Posted in: What's your stance on the new law to criminalize the planning of serious crimes, which has provoked large protests by opponents who say it could lead to abuse of power and curtail freedom of expression? See in context

State tyranny is well and alive and this law opens doors to even more of it. And of course as always it's just for our safety... Anyone still buying into this? I am surely not!

Isn't Tokyo already polluted enough? The noise and air pollution will increase immensely with this careless approach. More sickness, more distressed people.. But it's all worth it for the sake of a 'growing economy', that's what counts, right?

Horrific... I have a 32 years young Down Syndrome daughter and she has been and still is a light in my life!

But here is the thing... now that it's clear that this guy had been hospitalized you can be sure that he was on some kind of drugs. All the recent German attackers had been hospitalized and on some medication. And further... if you look deeper into the background of any mass killer the vast majority was medicated!

This is clear evidence what these drugs create, especially in people who are already desperate for one or another reason. Desensitized, Soul less people who loose any sense for themselves and others. And this has to stop!

Posted in: IOC decision to pass the buck on Russia doping ban sparks backlash See in context

A cowardly decision that sends the wrong message. Banning the Russians would have had an impact on any other potential doping practices. I guess money and politics meant more then morals... as so often.

Posted in: When you were a child, what profession did you aspire to? And did you actually join that profession when you became an adult? See in context

Car racing driver... well, I didn't make a profession out of it but nonetheless I did quite a bit of car and motorbike racing back in Germany. And I was good in it. Healer, Channeler, Author and Lecturer sounds a bit different, right?

Posted in: Are you tired of reading or hearing about the World War II sex slave issue? See in context

What I am tired about is the constant denial of the issue by the Japanese government! I am tired to see the inability of a heartfelt, honest admittance of this horrible crime. Japan should learn from Germany who stood and still stands up to their war crimes without trying to hide...

Posted in: Are you proud of your nationality, whatever it is? See in context

I'd like to see a world where nationality is not even part of our life anymore, just causing division and judgements. We are all one with all our differences of course, but that's the beauty of diversity. I am born German and I like and dislike aspects of this culture, that's it.

Posted in: Opponents of immigration in Japan, particularly political conservatives and members of right-wing groups, argue that Japan is a single ethnic group and cannot easily absorb people from other cultures. See in context

You find the same arguments of right wing people in Germany as well... where I was born. And in many other countries as well. People who are holding these believes are just full of fear and very insecure. In my view Japan would not just be able to accept and integrate people from all kind of nations but also benefit a lot from embracing them. It's time to let go the mindset of separation, Japan is no exception!

Posted in: What do you think of Japanese TV programs? Seen anything you like? See in context

Well, if there wouldn't be some interesting travel programs now and again I would not turn the TV on at all.

Posted in: The selection of a new Olympic stadium design is due in November. The delays in starting construction have raised the risk that the structure may not be ready by early 2020 as promised. What do you th See in context

Not bad if it would not get finished... I don't support the Olympics being held in Tokyo anyway. Should be held in a healthier part of the world, don't believe that Tokyo is free of contamination!
