Reminder that this is adapted from an autobiographical story where the author admits to letting his sister die from malnutrition.
Yes, they were orphans starving to death in WWII, and he took larger portions, deluding himself into believing she would be okay. Until it dawned on him she wasn't, and by then there wasn't much he could do.
He hated himself for it, and to him the short-story and movie are forms of atonement. He died last December.
you're a fucking moron
the nips committed war crimes worse than ours, worse than even fucking isis
they practiced ritual cannibalism on POWs
they were the antagonists
they attacked first with the soul purpose of getting land (lebensraum)
what about the people who tried to resist the army?
would the "good guys" just let them be killed?
would the good guys do nothing to stop imperialist foreign policy but place an oil embargo that provoked the militarist government to attack innocent people?
would the good guys murder thousands of children, and hold them responsible for the actions of their rulers?
lastly, would the good guys send thousands of their own people to die fighting for nothing but the ambitions and will to power of their rulers, sacrificing them in the exact same way that their opponents did?
a good guy would never place their ambition or any abstract nonsense like nations or churches over human life and human freedom
a good guy would never subsume the identities of millions of people and dehumanise them under one name based on nothing tangible either
People are always trying to turn history into a story, with heroes and villains; a struggle between good and evil; relatable everymen facing off against hoards of the faceless masses.
In the end it's just people hacking each other to death over things that mean next to nothing in the vastness of the universe.
It all means nothing.
>what about the people who tried to resist the army?
okay you don't know anything about imperial japan
the government set it up so that the people believed the emperor was a god (exactly like north korea)
the people of japan were heavily brainwashed, suicide tactics were common place (ex. kamikaze)
in the months before the nukes the government was training children incase of an invasion to run up to GIs with wooden spears and stab them. they were making it so that every civilian was trained and that America would basically have to waste the whole nation.
if the nukes weren't dropped japan might not even exist today
>sent to live with aunt
>she hates you for being a burden
>start starving to death
>take sister to doctor
>he does nothing
why do normies think this sort of behavior is ok, they turn into animals when there are no consequences to their actions then they pretend to be morally righteous good people
>in b4 no one is obliged to treat you like a human being
in that case I don't have to contribute to such a shitty society, I will help the homeless and such while being as much of an expense and burden on the normies as possible
>the government set it up so that the people believed the emperor was a god
you do realise that this just reinforces my point that the goverment was responsible?
I wasn't defending the regime at all, I'm indicting all governments involved in the conflict and all governments
>freeload off aunt who doesn't even want you living with her
>she takes some of your rice as payment
>decide it's better to have your sister and you die than to swallow your pride
How is this sad again?
Normies are like cattle, they would push down anyone that kind of trips and then trample him if they can. The difference is they developed the ability to delude themselves they are higher than that and get aggressive if you point it out to them. I used to have conservative, right wing views but once i saw through the nature of people now i am a full blown socialist and i want to live entirely on the expense of the riches, fuck everyone desu i always treated people as good as i could and i got destroyed for it.
People die in war. That's just the fact. The Japanese weren't innocent what so ever. Rape of Nanking, treatment of pows, Unit 731 and so on are prime examples of some of the sick shit the Japanese had committed. They made the Nazis (lel implying the holohoax is even factual) look civilized in their treatment of the jews.
Way to work against your own Robot issues their anon. The libcucks and socialist are responsible for all the degeneracy we have today. The formed a social climate unfit for a robot trying to make it.
Watch this video, it explains how you are wrong.
Even centuries ago rich men had multiple women like today in some arab countries, it was because women wanted it, not men. It was always like that but socialism can protect the basic men, not use them to death like the traditionalist societies.
You are a fucking retard that has been eating up too many pol/right wing memes. Before the emergence of traditional liberals of 19th century and the social state of 20th century 90% of men were workhorses that had absolutely no rights. You were lucky to survive and you could be slaughtered at any time by nobility or land rulers. They could take your woman and impregnate her and you couldn't do a thing if you didn't want your head to roll.
Every relevant army in the history of mankind did exactly the same. It's war you faggot. If you can't protect your women, you are killed and they are bred by the conqueror. Women don't even mind it. That's why you get swedish girls breeding with niggers, because their men are defeated faggots. Chinks only made a big deal out of it because the japs cucked them. I bet chink girls loved it.
In Europe things are a bit more murky (We are only now beginning to see the full rammifications of Germany's defeat as globalism and multiculturalism destroy western civilization unchecked) but the Japs were savage fucking animals that deserved extermination.
>the nips committed war crimes worse than ours
the nips massacred nanking, US nuked two cities to ash, Germans gassed da joos, english bomed dresden, USSR caused mass starvation, etc
every party committed horrible atrocities
Most of the time innocent people suffer the most in war. Just read things like the torture methods during the Massacres of Poles in Volhynia. It's insane. War is insane.
the government represents the people so yes it makes full sense to hold the people they accountable, they should've tried harder to overthrow the government if they didn't want to be held accountable
The nips did way worse things than any of the allies ever did so of course they are the antagonist of the war
>The nips did way worse things than any of the allies ever did so of course they are the antagonist of the war
Why do you quote my post if you are just going to ignore it you faggot? Only the allies during WW2 had adopted a policy towards systematically destroying civilians. The allies commited the most war crimes by far. I am going to post a link of one of the many movies that many people like to ignore because of the hollywood idealisation of the monsters the allies were : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkQ6J5F01Do
The bad gus won WW2. That's why the world today is exploitative hellhole, serving the interest of a selected few families.
This >>26149067 is more accurate. Hunger makes you do fucked up shit.
The thing is you know they're both dead from the outset, this is told to you at the start of the movie.
It's the ride down that gets you.
