Scientists are employees and as all employees it is their owners that decide what they work on and how the product of their science is used, abused or suppressed. Rember governments are run by big money not by scientists.

Same error as made by USA, Canada and European Countries, instead of acting fast and stopping the Pandemic from happening they procrastinate changing lives for saving economy and that way created the need for more money to be spent and economy to be ruined. Typical management by crises by the Elected Dictatorships controlled by business from the background. Billions of working persons future earnings being wasted to patch up the problem created by negligence, or is there a plan behind all this?

Abe is doing no better than his boss in Washington. Instead of closing the door to the Virus he is preparing the money to patch up the damage that lack of prevention will cause. in two weeks from now Japan will catching up with other worst cases.

My message to the Japanese and the French, the Nisan and the Renault employers and Unions; You should be ashamed! You all ate out of this guys hands, he took your business out of the mud and made them strong and fed you for 17 years he took much lesser remuneration than his equals in the industry and now instead of thank you, you are biting the hands that fed you. SHAME! SHAME!

Posted in: Lebanon neighbors welcome Ghosn; activists in uproar See in context

Tokyo officials have previously said the system is not inhumane and that Ghosn has been treated like any other suspect. In the other words he was badly treated as any other suspect. Medieval enforcement of admission of guilt, the physical torture replaced by psychological torture and mutilation. It is sad that otherwise such homogenous socially and culturally advanced society can be so backward when it comes to courts and justice. Problem is that in Japan everyday life is like ritual with no tolerance for deviation from rules, logical thinking is unnecessary because nothing ever changes, that is destroying the ability to think and make adaptive or innovative decisions.

In this case we are looking at the case where opposite of decent logic is applied.

In the west they say "do not bite the hand that feeds you." while here Japan said "bite off the hand that fed you" because you do not need it any more. They should have said; Thank You for the services well rendered, Keep the extra change and farewell on your next assignment. That would be a honourable discharge more inline with Japanese pride.

After what he did for Nisan and Japan and all that for a fraction of remuneration similar executives received from their companies he deserved respect instead of a coup and enslavement by Japanese consortium of competing business man and sleazy inhuman justice system. They, Japanese employees of Nisan and affiliated companies benefited more than he did although to a regular man on the street, ilke myself money received by him sounds enormous, it is small compared against other automakers executives remunerations. Insteads of sticking to the law there should be some logical view of things applied here.

Posted in: 'Little Miss Period' tackles Japan's menstruation taboos with a punch See in context

before claiming the right of Japan to this menstruation tabu inquire about the similarities in other cultures, be ready for surprise, you are not alone, contrary this dirty women notion is all over the national and religious spectrum. Some even separate the women from man during intercourse because woman is "dirty".

Posted in: China, Japan defense ministers agree to work together on N Korea See in context

"While Japan wants the NK regime to change, China does not. So where is the agreement?"

There can't be any agreement based on the forcible regime change effort, NK is not trying to change the regime in Japan, so what is the Japan's right to change regime in NK or anywhere else. If there was no push by USA and few others for the regime change NK would not need to Nuclearise or even have such big military. By threatening them since the armistice the haters are forcing them to militarize for the fear of invasion like in Libya, Irak and so many others.

Kono said he urged China to create a "good environment" for Xi's planned visit while also conveying that the current unrest in Hong Kong should be resolved through peaceful dialogue.

How can one resolve peacefully when confronted by terror practicing violent hooligans with illogical demands and intention to split the country for the sake of foreign interests.

Posted in: Putin calls Japan-U.S. security alliance a threat See in context

Since the end of the WWII USA has been aggressor number one and Russia has a good reason to resent it and defend its security. Just the size and richness of the country is enough to make it a target for American and the axes of evil empires hungry for easy gold rush type bonancas. Japan has nothing to fear from Russia and while Russia does not really need the four disputed islands they would be absolutely stupid to give it to japanese territorial control, it would be like giving them to the USA military for the nuclear WMD's at the Russia's doorstep. The right way to do is use the islands for the good of both countries, build the trust and friendship and keep the Americans out of the area since it is far from American land and they should go home.

Posted in: One year after arrest, Ghosn seeks to throw out case against him See in context

To save the face of Japan and its justice system Japan government should step in and examine the case on its business merits; See what Gosens contribution to Nisan and Japan was and compare his remuneration with the others in similar positions and same industries world wide, faced with similar challenge and the same positive final success. If Gosen grabbed more than most of the other top executives than he should be judged for his excesses, if he is within the average or lower than they should override the judiciary and thank him instead. I know that so called justice don't work that way but that is the logical human way and definitely just way.

Using a word God when talking about shinto does not make much sense since shinto is about many different Kami or spirits and notion of god as in the religions originating in the middle east has no place in shinto.

