Q: I've read Mishima Yukio's essay. Though it was written over half a century, it says like this, "Recently, bullying among children has become an important problem." Even though over 50 years ago, there was the same problem as we now have.

In his essay, Mishima suggests an interesting solution. He says that it's not a good way to forbid children to bully because they would feel they want to bully all the more if bullying was forbidden. Thus, we'd rather encourage them to bully, however, not to bully anyone. There're some people who prefer being treated badly. Therefore, children should find such people and bully them.

I agree partly with Misima. Encouraging to bully is a new idea for me and I'm for it. But I'm against the others. I don't think there are always such people. Nevertheless, I know people who are fit for being bullied that will never complain about bullying who are always with us. They're characters in novels, cartoons, or animations. Children should bully the imaginary instead of the real. I propose they insult Dazai Osamu's characters. I'm sure that deceased Mishima would agree completely on my thought. (note: Mishiha hated Dazai) does this sound natural?

Thus, we [should] rather encourage them to bully, [but] not to bully [just] anyone. There're some people who prefer being treated badly. Therefore, children should find such people and bully them.

I (partly agree) with Mishima*. Encouraging (bullying) is a new idea for me and I'm for it. But I'm against [his other arguments]. I don't think there are always [people who want to be bullied]. Nevertheless, I know people (we can bully who will never complain and are always with us). They're characters in novels, cartoons, or animations. Children should bully the imaginary instead of the real. I propose they insult Dazai Osamu's characters. I'm sure that [the] deceased Mishima would agree completely on [this point]. (note: Mishima* hated Dazai)
