Japanese Mayor, Disgusted With The Government's Crisis Response, Appeals For Help To The Entire World

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The mayor of Minami Soma city, located 25 km away from the Fukushima plant, had decided to bypass the traditional channels in requesting assistance out of disgust and frustration with the government's handling of the disaster, and instead is appealing to the entire world via this soon to be viral video clip which was recorded over a week ago but is only now making the rounds. In the clip, mayor Katsunobu Sakurai says: "We are left to ourselves... we risk dying of hunger." Minami Soma, once a city of over 70,000 and which may now be down to as little 20,000, is asking for volunteers to do what the Japanese government refuses to do: namely to help those most in need of if not help, then at least potentially life-saving information. The mayor expresses his disappointment at the lack of support from the central government for the city’s remaining residents, and accuses the government of not providing sufficient information to help in the decision making process. Making things worse is that the remaining citizens, many of whom who are trying to evacuate, are unable to do so as there is no gas or means for transportation. Unfortunately, by the time the Japanese crisis is done, cities like Minami Soma, far beyond the 20 km evacuation zone, will be nothing more than ghost towns. And while we have already seen a few minor attempts at popular backlash against TEPCO and the government, the general population may soon be reaching a tipping point of discontent. Will Fukushima be the straw that breaks the traditionally peaceful Japanese population's back into an expression of violent disagreement with the government's handling of the consequences of the March 11 earthquake, which for now can only be classified as deplorable?

I would not be surprised if it turns out that most of the government has done what most of the government everywhere always does.

That is, take care of their own sorry butts indifferent of everyone else.

There are always exceptions, but just wait till SHTF plays out here.

In trying to figure things out about all one could say that could have any merit would be that the govt didn't want to stir panic such that the economy would collapse.  Not saying that this is their intent (obviously they don't want to see their means of power/control killed), but just wondering just what would happen if it were announced that "we're fucked."  Markets don't care about what happens, just in gathering more capital; and clearly, Japan's capital is eroding fast.

People need to think about this the next time they are about to go off calling any group of low-tech peoples "backward."  I'm thinking that "backward" and alive beats "forward" and dead.

Like I said before. Whenever something like this happens, you need to get the hell out as fast as possible.

I would have left from day 1.

Then it was still easy. Now it's like a big prison camp. Nobody wants those people because they are radiated, and yes... they will die. They will die a painfull death.

Whenever they say "DON'T PANIC" = That is the time you PANIC and get the hell out of Dodge!

'I would have left from day 1.  Then it was still easy.'

True.  Same thing with Katrina.  You be the first to load you backpack with supplies, store extra shells for your rifle and get the H-- out of Dodge.  Alternative is being stuck in a stadium in New Orleans or inside the walls of your home in Minami Soma dying a slow death. 

So far as no one wanting the remaining villagers because of their radiation levels...excuse my naivete- but once a 'contaminated' person's clothes are off and the person is washed- they are no threat to anyone- am I right?  I have allot to learn about all of this and it may be time to begin educating myself since this disaster is only expanding.

It depends on how much radiation the person has absorbed. If the level is above the safe limites, then that radiation can be "transmitted" (for lack of a better word) to the surroundings. It would be like taking something slightly less radioactive, and that something is still causing the surroundings to be iradiated. When it gets to that point, the person doen't have much times regardless of how much you would like to help.

No, what he needs is for technology and systems already invented to deal with such messes to be released to the public.   Problem with that is that said technology and systems are actually free energy systems so helping this area of the world would affect greed Oil/Electricity/Water barons.   Yes, very sick but what would one expect considering all the "truth" floating everywhere.   Release the technology - problem solved but also massive overhauld of systems as they currently exist.   Oh no....can't have that can we?   The "money paradigm" would also have to die to help these people.   But no matter what, the paradigm will die.  The hold back in releasing this technology is murder but drug companies and other corporations have been doing it forever - consciously/unconsciously - at this point - who cares.   Very sad situation.    Nuclear has never been the "way" ever.   It is like the treatment of bleeding people out in the skull that humans thought would work - and it did not and it killed people who had the treatment.

