Ideological Subversion has four steps: Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, and Normalization. The demoralization occurred during WWII during the air raids that the Japanese were so used to. They still believed that their Emperor would be victorious, even though they were constantly being attacked just because of the culture and complete faith in the Emperor. When the bombs were dropped, it caused destabilization because all sense of safety was taken from the citizens, and they lost so many lives. Crisis happened when the people of Japan tried to get help after the bomb. There was disaster and death everywhere, and many had nothing and no one left to call their own. When the emperor surrendered, it was the start of normalization. The people of Japan accepted that they had lost the war and knew that their leader would need to accept terms from the winning side.
