68%: “AKB Election More Important Than General Election”

akb48-general-election-1

Japanese are supposedly now more interested in the AKB general election than their own parliamentary general election, with 68% more concerned over which idol finds herself “elected” to than which bunch of incompetents will be running the country next.

According to their survey, only 32% of those questioned found the business of re-electing the LDP more interesting the AKB general election, which was found to be more interesting by 68%.

akb48-general-election-2

akb48-general-election-3

A certain amount of scepticism attaches to the findings online, in no small part thanks to the slavish adulation the Japanese mass media lavishes on AKB48:

“Get out of here…”

“No way.”

“What, they asked 10 people in Akihabara or something?”

“It was held outside a concert stadium perhaps?”

“Obviously only these kinds of people would install the app they used to conduct the survey.”

“Anyone interested in AKB48 is much more likely to vote in this kind of stuff.”

“If 70% of the people have no interest in the election, I’d say that’s the real issue here. The show should have followed up on that, not the AKB angle.”

“Well, either election is just an elaborate farce anyway…”

“Behold, world, this is Japan.”

    who's surprised? I'm willing to wager most popular TV popularity elections are more important to people on a personal level than national elections, because unless you have a very specific set of circumstances who you vote for in a national election doesn't matter nothing much will change regardless of who wins.

    I'm sure pop idol (x factor, american idol, etc) rank far higher in peoples day to day lives then whether you get a right of center or a very right of center government. Not just pop idol shows but any show where you can vote for the result (and also quite importantly you can have a greater influence if you have a greater desire/capacity.)

    Democratic national elections are a farce for the most part, you get one group of lying dickheads who you have no idea about who are looking to steal all your money, or another group of lying dickheads who are looking to steal all your money.

    “Behold, world, this is Japan.”

    This should be rephrased "Behold, world, this is REALITY."

    Most people in general don't care about politics and hold their own hedonistic desires above everything else. But when things get bad to the point they can't afford to indulge in their hobbies, you know who they will come to crying to for help. Which is sad because it could have been prevented if they were more involved.

    It's not about being interested in old men (who paved the way for Japan to be the country you love), but in the governing and direction of their nation. If they are all senile old men (who are more educated and capable than you and most women, I don't see you trying to manage a country) then isn't that more reason to be interested and replace them?

    He could have spent that money on a political education and made Japan a better place, your words tell him its ok to not be interested.

    I don't know what hole you crawled out of, but in the better enlightened parts of the world, we have women politicians, and they do about as fine as their male counterparts. Which is to say, they are all really terrible at it, but hey, it's not as if the ability of actually doing their job was ever important qualification for a politician.

    You're expecting people to believe all of that is off the top of your head just because you threw in "The former PM of Sri Lanka in the 1970s whose name i can't remember without looking up."

    If you were smart you would have stopped at 3 names even if you DID happen to be a womans studies professor which you're not, (and even if you were would disqualify you from replying as my question was posed to the average person who couldn't come up with that list as many of those names are not household names which was my point you missed entirely) because going on and on like that makes your story impossible to believe and you would have known that obvious truth if you were really that smart. you easily fell into the trap. You would have mentioned you're a professor or stopped at 3 of the most well known people, but you're telling me you remember all of those names, first and last, and even perfect all of the spelling and their title AND their countries PERFECTLY AND even a backstory Lol. Right. Nice try though on the 'sri lanka person who i just can't seem to remember' nice attempt at realism.

    Also I thought I made it clear to include some of their views that you agree with that's constructive to society. I guess that was too much work to google. Even if you could name names, what good is it if you don't know their positions and views on matters and whether or not you agree with them. What good is simple knowing what job they have. Did you really mention Hillary Clintons accomplishment as "being cheated on by her husband"? And you expect me to believe your story.

    People have ranted names at me before but they never seem to make mention of the fact these women are a miniscule minority or prominent women that have existed throughout history. And simply having a title as senator or president doesn't even mean that you've made prominent change. Often I can pluck out listed names and give back stories on how it favored men in the political atmosphere to allow these women to take high positions and how they were just figureheads while men did all the work through them. But you wouldn't believe me.

