The Dark Side

When I get a moment, I'll be writing an entry entitled "The Stages of Gaijinhood", an entry inspired by a converstaion I had last night with a gaijin (foreigner) who lived in Japan for 23 years, backed up by my own experience. However, for the time being I just want to bring you this quote by the scholar Ivan Hall, who, when debating the role of the Japanese media noted that

"where the Japanese Media differ from the other industrial democracies is not in the way they trumpet their national achievements, but in their strenuous effort to hide the dark side."

Oh how true!
