Pure Love Insult Complex Chapter 1183
Chapter 1183. Short Series A / Human Success Part 6
How long are you going to remain as a cultural entertainer?
Yazawa-san told governor Murata.
If you intend to be a politician for the rest of your life, then you should turn over a new leaf. As of now, youre not worthy to see Kakka
Governor Murata looks at Yazawa-san dumbfoundedly.
Then, the secretary.
You cant say that! Murata-sensei, no, were doing the best that we can for the future of Japan! And yet, a gofer of the Kouzuki house and a high-school boy for some reason is mocking Murata-sensei! This isnt allowed! Theres too much to object here!
Then, he spoke to governor Murata.
Sensei, were filing a defamation case to them! No, were going to go to a press conference first! In the first place, I couldnt stomach the nobility and those who think of themselves as the privileged class! No matter what these people tell you, Sensei wont lose his worth! They are just imbeciles who could not understand Murata-senseis splendor!
I-Is that so?
Isnt that obvious?! Murata-sensei, you graduated from Tokyo University, loved by your viewers on TV as a political scientist, social critic, and author, have risen to the position of the prefectural governor after defeating the previous generation.
Thats right! Im Murata Hideo! Im a hero!!
The name of the new party Murata-senseis establishing is based on the Japan Revolutionary hero party, and even your catchphrase is "be a hero"
The fans on Yokohama
Governor Murata said.
Thats why I couldnt decide on which one to use, it was that or "Move on! If you have the mind for it"
Whats this talk?
I mean, I really wanted to be the governor in the Kanagawa prefecture. But, I wasnt in a position to win in that election
Weve just begun! Were just starting! Murata-sensei!
Err, whats with this skit?
Anyway, Im going to post this humiliation Ive received from you people on Twitter and in the blogs! Murata-sensei has a million followers! You heard t right! A million fighters!
T-Thats right! Ill make you regret turning me away! Youll regret this!
I replied calmly.
Look, your threats wont work, and its useless to get us to lose our temper by getting emotional and heating up in the first place
These people are trying to get us angry.
They feign ignorance on their own insults and want us to slip up and insult them, using that as a weapon to fight back.
I can see thats their plan.
Im a voter, and hes just a high school student. Do you have problems with s expressing opinions towards politicians?
Yazawa-san speaks with a calm tone.
Neither he nor I talked about anything big. If you exaggerate what we said and spread them over the internet, then its you who will be in trouble. Kouzuki house has excellent lawyers after all
A-Are you threatening us?!
Governor Murata glared at Yazawa-san.
I havent said anything like that, have I? I do know that a slight smell of lawsuits brings threats to the table. I would rather say that its a problem with what you say. As mentioned earlier, were recording everything in this room. I think that your lines are much more defamatory and threatening
He stared at the two.
Furthermore, are you sure that you want to publicize our meeting? Were in Tokyo, and this is an establishment owned by the Kouzuki house. Kouzuki house didnt come to your prefectural office to make the petition. Its you, the prefectural governor, who wants to start a new party, who went all the way to Tokyo to make the petition. Throwing away your political duties as the governor
Yeah, its governor Murata who came wanting Jii-chans money and connections.
Try cooling down yourself a bit. Find what it means to fight the Kouzuki house
I stood up.
Its time. Yazawa-san, lets go
Yazawa-san looked at his wristwatch.
Oh, its exactly fifteen minutes
Yazawa-san stood up.
I looked at governor Murata-san.
Well then, Murata-san, if youd excuse us. I had fun talking to you. I learned a lot
I bow my head.
I couldnt help you at all, but good luck in the future
I said with a smile.
Well then, excuse us
Yazawa-san looked at the governor and said.
Governor Murata speaks in a surprised tone.
Uhm, what about us
Oh. You can go to the reception and go home. Leave the keys in the room, well deal with the aftermath later
Yazawa-san talks only about this hotel room.
After that, youre free to take a taxi or whatever you need to go home. Good job for today
We left the room.
You sure dont get agitated
Yazawa-san tells me as soon as we got to the corridor.
No, Im praising you
Im already used to it, besides, all they did was just make noise. Theyre not holding any dangerous weapons, nor they wont just suddenly come and kill me
Theres no danger in my life so I dont get scared.
Hmm, I guess its because youve been in a lot of carnage
Thanks to that, Im able to live my life cheerfully
Im not scared of people who dont yield to reason.
The real scary people are those who would stab me out of the blue for no reason.
Oh well, lets go back to Kakka
We get in the elevator and then back to Jii-chans room.
