The Whiteness descended onto Japan in true Black Swan fashion. Only nature knew what lay in waiting for the poor island of Nippon. An island steeped in ritual and history, it was to be utterly destroyed in a few blinks of an eye. Now, it lays in ruins.
Unfortunately because of society the loss has only begun. Still to see are damages left upon a people who have already dealt with nuclear waste of horror beyond imagination. This time the carnage will be slow, and may come as a surprise, because the news has been veiled by the self proclaimed superiors, so to keep honor; how backwards is this considering the past principles would have made the culture act within seven breathes. Now, complacency has eliminated past rites. Now the end of the culture is at hand.
Industry is done. Humanity is finished. The survivors will flee, and with them memories dear. The land will last forever, but only in a tear.
As the corporations act to cap their losses, both financial and relation wise, the people stew in the toxic heap of their home. The face saved will only be for the corporations, and it will only be so to keep up with the New World, as they do not want to get behind the ever charging mythos that a flat world is in the benefit for the people.
When the time comes to act, the rest of the world will be rotting in the lie of the fiat ponzi. No one will be able to help the Japanese situate themselves into any comfort. Japan will be on their own. They may sell US treasuries, they may spend their dollar holdings, they may print Yen like never before. All of these percieved solutions will quicken the death spiral of the fiat ponzi. There is nothing that will save Japan from the Whiteness.
