  •  Because Japanese society... (0+ / 0-)

    is soooo egalitatrian and feminist at heart that we should make it the model of the 21st century state.


    Seriously, if you'd care to compare 18th century America with 18th century Japan, I think you'll find one no better than the other as far as the treatment of women and their rights, while the Founders at least managed to avoid monarchical absolutism while their Japanese counterparts were still mired in absolutist insanity. Never mind that the ideas that the current Japanese Constitution contains are a product of U.S. intervention and their democracy is a product of that late 20th century process.

    It might be a good idea if you studied a bit of history before you make claims that have about as much validity as those of Glenn Beck's favorite gold pusher.
