Do you think that Japan's major problem after its defeat in the Second World War could be that it was not invaded? It was, admittedly, occupied, and it did surrender unconditionally, but the chain of events that led to its surrender may well have set it up for a 'victim' mentality afterwards. I suppose it is comparable to Weimar Germany, in that there is a feeling of victimisation. Is there a sense of betrayal by the government of the time, or of a desire for vengeance? Perhaps we have nothing to worry about because Japan did not have an economic disaster as acute as Weimar Germany's.
