    it certainly warrants further investigation. if it is some kind of artistic statement, then all well and good (i guess). but if it is a genuine lack of political correctness - hmmm. food for thought.

    didn't the chinese start rioting a few years back over the reinstatement of a limited number of history textbooks which glossed over japanese genocidal atrocities.

    ha ha you can imagine the look on the faces of the sino-thai parents at some pomp-filled private school as "team banzai" takes to the field.

    Right that's it. I'm never bringing up my kids in LOS.

    Even the students look embarrassed. I can't believe any parents didn't kick up a stink.

    Re: Wtf

    but i do admire the japanese for their wisdom (sometimes).
    -----
    that's why i have stopped using the term "thais" in my criticisms. because it's not true of all, only of some. we want to help some thais but other thais are not helping (only helping themselves).

    i do not really consider myself as having a fixed nationality now as i think the world has evidently passed that phase, although humans still superficially cling to such notions.

    I might, but I'll definitely mark his card vis-a-vis all that bullshit that's around him.

    Same as I would in the UK.

    depends on what your question is.

    the context, the spirit in which it was done, what the nazis stood for, etc.

    all of these factors have some bearing on how it may be percieved.

    the nazi doctrine has been rejected by the civilised world as being inherently evil and therefore we have to ask: why are these kids dressed as nazis? for what purpose?

    once this question has been answered, the discussion can proceed.

    Re: Wtf

    What was the context and the spirit then mate?

    So it's how it's perceived more than how those doing it perceive it?

    So basically you can't dress up as anyone or anything that did bad things? Just 'cos you dress up as Jason or Michael Myers....doesn't mean you think like them....well not for me anyway...you.....can't be so sure!

    I can understand the hoo ha if they were teaching Nazi 'teachings' but dressing up as them? Stupid and to us 'shocking'....to those doing though....they probably quite like wearing the 'wicked' clothes!

    Right I'm off home to polish my son's jack boots and teach him to properly sieg heil and that!

    The civilised world which now commits as bad atrocities in many ways albeit under a different 'guise' than the Nazis did Fucked up world!
