Fundamentally, I do agree with you. Although your blog is read by a lot of Japanese people, too, I think, it seems. I don't want to put anyone's house in order, my only interest is in gaining insight and wisdom. It seems to be, tho, that you will look at a certain phenomenon going on in the East and pronounce it "super-x" and inherently good and praise it, and invoke ideals of conformity and the the loveliness of everyone having connectivity and so on. Then you'll point to something pretty darned similar in the West and pronounce it "y" and inherently bad and put it down, and invoke the nastiness of individuality and aggressive manhood and big muscles and people who like sports. And then we'll all decide as a group that the Eastern way is definitely better and the Western way sucks, but to me, they look pretty similar really. Urban people buying shit made by rural slaves they'll never meet.

*shrug* From where I'm sitting, on my dairy farm on the coast of Humboldt, California, it all looks pretty much the same. Perhaps I must visit the Concrete Paradise over the water to really understand how people are living their slow lives surrounded by asphalt and concrete and steel.
