What Masakazu Nakai sought out is not words that encourage people's silence but ones that accept it.

Hiroshi Osada



Masakazu Nakai, an aesthetician called out to "train thinking words" that support people from the inside during wartime. The poet says that it is a new way of speaking that "you must find it when you find a question to ask." And he adds that you should have a talking style like weighing the silent life with palm rather than cutting into directly with academic hard words. From the same  "Explanation" of "Collection Of Commentaries By Masakazu Nakai" as yesterday.
