them to have to endure the educational system.
There are a lot of factors that would go to explain the
increase in violence:
Sheer, incredible frustration -- The poor folks work too
damn hard and their companies don't appreciate their
Not being able to spend time with their families -- If
you're at work or commuting from work a total of 12-14
hours a day, you're not at home with your kids raising
Bullying at School -- Horrific. The scars it can create
last a long, long time.
Very Few New Jobs -- If you can't earn a buck (or a few
yen) by working, go out and steal some.
I wish that the people in Japan could change their society
to the point where they could leave their jobs at 5:00 or
6:00 and then go home to be with their families.
