ファシズムと、大日本帝国と、日本の歴史と、神道について一緒に話しましょう~ This thread is for discussing Japanese fascism, nationalism, religion and history.
>>8 Cool images anon. Good on you for getting this board up and running. I don't have much to contribute at the moment, but appreciate what you're doing.

>>102 I'm looking at the color documentary you posted and one interesting thing is that while there are elements of westernization, they still kind of have a sort of unique flavor to their clothing and looks. I can only imagine that if Japan had won the war with Germany that they would have much more of their unique character still, especially since we can see over and over again in Kokutai no Hongi the importance they place on subliminating Western culture into Japan and throwing out the bad while keeping the good. It would be neat to see, to say the least. Also that footage of Nuremburg in there is great. I've been thinking about making some sort of good edit with music of Japan at some point, and this seems to have a lot of good footage.
There shouldn't be any appreciation of foreign nonWhite cultures. Bunch of subhumans really.
>>110 Then go to /pol/ if you want that. I like Japan, but that doesn’t mean I want to mix with them. Plenty of figures in Fascist circles in the past have had admiration for the Japanese as well, including of course Hitler.
>>110 I love being White and also love Japanese pop. Cope more.
>>110 Nonsense.
>>119 >>120 Can you say that you appreciate other non-White cultures too? Seems a bit hypocritical if you're just fixated on the japs.
>>126 Japan has a connection to fascism that other nonWhite nations do not.
>>126 My ID might have changed, but I’m >>119. How would be hypocritical if I was just fixed on the Japanese? There are other non-White cultures I find interesting, such as some aspects of Indian culture (though due to the Aryan links) and aspects of the Chinese, such as Confucianism and other philosophies from there. I don’t get this nonsense that because we are White Nationalists we have to automatically hate everything else just to show how pro-White we are. To me, and most likely many, these are two non-overlapping areas. I love my race, but I don’t automatically hate all over cultures and races. What I do hate are jews and globalists, and the invaders who try to settle among us. They have to go back. They will go back.
>>127 Also this. This is the primary reason why we have a thread on Japan. Wherever Fascism has sprung up, or Fascist-like ideas, there is an opportunity to learn something and potentially benefit.
>>126 I don't see how it's hypocritical to like only a single non-White culture.

>why yes, I am a devout Shintoist
>>168 That yatsu picked the best palette swap to be fair
>>128 I agree anon, I also had an admiration for the Japanese for their honor culture and high standards of craftsmanship and cleanliness. Koreans for being a mixture of Confucianism ideals with imported elements of Japanese structure. Taiwanese, for reforging their own nation of China against the grain of communist destruction. I can't say I give two shits about Indians though, I find them repulsive, arrogant, and parasitic, much like the PRC chinks. Japanese are probably the only other race I can hold to my own as an equal, and perhaps a bit less so Koreans.
>>208 With Indians I can definitely understand what you are saying. My rationale has little to do with India as it stands, and perhaps my focus on India itself was a little narrow in scope, because what I am really concerned with here is the Aryan traditions, text and philosophies that have preserved and passed down for the last few millennia. As far as I’m concerned they’ve been incubating it for Whites the entire time. It’s quite sad that India and the surrounding areas have been mutted up. All of the greatness is long gone. In comparison, as you point out, there are definitely some things to admire in current East Asian countries, even though as time passes this seems to be less and less true due to globalization and the like. This is especially true for Japan since 1945
>>218 Why is the katakana in the reverse order in that image, that's really weird. >>217 Here are some more good ones.
>>243 I was going to say it's mirrored, but that can't be. What a trip.
Any books on daily life in imperial Japan? Asked this before the migration but it's obviously gone now.
>>279 Yeah I can't figure it out. I have never heard of any sort of Japanese being written right-to-left when written horizontally. I also can't figure out what is going on with the spelling of Mussolini and Mussolini and Hitler there either. The second katakana from right in both of their names seems to be either ワ or ウ, but there's no conceivable reason why their names would be spelled that way, at least according to any conventions I'm aware of. Weird stuff. >>280 This might be a good work to start looking at if you can deal with the retarded borrowing system of archive.org. I'll have to see if I can find a PDF: https://archive.org/details/everydaylifeinim0000dunn
>>281 I think it's just the small ツ but the shit quality makes it look like a different kana. I'm not sure why Hitler would need it in his name, though.

>>293 >I think it's just the small ツ but the shit quality makes it look like a different kana That's gotta be it. Nothing else would make sense. Regarding the spelling, I've seen both ヒトラー as can be seen in the first pic I have attached, and ヒットラー as can be seen in the second pic in the bottom left. Not sure why there were variants in the period, it must have something to do with how Japanese-speakers perceive his name to their ears. Bizarrely though, while I was typing up this post I was looking for a few more examples of the spelling of Hitler's name in katakana, so I looked through the first video in this post >>243 Hitler_Jungend.mp4 and saw another example of what looks like backwards, non-mirrored text. Just go to around 26 seconds where we see: >曲進行ーラトッヒ i.e. in normal order >ヒットラー 行進曲 This must be some sort of weird convention. The traditional order has of course been top-to-bottom, right-to-left, maybe writing horizontally in either direction was a thing for a time when they got into contact with western-style horizontal writing, I have no clue.
On the case of the Jomon and Yaoi were they European or not, because the Ainu look Euroish and some nips look like Euroasians.
>>309 as far as i have read, they are just a different breed of mongoloid and just so happen to have a couple similar features to indo-aryan stock.
>>309 Regarding the Ainu I don’t think they look as European as people say, just spend a minute or two looking at some of the old photos in this video of Ainu. I know they have the lip tattoos, but even besides that they don’t look very White. I’ve seen a few here and there that do though: https://youtu.be/xc46pfG0aqU
>>314 It's probably the result of ancient admixture with Europoid peoples. Where and when this mixing took place and when, I don't know. It's like how you can see subtle hints of European features in the perennially raped and mixed populations of Central Asia. Where once the Sogdians and Scythians dwelt, now exist this Turkic mass of mixed descent.

I can already see propaganda posters where brave Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist warriors save cute Japanese lolis from swarthy Negroes. Unfortunately, around 40 mil. Japanese have to perish in terrible starvation when the peak oil economic crisis hits. But then, it's friendship time.
>>317 Weren't the Ainu one of the archaic Asian populations, independent of both Europids and Mongoloids?

>>322 The DPRK is one of the 9 nuclear powers on the planet. With 25 mil. people, it has withstood a 70 year-long blockade by the American Christians. Denying that is delusional. The future of Japan is love. The wisest choice is to choose a passionate friendship with Korea. The Chinese will be rougher. On a more relevant note, I hope, nobody is excusing Japan for refusing to attack Russia in 1941-42? The stupid Japs have lost Europids the war.
>>324 >shows some flags and propaganda pictures I am totally convinced that the DPRK is not a shithole, wow. Even fucking Pakistan, one of the most inbred countries on the planet, has nuclear weapons. I am not that impressed that some Stalinist gooks took some tech and made some missiles. North Korea has nothing to do with Fascism.

>>324 I pity them really. One wrong thing and instant execution.
>>324 North Koreans lovers are really fucking annoying. >The wisest choice is to choose a passionate friendship with Korea. Yes, Japan should be friends with an insignificant country that relies on trade and goods that come from China. Totally a seizable plan to defeat the chinks. >The DPRK is one of the 9 nuclear powers on the planet They are an insignificant nuclear power with outdated rockets and barely any nukes that can barely reach New York. DPRK isn't revolting against the modern world nor are they winning agaisnt it either for they have already lost.
>>325 DRPK fans are on /fash/ because of the board's cringey days when they thought Nazbol was a legit movement that totally wasn't gay and meaningless. DRPK has been debated to be fash on 8chan's board, because of their supposed autocratic and totaltarian control of the government and family state encouragements even total control of the state doesn't make you fascist and the family-state is more of enforcement of getting random dudes to sleep with women to birth children rather than eugenics and proper borns mating with each other. DRPK loves Trump and have the Rotschilds controlling their banks because of the pressure of closing trade that NK desperately needs to keep their sociteities needs from dropping. In truth no western cuck who sucks them off would want to ever live there.
>>338 Pretty accurate assessment. I’ve always found Nazbol’s cringe. I can’t imagine anything much more pathetic than sucking off some ‘glorious’ tinpot gook leader and his little Chinese satellite state. That’s all these crypto-leftist types do from what I’ve seen, worship dictators and shitty third world countries. It would be like if I went around in every thread talking about how glorious the emperor of Japan is and how “the eight corners of the world” shall be unified under one roof, despite being a White man living in America. I feel offended almost when one compares them with Hitler and the Third Reich
>>340 >That’s all these crypto-leftist types do from what I’ve seen, worship dictators and shitty third world countries. It's what leftoids and right-cucks both do at this point to cope with the fact that they should be doing something about the country they live in to prevent becoming a slave. All their favorite dictators and leaders have done nothing else but fail and get themselves in deep shit. I cringe whenever I see them crying or praising some country/leader for doing something that in the end doesn't really stop globohomo from reaching their country. Hitler, Mussolini actually fought for their countries improvement and made success, while everyone in the modern era either fails or cucks out in the end.
>>344 >he says, as Hitler dies and Germany is flooded with brown
>>281 This looks good, thanks
>>362 Hitler at least waged total war against jewry. I don't know about the other guy, but I at least can respect someone who put up a great struggle and then ultimately lost. Hitler went out with dignity too. There's no one really to compare with him.

https://youtu.be/Hu1q3QYBulE Can Shinto Become a Global Religion?
(1.61 MB 2690x2017 torii.jpg)
>>516 I hate this sort of subversive garbage. Assuming for a fact that Shinto is founded on some level of reality, there is necessarily a universal component (because truth is inherently universal), however, Shinto as a religion is undeniably unique to the Japanese people and their culture (which of course flows from race). The ancestors revered by the Japanese are necessarily peculiar to the Japanese, there are gods and shrines that are necessarily localized, and even the Japanese race has a special relationship with the sun goddess that is not said to be shared by other groups. A book I have read describes how Shinto is inextricably tied to the national and communal life of the Japanese, and again to such an extent, as is said in the video, that many Japanese people are hardly even aware of what is Shinto and what is not. It's such an organic part of their culture that in many ways they are inseparable from Shinto. It is authentically Japanese and a product of the Japanese racial soul. If we really think about it, people in the past did have their own 'Shintos' as cultures, groups and tribes. Reverence for the ancestors, gods and nature are universal facets of non-Abrahamic religion. Their traditions are unique outgrowths of a race / culture, and it is something that is authentically theirs and tied in with their own proclivities, spiritual feelings and relationships with the gods and ancestors of their people. To see this White dude dressed up like a Shinto priest is just ridiculous to me. It's the appropriation of a tradition that he has no link to in either blood or soil. It's the mere appropriation of Japanese aesthetics and traditions. I don't mean appropriation in the leftist sense, I just find it to be shallow and inauthentic, just as I do when niggers try to LARP at Asatru and dare to insult native White gods with their presence.
>>521 >To see this White dude dressed up like a Shinto priest is just ridiculous to me There's one in the Netherlands as well, he was taught by Yamagake Motohisha and was mentioned in his book. I saw he was planning on releasing a book on Shinto (in Dutch) as well. https://youtu.be/YEdO34LdurQ
>>362 And what are right-cucks doing right now to stop their countries facing the same issue? Germany is filled with browns because of libshits sucking off jews and reactionaries betraying the NS like a bunch of cowards, because "muh Jesus is kangz!". Reactionaries and other right-wingers haven't been relevant and successful in politics since WW2, because everyone knowns they're retarded losers.
>>541 Oh yeah, I do remember him being mentioned in that book. The real thing to do would be to study under a Shinto master and then use the information to help revitalize European paganism.
What book is this from? Sun and Steel? This man is a genius. Everything he said about the "last humans" is exactly what I've been thinking, and observing. People care more about comfort than doing anything remotely transcendent or courageous. Every sentiment he expresses about contemporary Japanese society is how I feel about the West. The absolute madman...
>>564 Those are pages from Andrew Rankin's recent book 'Mishima: Aesthetic Terrorist'. When I bought the book six or seven months ago it was not yet online, but lucky for you it seems like someone has been nice enough to scan it all and put it into PDF form, so I've attached it to the post. Not all of the book will be directly interesting to all /fascist/s, but for fans of Mishima as an author there is pretty good stuff in that book. As is said there, that's also some very Nietzschean talk going on there, and that man was almost prophetic about the current state of the West and its slave moralizing, weak and decadent morality.
>>567 Awesome. Thanks alot for posting anon. I'm going to give this a read. I'm guessing since the the author is name is (((Rankin))) the premise of the book is against Mishima's ideals?
>>571 Wikipedia says that the name Rankin is of Scottish and Irish origin, so I don't think he is a jew at the very least, luckily. And compared to some studies of Mishima which treat him like some sort of nutcase, Rankin was fairly neutral on Mishima from my memory. A lot of the book deals with his aesthetics, ideas of beauty, and the like and concludes that his suicide was the logical culmination and fulfillment of his extreme aestheticism, narcissism, desire to transcend modernity and desire to put a capstone on his entire set of written works, coloring them in light of the event forever. It's a fairly solid book for what it is.
>>574 >webm He sounds alot like Pierce... Desperately trying to get his fellow kinsmen to wake up and see the reality... Doing everything in his power to save them and his nation. But ultimately failing to penetrate the consciousness of the lemmings. I bet there are many Japanese like us who honor him the same way we honor Pierce, GLR, and Hitler.
>>576 There are definitely Mishima supports in Japan. I know that the film ‘Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters’ was boycotted and withdrawn from the Tokyo International Film Festival due to threats and protests from Mishima supporters, same with other kiked books which attempt to reduce everything about him down to sex and mental disturbances. Typical jewish psychoanalysis. And even in the introduction of that book I linked above I believe the author mentions that the popularity of Mishima in Japan has been increasing in recent years, and this was said in a book that was published in 2019. I know that Japan has its own equivalent of redpilled /pol/acks called Netto-uyoku, so I can imagine they like him.
>>576 lmao pierce would've wanted mishima gone too. did you not read the end of turner diaries? the true final solution?
>>580 >jewish psychoanalysis Remember how in the early 2000's every "documentary" was trying to portray Hitler as an incestuous ultra-pervert with every fetish under the sun, with testimonies pulled out from a dozen or so mystery confidants of the Fuhrer who somehow survived Nurenberg and weren't die-hard NatSocs despite knowing everything about the man's (literally nonexistent) sexual life. Only a jew could invent the type of sick shit they try to pin on every hero.
>>586 What does that have to do with his post?
>>590 It really is hilarious how far they have to go to try to slander Hitler. They really have nothing to draw on, so they just make shit up and throw it at the wall to see what sticks. I've read everything from Hitler being incestuous with his niece, to him having one testicle to eating shit and chewing on carpets. It's really just typical jewish projection of their own inner sickness onto a pure man like Hitler. I'm not even convinced that he had sex with Eva Braun. With Mishima some of the stuff is probably true, he was quite the eccentric in some ways, but it's hard to say because at the same time his wife has successfully kept several books that allege this fact from even being published in Japan, and his wife has famously denied this entirely. Either way I don't think he really 'identified' with it in the same bizarre way that Westerners today do.
>>595 The fact that you're putting Pierce and mishima in the same context together.
>>640 He was talking about the the type of atittude they had from how I read it, not that Mishima and Pierce would be best buds or anything

