Capitalism: A Love Story




Very Michael Moore, very one sided, and very true.

I usually don't like Michael Moore films, just because it is often very biased.
But this time I quite liked it. It casts the light on some of the truth, and
it was actually very informative.

deadly, deadly cheap.


To be quite frank, I do not follow the trends that often.
I usually do not read the best-seller books until they come down to at least 3 for 2 sale,
and I usually do not give a damn about those self proclaimed fashionistas,
patching themselves up with wacky garments (I love to look at them, it is a great candy for the eyes sometimes).
Am I playing devil's advocate?Surely I am, and the devil can bring out the
subject of 'ethics' too(....well, once in a while.)

I still remember when Japanese people are described as 'Brand fanatics do not appreciate its values'. It seems to be a past glory; Budget jeans became one of the must-have-items in Japan, prices ranging from 690 yen to 980yen, less than 5 quids.
When I read this on the news, I cannot help myself but thinking about fast fashion and its related issues (This is why I am writing another one of this long article)

'Fast fashion' became a buzz word in Europe in recent years- most famous ones in the UK are Primark, Geroge by Asda(wall-mart), Peacocks, New Look, just to name a few. Those are the sellers that provide incredibly cheap products, and yes, it is still in trend.
This market is a big hit; God only knows how many of us buying clothes from Primark, teens seem very happy wandering in that shop for ages to find out what they can actually get with their limited budget. Needless to say,the severe economic performance accelerates the wave of fast fashion too. This is the matter of 'survival' for some families to choose wisely the products that are cheap and, don't forget, in trend.

This phenomena is well accepted by masses in Europe, and now in Japan, mainly by working class people with low income. This phenomena also put some people, including myself, in dilemmas.
I do, I must admit, buy some products from those mass retailers. Even though it is not often (once or twice in a year, perhaps), it grabs my heart and makes me feel frustrated of myself buying those products.

So,why am I so sad about all this? There are many dimension to it, but I would rather argue from political perspective.
It is well known that those companies are producing their products in developing countries. This tendency is not new, as the globalisation plays significant role to explain almost everything happening around us these days, it is fair for the companies to move their work forces to somewhere else cheaper. China, Bangladesh, or India are always the ones that come on top of the list of places where can provide 'cheap, well skilled labours'. The one thing that is not fair in this whole picture, argued by protesters, is how those workforces are treated. It is common to see that those people are not treated as they should have been. Protesters against fast fashions furiously argue that there must be a reason behind this, and I must agree with them.
I also think, however, that this issue do exist from way before fast fashion integrated into our lives; Brands like Nike or Gap had a huge dispute over child labouring issue for long while,and I am pretty sure so many other famous brands are carrying same problems. The wave of fast fashion just bring the issue into a sharp relief.
When I look at those protesters' site, I just felt little reluctant to say they are actually trying to change the situation. They are doing whatever they can do, and this proofs that protesting is the act of powerless, wishing their voices will somehow reach the powerful people. It sounds very mean, but I do believe protesting is sometimes quite self-centred and self-righteous act of people(this does not reject their significance, it is a necessary hypocrisy.)

In addition, people working for those foreign companies are usually better paid, and better protected than other ones working for local companies. This article says the kid earns only 60p per day to work for Primark. There are no counter arguments to support child labour issue, it is a terrible reality that we need to work on, yet about wages, we are talking here about India, where 42% of whole population fallen into the category of 'living under $1 a day'. 60p definitely sounds bad, but 60p can make difference for him and his family. If we boycotted their products and Primark withdrawn themselves from that factory, this kid will lose his precious earning to survive. I am not saying that what Western (or developed) companies doing is right, but they are dropping a little money to poor individuals. In certain extent, it does actually help poor people more than point-less Western oriented aid that does not distributed to ones who really need it. Furthermore, now the pressure is so strong from outside, foreign firms at least have to perform that they are maintaining their 'ethical trading condition'. Yes, I know it is not necessarily the case for the small contracted factories, but at least for poor workers rather want to work in the factories that have a slightly better chance, Primark firms are still attractive.

My dilemma sums up here: I do not like what they are doing to make products cheap, but if I do not buy them, poor people will lose their jobs and they may die.
I do not think I am exaggerating here, those people may die, if they lose their jobs that pay them 60p per day.

The issue of ethic smells also fishy.
If ethic, let's take the utilitarianism approach, defined as 'The greatest good for the greatest number of people', then in macro scale what the firms are doing is 'unethical'. Having said that, if we twist this around a little bit, in a micro scale, those companies are 'ethical' by providing what 'masses(working class in the UK)' need. So in market mechanism, it could be no problem what so ever for companies to operate in current conditions, because they are providing what masses are need, and need for the masses are very much depend on their income situation, not the imagination to think about others who are poorer than you.