Agnes welcomes us back with a smile.
Agnes, give me a moment, Im about to report the job to Jii-chan
Agnes looked at Katsuko-nee.
Yes, I already called them to bring in the parfait
Oh, they were waiting for me to come back.
I went to Jii-chan and old man Kiras table.
The two old men are already enjoying the coffee brought in by the room service.
The laptop on the table shows governor Muratas room.
They were watching our conversation from there.
Oh, the governor and his secretary are both at their wits end.
Kouzuki, have idiots like this increased recently?
Old man Kira looked at governor Murata at the screen and asked.
Indeed. Theyve increased, its miserable to say but that that kind of people have influence in their directions
However, this one seems to have a well-defined principle, but in reality, they talk about weird stuff logically, yet it has no substance. They just scream their sentiments loudly and nothing else
For some reason, that kind of person is getting support. Why do you think so?
Jii-chan looked at me.
Its because they talk with a clear conclusion. They assert themselves that they are right, and the other party is wrong
Yes, governor Murata.
He asserts that hes right.
Even when facing Yazawa-san and me, he speaks "You should know," "This is obvious," pushing the idea that his thoughts are right and accepted
The younger generation today seems to feel like they must always be on the "right" side. However, that "right" judgment, is complicated.
Thats why they tend to follow people who shout "This is the right thing to do"
So their decision-making on whats "right," has gone down?
Old man Kira said.
Have the younger people of today become stupid compared to before?
I dont think so. The young today can think for themselves, and they also can judge whats "good" or "bad"
Indeed. I think that the younglings today are smart. Theyre wise and know discernment
Jii-chan agreed with me.
Then, why are people swayed by that mans honey talk?
Thats because theyre good at presenting their materials to their conclusion
Everyone wants to be on the winning side, dont they? People like governor Murata will only talk about information thats convenient for them, loudly and skillfully insisting that they are right. If they make the decision just from that information, theyll surely come under the impression that governor Murata is right
People will be convinced that its the right decision, even if its just limited information
Thats right. Furthermore, governor Murata will deliberately try to bring the mood of the place to his side by becoming emotional. If youre trying to calmly discuss the issue, he will agitate you by getting louder and louder, saying "youre derailing the discussion," or "youre misinterpreting what Im saying." That way, the people listening to the debate from his side will feel as if governor Murata has debunked the other side. If he uses a strong tone and blames the other party, itll look like governor Muratas scolding the other side
Japanese people are sensitive to the atmosphere, and so they think less about their reasoning but creating the mood thats convenient to them
Old man Kira nodded.
Thats right. Thats why we cant engage in a conversation even when you have a decent argument. Governor Murata came to impose his opinion, and he has no intention of listening. He only wants to show the people around him his victory in arguments. Thats how he attracts people with how right he is, thats his objective
Thats why his words have no meaning.
He only uses his momentum to attack the other party.
The people above his generation probably never scolded him properly. Or maybe, even when he is, he only secludes himself in his shell thinking "Im not wrong," and so he would never understand any reason why hes being scolded
Uhm, this is a story from my middle school
When I was in middle school, I was in a dorm boys school, but, when theres a fuss during the night, the night watch teacher will find them and knock them, making them sit on their soles
I remember the time when I was in my second year.
That student is in the basketball club and he had a match the next day. So, he lost the game and protested to the school, hes been holding a grudge against the teacher who scolded him the night before
Old man Kira asked me.
Well, the teacher knew that he had an important match the next day and yet, the teacher still beat him up and made him sit for two hours in the middle of the night. Because of that, he didnt get enough sleep, he hurt his knee, and he couldnt move like he usually does, and he couldnt concentrate on the match because he was worried about getting hit. Therefore, the basketball team lost the preliminary round of the prefectural tournamentthe reason being the teacher made them sit on their sole the night before
Thats unjustified resentment
Well, using corporal punishment in school is a problem nowadays. If there would be a court case based on that students claim, it could damage the schools reputation, and the school had to be careful with it, wouldnt they?
In the end, it was him who caused the problem, and yet, he kept attacking the teacher, blaming them to be at fault, playing innocent. Ultimately, the whole basketball team sent a letter of protest to the teacher. Well, its a boarding school and its closed off from the outside world so it ended up unsettled, but
In normal schools, they could heavily criticize the teacher and force them to retire.
