SG: so far you have posted some personal opinions as controversial analogies. Unless you can cite reams of academic/ethnographic material to substantiate your opinion, I would prefer that this thread move in a different direction.

Any other comments?

Just so it's clear, can you give an example of what would be "ethnographic" material? I have a hard time believing a scholar studying Japan over Japanese people who have lived in Japan there all their lives.

How about you just drop it with the controversy instead?

What's controversial about quoting Japanese students talking about their own comparison of Japan and America?

If you really want to drop controversy, how can this thread even amke sense? It's about comparing societies asking if one culture promotes "better" people than another - what part of that isn't controversial in and of itself?

Here's an idea: why not focus your comments on your own culture rather than another that you only have very limited first hand experience with? That might work.

I think a judicious cool down might be in order.
