Im not gonna lie. It's a way cooler looking flag than the one they get now. And I do think tshirts with the design look cool.
Germany wanted an ethno state, where Japan wanted to unite Asian under their rule. So it's a bit different.

So much fake news. Japan blocked export on dangerous materials to South Korea because they're internal controls on those substances were not being monitored and being sold on the black market. The ww2 crap is Korea's excuse for their incompetence. It's like equivalent to calling someone a racist when you don't agree with them; it's defamation and only used to keep their population inline, a propaganda tool to keep the Korean people from rising against their corrupt government by the constant raising of ghost of the past. It's all so tiresome.

I hope it happens. Japan will have to grow some, build an army and become competitive in the tech market.
Japan will also have to play nice to get access to that new nk market. You know the USA wants it. Good play moon. Even though I can't stand you, it's a good move. Shake it up.

Go back to 5 percent flat sales tax and see the country's economy explode and get that so desired inflation. LDP would be heros.
But they are so dumb. They got this belief that the government has to provide everything for people. They are economy killers, bronze statue hunters.

This is full retart.
Making all these wacky laws for which tax is what percent just makes more paper work and more spending on people to sort it out.
Just choose one flat tax. Japanese government is full of morons that grew up with silver spoon in hand.

Well the Japanese government is working against his policies with all the tax raising. If Japan wants inflation, the answer is so simple. Just cut sales taxes.
But the problem is Tokyo is addicted to the people's money and making pet projects. They can't cut taxes without slashing all the bloated social services. It's taboo.

I don't understand why SK doesn't want to fix their import export laws on this material??? Do they want to keep the re-export trade running???

There is a reason for the ban of dangerous materials, South Korean laws are too loose and they can't account for where all the chemicals end up. All Japan was requesting was to tight up their laws and make sure the chems don't get into the wrong hands. But South Korean turned it into a side show because they can't be truthful towards their people; they must keep a common enemy (Japan) so their people don't overthrow their own government.
Dangerous and stupid game. I wish media wasn't complicit in the the fake news and would explain the truth to people.

People want to eat their cake and have it too. Japan needs energy. If you live in Japan your going to have to settle for coal or nuclear. It's just the way it is until green energies (if ever) become more viable.
Also the government is changing the law for the solar panel energy mandatory buying for electric companies because it's forcing the electric companies to raise prices on people who can't afford the panels. So these schemes to make people go green usually end up hurting the people financially. And people will need the money especially with the sales tax increase.
Coal is the reasonable answer for Japan atm and their coal power plants are much more cleaner than China or India. Maybe people should demand those countries add scrubbers to their coal power plants rather than obsessing on co2. We can prove the pollution coming from those plants are cancer causing and unhealthy at least.

This is the result of Japanese bureaucracy love for paperwork and long drawn out application procedures. Good on TOEIC for not standing for it.
I teach University professors to doctors and they all say the same thing. The government paperwork increases and changes all the time and it becomes half of their job to satisfy the system.

PTownsend. Interesting concept of culture DNA. Mao killed over 60 million people who would rejected the communist dictatorial rule. Maybe he was able to alter Chinese dna by the mass death. Not only the the Chinese people been under rule of some faction for thousands of years.

This is not really a key issue, as the media would like everyone to think it is. As an American I just want to see peace an prosperity between the two nations, but the Democrat media keeps this narrative going and as it continues the IQ of the nation goes down.

Your either for free speech or against free speech. I watched the video. I did not think it was awesome. By the logic the nz courts the video of the JFK assassination should be banned. If someone said that video was awesome should they be jailed? Free speech is not sometimes yes but sometimes no.
I guess American ideas are not for everyone.

Tackling plastic pollution became more of a global priority after China, which had been accepting a hefty chunk of the world's waste, banned imports at the start of 2018.

Japan definitely uses way too much plastic in their packaging. It's a bit of a racket and half the time I feel like I'm paying more for the plastic than the product. Every snack here is wrapped in plastic placed on a plastic tray and wrapped and plastic again. Even the fruit is wrapped in it. It's over the top.
And I also have a suspicion that it's causing the stomach cancer to rise in this country. Everyone eats out of plastic bentous plastic bottles plastic snack packs, plastic is used to keep things organized; Good luck finding a glass pitcher in this country.
I could do with less of it.