I do not know how Japanese firms are managed to provide them in so low price ( I would assume the cost of storage definitely omitted, and making it by their own Private Brand, or PB, lower the cost too), but the principles are the same. They are providing what masses need. This golden rule of free market is particularly strong in Japan. I have looked up on the internet about budget jeans trend, I could only find a handful of articles about ethical matter of this jeans and plenty of articles praising this new market model . This is partly because it is still relatively a new concept in Japan, and as I said before, there is no clear information about how they are producing. One thing I can say is, buying cheap is becoming a part of Japanese culture. We have experienced long-term economic depression, people are getting used to pound shops, cheap drug stores, and PB food products. We do not know how they produce them, but we buy them because it is what we can afford. Here, the 'ethics in micro sense' definitely kicks in, and melting our minds to think beyond.

So are we all doomed?
Unless we have enough finance to gain the power to 'choose' ethically produced, fair-trade clothes, are we suffocating ourselves with endless dilemma?
I thought so until I was looking into this Bottom of the Pyramid Business model (BoP model). My guts feeling tells me this could be a possible breakthrough to this catch-22 situation. (and I'll write in a different post as I wrote too much already!)

また私、から回ってる。
忙しいと、自分本位な考えに浸ってしまう。
うーん・・・落ち着きたいなー。ちむわさわさーするさぁ。
要はバランスなんですけど、バランス感覚大変難しゅうございます。
今日のアセスメント終わったらゆっくりしようかな。

やっぱり強く思う。
自分はなんて薄っぺらい人間なんだ。
言う事に、説得力もない。しゃべる言葉が、心からでてきていない。
若いから仕方ないと言う人もいるけど。
だからってそれを言い訳に進まない自分は嫌いだ。

太宰府天満宮ネタで、まつられている菅原道真(すがわらのみちざね)の
有名な歌です。今はきっと、梅が咲いてるんではないかしら。

東風(こち)吹かば 匂ひおこせよ 梅の花
あるじなしとて 春を忘るな

美しくて哀しい歌だと思う。この菅原道真って人は、学者だったんだけど、
天皇の怒りをかって福岡の大宰府に流された。その地で読んだ句だ。
(って聞いた)
------------------------------------------
私の大切な風景。大宰府。

母の実家である福岡の家が、天満宮のめちゃ近くで、私の産まれた病院も、もうないけど、
太宰府天満宮のすぐ裏にあった。
神社?自体に思い入れはないけど、祖父母を思い出す景色だ。

厳しいけど素晴らしい愛情を注いでくれた祖母と、
暖かく最期まで私を見守ってくれた、祖父。
彼らがこの世を去って、もう何年もたつけど、(もう何年も経ったのか)
彼らを想い出すと、いつでも心が温かくなる。

夏休みに母と里帰りした時必ず連れて行ってくれた太宰府天満宮が、
やっぱり懐かしい。
今は、色々問題があって福岡の家には帰れないけど、
春に行けたらいいなぁと思ったりする。


「もうそこまで来たら、思い残さずやり通しなさい。」
祖父の最期の言葉は、いつでも私を掬い上げる。

見る


悲しみを、正直に見つめる。

私は飽きもせずよく、落ち込んでるけど、今日はちょっと不思議だ。
うわべの悲しみでなくて、私の奥の奥の悲しみと、本質的な醜さが、ちょっとだけ垣間見えた。
知らないうちに鍵をかけて見えていなかった、黒い箱が心のタンスにあった。
神様は、それを私に見せてくれた。力と知恵を、ちょっとだけ与えてくださったんだ。
赤黒くて汚いものだった。膿だらけで。腐って、動物臭い、意地汚い卑しい自分。

誰かがその感情の原因になっていたとしても、何かがきっかけで私が悲しかったとしても、
その感情の持ち主は私だから、悲しいという感情は、私の責任で処理する。
これは、私の仕事。


24年目。私は、ようやく「本当」の私を知り始めた。
ちょっとずつ、成長してる。
感謝。
-----------------------------------
高原剛一郎氏のブログで、
私も前から考えていた事を、ばっちり書かれていたので紹介。

人は、根本的に一人だという事。
周りの人や、家族、恋人、友人、いろんな人に支えられて生きているけど、
私は、その人たちの気持ちを、いつでも、100%理解できる事なんてない。
そして彼らは私の気持ちを全て理解できるわけではない。
私たちは、別々な個性を持って造られているからだ。
同じ出来事に遭遇しても、感じ方は十人十色だ。

