Despite the United States’ plea for Japan to accept an unconditional surrender, the pure brutality and honor that they possessed never ceased to exist, even though many were aware of their ineluctable downfall. Also, because of the well known fact of Japan’s nature for tenacity, the war would have been lengthened for years at the cost of a substantial amount of lives. Equally important, the Manhattan Project was not an inexpensive feat; to see such potential and scientific achievement gone to waste would be a complete tragedy. Given all these points, the justification for dropping bombs of such a cataclysmic event is surfaced; indubitably,
The author also leaves the reader with the knowledge that both leaders of Korea and Japan have yet to meet in a face to face meeting since both of them took office, along with a tension between the countries over territorial disputes. Showing that conflict between the two is not restricted to just the comfort women. It was fascinating enough to learn this topic was still in a heated debate between Japan and Korea. Although it’s been over 50 years since the treaty was made, Korea has been actively fighting the injustices those poor women was put through. Another outstanding fact was that the Korean’s celebrate their 96th anniversary of their revolt against the Japanese imperials.
First of all, the conflicts between China and Japan is the main obstacle for East Asia economic integration surrounding the historical issues such as Nanjing Massacre and Yasukuni shrine. According to Wang, “it is reasonable that Japan promoted regional cooperation and tried to be the leader of East Asia. But the rise of China, along with hostile nationalism, greatly challenged Japan’s ambition because the formation of a China-dominated regional organization will dilute Japan’s regional inﬂuence”(Wang, 2011, p.209). From the perspective of China, the hostility to Japan is not only the way to transfer domestic contradiction but also cherish Chinese nation’s patriotism. Chinese scholars have pointed out that nationalism is burning in mainland China.
Differences in institutions and customs with Japan, while belonging to the same state, made identification difficult, and there was also a persistent opposition to the Meiji government of the former ruling party. As a result, Okinawa Prefecture took immediate measures such as "Ancient Customs Preservation Policy". It tried to avoid the Okinawa side's repulsion by abandoning the land system, tax system, and local system which have been in effect since the royal era, and do not make rapid reforms. However, due to this, various policies of Okinawa were greatly devastating from other prefectures, resulting in the suffering of the lives of the people of Okinawa as a result. The standardizing education for Japan to Okinawa (Japanization) came to be thorough after the Sino‐Japanese war in the 19th century.
Martin Luther King Jr. is a great example of Civil Disobedience because of his movement and how he made social progress with their civil rights. His Civil Right movement used nonviolent civil disobedience techniques to get their civil rights just as other whites already had. In this example the disobedience lead to social progress and allowed them to be seen as equal to the government with no laws against colored, religions, or races. Probably the most well known acts of civil disobedience would be the Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773. This political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston disguised themselves as Native Americans and destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by East India Company.
Civil disobedience is the deliberate action against an unjust law to invoke a positive change in government and society. Civilians have the right to refute these types of unjust laws to eliminate inequality and government’s unjust nature by following conscience before laws for moral guidance. As demonstrated in Antigone, this is depicted by the daughter of Oedipus, who disobeys Creon’s law for the greater good because of the laws unjust nature. In Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau, a naturalist, promotes this concept as well through his philosophical standpoint of the flaws of the government. Lastly, in Dr. King’s letter he qualifies the idea of civilians disobeying their government through non violent campaigns to stand up against
Like Martin Luther King Jr once said “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” With these words in mind, I affirm the resolution resolved: Civil disobedience in a democracy is morally justified. I offer the following definitions to help clarify the round: Civil disobedience is nonviolent refusal to follow the laws or demands of government to prove a point and the person participating in civil disobedience has to accept the consequences. A democracy is a government by the people, where the people elect representatives or the leader. Not everyone has to vote in a democracy but, the leaders or representatives have to be decided by the majority of eligible voters. Morally is doing the right thing based on the morals of the people
