Good, now how about rolling out the vaccine with a little stronger sense of urgency ?

Pretty awful. It's a shame, a big big shame.
ALL of these vaccines should be going into care homes and into the arms of the 70 plus population, as well as all medical staff. NOT young, fit athletes.
Yes, at least we could have believed common sense dictates it, but all minds are on these useless Olympics.

This is a little too much. It feels like gender equality enforcement is in the hands of extremists. Careful with that one, we know where extremism that dictates what people should say/not say can end to.
To find "Ladies and gentlemen" potentially "offensive" is utterly ridiculous to say the least. What's next ?

Eesh...where to begin? The conception of rights began not as things prescribed by law or granted by the king, but that exist in nature. America’s Constitution is perhaps one of the strongest reflections of this view—the people declare what powers the government has, with specific reminders that the government has no powers to define or infringe upon various natural rights. But we can also find these sentiments in various documents throughout history, stretching back at least to the Magna Carta.
ROFL what ?
Yours is a view that a totalitarian government might take, but it is incompatible with most democracies, republics, and even some monarchies.
I mentioned some who would reduce imposing restrictions on a pandemic as an authoritarian regime, whichever finery you want to put up in the words you use, it's the same reduction as a simpleton would do. You just do it with much more classy flashy wordings to give you an apparel of wisdom.
It’s plainly untrue that “there is little you can do” against the law.
Because of a pandemic, state of emergency, you are obviously voluntarily taking away the context of this article.
And, no, none of this constitutes anarchy
When you feel you have the freedom to do whatever you want and ignore the law, this is anarchy: rejecting authority and do things on your own accord.
You have no reasoned argument to make, and so you resort to these labels like “anarchy” and “simpleton,” which are meaningless in the context you use them. You are merely making ad hominem attacks, not genuine arguments.
Ah you should have said so earlier that you had no intent to discuss. Your arguments are off topic and would better befit a passionate philosophical (the art to use time to better waste it) debate among idealists.
Now I suggest you check article 12 and 13 of the constitution and review the inspiration of your poetry
Other posters are right to call you out for being obnoxious and offensive.
Sure they are, simpletons hardly accept being told the truth, as cruel as it may be, but a truth that is void of idealism, which is the bias lens through which you are looking at the case.

8pm is an arbitrary time based on nothing and can only be considered a foolish edict. If an edict is issued that you can only wear red color clothing after 6pm when there is a pandemic, would you follow such a foolish edict without question?
Perhaps you will, but I suspect most of us will not.
What an idiocy to write. I maintain my statement of simpleton is again very appropriate here.
Under the revised law, businesses can be fined up to 300,000 yen if they do not comply.
I don't see any edict, the article mentions a "law", hello ?
Can you prove that not closing the restaurants after 8 PM had no effect at decreasing the daily numbers of infection from January to March ?

It's your duty as a citizen to resist unjust laws. And that's nowhere near anarchy, by the way. An unbridled and unaccountable government is something worse than anarchy.
And that is how a simpleton would analyze the situation: comparing the pandemic to a coup, comparing shooting people vs imposing shorter closing hours. Comparing any "attempt" on "freedom" as an authoritarian regime: that's what simpletons uses as an excuse to get what they want.

is illegal and unconstitutional as it infringes the right to freedom of business
for heavens sake, in any country the frame of your « freedom » is set by the law. If the law says you must close because of a pandemic there is little you can do. These poor fellows are using the arguments of simpletons that believe they are free to do whatever they want and ignore the law: that’s anarchy by the way.

J- govt will consider setting up panel of experts to study Britain,s method, the report should take no longer than 6 months to release. But as everyone knows Japanese arms are thinner than Europeans and those needles mighty long, so....
not to mention that the experts final report must be able to be sent through a fax

US polls don't usually accurately reflect the true will of the people
That is what an ignorant in statistics would say.
Strange how those who are afraid of the virus demand that they be allowed to go out and about and those who are not afraid of it be forced to stay home. This doesn't seem right.
Ever considered what isn't right may be what your concerned mind tries to put together ?

It’s downright hypocritical if not stupid to pretend to care for people’s jobs when you don’t care for their lives!!
it is stupidity, the one that cannot be cured and is utterly dangerous, ergo discussing with this lot is a complete waste of time. Yet keeping them at bay where they are will help wiping this covid away for good.

Glad to see that the majority of people have sense. Anti vaxxers, conspiracy theories spreaders and other loonies of the sort are best kept where they are, we don't want them to spread worst than the covid: their utter stupidity.

By focusing on the choice of color, instead of the resulting visibility or lack thereof, schools are in effect granting themselves the authority to look at students’ underwear, and also in effect forcing students to let teachers, classmates, and school staff know what color of bra and panties they’re wearing on school days.
Oh they'd be quite horrified to see what would come to these teacher if this "check" happened to my daughter.
