What makes people/civilizations from Islands so tough? All throughout history, smaller Island nations have been the most vigorous, tough and ruthless in their conquests. Hell, Britain owned 1/4 of the world at one point I believe.
Japan’s history includes probably the most disciplined warriors to EVER walk the Earth. Pre WW2 Japanese warriors would rather give up their own life than surrender, seeing surrender as an unforgivable shame.
The brave men and women who set sail to find other lands for a more prosperous life have all but died out in this generation. There are many who still set sail for their country, proudly serving their nation with utmost bravery. In this time, we have found all there is to explore in land mass. I wish I could be alive in the future for a time where we get to explore and colonize other planets and sail the stars.
