Now Michael Moore's movie 'Sicko' is released in Japan. this writer watchedaw the movie in a moviehouse downtown Tokyo on Saturday, a staff told me that the house was filled for a whole day and evening.
While enjoying the movie, this writer deeply sympathize with the Ameican citizens who are suffering under the yoke of tyrannical medical insurance system.
It is clear that the American diplomats and negotiators who demanded the privitization of the postal life insurance system and introduction of non-insured advanced technology treatment and privitized hospital system by the stock owned corporations in Japan does not respresnt the American national intersts but the spoke only for the interestes of the private life insurance companies.
Dear American friends, if any, amongst the readers of this humble blog, I have to confess that I was overwhelmed by the high standards of medical care system in Europe, even though Japanese system is also system for everybody, I mean, universal medical care system and disappointed by the system, to me, it was just like the system in the totalitarian society.
For the past fifty years, Japan reached modestly high standard life style comaparable to Europeans, for instance, two day off in a week, medical care for all, but American business interests are going to destroy the success story. American people should be informed that the negotiators are acting not for the national interests but for the interests of vested business corporations.
The movie clearly showed that the medical care situation is the 37th in the World Health Organizations ranking. This writer sincerely wish that the situation should be rectified, and the Japan US tade negotiations in the recent decade, that market fundamentalists oriented negotiations should also be suspended immediatly. Those governmental negotiations are weakening the bilateral relations and does not contribute to the security in the Pacific, even if it will definitely contribute to the interests of the small number of business corporations.
