you are very much misinformed about the ideologies sustaining the idea of the rich and the "others". Japan is a society, that till it opened too much to western values over the last 15 years to their losses, promoted harmony among Japanese by reducing inequality gaps AND increasing every Japanese living standards and educational levels and welfare levels. The major characteristics of third world countries is the strong ideologies/mindsets of the rich and the "others". And for some reasons, many rich do not wish to live in third world countries and many times prefer western countries. I guess adopting their mindset will lead us there down the road : start with the mindset and the rest follows.
