Six dead in Tokyo stabbing frenzy

Stabbing rampage in Akihabara [Tokyo]: 7 people killed

睇完, 眼都突埋.

日本人是否就快崩潰? 之前興自殺放毒氣, 每每搞到周圍鄰居受害及被疏散, 現在又有人在秋葉源通街殺人.

日本人每每做事極度認真, 提供一流服務, 但其實大家都是人, 總有極限, 結果就是產生大量精神有問題的人, 自殺率冠絕已發展國家, 付出的代價之大, 在我們的角度看當然絕對不值得.

以 前, 還只是自己自殺死便算, 但這兩件事是否暗示他們覺得自己死太過不值, 覺得社會對他們虧欠太多, 要找些人陪葬, 或者要世人記得他們曾經存在過. 對日本來說, 從另一角度看, 又是否是一件好事? 要人們記得自己, 算是其中一種個人主義的表現吧, 而個人主義就是日本高度集體性的稀有物. 有這種自私行為, 是一種"進步", 還是只不過是趕狗入窮巷的最終反擊.

十六世紀時耶穌會就開始接觸日本人, 曾有過以下的感想:
“They have rites and ceremonies so different from those of all the other nations that it seems like they deliberately try to be unlike any other people. The things which they do in this respect are beyond imagining and it may be truly said that Japan is a world the reverse of Europe; everything is so different and opposite that they are like us in practically nothing… Now all this would not be surprising if they were like so many barbarians, but what astonishes me is that they behave as very prudent and cultured people in all these matters."

現代的日本, 或者已經改變很多. 但歧視異類, 像那些學校欺凌, 好像還是相當普遍. 要不然, 那些日劇, 日漫就不會描述那麼多有關欺凌弱小的故事, 主題往往熱愛到爆, 友情最重要之類, 因為他們現實生活就很缺乏這些東西.
