They would simply prefer minimal government interference in favor of private institutions such as charities, churches, and civic organizations
How wonderfully quaint. You make the world seem like a deeply religious small town in the Mid West.
Making jam and singing hymns ain’t going to put wheelchair access in every building in the country.

The UN was founded in 1945. Less than ten years later Danny Kaye was the first Goodwill Ambassador in 1954.
The UN has consistently used celebrities for their global reach. Jackie Chan, Lionel Messi, Audrey Hepburn, Roger Federer.
BTS happen to be one of, if not the, biggest selling pop artists currently. If you don't understand then you are just showing your age.

Can’t argue with the names mentioned but the predictable drone of impotent irrelevance from the comments makes it hard to concentrate.

China needs to up its game.
How about a TV show called ‘Why did you come to China ?’ where the desperately fragile egos of the viewing public are soothed by reassuring tales from wide-eyed foreigners arriving at an exotic destination.
Countless other programmes, publications, websites and blogs could churn out a myriad of state-approved content from foreigners exhorting the unparalleled depth and beauty of its unspoiled nature, its absolutely, unarguably unique culture and the unfailing kindness and benevolence of its humble, modest people.

This article doesn't read so well in Japan where all the TV channels are 24 hours of product placement with a news bulletin squeezed in.

I don't care about club football - I cannot bring myself to have allegiance to a business, so I only have the opportunity to enjoy football during the European Championship or the World Cup
So you're not a football fan at all then.

he was talking about everybody (of any colour or race) getting off social media
I am choosing to refer to the article.
It is anyones choice whether they do or don't use social media. Personally, I also choose not to. But if you do, then it should be considered normal not to receive abuse as in any other social situation.

I like how every photo of the Japanese Royal Family acting 'natural' looks like it comes from a furniture catalogue.

Heres a newsflash for you: its not a racial thing, however much you want to make it so.
A newsflash is not required from someone with poor reading comprehension.
Black female athletes
my race, my skin color.
Social media is a space anyone should feel comfortable going to, like going to the shopping mall or a walk in the park. If some idiots were abusing people in any other social space we, as a society, would expect the police to deal with it.

or maybe just not use social media anymore
Yes, black people should just hide. Don’t leave the house. That would solve the problem.

Social Justice advocates don't have any creative ability so they just deconstruct everything else
You would struggle to find anybody working in any creative industry now who isn’t a social justice advocate.
It’s been that way since the 1960’s.

Do you really require a crayon drawing to explain it ?

As a counterpoint, it is also notable how many Japanese dislike festivals. From mild irritation to outright contempt, the reasons are multitude.
Inconvenient due to roads being closed, noisy, overpriced 'food', corporate sponsors, Yakuza connections, groupthink mentality or just downright dasai.
