Now, again the season of Christmas Sale has come.
TV broadcasts brilliant street-illuminations, marriages of the celebrities, the pandemic of the avian influenza, and the poor people suffering after the natural catastrophes. A whole family watching this news while having supper together is a standard scene in Japan. It is very difficult to imagine some body or some family stops to eat in sympathy with the suffering people. But if TV sends swarms of cockroaches, a lot of complaints and scolding would swoop down on the station. $B!!(B
We often eat chocolate at Christmas. The quality of chocolate is getting better. There are well known brands. These are from the nations, which have nothing to do with the chocolate produce, cacao plantation lands, today. Do epicureans realize the delicate flavors and bitterness of the chocolate are the vestiges from tears and sweat of Africans? Today, Africans have lost their own languages. They cannot get free from their so-called suzerain powers.
There are many beautiful streets and magnificent buildings in the world. There are many scholars, architectural historians, art books and guidebooks, which praise and adore those buildings. It is nearly out of my imagination to measure the amount of the wealth that was collected and materialized at one spot. They are really the monuments. The monuments record the existence of the empires or the supremacy over the other people. The monuments record the humiliation and the pain of the ruled. The constructions of beautiful streets and magnificent buildings are continuing today. But for whom are they?
"One globe, one family." "Solidarity and unity." Still we have a long way to go.
"Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!"
