In Japan, some people express like 'Ant -san and Elephant -san and human are same, and life, so we need to value each other.'
Such phrase are often heard in kindergarten and elementary school. When we are children, we learn such things in as part of morality.
But this is strange, because we surely value life, but we kill and consume a large amount of life everyday.
So for a long time I was wondering that this idea is truly important or not.
In this article, I wrote a story that when I watched the scene of the video game, I resolved such a question.
The scene of that video game was as follows:
A princess who does not know much of the world goes a village in countryside.
She looks around the village to learn the real world.
She reaches a small truck farm.
In the farm, old woman is killing the bugs on the crops.
The princess is doubtful about the woman's action.
She thinks that's totally obvious because if we don't kill bugs, they destroy our crops.
In the video game, there was no mention of why she had doubts for killing bugs.
But it's the game that can make people think deep meaning by using description which at first glance has no meaning, so I thought it maybe had some meaning.
Let me say a little from here about me.
I am the person who often avoid the wanton destruction of life. The person who let insect go outside when it comes to my bedroom.
Or the person who sometimes sleep with insects when it is cumbersome to let them go.
In my heart, I often think that "Ant -san and Human are same."
But we (I) really kill so MANY living things, usually.
If we just walk to the closest station for 10 minutes, we often squish several dozen Ants -san and weeds.
Well, it might not be because the city is paved with concrete......
And then, i had conflict rather than doubt.
Saying that 'we need to value each other.', it doesn't make sense.
"Which is important for human!??"
29 years and 10 months old man has wondered about it.
So we go back to the talk about the scene of the video game.
in conclusion, i reached that,
"Is it RIGHT or NOT!? This is human SELFISHNESS!! or EGOISM!!"
Don't you think so?
If i speak more using that video game story,
I think it's beautiful that the princess doubts that people kill bugs for people, but if we don't get rid of harmful insects, the vegetables never go inside of the princess's mouth.
And old woman seems to protects the vegetables but she will finally takes away vegetables life.
In this situation, there is not a moral fiber like 'We Need to Value Life!!'
There is only human Selfishness or Egoism that "we want to eat vegetables!!" or "we want to earn money by selling vegetables!!"
Considering this, i thought obviously,
'Human, Truly, Selfish Creature.'
Animals are OK. They don't have moral fiber at all.
Kill or Killed, Take or Taken. They live in very simple world.
Humans are the problem, as i thought.
We sometimes try to hide our depravity and glorify us. So...i mean we have EGOISM.
Although there are the wards like 'Ant -san and Human are Friends','Everything very irreplaceable',
People who wanted believe that we are beautiful have spread them. I guess that now.
"We can do anything we want freely because we are selfish."
"Let's run riot!! Woohoo, Yeaahhh!!"
I don't want to say like them.
There is the norm of reciprocity. So if we do bother people, we should pay for it.
And i am not audacious enough to do it and don't have enough energy to do it.
Well... I just hope that,
the person who was influenced by too beautiful moral in society and education, and so have a hard life,
read this my stupid discovery (= it's this article), and convince it, and get a little selfish as other living things.
Again, the people who spread such a moral MUST be selfish, because they are living.
To me, it gonna be a theme to think,
how i can make sense getting selfish, in this society which many people don't believe they are selfish in.
