Photos That Prove Japan Is Not Like Any Other Country
Checking out some of the other photos back up my belief we can learn from other countries to do things a better way. Here's an example...
"Most Japanese Schools Don't Have Custodians. Instead, The Students Do The Cleaning Themselves As A Part Of Showing Gratitude To The School And Learning How To Become More Productive Members Of Society "
Ya I know we would like to think of ourselves in this country as if we are the only great innovators throughout the world. While we here in the United States are staring at our naval most of the other progressive countries are pulling ahead of us.
Some in order to avoid U.S. sanctions are starting to trade no longer using the U.S. Dollar. Others have been burning trash to energy for over a decade. Several countries are depending half (some far less) on fossil fuels. Europe's been using traffic round-abouts for years. These to name a few.
Certainly no single country has cornered all the great ideas but this doesn't mean we can't use the ones working for them. Since they've already gone through expensive trial and error this could be a huge advantage for us. Instead we seem to be obliviously stuck in our ways lagging behind in many areas.
They say "no man is an island". Neither is a country. Currently other nations are gravitating towards greater unity and the sharing of better ideas. We on the other hand seem to be drifting away from those. This should be of concern as to where our nation will end up in a few years.
