「交換」が覆い尽くす社会



日本の地方を車やバイクで走っていると、どんな辺鄙な場所に行っても山にはトンネルが開き、道路は舗装されていて安全に走れることに驚く。山に登れば、登山道が整備され、石を積み上げて階段が作られ危険が避けられる。









この本を読むまではそれらについて、先人たちの努力をぼんやりとただありがたいなと思うだけだった。この本を読んだ後、それらは「贈与」だったのだと膝を打った。

“Want to know how to make yourself instantly unhappy? Compare yourself with someone else.”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

“Why do we own so many things when we don’t need them? What is their purpose? I think the answer is quite clear: We’re desperate to convey our own worth, our own value to others. We use objects to tell people just how valuable we are.”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism

“We are more interested in making others believe we are happy than in trying to be happy ourselves. —FRANÇOIS DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD”
Fumio Sasaki, Goodbye, Things: The New Japanese Minimalism
