Japan's population has declined by nearly one million people in the last five years.

Wisely, the Japanese think in terms of centuries. They will not seek a "quick fix" by opening their country to immigration.

The Japanese have maintained a sense of "communion" both with each other and their Gods and I believe they will be strengthened as a people for these virtues. Thank you for the share!

One thing about the Japanese is that practice manners instead of political correctness. For the most part they have not sacrificed centuries of culture on the altar of globalism.

If you are not a Japanese descendant, is almost impossible to get even a temporary work visa, and nobody calls Japaneses as "racists, fascists bigots". Now imagine if a country in Europe adopt the same law...

We can do it!

It is an absolute myth that we NEED immigration for anything. What we NEED is legitimate government.

Haha! What a good idea! Too bad I don't have Facebook, because it would be really interesting to see if doing a challenge like that would have any impact! Post memes and see if it takes off.

The Japanese have some good sense. Last year China rescinded its one child policy, under which population underwent a slow rise. Now, couples can have two kids. Which means the slow rise will quicken. The country ran out of sufficient arable land earlier in this century. Which means, most likely, expansion into Russia. Why did the government switch policies? To fund retirement pensions!

I have said it before: if one generation were to do the noble thing and elect to die at age 60, the world would be spared a huge amount of suffering. I have little use for Milton Friedman, but he DID say that retirement pensions are one and all Ponzi schemes.
Read Herodatus: the ancient Massagetae permitted no one to live beyond age sixty. Harsh. But so are environmental ruin and large scale hunger harsh.

Unfortunately, if you google search you will find that Chinese ownership of foreign businesses spans globally - predominately Western Europe and the US (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/world/c ... nvestment/). Iceland is the only country (thus far) that has rejected Chinese wishes to acquire land. The lack of Chinese arable land has dictated now that the Chinese have purchased (and been allowed to purchase) large pieces of arable foreign land. The most notable would be in Australia - large cattle and dairy properties have been purchased (with the consent of the Australian government who have bent the 'foreign ownership laws'), where they bring in their own labour and export everything they produce on their own ships via wharfs they own.

Point here - it is not just a religious problem that troubles the world. Stormr

Religion, in part, is about addressing physical problems.

The situation with Australia is even worse than you hint. If you compare Australia's population to its arable land, you find the country is OVERPOPULATED already. So the government in effect, is putting the interests of foreign money ahead of those of its people. Doing this, mandating sacrifice of one's own and one's people's interests as a duty is the thumbprint of a certain stratum of religion, no?

Agreed. And it is only set to get worse. One of the issues with the country also is that they have a 'semi open door' policy for immigration - although I believe they are harsh on illegals/boat people, they will allow any and all via legal immigration channels ... from what I know of the social issues, this is detrimental. Once again it boils down to the 'certain stratum of religion' you refer to. Stormr

California just sent the governor a bill that protects illegal immigrants. In effect, a nullification of federal law. Cheap labor masquerading as humanitarianism. (And humanitarianism is leftover Christian ethics that confounds pity indulged with commendable conduct.)
