Enmity of the people against people

  Ideas around the word ‘people’ revolve all around people themselves. It tends to have been regarded to be simple to talk and understand especially in terms of considering democracy. 


A lot has been discussed about what people are and democracy is, as you may nod ascent. I would like this time to think of ‘who’ read discourse on what is called people and democracy.


The main point I suggest is thinking of readability of people who live in a country or those who would like to ponder on global affairs. What I mean by readability is how well a passage is communicated to a particular kind of readers.


When critiques of social situations try to categorize certain types of people, they often find it useful to divide people into the educated and the uneducated, the rich and the poor, and a couple of generations. This way of division has been effective and used much, but what this method tends to focus on is the masses, missing a subtle gradation of different humanity among the collective.


A way of division I would like to employ first is based on servility. Yielding to somebody or certain situations are much likely if you live in a corporation or a community where bosses and managers try coordination of people. However, there seem to be slight differences between servitude and service even among those hierarchical relations of people.


In the case of Japan, people go through Japanese public education, which seriously debilitates students. As they undergo every set of rules given by teachers, none of them can come out of the system without questioning the school system, its insular environment and banality of class.


The underachiever after graduation tend to think as follows: joy never rests in the future but right now, and it must be seized by oneself. This is partly because they often fail to meet expectations of teachers and to find themselves in study. If this mentality leads the students even after graduation, wouldn’t they try to construct a society that runs only for a short period of time? This mentality would rarely find its way to reach good achievers.


By the way, people who have been successful all through the way of public education think it easy to place themselves in high position in society. And they more or less take a control of a company, a department and a community.


I think I should emphasize that the majority of people living in a certain society hardly favor its almost pre-set rules and laws especially while they can’t fulfill themselves with their own mindset. This seems to be why democracy fails to support its pillars. Unless people give their own voice, nothing works well with constituencies.
