Mr Abe's Revisionism

In Japan many people cannot find their own places in the society and have to work part-time and live a poor life in the face of higher tax. Mr Abe was meant to include them by making someone a bad guy, and the bad guy is the post-war premise that Japan did a lot of cruel things in the past.

Regarding Comfort Women in Korea and Nanjing Holocaust in China, it's an irony that the starter was Japanese themselves; the first reporter of Comfort Women is a nonfiction writer Senda Kakou, whereas of Nanjing massacre is a historian Iyenaga Saburo.

The problem Mr Abe faces is, even though China and Korea are making use of these issues for their political purposes, not the problem with China and Korea, but rather with Japan and Japanese.
