This comic is a bit ironic.
Roosevelt stood for basically everything Miyazaki would have opposed. Theodore Roosevelt championed masculinity and power through colonialist imperialism. He reveled in war, claiming that the adventure of invasion was an assertion of manliness. His policies lead to devastation of the Philippines.
Miyazaki’s works include female protagonists and plots that celebrate their femininity, as well as anti-war sentiments. Miyazaki has been considered “anti-Japanese” by his own country for refusing to deny Japanese war crimes of WWII. Studio Ghibli even produced “The Grave of the Fireflies,” one of the most heart-breaking and staunchly anti-war animations ever created.
I’m sure this was unintentional, but you’ve definitely displayed that you don’t care to learn the beliefs of the “inspirational” historical figures you quote."
