Ever since this crisis hit it has seemed to me that Japanese authorities downplay events in such a way as to give the impression that they just don't
care too much about the average person in Japan. I can understand how it's important to remain calm and collected during times like this, if for no
other reason than to be able to think clearly and logically. You have to admit they have a hell of a lot on their plate right now.
But really, would it kill them to show a little compassion? Get some food and water to the people in the shelters. Import it if you have to. They
seem to be putting TOO much emphasis on the money aspect of it. If they keep it up, then sure they will keep their economy afloat for the sake of the
rest of the world, but they are going to receive absolutely no respect from the rest of the world for not taking care of its own citizens. The same
citizens by the way who have played a large part in making their economy what it is today.
Just my opinion.
