Posted in: Man fined ¥300,000 for online hate speech See in context

Whether you agree or disagree with hate speech law, my issue is that the fine should be based on ones ability to pay. A trillionaire can afford a ¥300k fine, a pensioner on ¥100k per month cannot. Justice should demand people are treated equally. Jeff Bezos (Amazon CEO) and an average person would not be treated the same unless it was an income based fine. And they exist in some European countries.

Couldve been worse...like the 1979 false nuclear launch warning in NORAD. Almost went to nuclear war if some Russian and American didn't go beyond their routine.

I want an old republic West wing. And, I have to ask...why is there a chancellor but no president? You can't have the chancellor be both the head of state and head of govt....well fuhrer, never mind. Valorum and early Palpatine shouldve had a president to act as referee and protect democracy.

it's Christmas, so let's not bring religion into the discussion. Looking forward to seeing it.

No religion for a traditional religious holiday. (Silly face emoji)

Cheers. Merry Christmas (present emoji)

We get you dont like the religious (or perhaps Christian specific) theme. Some do. Some like secular, some like Norse religious, some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on...

Let the producer produce, and let the consumers consume...or not.

Someone will will be offended by anything. Someone probably offended by Ducktales or Australian Idol. Just do it.

Posted in: Japanese anime industry earning more money than ever, almost half of it from outside Japan See in context

If anime workers banded together to create a SAGAFTRA style union, they could all benefit from max hours of work per week (35) with adequate breaks (min 15 min every hour), min pay of ¥100,000 per week, and max weeks per year of 45.

OR

Make all workers partners so that they share in the profits of the company equally or by a time-in-company method.

Stealing = streaking here. Please add an edit button.

Flashing v streaking. Streaking is not a crime in many countries, despite full exposure of body - front and back. So, why is flashing a crime? Turns out stealing is exempt from sx crime registry as well. Is it because of the 70s culture?

South Korea's policy makes the most equitable sense. Believe the UK followed that too. If names of victims are kept secret, so to should the accused. Innocent until proven guilty means nothing if your mug is blasted on tv - you lose your job, your friends, etc.

I would say a lot of fight scenes in 'Star Wars' are similar.

Agreed. And cut back on the death stars. Seriously, the imperial finance and defence minister needs to be fired.

Posted in: Australian PM apologizes for family vacation during wildfire crisis See in context

concerned citizen:

Then he should have remained in the country close by and in regular touch with emergency services leadership, visiting and comforting survivors, the recovering in hospital, those who lost homes, etc.

The PM should ask the governor-general to do this as well, especially if he were away.

Concerned citizen:

I think his pastor needs to give his congregant a fiery sermon

I believe "fiery" is not what the congregation wants.

Concerned Citizen:

The head of state ought to be at the scene

Not sure if you intended, but that would be Queen Elizabeth, represented in Australia by His Excellency, Governor-General David Hurley. Prime Minister Scott Morrison is the head of govt.

I'm torn on my opinion of his leaving. He did promise his kid. I'm sure parents will sympathize.
