Japan’s egalitarian society hits the skids


The NYT seems to think so, anyway. I’d question their basic premise…Japan is a pretty stratified society, where you suck it up and do what you gotta do, though the politeness factor means there’s not a lot of “screw you, I’m rich and you’re not” like you get in the States. Maybe that’s more that the article is aiming for, though I’m not sure it gets the point across. Resident Japan expert Cam can probably give a much better assessment than myself.