    The fact remains these women throughout history have made up what 4? 5%? of quality women? 2? 3%? or breakthroughs and major advancements in history? Some of those women on your very proud list didn't any do anything significant. They're not special just for taking the job unless you already know most women are useless pieces of crap, THEN its impressive to name some of the names you did who didn't really do anything except take the job. Do you know the number on how many women have been whores and prostitutes? I'll tell you at any random point in history including today where the excuse of female oppression is hardly valid, the prostitutes and sex workers far outnumber the female senators or just female doing anything productive at all. "But women are the ones who have children and thats a major contribution to society!" Ok 1. Having a child doesn't mean you are then useless and cannot or do no need to accomplish anything and contribute to life though to women it does seem to mean that. and 2 thank you women for contributing babies in this hugely over populated world. What would we do without your sacrifice. Thanks for the overcrowded classrooms, and poverty, and hunger, and sex slaves, and Chinese sweat shops. Thanks women. Thanks.

    I really REALLY could go on and on here, but I think you are outmatched and I don't like to bully people. But I have at least 5 other very strong points to make so if you insist I will go on and show you why your point is as foolish as assuming I care about being called a misogynist when either you don't know the definition to that word or are not smart enough to realize there's no logical way you could apply it to me.

    I don't know much about women politicians, but I lump them in my view that many of these politicians don't have any expertise and just get their marching orders from corps, lobbyists, and such until they retire - there is no leadership in government, just tools.

    No, Taylor, I was referring to the fact that most of Japan's elections are between old men who hate change of any kind, and people are generally apathetic towards that. I didnt say they shouldnt have an interest, I just said that to the average person, entertainment is more interesting than politics no matter how banal and shitty the entertainment is. I disagree and find many politics interesting, especially more than garbage like AKB, but I am not 'the average person'.

    This is why I think places like Japan and the US, where voting not compulsory, has this kind of problem. In my country, voting is compulsory over the age of 18 so people are forced to care about it because there is a fine for not voting. When people dont 'have' to care about something they generally dont bother.

    However, in countries like the US, you have two very clearly opposing parties. For example, the outcome of laws and regulations would be very, very different if Romney got in instead of Obama. People cant help be interested in a fight between such opposing forces, but in Japan, there isnt all that difference between them.

    I've said it before, but I'm a teacher of Japanese adults and for warm up exercises they often talk about current events. During the election period last year, only about half of the students said they voted, the other half said they didnt even know the difference between the parties and didnt really care. This wasnt just young people by the way, it was both young and old, men and women. When questioned, they remarked that it didnt concern them (which, while a typical japanese response, really does hold some weight when you consider that for many parties nothing really changes.)
    The damn article itself even mentions 'incompetents ruining the country' on either side.

    Shuubi, where did I say ALL WOMEN?
    You even added quotation marks on 'all women' what the fuck are you reading?
    Usually I just say women, which by itself in grown up conversations suggests it as a generalization, generalizations do not include all people, I never say all women and Ive repeated that multiple times, BUT I EVER WENT OUT OF MY WAY IN MY LAST POST AND SAID 'MOST' WOMEN SPECIFICALLY TO AVOID CONFUSING SIMPLETONS. MOST MOST MOST MOST MOST. IT SAYS MOOOOOOOOOOOOSTTTTTT.
    STILL YOU QUOTE ME SAYING ALL!! Are You Retarded?!
    Fuck it, after listening to you I'm convinced that it probably is all women who are complete morons losing what little faith I had in the few.
    This tells me in addition to not being able to listen you evidently can't read either and your illiterate feminists demons are putting things in your head that are not even there. I can't take any of what you say seriously when you screw up even the most simple and obvious of facts that I shouldn't have to give numbers AGAIN for you to know and screw up reading simple words and see things that are not even there. I'm done with you and your ass kissing because you say ur a girl fan club. D.O.N.E. DONE. It doesn't make any sense for me to continue to address any of your concerns or TRY to be rational and logical because there is a mental block making you incapable of understanding even the most simplistic of things. Just so you know when you reply to my posts from now on I will no longer speak to you as an equal but I will talk to you as though you are a child. You brought this on yourself.

