I mentioned nihonjinron in Post #74 only to ascertain more clearly how you had studied Nitobe in college. To discuss this here would involve too much thread drift, away from the main topic of how the philosophy of bushido and of aikido can be compared. If you want to discuss nihonjinron, I suggest you begin a new thread.
We are on the same page there, I also suggested a new thread some posts back. Thanks for making that clear. I wasn't sure if that was something that related to your view.
