“And we should all give a big hand to Adelstein for taking the stand he’s taking.”
Well, yes and no. Much as CJ is something of a special head-case and engages in libel throughout the article, he does actually raise some fairly legitimate points about Adelstein’s journalistic practice. He’s right in stating that some pretty well-known newspapers accepted the story about Goto that had barely verifiable sources. And in a few cases, such as the National Geographic episode, CJ seems really to have done his homework. I also had similar thoughts about the self promotional nature of Adelstein book affecting his status as a journalist, particularly in his book. Also, some of the reasons for not quoting his sources, as CJ mentioned, are pretty weak. I can’t trust what he writes, which is, let me be clear, a different thing altogether from saying he is a liar. What he writes may well be true, but the evidence is pretty thin.
This kind of looks like a sort of bonfire of vanities to me, with Adelstein being the slicker operator of the two and with CJ’s name already mud.


どちらもよく知らないが、しかし、Jake氏のほうがまだ、まともなような気もする。



Since Japan does not have as many journalism schools or press watchdog groups as other countries, many journalists feel that the work of NHK, Nikkei, Asahi, Mainichi, Kyodo and Adelstein's former employer, the Yomiuri, often falls below the standards of small town or even college papers at journalism schools in North America. One mainstream media article this year, about the detention of French journalists working in Fukushima, basically boiled down to this: Japanese daily cites unnamed sources making unproven accusations against unnamed journalists, whereabouts unknown.

"Bokki", a commenter on www.fuckedgaijin.com, summed up what many trained and seasoned journalists feel about Adelstein:


日本のジャーナリストを北米と比較して馬鹿にしておきながら、fucked Gaijinの匿名さんのコメントを情報源として引用するあたり、○○としかいいようがない。
というより、あの記事の間違いを指摘されてからの反応はゆうに常軌を逸している。

いずれにせよ、記者なら文筆で、とことんやりあって、決着をつけてもらいたい。

因みに私の印象では、日本のジャーナリストは裏とりは一応する習慣があるが、問題意識が少ないか、問題意識をもった記事を書くことを制限されているようにみえる場合が多い。他方、北米の記者は問題意識はあるのだろうが、しかし、基本的な裏とりをする習慣がないようにさえ思えることが多いし、また、固定観念・偏見がつよく、メジャーな新聞社、雑誌社でも、センセーショナリズムに走る傾向がある。

The fate of multiculturalism in France
The unprecedented electoral success of the far-right shows the resonance of extremist and nationalist discourses.
Last Modified: 30 Apr 2012




With 80 per cent of citizens taking part in the vote, there is undoubtedly a notable presence of extremist and nationalist feeling in the ideological and political landscape throughout Europe. Germany recently allowed the re-release of the controversial Adolf Hitler book, Mein Kampf, and Norway is currently witnessing the trial of Anders Breivik, accused of murdering 77 people last year with overtly racist motives.

These events reinforce the widespread fear that the old continent is increasingly giving the floor to far-right ideas.

It all started with the creation of a "ministry of immigration, integration and national identity", whereby immigration was erected to the status of an "issue". A series of anti-immigration laws were subsequently adopted.

The first ones targeted mixed couples who dared to marry. According to President Sarkozy and his government, a foreigner is obviously not in love with the person he/she has decided to marry. In the name of the fight against "white marriages" - also known as marriages of convenience - mixed couples who decided to legally bind themselves had to undergo embarrassing and somehow humiliating controls to prove that they actually share their lives together and love each other. This process could involve answering questions on intimacy, telling how you met your beloved one, and all kind of personal memories one wouldn't easily share with an administration. Figures that prove "white weddings" represent such an overwhelming threat for the country have yet to be published.

