New English-language euroblog, the Deutsche Cum Grano Salis, has an interesting series of translated excerpts from recent Deutsche publications, in explication of what the blogger, Hans Beeman, calls the "gutmensch" phenomenon. He seems to be talking about a phenomenon more familiar to me from the Japanese example - the pacifist nation-as-victim mentality, and the tendency among its practitioners to overgeneralize this "lesson" to all warfare.
