Posted in: Pandemic reveals hidden poverty in wealthy Japan See in context

Things in life get more and more expensive because rich people wanna get richer. Poor people don’t stand a chance since money is in the wrong hands. Capitalism is not what it was supposed to be.

In Japan, things get worse because if you don’t have “ power “, if you don’t have money, if you’re not “ successful “, Japanese society looks at you as if you were a ghost. A nobody. Unfortunately there are many “ ghosts “ out there. Like unwanted guests or neighbors but they can’t leave.

Twenty-five train operators in the the Tokyo metropolitan area will move up their last departure times by around 30 minutes from Wednesday night to help stem the spread of the resurgent coronavirus.

“Help”? No. Far from it. They’re not thinking exclusively about people’s safety and that’s why this is laughable.

The exams, which replaced the National Center Test for University Admissions, drew a total of 535,245 applicants and are taking place at 681 venues,

How many of these will become niito or hikikomori after they realize their ( real ) freedom is coming to an end. Just a few I hope. Japanese students need to endure a lot of pressure and I wish all their hard work would have a better fate. Good luck to all the students and be strong.

Posted in: Gov't eyes punishment for refusal to comply with COVID-19 measures See in context

“Dude, a foreigner resident will be deported and his visa revoked if he refuses to do the same”

As they should be. I think America is the only country in the world where criminal foreigners are not deported.

...

“As they should be“

I 100% agree with you!

If you do a serious crime as a foreigner...Sayonara!

And what heinous / horrible / serious crime are we talking about? Is it one that makes these people deserve to have their ( AND their families ) lives turned upside down?

Why not fining those companies that forces people to come to the office, risking them to be infected? Such nonsense.

Pigs will fly before they do something about that. They love money. That’s all they care about. Even when we’re talking about people’s lives. Those packed trains in the morning can be seen as a symbol of Japanese stubbornness and stupidity.

Posted in: Gov't eyes punishment for refusal to comply with COVID-19 measures See in context

Why would anyone refuse to go to the hospital?

Because unfortunately they fear retribution from their employer or the social stigma of being revealed as being a positive case. 

Its a disgrace, but it happens.

Yes, that’s very common in Japanese society. Not just with Covid-19 but with millions of other things too. One of the dark sides of Japan.

Gov't eyes punishment for refusal to comply with COVID-19 measures

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga's administration is readying legislation to punish those refusing to comply with government-mandated COVID-19 measures, as Japan on Friday marked one year since the first case of coronavirus infection was confirmed in the country.

As expected, slow as a snail, but they’re getting there.

A state of emergency, under which people are urged to refrain from going outside unnecessarily

These are the ones that need to be punished severely...

Punish stupidity. It’s because of stupidity and ignorance that things got where they are now.

a proposed revision to the infectious disease law making it possible to impose fines or even prison sentences on people who test positive for the coronavirus but refuse to be hospitalized or cooperate with contact tracing efforts.

...

that would enable the government to fine businesses that fail to comply with its requests to shorten their operating hours or temporarily close.

Those who are infected are already being punished by being sick, but they should make sure they don’t spread the virus. Refusing to be hospitalized or giving false information is serious, so the 500,000-1 million is understandable. Businesses need to survive so that complicates things. Instead of fines, how about more financial support?

The government's top spokesman, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato, said at a press conference Friday it was "a matter of course" that such emergency steps be discussed before they become necessary.

These people love to “discuss” things, don’t they... Thousands of meetings to catch up with the rest of the world.

Posted in: Japan's 2nd state of emergency met with public indifference See in context

People are being made to go to work, people at work have to eat out, there is no support to allow people to do what they know they should be doing, and hanging wistful banners everywhere 'suggesting' Stay Home when our boss says 'sure, you can always quit and stay home' is just a slap in the face.

What’s funny is that we see thousands of people outside when they could choose to stay home. They have a choice. And then we have those people who wish and want to stay home but they have to go to work, they don’t have a choice and they’re putting their families at home at risk.

Will the girls be charged too? They accepted money for sexual acts, entirely willful.

