Unfortunately, the decisions politicians make cause the citizens hardship or joy.
Success or failure.
Prewar symbolism in education is making a comeback.
Textbooks are being revised, glossing over questionable events.
The constitution will be revised to allow for Japan to become the aggressor
The young are being prepared for war!

Japanese politicians routinely refute the past with some disparaging remark - the problem is that the Japanese are not aware of their militaristic past and take a (still) superior attitude via a via their standing in Asia.
Lodging a protest over known historical events shows the Japanese government to be extremely childish.....

Japan is already vastly overpriced on scores of items.
To imagine that most people have space to hoard large amounts of provisions in their homes is laughable.

Toyota is sitting on record profits and is increasing wages here in Japan.
The wage in India is a paltry when compared to the cost of a car sold in India and when compared with of an Indian worker.
The Japanese had to riot in the sixties to get fair wages - will the Indians have to do the same?

Banks don't control economies!
The supply of labour,weather,technological innovations etc do.
Already I have seen an imbalance in retail orders in Japan this month. I can the numbers being skewed this month.
Next month will see a massive slump!
The weaker yen is going to hit the Japanese in their pockets as they pay more for oil,food,clothes etc.
The trouble with the BOJ is that the members create money out of thin air!
They have nil experience of real world business.

The meaning of a referendum seems to be lost on the west and Japan
From Merriams online-
1 a : the principle or practice of submitting to popular vote a measure passed on or proposed by a legislative body or by popular initiative b : a vote on a measure so submitted 2 : a diplomatic agent's note asking for government instructions
It seems that popular initiative has spoken......

Under Japanese law, nuclear plant suppliers are usually exempt from damage claims in the event of an accident
And this why nuclear power plants cannot be considered as a source of acceptable energy.

Even Cambodians can afford to buy and use solar tech!
The Japanese can't?
The Japanese can't have solar power as the Germans do?
There can't be solar panels on the flat apartment roofs of Yokohama,Tokyo and Osaka?
What stops Japan having solar power generation as the Spanish have?
The argument that Japan has to start dangerous outmoded reactors just doesn't wash......
Posted in: Prime Minister Abe and the nuclear industry are hoping the Japanese people and the world will forget the victims and the terrible lessons of Fukushima, hoping that they will allow the restart of old, risky reactors. What we should instead forget is an energy system that is dependent on old, dirty, and dangerous technologies like nuclear and fossil fuels.
