Posted in: Gov't welcomes Ukraine evacuees with eye on int'l recognition, election See in context

Having resided in your country (Japan), I consider it a start. The Japanese people, despite a tradition of ethnocentrism, treat foreigners well as long as those foreigners do not commit crimes or enter Japan without the proper process being followed.

I applaud the Japanese government for its generosity and feel that any effort they make is an honest one.

Why shouldn't a country offer refuge to the people they choose to help? The USA has not in modern times refused Asian refugees. That is not true. We welcome anyone who has gone through the proper process and not illegally entered our nation. The Ukrainians welcome any help they can get. I do have to point out that Estonia, a country of just over 1.3 million citizens has contributed over $ 200,000,000.00 in aid to Ukraine.

Posted in: Record low number of pregnancies reported in Japan in 2020 See in context

I think most of the theories on why the birthrate is so low are not even close or perhaps many of them together can ad up. In this day of great hospital care, and easy births (my daughter and her baby were not overnight in the hospital when she gave birth recently) and advanced fertility treatments it is certainly not medical in most cases.

In Japan, those couples having the most children come from the lowest economic strata of the population. THE FAMILY,---is strong.

When you have media promoting and making popular programs like "modern family" is there any wonder why the traditional family is not a priority and the birthrate is tumbling where exposure to negative family media persists?
