Those people are dangerously full of themselves and narcissistic. Yeah, you might have some good points and certain things to offer, but if your going to be selfish, hate anything or anyone different from the group or having a different spin on things, and keep your people (especially your women) for yourselves (or for AV cutlure/kyabakura as opposed to letting them mix with a foreigner (and God forbid contribute to another country), especially when your population is on the decline, you just waste and stall time. As Obama said, revolving door policies and shuffling, but wont change a damn thing on what needs to be changed for the better. 70 yrs later and sveral bombs dropped, still the same.

They make it seem like those members are independently changing, but in actuality they are just shuffling their members around like a sports team - they know what they are doing. Its like they strategically look at what is going on in other countries and shuffle and do things accordingly. Would not be surprised if they are behind the scenes influencing politics in other countries also.

its all they care about - money and material things. if there's a problem, throw money at it. God forbid something requires humanitarian empathy, compassion, or being a friend. But I guess robots are working on making robots for that line of work.

For the record, they clearly were not going to stop the horrors and torment they were committing. The Batan death march and other things (not to mention their ally with mustache). Pure stubborness from hell.

How in the hell does anyone even meet anyone face to face off of a social networking site these days? Some get ghosted from replies of being a penpal. I guess you gotta say you want to throw them off a bridge or promote for kyabakura and/or porn and then they'll be right over.

Leave it to the japanese to destroy the oceans and all the life in it. From the radiation leakage to this,..its clearly an omen. too bad many sheepish japanese anime worshipers don't see it...or do not want to. they just say 'well, everyone else is doing it, too!'

They want it were they only can freely move around and do anything, yet not the other way around. Some with some sense can see how they do things. They want to control and manipulate everything.

the lady seems useless. then again, i would say the same about the whole damn gov over there. when it comes to changing what needs to be changed, that gets hidden, killed off, or just swept under the rug. nothing really changed from 70 something years ago and some radiation clouds.

Posted in: European Parliament urges Japan to revamp child custody rules See in context

Hope they can learn to respect humanitarian causes and rights, and not just use the 'japan is a unique culture and you must respect, understand, and follow it' typical statement. I know if they had such a law when I was there, my friend would still have his child. They want the world to follow them and abide by their harmnony and 'wa' but dont follow things when it does not fit their comfort zone. pure control on their behalf. They'll probably try to throw money at it in replacement of actually following through.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 75 coronavirus infections; drops below 100 for 1st time in 7 days See in context

Many would say that number is due to japan's culture of wearing face masks everywhere and even to bed. Besides masks really being something more of 75% psychological thing for them along with not standing out (in fear of offending those who don't want you to stand out), I think they just did a good job in team work and cooperating in large numbers, which is nothing new for them. They definitely dodged a bullet.

Seems like the world's borders are closing (even if in cases they are not) ...or a good natural flow of universalism within humanity is retracting. Japan prefers it that way anyway. Especially when it benefits japan.

I, as well as my American friend have been treated horribly in japan. But not only was it verbal, it was very subtle and sneaky,.. something in the air at times and those eyes through the surgical masks that would somehow create a xenophobic air and atmosphere were you didn't fit in.

they do the same thing and copy the U.S. with damn near everything. come to think of it, these days, not sure who is copying who anymore. as the young consumer is so influenced by japanese pop culture and thinking. its not a true universal system. but a manipulated and fake one.

In this day and age, the truth is, you'd be discriminated on for NOT being gay or ok with things of their lifestyle! Who are they fooling?? I have seen numerous times of people being harassed and lost their jobs because of the people being straight. Equal rights is equal rights.

Posted in: 5 youths arrested over death of 81-year-old homeless man See in context

I would even go out on a limb and say that that type of mental illness has bled into other countries and their subtle cultural influences and see many similar things since i left that dark place. im sure a lot has come from pop-culture. its like they made other countries start thinking like them in many social aspects, intentionally or not. anybody else see those similarities?? I used to never see some of the stuff or social rules in the states and other countries as I did in japan, but now it is almost as if they are japanese with certain things. i think the past several decades people have thought of them as some kind of chosen people of God or something. not sure why. sure as hell definitely not the case. they had potential to do right with certain things from 70 years ago, but seems as if nothing has really changed. and all that seems cute, clean, tidy, and hard working on the surface and outside, is still dirty as hell on the in, especially if the work is not directed in the right direction.

bully culture and group mentality that singles out and isolates a weak link is a mental illness in itself. its really shocking though just how many of those types of things, even worse I have read, that had happened in japan. and some of those people went free and became popular and developed well lived lives afterwards. one psycho became a body builder and a hsotess i was told by a japanese national once, while when he was in middle school he tortured some kid and did a bunch of other stuff. that word..psycho. has a different meaning in japan. i keep a distance from that demonic stuff, but study the dangers it has on the world and people.

I remember I bought her first cd when it was released in japan. her earlier stuff was really good. but then again, a lot of the ealrier japanese pop songs between ayumi and others were not so bad. different era and future potential of hope chosen by God I guess. I agree.

Posted in: Economists predict coronavirus job fallout will be greater than Lehman shock See in context

Doesn't seem to be that bad there, and business as usual with japan inc. But exactly how are some foreign nationals still able to live there without a job (considering you are not homeless like some I know) is beyond me.

To the commentors mentioning about abe not resigning until the constitution being changed to go to war are exactly correct. seems like that is their prime motivation, and possibly the reason the government not wanting to pay out money to help people during the situation. definitely and agenda going on between that and the olympic efforts and cover ups.

'Schools should teach boxing. It's a wonderful self defence and form of fighting. If this kid could box, this damn pervert would be hurting right now.'

Posted in: Japanese man suspected of murdering Norwegian woman in Laos See in context

Don't think they are going to find him. There was once a japanese nut job who murdered a British English teacher at Nova who managed to dodge authorities for quite sometime. They have a way of blending in well, especially in asia. its almost like, these days, if you say you japanese, being a man, they show all kinds of respect to you. you could be dirt bag ugly, and still get good pick with the ladies. amazing what pop-culture popularity can do.

How do those types even get married? Sounds like the guy had a large social circle of ex-wives. All I can say is, ...they sure can pick them. From those beauties going with the porn recruiters to thugs, punks and drug dealers like that guy, ..all the while other some men can't seem to find a decent basic wife..

Posted in: Many go to work despite Abe's call for telework See in context

From what it seems, they really had their eye set on those olympics, regardless of the situation...and prepared for it ahead of time..? It just seems they are going to work like it is nothing going on while the rest of the world is on lock down and has to stay home. the japanese have been known to just go to work regardless of being sick or missing a limb. but effort in other areas in life is obviously a no no. something seems fishy, but it is what it is. they have been known to be below the belt and manipulate things to go in their favor.

It just seems the majority of japanese are just not effected by this virus for some reason, I dont know. that is a good thing for them. also, they obviously were ready to go for the olympics, regardless of everything that was going on globally. Now,..they want to declare a state of emergency? doesnt seem real. Why now?? Declaring a state of emergency when you do not need to declare one does not make sense. I would be more curious to know why they are not effected by the virus.

I personally think a herd mentality is dangerous. You have so many people running around doing things and reacting out of the herd. It kinda sapps away necessary things for an organic ecosystem and people just hoard away things and it creates waste. I feel their reaction is not real in this situation.

I feel now, from celebrities to some politicians in japan might actually say they have caught the virus,...why? because everyone else is doing it, so we have to do the same. like a boom. Especially now that the Olympics has been postponed anyway,..their motivation to be a 'safety' haven is put to the side.