Citizens who may not appear to have French nationality also have suffered from stigmatisation. When it's not their religion that allegedly prevents them from fully integrating French society, they see the sacrosanct principle of equality of all citizens suddenly stop at their door. In a July 2010 speech in Grenoble, Sarkozy said that any French citizen with foreign origins who was found guilty of a murder of someone working for the public authority should be stripped of their French citizenship, in addition to the penal condemnation.


外国出身 国籍剥奪

Last but not least, a 2011 decree signed by Sarkozy's minister of interior, Claude Guéant, recently caused national and international stupor by making it increasingly difficult for foreign students who had graduated from a French university to obtain a work permit, and thus pursue a first professional experience in France. The justification given was that employers should hire French citizens before foreign ones.

The Supreme Court and Dangerous Immigration Metaphors
by Mónica Novoa ShareThis | Print | Comment (26)
Friday, April 27 2012



In an important paper in the Fordham Law Review, Keith Cunningham-Parmeter unpacks the U.S. Supreme Court’s three dominating metaphors: “immigrants are aliens,” “immigration is a flood,” and “immigration is invasion.” He contends that metaphors influence judicial outcomes, social discourse and the immigration debate in the United States and thus, “how we think metaphorically affects how we talk about problems and the solutions we formulate in response to those problems.”

To our great disappointment this week, Justice Sonia Sotomayor and others used the terms “illegal immigrant,” “illegal alien,” and “criminal alien” during proceedings over SB 1070. It mattered that Sotomayor made the choice to use this language, because she’s made the choice to use other terminology before.

外国人住民、日本人との交流「あいさつ程度」「ない」4割


豊田市調査
 日本人とはまったく交流がなかったり、あいさつをする程度にとどまったりする地域の外国人が約4割いることが26日、外国人住民を対象とした豊田市の意識調査結果で分かった。

 市内に外国人登録している20歳以上の住民を無作為に1000人抽出し、昨年12月にアンケートを郵送して調査。うち319人から回答を得た。国籍の内訳はブラジル117人、中国90人、フィリピン55人など。

 「日常的に日本人と交流する機会があるか」との質問に、「親しく交流している人がいる」は37・3%、「日常生活のことを話す友人がいる」は21・3%だった。一方、「あいさつをする程度の知人がいる」は33・5%で、「まったく交流がない」は6・9%だった。

 悩みや不安に関する質問(複数回答)では、「自分や家族の健康」(61・4%)、「地震などの自然災害の対応」(44・2%)、「仕事がないこと」(43・6%)などが上位にきた。

 前回(2009年)の調査結果と比べると、「健康」についての悩み・不安は32・4ポイント上昇、「自然災害」については24・7ポイント上昇した。昨年の東日本大震災や福島第一原発事故に伴う不安感が影響したとみられる。

 豊田市内には1万4068人(4月1日現在)の外国人が住んでいる。市は交流イベントや日本語学習などの支援事業に力を入れているが、「調査結果を事業の策定に生かし、さらに支援していきたい」(市国際課)としている。

Francis Fukuyama’s Theory of the State
By MICHAEL LIND

The Origins of Political Order: From Pre-Human Times to the French Revolution, By Francis Fukuyama
FRIDAY 13 MAY 2011



During most of the long period covered by this book, China was the world's most effective large-scale state and its remarkable recent recovery owes much to this fact. Likewise Indian democracy, in this account, may owe something to the legacy of the British Raj but much more to the vigour of civil society in the sub-continent stretching back for over two millennia. However, the political institutions of these two great civilisations were often compromised by survivals of dense networks of kin which weakened China's state bureaucracy or corrupted India's sacred order.



Christianity succeeds in diminishing family ties when the Church takes a strong stand against practices which enhanced the power of lineages such as cousin marriage, divorce, adoption and marriage to the widows of dead relatives. The looser family pattern favoured by the practices of Latin Christianity have the effect of channelling assets to the Church itself (eg through widows' bequests). Fukuyama further urges that "contrary to Marx, capitalism was the consequence rather than the cause of a change in social relationships".