I have seen them but some of us are scientists/physicists and don't play in "markets". Too fake. But, keep believing your misguided information. Japan did not believe in Fat Man or Little Boy either. Inventions are a very cool thing. The Universe is not finite. Energy can neither be created or destroyed. Only harnessed and re-directed. And there are many, many ways to do this but one would have to understand a whole lot of physics (which you clearly do not) but it will come out eventually. But, you would have been a flat Earth person in another life. We scientists have jokes about that.

Your name is quite revealing. First Order of biz for you: The water wheel. It powers many homes right now but one needs to have the brook/water source. The systems depend on local (climate; natural resources; etc.) But the water wheel (been used forever) actually does work. And once it is built the water and the wheel do all the work but a water wheel in such form cannot go to market. Why? There is no "market" for such a thing. Simplicity and physics working together such a very cool thing.

Now, please go back to Kappa Sigma at USC where your brethren reside. Or Charlie Sheen's house. And all of you will be the first to die if things get real. It is just reality. Money and assholiness don't fly in the face of reality. Clearly not a physician either. Probably one of those who sailed through college taking the easy classes on parent money but is truly quite useless in a societal sense.

No one knows it all. Not even you. But then again you probably could not even pass a basic physics class or do the mathematical algorithms to achieve such a minor feat.

Stupid is as stupid does. But that is your life. Live it as you please. Please. You are one of those people who makes nothing but "noise" and that is your choice but noise is just that. Noise.

Free energy algorithms and solutions are not widely available on the Google thingy. Not everything is on Google. We shall learn that soon also. Most of what is on Google has turned into trash. And not actual information. Must be discerning with information. Seek and ye shall find but always be seeking - there is no end to the road. Ever. Only twists turns. That is how the Universe works. No end. No beginning. One big clusterfuck of systems of which we don't really even get at this point. But it is amazing to see the microcosm of the macrocosm when you watch how cells react to so many things automatically. Truly fascinating.

Nothing the Elites would like more, than a simple, clean, cheap energy source. Because, why should they care if they lose all ability to control everybody else by controlling energy ? Here they are, saying how much they'd love free energy:

"Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it." - Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

"The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet." - Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation

"Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun." - Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University

And more on how much they respect truth and human dignity:

"Unless we announce disasters no one will listen." - Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC

"It doesn't matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true." - Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

"We've got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy." - Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony... climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world." - Christine Stewart, fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment

"The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe." - emeritus professor Daniel Botkin

"We require a central organizing principle - one agreed to voluntarily. Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations, rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change - these are all forms of appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation of society will not be necessary." - Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

"Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsiblity to bring that about?" - Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme

"A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation." - Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are." - Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

"Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control." - Professor Maurice King

"Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class - involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing - are not sustainable." - Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit

"The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil." – Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

"My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world." -Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

"A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal." - Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor

"... the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million but less than one billion." - Club of Rome, Goals for Mankind

"If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels." - Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, patron of the World Wildlife Fund

"I suspect that eradicating small pox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems." - John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

"The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing." - Christopher Manes, Earth First!

"Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing." - David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

"The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
The above quote is Excerpted from "The First Global Revolution" which is a publication of "The Club of Rome" (made the best seller list in 1991)
http://books.google.com/books?id=8RNKHGbzUuAC&printsec=frontcover

"The world today has 6.8 billion people... that's headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent."
-- Bill Gates (in public speech with published video)

 

There's no market for (relatively) 'free energy' technology, because anyone who comes up with anything workable gets assasinated.

Natural and Universal laws always reign supreme over anything else created by a lowly human species. The time for Homo Sapiens of which most of us actually are is over. It occurs. It has been happening for centuries - hence why no more Cro Magnon man and the recent discovery of tools definitely not dino mad. There have been many versions of us. We are upgrading - literally and physically right now. Some won't be able to make the quantum leap (that is ok - we are all energy anyway) but some will. Homo Pacum - the new game in town. Nothing really on the web about that except some shaman from Belize and is also from New Orleans. But the phrase and description Homo Pacum is in white papers and has been passed around. Not really on Google though. Not ready for prime time.

Oh and we physicist/mathematicians had an argument with the biologists a lot this past century. We thought machines would evolve and be created faster than nature eventually based on how nature was moving/evolving (in our limited knowledeosphere). We just realized in the past 5 years we were very wrong. Nature trumped us like a bitch and it is fascinating. I only do research now on the nature part. Bad ass. The biologists are sad because of the state of affairs but also laughing at us. We are good sports. We folded. But technology used in concert with nature in balance. It is the only way forward and to learn more. I am not even nice.