I was planning to scan it but never got around to it. I've never been sure of Mishima's true politics, as fhey seem to be capricious -- rooted in feeling rather than reason, but his hatred for modernity and communism are enough for me. He detested communists because of their desire to subvert art for political ends.

I bet that is a bit strange to stumble across if that's your pic kek. >I've never been sure of Mishima's true politics, as fhey seem to be capricious -- rooted in feeling rather than reason I'd agree with this. His politics seem very much to be based around his aesthetic and artistic tastes - not that this is necessarily bad. But the fact that he prioritized beauty, masculinity and action naturally lead to fascistic ideas and tendencies, regardless of whether he had really reasoned out everything in-depth. Once he took the sun and steel-pill, he was going beyond mere words anyhow.

>>604 >It's really just typical jewish projection of their own inner sickness Especially evident by the fact that jews are known to have an obsession with feces.
>>874 In regards to that, here is a good article on that matter: https://archive.fo/NCjvt They are an entire race of depravity, sickness and filth. It's like what Hitler said in Mein Kampf - they are like maggots who show up wherever there is rot or filth. I would be prepared to reject the idea of projection if it were not for the jews. If anything it is they who are primary practitioners of this. Wikipedia even mentions how the earliest mentions of projections are in the Talmud.

>>521 indeed, Shinto is specific to Japanese folkways. any attempt at mimicry would naturally be shallow and inauthentic, as you said. in many ways, Shinto is what Western paganism could have been if it weren't submerged by the Abrahamic virus. >appropriation in the leftist sense to clarify, the Far Left sees straight, White, western males as bourgeoisie, and minorities as proletariat. thus, any borrowing of cultural influence by Whites is denounced as appropriation, but of course other races are permitted to borrow from us. broadly speaking, the current Far Left sees race & identity in terms of Marxist class conflict.
>>1195 >Shinto is what Western paganism could have been if it weren't submerged by the Abrahamic virus. Yes, essentially. This is why I like Motohisa Yamakage said in his book 'The Essence of Shinto', that "Shinto cannot be propagated, but should be rediscovered in each country as its spiritual heart. The author of this book has, however, taken a few Western pupils, but he is still adamant that Westerners should "discover their own version of Shinto, both within themselves and in their surroundings". This is of course entails the rejection of anti-Nature Abrahamic religions, something that is slowly but gradually happening among small numbers of people. The true revival has not even begun yet. Most people leaving Christcuckery in the West are defaulting to Atheism, which is in itself founded on highly questionable and Abrahamic-like foundations. >broadly speaking, the current Far Left sees race & identity in terms of Marxist class conflict. That's very true. All leftist thought is founded on the idea of conflict as the highest good in spite of their rhetoric to the opposite about 'love', 'sharing' and the like. Turning the society against itself and dissolving it into atomized parts is the goal. This is exact opposite of the Fascist idea, or the idea touched on in Kokutai no Hongi called 'Musubi', or things being harmonized together. This is the Dharmic idea as well.
>>1207 >The true revival has not even begun yet. Most people leaving Christcuckery in the West are defaulting to Atheism, which is in itself founded on highly questionable and Abrahamic-like foundations. that's true. I remember back when the fedora'd atheists were running amok on the internet -- they were aggressive evangelists who held dogmatic views, often based on a flawed understanding of science, fed to them by current institutions (not to be confused with real Western science). >All leftist thought is founded on the idea of conflict as the highest good in spite of their rhetoric to the opposite about 'love', 'sharing' and the like. Turning the society against itself and dissolving it into atomized parts is the goal. yes, it's predicated on violent overthrow, and complete deracination and erasure of our heritage and the inherent differences between us. this comes out most strongly in the tranny push, which is attempting to deny our very biology. an understanding of svadharma will tell you that our differences are healthy and normal. >This is exact opposite of the Fascist idea, or the idea touched on in Kokutai no Hongi called 'Musubi', or things being harmonized together. This is the Dharmic idea as well. I was reading a bit more on Shinto, and came across this summary: >Key Concepts in Shinto >Purity - both physical cleanliness and the avoidance of disruption, and spiritual purity. >Physical well-being. >Harmony (wa) exists in all things and must be maintained against imbalance. >Procreation and fertility. >Family and ancestral solidarity. >Subordination of the individual to the group. >Reverence of nature. >All things have the potential for both good and bad. >The soul (tama) of the dead can influence the living before it joins with the collective kami of its ancestors. there's a high degree of overlap with fascism here.
>>1230 >that's true. I remember back when the fedora'd atheists were running amok on the internet -- they were aggressive evangelists who held dogmatic views, often based on a flawed understanding of science, fed to them by current institutions (not to be confused with real Western science). Yeah, that is exactly the sort of atheist I had in mind. There is of course the comeback that this is only one type of atheist, and that they are not all like this, but if we view this purely statistically in the same way we do with jews and blacks, and it's clear that atheists are by-and-large leftists and degenerates who have shifted from one variety of Abrahamism to some sort of materialistic Cultural Marxism / jewish science. Those of the Nietzschean variety are more tolerable and less Abrahamic, even if I think they are incorrect ultimately, and that they should not serve as a foundation for society. >this comes out most strongly in the tranny push, which is attempting to deny our very biology. an understanding of svadharma will tell you that our differences are healthy and normal. The big thing here is that since leftists are often dogmatic materialists they deny any sort of essence or essential nature of things. This is built-in with the idea of Dharma or one having a svadharma. Differences only arise due to "material conditions". The false tabula rasa idea and denial of Dharma in any sense leads to tranny madness and all of their schemes to deconstruct and deny everything essential to healthy and normal humanity. And that seems like an accurate summary of the key concepts of Shinto to me. If we take these concepts alone there absolutely nothing that can be disagreed with here as far as I can see. It is definitely very meshable with Fascism, because, at its core, the Natural Order in its most perfection reflection is nothing but fascistic. This is why Savitri Devi declared that 'you cannot de-Nazify nature' in response to the 'denazification' efforts of Germany after the war. Every 'pagan' religion based on Natural Law will in its purest form resemble what has come to be called Fascism in the 20th century. This is why /fascist/ is so full of pagans, I think. The more one learns the hardest this is not to see and realize. Within a few decades of Japan and their native religion coming into contact with the West, Shinto was not left in the dust, it squared itself up to (((modernity))) and waged war on it with modernity's own tools and means. It never really turned fascist per se, it always was.

Aren't Otakus more fascist or right-wing?
>>1851 Many of them are. They have their own equivalent of /pol/iticians in the Netto-Uyoku, who are linked with 2chan. You might find this humorous / interesting: https://apjjf.org/2011/9/10/Rumi-SAKAMOTO/3497/article.html
>>1851 >Aren't Otakus more fascist or right-wing? There are some Otakus who may be fascist or right-wing leaning, although I would argue that vast majority are probably closer to liberal or just neutral. Otaku culture is definitely not fash nor anything respectable to Mishima's ideal Japan, so if any otaku claims to be a fascist, then he would give up on his anime merchandise and consumerism. Otaku culture is filth that ruins the minds of young men. I even think that most of them are pedophiles.
>>1852 I heard of this as well, but I've always wondered if most or at least a significant number of them were nationalists. It seems to me that otakus are diverse in terms of politics opinions. >>1854 >Otaku culture is filth that ruins the minds of young men. I agree, but it's still weird that otaku culture attracts nationalists when anime can be pretty degenerate and has been inspired by American films.
>>1855 That’s very likely true. Though this article is written by a cuck it seems like, I think they’re right that while otaku themselves may be diverse, there is a noted overlap online between ‘right-wingers’ and them being otaku, but not necessarily the other way around http://neojaponisme.com/2012/05/30/are-japanese-moe-otaku-right-wing/ >the men who want to read a site about little girl anime and gaming also want to read about right-wing political content. We should understand that there is a sub-section of the web population interested in both topics. Kek
>>1856 I saw this article as well and know the guy is retarded. 2chan definitely influenced otaku culture and see definitely right-wing/fascist leaning, but to claim that all otakus are like this is illogical. He forgets that the more conservative/strong family types and Mishima's admirers and even himself all hated and spit on otaku culture and see it as a negative outcome. It must be another fat kike like that one guy who's trying to bring feminism and BLM into Japan.
>>1857 >It must be another fat kike like that one guy who's trying to bring feminism and BLM into Japan. Good intuition, he surely has a kike-ish phenotype with those fat kike lips and ears
>>1859 The same and typical bugman phenotype.
>>1855 >but it's still weird that otaku culture attracts nationalists I explained this on anon.cafe before but it's partly that people who are drawn to Japanese media are smart enough to realize how utterly soulless western media is, thus they look for alternatives in the only country that develops high-quality media on a large scale. Anime also portrays women in a much more submissive and feminine way, which is very different from the feminist 'girl-power' message of western movies, as explained in this video: https://youtu.be/f2prtR2ZNIk And lastly, not all anime is degenerate popcorn entertainment, there are some anime with genuine artistic appeal like Ghibli films and Evangelion. I also remember another anon mentioning Clannad before, which portrays this wholesome love story where the main character ends up having the ideal family: https://youtu.be/zebfh_F_SDw

>>1903 This sums up my view on the situation as well. Anime is ultimately just a medium, and it is a medium that is, on average, far, far better than pozzed Western media. There's plenty of degeneracy as well too, of course though, no one can deny that. The problem begins when one turns anime into a sort of facet of their identity, and indulges in degenerate content. One becomes like that which they are exposed to. Clannad is the perfect example. Still my all time favorite. If anyone is dead-set against anime, this is the one they should watch. It's very good throughout, but once it builds up to After Story it becomes perfected. Unironically made me want to have a family when I first watched in my late teens

Can you sum up what's wrong with otaku culture? Going by the posts on here there is an implication that it is riddled with degeneracy. Was it always like this or is it just like this.
/pol/'s take on hentai
>>2041 >Can you sum up what's wrong with otaku culture? I can tell you in a nutshell that otaku culture is shit, because it is filled with so many autistic spergs, cumbrains, homos, and lonely virgins who would rather fuck a drawing than knock up a woman. I honestly think if Imperial or a fascist Japan were to return, then otaku culture would be one of the first thing to be eliminated.
>>2042 This is just further proof that all forms of porn are not only jewish, but anti-White.
>>2041 Otaku culture is closely tied in with consumerism and degeneracy. However, it’s not nuanced enough to say that all anime and manga are necessarily degenerate. I have seen plenty of anime, and while one might think I could have better spent my time on other things, much of it isn’t horrible. What I would say though is that as one consumes more and anime, the chance that they are some sort of freak / tranny / pervert increases greatly. I have seen too much evidence of this to ignore it at this point. On top of this, the Japanese mind is often quite perverse to the White man, as can be seen with things like guro, extremely degenerate hentai art, etc. Despite this though they seem to have lower rates of (sexual) crimes than one would expect. Beneath the unassuming salaryman exterior lies a bloodthirsty samurai though, so if Japan were ever to liberate itself from the jew I’d hate to cross them.
>>2054 Anime and anything electric jew shouldn't be watched at all for they're all a part of the branch of (((consumerism))). As matter of fact I don't know fascist weebs try to pretend that anime isn't a problem. They cry "we need to sav durr West!!", but then watch anime and manga instead of looking back and enjoying the things their ancestors created that isn't made by the jew.
>>2056 *why*
>>2056 >>2057 I wouldn’t disagree necessarily. The less time one dedicates to just mindlessly consuming any sort of television or entertainment, the better, really. I wouldn’t say that if one watches it all that they are immediately irredeemable or anything though. I think anime has a greater negative effect than positive overall for Westerners though. I get why people watch it, some if it is good, but neither does it need to be defended to the lengths that some people in our circles online do.
>>2042 >>2043 This is just projecting at this point. Interracial porn is quite rare and unpopular among the Japanese. Not trying to defend hentai but interracialism is the last thing I'd think of if I had to list all its flaws.