でもそれは、別に孤立しろってことではなく、孤独であるって言う事実なだけ。
孤立は、他人が認めてくれない事や、他者に受け入れられない寂しさから、
物理的に全てから距離を置く事。
孤独になって初めて、自分を知って、向き合えると思う。
孤立と、孤独は、違います。と氏は書かれる。
イエス様は、弟子たちや人々に理解されなかった点では「孤独」だったけれど、
「孤立」してはいなかった。むしろ、弟子たちと人々を心から愛された。
すごく納得。

人生で一番はじめに心打たれた聖書の箇所、詩編139は
神様だけは、私の言いたい事や考えてる事をご存知だと語る。
これを読んだときは、失恋したときで、今思うと、
「依存」から抜け出る試練の只中にあって、この言葉と出会ったんだと感じる。
頼り、頼られる事で存在意義を確認していた。勿論それもいいんだけど、
そこに私が求めていたものは、生ぬるい現実逃避と、不安定なつながり。
相手の本質や、弱さ、強さ、良いところ、悪い所を受け入れて、相手に私のすべてを認めてもらって、
共に生きる、という事ではなかった。
私の場合、あれはただの依存だったんだと今なら言える。

「私がいるではないか」と高原氏が書かれた一言に、
涙が止まらなくなった。あなたがいる。あなたは、いる。今ここに生きてる。

出た


久々の、空っぽ症候群(自称)。
俗に言う「非現実感」ってやつ。
朝おきてから、今、夜の7時50分。
今まで、フワフワ、自分が自分でない感じだった。
むー。困る、今こんな気分になられてはいかんのだ!

今日の記録:
朝から(下品ですが)下痢する夢みて、気分悪かった。
吐き気もしたし。
ガス屋の兄ちゃんがガス栓開けたまま部屋を一瞬出たのを見て、
すごく不安になって一回大学に向かったのに戻ったり。
雲をみて泣きたくなったり。
なんでもないことに無茶苦茶イライラしたり。
家から図書館までの行き道を、全く覚えていなかった自分に嫌気が差す。
とにかくワサワサしてたさ。意味不明やさ。

タバコに手を伸ばそうとして、勝手に口から出た言葉は、
This doesn't make you feel better.
正しい。


聖書と向き合う。

「だから今それをやり遂げなさい。進んで実行しようと思ったとおりに、
自分が持っているものでやり遂げる事です。進んで行う気持ちがあれば、
持たないものではなく、持っているものに応じて、神に受け入れられるのです。」
コリントの信徒への手紙二8:11-12

妹に贈った私の大好きな言葉が目に入る。
その通りだ。今私にはやり遂げる事があるんだ。
何が非現実感を引き起こしたか、心を探る。

続いて、クリスチャンの友人のメールを読む。

ようやく、安心し始める。
夕方、ちょっと眠って今起きる。

やっと、私が戻ってきた。良かった。

今日は何もできない。

私なりの妹の話

(もし人間が、自分勝手で独りよがりの生物であるのなら、私はその見地でしか、
妹についても語ることができないのだろう。)


日本では2月22日。
今日は妹の誕生日。
(あ、平成22年2月22日に22歳ですか!すげー)

2歳しか離れていないから、小さいときから色んな事を一緒にやってきた。
小さいときの思い出は、きっと楽しい事もたくさんあったはずなのに、
なんだか喧嘩したり怒ったりしたことばっかり思い出す。

公文の宿題をサボって、それを家の壁にマジックで密告(いや、かなり公か)されたり、
円盤みたいのを、妹がセーラームーンのまねっこしてフリスビーっぽく
投げたらそれが私の顔に直撃して内出血して大騒ぎした事とか。
(物凄く身勝手な事に、自分が妹にしでかした事はあまり覚えていない。
きっといっぱいあるはず。)

でも何だかんだで、頼ってくれていて、信頼?されているのを感じていて、
私は姉としてのアイデンティティを、そこに確立してきた。

私は彼女がずっと、うらやましかった。
私の眼には、彼女が器用に何でも出来る子に見えたから。
絵だって、ピアノだって、勉強だって、何でも、彼女はいつも上手にこなした。
私は、幸か不幸か、大体何もうまく出来ない子だった。
そんな事はないのかもしれないけど、勝手に彼女と私はいつも比較されている気がしていて。
何だかいつも、変なプレッシャーを感じていた。今もたまに感じる。

