Mr Arudou has published
a trailer to this month’s Just Be Cause, and my initial thoughts were that I hope the Japan Times has had a lawyer read it over…
he claimed there is no evidence that the Japanese government sponsored the program
Wrong. He disputes the details of the system, specifically the coercion element.
suggested these exploited women were (and still are) a "necessary" outlet for a military’s primal urges
The "still are" is also wrong, unless you take the view that Japan’s adult entertainment business employees are the equivalent of sex slaves. Actually, there is definitely issues of human trafficking and the Entertainer Visa, but let’s wait to see what kind of equating goes on…
He has also presented us with a case study of how to keep people like him in check
I wonder if he’ll contradict last month’s opinion on censorship?
BTW, searching Google, I find an interesting article on the subject from the Telegraph, written by an ex-prostitute.
Another interesting thought: can we call soldiers conscripted during wartime "murder slaves"?
