It's All Relative, Isn't it?

I was amazed by this poll.

More than 70 percent of Japanese think their country is a dangerous place, a government ministry white paper has shown.
Japan, dangerous? Are they serious? If I was given a list of all the countries in the world and told to list them by degree of being dangerous to live in, Japan would be near the bottom. Maybe they should reword the survey and try again. If you said say, "Where would you feel safest living? Rwanda, Congo, Ivory Coast, Iraq, Iran, America or Japan?" I wonder how many would say Japan is the safest? 99%?

It's all relative I guess.
