Definitely worthwhile to read!


Usually I am not a big fan of Japan Times, because the depth of the topics researched or the professionalism of their journalistic approach seems not sufficient to me, but this time I have to say I am truly impressed about a most recent article: “The eerie silence of Japan’s dying democracy“, which describes very good how over time self-interest rose over the basic aspects of a democracy. What a cosy interconnected world of politics, bureaucracy and the old-established Japanese business?
I guess as long as the pain threshold of the majority of the Japanese society is not reached, only very limited democratic actions will be taken. Consequently without any public outcry everything is fine in Japan, isn’t it? Or maybe I simply misunderstand and dramatize present day Japan…
