I can’t believe I have to say this in 2020, but Imperial Japan was worse than the British Empire.
#FunFact The Communist Party of India also believed that Imperial Japan was worse than the British Empire.

“Only the utterly blind or the contemptible agents of the fascists will deny this plain truth.”
Burma was a British colony until the Japanese invaded.

The Burmese ended up working with the British and Chinese to liberate their country from Japanese occupation.

The Burmese clearly understood which was worse. Why can’t you?

Very cool to mock a choice all British colonies in Asia were faced with, isn’t it?
The formerly colonized peoples of Asia have no right to discuss which WWII side was worse even though Axis collaborators are being glorified by fascists as we speak.
Only Asians had experience with both British colonialism and Japanese fascism, but we aren’t allowed to debate which was worse because “both sides were bad.”

Woke.

The Ardern government has overseen increased poverty, housing insecurity and starved public services of funding and resources. It has attacked democratic rights, strengthened the police; demonised immigrants; and intensified preparations for war.
