A pingback led to this blog posting the video below. I’ve just watched it once and need more time to digest it and watch it again. Because the blogger Super Crazy Video World and all the commenters on YouTube (at least the ones I glanced at) seem to be taking the residents’ side against the nasty Tokyo bureaucrats, my initial reaction is to side with the bureaucrats. At one point, it seems as if the residents are asking that the government act like the totalitarian Soviets!And the bureaucrat who says “You are free to evacuate”  seems nonplussed that he has to point this out. I’m going out on a limb here but my guess is that people skills are not his forte, eh?

What do you think? (I’ll have more to say after I’ve watched it again.)
