This doesn’t surprise me at all. Since this country removed the Bible from our schools over 70 years ago, we are now living in a post Judeo/Christian Barbaric Nation. The Media puts down our men showing them to be stupid or womanizing; Women are portrayed as emasculating gossiping whores, we tell our children to do what ever they want without disciplining them. And why should we care since we hate children.(57,000,000 abortions since roe v wade) A society that isn’t accountable to the true Living God(not the mediocre, tolerant God that the majority have invented in their pathetic finite minds), doesn’t care about anyone but themselves; why should they care about the elderly? If you are just a cosmic accident then eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you die!!
Have a nice day!!!
Within five years, Japan had signed similar treaties with other western countries. The Harris Treaty was signed with the United States on July 29, 1858. These " Ansei Treaties " were widely regarded by Japanese intellectuals as unequal, having been forced on Japan through gunboat diplomacy , and as a sign of the West's desire to incorporate Japan into the imperialism that had been taking hold of the continent. Among other measures, they gave the Western nations unequivocal control of tariffs on imports and the right of extraterritoriality to all their visiting nationals. They would remain a sticking point in Japan's relations with the West up to the turn of the 20th century.