でも彼女のその「器用さ」には多分、私なんかじゃ理解できない、
涙すら出ないほどの努力と、沢山のあきらめてきた事があったことを、
海外にきて初めて思った。
彼女にはしたいことがいっぱいあった、そしてある意味で、
私がそれを奪った事もある。
海外に行きたいって思ってた彼女の、ささやかな希望は、私が海外にいるから
叶わなかった。うちには2人も海外に行かせるような経済的余裕はない。
それにとても申し訳なくなって、悲しくなる事が何度もある。
長女は、下の子になんでも譲ってあげるのだ、と私は教わってきた(と思う)のに。
ただ一つ、今でも思うのは、本気で行きたかったのなら、
道は他にもあったかもしれないって事。
でも、私が彼女の選択肢を狭めたのは事実だ。だから、ごめん。

彼女は日本の大学で頑張って、今年の春からは
新聞記者として生きていく。

結果的に私は彼女よりだいぶ遅れて大学を卒業する。
就職だって、お先は全く分からない。

でも、彼女がうらやましいとは思わない。
就職や、学業や、恋愛とか、両立できているのは、
彼女の必死な努力のおかげなんだから、それは与えられて然るべきもので、
私がうらやましがる事ではない。
私には、私の道があって、私の努力の仕方、ベクトルの方向があるからだ。

人一倍頑張りやさんで、言い方はたまにキツいけど(特に空腹時)、
でも正しい事を何時も言ってくれる。
「走りながら考えるタイプだ」と、自分をごまかしながら生きる私を、
もちっと考えろと、いさめてくれるのは彼女だ。
倫理観も常識も、時たまぶっ飛んでる適当な私を、
きちんと怒ってくれるのも彼女だ。
じっと、馬鹿やってる私を見ていてくれるのも、彼女であれば、
アホみたいな話や、漫画の話題や、そういう事をいっぱい話してくれるのも、彼女だ。
だから、私はやっぱり、彼女はかけがえのない人だと思う。

遠くからだけど、お誕生日おめでとう。
生まれてきて、そばで生きていてくれて、ありがとう。
たまにはメールください。お姉ちゃん、嫌われたかと思っちゃうから。

後撰集


つくばねの 峰よりおつる みなの川

恋ぞつもりて 淵となりぬる

-陽成院 


現代語訳:
「筑波山の峰から落ちる男女川(みなのかわ)は、
最初は小さな流れであるが、次第に水量を増して深い淵となる。
同じように私の恋心も、最初は小さかったものが、
次第に深く大きくなっていく」

いい歌だ。ちなみに陽成院は男性らしいです。
恋愛特有の、ねちっこさ(笑)やちょっとイタい感情の積もりを、
さらっと悪びれもなく現す技量に脱帽。

和歌って、物凄い短い詩。
5.7.5.7.7のなかで全ての感情を表すのは、
相当の技術が必要だと思う。必要なものだけを取り出して、言葉をつむぐ。
昔の人って、ほんとにすごい。

Kiss the war goodbye


As an individual from Okinawa, I feel rather gutted by looking at all news about
gloomy Futenma relocation process, and the government's attitude towards it. However what upsets me the most and somehow makes me feel aggravated is the responses from Japanese people. I am not going to talk about anything too political (I'm sick of it for now) but rather trying to write from my own experience. I must note as well, this is nothing more than personal, very subjective opinion and this cannot be generalised as an opinion from Okinawa.
Forgive me to use the term 'us' as Okinawan people in this post.

It is 65 years after Japan saw the end of WWII, but it has not ended in Okinawa.
It is still a struggle for many of us, the consequences of the battle was too much for this small island to carry. Obviously I did not experience all that, but as I grew up in Okinawa, I have been educated to learn about this battle in depth, all year around but especially around June, when the Battle of Okinawa ended. The experiences were told by survivors, we marched to the memorial Peace tower in south part of Okinawa where loads of civilians committed suicide.
One thing I remember is we needed to interview as part of the study, if possible, to the survivors and I managed to hear a story from the house keeping lady working in our house at that time. She told me she was carrying her little brother on her back and escaping from north to south, where Japanese army were situated. On the way to the south, gunfight started. She managed to survive, but when she realised, the head of her brother was gone. she was carrying him, headless. This is just a story, and there are thousands of stories like this.

Okinawa is one of the few prefectures in Japan that carries out "Peace education", to remind the future generation about the War (other places, for instance Hiroshima and Nagasaki carry out similar things too) and the importance of peace building.

