1. Maybe the Japanese are more realistic.
Taking to the streets doesn't appear to be in the Japanese playbook. They understand that no one is responsible for a tsunami. They were the most tsunami prepared nation on earth. Now they understand the mistakes made in nuclear power plant design. Hindsight.

I think the disgruntled in Spain and Greece have a legitimate beef with the banks and the government. We hear the American "right" tell us that socialism caused the debt in Greece and Spain. We hear it every day. They hold these nations up as an example of why we don't want to enact single payer health care in the U.S. Well, this is nothing more than a convenient load of bullshit. A world financial catastrophe wasn't caused by social programs. Fortunately many of us can see through their dishonesty.
