Interesting one ... Western Imperialism and Neo-Colonial influences within the BK World
. I'd say yes. The power of being white ... the Indians certainly used and use white BKs as "power talismans" to impress the locals.
You ought to add, "Even though it has only managed to become the second biggest economy in the world ... " 35 years after it had been nuked twice and had all its major cities and industry burnt to the ground, with half as many people and all in a country the size of a single US state.
I don't recall the exact words used, but he criticised the society of Japan for it's inability to change with the times. Even though it has only managed to become the second biggest economy in the world. Yet Lee James spent many years in Japan, so probably gave up on himself and worst, on the souls there. It is a surprise that not much appraisal was given to a country where he was to have "served" but to come out with criticisms.
A lot of people know about the unnecessary War crimes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki but few know that the US set about to systematically reduce to ashes every major city in Japan, firebombing cities made of wood and paper. They were so "successful" at it that they even ran out of targets before the programme was to end. The victims of course, as in most of America's wars, were women and children and it is hard not to square the war against the "yellow man" with the war against the "red man".
Of all nations, few have made such quick U-turns as Japan, and continue to, and none have had such long period of peace and inward-lookingness. From a feudal society to military-industrial might to a peace orientated technocracy, all at unmatched speed. Their very environments, lacking in natural wealth and built as it is on volcanic weakness, gives them a resilience, resourcefulness and greater sense of imperminence than most people. Perhaps the Japanese kami were defending them from the BKs' one !?!
I do not know the guy, but talents don't equate to virtues.
Do you think it was a rejection of him or a rejection of what he was selling, or how he was selling it? I don't see what is soul counscious about putting on a song and dance. To me it seems that the BKs have gone from 90% cake and 10% icing to 90% icing and 10% cake and this focus on talents in service, whether artistic or business, is typical of it.
And so the guy is not a spiritualist then either?
