The American is reactionary due to his education, but the Japanese is reactionary in his blood. There will never be a left-wing movement of significance in Japan. Just let them die out in their autonomous, antinatalist, hypercapitalist state.

The only leftist policy possible in Japan is make it a backyard of DPRK with a big volcano in the middle.

Well, this thread went to shit fast.

If I remember correctly there was a Maoist student movement that went so haywire they purged themselves out of existence for ideological purity. Then there was the one that one that went round hijacking shit and shot up an Israeli airport.

Absolutely based

I have to guess these normalfaggot reddit dregs just think that anime is facist because some dumb fuck shop'ed a trump hat on a touhou on twitter. And since anime=Holla Forums, and japan=anime, you see.
I swear to fucking god when it all falls apart im walling these people personally.

As i understand it post-Meiji Restoration there were a number of pro-democracy movements and later communist ones as marxist and anarchist ideas seeped into Japan. Mostly minor stuff like small circles of intellectuals and the like.
As Japan industrialised consolidating the Zaibatsu cartels further and begun increasingly realising its imperial ambitions post-WW1 the army/navy cliques and corporate oligarchs took hold of more and more sections of government, phasing out the short-lived period of liberal democracy.
This was exacerbated by reactions to the October Revolution since the Comintern had set its eyes on Japan as an important developed nation to spread world revolution to and the JCP had been formed and while it was banned its candiates stood for other parties and were winning. This combined with the external threat of the USSR was worrying to the Japanese state and especially actions like the attempted assassination of Hirohito (then prince regent) by a marxist student caused a large backlash in the form of the peace preservation law which banned other political parties and allowed the implementation of a total police state whereby any dissent against the current order was punishable as in the case of the March 15 incident (election led to government only keeping one-seat majority so they launched a crackdown on communists arresting 1600 communists and sympathisers). The secret police was very effective in infiltrating the communist organisations and successfully brought them all down suppressing the JCP's leadership entirely (also the Comintern all but stopped supporting the JCP suspecting it of 'Trotskyism', although compared with the KPP they got of easy)
During the 30s and 40s some 70,000 people were arrested under that law and leftism was entirely suppressed. When the US occupation kicked in after WW2 the peace preservation laws were repealed and communists were released with other political prisoners but new US occupation laws banned communists from taking public offices and banned trade unions which were communist backed while the Nikkeiren (Jap federation of employers) organised anti-communist unions effectively monopolising unionisation.
Communist groups organised various acts of terrorism which peaked around the Korean and Vietnam wars like the Japanese Red army. During the Vietnam war there was an upsurge of aggressive leftist activism especially among students as well as some syndicalist activity.
But this wave died with the rest of the 'new left' and Japan hasn't seen much in the way of leftist politics or activity, despite producing many great leftists, until more recently as the JCP emerged out of obscurity following the 2008 crisis to make parliamentary gains and being now one of the most successful parliamentary communist parties alongside Greece's and Portugal's although their policy program is effectively socdem and they don't present themselves as radical in any way really. Still they benefit from being the only authentic opposition in Japan since its a de facto one-party state with all parties aside from the JCP being LDP puppets who consistently field joint candidate with the LDP especially on local government level where the JCP is the only other candidacy.

user rolling in his grave

"race" is a useless concept and scientists cant even agree on a useful working definition.
There are no meaningful hormonal or psychological differences between large popluations of humans due to genetics. None. At all.
The vast majority of human biodiversity occur between individuals(or maybe better put, between families). This is because humans experienced a very tight population bottlneck in very recent hitory, in evolutionary timescales. Two tribes of chimps who live within miles of each other are more genetically distinct from each other than humans on different continents.
ideological tendency isn't passed down through your fucking chromosomes.

Explain chicago murder rate without bullshit gun arguments and poverty arguments. You cant.

Violent crime isn't genetic if it's been rapidly declining for almost thirty years, you inbred.

good god you are retarded

remember, acting confident and insistent in being retarded doesn't make you look any less retarded, just obnoxious on top

Huh I wonder why poor people commit crimes?

Get a lot at this apparently poverty is racially genetic lmao.


rightards think the point of poverty and crime is that being poor magically makes you a bad person and not that the degradation of material conditions is naturally followed by the degradation of social order
IIRC the very few cases where genetics are involved are being pinned on epigenetics caused by poor places being hazardous for health

Did anything change after the 1985 riots?

the economy exploded and those crazy kids had to go back to work

The Japanese Left was very active and uncompromising in the '60s and '70s.