In Fukuyama's view, the path to modern capitalism required institutions not only freed from kin entanglements but limited by the rule of law and accountable to at least some of the ruled. He sees European feudalism as replacing kinship ties, with an implicit contract of dependency and protection in their place. However, the book devotes little attention to the emergence of capitalism and fails to scrutinise what was very possibly the crucial development –the emergence of wage labourers and tenant farmers in the English countryside in the 16th century. The enclosure of common land by private landlords and the dissolution of the monasteries are not discussed, and curious references are made to English "peasants". While Fukuyama offers a vivid sketch of the "evil Empress Wu" in China (624-705), there is no matching portrait of Henry VIII.

Human beings have always organised themselves in tight-knit groups – there never was a Rousseauian paradise of free-spirited individuals roaming contentedly through the primordial forests. The trouble was that the first human societies were too tight-knit. These were essentially kinship groups and generated what Fukuyama calls "the tyranny of cousins". People would do almost anything for their relatives, and almost anything to the people who weren't (rape, pillage, murder). This was a recipe for constant, low-level conflict, interspersed with periodic bouts of serious blood-letting.

The way out of the kinship trap was the creation of states (by which Fukuyama means centralised political authorities), which were needed to break the hold of families.



States are one of the three pillars Fukuyama identifies as providing the basis for political order. The reason that powerful states aren't enough on their own is that political power doesn't necessarily solve the problem of kinship. Instead, it can simply relocate it up the chain, so that all you get are strong rulers who use their power to favour their relatives, a phenomenon that is all too easy to identify, from the ancient world to contemporary Libya. So the rule of states needs to be supplemented by the rule of law, which imposes limits on political power and corruption. However, the rule of law itself can destabilise political order by undermining the ability of states to take decisive action when it is needed, and giving non-state organisations too much of a free hand. Hence the need for the third pillar: accountable government (or what we might now call democracy). This retains a strong state but allows people to change their rulers when they start behaving badly.





China enjoyed an early advantage on the path to political order, but it was this advantage that set it back, because too much power was concentrated too soon. It is this fact, Fukuyama believes, that explains the autocratic condition of Chinese politics to this day.

Another country, perhaps more surprisingly, that got it right but got it wrong was Hungary. In the 13th century, just seven years after Runnymede, Hungary arrived at its own Magna Carta moment ("the Golden Bull"), which enabled the nobles to impose legal limits on the arbitrary power of the monarch. Why didn't Hungary then progress on an English-style path to freedom and constitutional government? Because the nobles got too much: they so weakened the king that they ended up being free to do whatever they liked, which basically meant exploiting their peasants and enriching their own families.

CNN’S Roland Martin: Racism is in ‘America’s DNA’
-By Warner Todd Huston

As far as race-baiter Roland Martin of CNN is concerned, America is guilty until proven innocent. Guilty of racism as some sort of original sin, one that can never be washed away by either deeds or absolution.
On April 26, Martin got his inner Je$$e Jack$on on and tweeted: “I simply accept the reality that racism is in the DNA of America. And when that button is pushed, the true feelings come tumbling out!”
Mark down Mr. Martin as another one of those that seem not to understand that racism is a human frailty, not a uniquely American one. Also mark him as a member of the race-industry that is scared to death that people will realize that America has come a long way toward alleviating racism, far from the days of slavery and Jim Crow.

