Japan wouldn't be an effective hegemon for the vampires--until resources work differently, the Japanese islands can't compete with the Roman, British, Soviet, or American Empires, or a future Chinese Empire. Unlike the rest of the territory conquered during the Israeli Wars, though, Japan was filled with a partly Mongoloid population. Whereas financiers in Britain had used pro-Europeoid, anti-Mongoloid racism to justify nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century exterminations, the shift from London to New York, Crown to Columbia, saw the techniques reverse. For the late twentieth century to the early twenty-first century, anti-Europeoid racism offered shelter to the Japanese who had survived the atomic madness. The need to counterbalance racism with racism kept Japan intact--while Germany was turned over to Stalin's execution squads, Japan was spared them to a great degree. Yes, Truman's boys did establish rape-garrisons, which still provide preteen opportunities for off-base financial fodder, but Japan's Mongoloids enabled them to be shielded from the anti-Europeoid backlash of the period.
It was a necessary sacrifice, and one that is now being remedied. International finance is exerting great pressure on Japan, and while birthrates are dropping, and obesity rising (though not as rapidly as in China), Japan's resistance to the invasive hammer is starting to break down. As in the co-option of currencies, printing presses, gunpowder, and cinematography, stolen technology is providing the vanguard; as in the co-option of subtler forms of culture, finance has found other ways in, and the fingerprints are on the knife.
Japan has its own long tradition of homonormative behavior, in the non-damaging sense, akin to the difference between getting drunk at home and getting drunk in the street, going to a swing party for adult members or molesting parishioners' children. Post-Judeo-Christian-invasion, the pagan Mongoloid and Europeoid notions of "free love" shifted from sustainable private business to arrogant infecting, resulting in a corresponding idiocy from those whose attempt at backlash would burn the forest to save the trees. To whit, the bad kind of buggery was the chink in the samurai's armor, and, where SOFA-protected American rapists and a filthy tax-cheating Disney couldn't accomplish the job, Hollywood-style infiltration is on course to succeed.
No one cares if Christian churches are "defiled," thus the air quotes, but when Buddhist ascetics are jailed for failure to teach the virtues of orgasmic anal sex, will the multicultural mind scent a foul shift in the breeze? When millennial mountaintop Shinto shrines are decorated with glow-in-the-dark phalluses for a state-mandated gay wedding, and the ashes of the honored elders discarded in favor of limited edition prints of Harriet Tubman, will the islands themselves quake?
McDonald's is easy to recognize as an offense in Japan; less so in the United States, where it is a similar offense, but a forgotten one--the noxious creature has become so entwined with its host that it is now considered emblematic of the culture it long-ago assisted in murdering. While it may yet be viewed as a travesty to watch fat little Asian kids gulp down shit-infested hamburger patties in Asia, no one blinks at it happening in the U.S. any longer. Identical strip malls and crumbling infrastructure weren't always an export, nor a feature, but we've forgotten that; we don't care anymore, because we don't believe there was ever anything that got destroyed. That's how deep it went.
The Jews have selected a Jew to replace iconic Japan, choosing the Ash (ke) Nazi Scarlett Johansson to play Motoko Kusanagi in the mockery of Ghost in the Shell. It is an utterly obscene, wholly artless act, much like rainbowed stars of David preempting Tokyo traffic. If we retain decency, we recoil, perhaps recalling a brown Lancelot.
Yet it is only one obscenity, dwarfed by the colossality of time. In the end, all places will be like Rothschild 17, sterile and subdividable, within easy walking distance of a restaurant built atop the ruins of the temple once owned by the god who killed the god who killed the god.
