“Japanese only!” Japan racism.

The KMT had many strands, and the Nanking govt. was still fighting those unconnected with the CPC even after 1927.

Yes, and here we return to the Higher Buddhism.
There are two Buddhisms. One is the Higher Buddhism – a philosophy at least as old as Nagarjuna (look him up), and which can be comprehended in materialist terms (although it did not use the term). It is expressed in essays by the writer Lafcadio Hearn.
The other is the Buddhism we know as the religion – with reincarnation, transmigration, state collaboration, and all the religious baloney. Surprisingly, the Higher Buddhism came first, and by definition was never an option for wide dissemination and adoption by princes or emperors, or modern states.
When a Himalayan hermit told Alexandra David-Neel that reincarnation is bunk, that’s how we know he belonged to the Higher Buddhism.
To put it in a nutshell, in Higher Buddhism the cosmos is one, including us, and all distinctions such as “oneself” are for purposes of daily life in society. They have no reality in cosmic terms.
