The reason for Japan’s movement towards right

I believe the reason Japan is moving towards the extreme right is because of the distorted historical education the leaders of Japan had received. In the past, this unprecedented rightist movement did not exist in Japan. This is because the past generations of Japanese people experienced firsthand the horrors of war that comfort women had experienced. They therefore did not make a big fuss about apologizing to the comfort women, and sincerely repented for their past war crimes. However, when the leaders of Japan, who received distorted historical educations, came into power, Japanese society turned to extreme rightist movement, and a result ended in the current plight.
