    Was Japan's earthquake and tsunami experience a resolve to population explosion issue?

      There is no such 'issue,' so it is a moot (and inappropriate) question.

      So, what exactly are you trying to say here, Don? How are the two connected, in your opinion?

      You appear to carry the WW2 Anti-Japanese sentiment that some in the Philippines have never let go of - even though that was another time and generation.
      However hard or sad that chip on your shoulder is to carry throughout your life, it is no justification for the cloaked arrogance of your post at a time when the Japanese people and others from all over the world have been seriously affected by natural disasters!
      And you claim to be an entity that teaches young minds - Amazing!

      Japan's earthquake has nothing to do with population explosion. it is a natural calamity.

    You're joking, right? Your post is in very, very poor taste.

        Irohner is correct.

    Besides being in poor taste, Japan already had a shrinking population so it is one of the few countries who would not need a natural disaster to curb population growth.

      However you look at it, mine is a sincere inquiry on the 'why' of this event? and of course other events involving life and death. Thanks for the comments.

    That's a pretty shockingly sick thing to say. It was a terrible tragedy not "caused" by anything Japan did.

      Admission of course is part of the cure.

    My two cents on this tasteless topic

    Shit happens, always has, always will.
    Bad things happen to good people, they also happen to bad people, period.
    Life ain't fair, sometimes its in your favor, sometimes not. There is no 'cure' for this, this is the nature of existence. Life is hard and always will be, life ends and it always will end. No amount of trying to 'cure' nature will ever work, cause nature ain't broke!
    It is sad what happened to the people of Japan, it is sad when bad things happen to decent people and many Japanese are decent folks. It also sucks that we wont all live for ever, GET OVER IT.

    Life is short, stop wasting yours trying to divine some sort of cure that will mean people don't have bad things ever happen again, not possible. Death is inevitable and is always a 'bad thing' for loved ones left behind.
