So bear with me guys since for today I am going to translate all of the information that I have on Inejiro Asanuma (1898 - 1960), the japanese politician most widely known for being assassinated by Otoya Yamaguchi with his katana.
(1/?)
(2/?) Inejiro Asanuma, born in December 27th, 1898 in Miyake, Tokio.
He started his political journey joining ultra-nationalist youth circles that emerged after WW2 in Japan. He became a featured member in such a circle: Builders Alliance, founded in 1919.
(3/?) Asanuma began to take interest into socialism, which he considered should go hand-in-hand with japanese nationalism, being interested in authors such as Ikki Kita. He called this first version of his ideology "nationalsocialism" (which has nothing to do with the german ver)

What do we think about the rise of this new political entity, called “the civilizational state”? Several #IR works offer guidance regarding the relationship between #civilizations and the liberal international order. A (long!) thread--->
1) The discussion often starts with an understanding of civilizations as culturally distinct units. For Huntington, a consensus-based liberal order is not durable because civilizational differences are incommensurable.

2) But as Huntington’s critics have shown, civilizations have porous borders and are internally pluralistic. Katzenstein’s trilogy, for example, shows that there are more trans-civilizational engagements and inter-civilizational interactions.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
