Tokyo’s governor Shintaro Ishihara has indicated that his next target is the Internet.
Bloody oath, what is it with this loon? The sad thing is, I can't see him not getting re-elected. His policies more generally do speak to Japan's aging population, making it very difficult for Tokyo's resident geeks to unseat him. Japan has compulsory voting, so you can't make change just by rallying minority groups that don't normally vote in large numbers as you might in the US. At this rate, he'll die of old age before anything can be done to turn things around.
wait im a tad confused, why can't you see him getting re-elected again? Cause like you said that his policies speak to Japan's aging population which is more than the younger population....I see a greater chance of this douche bag coming back for a 4th term. cue headdesk in 3..2...1...
I said I can't see him *not* getting re-elected. ie. I see him being re-elected.
I love Japan. But this guy can go fuck himself.
has anyone ever thought that censoring the internet might be a good thing? lol
Censor this fucka!! I hate censors and the like...fuck the all
It's in Japan.
The concern is that if Ishihara does something which screws up the anime/manga industry, then we all lose.
Bobby Kotick needed a Japanese counterpart in the East.
