Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a Genevan philosopher from the 18th-century, already outlined in his "Theory of Natural Human" that "uncorrupted morals" prevail in the "state of nature" and that it is the society that corrupts men. Theory which was widely criticised later on by Voltaire et Al. Kanokogi is 3 centuries back, but it is good they start to go thorungh some kind of cultural revolution...

Posted in: If Japan is going to stem the tide of suicides, it has to begin with changing perceptions about suicide. That is, suicide should be dealt with as a social problem, not as a way to save face. See in context

Suicide in Japan is a cultural problem. Behind a lack of undestanding of "freedom" and human dignity.

Japan is still a Developing Country when it comes to Human rights. I wonder why Civilised Countries do no take commercial measures.

Posted in: Politics - American wives vs Japanese wives See in context

Well Makoto, if you look at the Clinton's you see how a wife can influence also the political agenda! In fact she candidate herself at the latest elections, with the husband supporting her. That was more then "supporting her husband", but sharing some ideals. And there is nothing wrong in sharing something more then house and family.

It appears that the baby hatch is available in Japan at Kumamoto since 2006. It appears first in Italy in 787, called "ruota degli esposti". Sad, but useful to save lifes.

Ten years ago Apple was close to default. Steve ended up selling memory sticks branded as iPod.

Posted in: Parents arrested over death of 7-year-old son See in context

In Japan there is not a concept of third parent i.e. the Government acting as parent taking care of a child when the natural parents are not in a position to grown the child or are abusing the child. This legal concept, widely common in all civil countries in Europe and US, must be adopted by Japan which shall start thinking more about Children rights.

Posted in: Invoke Pinkerton Rule to get back abducted children See in context

We can say many things about Japan. But sometimes a factual truth - a “safe haven” for child abduction - describes a country behavior and society better then any other analysis. And the role of the Press is crucial in reminding the public opinion on the issues. So many thanks to JapanToday for bringing the attention to this very delicate and important topic.

The second at this station in two days, but 200 across Japan. A cultural flaw. The Society that induce to a suicide. The Society represented by its Government should pay back the families of this silent victims.
