[Ebook] Majalah Langka: [1970 – 10 Oktober] – General Imamura and The Early Period of Japanese Occupation
Most post-war studies of Japanese policies in Southeast Asia during world war II are colored by the “moralistic: biases of their authors, which include apologists as well as critics. But in fact many of the situations and events for which criticism is levelled at the Japanese occupying forces arise not from anything specifically Japanese but from the general nature of a military government of occupation in wartime : whether that government is established by a “fascist” nation, as in the case of Japan, or a “democratic” one, as in the case of the United States. Military governments of occupation generally tend toward absolutism, and their rulers, backed by overwhelming force, often display an air of superiority and arogance toward their subjects. Aid to combat units engaged in prosecuting the war becomes the supreme concer, while the civil right of the civilian pupulation are neglected. Unilization of the pre-existing form of government in the occupied areas is preferred to imposing political and social changes, but often military governors find themselves facing barriers of cultural and linguistic difference which separate them from the governed. How much succes the governors have in overcoming these barriers depends to a large extent on the personal character and training of the key administrative personal. And however successful a military government may be in this regard, it is bound to invite resentment and hatred from the governed sooner or later.
