    In the US, anyone who is diagnosed with ESRD (kidney failure) is fully covered under Medicare (this was passed in the 1970s under Nixon). So 98% of all the dialysis is done by a few companies, DaVita...

    Hi Qan!
    I think that comparing US society to Japan society requires a bit more context.

    In Japan, the priority is
    1.Country
    2.Company
    3.Family

    In US, the priority is
    1.Family

    Hi Qan,
    My opinion is that racism is not genetic, nor is sexism, nor is any other ‘ism’. Why? Because the underlying issue at hand is that ‘isms’ are simply sweeping generalizations. And making...
