The Japanese lost their Confucian values when they manipulated them for their militaristic policies in the 19th and 20th centuries. In addition, in modern day Japan, Japanese scholars view Confucianism as a relic of the past rather than a philosophy. So in short the Japan we know today isnt Confucian at all and therefore should not be trusted.

"With the defeat of Japan in 1945, Confucian notions came to be regarded negatively because of their unfortunate appropriation by Inoue and other philosopher-ideologues. They had manipulated the core ethics of Confucian philosophy into a teaching of loyalty to the imperial state and self-sacrifice for the sake of its glory. Those Confucian philosophers whose writings had been most enthusiastic about Japan, and so easily appropriated — as was the case with Yamaga Sokō who had argued at one point in his multifaceted philosophical corpus, that Japan, not China, was the true Central Kingdom — have consequently suffered from significant neglect in the postwar period. By contrast, those earlier Confucians whose writings had disparaged Japan and celebrated China, such as those of Ogyū Sorai, rebounded from their former pariah status in jingoistic Japan to becoming the focus of repeated postwar studies. Usually, however, because of the overall feeling that Confucianism of any sort was more ideology than philosophy (and this was surely the most egregious legacy of its prewar appropriation) Confucianism has most frequently been interpreted simply as “thought” (shisō) or “ideology” (ideorogii), typically of a “feudalistic” sort. In other countries, including contemporary China, interpreters are reexamining Confucianism as a living philosophy of ongoing significance, but Japanese scholars have more viewed it as a historical artifact, not a vital philosophy. Instead, philosophy departments in most major Japanese universities today continue to define “philosophy” as western philosophy, finding relatively little place for the study of Confucianism under its rubric."

Lol Japanese philosophers are lemmings. When China was strong, they believed in Chinese philosophy. When the West was strong, they believed in Western philosophy. Sigh.

They should fashion their own Japanese philosophy. Surely they got some.

Its because they are from the old generation that worshipped white people. Coca Cola, McDonald's etc.

The new generation is far more patriotic but the people are still young and they need at least another 10 years to get senior positions in companies.

"In this way, the author sees Japan during the Meiji Restoration as spiritually "leaving Asia," since its two neighbors, China and Korea, do not appear to be embracing such reformation. Unless there are pioneers to reform these countries, they would be conquered and divided by external forces, as shown by the unequal treaties and threat of force pushed on Asian countries by the United States and other Western powers."

Damn son, what is this piece of news
JFC, it is 2021 and this was still allowed?..

You see? Thats why I say China needs another 10 yrs at least to get international respect.

Who is gonna respect China when it allowed for so long an obviously criminal and disgusting behaviour to happen? Who knows what other things are allowed that the rest of the civilised world has criminalized?

Good first step, however more needs to be done, especially on enforcing the sexual harassment laws

If that's the case then the USA would be the shame of the world with all the politicians and their pedophilia rings that come out every year. You're overreacting to a SCMP article that always throws shade on small things. Let the government handle it.
