Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s approval rating of 28.1%, the lowest since his inauguration, in an opinion poll released by ANN on January 23, is in the danger zone of falling below 30%.

The “dark part-timers” who are working part-time jobs, which include illegal activities, have been rampant mainly on social networking sites.

Since last November, there have been a series of robberies mainly in the Kanto region, and more than 30 incidents nationwide in which the same group is suspected of committing the crimes.

The youths were arrested and told that they applied for the job because they were in need of money, and that they were being instructed by their leader where and when to commit the robberies through a highly secretive Russian application called Telegram.

At this point, the leader has not yet been arrested. However, analysis of the smartphone confiscated from the suspect revealed that the instructor was identified as “Luffy.”

Robbery is called “taki” in Japanese, and even with the “one million yen per day taki,” young people have easily joined the robbery gang. In the past, gangsters used to make money through black-market lending, but eventually the idea changed to “just give the money even if you don’t owe it,” and most of them shifted to this special fraud.

Recently, they have finally changed their modus to simply rubbing and robberies are becoming more and more common. Anti-Socialist companies have a list of people who have money, and except for the leader, amateurs are the executors of the robberies. From the perspective of the Anti-Social Forces, the people who carry out the robberies are people with nothing to lose, so they don’t care whether they are arrested and sentenced to death or to life imprisonment.

Japan used to be one of the few countries in the world where women could go out alone at night. This “Safety Myth” is now collapsing, and nowadays, as in other countries, atrocious incidents occur frequently every day.

A group of robbers entered the home of a 90-year-old woman in Komae City and violently assaulted and killed her. The woman’s arm was severely injured with an open fracture, which means that the robbers were not professionals, but amateurs. Robbery and murder are serious crimes, and many people have been sentenced to death in the past. However, in a sense, the fact that they are amateurs makes them even scarier.

The consumer price index rose 4.0% in December from the previous year. This is the first increase in 41 years. Furthermore, several major electric power companies are planning to raise electricity and gas bills from April onward.

On the other hand, most people’s salaries have not risen. According to a Kyodo News survey, more than 70% of small and medium-sized companies said they would not raise wages.

Naturally, there is no single reason to justify the robbery, but it is thought that many people are in dire straits. In times like this, the government should provide support by temporarily lowering the consumption tax, but the Kishida administration has yet to reverse its course of increasing the tax burden and raising taxes.

The “defense tax hike” is necessary, but the total of taxes and social security contributions is 31.8% in the U.S. and 44.3% in Japan, and Japan bears more of the burden than the U.S.” (economic journalist)

(Economic journalist) “Furthermore, it is said that the total tax burden for those who drink, smoke, and drive a car is nearly 50% of the total.

Although tax revenues last year were the highest ever and exceeded those of the bubble era, Prime Minister Kishida continues to raise taxes and increase the burden at the behest of the Ministry of Finance. In France, 1.12 million people demonstrated just because he proposed a reform to raise the age for pension benefits by two years.

However, Japanese people are mild-mannered and few people raise their voices and get angry when the government goes out of control and raises taxes. However, the deterioration of public safety is a serious problem that directly affects the lives of the Japanese people, and the administration is likely to face strong criticism.

As the saying goes, “poverty dulls the spirit,” and as the number of impoverished people increases, the concern about the deterioration of public safety will only increase. How does Prime Minister Kishida, who is not afraid to talk about “tax hikes” to the people suffering from high prices, take this public anxiety into account?
