Check the Youtube Video and kind of comments written.Mostly racism comments. And before the west points a finger at any country, they should look at their own system and change it. Japan as a country has it's own faults and weaknesses, especially it's own justice system, but they run it according to their own culture and understanding. Still, Japan has the lowest cases of crime in the world, and it is pretty safe. People who come here and say racists remarks, don't even respect the people or their culture, and feel superior to everyone else are the ones who should shut up.

He is brave enough to defend his country. I don't see anything wrong. The west critics always attack other countries and humiliate them, yet they are supposed to say nothing? It's like they have the best system in the world. Any Japanese person here who say some stupid remark is most likely the one who worships the west. Problem with many western countries is they don't respect other countries and think they are always at the top of everyone else, yet they have the most corrupt system in the world. Full of iniquities and injustices. And I don't really understand why so many Japanese people worship the white people anyway. It is very weird.

Facebook or no facebook, many people are becoming digitized and losing their natural social and interaction skills. And it is also sad most people are empty. The only share disgusting things. Companies use all the available means to target people, spreading their gospel of consumerism. Unless people switched off their digital mode, and stay away from social media, nothing is gonna change. Human stupidity is spreading much faster than intelligence.

At least Abe is doing something. Good or no good, critics will always have something negative to say. Lifetime employment does help in family stability among other important areas. At least it keeps the population stable, in terms of people are less worried and stressed about money and future. You can't compare Japan and USA in terms of opportunities, output, land, resources etc. And the western model of development is very misleading, though a lot would argue because they want to. Most western countries are heavily indebted, that includes states. Only that they don't reveal the real statistics. I do respect Japanese people, in the fact that they do anything to survive and make a living. The funny part is those who normally tell people to go and enjoy life and stop worrying can't even do it themselves. Simply because someone has money and savings doesn't mean they should spend it. It is good to respect people for their handwork, and not judge them as fools.

Military is not always for defense. It is a business sector itself. Legalization of the military also permits the export and manufacture of arms, which drives the income of the government and that of a country. Majority whenever they hear about Military they think about war all the time.

Sin knows no age, and this reflects a failing society that doesn't educate it's young ones of the dangers of doing something like this. Lust has no bounds, sometimes these under aged girls pose as adults, they love money and want to experiment with all kinds of things, including sex and drugs.
where there is no love and care in a society, not even the government can protect, and one person being caught doesn't mean that it's gonna stop, and Older women too do have sex with young boys here, nothing ever being reported.

Learning the language is good, but the most important of all is learning how to communicate and get a long with people. Most people focus on language excellence but forget or ignore simple things, like being humble, patient, understanding and kind. Such people no matter how qualified they are academically, no one wants to hire them regardless. Money is with people, and to get it, you need people skills, and people skills have nothing to do with foolish pride.

hey, am not hating, am just stating. I don't approve gay marriage, call me weird or whatsoever. and any Man or Woman attracted to an opposite sex would feel or say the same, apart from a few who pretend. I am open, I prefer being open and honest. And sharing an opinion is not a bad thing. Thinking and reasoning independently doesn't mean that one is stupid. That is why I said so, I prefer being a loner in personal decision making. You don't have to agree or disagree with me.

And don't hate me for not liking gays. At least am honest. I don't pretend to like people or say I love people who I don't even interact with. And don't be surprised if I said I had gay friends. I tell them whatever they do should remain their personal business. I am not a judge, and I don't change my stand to please someone. These days both homosexuals and heterosexuals have the same problem, so don't try to make it sound cool to be gay. And I don't attend weddings, personally I see it ironical to attend a wedding that won't even last, where deception plays the main role.

LFRAgain: In a free world, people are free to do or say whatever they think it is right for them. That's the part I don't care. The only part I care is about myself and my family. You are either a person who is defined and stand by Morals and values, or a person who conforms to the society and worldly pressure. It's not only homosexuality I don't approve, I disapprove many other things. Like when some people think they are better and superior than others, where they think their culture is better than others, and start pushing their ways to be respected and obeyed.

The world has moved from the phase of enlightenment to the phase of destruction. Why? A family builds a society, a society builds a country. If you wanna demolish a building, start be destroying the core. Women were the strength of a family, they made families go through hard times and led them to success. Feminism is preaching otherwise, portraying women as slaves of men. why complain divorce of heterosexuals without looking at the core cause? Second way of undermining family values is promoting homosexuality. Again, homosexuality becomes a problem, but what is the cause? It is very difficult for a properly raised up child by both parents to become a homosexual. It's all psychology, and the environments defines us. Children learn from what they see. You could start exposing your own kids to homosexuality and you will see how they will grow up to be. I don't hate Japan for being conservative, that conservationism if what has kept them going for centuries. The so called "Western Values" are tearing them apart. And by so called civilized, do you mean conforming to the western Culture? Those who treat you as an inferior race are the ones you want to be like?

In a lawless society, there is no difference between good and evil, no morals, no values, and those who have no morals have no values, have no stand and would just fall for anything. Selfish acts becomes the defining values of a society, and conformity shames the whole society. Personally, I don't have a problem with gay people, it's their choice, but their acts don't define me, and I don't support what I don't value. For me it's about being a loner, a person who questions everything before agreeing to be a participant. I don't follow the mass. People should be responsible for their own acts, and judgement is upon them not me. I have boundaries as a person. The problem with the world society today is it has no stand, it moves with the currents. The world is corrupted, and anything that a man starts, and these corrupt ways are being pushed into the young minds of young people. A society defined by it's acts will always support anything that comes up, no matter how wicked it is. A society defined by morals will always oppose what they don't approve. Homosexuality falls in this category, and I don't see anything wrong to question. Questioning shouldn't be seen as judgment, and if you view me as a moron for questioning, then I prefer being a moron. My intelligence is not defined by other people, It's defined by what I view and stand for. You can be a homosexual I really don't care, but don't try to push or force your stupid values into mine, or those I care for.....

The corporate Taxes are high for most companies, and labor costs, yet the market prices of many products have gone down for the past few years. The cost of inventions is also high. Much has to do with the market, but the blame falls on the government on it's wasteful spending and increasing of Taxes that are driving many companies out of business. Lower the salaries and increase the taxes means people will stop spending on anything luxurious and focus on the basic needs of living. This largely kills the domestic market which has kept the Japanese companies going for a long time.

when reading this, I don't see the problem with the Mother Only, but also with the comments here. Such things are supposed to say something about the society change, where people are abandoned and living a solitary life full of depression. I think people don't just kill, or leave their loved ones to die because they want to, but because they have no strength nor hope. I don't think it is right to Criticize people for their wickedness and blame them with bitter words, when you don't even love or care about them...