Recovering degenerate here, this is true. If anything, the real menace of hentai is loli, shota and futa content. On a booru site I just checked these have over a thousand pages each, or multiple thousands, while interracial has a modest 507 pages of images. When interracial is only 5 times more popular than guro it should really say something about their taste for it kek.

But needless to say, I'm not defending hentai either. It's just as bad as any other type of porn. It is probably even more potent than real porn, and thus more harmful. Anime-style imagery is basically the definition of supernormal stimuli.

Just think of the ero-guro art movement, the art called muzan-e (attached), etc. This isn't to say that all Japanese people love this shit, but a subset sure seem to have an interest of it. Mishima is really not as unique as one would think. We can see short stories like Motojirō Kajii's 'Underneath the Cherry Trees' which is basically a dude celebrating how beautiful the cherry trees are, and how there must be corpses buried beneath them to make such a thing possible. And from a similar era we can see Hashikawa Bunzō say stuff like this: <To us boys, those days felt like the days of an endless summer, a vaca­tion that was going to last forever. The gods had come down to earth to fight as tribal gods, and the deep inner anguish of humanity could not exist under the skillful political shamanism of that time. [...] We knew that we were going to die young. Therefore everything was permitted <Needless to say, this orgy was a repulsive irony produced by the phe­nomenon of total war. [...] As far as we were concerned, if a silver grenade smashed a boy’s skull into pieces and spattered his blood over a summer garden, even that had a self-evident beauty about it. I'm not saying any of this to denigrate the Japanese, I honestly just think that this is part of their racial character
>>2076 >This is a stupid way of admitting you watch porn Maybe so but then the other anon being so sure of interracial hentai being the norm also says something about his taste.

It wouldn't be my first choice though since as you say it may be a bit dysgenic.

Anyone else follow "Muv Luv Alternative"? The VN cleverly twists into hyper Japanese nationalism. The mc is sent to an alternate world where humanity is in an losing war with aliens. In this timeline Japan is still imperial and nations are subverting each other even during this losing war. The mc is made of butter at the start and learns to stop being a faggot becomes a man. Honestly its the only good modern thing to come out of Japan imo. People have actually joined militaries (for the better or worst) after reading it.

>>4870 The entire Muv Luv trilogy is great. It's probably among my top one or two visual novels that I've read. It's a good mix of humor in the beginning but really peaks in Alternative. It takes itself seriously and somehow doesn't seem cringe. Great OST too. There's supposedly an anime adaptation in development, but unless a miracle happens it is going to be shit. They would need to first have enough episodes to properly adapt everything in Extra, Unlimited and Alternative to a satisfying degree for it to actually hit home, they'd have to have enough budget so as not to make it a CGI shitshow, and many other potential problems. The VN itself is engaging enough though where an anime adaptation is really superfluous.
>>4872 I mistakenly with no regrets played alternative first before unlimited and found it great. After reading them all I recommend people just read a summary of the previous title and go straight to alternative. The anime will no way in hell live up to it.

Outside of Sumika and Meiya's routes though there isn't too much worth playing there. Apparently I put 51 hours into Muv Luv Alternative, which is basically the combined length of what I put into the other two combined, so maybe there would be plenty of time to get to know the characters and stuff. I definitely don't think the experience would be ruined or anything. > Schwarzesmarken was alright though so i wont say it will be shit I think I watched the first episode of that but didn't ever get around to watching more. Maybe because I had never played the VN. Also watched two or three episodes of Total Eclipse but couldn't get into it. It didn't seem horrible though.

How do the nips manage to make even more depraved and degenerate porn than most of the west? The porn is completely ridiculing the state intitutions - ie. bukkake sex orgies in classrooms and shit. I mean the birthrates are among the lowest worldwide and the men are among the most feminized, but how has this society not descended into complete depravity? Why are they still so docile, good working? Japanese pop culture is mostly free of this degeneracy and politicians still claim to be conservative.

>>4941 >>4942 >how has this society not descended into complete depravity? Why are they still so docile, good working? It's important to remember that this degeneracy actually reinforces the docile, good-working nature of wage-slaves. Pornography and degeneracy are first and foremost control mechanisms. A lethargic, docile and feminized population is the plan. This said, the reason why the influence has been as bad as in the West is due to the comparative lack of individualism in Japan. This is becoming eroded over time though I'm sure as the Western influence becomes more and more pervasive. It's starting to even effect anime at this point. They also have the idea of 'honne' versus 'tatamae' in their culture. The former is one's true feelings and self, while the latter is a public face that one 'wears' that's based on societal expectations and conformity. >How do the nips manage to make even more depraved and degenerate porn than most of the west? Check out there posts: >>2054 and >>2091. It's something about their race and natural inclinations. Even their literature from the early 1900s is rife with perversion compared to the existing Western literature at the time.

The honne and tatamae should have as little difference between them as possible in a healthy society. The goal is a society that is doesn't have a schizophrenic split between a thin facade of civility and a reality of degeneracy and decay. If we cut open the pristine-looking corpse of Japan it would be wriggling with maggots and rot. >Because their deepest fantasies are shown on screen. That way they don't act on it. Honestly speaking that's good for them. Low crime rates. Indulging in fantasies is not healthy. One does not find satisfaction in fantasy. If the modern day Japanese had any spiritual inkling at all, or looked at their Buddhist past, they would realize that fundamentally desire is harmful. It's a lack, a deficiency. Sense gratification is ultimately like trying to fill a leaky bucket. It will never be filled as long as it is full of holes. They should seek to become satisfied and desire-less, with no leaks. This is the number one lesson that anyone who has struggled with porn addiction or addiction to other harmful substances should realize. They are seeking the stable in the unstable, and will never find peace. Japan is a rotting corpse of a society. Some Japanese people realized this in the 80s and 90s, and that is why groups like Aum Shinrikyo were so attractive, because materialism is utterly vapid and degenerate
>>4941 Are we gonna start this debate again? Japanese porn is no more degenerate than the western equivalent. The fact that they create mostly fictional, 2-dimensional pornography instead of live-action material like in the west, which often turns men into faggots or cuckolds, makes it seem less bad to me personally.

>>4951 I think hentai stuff is far more potent in the long run for a host of reasons. As is often pointed out, Japanese-style art is literally designed to be as appealing as possible to such an extent that people often say that anime girls are more attractive than real women. This is often said in a joking context, but there is a kernel of truth within every good joke. The features of femininity are exaggerated and perfected, causing the lower self to exhibit an even more powerful and irrational response to the stimulus. There's no lower limit to the rabbit-hole. Now regarding the harm-factor, there are varieties of Western porn content that are far worse than anything I've ever seen from Japan. This is mostly content from the 'sissy' genre, particularly in regards to erotic hypnosis. This type of content is pure evil in media form, to such an extent that one can find recovery subreddits for this stuff on places like Reddit, or read about people's experiences with this type of stuff elsewhere online. I'm sure there are other examples of this that I'm not aware of, but that type of genre is probably the most harmful in that people try to actually integrate it into their life and spend money on it. I would warn against strictly delineating Japanese and Western pornography though. I think they feed into each other, and people into one will often indulge in the other. Both have the same results - addiction, desensitization, escalation, binge and purge, negative health effects (mental particularly). Not to say you would disagree with this, but it must all be seen as degenerate, regardless of whether it's real, drawn or otherwise.

Most men are too proud to admit such a thing. But there's also the fact that the behaviour of these anime girls often reflect the traditional feminine features that men have always desired and which real women should emulate, which was properly explained in this video: >>1903 . I am actually starting to notice that online attention-whores are starting to copy the mannerisms and clothing styles of these characters, which may prove to be a positive effect of anime in the long run. >but it must all be seen as degenerate Of course, in a healthy society men would be marrying and having children instead of watching that kind of stuff. But with these kind of discussions one should really wonder what is the cause and what is the effect. Are birthrates and marriages decreasing because of porn consumption or are men consuming porn because they simply do not get the opportunities to form healthy relationships with women anymore?

>>4979 Besides the supernormal stimulus angle I already mentioned, that video is pretty spot-on about anime girls. Women in Western media are disgusting, masculinized and just forced into the roles they often take. Unfortunately these behaviors are propagandized to girls now from a young age, as it is pretty much said in there. > Are birthrates and marriages decreasing because of porn consumption or are men consuming porn because they simply do not get the opportunities to form healthy relationships with women anymore? Probably more the latter, honestly. It's easier and less frustrating for some people to jerk off to porn than to deal with the entitlement and arrogance of many modern women. Obviously a healthy relationship with a real woman is infinitely more satisfying than the short-lived pseudo-pleasure of porn. This sort of society where hardcore content is available at the touch of a button to everyone from children to adults would still be a major issue even without feminism, but I don't think if we'd be seeing the problem reach the levels it is now at all. It could also be that these two factors are feeding into each and mutually influencing though to create a cocktail of degeneracy. I've noticed the same thing with e-whores trying to act like anime girls too. Maybe it will leak into mainstream culture a bit more, it would definitely be a step up now from what we're seeing. Women would still be holding all of the cards though. Unfortunately a lot of these problems are near-unfixable on the societal level so long as our enemies control the media and continue to fix these things.
>>4985 >even they did not develop until they took in Western ideas This seems to be par for the course for the Japanese. A good chunk of their culture is built on foreign sources that they have assimilated. Their writing system came from China, philosophies such as Confucianism came from China, Buddhism came from India by way of China, etc. The same thing happened when Japan came into contact with the West. They began to assimilate things they found useful to compete with the West. It appears that they are not good at innovating themselves, but they are highly skilled at adapting things for their own use and Japanizing them. Though it could also be argued that (((development))) in itself is a bit kiked, given the fact that it led to what we see today in the world.

Academic studies are so routinely bad. I'm reading Helen Hardacre's 'Shinto and the State' and the entire introduction was talking about how apparently State Shinto is an invented tradition with no links to the past. Her reasoning for this is that in the past Shinto was closely linked with Buddhism throughout its history, and that Shinto was practiced as a highly localized tradition, and because the emperor didn't have direct power and the masses weren't really aware of themselves as Japanese. To this I can only say 'well, duh!' No one would deny that State Shinto was something new, but that doesn't mean it was an invented tradition. Already in the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki we can read about the descent of the emperors from the gods and of Jimmu accepting the mandate from the gods to unite the eight corners under one roof. It seems like what this lady is saying is because Shinto actually made the effort to assert itself above Buddhism, to unite a modernizing country and to purify itself, that it is suddenly a 'fake tradition'. Really, State Shinto is little different from what the Roman Empire did with its indigenous religion, yet few argue that it became inauthentic. The only major difference is that for State Shinto it happened in a modernizing nation-state

>>5551 >responding to bait When will you learn?
>>5502 A lot of these academics say that State-Shinto was an invented new religion with little relation to true Shinto, despite the fact that shrines which were not dedicated to the emperor/Amaterasu were still financed throughout the State-Shinto period and that local traditions most likely still survived throughout this period as well. The only thing I have read about it that was truly different from the old Shinto was that Buddhist elements were removed and the emperor was made a sort of formal religious leader akin to pope or caliph. I think State-Shinto was a logical and necessary evolution for the religion to become a more formal sort of faith, so as to be able to offer resistance to other religions/ideologies like Christianity or Liberalism within their empire.

