- Individually controlled vs. controlled by others
- Fair vs. unfair
The unfairness of that perspective, is something I lack words to describe.
- Morally irrelevant vs. morally relevant
- Responsive process vs. unresponsive process
The government has done some.... they've made an exclusion zone. But the farmers that are complaining here are not being listened to. The govt. and TEPCO are not being open and transparent about how decisions are being made.They are not admitting that they have and are making mistakes. TEPCO is not admitting mistakes. It was announced perhaps two weeks ago that no-one is going to be prosecuted for the mistakes made. Despite the fact that warnings were ignored, false information was given, no-one is going to be held accountable. Listening to farmers talking about their dire situation and responding with what may as well be - you are gullible for believing rumours that your food is not safe is not the kind of response that heightens anger, outrage and mistrust.
- Trustworthy sources vs. untrustworthy sources
|Anti Nuclear Protest - more undercover police than protesters|
|Uniformed police waiting for a protest of about 80 anti nuclear protesters|
|If the authorities put as much energy into responding to|
people who live in affected areas as they spend intimidating
anti nuclear protesters... a lot more might be achieved.
