Ten things you can learn from Japan

1. Calm. Nobody beat his chest and did not express a wild grief. Needless grief was sublime.

2. Dignity. Disciplined queues for water and food. Not a rough word or a gesture.

3. Abilities. Incredible ability, for example, architects: buildings swayed but did not fall.

4. decency. People bought only what you need, so everyone something battered.

5. Procedure. No shoplifting, no attacks on the roads, just understanding.

6. Sacrifice. Fifty workers stayed to pump sea water into the nuclear reactor. How can you compensate for that?

7. Tenderness. Restaurants lowered prices unprotected ATMs nobody touched, strong cared for the weak.

8. Preparedness. All — the elderly and children — everyone knew exactly what to do. And all this is done.

9. Media. They have shown remarkable restraint in their newsletters. Only calm reportage.

10. Conscience. As in any store cut the power, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.