>>5556 It's also funny because even prior to the Meiji Restoration itself we started to see the National Learning (Kokugaku) school of thought appear. The greatest figures of this such as Motoori Norinaga, Kada no Azumamaro, etc. well over a century in the case of the former and over a half century in the case of the latter before the Meiji Restoration, and already these men were demanding the separation of Buddhism from Shinto, the re-establishment of the Jingikan / Department of Divinities and standardized worship of local and national deities as a means of uniting the populace. What does this sound like? Demands for something akin State Shinto, of course. Reading about all of this too, Shinto priests themselves seem to be pushing hard for government support, and this was granted, along with the gradual creation of a more centralized and organized way of doing things, something which was hardly unusual in a rapidly modernizing country such as Japan. They did the same thing with the military by making a standing army, they streamlined organization of the prefectures as well. They did the same with religion, and I don't think it is inauthentic, because they were still paying great tribute to their shrines, helping get more priests to man them, and supporting both local and national ways of worship. As you say yourself, if Shinto was not to be overrun by Abrahamism, or other modern ideologies, it had to fortify itself, distinguish itself and unite the people. And even on top of that, the government recognized a variety of Shinto sects that they did not try to destroy or ban, sects which organically arose in the 19th century and gained numerous followers, such as Kurozumikyō, to name one. It's really just dishonest, I think. I learned everything I said here through reading, and yet they say right after this that it was 'invented' when the seeds and demands were there the entire time.

Is Japanese Buddhism considered 'subversive' given that the religion is 'universal' and originated outside of Japan? I'm not familiar enough with the history and doctrines of the religion to say, but there doesn't seem to be any conflict with Shinto traditions. I've never heard of Buddhism being criticized as subversive,either in Japan or elsewhere. in the West Buddhism seems to be associated with hippies and new age religions, but I doubt it's practiced the same way in Japan.
>>6217 Buddhism has been criticized rather harshly at times by certain more nationally-minded individuals in Japan. Even as far back as the introduction into Japan of Buddhism in the mid 6th century, there were apparently a lot of tensions over Buddhism since it became caught up in clan rivalries that already existed. For example the Mononobe clan and other ancient Japanese clans had had certain privileges and responsibilities that were undermined by the introduction of Buddhism, not to mention the fact that they believed it to be some alien religion that undermined their gods. It was the Soga clan who were big supporters of the introduction of Buddhism. There was a lot of bickering back and forth. Apparently emperor Bidatsu banned Buddhism for a time but it didn't last long. The next emperor Yōmei became the first Buddhist emperor. The traditionalist anti-Buddhist forces were destroyed by the Sogas and Buddhism was thereafter given open support by the Yamato court. Now later on in the 18th and early 19th century we have a ton of criticism heaped on Buddhism from the members of the Kokugaku (National Learning) school. They saw the worldview and Way of the Japanese people as having been polluted by foreign influences such as Christianity and Buddhism. They were also influential in the thought behind State Shinto. I basically see these guys as equivalent to pagans today trashing on Christianity and other universalist religions. It's worth noting though if you look into work that talks about how some of these people during the Tokugawa Era were trashing Christianity, they're often juggling Buddhist and Shinto ideas back and forth in support of their anti-Christian arguments. Buddhism and Shinto accommodated themselves fairly well to the extent that it appears that among the masses they really had no concept that Buddhism and Shinto were even that different if at all. I don't think it can be really maintained that Buddhism "subverted" Japan or anything like that. Later on in the Meiji period we start to see ethnonationalists like Hozumi Yatsuka attack Christianity and Buddhism for being subversive, anti-national universal religions. I believe he said something like its destructive influence was curbed by the unique nature of the Japanese national polity (kokutai) and its traditions of ancestor worship and believe in divine descent from the emperor and gods. Which is fair enough. That's a pretty firm rooting in blood and soil if one holds such a view. In the book 'Kokutai no Hongi' published in the 1930s (which I scanned and posted here >>36) there's a few mentions of Buddhism but it basically says something like it has been successfully assimilated / sublimated within the kokutai. The book is more concerned with subversive western ideologies and the emperor than anything. Finally Mishima seems to have shit on Buddhism, but he's a bit different from all of the other people I have mentioned. In 'Runaway Horses' he puts an anti-Buddhist diatribe in the mouth of one Shinto nationalist character who says that Buddhism is spreading weakness and nihilism among the men of Japan. It's basically him inserting his Nietzschean views subtly through one character, since he seems to have held Shinto to be a more life-affirming religion than Buddhism. The whole of 'The Sea of Fertility' may be taken to have an anti-Buddhist message too, I'd think. So basically, it seems like there has been criticism of it here and there throughout its history in Japan, but I don't think one can as successfully argue that it is any sort of cause of the downfall of Japan, or that it needs to be eradicated or anything like that. Even some of the nationalists writing on it seemed to believe that it was neutered and made pro-Japanese despite itself. Unlike Christianity it was able to accommodate itself rather well. During the Meiji period too there were a few incidents of anti-Buddhist violence too. Look into the terms 'Shinbutsu bunri' and 'Haibutsu kishaku' (abolish Buddhism, destroy Shakyamuni)

>>6217 >in the West Buddhism seems to be associated with hippies and new age religions, but I doubt it's practiced the same way in Japan Those hippies who took interest in both Buddhism or Hinduism in the 60s/70s did not realize that the people outside of the west who practice these religions are as conservative and patriarchal, maybe even more so, than the conservatives in their own countries. You should read Evola's book on Buddhism if you are interested in learning more about the religion, I think he refutes a lot of wrong assumptions about the religion that exist in the west as a result of these left-wing movements taking interest in it. One major point he makes for example is that the 'samsara' that Buddhists attempt to escape, does not actually translate to suffering but rather to restlessness, so it's not as defeatist and escapist of a philosophy as many westerners may perceive it. Also, Buddhism is not that universal either, the Buddha himself believed that women were unable to reach enlightenment because their desire for sex and having children was too strong to overcome.
The only thing I like about Japan is the amount of chinks and christcucks they've killed over history. Other than that there's nothing that good about them.
>>6208 That video is extremely disturbing. I've seen gore videos easier to watch. We must dissect the obvious here. We have a bunch of Japanese people, dancing around in Israel, carrying the flags of the nation-state of Israel, singing Jewish songs. Can you get any more cucked than this? They need to bring back the death penalty for Christianity right now.
>>6222 >The whole of 'The Sea of Fertility' may be taken to have an anti-Buddhist message too, I'd think. Absolutely - Satoko denying Kiyoaki's very existence (and thus denying that Japan was ever anything but what it was in the 60's - ever anything but Toru, decadent, greedy, and so on), in spite of their shared love and what she went through over him (and more importantly what he did to sacrifice himself for her) at the end of The Decay of the Angel was a pretty firm remonstration against Buddhist teachings. Arguably his death over her represents a kind of death of "old Japan" at the hands of, in part, Buddhism. Of course he also dies after the Meiji Restoration. >>6229 Are those Oka bombs?
>>6352 >Satoko denying Kiyoaki's very existence (and thus denying that Japan was ever anything but what it was in the 60's - ever anything but Toru, decadent, greedy, and so on), in spite of their shared love and what she went through over him (and more importantly what he did to sacrifice himself for her) at the end of The Decay of the Angel was a pretty firm remonstration against Buddhist teachings. Fuck.. I'm gonna be honest I had never even heard or thought of this interpretation. The end was always a bit of a puzzle for me, but it seems like you might have hit the nail on the head here. I of course grasped everything about how Japan was degenerating, modernizing, Americanizing throughout the tetralogy, and how Honda was basically wasting his life as he watched people like Kiyoaki or Isao shine brilliantly for a moment before dying tragically in pursuit of something. And he himself was turning old, perverted and decrepit. This interpretation of the ending would change my whole view on the tetralogy (which is already positive). I've gotta go reread. >Are those Oka bombs? Those planes are definitely carrying some pretty big bombs under there, but they're not Okas. An Oka looked more like a little glider, and they were carried under big two-engine planes like the Mitsubishi G4M (pics related). Sad Okas really never had any major hits on US ships. Some of the other ingenious suicide vehicles like the Kaiten submarine got some good hits though. 63 ZOGbots dead on the USS Mississinewa
>>6216 I realize, I just wanted to state those things for the record. >>6217 Buddhism is indeed universalist, but the key difference is that it's a Dharmic faith that can adapt and coexist with other belief systems (eg Shinto). this is unlike Abrahamism, in which there is only one Truth expounded by a jealous, megalomaniacal god, and all other beliefs must be subverted and destroyed.
>>6368 The crucial difference here is the Abrahamic idea of Truth. For them, you’re either 100% with them, or you’re completely in the wrong and deserve annihilation. There’s no nuance at all. The non-Abrahamic way is more like the metaphor of the mountain and there being different paths to the summit. That doesn’t mean that there is no Truth and that anything goes, obviously, nor does it deny better or quicker ways, but it doesn’t make someone with slightly different beliefs or practices automatically anathema. They also reject more than one life, making everything they do here basically a battle for souls. There’s no gradual uplift from ignorance into higher and higher states of consciousness or insight over lifetimes. The Buddhists in Japan evidently thought more in terms of the ‘mountain’ approach, given that they had no qualms about pairing up the kami with various bodhisattvas / buddhas and claiming that the former were reflections / versions of the latter (honji-suijaku). Even if they thought they were off they didn’t feel the need to exterminate them. In fact like it was said above these religions were basically tied together at the hip for much of their history. TL;DR – nothing in Buddhism really requires you to give up your culture, nation or to race-mix into oblivion. I think the entire deontological ethics thing is foreign to it too from the little I know
>>6369 Forgot to say I was trying to expand on what the other anon was saying. He probably knew a lot of that, but the guy asking about Buddhism might not
>>6352 >>6361 The series has so many levels of symbolism and possible interpretations to it, it's a literary masterpiece. I might not be the first person to come up with this and I have only read the first two segments in the series yet so maybe this is actually alluded to in one of the last two books but has anyone considered the possibility that the main characters of the latter three books are not actually reincarnations of Kiyoaki? In a Wikipedia article it is said that Mishima did not believe in reincarnation and we know that his very philosophy was that it is better to die in an aesthetic way and leave a lasting impression on the people you leave behind than to simply rot away. Could it be that Honda was so blown away by Kiyoaki's beauty and his death that he obsessed over it for the rest of his life and simply became delusional enough to believe that people who coincidentally happened to have those three moles were all Kiyoaki? Another interpretation for the first book (although I did not come up with this myself) which I like is that the relationship between Satoko and Kiyoaki is meant to represent the dilemma of Meiji and Taisho Japan having to choose between the old, feudal Japan and a modern, westernized version of it. Kiyoaki represents Taisho Japan itself and Satoko represents feudal, traditional Japan as is symbolized by her being part of the ancient nobility that had become irrelevant and her being dressed in traditional clothing. Kiyoaki's indecisiveness represents that of the elite who do not know if they want to remain culturally Japanese or become westernized. Of course, this whole conflict also permeates the entire book, with the aristocrats being described as constantly switching between western and Japanese styles when it comes to activities, food and clothing. Honda himself almost literally calls Kiyoaki a sort of symbol of Taisho Japan. I think Satoko's decision in the end of the book might also have some deeper meaning in this context, like symbolizing the true death of the traditional Japan and there being no way back left for Japan. Finally, as for the second part in the series, I feel like there might be a similar sort of symbolism in the love interest of the second main character. He is an ultra-nationalist that has become disgusted by the new Japan that from his view has been degraded by westernized capitalists. His love interest is a divorced woman, in a sense she has also been 'used' by men and is no longer pure, just like the modern Japan.
>>6404 Yeah I think that is basically the take-away, even though it is of course never stated directly. I think the idea that there is a single person reincarnating from book to book is a delusion on Honda's part, even though this does of course leave us with a series great coincidences such as Kiyoaki's 'prophecy' about meeting Honda again under the falls, or some of the things that Ying Chan says in the third book, but I think that's really beside the point. The apparent reincarnations, of course, are not the main point. It's all about Honda and what he stands for. This will become more clear in the second half of the series. The apparent reincarnations too become more degenerate and morally reprehensible as well. Ying Chan is sexually degenerate, Toru is shown as dominating and humiliating his elderly adoptive father Honda. The character of the reincarnations parallel Honda's own descent into degeneracy, as well as that of Japan too. I think you'll be pretty pleased to read the rest of it and how it will align with much of what you're saying. And concerning your other interpretations, I think they are spot on.
>>6433 >never stated directly It may as well be in Decay of the Angel when Toru's birth records show he was born before Ying Chan died.
>>6518 I guess that goes to show how well I retain information after reading. After mentioning that though, you have jogged my memory. This is probably one good reason to reread, but also like >>6404 was saying above, there's really just so much going on that I'm sure it's a good example of one of those series where you realize how much you missed in terms of symbolism, foreshadowing and interpretation the first time through
>>6369 true indeed. Dharmic religions have far more nuance, so that while universal truths are recognized, they can also be multifaceted, having gradations and different contexts. it's quite unlike the Abrahamic concept of absolute Truth, which is pervaded by bigotry. one example of this is the KJV-only movement in Protestant Christianity, which insists that the only correct English translation of the Bible is the 1611 King James Version, to the point of condemning and ridiculing anyone using the wrong translation. it's not enough to insist on one belief system, but on one particular text! I think that captures the all-or-nothing, bigoted attitude of Abrahamic religion. >I think the entire deontological ethics thing is foreign to it too from the little I know correct. Buddhist ethics are utilitarian, not deontological. Abrahamism lays down rules, laws, and customs which you are required to follow, it's full of Thou Shalt and Thou Shalt Not. this often degrades into a hypocritical attitude of obeying the letter of the law and not its spirit, the (((Pharisees))) being a prime example of this. Buddhist ethics are utilitarian, in that they exist for guidance. the point isn't the ethics themselves, it's to improve your habits, character and beliefs so that you eventually internalize the correct path, and no longer need to rely upon written rules. the most common analogy is the raft: you need a raft to cross a river, but you wouldn't drag it around after you've crossed. it serves an important purpose, but once this is fulfilled, it only encumbers you. it's also like training wheels on a bike, which help you learn balance, but come off when you're more experienced. and again, it's like wearing a cast to set a broken bone -- you need a cast so that the bone can heal properly, but once it's healed, the cast is only in the way. using ethics to guide you until they're no longer needed is a far better concept than following arbitrary ethical rules for the sake of doing so.
>>6551 The stuff with the KJV and Protestants are a perfect example, really. Not only do they view things as perfectly black-and-White, they also believe that their particular text (i.e. the Bible) is the one way to properly access God at all, meaning that all philosophical speculation, mysticism and religious experiences of other peoples and cultures is automatically completely false and Satanic. It’s a philosophically untenable position too, and it’s sad to think so many people think that it is through a book alone or by declaring something like “Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior” is the be-all and end-all of spirituality, and all they have to do. Aryan / Dharmic spirituality has always had a focus on intuitive realization of the Truth within, regardless of time or place, or whether it was written in a book, etc. Even in the one book talked about here a few times on Yamakage Shinto we read things about the realizing the “inner Kami” and “receiving the light of Kami”. It’s not far from the same thing. It’s funny to think that if every copy of the Bible was somehow destroyed and memory of Christianity lost, that Christianity would never organically re-emerge again since it is based off of contingent historical facts and personages, while natural religions such as Shinto, or Sanatana Dharma, or Buddhism probably *would* organically re-emerge if every text was destroyed and memory of it was lost. In Buddhism its even said that Buddhism will be forgotten one day, and then Maitreya will re-establish the Dharma. On the topic of ethics as guidance, that is why the varna system in Sanatana Dharma is interesting, because it is seen as a part of a larger system of spiritual evolution in accordance with one’s karma, along with being a part of the Cosmic Order.

