Japanese Enduring – A Model For The Rest of The World


The Japanese are model for the world.  In both today’s Times as well as yesterday’s there are articles about how the Japanese people are handling their crises.  Self-restraint is being practiced everywhere. Jishuku is collective mourning and it demands that self-restraint be practiced.  The cacophony is diminished. No aggressive sales tactics or political campaigns. The lights have been dimmed to conserve electricity and all activity is subdued. Although they have little food the ethos of “Gamam” requires that one endure and maintain a cheerful stoicism.  They are very civilized.  I can’t imagine what would happen in any other part of the world with similar events.
