“I’ve read one of the most shocking and enlightening books in my life… let me share with you what I’ve learned“ If you study about samurai culture and history, you'd most certainly come across “武士道 Bushido,” the way of the warriors. I’m sure you know about it as the “samurai code” that made the samurai stronger and bolder, and there are many movies, video games, and music that praise it as something great. ...But what if I told you that cherishing Bushido might be ruining Japan? I was very shocked to read this book, 「日本人」という嘘 (The lie of Japanese people) written by a social psychologist professor Yamagishi Toshio, where he explains that “Japan must discard Bushido right away if we want to have a brighter future.” So today, I would love to share with you what I’ve learned from this book, and also my opinions as a Japanese man studying multiple traditional cultures, by summarizing the content into 3 sections. 1. Japan is a “strange” groupism (collectivist) society 2. Bushido is the virtue of a groupism (collectivist) world 3. Should we really discard Bushido? By watching this video, you will be able to deepen your understanding towards the characteristics of Japanese people, and find out about the fundamental reasons for many of the social problems in Japan today. However the definition of Bushido (and also groupism/individualism) is quite ambiguous and even among the Japanese, there are many people with different ideas. In this video, I will fully stick to the definition explained in this book to avoid confusion. I understand that this is a very complicated topic, so I hope that you can comment your thoughts below so we can have a constructive discussion together. ●「日本人」という、うそ: 武士道精神は日本を復活させるか (ちくま文庫) https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/448043304X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_ZPPYKZFATH20C4X7CSHK [Time codes] 0:00 Let's START! 2:32 Japan is a "strange" groupism society 14:55 Bushido is the virtue in a "groupism" world 19:54 Should we really discard Bushido? 23:09 Today's conclusion ▼Who is Shogo?
