People thinks of North Korean propaganda as communist propaganda, probably because of the URRS influence over North Korea but the truth is that the country’s propaganda comes from a unique mix of ideals and culture. The influence of Japanese culture is greater than East communist influence contrary to what we might think, and we can observe this influence in the type of propaganda that the Kim regime has used from its roots, using an imperial Japanese propaganda, based in a dominant dualism, in this case Kim Il Sung chose purity versus impurity. Kim Il Sung borrowed the elements that the Japanese leader, Hirohito had implemented during Japan’s occupation and that people had already learned and accepted. Hirohito, who was considered by the North Korean as the parent of the childlike race, Great Marshal, who their nation must hold him up at the highest as he was the sun to their nation and even die if it was necessary to protect him. Kim made use of this references changing few points and this made him a great fit to what the people thought they needed as a leader to take care of their nation and race.
There were many important causes and effects of the Spanish American War. In the 1880’s the U.S. wanted to achieve manifest destiny and so they expanded out west and took control over the Native Americans. There were four different motives that the United States could’ve used to imperialize: political and military interest and economic interest were mostly with trading. Humanitarian and religious interest, to help those that you have allied with or to spread religion and the rich help those who were “under privileged.” Lastly, social darwinism, the idea that you are superior than someone else. The United States wanted to avoid war and so they set up trading alliance with both China and Japan.
Imperialism can be defined as “the takeover of a country or territory by a stronger nation to dominate the political, economic, and social life of the people of that nation.” Moreover, since social darwinism supported imperialism, it, therefore, justified racism. During the time of industrialization and imperialism, Europe was on a constant search for resources for their industries and turned their attention to Japan, the Congo, and India. However, while Europeans sought to take over those countries as they also felt that it was their duty to “improve” them. Unlike the Congo and India, Japan was able to modernize and adapt. As a result of European colonization, the Congo and India’s population suffered as India starved and the Congo became divided.
Additionally, another circumstance was when U.S fleets sailed into Edo bay to present treaties to overrule Japan including the supreme classes. Through the medium of this, it meant that the Samurais transformed greatly from being high class warriors to ordinary bureaucrats. This ideal significantly outlined that Japan’s philosophy and social structure was not all that persistent but turned out to be frail. As a consequence, it made Japan think diversely and came upon the decision that they should overhaul their current condition and
Japan and its Globalization For the recent years, globalization and Japan appear as two binary terms. While several nations take advantage of the benefits resulting from globalization, take for example China and its foreign direct investment (Yu, 2002), Japan views globalization more of a problem due to the compromising effects it caused to its national identity. The country formulated seemingly practical solutions to mitigate this pseudo-problem while continuing to beat foreign competitors in the world’s labor market. Japan made this possible through the aid of its highly-recognized key industries such as automobiles, consumer electronics, and computers. For the purpose of this paper, the key players in the globalization of Japan and the nations it has partnered with in its efforts to globalize as well as its outcome will be identified.
This was not different in the war-ridden 1940’s. Most consider sheer nationalism as the driving force behind the American support for the war. However, a great deal of this support stemmed off of Disney’s various types of propaganda. Without the help of Disney’s different war campaigns, this nationalism would not have been as strong. Disney products of the 1940’s were the main strategy the United States government used to push young Americans to support World War II and to have anti Japanese and Nazi sentiments.
The “Horserider Theory” formed by Egami Namio in 1949 has caused much controversy amongst a majority of Japanese academics. This is so because it suggests Japanese racial impurity and that early Japanese society was heavily influenced by Korean outsiders who conquered and invaded Japan during the late fourth century to the early fifth century. Opposition to the “Horserider Theory” cites the lack of archaeological evidence and the misinterpretation by Egami of historical literary records in order to refute the theory. However, Western scholars of premodern Japanese history, as well as more liberal ethnic Japanese historians, support the theory (Edwards 265-266). The “Horserider Theory” is accurate because of corresponding archeological and literary
This was amended and turned into the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan in 1960, which sparked outrage and civil disobedience. The civil obedience of 1960 was massive and was a proof that Japanese were serious about the sovereignty of their country. The resignation of Prime Ministers of Japan is an evidence that democracy was in action in the country and the impact of people was present. When the Security Prime Minister Nobusuke was forced to sign amidst the protests and oppositions against the treaty. Also, In 2006 agreement between Japan and United States governments, it was decided to move MCAS Futenma from Okinawan to Guam, but this decision received little support, and later Hatoyama resigned, stating that he failed to fulfill one of his promises.
After world war 2, Korea was divided into communist North with Kim Il-Sung appointed as the Prime Minister and democratic south with Syng-Man Rhee elected as president in South. This resulted in the formation of two governments of different ideology. Both Rhee and Kim desired to unite Korea. Rhee told Dr. Robert that “North Korea should be recaptured by the force of arms to fulfill the ancient nationality of Korea.” While Kim spoke to Shtykov that he"can 't sleep at night because thinking of the unification of the whole country.” However, due to differences in ideology, reuniting Korea was hard which resulted in military force. Spies were killed when found across the 38th parallel, and many gun-involved
The ideologies that percolated in the Philippines are known to be the cause of the rise of Nationalism among the Filipino people. These dogma’s introduce to us are considered to be the contributing factor that inspirited the people to clamor the government for change. The spread of communism itself in Asia, and the lingering effects of wars somehow triggered the adaption and acceptance of these foreign ideologies. The introduction of these doctrines created change, through series of attempts that attacks the system which was then viewed as unfair. Peasants then grasp the ideology for the relief and hope, that maybe; these could be their chance to enact change and the opportunity to gain access into the privileges they were deprive to have.
