Actually, it doesn't bode well for anyone.

Too bad there was not enough background. For many not familiar with Asian cultures there are old wounds working their way to the surface just in the former Yugoslavia except there is water separating the frustrations.
Are we any different? We have many out of work, angry people here too. Other countries too are throwing out the guest workers. Japan did that two years ago! There are only so much frustration people can take..

I see no reason, why Japan or any other country, should not be subjected to the 'right-wing nutcases' as we have. You, really, can't appreciate them, without first-hand experience.

Poor god........ is up there, saying, "What have they done? Didn't they learn anything from Christ's teachings? Did I send him down there, for nothing? What happened to LOVE THY NEIGHBOR, AS THYSELF? What happened to, taking care of the poor, the children and the elderly?

(I wouldn't want to be in god's shoes, right now!)

I think that in Asia there isn't enough self-censorship against this sort of extreme nationalism. In Europe, until recently, people were aware that it was not "all right" to think this way.

This is very unsettling.

I heard just what is Zaitokukai or Issuikai. I did not learned this far-right movement to occurred in Japan where I live. I don't deem them to reconcile any foreigner. Because they merely found to put out their active power as far-right in Japanese society. That one don't run for social effect on country and foreigner what is a biddy.

We are all part of the universal sliding scale - up and down - left and right the pendulum swings.
