Is Reality negotiable?

トランプ誕生の原因についての議論は活発だけど、デリダの脱構築のせいにした議論は初めて読んだw https://www.wsj.com/articles/do-we-still-want-the-west-1487635725 …


The United States has elected as president a man who has repeatedly voiced his disdain for NATO, the World Trade Organization and other institutions of the Western-led world order. He publicly calls the press “an enemy of the American people” and conjures conspiracy theories about voter fraud whose only purpose is to lend credence to his claim that the system is rigged. He is our first post-rational president, whose approach to questions of fact recalls the deconstructionism of the late Jacques Derrida: There are no truths; reality is negotiable.



デリダの脱構築が、トランプ誕生の原因と言っているわけでもないし、誕生を脱構築のせいにしているわけでもない。

トランプの手法は、recalls the deconstructionism デリダの脱構築を彷彿とさせる、ということだろうーーそれはその通りだと思うし、以前、私も指摘したことがある。

デリダは真実はない、と言っているわけではないが、ポストモダンが、実用性や有意義な物語のほうを重視して、真実や実在の概念をどうでもいいか、少なくとも、乗り越えようとしていたのはたしかで、post modern, post-truth, reality well lostは一蓮托生のものだろう。

 記事の記者は、しかし、


There was a time when the West knew what it was about. It did so because it thought about itself—often in freshman Western Civ classes. It understood that its moral foundations had been laid in Jerusalem; its philosophical ones in Athens; its legal ones in Rome. It treated with reverence concepts of reason and revelation, freedom and responsibility, whose contradictions it learned to harmonize and harness over time. It believed in the excellence of its music and literature, and in the superiority of its political ideals. It was not ashamed of its prosperity. If it was arrogant and sinful, as all civilizations are, it also had a tradition of remorse and doubt to temper its edges and broaden its horizons. It cultivated the virtue of skepticism while avoiding the temptation of cynicism.

And it believed all of this was worth defending—in classrooms and newspapers and statehouses and battlefields.

We’ve since raised generations to believe none of this, only to be shocked by the rise of anti-Western politics. If you want children to learn the values of a civilization that can immunize them from a Trump, a Le Pen or a Lavrov, you can start by teaching it.


西洋=理性、啓示、自由、責任、繁栄、反省、開放、など、善き属性の塊で、そのようなことを重視する西洋的教育をしなくなって、現代のような惨憺たる有様になっちまったのだ、と思っているようで、これまた、旧態依然の、2項対立的、欧米中心主義的なトランプ、ルペンなどと同一線上にある発想であるのが、皮肉ではある。

”『産経』の「慰安婦」報道こそ捏造そのもの”

2017-02-21 13:34:34 | Weblog


慰安婦強制説には産経も絡んでいたわけだし、今日の日韓慰安婦問題を、朝日や吉田証言や河野談話のせいにする言説は間違っていますね。

慰安婦問題は女性問題なわけで、日米韓が協力して、日米韓の軍隊による慰安婦問題について協働して解決するのがスジ

すぐできる、自分を魅力的に見せる6つの方法 http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/scientific-ways-to-instantly-make-yourself-more-attractive-a7588266.html … ★グループで過ごす(チアリーダー効果。外見の悪い人ほど効果大) ★閉店間際の店に滞留(絵になる) ★笑顔を増やす ★赤い服を着る ★(女性限定)声を高くする ★質の高いユーモアを心がける



Hang out in groups

You look better with your friends than you do on your own, psychological scientists have found. The phenomenon known as the "cheerleader effect" happens because the human brain tends to average the faces of people in a group rather than seeing them as individual subjects. This benefits people with less attractive physical features.


グループでいると、個人としてみるより団体として人々の平均顔として処理されるのか。だから、外見のいいアイドルグループのなんかにいると、ボンクラ顔でも、すこしよく見えるわけか。

逆に、外見のいい人は、ボンクラ顔に引きずられて、評価がすこし低くなるとか?

Why Do We Say the Pledge of Allegiance in School?

In America, one of the key cornerstones of an educational day can be saying the pledge of allegiance in school. For many, it is one of the main tasks which is completed at the beginning of the day.


So - the main reason that the pledge of allegiance is said in schools is to instill a sense of patriotism amongst students.



強制ではないとはいえ、愛国教育はスゴイんですね、アメリカでは。


Do all American children recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily at school?

No.

But a lot of them do. About half of the US states require the pledge to be recited. Now, kids can opt out, but social pressure and occasional threats from teachers encourage them not to. This is case-by-case and depends on the school, the student, and the teacher; legally no one is required to recite the pledge.

