Dishonor Revealed

All of Japan has been exposed to a recent Nihon University football play, where Taisuke Miyagawa delivered the opposition quarterback a late hit designed to injure (宮川泰介選手と日大アメフト部の悪習). The offending player now openly claims his coaching staff ordered the dangerous tackle, to force the opposing star out of the game.

Japan is widely discussing dishonor.
The New York Times analyzes the impact:
"The play — and what led to it — has touched off nationwide examination of deep-rooted cultural dynamics, including what the Japanese call "パワハラ  power hara," or harassment by those in power who force underlings to do things against their will." (link)

But surely rot and パワハラ "power hara" reach to the very top.

In Japan's political world, the powerful evade responsibility - as 'soldiers' coverup corruption.  And in the USA, payoffs & powerful lawyers hide leadership misdeeds. Sad!
