Japanese People Wear Masks Because They Love Social Conformity

Social conformity also keeps Japanese women thin and sexy.

The elite wish that they could run the West like Asian governments run their countries.

Japan Times:

Conforming to social norms is the primary motive for Japanese to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic, survey results recently showed, dismissing the oft-touted reason that wearers are putting them on to protect themselves and others.

A team of psychologists led by Kazuya Nakayachi, a Doshisha University professor, surveyed 1,000 people about the wearing of masks and its efficacy based on a five-point rating scale, and found that the top reason for wearing masks was because everyone else was doing so.

With its findings, the team urged public health policymakers to “consider social motivations when implementing public strategies” to fight the virus.

In the online Likert-scale survey, participants responded from one for “not at all” to five for “very much” to determine how strongly various motives would drive them to wear masks.

The strength of correlation was then converted into a numerical scale of zero to one, with zero indicating no correlation.

The respondents were recruited to reflect Japan’s general population distribution in terms of sex, age and area of residence.

In the survey, conforming to other people’s behavior had the highest correlation scale of 0.44, while relieving anxiety was second at 0.16.

The West will never have the social conformity factor that Asia has.

Firstly, white people are biologically different from Asians. We are more independent-minded. That is why we invented everything, despite the fact that Asians have higher average IQs.

More importantly, the society of the West is literally at war with the people. We have a hostile government run by Jews and a population that is being increasingly diversified as a way to break apart the cohesion of the people.

Even people who do not know what is going on sense that something is wrong. Japan is a homogeneous society, where the people trust that their leaders have what is best for them in mind. America is basically the opposite of that. No one trusts the leaders, no one trusts the people they live around. No one trusts anyone. It’s a society of paranoia and loathing.

This means that we will never feel compelled to do things just because other people are doing things. I’m sure that social conformity is a factor in the West, as it is a factor in all human societies, but it is now a small factor. The biggest factor in getting Americans to conform to wearing masks has been bullying and threats from the government.

People should look at the Putnam diversity study. Robert Putnam was a Harvard professor who was pro-diversity, but he couldn’t make the hard data about the effects of diversity support the conclusion that diversity is good for society.

This is the abstract for the paper he published:

Ethnic diversity is increasing in most advanced countries, driven mostly by sharp increases in immigration. In the long run immigration and diversity are likely to have important cultural, economic, fiscal, and developmental benefits. In the short run, however, immigration and ethnic diversity tend to reduce social solidarity and social capital. New evidence from the US suggests that in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods residents of all races tend to ‘hunker down’. Trust (even of one’s own race) is lower, altruism and community cooperation rarer, friends fewer. In the long run, however, successful immigrant societies have overcome such fragmentation by creating new, cross‐cutting forms of social solidarity and more encompassing identities. Illustrations of becoming comfortable with diversity are drawn from the US military, religious institutions, and earlier waves of American immigration.

There is no evidence that it will all work out in the way Putnam suggested.

The effects of diversity do a lot to explain why social conformity is not a huge factor in America.
