from The Daily Sheeple:
For most of Germany’s post World War Two history, their political scene has been largely devoid of any right-wing rhetoric. The reason why is obvious enough. Living under a brutal fascist regime that contributed to the deaths of millions has a habit of making any right-wing idea seem unappealing.
Japan’s culture has gone through the same process. After living under an openly militaristic regime that ended with two nuked cities, Japan has developed one of the most pacifistic foreign policies on the planet.
When Japan’s parliament passed a law allowing their troops to deploy overseas, tens of thousands of Japanese citizens took to the streets to protest the decision. It’s not just a cornerstone of their legal code, being anti-war is a big part of their culture too.
Where Germany and Japan differ however, is how the Germans have succumbed to debilitating guilt over the actions of their ancestors. For decades they have been relentlessly shamed by the rest of Western civilization for what they did in World War Two. Unfortunately, that shame has been so devastating that as a culture, Germany has no sense of self-preservation.
Among many young Germans, there is almost a sense that they don’t care about the future of their nationality, and that perhaps it would be better if they just died off. You can’t even sport a German flag in that country without being called a Nazi. And above all else, this shame has led directly to the acceptance of millions of people from the Middle East.
