1. What is "Lifestyle Reform"? (It may be helpful to look at the section right above "Death of a teacher" for this question, although you are not obligated to do so.) What was it for, what did it target? Name three things Chuei tried to change/discipline in his carrying out the lifestyle reform in Okinawa. 2. How did Chuei die, why, and what did his death developed into (as in what kind of sentiments or movements did his death produce)? 3. The reading says: There is no telling when the internal Other who maintains discipline will appear as an enemy. [. . .] But graver still, since the enemy is tied to the internal Other, the enemy may appear as one’s own self. Teruya’s tragedy lies in the fact that the Other born of his lifestyle reform suddenly appeared as his own self, to be killed as the ‘enemy Other’. The Teruya who lived for lifestyle reform and the Teruya as the ‘enemy Other’ are mutually exclusive. Herein lies the reason why Teruya’s death exists as a trauma for all those involved in lifestyle reform. Explain what it means that "Teruya’s tragedy lies in the fact that the Other born of his lifestyle reform suddenly appeared as his own self, to be killed as the ‘enemy Other’" using the words, "Okinawa/n," "Japan/ese," and "spy" retelling Chuei's story. (Keep it short). (Note that may be helpful for you to read this section -- the Japanese vigilante/military police during the Imperial wartime (a.k.a. Kempeitai) often arrested and sometimes executed non-Japanese, communists, Christians, and other non-normative citizens as spies.) 4. The article, "The story that won't fade away" is a very short article/website. Give a short summary, which includes: what were the reasons or forces that drove the Okinawans to mass suicide, and whose and what kind of stories are introduced in the web page? Why is Chuei's daughter's memory-story (about Chuei enjoying music, memory of "everyday life") important to be mentioned in this article?
