While I have been working, in detail, on such things as Japanese militarism and the Japanese decision for war in 1941, I confess I don't know how that relates to the phrase "reminiscent of the western construct of the totalitarian portrait of the Orient during the colonial era.". Who are the totalitarians here? I am less familiar with Korean history than Chinese or Japanese, but liberal democrats seem rather rare.
In like manner, "x-basher", unless linked to something specific, probably would be better as simple X-advocate. --Howard C. Berkowitz 21:56, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
