Change: It Is a Matter of Choice

Ghandi once said, "Become the change you seek." It tells us that everyone wants change. Every country does. Sometimes we should accept the fact that we need it. We need reforms for the better of our country. It is a BIG step but why not take the risk, right?

But in Japan's case, the word change? WHOA. It is really difficult when you think about it because a lot has to be done, a lot has to be accepted by their people and a lot of time is needed for them to get used to it. But the thing is, I think Japan is in dire need of change because of the instability that is happening in their country. That situation is not new, but rather it is been there a long, long time ago. It just so happens that maybe the financial crisis now or the recession showed us more of the weaknesses that has been around Japan that we haven't notice before. I believe that the major factor that causes this instability is Japan's political leaders. That is why Japan was even compared to a dinosaur. Despite the fact that this country is one of the most powerful country in the entire world, Japan's leaders are weak and are not that efficient when it comes to leading a very powerful country. Japan needs more to that than having leaders that cannot solve their country's instabilities.

Moreover, I believe that Japan cannot have a major transformation or reform if they still have the same political leaders in their government.

Same beliefs, same platforms, same ideas, it is just all the same.

Where can we find the change there? How can Japan achieve the change they need in order to rise from their instabilities if the same leaders are still sitting in those political positions?

If Japan wants change, they should also change the people in the government. Aren't people fed up with the same political party or the LDP? If change or reform will not occur, the instabilities in their country may get worse. I also think that the opposition should prove to the people that they deserve a chance to show that they can also make a change in Japan. They should strive hard and show their people their passion for having a reformation in their country. They need to have a say or make a stand in order for them to get those positions they are running for.

That is why change is also a matter of choice.
