Re: wtf

Well, not only are the economic conditions of these two countries pretty radically different, but I'm not convinced that Japan is anywhere near as resource-wasteful as the United States. So that's another area where we can't draw a simple equivalence.

Re: wtf

The Japanese are world-famous for having a hyper-consumerist, hyper-capitalist culture. When you land i n tokyo you realize, "My God, they're mad for it." Puts Americans to shame, really.

The Americans are materialistic too, in their own way. No denying the fact.

Oh, please. We're talking about urbanism here. As if things aren't just as hyper-consumerist in NYC, LA, Chicago, etc, etc, etc on down the line. Give up.

Re: wtf

Yes, Japan and the U.S. are very materialistic, hyper-consumerist places. Each in their own ways.

Re: wtf

Hence, not equivalent. Hence, the stupidity of criticizing somebody for not pointing out said non-existent equivalence.

Re: wtf

Yes, both are hyper-consumerist and hyper-materialistic cultures, indeed. The natural resources they use between the two of them equals 2/3rds of the rest of the entire population of the earth itself.

Re: wtf

Well the Japanese are very materialistic, and the Americans, but both in different ways.
