“Far smaller” in this context means a country that is far easier to tightly govern.
Absolutely not. Your “racist” slur is deeply offensive. Stop projecting your racism on threads I start. It’s also not meaningless. Anyone aware of Japanese (or Swiss, or Danish, or Canadian, etc., etc.) culture would immediately understand this.
No. Most South American countries are conquered countries – of Spain, Portugal, etc. That history has a huge impact even today. You should study and contrast the histories of Japan and whatever South American countries you are talking about. (They also typically have very tight gun control laws to boot.)
Whoa! It’s YOU that is dragging race into this discussion. Stop doing so. Japan’s populace is homogeneous in many ways – particularly culturally. Stop trying to play the race card. It’s horribly repugnant.
No where near what the US has, even on a per capita basis.
“Gun control” does not work. There’s hard proof it doesn’t work – it’s a Google search away. Your denial/inability to articulate the truth on this matter does not change that fact.
