Many Japanese people, especially highly educated people, think that Japan has learned freedom, liberalism, or things like that from the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. However, the Japanese people are often surprised that the governments of the US, France, and the UK often do something which the Japanese government could absolutely not. I just read an article about a terrorism suspect in France, Kamel Daoudi, who had owned the French nationality but was divested of it because of suspicion of a terrorism. It is completely impossible that the Japanese government deprives the nationality of the Japanese people for whatever reason, because the US, France, and the UK once taught the Japanese people that it was impossible.

In addition, Kamel Daoudi has been kept a punishment of deportation for years. After he served his term of imprisonment in France, he has still been watched by the police and forced to stay in France and apart from stations, freeways, and such; though, the French government is bearing all of his expenses. That was once often taken by the Soviet government, which was called banishment to Siberia. It must be old-fashioned in Russia, but still active in France. In Japan, such kind of treatment is absolutely impossible because the US, France, and the UK once taught the Japanese people that it was impossible.

If you want to eat the best French dishes, you have to go to Tokyo. Like that, you have to go to Japan if you want to enjoy western liberalism.
