I believe western languages are based on individualism. In individualism society, people would confront each other.
Then, on what Japanese language is based?
I think Japanese language is based on equalism (?) by which I mean the talker is not insist of himself. The talker and other things around him are all totally equal. Everything is even. Japanese language is not for confrontation but for harmony.
Because of these reasons, Japanese people often omit subject. Japanese people do not want to recognize the world as the action (relation of doer and doee).
