It seems Japan is one of the only developed countries that continually receives unwanted, ill-informed and irrelevant comments about its social structure from outsiders who should clean up their own messy countries,,,

Well the viewpoint from trenches is that both men and women in growing percentages don't even want to become managers. It is just a lot more work and responsibility with slightly more pay. The entire system should be improved for all workers.

I have never been called kawaii in Japan. When I first came 20 years ago I heard otokomae or kakko ii from time to time, but now I am lucky if I get compared to Nicholas Cage on a good day. Gents, getting old sucks.

You messing around with those herbs? You would do well to study Chinese and be lucky enough to work for Mr. Wang in the future.

The greatest beneficiary of Japan's inability to get along with China based on Yamato arrogance and historical revisionism is the US. I think Japanese do not realize how well Chinese are treated and welcomed in the US without discrimination. There may be some of course by idiots, but Chinese are successful as business leaders, doctors and lawyers and politicians. If a Chinese family moves next to you in the US you are liable to be happy about that and welcome them. I see in California some schools teach Chinese in elementary school. Where is Japan in this? Denying historical atrocities, stirring up land grabs for bird toilet rocks, refusing to make proper apologies that are not taken back by the next idiot politician. The 21st century will be the century of China, India and the US. Sorry Japan, pride does not equal power.

@Stephen Knight, "Having been written under great duress, with extensive "coaching," these so-called "confessions" are almost useless as documents of historical fact"
You obviously don't know Japan at all. The entire criminal justice system here is premised on confessions under duress. Yes, being held captive for up to 28 days with no evidence is duress in my opinion. If it is good enough for Satou it is good enough for Wang.

I saw power harassment at a patent office in Japan firsthand. The boss/owner was mad at a patent attorney and gave him every single new case for a month. His to-do cases were piled about 3 feet on his desk. On average we could do 2-3 cases a day, but he was getting 12-15. It was sad but amusing.

There are three steps to getting hired at a Japanese company:
1. Bend over
2. Smile as they are giving it to you
3. Once you are hired start on antidepressant until you either leave this country or that the Big Out
