      >meiji restoration
      kek the Meiji restoration is a meme. The emperor was beholden to the new government and was still a glorified figurehead

    Fun fact: Japs instituted a ritual blessing on the portrait of the Emperor in schools around 1900 where the principal was supposed to say a prayer to the Emperor at the beginning of the school year. At least two principals pronounced the words in the prayer incorrectly during the ceremony, and they later killed themselves out of the shame

        Nah, I believe it. This just happened
        >A junior high school principal lost his job and retirement pay, believed to be around 20 million yen ($135,000), as punishment for overfilling his coffee at a convenience store in Takasago, Hyogo Prefecture.

        >At an interview by board officials, the school head reportedly said he did it “on the impulse of the moment” and he was “truly sorry” for his misconduct.

        >The principal also admitted to doing the same thing four times at another store--bringing the total amount he had scammed to 490 yen.

          >convenience store has a trust system where you pay for either a small or a large coffee and then fill your coffee up to that level
          >he keeps paying for the small and fills it up to the top
          >he has (or had LMAO) a well paying job so there is no economic factor to consider here
          >he is simply a dishonest and unprincipled person
          the fact you see nothing wrong with this is the reason we have cages in our stores, you are a spiritual, ethical, and moral Black person

            This is why your nation has no birthrates and no economic future.

            His job is to teach children. This act shows he has a bad soul, morality, worldview, whatever you want to call it. It's not a matter of how serious the action is, the fact it's so petty actually makes it much worse in many ways, he didn't steal Grandma's inheritance which would have a tangible positive effect on his life, no, he stole something that didn't matter when he could freely afford not to.

            This is up there with putting your shopping cart back as the determiner of whether or not you are a Black person and in this case, sadly, he is a Black person.

        Unrelated but was the edo period really that peaceful? The more and more I read on it the more similar it just seems a military dictatorship like north Korea. Forcing peasants, Buddhists and samurai to be poor so they don't overthrow the government, controlling where you can travel...

          I mean, North Korea is "peaceful."
          They haven't had a real war in like 70 years.

      it's amazing how autistic they became about their emperor when historically the emperor was treated as a joke for over a thousand years. Emperor obsessed freaks even went so far as to behead the buddhist statues of the first three Ashikaga Shoguns for BTFOing the emperors of Japan

      basically all of japanese historical culture seems to be based on bizarre propaganda written to the benefit of the emperor.

    The peasant archetype replaced the noble archetype because the Emperor got rid of the nobles

      >implying it's the Emperor's fault
      Tokugawa shoguns were the ones who shoved the neo-confucian bugman ideology down everyone's throats, the imperial government has merely inherited this framework

    During the Tokugawa period, woodblock printing became popular and the samurai began reading books about the emperor. Then, they realized that the emperor was amazing and the number of samurais who respected the emperor more than the shogun gradually increased.
    This led to Meiji Restoration.
