Last year, the then Mr Arudou said this:
[…] he defied his doctorate training by calling Koreans an “emotional people,” and dismissed several counter-opinions as “stupid”
This year, the doctorately-trained Arudou said:
The majority of you stayed on because you were anesthetized by sex, booze, easy money and the freedom to live outside both the boxes you were brought up in and the boxes Japanese people slot themselves in.
But as your twilight years approach, you’ll look back in anger and wish you’d created a different bubble.
That looks like similar behaviour to me, and behaviour that has been committed to print for all eternity.
And in slightly related news, Robert McKinney of Otaru, a regular letter-writer to the Japan Times often voicing support for Dr Arudou’s columns, outs himself as one of Arudou’s losers – see the third letter down here.
