Rebellion in Japan quote of the day

“Japanese children soon learn, however, that to resist the system is to battle an army of friendly shadows. Authority resides with no one, and to change the collective habits of the group requires an impossible effort. To escape or rebel is to sever social contacts with those who provide daily companionship and the warmth of social life. Perhaps because this identification occurs early in the child’s life, Japanese exhibit higher levels of social order and less ambivalence toward authority than do Americans”