Yes, for the vast majority of students. You can choose not to, and no one's forcing you to, but you're generally seen as 'edgy' by students and 'disrespectful' by teachers. What you can't do is get up and leave the room, or disrupt the proceedings.


拒否できるけど、大抵はやっている。社会的圧力がかかるのだ、とーーー日本風にいうと、実質強制なのか?

Jeff Kingston is NOT an expert on Japan

The list of journalists and commentators who are Sex Slave Deniarsの続き。

Rightists distort author Park Yu-ha’s views on ‘comfort women’
BY JEFF KINGSTON
SPECIAL TO THE JAPAN TIMES


この人は日本での論争を全く理解していない。



Based on Korean comfort women’s testimony, Park believes that recruitment was largely based on deception rather than coercion



だから、日本の右翼が引用するんでしょう。

論争のポイントは何だっかというと、韓国人慰安婦が、朝日新聞の吉田清二や韓国の記事のいうように、日本軍によって強制連行されたか否かだったのである。

This is why Right wingers often quote Park Yu-ha’s views

The point of the dispute was whether Korean women were "forced" into prostitution by Japanese military
Asahi and Korean media---and most of English media also---used to claim that the recruitment was coercion by Japanese military.
Asahi turned out to be wrong. *1





but she believes the consequences for all these women were horrific; none were free to leave once recruited and all were subject to military discipline.


多くの慰安婦が悲惨の状況にあったのは、右翼でも、小泉でも安倍でも認めている。

Even the statement by right wingers admit it.



Sakurai and other Japan conference folks.


Sadly, many women were made to suffer severe hardships during the wretched era during World War II, and it is with profound regret that we contemplate this tragic historical reality.


Koizumi


As Prime Minister of Japan, I thus extend anew my most sincere apologies and remorse to all the women who underwent immeasurable and painful experiences and suffered incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women



Abe

I am deeply pained to think about the ‘comfort women’ who experienced immeasurable pain and suffering as a result of victimization due to human trafficking



Practically none were free to leave the job and they continued to work as "comfort women" for U.S. soldiers recruited by Korean government after Japanese military left.




And for Japanese deniers, she inconveniently points out that “it appears that recruiters were often pairs of Japanese and Korean men.”


That's not inconvenient for Japanese right wingers: they know there were Japanese recruiters.


That's inconvenient for Koreans who claim as if they were innocent.


The comfort stations were closely monitored by the Japanese military


That's not secret. Again. U.S. document which right wingers are more than happy to cite confirms it;
The conditions under which they transacted business were regulated by the Army, and in congested areas regulations were strictly enforced. The Army found it necessary in congested areas to install a system of prices, priorities, and schedules for the various units operating in a particular areas.


Note also comfort stations for U.S. soldiers in Korea were also closely monitored by U.S. military: The military feared the spread of STD.


Kingston---I guess I can validly call him a American nationalistーーー conveniently ignores the fact that the similar situation continued even after Japanese military left: afterwards, they were forced to serve for U.S. military servicemen.


Despite the fact that former Korean comfort women for U.S. military asked for help, most of U.S. media and expats who blame Japan for sex slaves remain silent, leaving Korean female victims hopeless.



Japanese scholars and journalists had been critical of their government and spoke up against it. The consequence is the establishment of The Asian Women's Fund and the apologies by prime ministers.

Why is it American scholars and journalists keep trying to hide and deny the dark truth about Asian Sex Slaves for U.S. soldiers while blaming Japan ?


Most of American expats are as much nationalistic as Nippon Kaigi guys;though, they are unaware of it.

Lastly I doubt JEFF KINGSTON can read Japanese texts and communicate in Japanese well enough: almost all of the documents he cites are articles in English, he makes such misleading statements that he wouldn't if he could read and write Japanese texts and I've never heard of him speaking and writing in Japanese.

Journalists who write on Japan---you don't have to write an article in favor of Japan.
But please check the facts and restore the sense of fairness and justice in journalism, please.


他にも、軍服に似た国民服の存在とか知っているのか怪しいとか、元慰安婦の証言についてどれだけ知っているのか、などいろいろつっこみどころはある。

* 1 But note that there were individual cases where women were kidnapped ;however, Japanese police or military cracked down on the crimes.

McCurry (guardian) is a blatant liar

2017-02-21 04:04:47 | Weblog


McCurry is talking about Korean comfort women here.

Let me note first that the Korean victims' testimonies were produced many years later after the war. Therefore, to quote from True Stories of the Korean Comfort Women


many can faintly remember the sufferings they endured.