>>6839 Pretty cool, Doubt any of them were jovial about it however.
>>6987 You would be surprised. The tenth chapter of the book 'The Nobility of Failure' is a must-read in this retard, as it discusses the history of Kamikaze pilots and the crews that manned the Kaiten suicide submarines. Here are some quotes from Japanese sources that the author included that I always found fascinating: >“The field was pock-marked with bomb holes, but following my hand signals, the planes were skilfully taxied to their starting places without mishap. As I waved my right hand in the signal for taking off, Lieutenant Nakano raised himself in the cockpit and shouted, “Com­mander Nakajima! Commander Nakajima!” >“Fearing that something had gone wrong, I ran to the side of his plane to learn what troubled him. His face was wreathed in smiles as he called, “Thank you, Commander. Thank you very much....” Realizing that enemy raiders might appear at any moment and that there was not an instant to lose, I wordlessly gave the signal for take-off.” >“Nakano’s plane started forward with a roar. As the second plane passed in front of me the engine was revved down momentarily as the pilot screamed, “Commander! Commander!” I flagged him on with a vigorous wave of my arm, but through the din came back his shrieked farewell: “Thank you for choosing me!” I pretended not to hear these messages, but they tore at my heart. The scene repeated itself as each smiling pilot passed my position and I waved on the next: No. 3... No. 4... No. 5—each did the same....” I think they were really able to exemplify Japanese virtues like 'sincerity', acting with selfless dedication for their cause, even if it means their destruction. We can see this all throughout Japanese history. Buddhist sentiments of the impermanence of things and anatta / no-self may have an additional influence.

If there is anything I have learned from the bit of travel that I have done to Europe, it is that /pol/ is more right than you'd think. That came as a surprise to me at the time, but it won't now. >>7366 I have this picture of Yamanaka Shikanosuke that has kind of bluish-green eyes.

>>7390 I would imagine you will have a much better time in Japan if you keep your time in Tokyo to a minimum. I could be wrong as I've never had the opportunity to go there, but it seems like a lot of the globohomo cancer is concentrated in that modern-day Sodom.
Does anyone know if Japan's right has become more skeptical of the covid scenario like is the case with some right-wing movements in Europe? >>7390 The problem with Americans visiting Europe is that they always go to the large cities like Paris, Amsterdam or London. Those places are definitely finished and generally the country's center of all sorts of degenerate practices like prostitution and gang activity. But if you'll go to smaller towns, you'll find that traditional architecture and cultural practices are still mostly retained. That won't last forever, of course. I myself am also interested in visiting Japan someday, at least Tokyo is one of the few major cities in the world that isn't a complete shithole.
>>7396 That seems to be a safe assumption at the very least. Big cities are basically tumors of globohomo that grow on the body of the nation. From them degenerate modern culture pours out into the rest of the country. Tokyo is no exception, except that >>7401 is probably onto something to an extent when he says that it is probably far better than shitholes like Paris or London. I'd probably want to see mainly stuff like nice Shinto shrines, esp. Ise Shrine, Hara Castle where Christcucks were BTFO for the final time in the Shimabara Rebellion and similar things. Most globohomo cities are carbon copies of each other, if one is to go overseas they might as well see what was actually Japan. It's a shame I can't see what early Meiji Japan was like. It would have been comfy. >>7401 >But if you'll go to smaller towns, you'll find that traditional architecture and cultural practices are still mostly retained. That won't last forever, of course. Yes we're lucky there is still some stuff left. If things don't change Japan will be flooded with invaders before long and westernization will march on more. >Does anyone know if Japan's right has become more skeptical of the covid scenario like is the case with some right-wing movements in Europe? I have seen a few videos where people were protesting the virus and vaccines and were shut down by the police. I'm not sure of the exact identity of the protestors though. I was unable to find the video again though, even though I thought it was in our previous Japan thread on Anon Cafe. Happy Science (which is of course pretty right-wing) has been promoting spiritual means to 'cure' the virus through prayer. Unfortunately I haven't seen anything that is akin to what is said on sites like this about Covid beyond the videos of those protestors, who might not have even been right-wing.

>Yamato nadeshiko (やまとなでしこ or 大和撫子) is a Japanese term meaning the "personification of an idealized Japanese woman", or "the epitome of pure, feminine beauty"; poised, decorous, kind, gentle, graceful, humble, patient, virtuous, respectful, benevolent, honest, charitable, faithful. It is a floral metaphor, combining the words Yamato, an ancient name for Japan, and nadeshiko, a delicate frilled pink carnation called Dianthus superbus, whose kanji translate into English as "caressable child".

Some comfy Imperial Japanese songs. The first one is about Japanese kamikaze squadrons. The others I'm not as sure, but they are still good.
Despite the title the book here is originally from the early 1920s. The PDF is not very good as the text is smaller than it could be, but it's readable, at least if one wants to look at certain sections.
Does Shintoism really lack an idea of morality or rumored to reject it? Is there really no such a thing as a duality between "Good" and "Evil"? It seems that Shintoism embraces feminine/darkening actions.
(102.11 KB 640x360 sacred rock shinto.jpg)
>>7902 I find this to be a dubious claim, personally, and I have heard it said in a few different places. I think the issue comes about when we try to force Shinto into the Western idea of religion. The modern Western idea is that religion is something abstracted from everyday life to an extent. Sure, being a member of a religion will undoubtedly change your life, but religion in Japan at the time of the Meiji Restoration was so interwoven with the daily rhythm of Japanese life and culture that they apparently didn't even have a term for religion in the abstract. The term they adopted / coined was shūkyō, but there was still a massive debate among Shintoists whether Shinto was a shūkyō or not, most of them said that it was not a religion in the Western sense, likely because it was like I said, inextricable from the Japanese people and their land. This is originally what it was like in Europe. There was no division between secular and religious or sacred and the profane. It would be quite ridiculous to claim that the Japanese people for centuries had no sense of what was good or evil, and indeed as in Indo-European religions they had a great sense of sacred purity versus pollution (closely aligning with good and evil things). It is funny to read in some of these books claims that Shinto has no good and evil, but then to read on and see claims that reverence for the ancestors must never be neglected, or that egotism is counter to the spirit of Shinto, or that there is a concept of sin (tsumi - which means variously 'wrongdoing' or 'crime') as well. The ethics of Shinto is closely tied together with the innate behavior of the Japanese people, which sees humans as social beings, who ought to live in harmony with the kami, the ancestors and one's own. It might not be written, but it is known. It is a Way. Hope that helps a bit.
>>7903 It sounds to me that Shinto is just merely just a way of living, similar to Indo-Europeans and the Aztec. I still question if Japan really did not have a demiurge. Ok, now here's a different question. Did Japanese Buddhism such as Zen ever teach that there is no such thing as a self or ego like the other sects do?
(2.01 MB 313x750 buddha gif.gif)
>>7910 >It sounds to me that Shinto is just merely just a way of living, similar to Indo-Europeans and the Aztec. It depends what you mean by that. It is undeniably something spiritual and religious by any modern usage of the term though, it's just that it is not seen as something that is ultimately really distinct from everyday life. So in a sense it's a way of living, but it's also more than that. If you look at the book 'The Essence of Shinto' the author discusses some spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation and purification too. > I still question if Japan really did not have a demiurge. In Yamakage Shinto at least Amenominakanushi no Kami is the supreme source and origin of all, from which two other Kami emanated and all other natural phenomenon arose from these three gods. That isn't quite a demiurge though. This is basically the story in the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki too. >Did Japanese Buddhism such as Zen ever teach that there is no such thing as a self or ego like the other sects do? As far as I know, that is why Buddhism is fundamentally broken. Soon after the Buddha's death his disciples completely butchered his teachings, not realizing that most likely he was teaching an apophatic understanding of self, i.e. defining what it was by saying what it is not. This is attested as far back as the Upanishads as an approach for understanding the Self / Atman.

These topics of conversation don’t typically show up on Japanese morning TV and will most certainly raise awareness in Japan.” I am surprised that they've already pushed the discourse this far over there. The upcoming Olympics are going to be one of the worst things to happen to Japan because it will be the first widespread contact that the country will have with this sort of shit and the Japanese still take their cues about what is good/bad from the West as if it's still the Meiji period.

>>8328 Yeah that's what I have been saying too, the Olympics ought to be cancelled, because this is just going to be horrible for Japan. The Olympics are pure globohomo, and with them are going to come a tidal wave of foreigners, degeneracy and propaganda. The only upside to all of this is that Japan apparently has crazy Covid restrictions with stuff like phone-tracking, huge quarantine times and many restrictions on foreigners coming into the country right now, so we can hope that those will soften any potential negative influences at least to an extent. To see Utada Hikaru doing this shit doesn't really surprising seeing as how she was born in Jew York City and is twice-divorced and her mother died of suicide. Looking her up I figured that it would either be something like that or that she would be some Christmas Cake-tier woman. Even funnier about the whole thing is in the one video that she says it in that she is talking with Hideaki Anno immediately afterwards if one goes like ten minutes further into the video: https://youtu.be/7M34VhIGSow?t=141 Feel bad for Japan tbh.

