    My attitudes say different, and I think we agree its bad, but its reasonable to assume Japanese people could be acting properly as they see it. they have had some Western institutions imposed on them, others they have embraced.

    As pointed out they are not Robinson Crusoe here, its not a specifically Japanese trait to treat women as inferior or different. The thoughts in the heads of the cheats were probably not "screw all women, we will do our part for the global patriarchy" but more like "geez Toshiro's a great bloke, can't we get him I ahead of Aio, he'd be crushed if he didn't get in and she won't mid she can get a position somewhere else". Its sexism and its bad but its worth trying to understand.

    That said I know of older doctors in Australia who discriminate against women as women, and I guess that would be happening in Japan too.

    They see themselves as resilient civilized people who can mimick the necessary, and create the necessary by themselves. In some ways, the foreigners is more barbarian than the Japanese.

    The fact they only bended down after 2 nukes speaks for itself, why would they bend down for some nasty words when they recovered so fast from 2 nukes? This is an very interesting ethnic group, full of capabilities, which despite that, will have their flaws, as the op mentions, but that's it, it's very civilized place, moreso than some "westerners".

    The thing is, the Japanese don't see themselves as Indigenous Omopa Lompas who need micro-management from Anglosphere.

    Socrates is on the level of Stalin? Now that's edgy

    It will be seen that, as used, the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley's broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else.
