第30話 反省!?

 日本国内では自殺者の数が年々、増大の一途である。特に中高年の男性に多いそうだ。様々な理由はあるにせよ、自らの力ではどうすることも出来ないと判断した挙句の、追い詰められた最後の苦渋の選択だ。しかも責任感の強いタイプに目立つと言う。
 大体において、最近の日本人は何か不都合があると、誰の責任だ!とやたら他人を追い詰める。じゃあ、その正論を振りかざしているやつは毎日立派な所業で暮らしているのか。
正論で有利な立場に立った者は鬼の首を取ったように刀を振り回す。マスコミの論調も大体においてそいつらの味方だ。まあ、これは会社の中でもよくあることだ。
 さて、フィリピンでは。何か不都合が起きても、仲間内なら「仕方ないさ」。これが良く見られるコンクルージョンだ。失敗をシデカシタ仲間は全体でかばう。厳しさが薄いから同様なことは何度でも起こる。
 日本語が達者なマネージャに尋ねてみた。
「ビサヤ語で“反省”ってどう言うの?」
暫く考えて、彼曰く、
「Reflection!」
「それは英語だよ、ビサヤ語では?」
「・・・ビサヤ語には無いかも知れない・・・」
反省をするという概念がないから、元来その言葉がない。複雑な気持ちだが、日本人も少し真似してもいいかも知れない。(中にはフィリピン人以上のレベルで実践している厚顔の諸先輩もいるが)

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
