Fukuzawa states, “The national structure of a nation is not something immutable. It is subject to considerable change.” Fukuzawa believes that advancing civilization takes time. As he continues, western civilization seems to just be a goal of Japan and not of Asia, even though the title of chapter two is “Western Civilization as our Goal.” It is selfish of Fukuzawa to group Asia together as one identity. “Besides, civilization is not a dead thing it is something vital and advancing.” This is a huge contrast from the idea he has in “Goodbye Asia” where he emphasizes that China and Korea should already be as advanced as Japan. Fukuzawa explains his idea of civilization through different processes and does not hint at any imperialism and only using the west as an example.
Guardians ‘대한 독립 만세!’ or ‘Nothing important happened today.’ You know these statements if you are Korean and American or maybe the people of United Kingdom-the second quote was written by George the third in the day of when the ‘Declaration’ was released in America-. This Declaration is talking about Independence, and these quotes show us the differences and some similarity of the Korea Declaration of Independence and the America’s. Both things are decelerated of their countries’ independence from other countries plunder, included what they intruded in human rights after became a colony, archaism is one of their style of course, for example, ‘hath shewn’, ‘hither’ ‘오호’ and ‘펼쳐지누나’, the spirits of colonial people who wanted the independence of their homeland, longing for peace and appealed the fervent of declaration. And the most important and same thing of them is they made the future and hope of each country. However, if you analyze them, you may notice Declaration of Independence is the antithesis of Korea Declaration of Independence.
There was also, albeit as late as 2006, an agreement to move the MCAS Futenman from Okinawan to Guam. Despite the massive opposition, the treaty was not repealed because of its benefits for the Japan overall. There were both security and economic benefits for Japan. Japan never spent more than 1% of its GDP on military expenditures. Even according to a 2007 Okinawa Times poll, 73.4% of Japanese citizens appreciated the mutual security treaty with the US and the presence of the USFJ, so it can be clearly seen that, though there were concerns against the treaty, there was support for the treaty/agreement; therefore, the democratic impact was not
The idea of nothing really being neutral in creation brings up some good discussion when thinking about Japan’s experience. The question about whether technology is good, evil, or neutral can really be applied in this situation. Was it evil that guns were brought into Japan, and was it a good thing that the country actually went away from guns for a few centuries? It appears that when guns were introduced into Japan the harmonious culture was disturbed, and after the usage deteriorated, the country began to flourish again. While this seems to be the situation, I believe that the nature of technological developments depends more on an individual’s worldview and beliefs, opposed to the actual object

One of the main elements of dystopian society in both A Brave New World and A Canticle for Leibowitz is that there is no other realistic option to society. In A Brave New World, there are the Savage Reservations, but these areas are no rival society to the World State and information between them is limited as much as possible. “Not more than half a dozen people in the whole Centre had ever been inside a Savage Reservation” (Huxley 52). By restricting this knowledge of the other side, the World State is able to keep hope of any alternatives down to almost zero. On the other hand, by allowing the Japanese tourists to visit Gilead, the Republic risks having the people acquire hope that there can be change to a society better for them.
The economy of the West Coast would only be improved with the relocation of the Japanese, as many American farmers were missing out on work due to immigrant success. Pushy military persons used their positions to persuade the government to introduce mass relocation, when in reality, the necessity was only due to wartime hysteria. The biggest factor that led to the mass relocation of the Japanese people was racism. It grew out of the many acts that established the belief that Japanese people were not American citizens. Overall, the relocation of Japanese people in America was neither justified nor necessary.

Katsumoto demonstrated this when asked by Nathan Algren, an American soldier, “What do you want from me?” Katsumoto’s response was “What do you want from yourself?” Katsumoto was very evasive about answering such a direct
