and people want to say 'well, everyone does the same thing!' I have been telling everyone the japanese are bullies for the longest - and at times, the passive aggressiveness strategy.

if not executed, i think they should put him to work in labour in service to disabled people for the remaining amount of his life somehow. in a way were he not not a physical threat to the disabled people of course. i think a lot of people who did horrific things of the such should be put in such positions. death is to easy of an escape for them.

In retrospect and when thinking about, participating in that system in japan is clearly borderline suicidal, even if seeking refuge from something else. I met someone who lived there for so long, they said they felt like a P.O.W. Inside and outside of the torture chamber he was thrown in.

Cannot really blame Ghosn for ghosting. but I think it is also possible he was let go. guy seemed to have done a lot for nissan. i personally would never work for a japanese company.

Foreigners now in that country really will not have a leg to stand on when it comes to getting bail. Not like they had much before. seems as if they let him go. anything that starts to make japan look embarrassing or in the wrong within the international community they will switch up on quick. especially because of the new year and decade round the corner. and again, not like they are going to change.

So much for free speech and silencing people and the overall problem. Nothing new. japan has been doing it for so long. A threat is one thing, but someone expressing their dissatisfaction or traumatic and painful and resentful experiences from certain situations is another thing. but i can understand some would think the same thing can evolve into threats and actions. other than that possibility why are they threatened by what 'trolls' or angry people post in disatisfaction? 'trolls' and people who post things in some cricumstances have been wronged, seen or experienced something, or something else. if they did not have such a dissastisfaction, they would not be online and maybe out enjoying this wonderful life with all the wonderful great people in it! i doubt they would post online. they should have invited the person out for drinks and maybe changed the persons outlook. i am no therapist but better than sweeping the problem under the rug or silently murdering those people.

How and why are they able to do this? Are all the shot callers in the international community scared of them or do those shot callers have kamidanas in their homes and bow and clap every morning? Seriously, how can they do that. Dumping that crap will destroy the oceans of neighboring countries. So much for omotenashi and think of others, huh? only when its convenient for them.

Posted in: Japan soul-searching over freedom of expression See in context

They dodge responsibility for anything on their end and try to set the pace to the world that everything revolves around their culture, trends, and ethics, and therefore they are always right. They muffle freedom of speech and expression of others (mainly individuals). If they do not do these things, they will lose their control over others. Kinda seems like crabs in a bucket.

Posted in: Foreign tourists in Kyoto reminded of etiquette via smartphones See in context

It seems the japanese can do all kinds of things from peeing in public outside, taking up space on the trains, groping, and damn near anything they want,.. but if a foreigners were to do 1/4th of any of those things, they got attacked for it. but yet they still want that money pouring in, though. that passive aggression strategy they use is getting old and they should try to learn to understand other people's cultures and customs. If not, they don't have to have people from abroad enter. Why not go back to the Edo period. See how that will work out for you.

Nail on the head, brother. I swear, I think they do this on a global scale with pop-culture and stuff and non-japanese people do not even realize it. God forbid they step out of their comfort zone a bit.

Something comes off as more sick and twisted with this. They should educate people to be respectful of others rather than sick fashion statements. I thought honor and respect was a thing over there. maybe that died off with the samurai.

Posted in: Writer hopes Japanese step out of 'comfort zone' as society diversifies See in context

From my experience abroad and helping young people learn a foreign language, rather than them speaking a language fluently and passing an exam, I think the most important thing is the right motivation and heart. I would think having a good heart and at least an ounce of God in it to be important. I don't think a people should think of themselves and their race as being superior or more pure than others. And if they do find themselves to be more blessed, I would consider it a duty to help those who are less fortunate. Thinking of your race as being more worthy and the other less is very dangerous and wrong. But cultures are so important to some people, and if you don't fit with theirs, you are out of luck and they will bully. That is why I personally think there should be some slack in letting races, people, and cultures to be free to flow and mix. Doesn't have to be forced, but free to do so. Problem is, you have so many drones and lemmings that all do the same thing in unity. It is like feast or famine with some.

Posted in: S Korea warns of security impact if dropped from Japan's easy-trade list See in context

Talk to some people have successful at living in Japan - we have almost all spent some effort to integrate, and generally have entirely different experiences than your friend.

From what it seems, they do not let some have the opportunity to 'integrate'. The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.

They seem to have a type of mental complex when it comes to something or someone being original or being better than them. If they can't duplicate it, it angers them somehow. Seriously. They like things that they can copy or imitate to perfection and later on make better. Or,.. they much prefer the other party copy or imitate them, kind of like what they told the Koreans to do back in the day. They told them to speak japanese, study shinto, but if they ask you if you are japanese, say no...what the hell is that??

I think most if the successful gaijin there are kind of cookie cut to their mold, therefore, have access to the never never land amusement park. So, i guess in a way, not fitting in there is maybe a good thing. Especially if you are not ok with dark sick and demented pedophila perversions. I would think that place to be a haven for sick individuals who believe in no higher power spiritual reverance.

Posted in: S Korea warns of security impact if dropped from Japan's easy-trade list See in context

From what my American friend mentioned from his experiences living in japan and dealing with the majority of the people there, especially in tokyo, he was clearly treated as a POW there. His ignorance was somewhat bliss at first, but gradually realized after scraping the surface of cool gadgets and technical conveniences and kawaii faces, that he jumped out of the fire pan and into the fire. they killed his child and it was horrible how they did him. But clearly, based on history as well, it is not a country for humanitarian rights and global security and peace. C'mon,.. look at the dark anime, pedophilia, and other sick, dark, and twisted things there. something is not right. You do not even have to be religious, just someone who acknowledges light and goodness..

Posted in: Trump tweets threaten to disrupt U.S.-China trade talks See in context

Many say I am negative, stuck in the past and dealing with issues, but I can clearly see, he is one of the best damn Presidents the U.S. had in a while. and I by far trust the people in his cabinet than the blue team. He obviously calls people out and then they get 'offended' to what he says but the guy has common sense and just doesnt give good speeches or blows smoke. he also respects people's spiritual rights and freedoms which I think is important when it comes to having a sane society. While his style is a bit overly direct with things for many, I personally think 4 more years is not enough to have such a as President Trump, and seeing the other bunch in line is really scary.

So, one year before Japan hosts the Paralympics they put a severely disabled person into the diet and renovate to accomodate him. Coincidence? Hmm?

Totally agree. While I would like to think they are changing for the better, I can almost guarantee the thugs and crawly critters are all but under the rugs and things are the same. Its all surface level stuff and a bit staged. After the stuff I heard about and what had happened to some people, it is no wonder they sided with Hitler.

For a culture and modern mindset that promotes and encourages attacking and bullying the weak and destroying their will to survive and function in a society, I find this hard to believe and to be mere lip service or 'bakeru hada', as they are masters of. But they will do what they can to make people believe otherwise.

"This clearly hostile action can be a lethal blow to the South Korean economy,"

I disagree. I love American products and these days, that is all I will invest in, however, I love Samsung phones and their products. I personally find that japanese products (among other things) are not what they used to be, and that they missed their train on something or got lost a while back when they had their opportunity. There was a time when some people I know took refuge there, hoping to find a fresh start, but after living there, was not treated fairly. From their products to even their anime and games, something has been lost and is still leaving.