>>8330 In a better world, the Olympics would be great. What exists now is really just a mockery and perversion of the ancient Greek tradition. >i still don't know what this "enby" shit means. It's basically a term for weirdos who don't think they fit into masculine or feminine roles so they identify as neither. Almost exclusively the victims of this category seem to be slightly insecure tomboyish women who are liable to peer-pressure. I feel bad for them
>>8328 >>8329 >>8332 I think I may have posted about this before on the old board but the Olympics are often treated as some sort of mass-orgy by its participants and there is often a rise in single mothers afterwards, wherever it takes place. The organizers always buy massive quantities of condoms. I forgot to even mention that aspect of it. So yeah, it's an absolute shitshow and any self-respecting nation would not want to host the event in this age. But Japan, despite wanting to retain its identity and not being fond of foreigners are still obsessed with tourism, so they're going to do it anyway. >she was born in Jew York City and is twice-divorced Oof, I didn't know that. The fact that she was born in the US already says enough. I didn't look her up and already thought it was weird that someone from Japan would say something so out of place for their current societal standards. These ideas never appear naturally outside of America, they are always transported, be it through the media or someone from America itself. It's the same in Europe. I never watched the rebuilds but someone recently brought it to my attention that the plans of Seele in the original show seem quite relevant today, considering that they want to 'unite' all of humanity into a single blob and there's all the Kabbalistic symbolism. The fact that they and Nerv are part of the UN tops it off.
>>8338 Yup, the Olympics are an excuse for mass hedonism and degeneracy. It's kind of entertaining to look into the news around what is going on with this in Japan right now. The plan was to distribute nearly 200,000 condoms for the 11,000 expected athletes but because of Covid-19 hysteria they are trying to prevent the mass orgy it seems like: <The organisers of the 2020 Olympics have repeatedly vowed to put on a “safe and secure” Games during the coronavirus pandemic. But safe sex – or anything approaching intimacy for that matter – will be forbidden for athletes competing in Tokyo. <The International Olympic Committee this week repeated demands that residents of the Olympic village must observe social distancing guidelines to prevent an outbreak of Covid-19, threatening rule-breakers with a range of penalties, including fines, disqualification or even deportation <Athletes, according to the public health measures outlined in the latest Olympic playbook, must “avoid unnecessary forms of physical contact”. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jun/18/tokyo-2020-olympic-athletes-160000-free-condoms https://archive.fo/WFMYz The Japanese condom industry is apparently very upset. Hopefully the Japs are serious about deportations and disqualifications. The Rebuilds are a complete shitshow and very inferior to the original show, so you're not missing anything. I know that Anno has basically said that they just chose symbolism from Kabbalah and stuff to look cool, but I have some doubts about that. Like you said, SEELE is basically a Jewish cabal who brings about some sort of transhumanist covergence of all mankind into an undifferentiated blob. I've seen people bring up Adam Kadmon or the 'Primordial Man' of Kabbalah too in reference to Human Instrumentality: <Everything in Adam Kadmon is undefined, unified, and simultaneous, superimposed in a single primordial thought, which contradicts the very idea of worlds in the sense that we understand them, as limited being which presupposes separation and division. Subjectively, in terms of our awareness of G‑d, the world of Adam Kadmon parallels the highest source of consciousness in man. It is the awareness of total unity with the Infinite Light. https://www.chabad.org/kabbalah/article_cdo/aid/380321/jewish/Chaos-and-the-Primordial.htm <The soul of Adam HaRishon ("the first man") was the supreme essence of mankind. It contained within it all subsequent souls. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Kadmon Basically SEELE was engaging in Tikkun Olam: <However, because the ultimate purpose of creation is not to remain in a state of separation and diversity but rather to achieve unity and harmony, the separateness brought about by the shattering of Tohu (chaos) is rectified in Tikun, meaning "rectification", "restitution", or "reformation". Tikun signifies the syntheses and re-unification of the diversity and fragmentation introduced by the shattering of the vessels of Tohu. The nature and specifics of the rectification that takes place in Tikun will be discussed more fully below. These sorts of themes pop up a lot in fiction. I've never played the games myself, but from my understanding the Dead Space games also feature some sort of cult where the goal is to become 'whole' and merge into a flesh mass and attain eternal life.

They basically banned casual sex in the UK to prevent the spread of Covid as well. While we're still speaking of the Olympics, there was not too long ago some news about how the Olympic committee banned the athletes from taking the knee (to out their support for BLM). >I know that Anno has basically said that they just chose symbolism from Kabbalah and stuff to look cool, but I have some doubts about that Me too, Anno seems like an intelligent person who is just too insecure/self-hating to talk at length about the true meaning of Eva. But I have also seen other examples of Japanese creators not wanting to explain the meaning of their works so maybe that's also a bit of a cultural thing. >I've seen people bring up Adam Kadmon or the 'Primordial Man' of Kabbalah too in reference to Human Instrumentality I remember reading that the HIP was similar to some concept of Kabbalah but couldn't remember what the exact term was, thank you for that. Overall, an interesting read. >Makes me think if this is some sort of predictive programming That or people with similar worldviews trying to warn us about the elites in subtle ways. I remember seeing some /v/ screencap about a Japanese game where the villain was an evil entity that was literally Yawheh and they had to censor it in the west because of muh antisemitism. I couldn't find the name of the game but while trying to look for it, I found out the main antagonist of a famous Japanese video-games series (Shin Megami Tensei) is also Yawheh. https://villains.fandom.com/wiki/YHVH_(Shin_Megami_Tensei) >YHVH's actions are a sign of something wrong with the universe itself. >YHVH is often equated with God.

I've noticed that the Japanese like to use this sort of language when referring to Jesus historically, I think there is a similar quote in here >>6238 that I pulled from a book on the Tokugawa Era and Christianity. I sensed a bit of Meiji Era self-hatred in the guy though, especially in how he thought that their self-isolation period was bad or how it would be better if Japanese males were servants to their wives too. Some of the Meiji elites just worshiped everything about the West, and it's good that they were never allowed full reign by the more traditionally-minded people of the time. Glad that later in the Taisho Era the right-wingers were killing, bombing and assassinating liberal government members constantly. >YHVH Kek it looks like every time his name comes up in dialogue it is obscured as well in accordance with how the Jews don't say 'God' but replace it with something like HaShem.

I am currently going through Andrew Gordon's A Modern History of Japan. Horrible cover but the contents are interesting and it's an easy book to read through. There's only so much you can read on this topic until a lot starts seeming familiar but I did learn a lot about the flaws of the Tokugawa system, which disproves the claim that the Meiji revolution was merely a reaction to western presence and was actually something that had been brewing for decades prior but had yet to take a clear form. The main issues with the Tokugawa regime prior to its downfall were very similar to any late-stage civilization; government officials were no longer selected based on talent and solely on nepotism, declining morality, the 'new religiosity' that Spengler talked of, economic prosperity for a minority while the poor were literally starving, population decline. As you can see from pics related, Japan could have easily suffered a similar fate to Rome if it hadn't been for the ban on Christianity. I had already been made aware of this in the past but the Japanese of this time did not really consider themselves to be Japanese but rather identified with the regions they lived in, which often functioned as semi-autonomous states with their own currencies and border control. >>8357 > I think there is a similar quote in here >>6238 that I pulled from a book on the Tokugawa Era and Christianity Yes, it reminded me of that as well. >Some of the Meiji elites just worshiped everything about the West, and it's good that they were never allowed full reign by the more traditionally-minded people of the time They believed that the only way to become as scientifically and militarily advanced as the west was to adopt absolutely every aspect of their societies. It's strange though, that he observed the importance of religion in the social order of the west but did not come to think of adopting that aspect of theirs.

>>8415 Luckily it seems like thanks to National Learning and its intellectuals like Norinaga, Hirata, Aizawa and others knowledge of the danger of Christianity and many aspects of the West were kept alive within the highest aspects of Japaese society, and that the progressive Meiji elite were kept in check a bit due to this, probably. Of course not everything they did was necessarily bad though, like rapidly setting up a school system and doing away with the classes and making a centralized army of the people. I like the samurai and their whole ethos but Japan never would have established an empire based on samurai alone. I'm sure it's in the book you're reading but all of those issues are why they got people like Oshio Heihachiro and the like trying to rising up against the government because people were starving and basically fucked. I think he was mentioned in Runaway Horses as a prime example of the idea of sincerity and uniting thought and action. Regarding that Kurozumi guy at the bottom of the second pic, he is somewhat interesting. I read a book on his religion a while back. It combines a lot of elements of Neo-Confucianism and Shinto. Amaterasu is the creator of the universe and the individual soul is a microcosm of the universal soul. It relies a lot of faith healings.

Here's a paper on Japanese immigrants to Brazil and Catholicism. The most interesting part is the pre-WWII and immediately post-WWII parts. Basically Brazil during the 1930s began to push very hard a melting-pot ideology, and looked favorably on racial mixture and assimilation. The Japanese were mostly all monolingual, had their own schools, institutions and the like and lived in more rural areas, and did not take well to this. With the war, the Brazilian government gradually began to close down Japanese schools, prohibit the Japanese language and prohibit them from using banks and from doing other economic activities. In 1942 an organization called Shindo Renmei (League of the Way of Emperors' Subjects) was formed which carried out resistance against the Brazilians and later punished and even killed those after the war that promoted the view that Japan had lost the war. Immediately after the war there were a large amount of people who apparently believed that Japan had conquered the entire world and that Japanese ships were about to arrive on the Brazilian coast to come get them. Apparently about half of Japanese Brazilians participated directly or contributed financially to Shindo Renemi, and 30,000 Japanese were interrogated and arrested in this period, and forced to desecrate photos of the emperor the flag of Japan. Many of the defeatist Japanese later defected to Catholicism and were preyed on by missionaries of various kinds, and abandoned the way of their people.

Even if they are full-blooded Japanese, they identify as Brazilian and the ones who move to Japan end up preferring to speak in Portuguese over Japanese. I really do think religion plays a major role in this, a religion that has such a strong connection to ethnicity and culture as Shinto would have given them a stronger Japanese identity.
>>8433 >I'm sure it's in the book you're reading but all of those issues are why they got people like Oshio Heihachiro and the like trying to rising up against the government because people were starving and basically fucked. I think he was mentioned in Runaway Horses as a prime example of the idea of sincerity and uniting thought and action. Yes, he is briefly mentioned. The author also mentioned that these figures and events would provide inspiration for later nationalists. >I read a book on his religion a while back Interesting, care to spoonfeed the title?

>>8593 >Interesting, care to spoonfeed the title? Pic related. As far as I'm aware it's not online, though. The title is slightly misleading, though. Other pre-WWII new religions are only dealt with in sketch, really, and Kurozumikyo the only one really filled in lots of detail. The first chapter does go over a lot of the commonalities in the worldview of the first wave of new religions of Japan though, such as them being laity-centric, the idea of the self being somehow 'extended' into society at large, and the lesser importance of ritual purity and impurity, which served to give women a bigger place in these religions. Looking at this video of them you can really see how similar they look to normal Shinto from an outsider's perspective: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryjKnT3nfUM
>>8592 I've gotta say, I really relate to Aizawa's general state of thought in a lot of these excerpts kek. And that is what I like to see, because it shows that many of our responses to various issues (Christianity, etc) have been grasped by very different people in very different places and cultures. He's definitely closer to the fascist mindset than one would think - parties and the division they bring aren't the solution, the people need leadership and and a common bond to unite them. Very fascistic. From reading 'Japan's Holy War', it's very clear that this sort of thought came naturally to the Japanese of the 19th and early 20th centuries. >I really do think religion plays a major role in this, a religion that has such a strong connection to ethnicity and culture as Shinto would have given them a stronger Japanese identity. No doubt. I'll be sure to check out the videos when I have a bit more time. Especially with Shinto, as we've already said here and in other threads, it is much more 'interwoven' with the rhythm of traditional Japanese life, especially with the veneration of the ancestors and the like. Once that is broken, you can easily become a rootless cosmopolitan, especially in a foreign land like Brazil, which is basically a byword for race mixing. The so-called 'democracy of the dead' that G.K. Chesterton spoke of, is something really missing in the West that the East still understands to an extent: <“Tradition means giving a vote to most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead…Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. All democrats object to men being disqualified by the accident of birth; tradition objects to their being disqualified by the accident of death.

