Obviously another main factor in this pandemic is the conciousness of the population, and its trust in the local government and authorities.
In Japan they didn’t have to fight over much, and thus didn’t have to give up much either

I guess it’s training for a life with lots of violence and crime and police.
Since in the states we insist on the right to bear arms, and to also have concealed deadly weapons combined with the right to use it on anyone who wrongs you…you will have horrific violence, and needless killings, and stuff of horror films, like school shootings etc.
Its cultural, and the responsibility comes with a huge price to pay.
The Police and authorities are also trigger happy due to this, and although I am half American and love it, this is one of the things that I dislike about it.

Hopefully it isn’t required as that would add more control methods that won’t be relinquished easy.

Seems like the Chinese were able to influence two dutch athletes. Their propaganda is mainly for use within China to tout to their own people.

In my one party state, yeah it is sort of true, although as others mentioned, the LDP is choreographed to sync with the US.
It is no coincidence that Japan has doubled its defense budget and Australia became part of Auckus.
Dangerous days ahead.

Has anyone else noticed that the daily death count in Japan is still higher than before?

Modern science is not at a point where they can even analyze why and whats happening?
Thats a rather unusual amount of honesty from an official source.
Whats going on here?

They aren’t taking it far enough.
Superman should also be having a sex change and gender reassignment, while saving the environment.

Good news to my ears.
But 20 dying of it today is a lot and very sad too.
Must still be vigilant and protect the vunerable.

To put it simply Japanese Banks are oddly prejudiced to not give you a card.
I am Japanese and my wife is American.
So she has gone into large banks like UFJ or Sumitomo and be literally told that “foreigners don’t get credit cards”. Now when I call back, there is a much different tone, especially when I remind them that we both know that no such rule exists.
Its often even more funny when I walk in later with my Japanese papers looking like a foreigner to help her get it done lol.

Pretty obvious why they say a famous person lost instead of mentioning an unknown that beat her.
Pretty funny that people get offended about ANYTHING

Thats actually totally fine by me.
What is not fine is forcing everyone to do something.

I kinda wish there wasn’t big squirts of mayonaise mixes on top.
In Japan they often love to slather something in mayo, which is good for some maybe, but not me.

Disagree with the professor.
Japan has never attracted top talent.
Japan has been attractive to language teachers (more so in the past) and 3rd World cheap labor.

I like how the way the article ends with the “citizens” wanting it.
Invented comments if you ask me.
Also this is not JR East, its the government and police force who would want that isn’t it?
Final question, if the biggest problem is chikan and perverts, why would the system not be used for them too?
Past violent criminals who committed crimes with the JR area and anyone whos ever been arrested is completely different.

Am I a big baby too?
The amount of people this year who are suddenly willing to cast others as “pro or anti” “right or left” or simply that they are enlightened and others scientifically dark….
Big babies that bunch!

I am pretty dissapointed at how quickly so many of us are ready to turn on the next guy for something.

You aren’t sure of the “morality” of a hospital not treating someone who is sick or injured but unvaccinated?
I am sure that is wrong. And I am not anti vaccination.
Smokers should also not get treatment then.
And if you drink and drive and crash, thats pretty bad behavior!
Let him/her stay there?

Discrimination is the u just treatment of others based on what or who they are or what they believe and the likes.
I think its great that there is a vaccine and think that all who want to should have access to it.
I also think that forcing someone who figures they arent concerned about corona, already had it, are young (so are mostly immune) to get the vaccine will result in resentment and problems in the long run.

Interesting how you both form conclusions by “walking past health centers” and observing who’s in line.
Would that be more of an indicator of the demograph that lives in that area, has time during that part of the day, or even another reason?

It’s kinda sad to see people labeling each other over a shot.
Paul, they are centered fascists you say?
Even more dangerous than Corona for many in the long run will be the intolerance and division caused by such knee jerk general reactions.
I am not pro or anti anything.
I have friends and family who want the shot, and others who don’t, and others who dont feel endangered and want to wait.
I won’t judge them based on that

That’s a great idea.
No Japanese Politician has ever tried to do that, and Kim is always open to summits with the revolving Prime Minister of Japan to talk about abduction issues.

Lol, the guys at your local immigrations are nice and polite? Way to miss the point man.
This isnt immigrations, but the detention center/prison.
Rip up ur visa and go walk to your favorite polite immigrations center and declare yourself illegal.
I think then you will see how nice they really can be.
