>is it really like slice of life anime where you don't have burden with alot of shit from the big cities especially Expectations that most japanese often had to abide?
Compared to the big cities, country life doesn't go anywhere near as quick and there aren't as many expectations. You won't find too many of your salarymen working in "black" companies (that is, the companies with abusive practices of extreme overtime and workload) out in the country. The funny thing is that, as a foreigner, they will often expect not as much out of you than they would for a native Japanese person, because the latter is expected to work unreasonably hard in the eyes of the Japanese themselves.
>Also is the pay good for jobs there that only very few move into the big cities/Metropolis
It really depends on what you do. In general, jobs in the big city pay more. Without doxxing myself too much, I work at a university/research center as an academic that someone decided to open up in a country town for some reason. Compared to a similar job in the US, the pay, after considering taxes and living costs, is about comparable.
>How Xenophobic are they in the countryside?
It depends. I've found that they are much more accepting of white people than they are of niggers. Generally, they won't mind you if you don't look like you'll cause trouble or seem friendly enough saying a casual "konnichiwa" as you're walking down the road.
>So wouldn't outright banning fictional porn/hentai be good in your opinon?
Yes, and I think that a society should be strictly monogamous (no sex before marriage, one marriage partner). My reasoning for this comes from a book called "Sex and Culture" by J. D. Unwin, and I recommend it to every person who's interested in trying to understand why the West is declining. If you don't have the time to read its 700 something pages, let me summarise it briefly: Unwin was a sociologist who studied 80 primitive tribes and 6 civilizations and tried to draw connections between their attitudes towards sex and marriage and their "cultural flourishment", as he put it. The main results he found were:
>Pre-nuptial chastity was the single biggest determining factor correlating with cultural flourishment.
>The highest flourishing of culture occurred when absolute monogamy was combined with pre-nuptial chastity. Rationalist cultures which could maintain this for at least three generations exceeded all other cultures in every area, including literature, art, science, furniture, architecture, engineering, and agriculture. Only 3 of the 86 cultures obtained this apex.
>When strict prenuptial chastity was no longer practiced, absolute monogamy, deism, and rationalism also disappeared within three generations.
>If total sexual freedom was embraced by a culture, that culture collapsed within three generations to the lowest state of flourishing - which Unwin described as “inert” - whereby people have little interest in much else other than their own wants and needs.
>Any change in sexual attitudes always occured after the 3rd generation.
Japan, along with its unrestricted attitude to porn and hentai, has a very big culture around sex in general. If you walk down an alleyway in Tokyo, there are Love Hotels where people pay to rent a room for an hour to fuck each other's brains out. Even at pharmacies or drug stores, it is not unusual to find sex toys like the Tenga (fleshlight). There's a lot of sex happening in general, not a lot of which is procreative.
>Sure, you aren't truly part of said race, but if you help out the industry or around there, most people would see you as being fine.
That's true. The Japanese will tolerate you and may even respect you, but as I keep saying, to them, you will never be Japanese.
>But Japan isn't the only country with the lowest birthrate, and if I am correct, i remember hearing South Korea have that problem.
That's true, which is why I said that Japan's attitudes to sex were one of many other factors. I can't really comment on Korea, but another reason to add would be women entering the workforce and becoming more career-orientated, rather than wanting to start a family (same with the West).
>To add, it seems the US is having some reports of a low amount of birthrates due to...technology in general.
I think there is a case to be made there. Technology, in and of itself, is not bad per se, but when coupled with the individualistic mindset of self above all else, it is a recipe for disaster. The two are not mutually exclusive either, as it was thanks to technology exerting man's will not only on nature, but also on the human body itself (birth control pills for women so that sex could be unrestricted, hormone replacement therapy for the trannies to become something that natural law never intended) which further solidified this mindset of civilization-destroying Self as god (see Unwin's definition of an "inert" culture above).
Got a 3 year subscription before Tarrant's meme spree last year. I've done a shitload of pirating, torrenting, and shitposting and haven't gotten any knocks on the door yet. Then again, I haven't done anything really that heinous such as spreading CP or sharing bomb manuals. If some alphabet agency wants to find you, they probably have the know-how regardless of whether you have a VPN or not. Still, I wouldn't go in deep without protection.
>And to add on from my previous post, would you say that religion should be the government?
As I stated in >>5074
, an ingenious form of government is the US Constitution, however there needs to be some outside influence which provides the reference point for the moral compass of society. Furthermore, there needs to be a higher purpose for which the individual would be willing to self-sacrifice and direct his energies towards. At the inception of the US, religious institutions filled this role, until they later became subverted by various progressive groups trying to put social justice, rather than biblical practice, at the forefront of Christianity. The moral authority need not necessarily be religious because both religion and science/rationalism can be used to argue a particular point. Let's consider your example of prohibiting hentai or porn: Christ said that thinking about another woman is akin to committing adultery and one of the Ten Commandments is to not commit adultery. On the other hand, there have been numerous scientific studies that suggest the dopamine that is released when you pleasure yourself to porn shapes your brain via the mechanisms of neuroplasticity; the end result being that you need to indulge in more risque porn in order to get the same high. It's why, for example, hardcore porn from a few decades ago is today's softcore. Both authorities are able to provide an argument to ban porn, with the difference being that the religious argument is much more absolute in its authority than the scientific one which can change with new hypotheses and experiments.
