Herbert Bix: Can't We Get Over the Millenarian Impulses in Our Traditions?

Here is an excellent article from an excellent historian, Herbert Bix, whose book on the Showa emperor's active involvement in Japan's imperial wars was one of reasons I began to study Japanese literature/history. Bix has several other articles posted on http://hnn.us that are worthy of a look.

In this article, Professor Bix refers to the "top ideologues" who inform the President's policy-making, many of whom actually write for hnn.us, including Daniel Pipes. I wonder only if Professor Bix is aware that he is making joint contributions with these "ideologues."
