MUEN SHAKAI (Part Two)

This urgent message just in from Swarthyface, again related to the subject of muen shakai:
一日中ずっと家にいるわけにはいかず、しかも上智・東大・目白台・真砂その四つの図書館以外に行くところがなく無縁社会に陥りつつあるわたくしは最近毎日江戸川橋駅近くのデニーズに行って読書しながら長居するほかない。店員たちに相当嫌われている有様だ。そして今日長居しながら無縁社会の到来を誰よりも先に予見したであろう夏目漱石の『こころ』(1914)を読んでいたら以下の一節に出くわした→「自由と独立と己れとに充ちた現代に生れた我々は、その犠牲としてみんなこの淋しみを味わわなくてはならないでしょう。」

What's your point, asshole? Quit complaining, find a full-time job with a decent salary, and work like the rest of us.

Honey, are you writing comments to yourself again, posing as various people?

Why is this message "urgent"? There was no need for me to read this right now.

Dear Beholdmyswarthyface,

You asked if it was I who posted the recent comment, "Probably one of the best blogs on the internet." Certainly not! If it were I I would have called it one of the most self-recycled windbag blogs on internet. It seems to be gone but earlier in the day I appreciated the opportunity to revisit A**x's comment in regards to his navy days: classic! Indeed. While I would like to comment on your more recent utterly fascinating original works, my communication as of late is restricted to the phrases "We go to the moon!" "homo mag," and "hobo camp." I do not want to offend the refined sensibilities of you, Beholdtheswarthyface, or those of Sally, Eoin Hogarth, ghost of Eoin Hogarth, son of Eoin Hogarth, let alone those characters created and copyrighted by myself in the great state of Tennessee by myself, ghost of Josh Landar. In conclusions, my sentiments are exact, if not profound. Thank you very much, sir. Dr. Swarthface. Ryan. Dude. It's me, Josh! If I didn't trick you already. I'm trying.

「おそらく、漱石は人間の心理が見えすぎて困る自意識の持主だったが、そのゆえに見えない何ものかに畏怖する人間だったのである。何が起こるかわからぬ、漱石はしばしばそう書いている。漱石が見ているのは、心理や意識をこえた現実である。科学的に対象化しうる「現実」ではない」(柄谷行人)

先生、

東大にも上智にも属してて、彼女とも同棲してるのに、無縁社会を恐れてるの???? きっと先生はリア充ってやつだと思うよう。