I am not a physicist is there not a group of people saying that the earth and the universe are actually flat? From the quantum physics side?

Our earth and our reality is a three dimensional physical experience in that context the earth is not flat. However do you have any insight into how the universe could be considered flat at the quantum physics or some theoretical model level? To me this is a big mind bender, but I love it :-)

From waterwheel to Fukushima to waterwheel. Fucking physicists have cornered the market in assholiness. At least you seem to have. Arrogant turds.

Your worldly wisdom? We need water wheels in every house! Hydro, now there's the answer. Turbines in every cistern.

Your caveat: "Oh, by the way, you'll need a water course". What a joke. Fuck, but you're so smart though, I'm sure you'll come up with an open source invention.

Now, my current knowledge in over-unity energy systems may be lacking, true, but if so, why hasn't the physics society been marching outside beating the drum. Speak up you fucktard.

Enlighten everyone instead of denigrating the unwashed. Morons don't just exist in the lower echelons of academia.

I am not in academia. What an assumption you fucktard. :) Why would I be in academia. Nothing happens there.

I am as they say "living it large" and in the field. Now, you need to go learn how to read and how to be real. And truthful. And your ego needs a wash. Put it back in the brain box bitch. It is not helping You.

Isn't this synonymous with hydro power?  Isn't a modern hydro system much more efficient at creating energy from the movement of water than an older style water wheel?

My water source is a community system that serves approximately 250 other homes.  I'm on a 1/2 acre of land, and am about 2 miles from a river that is glacier fed and flows into Cook Inlet.  The river freezes up fairly well during the winter months.

As for wattage needs, let's say I wanted 3000 watts available.

While you are batshit insane, I do find you to be entertaining. Could you do something besides citing a several thousand year old technology as an example of "free energy"? Yeah, the potential energy of water is fantastic, but this is not really free, nor generally available to the vast majority of the planet. You need either a large distance head, or very large water flow, to harness enough electricity for personal use.

You make strange allusions to being associated with the very broad category of physicist/mathmetician with a mention of fractals. Whoopideedoo. It sounds like you are just dropping buzzwords everywhere with little knowledge. Even if you are a "scientist" (which would be very surprising), you are either schizophrenic or went to the worst university possible.

A sane, educated person can put together coherent thoughts and sentences. Neither of which are found in your inane, baseless ramblings.

So please, cite some examples of this magic supressed tech that you have seen, yet so casually decline to mention. There is plenty of good research going on out there in the world of energy production, but no one is supressing it. They would instead harness it, protect it, and profit greatly from it. There is a "market" for everything.

Anything alreadly known does not count for your magic hidden tech. This includes, but is not limited to: Wave machines, water turbines, solar electricity, solar heating with sterling engines (be it farmed or personal), wind turbines, various geothermal energy tech, fuel cells, etc...

Drop a knowledge bomb on us all. I would love to hear what unbelievable magic that you have been privvy to.

While it makes "us", who are at least somewhat removed from the immediate and immanent  dangers in Japan feel better to give money, I fear it will do those in Japan no benefit what so ever.  There have been some very, very tough decisions made and it apprears those who are capable of making "anything" happen have made the choice to leave everyone where they are come what may.

The alternative may have been considered along these lines:

They need a) a different place to go and b) the logistics to make it happen.  The "different" place to go could and perhaps should be isolated for the non radiated people's protection - but they need out of that entire area badly.  Those who are radiated need to be kept as comfortable as possible as they pass on and as cruel as it seems and sounds, those who are reproductive ages who will not die from exposure need to be sterilized.

It is doubtful these ideas would have passed the litmus test of their culture, or the world's - so in Japan they will stay it appears.

One Day 3 or thereabouts, the Japanese government decreed that no person or news media could release information to the world without an OK from them.  If they deny permission, no news/facts get distributed. I remember reading about the decree at the time.

Bottom line, lots is maybe getting covered.  But no one is receiving permission to announce what has been discovered.

@Cogntive Dissonance:

 

I don't know how many might have stuck out the video long enough to notice the printed message that shows up about 10:40.  It certainly supports your (and my) amazement.