Most people think of Kita Ikki as sort of the 'Japanese face of fascism' but of course when one looks into him it's clear that he was a major cuck compared to some other figures of 1920s-40s in Japan. A better example of a Japanese fascist is Kanokogi Kazunobu (鹿子木員信). I can't post the PDF because I am accessing it through a university thing and it posts my IP on the bottom, sadly it is not on sci-hub Though Kanokogi was born as a Christian, held pacifistic ideals and would even later attain a bachelor of divinity at a seminary in the United States, he gradually became disgusted at liberalism, individualism, capitalism and much of modernity, including Christianity, as a result of his experiences in America. For the rest of his life he would be an activist against degeneracy, and would advocate for various sorts of Platonic conceptions of the state, Pan-Asianism, Social Darwinism, fascism and the divinity of the Japanese emperor. After WWI ended he began to be featured in Japanese newspapers warning against the degeneration of Japan, and proclaimed things such as the survival of the fittest being the universal law. War, according to Kanokogi, was a positive factor in human hsitory that represented "nobility, purity, and progress" and purged mankind of "all elements that are weak, corrupt, or negative". War "always extinguishes the weak, the dishonest, and shallow, in other words all those who are evil, while ensuring that the noble, the strong, the straight, and the honest, in other words those who are good, prosper." War is "the sword of righteousness and the scourge of God that [brings about] improvement"; the people must always welcome war as a divine test, because "only nations that possess a strong fighting spirit have the right to exist." In the late 1920s he would study in German universities ideas such as the organic theory of the state, and would become a huge fan of Adolf Hitler. He was known in the late 30s for ending many of his speeches with 'Heil Hitler'. Upon returning to Japan in 1930 from German, he would found Aikoku Kinrōtō (Patriotic Workers' Party) off of the model of the NSDAP. Aikoku Kinrōtō collapsed within a year of being founded though due to various issues. It was considered to be the first conscious effort in Japan to imitate a European fascist party though. Then in 1933 he would help found the Dai Ajia Kyōkai (Greater Asian Association) with members of the defunct Aikoku Kinrōtō and many prominent Japanese generals, and with two future prime ministers of Japan. The goal of the association was to "to promote the harmony and fusion of the [Japanese] Empire and Asian countries, and the introduction and propagation of [Japans] imperial culture in those countries". The Emperor was the embodiment of the Fuehrerprinzip / Leadership Principle. Japan was said to be at an advantage compared to Western countries because they already had a guy on the throne to lead with the dedication of the masses. Japanese 'totalitarianism' was seen as part of the natural evolution of the Japanese kokutai. Kanokogi would also draw greatly on Plato's Republic and the state depicted in there as the ideal model of society, saying that "unless political power and philosophy are combined to form one monolithic whole, the ideal of the state will not be realized". During the war he eventually quit his post at the university and dedicated himself full time to propagandizing his views, and was in great demand. He was arrested as a Class A warcriminal by the (((Allies))) after the war, and was let go on medical grounds soon after and died in 1949. Overall based/10. A shorter summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanokogi_Kazunobu The paper I got the info from: https://www.jstor.org/stable/43864798

That's totally on me, I saw the part saying that he had a Christian mother and was influenced by her, but I was mainly concerned with the parts of the paper that had info on views that would be interesting to the thread rather than anything else. Important to read carefully. I guess it would be said better that he grew up in a very Christianized environment due to his mother, and eventually identified as a Christian himself before moving sharply away from such views.

>>8985 >I think these religions were more of an attempt to reshape the fractured Shinto traditions into a more organized religion, rather than create something new. Yeah, that seems accurate. In the book I was showing you in the other post it even says that Kurozumikyō takes part in shrine festivities and the like in Okayama, and that the author presumed that most of the people there would have no idea that this group was technically part of a 'New Religion'. It exists pretty firmly under the umbrella of Sect Shinto, as do most of the New Religions prior to WWII that I am aware of. Most of the insanity came in the second wave like with Aum Shinrikyō kek. <If today we establish this equality between the sexes in all aspects of life, we shall reach the point where the men will strive to oppress the women while the women attempt to oppress the men... In sum the word "rights" includes evil. This really goes to show how much different of a mindset the Japanese of this time had. The feminist historical myth pushed onto us in the West would have us think that women have for the entirety of history been just submissive slaves to their husbands, forced into such a position unwillingly. This Sakatani Shiroshi man here evidently sees it as a sort of complementary relationship rather than one of oppression, which I also would argue for. <Buddhists Sometimes I wonder how modern """Buddhists"""" cope with things like this. In almost every example I have seen from an Asian country, the Buddhist establishment is extremely reactionary and nationalistic. I guess that's what happens when one doesn't read Buddhism through a Judeo-Christian lens...

>>9394 Most humans are just arrogant. This becomes extremely obvious in a late-stage degenerate civilization such as our own. In times like this the material prosperity (which is actually a cause of great misery) all goes straight to their head. The collective ego of this civilization balloons out of control. Even though they are wallowing in degeneracy, they somehow think that they are the best and brightest of civilizations and cultures yet. They think they can avoid the tragedies of the past and ignore all of the lessons of history. Of course their civilization decays and implodes before long. When society becomes gynocentric, as late-stage ancient Europe did, we know that it was already in a terminal position. Accordingly, I give our current global civilization about 200 years before it completely collapses, and I could point early than that even, possibly. > I wouldn't even mind them giving racial attacks towards Whites, especially if they're rude and disrespectful.

Reminds me of that part about antidepressants as a tool of behavior modification from Kaczynski's manifesto. >Imagine a society that subjects people to conditions that make them terribly unhappy, then gives them drugs to take away their unhappiness. >Instead of removing the conditions that make people depressed, modern society gives them antidepressant drugs. In effect, antidepres- sants are a means of modifying an individual's internal state in such a way as to enable him to tolerate social conditions that he would otherwise find intolerable. Really goes to how much these companies really benefit from people being weak, miserable and dependent.
>>9508 Yeah, Kaczynski is hitting the nail on her head here. R.D. Laing is another good figure to mention on this topic, saying that some disorders are not the result of biological or psychological problems but are reactions to the environment (social, familial or material, etc). If one looks at how a lot of these so-called 'disorders' are defined, it is usually just a combination of certain ways of thinking, behaviors and beliefs. It's inherently subjective for the most part. Even if we look at the article for mental disorders on Kikepedia it says that they are often defined in relation to 'social context', and also that 'Cultural and religious beliefs, as well as social norms, should be taken into account when making a diagnosis' —if these are to be taken in account, does that mean being born in one culture will not make certain behaviors or ways of thinking a mental illness? Stuff like this shows how retarded psychiatry really is, just like other meme sciences such as sociology. Some person would be a shaman a thousand years ago is pumped full of drugs and lives in a catatonic state today. Mental disorder = can't fit into the technological clownworld.

Pics related are from another 1913 article I dug up. Though from my interactions with Japanese people over time I have felt that they are much closer in behavior to Whites than any other race I have experience interacting with, anything more than the 'honorary Aryan' claim is absurd as far as I'm concerned. They're their own people at the end of the day, even if Ainu may be distantly related to Caucasians.
>>10096 >>10097 Would you allow Japs into a hypothetical all-White community? I can understand thinking of them as spiritual or honorary Aryans, and some of their ancestors may even have been biological Aryans. That said, it seems somewhat disingenuous to refer to Japs as White.

It easily manifests in supergook groups in China (animal torture, skinning). The reason nips are on top of all Asians is because there's a very tenuous and distant remnant of some admixture with a greater blood, that their oldest religion shows definitely signs that elements were implanted into their own culture for their own good, and that during the Meiji era they got a massive technological upgrade provided by something like 500 Whites, which is a day that is still celebrated (as it was done a few years ago). >>4944 Cultivated honne and tatamae is peak judaism, artificial schizophrenia forced onto a population to survive against an alien influence.

>>10585 >Technically, a dash of euhemerism might have allowed for a form of nationalist shintoized Buddhism, essentially having this wise men gaining a rank and place alongside Japanese gods. There'd really be no real need for euhemerism, actually. The Siddharta Gautama himself, of course, was just a man who reached a state of spiritual enlightenment, becoming more than human in the process. Technically, any living-entity could become a buddha as I understand it (though not necessarily in this life). Like has already been said in this thread, many common people were seemingly completely unaware of a division between Buddhism and Shinto, and temples were often shared between the two in many places until the Meiji Restoration. There were several theories which were intended to explain the exact relationship between the buddhas the the kami. When Buddhism was first introduced into Japan, the buddhas were labeled as banshin or 'foreign gods', but eventually there were introduced theories like that of the honji-suijaku, where kami were considered the suijaku (provisional manifestation or "manifest trace") of buddhas, while buddhas were the honji ("original ground") of the kami. Some people maintained that it was the opposite, proposing the shinpon-butsujaku theory, where the kami were viewed as the original ground or source, and the buddhas as the provisional manifestation. Either way, many thinkers regarded the kami and the buddhas as indivisible in some way. >It's quite easy once one sees the affinity between Buddhism and certain tenets of Christianity to understand why a staunch pagan would oppose both on similar grounds. I really don't see much affinity, to be honest. I can understand why some hardcore Shintoists might view Buddhism as a foreign religion infecting Japan, but even when we compare the behaviors of Buddhists and Christians, we see that they are really night and day. All throughout Asia, Buddhism survives in close connection with traditional religious practices, not eradicating opposition as does Christianity. I feel like most Buddhists throughout history have been just focused on getting good rebirths by giving to monks and getting blessings and funerals from them, more than anything too. >Christianity might have been able to be made pro-European if the Semitic elements weren't so prevalent. You get that idea in Positive Christianity, the plan for a 5th Gospel (in fact, just the one accepted Gospel, largely influenced by Chamberlain's writings) and Serrano's priest friend who pushed for the Nietzschean Krystos. It's not a useless exercise either because we should really consider having a plan for soft-converting Christians into a new branch that would be under pagan control. I don't even think a fifth gospel could save Christianity, to be quite honest. Half of their holy book is basically Jewish history and genocides against the surrounding goyim, and even this can hardly be thrown out, because it is full of texts that Christians believe are directly prophesizing the coming of Jesus (Isaiah 53, Daniel 7, etc) and the reasons behind their 'New Covenant'. And the Gospels themselves preach a morality that might work for a yogi or a monk, but not a society. Unlike with Vedic religion, there is hierarchical system of different roles for priests, warriors, farmers / merchants, and workers. This is the great strength of Vedic religion, in that it integrates politics, spirituality, wordly and spiritual concerns, all into one, in a way that Christianity just doesn't. From reading the Gospels and the Pauline epistles, it is clear they are expecting an imminent end of the world, and that therefore one should resist evil, obey the governing authorities and abstain from everything 'worldly' because it is under the dominion of Satan. These many problems aside, I don't even think Christians would accept a new Gospel, unfortunately. They won't even accept demonstrably old Gospels like Thomas that have been discovered over time. Not to mention ones like Judas (which puts a whole new spin on things). It's worth trying to win Christians over some way, but I just can't see Christianity as anything other than broken beyond repair.

It can be a bit jarring at first to watch too because it was made during that time in the 2000s where anime characters had eyes so large they almost looked insectoid. I got used to it pretty quickly, though. >>10585 >Isn't that show basically girl power before it became a thing in the US?

>>10584 >In the mind of a Westerner that's very different from what exists in Japan. That was a term used for any White dude who was into Japanese culture because it was defo less woke, especially before the new millennium. >It was fun, poetic, manly & trad. Women were women, enjoyable. Height of all ironies, an occupied country defeated in WWII, in order to sell in the West, had to show characters as White with big eyes. This is nonsense, because anime and otaku culture has always been degenerate. There's has been and still is LGBT-tier medias and content within both manga and animes that were marketed towards mainly women. It sounds to me that you refuse to give being a consumerist who enjoys a media and industry that is heavily influenced by liberalism. Give it up and focus on the things that are more worthwhile and do not make your life a drag.
>>10594 Anime itself is a very mixed bag. For everyone one or two good shows, there are dozens that are just awful and unimaginative. It depends what one watches, especially when you talk about degenerate themes. Obviously some of it is going to have some degenerate aspects since the Japanese character and mind is in some ways more grotesque than that of the White man. Nowadays some aspects like the way women are depicted are very appealing to Whites because of how the Jews depict women in mainstream media and how the women of our society increasingly behave. Anyone who devotes an inordinate amount of time to consuming media has a problem though, I’d agree.

>>10618 Non Non Biyori was great. Used that to drift to sleep for a week or so. There are some very nice nature scenes in it. Only thing I didn't really like was the implicit sexualization. They draw attention to the main character having big tits when she's 10, and she has a lesbian crush on an older girl who looks younger. They also had a short subplot on an episode about the older girl potentially being abducted. There was also a scene with the same girl needlessly arching her back and sticking her ass out while taking off a layer of clothing over her swimsuit. That's all the bad shit I can remember about it and it is otherwise relaxing as you say.
>>10588 >I feel like the main reason people watch magical girl anime in general is not because of girl power themes, but because they like cute little girls battling monsters and each other with magic and shit while in big frilly dresses Yes, it is very different from Western conceptions of 'girl power'. Western attempts at it are basically just representations of women who are trying to act like men (and poorly, at that). They are macho and unappealing, and clearly the result of feminist agendas. Magical girls and other types are very different. They don't even have a real-life counterpart. They're purely fictional.

