    Here is where personal experiences come into play. I took Japanese for two years in college and learned it thoroughly enough to survive basic conversation. Two years of French in high school and I...

    Chinese "imperialism" is more of an example of "manifest destiny" than a sort of infinitely expansionist ideal. The idea is that each dynasty (including the present government, which I sometimes...
  3. Well, no, that's obviously during the Yamato...

    Well, no, that's obviously during the Yamato period. But considering they are descended from the Jomon cultures, then, well, I imagine most of the four islands were occupied by them at some point.

    From what I understand, there is connection inasmuch there is genetic commonalities between all Native American peoples and the East Asiatics--the Native Americans were descended from a series of...

    Wait, wasn't Castle of Cagliostro a Miyazaki flick? Or are Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli not synonymous?
  6. Sticky: Poll: What traditions, precisely? The tradition of...

    What traditions, precisely? The tradition of peasant oppression and serfdom beneath a warrior-caste? Medieval medicine, no sanitation, and the vast bulk of the population living in 10th century...

    Many common Western practices originated with the rich. You're right, not everyone could afford these things. Diamond rings were usually purchased by the wealthy as a sort of bride-wealth or proof...

    You have a keeper right there.


    Absolutely. Robbins' Diamonds has a marketing campaign where it shows women in their "oh!"-face (surprise/shock at the size of the diamond).

    I'm probably never...

    Japan doesn't have an ACLU that can further political agendas by helping foreigners hassled by cops sue for "profiling" and discrimination. Nor are there gigantic protests for "illegal immigrant"...

    In the States, I have learned that what the police are allowed to do, what they say they can do, and what they do do are three very different things. Considering what I've heard about Japan, I'd be...

    Ummm, how? He's questioning your claim that you "know what's going on", based on the fact that, compared to him, you've just arrived in Japan and have yet to even come close to having "seen...
  12. Poll: Look, firstly, I'd like to point this out to...

    Look, firstly, I'd like to point this out to people:

    Japan is NOT OUR COUNTRY it is THEIRS. We have no right to go there and cry the blues about racism or discrimination. We are lucky they even...

    Honne and tatemae contributed to the general populace's attitude toward militarization during the early 20th century. These concepts are antithetical to democratic sentiment. A democracy, or at...

    Ummm. Sorry, I didn't mean to come off quite like that, implying that you do isolate yourself. Indeed, it seems that you've done a great deal of assimilation. I'm interested in what you and other...

    Umm, Falkland Islands? Milošević? France slowly becoming a Muslim country?

    If Europe is at peace, it isn't because of some noble ideal. It is because the last war was so devastating that it...

    Non homo est insvla.

    Yeah, but, well, your island has suffered way more invasions than Japan. Celts, Rome, Angles/Saxons/Jutes, Vikings, Normans. Thankfully, for the past thousand years, you've been a'ight.

    SRM--

    Firstly, I'll applaud you for continuing to post here. All to often people post once or twice in inflammatory or controversial manners and then vanish. My opinion of you just shot up.

    First, I'll give you some advice. LURK MOAR.

    Before making a sudden, rapacious post like this (especially since it is your first), I'd suggest you take a look at the rest of Maciamo's threads.

    Yeah, and we fought a war against Wilhelm in which Japan was part of the Allies.

    He also said that he wanted the Germans to be remembered in China like the Huns were, which led to the derogatory...

    There is so much historically wrong about this, I don't even no where to begin, so instead, I'm going to sit down, pour myself some scotch, and maybe come back to tackle this later.

    Japan did fight a defensive war against the United States. And yes, our government wanted to get involved in the war, and the oil embargoes and other economic vices we slapped on Japan put them in a...

    What sort of paper is this? As in, what is the aim of your research? From what I know, the terracotta army was built to resemble the bodyguard of Shi Huang Di, the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty,...

    Tell me about it. There are numerous histories of the Sengoku Period, but they are all in Japanese. I recommended the Osprey Military History series as a resource on medieval Japanese battles...

    These are constructive. More to the point, they are not attacks upon Maciamo's character.

    You guys don't know Maciamo, you don't live with him, you have no idea what he is like. You simply know...
