The issues worth changing by the current govt are missing present day priorities.

Is it army and emergency which need more thinking, or is it rather outdated foreign relations such as how to live with neighbors and antique family law,

that needs pondering about?

A lot of smoke before we will see the fire.

In other G countries there is talk of universal income to all.

So the money has been generated, it is just there, created by using natural resources and human geniality.

Only the mindset of the of the ones in charge still admire old fashioned imperialism and will not live up to the possibilities of this age.

As it is with outsiders over here you are asked to stay in your box.

The translation of  "Hokori takaki Nihonjin de itai" as (I want to be a Japanese of great pride) might stear old Nic‘s remains.

Google translate makes it „I want to stay in the dust“

What let to the calling off of the games so rapidly was, in my opinion, the refusal of mayor athletes themselves and national committees to attend under the present circumstances.
