Oh yeah people just go on about their business and ignore what is going on around them. If it doesn't directly intrude into their bubble, they really don't pay any attention! We seem to have already forgotten all about the oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico and the damage done.Sagittarii wrote:There's a lot of people in this world who could care less about the tsunami and go on with their daily lives and never thought twice about it. But those people will be the first ones fighting in the streets and bitching and criticizing others when something happens to THEM because of the rampant sense of entitlement that permeates American society. Look at the Japanese in this situation, no looting, no crimes reported, people are patient with each other and help each other. Just take a look at Katrina and you see how Americans act during a tragedy.
Thanks for this link. What an eye opener.spacerelatives wrote:Three Mile Island...
...What the Thompsons say they found out during their time inside TMI suggests radiation releases from the plant were hundreds if not thousands of times higher than the government and industry have acknowledged -- high enough to cause the acute health effects documented in people living near the plant but that have been dismissed by the industry and the government as impossible given official radiation dose estimates.
You very well could be right Theory, we all know we can't believe everything we see and hear.Theory wrote:Not necessarily, if the Japanese officials told them not to film certain things I do not think they would cross them. I think the last thing anyone wants to do is piss them off. If the reporters were here in the U.S or a underdeveloped country then heck yeah they would be all over it. There are some or maybe most are keeping themselves under control, they do have more discipline then we do, but maybe they are still in shock and have yet to feel all the emotions especially since the crisis is not over with yet. When my aunt died I was frozen inside, I didn't cry or anything even at the funeral, but three days later all the emotions came crushing down on me, it was not a good time at all. I mentioned that to show, that just because someone looks cool and collective one minute doesn't mean they are the next minute. I guess it really doesn't matter right now. I just hope the ones who lost everything including their families have someone they can turn to.
