Tetsushi Sakamoto, who is currently working on issues responsible for declining birthrate in Japan, is appointed as ‘MINISTER OF LONELINESS’ by Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

According to Yoshihide Suga, as compared to men, women are suffering more due to the isolation and he is hopeful that Tetsushi Sakamoto will be able to identify the issues and lay down effective measures to improve the societal condition.

Sakamoto is also well aware about the objective and the adverse effects of social isolation caused by pandemic. He will work to improve the social ties.

Sakamoto will focus on major issues such as suicide prevention, child poverty and elderly care.

In order to work comprehensively on these issues he will coordinate with various agencies. He has also scheduled a discussion meeting with experts to formulate the most effective strategy to help people who are suffering from loneliness and isolation.

The suicide rate was declining till the beginning of 2020. However, it again started increasing during 2020. Approximately 20,919 people committed suicide last year in Japan. This resulted in rise in suicide cases by 3.7 percent as compared to year 2019.

The practice of appointing a minister to deal with social issues like isolation and loneliness was also followed by the British Government in 2018.

The British Government extended the responsibilities of the Minister for Sport and Civil Society to tackle issues like loneliness among a large number of Britons. They modified the designation as Minister for Sport, Civil Society and Loneliness.

    In the United States, 1944, an experiment was conducted on 40 newborn infants to determine whether individuals could thrive alone on basic physiological needs without affection. Twenty newborn infants were housed in a special facility where they had caregivers who would go in to feed them, bathe them and change their diapers, but they would do nothing else. The caregivers had been instructed not to look at or touch the babies more than what was necessary, never communicating with them. All their physical needs were attended to scrupulously and the environment was kept sterile, none of the babies becoming ill.

    The experiment was halted after four months, by which time, at least half of the babies had died at that point. At least two more died even after being rescued and brought into a more natural familial environment. There was no physiological cause for the babies’ deaths; they were all physically very healthy. Before each baby died, there was a period where they would stop verbalizing and trying to engage with their caregivers, generally stop moving, nor cry or even change expression; death would follow shortly. The babies who had “given up” before being rescued, died in the same manner, even though they had been removed from the experimental conditions.


    As you may have guessed, the babies grew up to speak no language at all because they died. In the year 1248, an Italian historian named Salimbene di Adam recorded, with an air of scientific observation, “They could not live without petting.” The babies literally died for want of touch.

    Until the 1990s, the orphanages of Romania were notorious for their harsh, overcrowded conditions. Those perceptions have been borne out in new research that finds growing up in such an environment can change the brain for good.

    We are not meant to ” social distance, wear oxygen deprived masks or inject ourselves with toxic dna altering ” vaccines. Cc ines”….historical evil has taught us this lesson over and over.
