July 3, at 9: What concerns me today is the steady remilitarization of Japanese Self-Defence Forces and increasing popularity of imperialist attitudes in mainstream society. July 6, at 9: Every culture has something that they are ashamed of.
If you dig up, I can guarantee that each country and each culture have done horrendous atrocities towards human kind and many of which have not been acknowledged at all. To pick on just the Japanese and German culture is ridiculous.
July 8, at However, even though there are reparations made to the Chinese and Korean governments, the remorse does not seem to be clear. There are certain, and surprisingly many, Japanese government officials who vehemently deny any wrongdoing or war crimes committed by Japanese forces during WW2.
All in all, money is not enough. A form of awareness and acknowledgement of the mistakes a generation made is necessary for forgiveness and healing.
As a result, neo-Nazism is illegal and stigmatized in German society as should be. Therefore, current Japanese generations need to fully understand their true history and acknowledge that they will not repeat it.
June 5, at 4: July 3, at Often people can use imagery or symbolism without knowing that it can be hurtful to others.
They know about them, but they believe that their country and their culture has changed, and that it would be unfair to hold them accountable for the acts of their grandparents.
Understanding that these atrocities are only a small part of world history, we cover them but do not dwell on them. Here is a link to a FP article on the subject matter that I found interesting. You sound fiercely nationalistic and divisive.
Instead of building up national boundaries, why not work together to increase cooperation and understanding, to build strong ties, and to create a mutually beneficial future?
July 4, at 9: I appreciate the constructive criticisms.
I dislike chauvinism of all kind and I was afraid of sounding like one, so I ran a draft of this article by two of our editors, who are not familiar with the issue.
Both thought that I did not sound like an angry Asian nationalist. I honestly thought that this is an unfair assessment of my position.
I disclosed my obvious national identity, for I wanted readers to know where I was coming from and have a fair discussion.
History is what provides our identity — whether it be political, social or cultural. If Japanese government, elected democratically, is unwilling to accept its wrongs of the past and even abuse it, it is building up an identity that is not compatible with a world order in which all can coexist.
July 5, at I think most Japanese people, especially young people, feel somewhat disenfranchised and unrepresented by their government.
Nonetheless, if someone tried to tell me that the views and words of Stephen Harper define the identity of my country, I would vehemently deny it.
I am not represented by that man in any way. I think there are many Japanese people who feel the same. The words of one particular government do not determine the identity of a country. Both are equally deplorable. I think the Diaoyu Islands flareup is a good example of this.
This type of nationalism helps no one.Sam is a writer, speaker, blogger and founder of Recklessly Alive—a suicide prevention ministry sprinting towards a world with zero deaths from suicide. Even if we don’t take it that way, we should be respecting the elderly because we want our kids to respect us, we should just be doing it out of the honor we have for them, or their age and the years of experience they have.
Yes, you read the title correctly Contrary to what you may have been led to believe from reading about protein supplementation online or listening to the most jacked guy at your gym talk about muscle building, supplementation, and dieting, whey protein powder, which is composed of a collection of.
