Human nature is beautiful because we love and rely on our own kind much more than any other spices on this planet do. Love is emphasized in almost every main religion and culture, and this is, like language that is unique solely to human kind, what makes us human beings. Why men alone rely on each other so much thus has invented splendid civilization as well as the magnificence on the earth? From Marx theory, Language formation was the result of the collaboration of early human beings before 35 thousands years.
And morality/ethics is developed for the great good of our whole spices. However, Kiang 2 this theory is controversial. Love cannot be disparaged as the fittest or advanced relation between human beings from Joint labor for survival in the nature. Likely, it is love that makes us a great species that proclaim ourselves as the offspring favored among all creation by our God and the steward of the earth in Old Testament. Love usually meaner unselfishly sacrifice one’s interest for the best of others. Sometimes it is even life. Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God, and knows God. He who does love, does not know God, for God is love. We love because he first loved us. ” (New International Version, Sin. 4:7-9:19). Christians believe that Jesus die for humans sin because he loves people. And “Christ is seen as the incarnate love of God. ” (Pajama 21). Kinship is a kind of love, which is almost subconsciously given or to make sacrifice to people biologically related or ritually connected with us.
In Chalked Hussein’s novel, The Kite Runner, although Babe is hard to Emir when they were in Afghan, he loves him deeply and unselfishly. When the war begins, leaving Appeaser where Babe lived for almost an entire life to the U. S is the sacrifice he made for Emir. As it is written in the novel “Appeaser was good for me. Not good for you. ” ” I thought of all the trucks, train sets and bikes he’d bought me in Kabul. Now America. One last gift for Emir. ” (Hussein Most of time love from kinship is a daily care or small action that is too 224). Ordinary and common to detected. When they are living in the U. S, the power of Kiang 3 more exaggerated. It is the kinship that sustains their life. Babe, who was formerly a higher class businessman living in an affluent life, works at a gas station to support his son to finish education. At the moment when Emir graduates from high school, he suddenly finds that “Abs’s beard was graying, his hair thinning at the temples, and hadn’t he been taller in Kabul? He was wearing his brown suit… And the red tie I had bought for his fiftieth birthday that year. (Hussein 270). Babe loves his two sons equally but in different way. The love he gives to Hosannas is not as straightforward as he does that to Emir. He arranges the operation to amend harelips of Hosannas. He cries when Hosannas and All leave him, which finally becomes a biggest regret, and he missed Hosannas until the end of his life. The love of kinship is impel and subtle, which is like the air, invisible but permeates. ” There was a brotherhood between people who had fed from the same breast, a kinship that not even time could break. ” (Hussein 35).
Even when Emir and Hosannas didn’t know the truth that they are real brothers, kinship exists. Besides, All is likely the third person who knew the secret of Babe about illegitimacy. But he still treasures Hosannas as his own son. Why? Maybe for him, Babe is already his brother. All owes his whole life to Abs’s father who adopted him since he was an orphan. As a return, All fed Hosannas, the illegitimate child of Babe. This is a circle of kinship and love. However, people have sin since born because we all will inevitably hurts others’ good more or less, soon nor later, intentionally or unintentionally.
Kiang 4 When regard human being as animals, we are not to blame for “hurting” someone like a lion killing a deer or as human we slaughter a lamb. But, it is a sin for people killing each other whom as both mankind. In the novel, Emir behaved cowardly when facing the sadistic bully Safes who raped Hosannas. Emir failed to save him because he thinks history and traditional belief вЂ”Hosannas is a Hazard, an inferior people, is more important than friendship. Emir says, “l actually aspired to cowardice, because the real reason I was running, was that Safes was right.
Nothing was free in this world. Maybe Hosannas was the price I had to pay, the lamb I had to slay to win Babe. Was it a fair price? The answer floated to my conscious mind before I could thwart it: He was just a Hazard, wasn’t he? ” (Hussein 77). In addition, he is Jealous and wants to win the heart of his father. Finally, he forces Hosannas to leave by conspiring against him. In the Old Testament, all people are sin because we are the descendants of Adam and Eve, ho eat the forbidden fruit and discover their nakedness and finally are expelled from paradise by God.
The message behind is “that once people know the possibility of evil, they will be tempted to use it to the destruction of others and, inevitably, themselves. “(Pajama 7). It cannot be more true when it comes to the reality. During Word War Two, the explosion of atomic bomb in Japan almost ruined the whole city Hiroshima, causing thousand death immediately, and later the estimated number of loss was more 200 thousand. Though we ended the world war early, the price paid was high. There are two questions.
One, should the scientists who didn’t execute the bombing in person to blame? Kiang 5 deserving? In The Kite Runner Chalked Hussein also uses the Marxist view to highlight the political, religious, social and power exploitation in Afghanistan, where children are not only abused by the adult but also by the children and Hazard minority is dominated generation by generation. (Raman Bunyan) The villain Safes, who is half German and half Afghanistan, implies the western intervention in the Middle East. During Afghan War, Russia invaded other countries for its own interest.
While Taliban are fighting against foreign occupation, humanitarian crises are causing by they. (Until now, after the fall of the Taliban in 2001, violence becomes ever worst in Afghanistan. ) Aren’t the individuals in all these human tragedies sinful enough? According to Karl Marx, bourgeoisie is sinful for they steal and exploit the surplus value of proletarian, and in capitalist society a few oppressors possess the most resources. In fact, even doing nothing, as a proletarian in a developed country, we are indirectly exploiting others and hurting their interest in the plopping country.
For example, the first and second world’s economic aggression to the third world in Africa and Asia, which brought both the possibility of prosperity and the neocolonialism. When we are enjoying the inexpensive Mike shoes made in Thailand or the latest phone assembled in China, the wage labor received is only 1/10 to 1/3 that of American workers earned. And wage is usually no higher than 1% to 3% of the price of the product made. As a result, a developing country’s environment is polluted and both the natural and labor recourses are plundered. Kiang 6 The human nature is such complicated.
And are we really the master of our own destination? In some circumstances, we have no choice. Karl Marx was definitely an optimist about human nature. The communist motto that “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” and such a utopia probably will never come true. Because there will always be the scarcity and inequity in the society due to the greed of men. Just as what is said in New Testament, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. (New International Version, Matthew 26:41). People are so easily corrupted ND tempted in front of money, sex, and power.
Maybe, the last chance for us is love, which conquers the fear, purifies the sin, and brings redemption. In The Kite Runner, Emir finally overcame his fear and saved Hessian’s son, Soars, and brought him to America. Starting from the responsibility and guilty, he persevered in the rescue and succeeded by love after all kind of difficulties and suffering. Finally, the story ends at a scene where Soars runs for kite. Love brought Emir redemption, inner peace, and hope. Bible doesn’t say why people should love God and our neighborhood.
