>Elsewhere in the PDF there was a mention from the Kirishitan Monogatari which stated that the Christians had big noses as well. While likely a description of White people from a Japanese perspective, big-nosed merchants always make me raise my guard.
:DDDDDDDDD fucking oy vey
Now it is true that Japanese people have small round noses overall, almost if a tad not fully matured during childhood. In comparison, Whites might seem to possess bigger noses. But the collusion of big noses, merchants and shilling for a very progressive religion seems to raise a certain number of red flags. Not to say that I would not expect real Christian proselytes to present themselves as merchants, at least I could give them that. This sounds like kikes shilling for their own form of Buddhism in the US and Europe.
>Forgot to say that the image I posted is a caricature of a White American from the late Tokugawa period, relevant to the section that I mentioned the Kirishitan Monogatari in.
"American" you say? Well, it's a caricature so it's complicated to know which traits the author wanted to exaggerate. The thick overall facial hair (eyebrows and beard), the very long dropping nose... those big red lips, the beady and perhaps dark eyes, and those strange and remarkable ear lobes... could it be?
There is some text, it might hold interesting information.
This quickly bloomed in my mind but it depends a lot on how much Ashahara supported this or even if he denied any involvement.
The English translation added interviews with members of the Aum sect. Assuming these were honest collections of opinions, I still find it interesting that the translation staff might have found it too risky to give a voice to the victims, who for the most part were precisely the people the sect seemed to be trying to save (which again makes the attack strange, not for the district but for the specific targeting of random salarymen). It is written that the book was said to be one-sided.
The translation was abridged. This is most unfortunate.
Did they barge into a hipster's condo there? I almost expected seeing a Nintendo Switch there too.
>Minna no Nihongo II
Nevertheless my limited knowledge about this sect begs of me to be cautious about this stuff. At least it does not sound as crazy as Scientology does. I totally understand the Russian authorities' concerns with a sect that has a background in terrorism against people. You would expect (and wish for) the same if ISIS openly set up shop down your street.