Here we go again. Same old discussion.

They too young to know what the h-ll they’re doing and the consequences and real meaning of their actions. This is exactly why these creeps try to abuse them. Instead of protecting and educating them, they’re abusing them.

Posted in: Tech giants banished Trump. Now things get complicated See in context

Will companies now hold other world leaders to the same standard? Will they wade further into deciding what is and isn't allowed on their platforms, potentially alienating large swaths of their user base? Will all this lead to further online splintering, pushing those flirting with extreme views to fringe sites and secret chat groups?

They know what they’re doing.

“This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms,” he told reporters in Berlin. “Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

From that German perspective, it should be the government, and not private companies like Facebook and Twitter, who decides what counts as dangerous speech on social platforms.

Government or not, they did the right thing.

...

People are drunk with lies and conspiracy theories. We’re talking about putting people’s lives in danger. If you wanna lie to people, make them violent and kill each other, then scr-w you and your so called “free speech”.

This is about making the world a safer and better place. It shouldn’t be that complicated.

Posted in: Japan to halt entry of all nonresident foreign nationals See in context

Japan will suspend the entry of all nonresident foreign nationals into the country as part of its efforts to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus,

It makes sense. If you don’t live in the country, you have no business in coming here and spread God knows what.

In addition, foreign residents who breach the 14-day quarantine rule will have their resident status revoked and be subject to deportation,

Eeeasy, take it easy fellas! Why so much strictness? Are we talking about killers, rapists or robbers? Is this an excuse to get rid of those “mendokusai gaijin”? Now’s a good chance huh? Seriously, if it were for some people ( some, not all, but some ) this country would have its borders completely closed like it had centuries ago.

Posted in: Young Japanese celebrate Coming-of-Age Day under COVID's shadow See in context

Interesting comments. Every year at this time the comments about coming of age day are always the same. It is stupid , it cost too much money etc. This year it is corona. Of course, they forgot to read the following:

"in a message read out to attendees who had to abide with anti-infection measures.

Participants wore face masks, had their temperature checks and were asked just to listen to the national anthem, instead of singing it out loud."

These people have a love hate relationship with Japan. They’re always gonna find something to point their fingers at. But... they could’ve postponed this one. There’s a pandemic and a state of emergency going on now.

Posted in: Japanese pray for end to pandemic in annual ice bath ritual at Tokyo shrine See in context

They’re praying in vain. So? I also wish that instead of 12, it was 0 ( but it was supposed to be more than 100, so people are being careful after all ) because of the pandemic and the soe. But one thing I’m not gonna do is disrespect their traditions and beliefs and make fun of them. Those of you doing that are probably old enough to know the meaning of respect. Older than me I’m sure.

“No social distancing in that photo. Praying in vain. Why not just take a cold shower at home instead?”

...

“Prays to get over from covid. Goes home and dies of hypothermia.”

...

”What a surprise: scrawny oyajis choose to continue carrying out a ritual they do every year, stick the word COVID on it and pretend it's some kind of action.“

...

“Can't these morons wear a mask properly?”

Let people pray in peace.

The reason some people don’t want a UBI is because when everybody is treated the same it removes something they think they have over those who are less fortunate.

The good old classic: “I’m better than you”. Which is why the world is such a mess.

Posted in: Coronavirus third wave puts many Japanese hospitals on overload See in context

Although the government is expected to provide financial support to medical facilities that secure more beds for COVID-19 patients, a shortage of doctors and nurses means it is unlikely many hospitals will answer the call.

"There aren't enough doctors or nurses," said Nakagawa. "Even if hospitals are told to increase the number of beds, what can't be done, can't be done."

For decades, hundreds of thousands of Japanese women were denied their ( potential ) future as doctors and nurses. They simply lived in a world ( Japan ) where, since a young age, they were taught that men “take care of things”, that includes being a doctor and treating others. Instead they’re now ( example ) in the kitchen waiting for their exhausted sarariman to get home.

Now the dinosaurs need more doctors. The system is collapsing they say.
