    Oh, boy. I am looking forward to this. I gravitate to Japanese films (or older south Asian) because even if you go back 75 years and more, everything out of Hollywood has overt or indirect propaganda.

    The series of movies, 26 of them, about Ichi the blind swordsman, are so much fun. A person can get a little despondent after watching the serious B&W Japanese films after awhile. Also, I don’t know if I want to see Grave of the Fireflies again. A great movie, but once is enough.

    This from a review:

    Grave of the Fireflies is set during the World War II, when the US was firebombing Japan in a desperate attempt to end the war. No, they just love punishing their enemies forever and ever, either through bombing, occupation or sly methods.

        Thanks for telling me but no, I haven’t seen it. I had not even heard about it. My son told me that he watched it on youtube, though: same theme, different tone, as Grave. He sure doesn’t want to see Grave again, but says that Barefoot Gen is okay.

        A commenter on youtube re Barefoot Gen posted this link:

        Here, on a television show, Americans are swelling with pride that they brought some Japanese girls with extreme deformities from the bombing to USA for free plastic surgery. Also, this is the TV show where the copilot of the Enola, Capt Robert Lewis, shakes hands and kind-of apologizes to a Japanese priest. Everyone was somehow manipulated for the sake of great TV, if you ask me, though maybe I’m wrong about that. From wikipedia:

        The show [This is Your Life] had as its guest Reverend Kiyoshi Tanimoto, who had been living in Hiroshima at the time of the bombing and survived the explosion, as recounted in John Hersey’s 1946 book Hiroshima.

        Everybody I know thinks it couldn’t happen here.

    Two of the all-time legends of white nationalism discussing Japanese cinema… love it.

    Just a reminder for the Europeans that it’s actually 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET since we put the clocks back earlier this side of the Atlantic 😉

    My favorite Japanese movies are:

    Fires on the Plain (1959)
    Woman in the Dunes (1964)
    Heroic Purgatory (1970)
    House (1977)

    You should ask Jared about them.

    The MSM and their increasing antics brought me to you two and I appreciate you both providing me and others a place to land. I look at “Them” and I say “WTF?” you gentlemen provide a coherent argument at least.

    Because of Taylor’s recommendation I watched The Human Condition trilogy (1959-61), a nine and a half hour (!) cinematic masterpiece directed by Masaki Kobayashi, whom I consider to be on the same level as Kurosawa.

    The films are available on Youtube (for now).

      Good to see you Can. Always wondered what happened to you and many of our other friends at t**imag. We’ll check those films out in due course.

      If you like these lengthier films, there is another one titled: Sátántangó (1994) directed by Béla Tarr and a mere 7 hours and 19 minutes. However, portions of the film were used in a 13 minute video — Arvo Part – Salve Regina — which can still be found on utoob. I have not seen the 7-hour marathon but perhaps this winter.

      Stay well. Cheers, Boris

        @Boris. Susan Sontag put her stamp of approval on Satantango. Seems like a most interesting story at first glance, but the likes of S.S. don’t recommend something unless there’s something in it for them. She said she’d watch it once a year for the rest of her life. Prolly while munching on hamantaschen.

        https://www.talkhouse.com/watching-satantango-at-the-end-of-the-world/

        Sátántangó follows the disintegration and migration of a small farming community in rural Hungary.

        Wow. If the right folks like this movie, it must be as a result of seeing white rural folk coming apart at the seams. Debasing themselves with adultery, theft, madness, drunkenness, animal torture, suicide and every form of moral degradation.

        Tarr [the director] is a critic of nationalism, and in a 2016 interview said, “Trump is the shame of the United States. Mr. Orbán is the shame of Hungary. Marine Le Pen is the shame of France. Et cetera.” Look up the “et cetera” for even more and better swill.

    Regarding the correspondent who asked what they could do because their employer is implementing “anti-racism” training:

    In an ideal world, you could go to your local White Advocacy organization and they would take any number of actions: calling a strike, organizing a boycott, providing legal support for employees who refuse to go along with the indoctrination. Of course, we do not live in such a world…at least not yet. But incidents like this can be leveraged to mobilize for White interests.

    The issue is how much you are willing to risk. Some people are in a position where they can walk into their employer’s office, state their objections to anti-White agitprop, and then survive the consequences (like getting fired). And it just may be that if one makes the case against such training in a reasoned manner, an employer might back down.

    But if not…

    Might see a labor attorney to determine your rights. You may be able to make a case for a wrongful termination suit if you refuse to go along.

    Contact a civil liberties organization. The ACLU is largely hopeless at this point, but there is a possibility that a conservative legal defense firm (and there are some out there) might take up a class action lawsuit in your interest. This will take some legwork, but can pay off.

    See your state representative or national congressman. You might get some action out of them, especially since President Trump has come out against critical race theory agitprop. But don’t expect too much from them.

    Participants can use such indoctrination sessions as a forum to push dissident memes. Get a sense for how far you can push counter-arguments (and again, be prepared for the consequences!):
    * Attack the contradictions: if this “training” is about “diversity and inclusion” then shouldn’t there be a diversity of ideas and inclusion of White advocacy?
    * Does “racism” include institutional and systemic discrimination against White people through affirmative action and the rest of the race rackets?
    * Does “racism” include attacks on monuments to White people, from Columbus to Winston Churchill?
    * Does “racism” include the massive inter-racial criminal violence directed against White people? Have the statistics handy, which you can download from various websites (see “The Color of Crime” from American Renaissance; also, Paul Kersey over at SBPDL has a lot of good stuff).
    * Does “racism” include city governments dropping charges against rioters during the recent insurrection, but at the same time prosecuting citizens who use firearms in self defense?
    * Why does the media go into hysterics over career criminals who die in police custody while resisting arrest or assaulting an officer, yet ignore “people of color” who kill innocent White people like Cannon Hinnant and Justine Damond?
    * Why, if non-Whites are allowed to organize to advocate their own ethnic interests, can’t Whites do the same?
    * If the topic of so-called “White privilege” comes up, point out that when White people lose privilege in their own countries they end up being deprived of lives and liberties, from South Africa to Rotherham, and now in places like Minneapolis and Kenosha.

    If you feel you can’t speak up in these sessions:
    * Take notes about the agitprop lines being pushed. Especially pay attention to anything which can be interpreted as a personal attack against you over your race. Such notes can be useful if you later take legal action.
    * Gather information about the agitprop being pushed on workers. Post it online (anonymously if you must). Then other White advocates can assist in developing counter-arguments.
    * Take advantage of resentment among workers over said agitprop to spread the word about National Populism.

    Other things:
    * Send money to any of the pro-White organizations and websites – this is always useful and provides a sense you are doing something.
    * Buy books from White Nationalist publishers.
    * Get people you trust at work to take similar actions.
    * Continue to educate yourself from pro-White websites and podcasts.

    Think long term.

    You are a dissident up against the System. But you are not alone. There are many other people working for White interests worldwide. A major goal is building a pro-White legal advocacy organization.

    By maintaining morale and taking actions within your safety zone, you are participating in what can be the coming victory for White peoples worldwide.
