Taro Aso has found himself in hot water again — this time for apparently blaming childless couples for not having babies.

Aso quickly — and reluctantly — apologized Tuesday, two days after saying childless people are to blame for the country’s rising social security costs and its aging and declining population
“If it made some people feel uncomfortable, I apologize,” Aso, 78, said after drawing complaints over the comments he made Sunday before voters at a seminar in his home electoral district of Fukuoka Prefecture.

During his speech, the outspoken finance minister and deputy prime minister pointed out that the longevity of Japanese people has increased by about 30 years compared with the 1940s when he was born.

Then he touched on Japan’s snowballing social security costs and said, “We have so many nuts out there blaming elderly people” for causing the present situation. “That’s wrong.”

He continued, “The problem is with those who didn’t give birth.”

On Monday, Aso told reporters he would retract the remark “if it caused misunderstanding.” He didn’t elaborate on what it was that he had intended to say.

During a news conference, also Monday, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga emphasized that the government is doing its utmost to address issues regarding the nation’s graying society coupled with low birthrates.

Aso made a similar remark in 2014, and was eventually forced to admit that his comment had been improper.

^^^^Sounds like the simple truth to me. If people want social security, then they have to contribute to society with well raised children, and with productive work and savings.

Society fails when too many precious snowflakes deny this and demand everyone around them deny it too for the sake of their feeelings.

Japan's population is 126 million, tightly packed in an archipelago where a lot of the land is mountainous terrain. The country has been overpopulated, they could go on and thrive with a population of 60M-80M.
 
^ Truth. The elite is concerned about declining populations because it hurts "economic growth", which is a euphemism for the shafting of the middle class while they run off with all the fucking money an power.

Nature always comes up with interesting ways to balance out the population.

Nature's natural response to there being way too many people all over the place there and not to mention how much of the male population there is addicted to the internet and video games? Japan's youth are the biggest part in a society consumed by their technology even more than us it seems. You see these American boys over here that just care about their video games and many of them are content being like this, not a day has been spent trying to change their look or anything. Weird.

Well, in their case, it's a euphemism for "We're gonna have a shit ton of old people to support and not enough economic activity to do it."
I would not want to be a childless man in his late 50s in Japan right now.

Social security simply means keeping what is already yours.

Japan also has a weird macroeconomic situation - their debt to GDP ratio is over 200% as their Central Bank keeps printing yen and buying up various assets around the country. I wonder if they will ever have a financial crisis or can keep doing this to infinity.

Italy's economy is widely seen as a walking corpse. Yet, look at Japan's debt to GDP ratio.

How are they about western guys with visible tattoos? I know there's stigma about j guys with them because of yakuza stuf so is it a hindrance? Would a muscular westerner with tats be avoided?

Strange. Japan wages keep going down and prices keep rising. Is this the result of funny money doings by the central bank or what?

Globalists can buy property and the floodgates have been opened to the brown turd world asians which you now see everywhere in Tokyo.

Look at the Abe humiliation thread. They got him by the balls...

Money is generally flooding into property as the stock markets all over the world are crazy overvalued and there isn't much else to invest in, hence large rent increases.

I doubt that that is the cause of the rent increases, as the reasoning is the other way around: the yield compresses.

They have found ways to increase yields by making house / apartment sharing the new norm in Tokyo where most of the opportunities are. Even with management costs you make way more shekels renting out rooms (which are often pretty much plywood "cages" in a larger apartment instead of a real room) than renting out apartments and this in turn affects apartment prices as well.

Work in the countryside is often at effective third world wages with overtime - albeit in a clean setting, so people go to Tokyo regardless - hoping to make it some day...

To increase yields serviced apartments are getting popular as well to circumvent rent caps so people pay 1-3k for 20-30m2 all over the world where rent caps are in place.

I have no idea what the fuck is going on there. No significant feminism, no fat epidemic, no state meddling into the usual domestic issues... yet a quarter of their males have gone herbivore and now it seems that even more women are doing the same. I don't think it's just due to corporate culture and difficult life - it's a mystery!

What's particularly puzzling is that we think that "attraction is not a choice", yet it's a country full of people who are saying "meh, attraction isn't worth it". I can't imagine what would cause so many young people - who don't yet have to worry about marriage, children and obligations to be affected by depression - to completely lose their gina tingles and the natural male drive for banging hot women.

In Denmark, you don't bang women. In Japan, women don't bang YOU!
Their civilization lost its martial, life giving spirit when they lost WWII. That's what happened. Read Yukio Mishima.
 
Japan also suffers from heavy porn addiction. Regular (real people) porn is not enough for them, they also turned anime into porn, hentai. Even regular manga/anime is very sexual. Just look at the females and muscular guys in Dragonball and that is a show for kids and teens.
