On Monday the "Tokyo Two" received their verdict after an arduous two year trial. Junichi & Toru were sentenced to a one year jail term suspended for three years. Their crime? Uncovering corruption in the whaling industry. The two will appeal their guilty verdict. The international community is divided. What are your thoughts on the matter? Should citizens be allowed to speak out against corruption? Check this link for more of the story: http://www.greenpeace.org/australia/news-and-events/news/whales/tokyo-two-verdict

Having stayed in Japan for a while I find that group cohesiveness (group loyalty) to be a strong normative value that would be placed much higher than concerns about corruption, at least that is my opinion based on my limited experience of the Japanese people all the best urban

I studied the language for four years, but have never been there. Yes, that could be the reason why - valuing group loyalty over opposing corruption for the greater good. It makes it such a difficult problem to tackle that way.

Yes indeed, the only way would be to 'out group think them' all the best urban
