No one "gave" the U.S. the power it held at the end of WWII. It naturally filled a military and economic vacuum with Europe and much of Asia in physical ruin and unable to feed themselves. 

Please provide your reference. That is a flat out superhero claim . Nations occupied by the US were never given a chance to decide for itself - because the US believes they are incapable, just like how it sees other nations that need to be "saved" from military and economic ruin. Fast forward now, China at least enters the world stage building, not bombing.

The airline industry has mastered this craft - and their cancellation policy is based on numbers - not ethnicity. Data Analytics can show the rate of cancellations on a given number of bookings on any given day - if they are sly, (they can even use IP address) to see where the booking came from. Point is, the technology is there to fix this issue without being racist. At 200billion yen losses a year they could have created an IT team to provide solutions.

The vocational School Visa loophole is also the underlying issue here, much like the Trainee Visa , it is just being used as source of cheap labor.

From a consumer's perspective - If Nissan can risk throwing all this $#%T on the fan, then they also take the same risks to their products and services, at which point, they lose customers.  Their stock value will plummet and drive the business down - That is not what businessmen do. There must be something more happening here - or it is just plain incompetent leadership.

If Nagayo hit the man or made a counter offensive move - would her professional license be affected?  Being that her action was a defensive response and a means to stop a crime? This a question, not a statement.

Not from the US,  clueless on what gun ownership means, but I can see that the interpretation of it is so diverse, cluttered and links to so many ends. If there is an institution that supposedly represents gun ownership, isn't that entity responsible for crimes committed from the cause they promote?

This sort of action is borne out of depression and mindset. The social services, health care, even the media should have done more ( if there are any) to address all this family-member killings with an information drive or support program.