However,




1)Yoshimi 吉見 従軍慰安婦

(P92-111)。

日本の植民地における徴集
2 朝鮮からの場合
 だまされた事例
 朝鮮からの徴集でもっとも多いのは、だまされて連れて行かれたケースだった。(略)途中で、おかしいと気づいても逃げるすべは無く、故郷に帰ってもいいことはないとあきらめ、待っている仕事はそんなひどいこともないだろうと思い直し、なんとか前途に希望を見いだそうとしながら、最後に軍慰安所でつらい現実に直面させられたのであった。
 身売りされて
(略)
 売られて慰安婦にされた女性も、多くの場合、前渡し金による経済的拘束と詐欺がからみあっていたことがわかる。(略)
 
 暴力的連行のケース
 (略)
 彼女は、中国東北の軍慰安所に入れられる。拉致した日本人は、軍人か、巡査か、カーキ色の国民服を着た民間人か、断定できない。しかし、夕暮れ時であること、連れがいないこと、民間人らしき人物に引き渡されていることなどから、民間人による誘拐の可能性が高いのではないだろうか。もちろん、警察がこのような犯行を見落すか見逃すということは、軍から慰安婦送出への強い要求があるのだから、ありえたことであろう。



2)Hata 秦 郁彦 慰安婦と戦場の性(p192)

朝鮮半島においては日本の官憲による慰安婦の強制連行的調達はなかったと断定してよいと思う。




3)Park Yuha


When I examined the initial testimonies of former Korean comfort women, none of them claimed she was coerced by the Japanese military. The majority of the Korean women were sold by their fathers to the comfort station owners. Some Korean women were recruited on false pretenses by the Korean comfort station owners. Other Korean women were in the world's oldest profession, and they did volunteer to earn good money.



4)Sarah Soh


According to San Francisco State Professor Sarah Soh (author of the book The Comfort Women), women initially offered various explanations for working at comfort stations, such as supporting their families economically or escaping overbearing parents. Some women suffered abuse; others experienced more supportive conditions. Soh argues that all the women should freely share their experiences, without pressure to conform to the nationalist, anti-Japan narrative. She gives voice to the many types of comfort women, including the 61 who accepted the 1994 Asian Women’s Fund and were therefore branded traitors by activists.




5)Yuki Tanaka Japan's Comfort Women

most ”recruiting" seems to have been done by local Korean sub-contractor....
The most common expedient used in Korea was deceit --false promise of employment in Japan or in other Japanese occupied territories.(p38)



6)ATIS Research Reports No. 120 Amenities in the Japanese Armed Force, Nov. 15, 1945,

.RECRUITING;
The contract they signed bound them to Army regulations and to war for the "house master " for a period of from six months to a year depending on the family debt for which they were advanced




(マッカリー)


野球を全く知らない人が野球記事を書いているようなもので、しかも、ちょっと調べてみようということさえしない。

ジャーナリズムはここに、死にました。



”The story of the comfort women has often been distorted by Japan’s former adversaries ”



Don't assume McCurry(guardian) is reading Japanese newspaper.



McCurry does not report the reality of Okinawa


http://blog.goo.ne.jp/kentanakachan/e/449e0c6d5d2ac888adc39cf87d1925f6

David McNeill doesn't fact-check comfort women issue while he let the U.S. military get away


McCurry's interpretation is difficult to justify,


Justin Mccurry lied again.



Economist has no idea about what has been happening between Japan and Korea.

多文化主義から緩やかな同化政策へ

2017-02-20 21:55:46 | Weblog
FBの公開が友達限定なので引用しないが、ある移民推進派の学者がドイツ人とともに、多文化共生センターにいったら、日本では、日本語教室などの運営に国から全く予算がでていないので驚いた、と。

ドイツでは外国人住民のドイツ語学習は義務で、政府もドイツ語学習を提供する義務があるんだ、と。


たしか、メルケルが多文化主義は失敗と言い始めた頃、ドイツ語を学ぼう、みたいな記事を英語圏でもみかけるようになってきた。


多文化主義のタテマエからすれば、外国人は母国語=他文化を維持したまま暮らせるのスジ。

、”多文化共生”というと、外国人や外国出身者となかよく暮らす程度の理解なのかもしれないが、要するに、これは、ドイツ語の強制であり、ドイツでは多文化共生というより、同化政策がとられているということ。

改名や改宗の強制といった厳しい同化政策も問題があるが、しかし、多文化主義も失敗した。

これからは、緩やかな同化政策が原則になってくるだろう、というのが私の予想。
