take a strong look Japan, you're Abe-youth are getting ready for the next stages. Maybe that was too terrible a thought so it was better to find something across the planet that was similar.

why would any teenager in Japan know what is going on in the USA? More likely this has been going on in Japan for a while and it has coincidentally made a rather tenuous connection at best

This makes no sense. You want to lower the emissions of vehicles and K's do that very well. Taxes should be based on emissions and size in general and that would keep their status while also taxing the appropriate markets towards being leaner and greener. That way if you want to drive big you pay for it, otherwise rewarded for driving smaller vehicles. If there's no advantage then what's the point? It's just punitive.

Japan should be celebrating everyday they are off nuclear, have a parade, and start working with the public on making their country based on renewable sources. That's no small feat, would take decades, and not only would it help reduce fossil fuel usage over time but also give people a goal and dream to work towards. Do something positive on a national scale. Give people hope towards the future.
I've met Japanese solar researchers in Canada, as well as lots of engineers and scientists. Japan has the ability, more than most, to put kaizen to renewables and see where it goes. I think it can happen, but sadly it can't until the oyagi's who sold out the country are eventually taken by time.
It's out there though, ask young people. They're waiting. I for one will always cheer them on!

at least they got the Olympics before all the new laws and incarcerations come in. 4ch servers are not in Japan though and under California law I think, so I suspect an odd legitimacy growing online where real life isn't open enough

Reminds me that laws are made and passed in Japan for the benefit of the USA, not for the people and by the people its supposed to represent. Shame.

Japan was practically free of nuclear with most of them shut down, and just had to embark on a renewable greener direction. One that would engage the population and inspire young and old towards a change and a more prosperous future. But nope, unfortunately this was against all the vested interests and thus has been brought back. What a tragedy.

The grounds to be more like the USA should be that the USA should be more like Japan, hence Snowden wouldn't be the thorn in their sides. Openness and light ruins the secrets and whispers of governments, anywhere.
