Nick Kapur wrote about the post-war student movement in Japan, mentioning that during the Allied occupation of 1945-52, the Japanese Communist Party was originally a “beloved party”, but in 1950 it was Stalin’s criticism of being too weak was echoed by an editorial in China’s “People’s Daily”, and he had to switch to a violent revolution, mobilizing his “cannon fodder members – college students and Koreans in Japan – to drop firebombs on police boxes and enter the mountains. Organize the ” Mountain Village Task Force “.” but:
Most of the All Students’ Federation members fully supported the Japanese Communist Party’s plan to instigate a Mao-style revolution… But Japan in the early 1950s was very different from China in the late 1940s, and what the students faced was impossible Task. They were sent deep into the mountains without training, food, supplies, or weapons, in an attempt to form a revolutionary army based on Mao Zedong’s dogma about mobilizing “peasants.” But what they met in Japan were well-educated peasants who, on the whole, were loyal to this or that conservative party. Most of the students came back in despair after a few days: nothing to eat, no place to live.
