I’ve suspended my Facebook account. Yesterday I ended up on the brink of a row comparing Nazi Germany to Imperial Japan, with a well-known psychotic readily carping as is his wont about how Imperial Japan, east Asia’s greatest aggressor in the 20th century, actually might have got something of a bum rap. Certainly it can’t be compared to Nazi Germany. Well, no it can’t, and there’s no need, it was bloody awful in its own right, be it industrialising sex trafficking on a truly international scale, to bio-medical experiments with Unit 731.
But more to the point, where the fuck is it going that I can be entering debates about the relative moral awfulness of utter fascist bastard scum at either end of the planet?
