I never used to understand why Japan came up with the idea that when you fail tremendously in public matters, you are expected to kill yourself. Then the American financial crisis hit, and I watched as everyone with power, who had failed miserable, walked off with massive fortunes. Meanwhile, those who were children as these criminals were bilking the country are unable to find a job.
If these assholes at the top killed themselves, it’s not even so much a matter of justice being done. Rather, it would create some job openings and save us from having to pay for the retirement benefits of thieves. It’s not about morality, it’s economical.
