Genuine question: Does the concept of the "Hippocratic Oath" apply in Japanese medicine?

HK freedom fighters are already engaging 4th Generation Warfare against the despotic CCP state. We, the free peoples of the world, must do all we can to aid this campaign. Make Beijing feel real pain!

I think the image has been "over exposed". But yeah, I'm seeing too much of her these days.

Posted in: Those who have been teleworking have shown a big change in their mind-sets. We see this as an opportunity to solve the issue of population concentration in Tokyo and hope to introduce measures to promote that. See in context

Too many Japanese like being crammed in with other Japanese. They feel uneasy if there isn't a literal herd to follow. It's not all people of course, but a significant part of the population. I can't count the amount of times I've seen beautiful rolling countryside with a solitary house or tiny village in it, only for some Japanese person to pipe up "Sabishii! Soko sumitakunai!"

Private property rights, huh? Funny how Europeans/Americans didn't give a fig for the private property rights of native Americans back in the day and seized an ENTIRE CONTINENT BY FORCE. The times are a changin' my friends, better get used to it.

Posted in: What every fiance should know before meeting his father-in-law See in context

The correct thing to say to a prospective father-in-law is

"Domine, filiam tuam in sanctum matrimonium ducere volo... Benedic nos, quaeso."

"Sir, I wish to lead your daughter into holy matrimony... Please give us your blessings."

This is all the "logical" conclusion of Enlightenment liberalism: it removes values from the political realm and society eats itself. Enjoy.

I pray for them all to find peace and happiness. We are all the same, we are one. End these petty distinctions of race, creed and class.

Posted in: The Dixie Chicks officially change their name to The Chicks See in context

So, the Dixie Chicks will remove Dixie from their name, huh?

Such a magnanimous decision only begs the question (by their own hair-brained standards) that their remaining name, "Chicks" marginalizes women.

Inevitably, all that's left is "DUH" . Maybe they'll extend it to DUHHH.... with proper intonation to reveal their super-intellectual zeitgeist genuflecting. Sooner or later, one of the three will discover zhe's not white and not a woman. Then the circle will be complete.

Hallelujah!

Joe Rogan has been going on about this for a while. Will try it.

Joe Rogan isn't tall enough for this ride.

While what he did is reprehensible, it is more than likely he has undiagnosed mental health problems. We know how cold this society is for people who fall outside the narrow defonition of what passes for "normal" here, and by the time you're in your 50s, well, a lifetime of that treatment, can mean someone's heart going to a very dark place.

New style of work will inevitably need to new styles of exploitation. Workers need to collectivize and stand up to unscrupulous employers who seek to use technology to extract ever more output from them.

Zoos have no place existing in putative first world, "advanced" countries.

"But" you say, "The animals habitats are being destroyed so zoos are the only safe places for them."

Then I say, "Stop destroying their natural habitats in the first place. Curb your insane lust for economic growth and learn to live much more modestly."
