itself. Until then, you're just forcing your will upon the rest of the world and Japan.

Lets put an end to it.
