People should just stop killing their kids and we won't have this problem. Government can't prevent people from killing their kids.

Research? What, how to make whale meat taste good? Tried it and it tastes like beef marinated in garbage juice for a week with a touch of low tide. Funny how people get so uppity about eating whales when octopus which are arguably much more intelligent are chopped up and made into delicious Takoyaki without a second thought.

What's the point of getting married and raising a family if you're just going to spend 80% of your waking life working for a company that doesn't value you enough to pay fair wages (not to mention obligatory nomikai), paying expensive club fees for children who you barely know, while your relationship with your spouse turns into a slowly sinking ship which you don't have the time nor inclination to stop? What time is there for any kind of self fulfillment?
The government's measures are to promote marriage, but why not create an environment where people actually want to get married in the first place?

I agree with philly1 here, there's a lot the individual can do to mitigate waste. As the residents of Kamikatsu demonstrated, a little awareness and effort can go a long way in reducing waste, though as others pointed out, these methods and attitudes will be difficult to scale up to big cities like Tokyo, where people have to keep up with the hustle and bustle of city life.
