Japan has a high GDP and is a top economy of the world. It is dysfunctional and socially backward because it is still based on outdated tradition (family honour execessively being placed as a high priority in a toxic way and socially backward as they don't tend to think critically and rather go by emotions as in the case of encouraging young people to drink more at the cost of their phyicial health. They also have very bad mental health care system despite all the executive power and ability and MONEY to change it.)
Child Abuse and Neglect has been found to cause and sometimes if not cause, it exasperates, problems in socializing, and being mentally healthy later in adult life. In Japan, we all know the suicide rates are high and young people, tend to not want to interact often and prefer being indoors or even if they do interact, there's just not enough sex going on to replace the Japanese population properly. Well it is no surprise then that -