Also this: "He is just a man whose contribution to the world is actually very small. He isn't an engineer, he isn't a scientist, he isn't a doctor, he isn't a philosopher, he isn't a writer, he is just a boring man." this sound as a perfect description of every "majesty" starting with entire British Royal Family and all across Europe and Middle east. Still the Japans Royals are more humble and more subjective to the people of the land than most of the other royals.

To all of the China haters here I would say that hate hurts the hater more than the heated. And if I was responsible for a billion and a half peaceful people no external pressure would stop me from eradicating small band of spoiled terrorist and hooligans. It is about time China corrects the error of the history and removes the special status of that foreign interest on its territory. Lease on HK expired and when it was started no provision for a special status was included,that was imposed by the Anglo American alliance under threats. Been to China and met a lot of happy people, they understand that freedom is complicated and can't be unlimited as is in the USA and other exploiting evil empires where the unlimited freedom is a right of the few to exploit majority, majority so brainwashed that while hungry, homeless, in debt over their ears they believe that they are free.

Gosun took the loser of a business and turned it into gold. He was paid less then any of the CEO's in Car industry. Japanese should be ashamed for biting the hand that feed them. But this is not only the Japan story, There are so many examples of executives being pushed out of the way after they built the empires that others want to take over. Remember Steve Jobs or George Zimmer and dozens of others.

Posted in: Japan says N Korea developing warheads to penetrate missile defenses See in context

All the countries surrounding NK have attacked someone at least once, NK never attacked anyone. All of this neighboring potential attackers have missiles and weapons of mass distraction, it is crazy for NK not to want to have them to. Is like a room full of teenagers with everyone having a hammer except the smallest weakest one.

Like the Chinese, he mistakenly thinks Western powers have designs on his country, when in fact nobody would want it.

> When was it last time that the western countries did not want to take over physically or economically every other country in the world. South Korea and Japan are part of this western slave driving and exploiting "west" .

Posted in: Japan is still winning the Southeast Asia infrastructure race against China, with pending projects worth almost one and a half times its rival. Japanese-backed projects in the region’s six biggest economies -- Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam -- are valued at $367 billion. China’s tally is $255 billion. See in context

Tip of the hat to both, Japan is a avantguard country with long history of superior products while China is coming out of the cheap labor tunnel into the light of high level technology and fast project realization at competitive price. Both countries will keep getting ahead of the rest of the hi end pack.

Man that in recent times achieved better than all others tpo exec's in auto industry and took less than most others in a same position gets abused because they do not feel that they need him any more. It is not the first time but it is a one of the worst examples of a kind.

Posted in: Japan, Russia accuse each other of military buildups See in context

It is absurd to claim the need for Japan to spend all that money on military because of China or North Korea. It is the pressure of the Americans to have Japan put few billions in to the American war industries and help Trump to be able to claim good business achievement. North Korea can make a lots of noise but aside from being able to fire few missiles before being taken of the map they are just a good excuse for the warmongers to sell the weapons. China is a different story, they will do what they want to do and Japan is not going to be invaded, not as long Japan does not force China to do it. And regardless of how much money Abe takes from his people and puts it into American pockets China can level Japan if it decides to do it. Safest thing for Japan is to stay economically strong and independent and to keep as neutral as possible. Making friends with China is better than being American proxy in their Clinophobia.

Posted in: Couples in first hearing on same-sex marriage say they are 'not special' See in context

the constitution should not be changed, what should be changed is the definition of marriage and a common law partnership. Marriage or getting a "Mar(y) by a man who wants to make a family, family is a family if it includes at least one child, is not the same as two people of the same or different sex living together in a emotional and financial partnership. The law should accord same duties and privileges to the any couple that register as a common law partners regardless of the sexs. Separately the Heterosexual couples after the birth of at least one offspring should be allowed the status of a family with whatever duties and benefits that carries by agreed laws. While I see a benefit of the child adoption by qualified couples of same sex I only see it as a viable solution if there is no opposite sex couples available because ideally having two parents of the different sex is better and more natural for a child. About being no different than the rest of the people? I wish that where but then I do not want to participate in heterosexual pride parade I would rather pride myself on my head than on my you know what.

Posted in: Is it terrorism? Post NZ attack, Muslims see double standard See in context

over last few weeks hundreds of christians slaughtered in Africa and the Philippines and no one is mention it, why do not the ones writing this article say at least something. It is now politically correct amongst the whites to bash the whites for political and media gains, but that will only cause more phobia and terror on both sides. When I offer you my other cheek you are supposed to kiss it not slamm it. Right now no one is asking Muslims to offer the other cheek but they should not slam the one offered to them as consolation. By pouring more oil on fire we are distancing ourselves from any peaceful solution.
