一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

The people of South Korea and China are now living our (Japan’s) unstable past. When I lived in South Korea from 1980 to 1986, the thinking of people my age in South Korea was just as out of date as that of our grandparents. Now, I sense they’ve gotten as far as our parents. It’s as if they came to a dead stop after that rapid growth.

In comparison, the people our age in North Korea are in a time stratum that predates that of our great-grandparents.
