39 - Imperial Japan pt. 9 / Spyclopedia #3 - the Many Identities of Nisshō Inoue, pt. 3, or, the Patriotic Terrorist

Today we discuss Nisshō Inoue's many, many connections with ultranationalist terrorism, and the attacks he planned in with the Blood Oath Corps Incident. This was an extreme plan that, were it to have succeeded, would have assassinated 20 of the top zaibatsu executives and politicians in Japan. They managed to kill a central banker as well as a Mitsui executive. The high-profile trial allowed Inoue and his accomplices to present their case to the public. Finally, we discuss the fallout of the Blood Oath Corps Incident on Taisho democracy. Song: Runaway Horses by Philip Glass
