Patriotism and pacifism.

Japan's conservative government chipped away at two pillars of the country's postwar pacifism, requiring schools to teach patriotism and upgrading the

Requiring schools to teach patriotism is anti-pacifist? Interesting.

I'm still with you on the whole good grammar crusade, though.

There's a difference between a typographical error and a grammatical one. My computer is currently doing something freaky with the cursor, which hops erratically as I type. I have to be careful, or I will have one word in the middle of another three lines up from where it was supposed to be.