 

Written in Japanese and English:

 

On March 25th, the Japanese Government announced that they would provide support to those who wished to evacuate.  However they are reluctant to give any specific "evactuation orders" to the citizens of Minami-soma.  Therefore, the citizens of Minami-soma are forced to make crucial decisions without sufficient information.  The government should take immediate action by giving clear orders to save the lives of the people in Minami-soma, and stop tossing them about.

In normal times a statement like that coming from any official of anything, anywhere in Japan, would be as unseemly as starting a drunken brawl at a wedding.  Truly amazing.

Heartbreaking to see people getting sold out and potentially sacrificed to keep banks and the markets happy.  The inaction on the part of the rest of the world's leaders leads me to think this is what would happen anywhere nowadays.  TPTB are in so deep with their printed money and indebted ponzi scheme that all the western countries are scrambling to help prop each other's leaders, banks, markets and central banks up, because if one falls they all fall.  Ordinary citizens be dammed, it just happens to be occurring in Japan.  

The western world is desperate for a leader who will step up and thumb his or her nose to the banks and do what is right and just.  We need a leader who can step up and deliver the truth no matter how much it might suck, we can rebuild we always do.  Where is the faith in humanity and mankind?

That is a popular but entirely erroneous modern urban myth regarding those two presidents, most likely originating in the disingenuous, pro-fiat propaganda of Bill Still and Ellen Brown.  Lincoln was responsible for the first federal fiat currency, and Kennedy in no way "took on the bankers" --- in particular, it is complete misinformation that he did so via the issuing of silver certificates, which were already an integral part of US currency at the time, and had been for the previous century.

"We need a leader who can step up and deliver the truth no matter how much it might suck, we can rebuild we always do."

Why the hell do you NEED a leader?  Don't YOU know the way?

What part of power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely didn't you get?

If not for the fact that it's mangled and turned into control by select few, religions tend to have it fairly right when they proclaim that the real powers that should be worshiped are not here on earth.  I believe this, though I also don't believe that there's anything above my head that I should be expecting is orchastrating our lives either.

As far as always being able to rebuild... who are you talking about?  Plenty of civilizations have collapsed.  I for one don't think that it's a good idea to replicate what we have (since it's all predicated on a failing paradigm).

Not wanting to sound harsh, but Japan has to deal with themselves.  Helping pave over their errors only allows people to believe that they can be reckless and be bailed out, kind of like US banks... the better thinking was demonstrated above, and that's to accept children over as exchange students (though I'm not really high on US education, the guesture/mechanism is more meaningful than allowing children to suffer for the sins of their elders).

Seer, I don't need a leader myself but a majority of people follow and right now there are a lot of people sitting around assuming they're safe whether in Japan from radiation or here from economic collapse.  Our present system gives a very powerful microphone and podium to a few select people, and those people are not using it to speak the truth and by lying they are putting people's lives at risk.  

The reason they're lying is to keep the current system going (banking, markets, big corporations, big governments, big government agencies) and it would seem to me that both of us agree that the present system is simply being propped up-it isn't really sustainable anymore than printing money is. By rebuilding I mean if our current system collapsed humanity wouldn't stay down forever it would rebuild.  In other words human life is not contingent on the S&P gaining 10 pts on Monday or USD/JPY staying below 85, but right now that is the focus.  So we have completely lost the plot.

Keep in mind I wrote my original post after watching the video, it was motivated by emotion rather than logic, seeing evidence of people just languishing asking for basics knowing all the while that humanity is capable of spending billions on keeping USD/JPY at just the right quote, and spend trillions to bail out banks is both maddening and heartbreaking.

I dunno, perhaps increases in costs of goods and wages might compel people to increase taxes?  And, last I checked, taxes have been accepted as the social norm (for the various "services").

The problem isn't so much govt as it is our own messed up expectations/beliefs, which are firmly entrenched with the irrational notion that we can have unlimited growth on a finite planet.  Go ahead, walk out onto the streets and let people know this and see what happens.  Then ask yourself if you think you could do this with exposure to millions of people.  And the big corporations that don't want their spigots turned off?

No, not all folks in govt are evil, just as not all of the population is evil.  That stated, I have no interest in ANYONE representing me (in which case any attempts to classify me as some socialist govt lover will be met with huge belly laughs).

People trapped without basic necessities while the powers that be play a massive game of limit liability and CYA. How typical.

Assholes.