小沢氏無罪判決―政治的けじめ、どうつける




 判決は、小沢氏の政治団体の政治資金収支報告書の内容はうそだったと認めた。それでも無罪なのは、秘書が細かな報告をしなかった可能性があり、記載がうそであると認識していなかった疑いが残るからだという。


 秘書らの裁判と同じく、虚偽記載が認められた事実は重い。しかも判決は、問題の土地取引の原資が小沢氏の資金であることを隠す方針は、本人も了承していたと認定した。


小沢氏無罪 復権の前にやることがある(4月27日付・読売社説)


結論はシロだが、「潔白」ではなく「灰色」という司法判断だろう。

 資金管理団体・陸山会の土地取引を巡り、元秘書と共謀し政治資金収支報告書にウソの記載をしたとして政治資金規正法違反で強制起訴された民主党の小沢一郎元代表に、東京地裁が無罪を言い渡した。

 土地購入原資の4億円の不記載などについて、判決は「小沢氏は元秘書から報告を受け、了承していた」と認定した。検察官役の指定弁護士が「共謀が成立する」と主張したことには「相応の根拠がある」とまで述べている。

 ただし、こうした会計処理を違法であると小沢氏が認識していたことを示す立証は不十分だとして、最終的に共謀は認めなかった。有罪か無罪か、まさに紙一重の差だったことがうかがえる。

 判決は、秘書だった石川知裕衆院議員らがメディアからの批判を恐れ、小沢氏提供の4億円を意図的に隠蔽した、と指摘した。

 石川議員ら元秘書3人に対しては、1審・東京地裁が昨年9月、有罪判決を言い渡している。


社説:小沢元代表無罪 なお政治的責任は重い
毎日新聞 2012年04月27日


元秘書の衆院議員、石川知裕被告は4億円提供と同時期、なぜわざわざ同額の銀行融資を受けたのか。
 判決は、目的について「提供を受けた4億円の簿外処理のため」としたうえで「元代表の個人資産から提供された事実が対外的に明らかになると取材などで追及され、元代表が政治的に不利益を被る可能性を避けるためだった」と動機を指摘した。
 4億円を記載しないことについて元代表への「報告・了承」があったのかについては「秘書らは自ら判断できるはずはない」と指摘し、元代表の了承を認定した。
 判決は、共謀の成立の検討について「相応の根拠がある」とも指摘した。だが、4億円の記載時期の先送りが虚偽記載になることを元代表が認識していなかった可能性などを指摘し、無罪の結論を導いた。

注目したいのは、判決が元代表に対して厳しい目を向けていることだ。元代表は法廷で、「報告・了承」があったことを全面的に否認した。だが、判決はこうした主張の核心部分を否定した。
 元代表の法廷発言に変遷があるとして、信頼性にも疑問を投げかけた。4億円の融資書類にサインした経緯を述べた法廷発言は「不自然」とし、「報告書は一度も見ていない」との発言についても、およそ信用できないとした。
 元代表は、政治資金の処理について「一切、秘書の自主判断でやってもらっていた」と法廷で発言した。秘書任せにしたことで、虚偽記載に至る具体的な事情が耳に入ることがなく、かえって刑事責任を問われずに済んだ。判決はそういった事情も書きこんだ。
 だが、秘書らを監督する政治家としての責任は別だ。石川被告ら元秘書3人は昨年、東京地裁で有罪判決を受け、控訴している。今回、判決が再度、元秘書らによる報告書の虚偽記載を認定した事実は重い。元代表の道義的責任は一層、強まったといえる。




小沢氏無罪判決 証人喚問で「潔白」示せ このまま復権は許されない
2012.4.27


判決で、検察官役を務めた指定弁護士の主張を大幅に認めた意味は大きい。小沢元代表が提供した4億円について元秘書らによる虚偽記載罪が成立することや、簿外処理について報告を受け、了承していたことも認定した。

元代表が収支報告書を「一度も見たことがない」と述べたことは「およそ信じられない」と指摘し、「一般的に不自然な内容で変遷がある」と批判した。最大の争点だった共謀の有無にも「共謀共同正犯が成立するとの指定弁護士の主張には相応の根拠があると考えられなくはない」と述べた。

 それでも無罪となったのは「被告の故意および実行犯との共謀について証明が十分ではないため」との結語のみによる。これでは小沢元代表の弁護団が閉廷後語った「完全な無罪」にはほど遠い。
