There are two types of people: those who try to determine the facts and make objective judgments as much as possible, and those who accept only what they want to believe as fact and will never accept what they do not want to believe as fake news.
Many Russia-loving Russians do not want to believe the news that Putin is unjustly invading Ukraine and committing atrocities because they do not want to believe it. On the contrary, they believe the utterly fake news that Putin is fighting a just war to overthrow the neo-Nazi Zelensky regime as the only truth.
Most Russians listen to both sides of the news, since they can watch the news on the Internet as well as on state TV, but they don't want to believe the news that Russia is being demonized, so they refuse to accept it as fake news, and believe only the false news that Russia is fighting for justice.
In other words, many Russia-loving Russians do not care about the truth or facts, but accept only what they are emotionally comfortable with, and by placing themselves in such a fictional world of lies, they are able to escape from the unbelievable and fearful reality that many Ukrainians are suffering from the hell caused by the Russian military attack.
People who value objective facts, no matter how cruel and unacceptable they may be, will honestly face the harsh reality and sincerely try to figure out what they can do about it.
On the other hand, those who only believe what they want to believe will never face facts sincerely that they do not want to believe or that are inconvenient for them, but will assume that they are false or pretend that they do not exist.
In other words, they deny the truth and reality, pushing them into a world of fiction, and on the contrary, they try to assume the world of fiction, which is completely covered with lies, is the true reality.
Therefore, such people lie with impunity. Trump is a typical example.
He tried to convince many people of the completely baseless falsehood that the election was rigged, as if it were the truth. He also declared that the numerous crimes he had committed, such as tax evasion, were all fake news and completely untrue.
It seems that there are many similar fiction-loving people in Japan too who do not care about the truth or facts and only want to believe what they want to believe.
They believe that Japan, such a wonderful and beautiful country, could never have made such a horrible mistake, that all the mistakes during the past world wars were fake news exaggerated by the enemy, that only anti-nationals brainwashed by the enemy would speak ill of their own country, and that proud Japanese people would never be fooled by such fake news, exactly the same way as patriotic Russians today.
It is obvious to anyone in any country that many patriotic Russians who refuse to believe the Russian atrocities in Ukraine are so ignorant and stupid turning a blind eye to reality. The very same thing is being done by the leading members of the political parties in power in our country and many patriotic people who support them. However, they may not realize how foolish that is on their own.
And now it has come to light that such foolish patriotic politicians in our country have been duped by the enemy's agents into engaging in traitorous acts, helping the criminal organization in preying on the Japanese people and sending much of their wealth to foreign countries, instead of being patriotic to nation. However, these people are not interested in the truth, and they will never face up to the fact of how many Japanese have suffered by the crime of the organizations they were a part of, nor do they feel any torment of conscience.
In other words, facts and reality mean nothing to them, and they value only the ideals in the fictions they believe in.
Hitler tried to force such fictional ideas to become reality and plunged the real world into hell.
People who refuse to face reality with sincerity will surely make the real world a hellish place.
And every unjust and unreasonable act begins with a lie.
The Nazi invasion of Poland began with the outright lie that Polish Germans were being persecuted.
Russia's invasion of Ukraine was also started under the pretext of the outright lie that the Zelensky regime was a Nazi.
The Trump supporters' takeover of the Capitol was also initiated by the outright lie that the vote was rigged.
And in Japan, too, the prime minister lied with impunity to cover up its abuse of power, and in order to get foreign criminal organizations to cooperate in the election, the head of the police force was lined up with loyal retainers of the prime minister, and he arranged for them not to be criminally prosecuted at all, no matter how much the criminal organizations preyed on Japanese citizens, took their property, transferred it to their home countries, and caused serious damage to the Japanese people. To top it all off, he even tried to have the Attorney General on retainer to avoid prosecution for his own wrongdoings, but he failed in the end, and many of his schemes went awry. Now, the politicians who rode on the prime minister's coattails, praised the foreign criminal organizations, and facilitated their escape from capture, are being pursued for their misdeeds, as mentioned above. As already mentioned, these people, who have no intention of sincerely facing the truth, seem determined to continue lying with impunity to the very end.
It has long been said that a liar is a thief, now it may be no exaggeration to say that liars bring about the beginning of the destruction of mankind.
In order to avoid such a tragic situation, at least in our country, I strongly believe that we need to start by never allowing politicians to tell lies of any kind.
