Japan earthquake

category: offtopic [glöplog]
The Japanese are an intelligent and industrious people. I'd love to see more Japanese people here in Vienna. Everybody would benefit from them.

Adok: have you even thought atleast a lil about the japanese cultural background. Mosdef nobody of them regular people (not business guys) there would take that cultural shock out of that dilemma and come to austria to work together with that guys like you. And I'm not even talking about that obvious language barrier.

@ Adok: I think they might tend to prefer our warm summer sun and cuddly koalas to seeing where Hitler was born and your tales of an earthquake in 1590.

It's not what Austrians can do for the beleaguered Japanese, it's what the beleaguered Japanese can do for the Austrians!

The Japanese = Adok's new slave race?

I guess Adok will be glad to have some in-depth discussion-circles about unit 731 with his new found japanese friends in vienna then. Maybe discuss new camps a little.

Sadly our (the Australian Government's) dealings with refugees is already fairly fucked up anyway - asylum seekers held in "detention centers"

that's the first place an asylum seeker should be put when entering a foreign country - until it can be determined that they application for asylum is genuine. an open-door policy to anyone grandmother wishing to enter your county is bad for the people born their, both economically and socially. and it is the welfare of the nation that should take priority.

don't you agree? or are you a globalist whore who thinks its ok to saturate countries with cheap labor and inflate demand for scarce resources (such as housing) - just so your local supermaket chain has a pool of employers willing to work for E1.50 per hour, and share a home with 20 other immigrants?

Ok - I'm generalising here but...
Most of the asylum seekers to Aust. shores are not poor, it costs thousands (x10 for families) of USD to get here from most 3rd world countries. The money mostly goes to people smugglers in Indonesia who have connections in Oz. The "refugees" get stuffed into a leaky boat with no food or water then cast adrift hopefully heading for Oz. 99.99% of them get caught by either the RAN or the coastguard.
Then they get sent to prison. Separated from their families/children/spouses. Housed indefinitely in fairly spartan (to you or I) conditions.

Not @ all but if you were in the really unfortunate position of being an international refugee - be it from political unrest, religious intolerance or even natural disasters, would you like to be imprisoned indefinitely & separated from your family upon entering a new & hopefully compassionate country? (Let's be honest - driving across a border in a truck is a shit load easier than drifting for several days in the open ocean with no food or drink now is it?).

do we have a sign of life from Tomohiro?

tbh, i do not understand what you're talking about. here's an analogy: the door of my personal home is not open to homeless bums nor is my home a safe house for women being beaten by their husbands. there are many missfortunae people in this world but it is not my obligation to offer them shelter. even if i wanted to, their is not enough food in my fridge to feed them all.

many years ago, Europeans were in the exact same position as people from 3rd world countries. we were oppressed under feudal system, savery in all but name, common to all of Europe. those were the days of unrest, rebellions, uprisings, bloodshed,political demonstrations and foundations. from that came a certain quality of life for regular people of Europe...it was not offered on a plate, it was fought for over generaions (even if few remember the struggles today)

you stay in your home and you make the changes you deserve happen. you do not run from the stink like a weasel and destroy the standards others have fought hard to establish in their own home. (re: access to housing, working-wage, school places, public health care)

and, btw, i am not only talking about 3rd world non-european countries. im talking aboutall economic migration. eastern european migration, for example, has the same effect on northern and western european countries (saturation of cheap labor, housing, public services). i am not a bigot - it is common sense.

button: What about braindrain then? Why do you have to classify people as Australian, English, Finnish or whatever. Yeah, go ahead and call me a global faggot. I don't see your point with the bloodshed of feudal times statement either. It's not like we are all living in peace right now. No war is fought for true freedom, no bloodshed can happen that benefits both parties of a conflict. Humans are selfish, self-centred, egoist animals. Every war is fought in the name of securing my gain over yours. Do you genuinely think the US is in Iraq and Afghanistan for asserting the freedom of people?

Pick your words carefully as well. The people you are calling homeless bums are most likely those who seek refuge; such as Africans and Middle Easterners. They are not homeless bums, they are human beings. They have a home too, the planet Earth.

Now, think carefully, if they truly are homeless bums; pray tell, who made them homeless bums in the first place? Looks like your beloved bloodshed is not actually a byproduct of seeking of freedom but more like colonising and abusing the people of certain geographic locations, effectively rendering them slaves and unable to develop further. Do you really think Africa is as it is because its people are stupid or lazy? Or do you think, your oh-so-amazing welfare state owes unimaginable amounts of apology to these people?

We were oppressed in the feudal system, correct, but are we any better now? Our political figures continue to do anything in their power in order to maintain or add-up to their power. We're living in a time of unrest, rebellions, uprising and political demonstrations. Or are you living in a plastic bubble? Forgot about Tunisia, Egypt and Libya?

People demonstrate and act rebellious because that's what we do. We are humans, we are social creatures. We complain when we're not happy. But in many cases like these, bloodshed follows. And certainly not in the name of freedom, but in the name of stopping those who seek freedom.

No matter how much you want to draw meaningless convex hulls on a paper and claim that you are the superior one within that hull in the end on the terrain of the planet Earth there exists no separation of land or property. The planet doesn't belong to no-one.

To finalise, those people, you classify as not deserving to live in the same conditions as you do, want equality. They want their liberty from the forces who abused them to render themselves superior. They want equal opportunities because they are sick of being slaves of someone atop of them.

These people you dislike and want to avoid; they have an idea. And no matter how much bloodshed you create to stop them, you can't and you won't be able to. Because, ideas are bulletproof.

Decipher: don't feed the troll. When someone on a web-forum starts talking about "no obligation to help" and "immigration problems", the correct response is to back out of the room slowly and let this person spew in their own mindless filth. :)

back out of the room and open the gas valves.

_docd: I'm fine. Thank you.
I'm living in osaka. There is no affect from the earth quake.

tomohiro: good to hear that, I've still not heard from my friend in osaka. Are communication networks ok?
added on the 2011-03-17 12:17:37 by psonice psonice
I didn't see any communication network problems in osaka after the earth quake.
There was small earth quake in osaka, but it is trivial.