Yes, it may seem very 'left-ish' place. Well, it is indeed, ideologically a very left prefecture in Japan I must admit. The notion of 命どぅ宝(Nuchi-du-Takara: Okinawan dialect meaning 'life is a treasure')is one of the first things you will learn when you go to school,and this is a serious concept for many Okinawans.
The film Hotel Hibiscus illustrates an ordinary(well, bit odd even in Okinawan common sense) family living in Okinawa. I watched this film ages ago but in one scene I remember clearly, when a girl threw a stone at somebody because she was mad at what he said, her father told her off by saying 'don't throw stone at your friends! when it is getting bigger, it becomes a war!'.
I think this represents Okinawan mentality very well.
This ideology should be well understood when we consider Futenma issue and its related struggle Japanese government are facing at the moment.

During the Wolrd War II, typhoon of steel(鉄の暴風)killed more than 200,000 people, amongst 94000 are unarmed civilians (this is an official statistics, yet some researchers urged the number is more than 150,000).

After the battle finished, Okinawa officially became under the US rule.
As they did the same in many Latin American countries, they forcibly took
all the inherited lands from Okinawans, which is totally illegal, put them into 'refugee' camps, and built military bases. 18% of the area is occupied by military bases in Okinawa, and Futenma is one of them. What is controversial about this particular base? The Futenma air base is built around the city(it is actually other way round but it doesn't matter), the risks for citizens are immense; the clear zone, setted usually 900m on both sides of airstrip to prevent any kind of accident, is including the area where elementary schools and residences are. Many base related social problems, including sexual and physical assaults are continuously reported. I could go on forever to talk about incidents occurred in Futenma related to the base.

I went to a school right next to this base. Even though our windows are thick,double grazed windows we still needed to stop classes many times when military jets flying right above (literally ,RIGHT ABOVE) our school. I thought it was normal until I came to Manchester, started to study and I realised how easy to study when there is no monstrous noise randomly chopping up all the concentration.

Mr. Hatoyama was shouting for relocating Futenma outside the country, but soon he realised the advantage he had as a leader of the opposition party, say whatever you want because you are not responsible for it, once his party took power last summer. After they announced postponing the decision till next May, Hatoyama government is spending tremendous effort seeking the possible relocation place, but the situation seems catastrophic so far.
In diplomacy, it is crucial to set 'absolute minimum' when you are dealing with other parties. Absolute minimum for Okinawans are 'relocate bases outside of Okinawa'. This is based on Okinawan 'left' ideology, and it cannot be compromised any more with alternatives to relocate Futenma within Okinawa (although personally I feel this is the only possible way to relocate Futenma so far). What I do not see so far, is Mr. Hatoyama's current absolute minimum, which is causing great confusion.

I understand other places in Japan would not say yes easily, even for deserted, money-needed areas. When you look at Okinawa as a case study of 'what will happen when you accept the base', the answer for local authorities is obvious. Hatoyama government is finally looking a reality of how difficult the process is. This is not just the relocation of the military base, Okinawan/ Japanese economy,environmental degradation, and above all, precious BFF relationship with the US must be defended at all cost (this, as Japan, perhaps is the absolute minimum). Having said that, I believe the US does not care so much about this matter as Japanese do, the raison d'etre for the US military in Japan is to show the presence to other Asian nations, notably North Korea and Muslim countries, and to 'perform' heroic position in Japan as 'a guardian'. As long as they could fulfil these, I would assume they could compromise somehow to alternatives. (Note: I am not sure about argument about this issue militarily, so this could be wrong)

This sounds rather harsh, but from Okinawan perspective, Japanese people need to contribute little bit more about this issue to be solved. All I see from blogs and comments about this issue is the criticism of Hatoyama. I see the points. He so far has not fulfilled his manifesto, and it is easy to make cruel comments about the PM(I believe it is one of his jobs to be criticised). But this is also about people living in Okinawa. For me, this is about my friends, my relatives, my family. Here I am being purely personal; It is not fair for Okinawa to bare so much heavy burdens.
I believe we need to redistribute this burden equally, if this is the cross we have to carry. Some people argue sense of discrimination is lying behind this issue within Japan. Although I am not entirely happy about this argument, I could see the point too. (The discrimination from Japanese towards Okinawans were very obvious during 50s to 70s, before Okinawa became popular holiday destination) If we are also Japanese, what is the reason for us to carry all that problems for other Japanese people? Why should Okinawa carry almost all the bases in Japan?

looking down on south, you see beautiful beaches, truly breathtaking sceneries, and barbed-wire fences. The fences are representing our history, our blood, our identity-
and if this is stopping us from ending the war, we cannot just sit there and cry.
So much blood and tears have been shed, so many families have been destroyed, too many people are suffering. It is true that we are benefiting economically by accepting all this. I also believe this is not the healthy, sustainable way for the island to survive.
Slowly, but we definitely need change.

What I really do not want to see is this matter in status quo.
I would love to see the day when we finally kiss the war good bye.
