Japan and Korea VS the rest of Asia (modern day)

So basically looking at Japan and South Korea, they are doing pretty well. They are extremely westernized, have post-industrial economies and successful business that deal all over the world - their electronics are respected everywhere. They have extremely high standards of living comparable and education to the most developed parts of the West.

The rest of Asia doesn't, though. Even China which is usually grouped with these 2 in terms of "Oriental" or having high culture worthy of respect... it's a shithole full of slaves who make cheap replaceable plastic crap and live in toxic slums. India, SEA and the Stans of course are totally fucked, full of desperate poverty and constant war. Even eastern Russia which is more or less "European" seems like an awful place to live.

So what the fuck? How and why did Japan and Korea survive to become "honorary westerners" and thrive while the entire rest of the continent sank into shit?

Powder Monkeys during the Age of Sail

A powder monkey manned naval artillery guns as a member of a warship's crew, primarily during the Age of Sail. His chief role was to ferry gunpowder from the powder magazine in the ship's hold to the artillery pieces. The function was fulfilled by boy seamen 12 to 14 years of age.

This is as much as our wikipedia-education tells us of history.

But, intuitively... you and I both know... these kids were orphan sex slaves for sailors on long voyages. Amiright or amiright?

Some sad shit.

So in WWI after Russia started going Commie the rest of the allied nations sent forces to help out the Tsar, which makes sense Tsarist Russia was an allied nation.

But what if instead of Russia the socialist revolution had started in Germany as I've heard some say there was a legit possibility of happening? Do you think the allies would still have backed the Imperial faction or since they were an enemy would the allies have tried to help the socialists take down the Kaiser? Or would they have just sat it out and let the Germans fight themselves?

Forgive me /his/torians, I'm a little drunk.

Forgive me again, because I'm going to open Pandora's Box of AltHis.

The war in Europe is drawing to a close, the American atom bomb is nearing completion, or it's already finished and we're waiting until August to drop them on Japan. Everybody is poised to make a deal with the devil and cut Europe up into Allied/Soviet spheres of influence, except Patton, who wants to rearm the Germans and drive the Russians back to Moscow. He's ignored, the Iron Curtain is drawn, and the Cold War begins. But what if he wasn't and the Allies charge into Slavic lands?

Next scenario: September, 1950. UN troops push the North Koreans all the way up to the No-No line at the Chinese border near Dandong on the Yalu River. Mao says, "YOU FUKN DONE IT NOW!" and a million Chinese pour over the border and start knocking Yankees and Commonwealth troops back south. Hero of the Pacific Theater in WWII and Commander of US Forces in the Far East Douglas McArthur clenches his corncob pipe in his teeth and begs Truman to drop atomic bombs on Chinese cities to get the Chinks out of his war with the Shovelheads. Truman snaps that he's trying to avoid another World War (remember, the Soviets had had nuclear capabilities for over a year now), not start one. But what if he'd agreed with McArthur and Beijing had gone up in an atomic firestorm?

Not relevant to OP, but you should be aware that three-mile never went critical and leaked negligible radiation. It did scare everyone shitless, but it actually wasn't an environmental disaster. Fukushima would be a better example. I lived just a couple miles from the 3-mile island plant most of my life. Otherwise neat, if speculative, post.

This always struck me as kind of odd. How did Islam spread to South East Asia. When you look at it on a map it doesn't really seem to make much sense. I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about here but surely Hinduism was in a much better position to spread from India rather than Islam?

Again, totally clueless, but it just seems to be a bit of an anomaly to me.

the difference between muslims and normal typical immigrants is that they go to an Islamic school and pray 5 times a day, so they are very versed in the islamic culture regardless of where they live.

You only need to go back tot he crusades to see the attrocities muslims put other religious people living in the same society as them, they rode horses from europe to israel because muslims where castrating christians and jews.

So although normal immigrants will immerse themselves in their local culture and abide by normal government most muslims dont, they operate under sharia, they usually have no contact with local government and dont participate in local culture or education, they go to islamic school and depend on other muslims for welfare.
Although they live on the same land they dont recognise your government as being their government.

Muslims are very dangerous because they are like a swarm just spreading over the world right now all thanks to Bin Laden stirring up another war creating hundreds of thousands of refugees.

of course this is being very general, i do know some people who say they are muslim but partake in the eating of non halal food and have sex with the same sex, but they are very much a minority.
In Australia whole communities have been converted from working class/poor people to Moderatly wealthy muslims, all the stores are muslim, all the butchers are halal, they have a loud speaker to announce prayer and they have huge mosques all over the place.

The only reason people don't like them is because of their desire to not fully integrate with local populations and retain their own customs. It's one of the reasons they have flourished in the USA, because we were founded (partly) by people who came here to practice their own customs unmolested. Obviously that's not always been true, but that's the predominating culture anyway.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloody_Benders

The Bloody Benders were a family of serial killers who owned an inn and small general store in Labette County of southeastern Kansas from 1871 to 1873. The family consisted of John Bender, his wife Mrs. Bender (later referred to as Kate, Sr., since no one knew her given name), son John, Jr., and daughter Kate. While Bender mythology holds that John and Kate were brother and sister, contemporary newspapers reported that several of the Benders' neighbors have stated that they claimed to be married, possibly a common law marriage.

They are believed to have killed at least a dozen travelers before their crimes were discovered and the family fled, with their fate uncertain

The usual methodology behind death by firing squad, is no one shooter would know if the bullet that killed was his own. Indeed, there was often one rifle with no bullet in the chamber. There was always a chance that the shooter would avoid being the tool of state sponsored murder.

With the NKVD shit was completely different. Awakened in the middle of the night, taken into a dark dead end room and tapped once in the back of the head. A single gunman, a singular responsibility.

NKVD were some dark ass mofos.

Looking on a few good books on Imperial and post-Imperial Japan.

More specifically, something that covers :

  1. Japan from 1900-1945 (covering economic, social and political issues, hopefully something that talks about the econmic factors that drove them to war),

2. What war time Japan was like economically, socially, politically, etc

3. Something about the Japanese occupation of China (including Manchuria and the more fucked up stuff that happened in Nanjing)

4. Something about post-imperial Japan, how US neocolonialsm affected Japan in the years after the war, etc.


If you could hit me up with some PDF's that would be chill af. Thanks for your time

Wiki is considered the best and most up to date resource in some fields, taxonomy for example.

However I find it particularly bad for an objective understanding of history. I've read wiki pages over and over, and noticed the changes as years pass by. One can see the active effect of trolls on any contemporary controversy.
