This is the point of the Olympics. Come it, hold a carrot in front of people. Demand agreement with all global narratives, Holocuast being just one of them, never mind that your nation has been culturally isolated and never learned nerfed reason to keep people happy.

To the Japanese it must be very strange to not approach the holocuast rationally.
