[Sore News] Heizo Takenaka Says “The Youth Have Freedom To Get Poor. They Can Enjoy It”

Information from Mr. Masatoshi Takenaka posted on his blog – December 2, 2012 –

“What a bird-brain!”
Masatoshi Takeshita

English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: Sore News – December 1, 2012 –


Heizo Takenaka 

  There is one thing I want to say to the youth: “You have freedom to get poor.”  “If you want to do nothing, it is all right.  However, you’ll get poor and you can just enjoy it.  There is only one thing you should not do in that case.  Don’t get in the way of hard workers’ success.”

Some time ago he appeared on a show on BS Asahi to talk with Mr. Taichi Sakaiya and Mr. Shuntaro Torigoe.  When they made a comment on the youth, saying “We want the youth to take more risk in life,” some young people complained about it.  At that time he also said “You have freedom to get poor.”

Poverty cannot be enjoyed.

I don’t understand what he says.

Say it when you go completely broke.

We have no freedom to recover even after getting poor.

Don’t get in the way?
If so, don’t hammer the nail sticking up.

This man also seems to make a wild argument with aging at a rapid pace.

20: Shi (Mie Pref.): 2012/12/01 (Sat) 18:42:02.85
Why can’t you create society where we have no difficulty in living without working, in this day of advanced science?
How long should we live in barbarian-level society?

This is cruel.
Does it mean that the poor should die?

These words should be given after recovering economy.
The guy who allowed for disintermediation of temporary workers should keep quiet!

He ignores the fact that it is the elderly who cause problems that drag down.

Who is this?
Someone who believes in any religion?

Religion called capitalism

36: Japanese bobtail (Yamagata Pref.): 2012/12/01 (Sat) 18:49:22.89
This way of thinking is awful.
Gentle-hearted Japanese will disappear someday.
