Most Asian societies place great value on the good of the whole rather than the good of the individual. That creates countries full of people willing to do selfless things. :)

@heresjonny, lets wait till you get cancer, and make you clean up nuclear radiation, then hope that the cancer goes away, only for it to come back in 2 or 3 decades, and kill you.

let me get this straight, we want a group of people who can`t program a vcr to fix a nuclear facility?

Actually some of the volunteers are electrical and nuclear engineers throughout the country.

That`s not the ultimate sacrifice. It`s truth and logic applied to minimize sacrifices.

They`re not making the ultimate sacrifice if they`re gonna die before it has any effect. It`s logical for them to do it but not heroic!

When retirement is a sentence to sitting on the couch waiting your turn to die, volunteering to do something worthwhile is a welcome change.

The Inuits toss there old peeps on icebergs, and push the iceberg out to sea. That`s what I heard. Here in the states we just lock them up in homes and forget about them,whilst they get physically,emotionally, and mentally abused. I hope I don`t get old.

The Japanese do have a stronger sense of the oneness of the people than a lot of other countries. Especially the older generation. My understanding was that the were yet to find many suitable ways in which to enlist the assistance of the Skilled Veterans Corps just yet.

It is a nice sentiment but it`s not like they are going to knowingly allow him to receive fatal doses of radiation. It can be dangerous work but it`s not like taking this job is a death sentence.

coincidentally, i just read a book about Ant colonies, in which the eldest ants volunteer to guard the colony for this same reason. Not that japanese are like ants, but the connection entered my brain so... there... do what you will with it.

"Simple. The Japanese design our electronics, and the Chinese build them. Without the Japanese, our level of technology would be very, very different."

We let them copy our electronics and equipment production postwar, we shot ourselves in the foot.

Apparently everyone is taking this as a good time to attack Japan`s culture. I honestly believe Japan is no better than America, we`re both guilty of some serious atrocities against humanity, but Japan has a better history of being strong in the face of adversity. In that they are superior at least.

In Japan you`re expected to sacrifice yourself for the good of others. It`s "one for all" not "all for one." It could be good or bad. Still, in this case it`s extremely admirable. I wonder if as a result of this crisis Japan will have a lower life expectancy?
Japan is at least admirable for being able to survive some seriously crises in it`s time.

I remember reading this. Really must commend the Japanese for everything they did and are still doing at fudgeushima, and all over the country really.

This man isn`t from a greater generation. He is from a different culture. That is how they think in Japan.

I had a professor in college who auctioned off dollar bills to make a point (I don`t remember what it was). These broke college students were bidding $20 for a $1. He said CEOs he had done this with had bid over $1,000. Then he went to Japan, and without talking to each other, the bids were $1, pass, pass, pass. $1, pass, pass, pass. The people there thought more like a team than we do over here. It`s a cultural difference. One, at least in the case of these folks, to be admired.

I keep trying to say that old person death-match fights should be legalized. The same logic totally applies.

"without a doubt this gentlemen is from a greater generation."

No doubt this mans father was a kamikaze pilot, one of many who killed thousands. Same mentality.

Could someone explain to me why westerners, especially Americans, like to kiss Japans ass so much? Feeling guilty perhaps?

Yeah, Japan is so much better than America. We don`t have Police/Fire/EMS Personnel that go to work, everyday, leaving their Husband/ Wife/ Child/ Mom/ Grandma/ Dad/ Grandpa behind to go put their a$s on the line for YOU. I agree, this "Suicide Corps" is an awesome group of people, you know when you go to work you are stepping into something that will kill you, but too often people on here talk crap about America and love Japan and China and every other Country. Two questions: 1. What about all of the bad that happens in those countries? The abuse of children over school and studies? What about the high suicide rates? 2. If it is so bad here and so great there WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?? -That is all
