It would make sense to me that for a place like Japan to sustain itself successfully, it would have to have some help from other areas with more resources. Again with the concept- people don't choose to be born, or where they are born... To be born in Japan is as unchosen by that person as it would be in any other country. I don't think people should have to pay for resources that they do not have available, especially because they are on an island/island chain that simply doesn't have what they need. I am really repulsed by the bartering system because of absolute indication of beyond excessive surplus and profit and greed and all that garbage that humanity reeks of. Yeah some people are happy, but we could be completely unburdened of all negativity if we banded together to rid the world of negativity itself. I know that Japan would be happy to receive everything that they need for no cost, but I also know that many people would be willing to work, and more willing to work, if they didn't have expenses to pay for... it would really be serving their life's purpose as a component of humankind if they worked to help others, rather than to pay their monthly rent. I don't have a clue how I would go about organizing a movement to transform this idea into a reality, but I'll work on that. In the mean time, I would advise supranationalism for Japan, and hope that with the alliance of other countries, they can band together and make deals that work for the greater good of their country, population, and the world.
