    Japan, the birthplace of Hello Kitty, Super Mario, Sushi… and fetishes of a physical nature that seem wholly Japanese. It’s a country renowned for walking to the beat of its own drum, a cultural oddity in some respects, but with a society that goes to great pains in being polite, civilized, clean, and deferent to customs. Walking around almost any city, you won’t find trash on the ground, and you won’t need to fear being harassed or beaten up for the way you look, or for the few dollars in your pocket. Japan is on the whole smart, convenient, and safe. But then it also has some of the most feared and formidable gangsters on the planet. Who are they? What do they do? That’s what we’ll find out, in this episode of the Infographics Show, Most Dangerous Japanese Gangs.

    Can gangs have a positive effect on the society? Is ethical criminal really possible or is it just an excuse? What do you think?

      Only in Places like Japan, Philippines, and Colombia to name a few, those places they gangs are formed due to corruption around them and they help the populous. But not here in America, while the CRIPS, for example, was forged in the same manor CRIPS=> Citizen Resistance In Progress, it abandoned its main purpose and took a different rout

      The Infographics Show I think it’s just another manipulation tactic for example act nice and everybody will be happy and forgiving to there misdeeds. But if you wrong them then the house they had given you will be taken away and those people might end up in a huuuuuge loan it sort of like saying “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” and people can’t really say much about them cause of that.

    I went to Japan a couple months ago and was surprised to learn that people with tattoos weren't allowed into a lot of saunas/bath houses.
    My sister and I had to look for alternative ones and most of the people there had tattoos and were foreigners.
    I asked a local about the tattoo rule and they said tattoos can symbolize the gangs & many places won't allow you in if they see you with them.
    Thankfully, no one can see mine unless I want you to and undress

    The Aryan Nation loves to beatup and kill child molesters. I've even heard of them helping old ladies. But that doesn't make them good or honorable. Thugs just love to boast about their honor and respect, but that doesn't change their terrible nature. A single act of kindness in an ocean of greedy and savagery doesn't make them saints, it just makes them delusional. The Mafia helped the elderly and "took care" of rapists, but they also murdered anyone who crossed them and extorted every poor soul they could. Don't white wash evil. Good people hope Hell exists, just to accommodate people like these.

    Well, there is a saying communist until rich. Once you are well off, you can afford to act charitable and kind. That doesn't necessarily mean that they are benevolent on the get-go. Sure they act gentleman-like at the moment but that would not reflect who they are if they were backed into a corner or if they were not well-off.

    They saw what happened to the mobs in america during 70s/80s and onward and realised that they couldn't get too out of hand in their own country, plus the culture in Japan is a lot more based in respect than the west so it really isn't surprising that their "bad guys" have moral codes and are more of upstanding citizens than our own traditional view of the mafia and gangs.

      ​+Max200012 Let's start with the obvious: high suicide rates. The social pressure to do well in school and the workplace is extremely high. You're shunned by society and bullied by your peers if you don't achieve great things. In fact, the number one cause of death in teens is suicide. It's a major national issue that stems from the Japanese culture of (family) honor and dignity. (ex. : seppuku, kamikaze...)
      Another major social issue is racism. Japanese people tend to see themselves as superior to other races and aren't that welcoming to foreigners. They are especially vile towards black people and their reasoning is coloured by prejudice and preconceived ideas. I've met only a handful of pleasant and genuinely kind Japanese people in my trips to Japan.
      My third (personal) reason is the crowds. There’s nothing more disgusting than being glued to strangers in a train that smells of body odor and old booze. The trains do have a modern design (technology is far more advanced in Japan than in the West) but they smell AWFUL and if you're claustrophobic, you won't last one trip without getting a panic attack. Besides, if you're female, you shouldn't take the train alone because there are A LOT of perverts on there.
      My last argument is the expenses. Japan is the most expensive country in Asia. Though, if you stick to local (street and market) food and drinks (oyaki, tayiaki, sushi, sake..), the price is comparable to that in the West. Beer and accomodations are very pricey.

    The Yakuza is right about politicians and police also being crooked. Politics is the big game. The world is run by criminals. How are people surprised that banks helped leech European national coffers to the tune of hundreds of billions of Euro? The banks are criminal enterprices that were legalized because their potential benefit was considered greater than the damage caused by their criminal behaviour (which was the lending out money they did not actually have aka fractional reserve banking). World governments legalized an outright swindle. Why?! It is a big club and your are either in or you are not. If you dont know if you are in it or not, you are not in it. The rest of us are cattle to be milked down to the last sour klumpy drops. Dont forget to vote, ,dumbfu....i mean people. It sure looks like it makes a change.

    Of course it fucking doesnt. If voting actually did change the status quo you would not be allowed to. Voting is like the people who were arguing about whether to use gold or silver on the taps on the first class decks of the Titanic. The course is set and the number of lifeboats out of their hands. But keep yapping about the gold on the taps you will never drink from.