If theres a point of attack that you can use on the other side, youll identify yourself as the right one and the other side as wrong, and hit them hard on that point. Once you created that atmosphere, you can trip them up with your complaints even if the other person made just a small mistake. You can deny their individuality. Thinking that its okay to beat them down because theyre in the wrong
Hmm, so thats the trend
Hes half-hearted smart, and has discernment, and so they direct the ways of cornering the other party. The truth is, "I dont like them on an emotional level," the thought of "That one is no good. I cant forgive them. Thats why theyre bad." is what substitutes in their brain
Governor Muratas skilled in that method. Hes good at deliberately making his opponents lose their words, or at the moment they make a mistake, hell do his best to attack them and turn them into people he can beat
Thats the only thing hes trying to do when he was making Yazawa-san or me make a verbal slip.
As soon as we make a slip, hell start blaming Kouzuki house for being impolite and dominate the discussion that way.
Of course, governor Murata never apologized for his disrespectful attitude and remarks.
It may have been good if he was debating on television, but with a child? He acts like a child. Hes not someone we should deal with
Youre right, Kouzuki
The two old men nodded at each other.
Was he serious when he said that he had experience in running a business and so he wanted to apply it to politics?
He probably is. What an idiot
Old man Kira said. Jii-chan replied.
They think theyve become successful because of something as a food store chain growing bigger
Well, its the result of their hard work, but the idea that they could change the countrys stem because of that experience of success is something to think of
Its no wonder start-up companies can make quick management decisions based on the will of a single president. Its a single organization.
Its dangerous to think that you can run a huge organization or the state with the same mindset as running a company
Indeed, that guys been a dictator ever since hes become a governor. He thinks that he can change everything in the prefecture to his liking because hes the governor elected by the people
Thats not how it works. In modern politics, there are many checks and balance to prevent a handful of people from running amok
Yes. Thats why its not like a private company, where the decision lies to the management alone. Every decision takes time
Weve already learned the horrors of letting dictators run the government
The two old men speak in agreement.
If you want to implement policies following your political philosophy, then youll have to go and persuade Congress one-by-one. You have to negotiate with the opposition, and try to win over the officials who will be your limbs
In companies, once you become an employee, your face never changes. But politicians are replaced by the results of elections. Its no surprise that the officials in government offices are taking cold shoulder to the politicians
Every change in prefectural governor changes the policy. Stupid governors dont need to be actively associated with since theyll fall in the next election
When they take a stubborn attitude and say "Youre a government official so you have to work according to governors orders," then theres no way they will work properly
Youre dealing with a person after all
If youre a business owner and an employee, then you can make threats such as "Ill fire you if you dont do as I say," but when its a politician and government worker relationship, thats the last thing you want to do
Its unbearable to have a start-up manager use their senses in politics
Its much more serious than what I felt.
Oh, this is a good opportunity so remember this
Corporate executives who want to become politicians are just show-offs and self-assertive otters. Never trust those people
Genuine businessmen would think about politicians and government officials but never get themselves into the political stage
Theyre too busy running their company, and its much more fun
A successful start-up business. If youre tired of running a company and now want to become a politician, then you havent experienced true success as a businessman and youll never understand the fun of it
People who speak like them are one-sided and shallow. Theyre not men of substance
With that said, Kouzuki, as for that mans plan to start a new party
Its easy to destroy them, but, we can use some of it
Ochiai transport is on board with that plan, right?
Yes, Kurosakis the president
Then, lets make Ochiai transport spit out the money and destroy president Kurosaki
Indeed. Lets get to work on reconstructing that transport industry
Yes, theres still some time until the next national election, so lets gather all these idiots in one place before then
Or just get rid of them all during election
Thats going to damage them much more
Hmm, lets find out which district that man and his buddies are considering running for now and start making an opposition
Jii-chan and Kira are getting excited with their talks.
As expected, this old man is another powerful person thats in the same league as Jii-chan.
The doors knocked.
Im sure its the parfait!
Agnes is happy.
A room service maid comes in with a wagon of parfait, and then
Misuzu, Ruriko, Yoshiko-san, Karen, Michi, and Shou-neechan entered.
Oh, the schools over so theyre joining us here.
Marikos not with them today.
Oh, whats up with them?
Misuzu and the girls are surprised by old man Kira, whos sitting together with Jii-chan.
Old man Kira laughed.
Dont make such a surprised face. Youre embarrassing me
Then, he spoke to me.
Oh, I forgot to mention. My granddaughters been in your care recently
This guys Momoko-neechans grandfather?
Then that meansHes the head of Kaan house, the other family that has the same power as the Kouzuki house!!!
