Japanese Fascism?[edit]

In the past, Japanese and Western social scientists claimed that Japanese fascism existed. However, present-day scholars like George M. Wilson and Gregory J. Kasza, argue that the concept of Japanese fascism is mistaken. For example, Kasza emphasized that Japaneses did not stress loyalty to a single leader or to a single party.

Payne, Stanley G. (2001). A history of fascism, 1914-1945 (reprinted ed.). Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge. pp. 328–330. ISBN 9781857285956.

Those authors are welcome to their opinions, but most historians today continue, as has been the standard for a long time, to regard the Japanese Empire of the 1931-1945 period as fascist. You will find many sources for this, and modern-day revisionism does not make the other authors wrong. You can state that such and such authority does not consider him a fascist, but the other cites must stand.HammerFilmFan (talk) 14:29, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
