 - Death - 

How is death treated in Japan?

Why is there so much emphasis put on the body of the dead in Japan?

In western culture, the soul/spirit is very important, and the body is considered just a shell.

 

Are there often issues with the will or family rivalry for inheritance in Japan?

In western countries, it is very common for families to fight and even end up breaking up because they don't agree on how the inheritance should be split.

 

Do people still perform burials in Japan? Why do most people in Japan cremate their family members?

 

Let's talk about that.

 - Weapon control - 

What do you think about weapon control in Japan?

 

America has a lot of problems concerning weapon control or possibly, not enough weapon control. If you compare the amount of murders in the US compared to countries like Japan, England or other countries with strict weapon control, the US has a unbelievably ridiculous amount of murders, and a large percentage of them are done with guns.

 

Also, in America, people are able to carry weapons in the street if they get a special permit, recently a man with a concealed carry gun tried to stop a violent attack on a woman, and he was shot by the violent criminal. He didn't survive. Do you think that if weapon control was better in the US that something like this wouldn't have happened?

Why do many pro-weapon citizens of America think it's ok to be able to buy fully automatic weapons and why do you think they think they need it?

 

Lets talk about that.
