The distinctly ‘fascistic’ elements of Japanese racism – defined as ‘fighting spirit’ – was imported into the West as being both ‘transcendent’ and ‘spiritual’ – and presented as an example to be followed by those Westerners interested in the practice of Japanese martial arts. Overnight a number of serving or ex-serving US Servicemen sprang-up in the US wearing the white ‘gi’ and black belts around their middle.
If Japan apologised to the Chinese people and strove to make amends for their war-crimes, the world would be a better place.
The Holocaust Denial industry is motivated by a rightwing hatred not only of the Jews and other races, but primarily of the Soviet Union. Holocaust Revisionism is in fact entirely premised upon anti-Communist ideology.
Capitalists do not care who lives and who dies as long as the money keeps rolling in. The US White racists would just as soon drive their tanks over the backs of the South Koreans as they would the North Koreans – if such action would guarantee a profit.
The venerable Xu Yun (who lived to 120 years old) was in attendance of this meeting when these monks arrived and made their case. He listened quietly to these monks and then hit his palm on the table in an angry manner. He stated that a Buddhist monk and his robe cannot be separated, and that in China, a Buddhist robe signifies the practice of both strict celibacy and vegetarianism – without the Vinaya Discipline – Chinese Buddhism simply would not make sense.
Li Ji Shen referred this dispute to Zhou Enlai (who discussed it with Mao Zedong), and it was agreed that Xu Yun was correct. This decision was taken because at the time certain members of the international community were attacking China with regards to human rights issues. From that day onwards, traditional Chinese religion has been protected under law.
