Japanese media often report that Japanese youths abandon their global ambitions and blame them for their inaction. Is this true?
This is really an important piece of information no media or people talk about. Media often blast that Japanese youths basically do not have global ambitions. But the decline in Japanese students in American universities stems from more complicated reasons. Many people dealing this issue should be aware of these statistical frauds, otherwise they are as incompetent as the very youths they are bashing. This information is very difficult to get even though the other claims are ubiquitous in the media
It is possible to glimpse twitter conversations among people, whose opinions are similar to mine but not the same. It is interesting and funny to see some people are just picking up convenient information that only support their view points. Without good editorial control, most of the information floating in twitter is rubbish, but still there may be a chance that precious information may pop up from twitter. But it is not from perpetual twitters who cannot distinguish between balking and opinions.
Immersing yourself in the flood of information generated by others will never make you unique nor exceptional. Twitter may make like-minded people around the world come together. This can be beneficial for good causes but like minded terrorists will also get together to destroy the society. It is becoming a scary world. Only way to prevent this is to solve social injustice and inequality since weaker voiceless people can blow up really big guys who thought they are immune from the others.
老害 (perils imposed by older generation)
This is totally relative concept, and young folks who complain about this will be, for sure, targeted by their juniors who would call the current young folks as defunct seniors. Generation gap is as old as human history since each generation has different skills as society evolves. Stop looking for some irrelevant excuses and focus on what they can change or do. Blind shot-gun targeting on all seniors make them (twenties-thirties) feel better but they should watch out their back since their juniors (teens) are stocking up their new ammunition to blow up their own enemies (twenties-thirties).
In the end, they should not try to change society as a whole. They should just create their own companies or parallel alternative societies: testing many since most of them will fail. If that is difficult then they just should try to change the regulations instead of targeting people. The older people they want to change are too entrenched with the dysfunctional system — like Fujiwara who seems to be a remnant of a stone age. These dinosaurs would prefer to be dead than accepting unknowns.
In some sense, Rakten or IT companies may just be able to change some part of social norms. They are selling concepts and their own survival totally depends on constantly evolving technologies so simultaneity is the essence of their business since a perfect model would not emerge in software industries. Hard manufacturing industries have to be more careful since they need to live with their investments for long time.