>>10587 >There'd really be no real need for euhemerism, actually. Let's not lose sight of the context. For some reason, perhaps due to miscommunication, bias or else, the Japanese seems to have considered Buddhism to be a channel for a new set of divinities. This is why I wondered if a solution would have been to avoid the open confrontation and settle with a system where the illuminated humans can become gods themselves. Fiir our own interests this process isn't without usefulness because we can rationalize pagan gods to be greater minds, and suspecting the Shinto to have a much greater Aryan influence built into it than Buddhism I can easily imagine the former being much more in tune in the living world, asking the people to take a proactive stance. Therefore, where I'd put more emphasis on the validity of the shinpon-butsujaku, the honji- system could progressively graft itself, but only as exceptional cases not disputing the rank and superiority of the original gods, and above all under a strict regimen of rules dictated by the collected and relatively centralized later Shinto system which is in several ways similar to the paganism we knew of before Rome brought Mithras and then Jesus. >I really don't see much affinity, to be honest. Buddhism at its core is fundamentally anti-life and rejects the world as quite a terrible place to be in retrospect. However, because it doesn't try to force onto people both a different blatant and petulant god and its associated strange lore and tales, and since it somewhat seems to adopt a detached outlook on life, it does indeed take much more resolve to fight against it, perhaps requiring a better grip on philosophy of life and a better comprehension of what it truly is to be. Which is what makes Buddhism more insidious because at least Christianity is so alien that it had to use both violence and duplicity to be accepted (which is again very jewish in style). Then, once you understand the core of Buddhism and perceive the immediate effect it has on the relevance of the old gods, you find even more reasons to oppose it. Not because Buddhism would provide a new way to obtain what entities of all shapes and powers could previously offer, but because Buddhism can easily throw at the noblest of all men bound to their soil and ancient beliefs the accusation of being enthralled by the world's riches, and by the same token accuse the kami of being deceivers, because they never provide a proper view of reality nor any reasoning to escape the logic of the entrapment people suffer in, but seem to have no honest intent or at least appear wholly unable to even provide the smallest key out this prison, and keep such noble men pandering to them when per this swinging exchange of respects, these spirits merely keep people addicted to existence as is. Buddhism asserts the fact of a life of lament of duress, to which it objects by the grace of salvation, whereas the people of the kami would never ever begin to view their world as a flawed construct to begin with. With this alone, in fact, one can see the seeds of the current nightmare we live in, because anything pertaining to a realm that is good and proper is now declared an illusory pit of eternal torment, sidetracking the need of a strategy of terror based on threatening the good men with being locked in a place called Hell with a finer one that presents the world as a deplorable realm in its own right. Thus the pagan worldview becomes a falsity of deceiving comfort, a spiritual construct, just as race today is but a social construct. >I don't even think a fifth gospel could save Christianity, to be quite honest. I agree but that was the plan back then to attract Christians to the new religion the Third Reich was trying to create. I have no doubts about the successive forced evolutionary steps the Christians would have been pushed through so that they would once totally dismiss Old and New Testaments altogether, only keeping some relevant and acceptable aphorisms and the sacraments. Thus would Christianity finally die. >This is the great strength of Vedic religion, in that it integrates politics, spirituality, wordly and spiritual concerns Islam has all this too. It's religion that has impressed many a right-winger. >I don't even think Christians would accept a new Gospel, unfortunately. They won't even accept demonstrably old Gospels like Thomas that have been discovered over time. Obviously not if asked nicely, but the way Christianity must be dismantled has to mirror the way it was foisted upon Europeans. In National Socialist Germany a significant amount of children were being educated according to pagan values, although the process was perhaps too hasty and perhaps too artificial to work. >I just can't see Christianity as anything other than broken beyond repair. Most certainly.
>>10594 >anime and otaku culture has always been degenerate Always? No, that is nonsense and even more when the imports were filtered according to Western needs, which initially weren't that pozzed. Besides when I talked about the Westernized "otaku" it was in reference to a tagging quite different from the Japanese type that paved the way for soymen or MGTOW. Otaku was a lose term erroneously used for Western boys who were customers of that type of entertainment when back then, it mixed good themes, heterosexual sexiness and veiled acceptable eroticism, and overall good optics. >>10609 >pics In the first one I notice Greeks being grouped with Jews and Christians, which I find understandable as far as classical Greece is concerned. The behavior of the Gods towards the people was more than questionable in a number of ways and who would be so disingenuous as to deny the so strong similarity between a jealous God retaining the privilege of knowledge for himself, which brings another compassionate God to take it by force to share it with the humans, yet pay the price for such treason, and a God who punishes man and woman for even daring eating of the fruit of knowledge? In the second one, the Japanese were perhaps ironically ignorant of their own strength, not one necessarily of pure originality, but one of a great ability for synthesis and assimilation. When wanting to reject the Western modern world, they would go as far as repel even what many Japanese would consider genuinely good and fulfilling, simply because it came from afar. Japan could simply not go back, it had evolved and had to. And what to think of in the first picture when they oppose the Anglo-Saxon corrupting capitalism to their idealized classless society, although these are perhaps just the author's words? >video Thank you for it but I will obviously not watch it. >>10631 Yeah, it's largely ridiculous and the choice of GIFs by >>10619 and >>10623 is symptomatic. That's exactly the kind of shows watched by people like the bearded woman we see in the first picture of the Covid Thread 2's OP. Fortunately if you're aware of these issues you also know what to look for to satiate your need for better material. It does exist and there definitely are studios, authors and illustrators who couldn't give two shits about being PC. I think /pol/ has a shorter thread that could be of help in this. >>10662 As much as I'd wish to leave the anime derailing outside of this thread, does the setting of young girls being engaged in combat even make sense? Are they rationalizing it in a very bleak and realistic way or is it just completely gratuitous and thus just another variant of lolislurp material? We're saturated with fighting women (West) or lolis (East). That looks BS either way you slice it. >>10665 I wonder how they tackled this because 1800 was a pretty tumultuous period for France and Paris overall as Napoleon was barely entering the political field then.
>>10702 >does the setting of young girls being engaged in combat even make sense? When we see stuff like magical girls and other shit, I'm not sure it's supposed to make sense, to be honest. But with the anime in question, it's not trying to be any sort of gritty war anime, because it's not a war anime. There's not even any combat in that particular anime. The war is desolate, destroyed and empty, and the two characters just drive around in their vehicle and wander around destroyed abandon places. The one girl carries the gun, but I don't think it's really ever used except for a handful of times, and there are hardly an humans in the show since they're all dead as far as I could gather. It's just comfy apocalyptic slice-of-life of two girls traveling around. With moe blob art style.
>>10701 >settle with a system where the illuminated humans can become gods themselves. I believe this is already not incompatible with either religion, actually. Especially with the term 'kami', it appears to be a very polysemous term. For some examples of this in Shinto, 2,466,532 men, women and children are enshrined as kami at Yasukuni shrine. There are also men such as Sugawara no Michizane, better known now as Tenjin since he was deified as a kami after his death. He is today the patron deity of learning and scholars (among other things). Regarding Japanese people who are considered buddhas or bodhisattvas, I am not aware of any. There must be, but I have not explored this area much. It is somewhat difficult for me to outright condemn Buddhism as 'anti-life'. I'm not a big fan of this phrase, actually, because it is embedded with a lot of implicit assumptions about the nature of reality, i.e. there are no realms after death, this life here and now is the only one that matters, etc. If any of these are true, the phrase 'anti-life' immediately loses much of the punch it might have otherwise held, for example if materialism is true. I don't know if they would describe life as 'terrible', but they would say that it is in some way inherently unsatisfactory, and the main cause of this is said to be craving for things in what is an impermanent and constantly-changing world. Maybe it is just me, but I see a lot of truth in this statement, so maybe I am just blinded here (but I am not a Buddhist, just to be clear, I think Buddhism has a lot of problems). The world is not inherently evil in the way that we see in religions like gnosticism or Manicheanism, for example. I believe there is even at least one notable Buddhist philosopher or school who claims that this world of samsara is in reality non-different from Nirvana. When it comes to the gods, I guess the question would have to be if Buddhism really had any effect on the indigenous gods of the Japanese people. We know that the idea of the divine Emperor which comes from Shinto seems to never have repudiated, and indeed the worshipers of the kami and buddhas seem to have retained full faith in the Emperor even into the last century. The only people that actually seem to be practicing Buddhism in pre-modern times are monks and nuns, which made up a slither of the population, while everyone else focused on staying in the good favor of the kami and buddhas, and maybe getting a better rebirth, or perhaps born in a Pure Land after death, where people can concentrate on reaching enlightenment and practicing the Dhamma. A religion which denies these worldly aspects or the laity will never get mass-appeal and will likely die off in time. I will say though, we can find lots of world-lamenting stuff in European pagan writings as well. >Islam has all this too. It's religion that has impressed many a right-winger. Yes, that is one positive side. I think it outdoes even Islam in some respects though. Islam is more 'neat' though, in the sense that it is more systematic while Vedic religion sometimes is scatterbrained due to having so many massive texts and figures in it.

>>10702 >In the first one I notice Greeks being grouped with Jews and Christians, which I find understandable as far as classical Greece is concerned I am not sure I agree. I have noticed strong similarities between the religious practices of the ancient Greeks and Romans on one hand and the Japanese on the other hand. I have never really researched the topic but it's just little things I noticed here and there. Like reading in Spengler's book that the Romans would wrap around ritual ropes around sacred trees, just like the Japanese still do. Or the similarities between numen and kami. The Indo-Aryan serpent slayer myth also appears in Japanese mythology in the form of the story about Yamata no Orochi. >1800 was a pretty tumultuous period for France and Paris overall as Napoleon was barely entering the political field then I said late 1800s.

>>10815 >It would be a complex affair to come up with a good system that allow all of this: a path of the heroic Overman and eternal struggler who aspires to become a God, a path of the ascetic who wants out but through some form of philosophically passive and satisfying maneuver*, and a path of the commoner who just wants to have a honest life and then return to some kind of big river with ancestors and be at peace forever. No hating of the world, no inherent evilness in it. Not to be overly redundant, but this is the Vedic Aryan way in its purest form. Traditionally there has been a division of life into four castes and four stages of life. The earliest stage of life (for males) is that of a celibate student. This lasts until one is around eighteen for most. They learn all of the basics that they need to know, especially in regards to spiritual matters. This is only for the three Aryan castes, not Shudras. After this stage, a young man becomes a householder. He gets married, has children and attends to worldly duties in correspondence with his caste (he might become a warrior, or a government official if he is in the warrior caste, or he may become a temple priest if he is in the priestly caste, but will still marry and the like). Eventually towards the end of ones life, one was supposed to gradually distance themselves from worldly matters in the latest two stages, and re-devote themselves wholeheartedly and more strictly to spiritual matters, asceticism and the like. The children will be adults and the daughters married off by this point, and worldly affairs will be responsibly placed in the hands of the younger generations after the elderly have done their duties and advanced to the next stage. But even then, I am sure that following this system to the letter was always more frequent in the higher castes, with the lower Aryan castes following it less strictly (think: farmers and merchants, etc), but still focusing a bit more on these matters. The lowest non-Aryan caste has their own ways, but in general they are just meant to serve as labor for the full-fledged Aryans. They're just not very intellectual and are simple people. A few might be world-denying ascetics their entire lives, but most would not. Not everyone would seek liberation. Most would probably join the ancestors on death, or seek to reincarnate back into their family, or to get a rebirth in a higher realm as a god or other powerful divine being. It just makes a lot of sense to me, as it seems to encompass and balance everything nicely. Liberation is only one object of human pursuit, of which there are four, Dharma (virtuous behavior in accord with Natural Law), Artha (economic prosperity), Kama (love or pleasure, but in accordance with Natural Law) and Moksha (liberation). Aspects of this can be found in all non-Abrahamic civilizations in various forms. It is so superior to Abrahamic ideas that I am blown away. Interestingly, even Japan had four castes and untouchables, this was the shinōkōshō system (though slightly differently organized), and all Indo-European societies were divided into three or four different castes or classes. I think this full-fledged Vedic system was once common worldwide in the distant past, at least among the Aryans.

>>10855 > Obviously the older one gets, the easier it is to sit down and go philosophical but then it's more a matter of fact than a really brave decision taken against all odds. For sure. I think this is part of what is somewhat interesting about the idea, is that the system doesn't really seek to bend reality to itself, but instead the system is an interpretation and slight formalization of the natural stages of a person's life. Of course, some people probably would never go through with the whole thing and would remain at a given stage, but in general it is a very natural progression over the course of one's life, especially for the average person. I think it is best viewed as an ideal though, of course, it would be interesting to see how a society would function that had really internalized these values or values similar to that and to see how it functioned.

We may really need to accept the idea that we're not cucking if we find acceptable yet lone and isolated mothers of still relatively sane and young White children and decide to take them with us.

>>13158 It really depends on the situation. I find the idea of dating or marrying a woman with children already to be very distasteful, but maybe if her husband had died and the children were relatively young I would consider it. The main issue is whether the woman is now a single mother because she is a roastie, or because there's an actual reason that this ended up happening. If it would prevent some White children from being raised by a single mother too it might offset the bad effects. Probably an unpopular opinion though
