Max von Schuler-Kobayashi is an ex-spy who hunted communists in post WWII Japan. He has recently been publishing books about the relationships between Japan, America, and the Korean Peninsula. 

One of the goals of today's podcast is to discuss how the social relationships between Japan, America, and the Korean Peninsula are playing a major role in geo-politics.  We also talk about protest culture, and how a lack of of protest culture is giving Japanese youth a global edge.