    I like how Shuubi can make a post clarifying what she meant in a calm and reasonable matter in response to Taylor's dumbassery, and then Taylor ignores it and goes for the one where she made a mistake. And then starts ranting on like some kid on xbox live, because you somehow even manage to be a sore winner when you're not being a sore loser.

    Speaking of xbox life, this begs the question, how does Taylor feel about black people? In his amazing logic, everything good in the world was created by white men, while black men have contributed not nearly as much, so are 3D black men 'useless' to you too? Honest question here. We can ignore the fact that they have been a minority group for centuries - and still are -, and until recent decades were actively prevented from doing anything they want which kind of hinders any progress one could make in 'developing things', since you do the same when assessing women.

    Hm, then I was wrong. That actually does restore my faith in humanity a little. I can concede I made a statement in error, so will graciously retract it. Since I learned something, I will be grateful and not run my mouth of like a sore loser as some others tend to do, but thanks for the ranting assessment on what 'all women' do.

    My original point still stands, that many people in Japan find it hard to relate to their politicians in the way that people in the US can - nor does anyone hate the opposition to the one they support as much as people in the US do, which drives the desire to make sure their supported one wins. (ie Romney supports that think Obama will ruin the country and vice versa.), so its not surprising if entertainment is more relevant to them. I recognize this is a problem that creates a perpetual cycle. I also recognize that this poll does not represent the japanese population because it looks like it came off some tacky variety show.
    Do you disagree to this?

    "I'm also quite certain that the 'average' person in the US cares a lot more about the Oscars than the elections, too, but that doesnt mean they should."

    Hey Shuubi. 40.3 Million people tuned in to watch the last Oscars. Which is no hassle, no standing in line for hours, no learning about the issues. Just sitting on the couch and watching. In fact the highest Oscar rating to date is 57.3 million.

    One hundred eleven million people voted in the last presidential election, 13 million less than the election before it.

    Which number is higher Shuubi? 40 million or 111 million?

    That's my problem with women and with you, you just rant off your own opinion and what you think is right, don't assume you could be wrong and someone else could be right, talk and don't listen and learn, and make yourself look dumb and uneducated in the end. FACTS SHUUBI FACTS RESEARCH READ LEARN. Plz stop talking out of your ass and assuming you know everything as most women do which is why you can never win an argument with them. Sorry you're "quite certain" is WRONG and so far off from the actual truth that it makes me sad to know people like you exist. But nice try and Im sure you'll be upvoted by your fans anyway because if they all upvote you because they agree with you as you say then that shows how smart they are. Birds of a feather stick together. You should really avoid debating me you are intellectually outmatched.

    Appearance and charm are important for politicians.
    People look at Obama and see his charisma, he's a nice guy, someone who is close to people.
    Then look at people like Ishihara or Germany's Merkel... they are boring, ugly, you don't sympathize with them.
    A country like Japan already has the problem of an aging population (overturned pyramid). Young people aren't interested in politics at all, which is understandable. Japanese have a hard time as students, then they either go to college or work in some shitty job. They are unhappy, stressed, depressed... what they want is entertainment, something making life better. So they spend their free time looking for fun, instead of studying up on boring politics and listening to some old men ranting...

    OK... which is more interesting:

    2. attractive (some I guess) young girls, singing and dancing all day... talking about how they LOVE their fans for supporting them. Oh, and they also show in scantily clad clothing, bikinis and stuff... do half-naked photo shoots. Some even do AVs lol

    Now, which sounds more INTERESTING? It's not about what's more worth, has more influence on life and shit.

    Advice to politicians:
    1. use young politicians
    2. puppet gov - some attractive, popular people are "in charge", while the old farts control everything from the shadows lol
    3. Politician summons Idol, Idol uses Charm on Voter, it's very effective, Voter supports Politician... learn from Pokemon lol

    This was the point I tried to make before it got countered by a certain someone trying to twist it into his anti-woman agenda again, even though that had nothing to do with the topic at hand, like some kind of internet tourettes)
    (Well, not the point entirely. I do think younger people who are more in touch with the general public are necessary, but not 'sexy hollywood stars' or anything. They still need to actually be competent.

    The main issue is how in touch they are with their own damn citizens (which is almost hilariously 'out of' for some of these right wing fellows) which makes people lose interest. The reason Obama was so popular was because, to many people, he was relatable. He's popular outside the US too. He's even popular in Japan. Japanese people cant think of any of their politicans in that way, though.

