What is the root of war and terrorism?What we can learn from Mesoamerican duality. (XNUMX/XNUMX)


Your day starts here. (smile)

Useful and advantageous Mexico information is sent almost every morning!


XNUMX years living in Mexico,

“Showing the true face of Mexico to the world!'with the motto

complex and vast Mexico[Beneficial], [Easy], and [Rich]IFully Private Japanese Tourso,

We offer a trip to Mexico that you will want to come back to someday,

I am Kou Iwasaki, a Japanese tour guide and driver certified by the Ministry of Tourism of Mexico.


From Mexico's archaeological sites to gastronomy, local attractions and Mexico's majestic mountains,

We will guide you through the endless charm of Mexico.


I'm writing from Mexico today too (laughs).


What is the root of war and terrorism?What we can learn from Mesoamerican duality.


XNUMXth anniversary today.

years ago from now,

I'm in my first year of college

I used to work at the now-defunct Shibuya Izakaya Uoya Iccho.

Some of you may know it because it is a relatively large izakaya chain.


Are they still in Shinjuku Sankocho or Sapporo?

It was my first part-time job after moving to Tokyo,

The place where I did the hall job that I didn't want to do the most. (bitter smile)

I didn't have money, so I only looked at the hourly wage and chose

But Iloilo "study" (bitter smile)

It will also lead to later sales work,

Furthermore, considering that I am independent in my current job based on that,

I was impressed that I didn't know where my life would go.


The customers who got the spicy shishi-tang were outraged (bitter smile).

When catching live fish from the fish tank, water would fall on the customers (bitter smile).

For some reason, I'm always in a bad mood for the chefs, and for some reason I'm peco-peco (bitter smile)

I was allowed to see the fringes of adult society.

Now that I think about it, it was a good experience,

"If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't be who I am today."

The more I think.

Close to Shibuya Center Gai,

It gave me confidence to say that I was able to do it at one of the thriving stores in Tokyo.


There is no place where I have such memories anymore,

One day when I came home from work,

We were all watching TV together.

Looking into something,

It was "that" picture.


At that time, I really didn't know anything about overseas,

I didn't even know where the twin towers were (bitter smile)

I remember realizing that it was a catastrophe because it was in the center of NY.


Planning and carrying out that many evil deeds,

What level of hate is that?

So is war.

Killing innocent civilians with guns and bombs

Even if you're not a murderer,

A familiar example is bullying.


I think everyone has had a fight,

Even if you suddenly argue or hit each other,

It doesn't mean "kill everyone".

There must be some kind of powerful hatred there.


The world can't be rid of hatred,

Therefore, there will be no war,

Unfortunately I don't think it is possible.


It's useless to hold a superficial demonstration like "I'm against war!"

"War" is a global level,

Or it seems to be inscribed in our DNA on a human level.

of course,

In Mexico, where Mexico is today,

The word “war” has been common since ancient times.

Maya had frequent battles between members of the same tribe.

In the era when residential areas were built on hills to protect them from war,

But then a city destroyed by an internal rebellion,

The Mexica (Aztecs) expanded their power by subjugating local tribes through the use of force.

And the Spaniards who took over Mexica with further use of force.

Then Mexico fought the Mexican War of Independence between the same Spaniards.

Even after becoming independent, conflicts between those in power continued.

Mexico has three presidents assassinated.

After that, there was a turf war between drug organizations,

Clashes with civil vigilantes.

For example, there has never been a time when there was no war.


Today, the words inclusion and non-discrimination are

It seems that it is "obvious" in the world,

But the original DNA of "killing all enemies" didn't change,

As long as humans exist, there will always be conflict.


I used to (laughs)

The quarrel that was sold is a buying attitude,

I was complaining about unreasonable demands and events, but

I don't do much these days.

Rather, I've come to "leave it alone". (smile)

When it comes to friends and family, it is even more "neglected". (bitter smile)


mexican family problems,

About the couple who only complained last weekend,

A vicious driver who doesn't care about people's safety,

I'm ignoring everything. (bitter smile)


The difference between my past and now is

"There is a difference from the beginning.

Therefore, a perfect match is impossible

Let's compromise here.

But if you don't accept it, there's no point in chasing it too deeply."

That's what I think.


Even if you are interrupted while driving,

For example, even if I explained that it was "dangerous", this person wouldn't understand,

That's what I'm thinking.


talking with friends

someone who thinks differently than you

What I think is strange

When I see you saying "straight face",

"I see, I'm in that kind of world,"

Sometimes I listen as if I were hearing a story from the world of cinema.

Of course, I'll give my opinion as well.

So, "No, no, that's not true!"

Even if challenged,

I will say no more to it.

Rather, I try to accept it myself.


A new fad in Japan? (bitter smile)

I don't want to argue with my friends and "debate" and be self-satisfied (bitter smile)

In the first place,

If that would solve things from the ground up, everyone would be doing it.

No matter how much we talk, I don't think both parties will be 100% satisfied.

What's important is that you and your partner

I think it's a matter of finding a place to drop it...


In ancient Mexico, the concept of duality existed.

Not "life OR death",

The concept of “life and death”.


Putting aside the modern “obvious” for a while,

What kind of state is it when contradictory elements of "life AND death" coexist?


Continue next time~ (laughs)
