C. abolition of samurai privileges. /The samurai were losing much of their military significance during industrialization and were, mostly, a drag on society. [ Sure, they were patrons of art and all that, but the idea of abolishing inherent privilege was necessary to push Japan into the modern era. Enough young persons, mostly men, of the samurai class had the means and education to float above these tumultuous changes and ended up at the top echelons of the modernizing military by the beginning of the century. And they didn't have to be drafted, they volunteered. As Wikipedia says so succinctly, "The Imperial Japanese Armies were conscripted, but many samurai volunteered to be soldiers and many advanced to be trained as officers. Much of the Imperial Army officer class was of samurai origin and they were highly motivated, disciplined and exceptionally trained." ] Auto answered|Score 1|Controler|Points 3928|User:
