- Stress Relief 

 

This week we have a student suggested topic, so let's see what we know about this topic.

 

How can we reduce stress? What is the most effective method, and is it maybe better to prevent stress in the first place?

Is there an issue with stress in Japan?

What causes it?

Is there anything being done about stress for Japanese people?

 

Let's talk about that.

- Personal preference vs. Politcal correctness  

 

We all have our own personal feelings towards all kinds of things. We don't have to tell anyone about them, and we don't have to act on them.

If we have a bias or a dislike towards a certain person, or group of people, we may be considered to be bad people, we could be labelled "racist", "sexist" or "fascist".

But this is part of what is known as political correctness, you should not hate anything.

 

Do you think political correctness is good, and do you think you should (due to societal pressure) not hate anything/anyone?

 

There was a case in which a elementary school vice-prinicipal distributed this letter to parents. http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/02/17/national/osaka-preschool-scrutinized-passing-slurs-koreans-chinese/#.WSpCtjOB31w

Now, seeing as she acted on her hate in some way (distributing this letter), I understand it can be seen as wrong or bad. But should she be seen as a bad person for having her own personal views towards a certain person or group of people?

 

Why does society care so much about what you feel towards others(in the case of hate)?

Let's talk about that.
