ok. Japan's textbooks are pretty glossy. By glossy, I mean they are shit when it comes to atrocities committed. Also, a public debate about comfort women was CENSORED by the media. A lot of Japs in power today are directly connected with the wartime power elite. And they should just all die.
Now, America isn't much better. Generally speaking, Americans are pretty fucking clueless when it comes to the skeletons in the closet. CIA's involvement in South America, Tibet, Iraq, Iran...CIA basically had shit everywhere, and the Clandestine Services has no effective mandate over modus operantis.
BUT, in America, there are enough factions struggling for attention that, if you had a message, you probably could get it out.
In Japan...you're just fucked.
