Tech's right. Wow, I can't understand some of these other mindsets...You people are unflinching.
^that aint kool homie...
no one is telling them they can't be fat. however japan is giving financial incentive for them to be healthy. yes this is coming from someone who believes strongly in God (your body is a temple isn't it?). and they are totally within their means to do so. it is no different than China putting more taxes on families who have more than one child to help curb the population problem. this is Japan's version for an obesity problem. if a population is largely overweight it greatly increases the chance that they will incure health related problems, thus putting a greater strain on the healthcare system. no one's telling them what size they should be, just giving them incentive to be healthier, check yourself.
they're in no way limiting what you can eat or what you do, they are, simply put, just trying to give incentive to get society healthier. you would be restricting their choice if you outlawed certain foods. i don't know why you object to a nation trying to help their populations overall health. your looking at it in black and white terms and not looking at it's goal for implemention which is a very positive thing.Quote
it's like last year when law-makers were being "persuaded" by the pharmaceutical company Merck to make it mandatory for young girls to receive the HPV Vaccine. you think politicians and pharmaceutical companies give a fuck about the health of your children? they only care about what's in it for them.
call me crazy, but whenever the government says they are doing something that they claim is for the good of the people.......I'm a little skeptical. :wutyousay:
slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.
Its a great idea in theory... but you cannot force people into changing things like that.
She really looks like someone set her face on fire and put it out with a bike chain.
good point and that is true. it is easy to see why companies would promote a vaccination, purely for profit and i agree i don't think for a second they actually care about those girls well being. however i don't see what japan has to benefit from this? do you? if you think they do i would like to know :dunnodude:
you're comparing this to other times in history when nations have tried to bring about mandates/laws akin to this, but japan's motivation for this seems to me from the article i read to have a motive that is pure of heart. this is being used as a motivational tool to get in shape. remember they're not forcing people to change what it is they do, they are only giving incentive to do so.
hmm... did they open up even more MC donalds there ?
Besides that, the main thing I always point out in situations like this where people, typically liberals, don't understand is this. Where would the money come from to reward these people? Not only are you giving a financial reward to people, but how would the program be regulated? You'd have to create a department, likely in a hospital setting (which most hospitals are overcrowded as shit as things are) and pay someone to do the measurements, then you have a big governing board who looks over it, and so on and so on.
