I live and interact with the people of Japan daily. Yes, it takes them a while to get it together due to some uniqueness of the culture here. Yet,
despite all the problem Japanese society is facing, I still think Japan will pull though somehow. The people here pretty much know what has to be
done. There are just some cultural process they need to go though in order to make it happen.
Yet, people here do seem willing to skip some usual, and very traditional, cultural processes in order to move things along.
The biggest problem currently is politics. The politicians are being a stubborn road block to getting anything done. They are really struggling to,
not only make wise decisions, but make any decision in general. Noda is making tough decisions and many of his decisions are highly unpopular over
here. People really hate this guy.
We got a national election coming up in which the Japanese people will choose a new central government. There are rumors Japan may end up with it`s
first minority government in post war history. That might be the wake up call the politicians need.
