The first one is about the Japan government has extend a state of emergency nationwide. The second one is also about the Japan government planning to hand out ¥100.000 (equivalent to around $930 USD) per person.

First of all, please let me say that when they first declared a state of emergency on the most endangered prefectures (seven of them), it was way too late to take actions.

Despite we were one of the first few countries that started to get endangered by the virus as well as South Korea, why didn’t they declare it at the right time? Furthermore, why didn’t they declare it nationwide even at the the beginning? It has been a few months since the virus started to change the whole world and we had enough time to get things organized as time went by.

What’s worse, Mr. Shinzou Abe (The PM) said the other day that we were not behind the rest of the world and we were acting accurately. I bet the whole nation must’ve gone like “what..!?”. Has he looked around the rest of the world!? There are no ordinances, punishment and fines at all. They have established some abstract regulations, however people won’t be fined or punished even if they do not obey those. I wouldn’t call it a state of emergency at all.

Secondly, there had been an idea to hand out ¥100.00 for a little while but it wasn’t considered because it was too unrealistic for the Japan government. They were speaking about setting some standards at some stage so that they could make things clear who to hand the cash out to. If they had time to discuss this kind of pointless matter, they could hand it out to every single person straightaway. Mr. Abe announced that he wouldn’t go for the ¥100.000 cash handout at the beginning, however he has changed his mind and said it is most likely to happen. What is behind the truth? Is he worried about votes for the next election? I bet he is..

I learnt some stuff through the articles above.

Firstly, earning trust from others is not that easy, thus you sometimes listen to others to see what is on their mind. You are the last one to make up your mind eventually but you need to look around and pay attention to the surroundings from time to time .

Secondly, actions speak louder than words. As long as you know exactly what you are doing, you don’t have to say that much. Because people will understand you sooner or later.

Lastly, learn wisdom from the follies of others. It is ok to make a mistake and the most important thing is that you should never keep making the same mistake. And even if someone makes a mistake or fails in something, do not laugh at him/her. That would be a good timing to learn something. Opportunities are everywhere!!

  1. A great read! It is fascinating how despite the virus affecting every country in the globe —governments are making individuals decisons rather than a collective one in response to combat this virus.

    Very well written 😊

    1. Thank you for reading😆
      I assume that is always the problem no matter where you go. There wouldn’t be that many governments that are trusted by the nations unfortunately..