    Shuubi I'm sad you can't judge the quality of your comments because your profile says female in japan who loves 2d which on sankaku will gather you a gang of worshipers (which Im sure you knew would have that effect of attention when filling out your profile, you even mentioned being female twice lol) who will vote up everything you say regardless if it makes any sense or not. Maybe thats why you like replying to me so much because I don't give a shit if ur a girl or not and if anything look down on you for it while the rest of these losers bow to your feet. Its nice having someone like me who doesn't care about the lumps of fat on your chest and will tell it to you straight isn't it. Let's have an experiment, lets both post anon after first sending the message to each other and see which comments pick up more support. I do this sometimes on my own and usually see my comments at the top when Im not posting them as Taylor. I giggle at this all the time. But on the other hand its not like sankaku visitors have much intelligence anyway, most of them are republicans so I don't expect much.

    My profile states my reasons for preferring my comments to be voted down, I like to have to bottom of every post to myself so I can rant all I like without flooding the topic. So every time you feel that release of power grinning, clicking that minus on my comment feeling like you accomplished something important in the world, doing that in hopes it will bother me as I suspected and you confirmed, when I've already asked for it... wouldn't that make you the idiot?
    Also if its only about me, you could still just vote me down and not her up regardless of any random thing she says, or are you hoping shuubi will give you some internet pussy someday? She's probably a dude anyway dont worship her because she her profile says female in Japan who loves 2d. If I wanted everyone to ass kiss me on sankaku my profile would say the same thing hahah. Your dream of finding a cute otaku wife by voting up all her comments will still fail since what you do with your time is chase me around hoping to spite me with the very thing I asked for. Can't impress women by being an idiot. Or are you mad Im getting all shuubis attention? Im probably closer to hittin it than you are haha. irony. Bleh but Ill pass. I hope she falls in love with you people for giving her confidence in her poor comments, she seems like the type to be happy about that kinda thing and fall for such an easy ploy anyway x3 Good luck internet hero fan club.

    Or maybe people just upvote me because they agree...? I have the same stance as you, that 2D is superior to 3D, but unlike you I don't sully and pollute the pure ideal of 2D with ugly hatred for 3D.
    Sure, a while ago, I used to be like you, and could trust no 3D man outside my family. All I ever heard about was 3D men raping, abusing or otherwise using women for their own needs and then crying misandry when called out on it. I was continually seeing male criminals on the news, male murderers killing their children (or other peoples children), and countless more men that do nothing with their lives yet still told me I was worth less than them. Seeing my sisters boyfriend leech off her until he left her for someone else. Seeing my uncle cheat on my aunt because he became bored of her. Seeing websites and guides made by men about 'how to cheat on your girlfriend and not get caught'. A while ago I would have been preaching that 3D men are evil and dangerous. ...And then I grew up! It's amazing what going out of your comfort zone and opening your damn eyes can do.
    I started to travel. I met lots of people from all backgrounds and expanded my mind. Looking back, I'm ashamed of my past self, but I can recognize my growth as a human being capable of judging humans by more than their chromosomes. I was even able to forgive my uncle for how much he hurt my aunt, who I was very close to.

    I don't ask for upvotes, or a 'fan club'. My only wish is that other people don't become as bitter as I once was, and to spread a -pure-love of 2D that isn't tainted by unnecessary hatred.
    If my gender and stance is honestly surprising to anyone to the extent that they doubt it, it just proves that they don't know anything about women or humans in general. I'm not a representative of women, but I don't think anybody is, because humans are all different.

    To answer your ignorant question from before, the current prime minister of Australia is a woman, and she is far more competent than the moronic (male) opposition, a raving conservative who looks down on anyone lower than upper class. That's not to say she doesnt have a lot of her own flaws, because she certainly does, but she's clearly a better person than the other nutjob, and it has nothing to do with gender. (Of course, said opposition leader is so retarded that it isnt a particularly impressive feat to be better than him)

    That could be easily arranged, if you don't insist on minor things like survivable g-forces, oxygen and radiation shielding.

    I'm pretty sure he says it on a daily basis, I know I do.
