The below are three of your quotes, the first two from one post the last from your rebuttle.
Now maybe you can see why your posts tend to send a confusing message. When questioned about your atatements by AJ you changed the time line to fit your statement.
"It was not a matter of corruption or any kind of grafts...yes, it is about graft"
"No, I did not contradict myself,"
After living and working in both Thailand and Japan I have found your comments spot on. Work is extremely important in Japan.
It is quite common to see the Japanese "salaryman" coming home very late at night after working long hours and than spending the rest of his evening in a local bar with many of his coworkers. Although I believe the Japanese male loves his family, his love does not have the same strength as the other Asian nations.
Japanese, a tungus branch (pelagic tungus) has been sharing same faith with other tungus peoples (littoral tungus, continent tungus such as Han, Turk, Mongol, Juchen, josen, Koguri, Khitan who are all of present Han chinese, Korean, Manchurian, Taezoo, northern vietnamese and some mogoloid nesians).
The common faith is the Ancestor Warship. The symbolic heritage is the remain, Kobun (Tumuli). This tumuli is presently seen from Ireland, north seashore Russian Yonnes river, eastern siberia, Manchuria, Korean peninsular, eastern sea board of china and Kyoto of Japan, to somewhere of pacific ocean.
Kobun contains their ancestor remain, teachings and costume, so that need some guardian. This guardians is Jinsa or shrine.
From this ancestorworship culture they developed two important values, one is the filial piety, and another is the fidelity to the sovereign.
Japan belongs to the latter, the totalitarianism. Korea, Chinese, Vietnamese more value to the former, the individualism.
The two are somethat conflicting concept and from time to time collided one another since last two millenia.
Confusicanism or buddhism exists side by side but no big influence in the shamanic value, that is seeminly modernized into modern pragmatic culture.
The corporate culture of Japan has been nourished from the fidelity and sometime became a part of nationalistic military aggression as seen in ww II (invasion into Korea and Manchuria).
Few know Japan has been ruled in Junta for last 1000 years. The military power needed unconditional loyalty and the sovereign fidelity was the pivotal idealogy to achieve the goal.
However such extremism is now dying out with the old generation and Japan recover the ration. Such spiritual movement is well illustrated by Kawabata literature. Japan has evolutionized since WW II.
Today's 30, 40s generations shout out "Remove Japanese smell out of our products !". With Japanized thing, they realized no place to stand in this globalized era.

i really understand your feelings about what youo talk about, i'm a farang living in thailand with my thai lady that i know since 15 years ago( and i'm 30 years old). I think with should star to separate about the therm "Farang" and start to think in persons...no matter where they come from. I also see in many places Foreigners having theses behaviors with thai girl normally much younger than them, and i feel so unconfortable and shy about my color of Skin in that moment. But i also know many thai men que may not do that in public, but have 3 or 4 diferents ladies...and lie to the 4 of them. So may be we have to be critic about the behavior of the persons...both Thai and Farang!!

Thai lady wrote:Just some comments from Thai lady side,
please be known that my comments are from only my experience.
Why do we look down Farang with dark woman? This is one of the most racist, elitist comments I have ever seen allowed to be posted here, and it has been here for how many YEARS?
- They don't have the minimum standard for their wife. ( I have no complain marrying with bar girl. What the reason do you choose her to be your wife? does she look hot? or what do you talk or discuss with each other after living together?) What right do you have to question other peoples activities?
- They express their love (or lust) improperly in the public for example Big Farang guy touched his dark hot Thai g/f in the BTS. Sounds like jealousy to me!
(in my humble opinion, some Farang guys may think Thailand is 'Land of Freedom' so you can do whatever you want.. even try something you've never dare to do it in your life before) You are not humble, you are both arrogant and ignorrant. (probably frustrated as well, ar you "satisfied" with your rant?)
We can't refuse that our country is well-known in term of entertainment place; bar, massage, woman, sex. In the same time, we still have our own culture, tradition and manner. So, before you do something so wild, pls stop to think for a while.. what if here is your country.
Looks like a quote from a more recent poster, recently stopped.
May I suggest that the entertainment refered to is considered by outsiders to represent your culture and methods of entertainment! !
Perhaps we respect your culture so much! I mean, number 4 had something like 130 wives and 87 children, or have I missed something?

thailand is one of the best countries I have been to. I am not talking about pattaya but the real Thailand, what a wonderful country
I agree with Kevin.
Beautiful Prostitutes are not the Thailand I love. There is much more.
