"Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara said, "The identity of the Japanese people is selfishness. The Japanese people must take advantage of this tsunami as means of washing away their selfish greed. I really do think this is divine punishment."
They are also very proud.
What will win?
Is the Tsunami enough?
I do not think so, they will deny the evidence, against any law of smartness.
If you are in need, and they are, you´d better play the humble part.
Nobody likes to help a proud, self sufficient liar.
Nevertheless I whatch TV and I can just see desperate people, humans like me who in a few minutes lost all what they had, including dear ones.
My heart is with them, because I strongly believe that behind any facade of greed or selfishness or proudness, there is a frighthened human beeing, who asks himself: is it worth to be a survivor?
