The animation"The Promised Neverland"and the Nobel prize winner Ishiguro Yiyu's representative work"Never Let Me Go"is how to relate, the last article we have talked about, the animation is really not weak. According to Daniel's interpretation of"Never Let Me Go", this article talks about nun Klogne in"The Promised Neverland". This miserable, vicious and abnormal (alien) woman who died without carrying a few words is also very representative.
Sister Clooney: 26 years old, No. 18684, is also a food orphan raised on the feeding farm. She has good study and good life. She stands out among her peers and has the opportunity to choose to become a caregiver or assistant. However, she was not the best and failed to become the head of Isabella's farm (mother, caregiver). After her mother asked for employment, she came to the orphanage as an assistant.
Crone, with brown and black skin, apparently obeyed Isabella, but actually wanted to replace him as the head of the orphanage. When she came to the orphanage, she tried every means to do meritorious service and secretly tripped Isabella. She also pretended to cooperate with the children and revealed the information of the orphanage in exchange for the children's trust (unfortunately, she is not as smart as the children).
Isabella has long found that crone's bad behavior and threatening conversation are invalid, so she decided to take action. Realizing that she had no chance to defeat Isabella and feeling that Isabella was going to be the killer, crone looked back on her life. She wanted to give it a go, but she offended Isabella's grandmother. Finally, she was killed by the monster. The nun left the seeds of hope. She secretly left the children a clue about the shelter - a pen. This may be the most"beautiful"thing she has ever done in her life.
Crone didn't become a mother like Isabella, perhaps because of her skin color (there is racial discrimination in the animation world), or she still had a trace of resistance in her heart when she was trained as a breeder. By the time she wanted to be a"mother"like a psychosis, it was too late. She died early and became a victim of the struggle.
Looking back on the first half of her life, the animation hasn't explained much. Let's think she lives the same life as Emma. For the rest of her life, we only know that she wants to replace Isabella and racked her brains for it. Like the orphans in Never Let Me Go, she didn't seem to want to run, even when she was an assistant and knew everything. Why doesn't she run?
Must someone say it's not an idiot's problem? There was a bomb in her body, and the objective conditions made it impossible for her to escape.
How dare the children in the orphanage run away? Are ignorant people really fearless? They also know that they can't run, have trackers and other difficulties. The children's situation may not be better than Clooney, but they dare to run, and Emma takes the lead in running away.
In"Never Let Me Go", the school clones will accept the tragedy and unfair fate of"being eaten"peacefully, which is very similar to the completely tamed breeders. The orphans whose lifelong goal is to be a mother like Clooney are better than the clones who are quietly waiting to be eaten. They not only accept the fate of being eaten, but also take pride in helping the monster repeat the tragedy. This kind of living method can not be evaluated. After all, it makes sense to live.

Reading Daniel uses Foucault's"discipline and punishment"to explain the problem.
Foucault explained the word"discipline". He said that the word contains many meanings such as discipline, education, training, correction and punishment. Discipline is a means of training and monitoring that power interferes with the body. It can brainwash the monitored and submit to the ideas given by the corrector through long-term normative requirements.
To put it bluntly, it means that a group of people are taught to obey them through all-round means, so that the people who are taught think it's reasonable. Even if they don't let him abide by that standard, he will feel uncomfortable. Means and techniques, not much to say, interested in reading.
In addition, the word"learned helplessness"can well explain the horror of this set of means. After"discipline", a small wooden stick can tie an adult elephant.
The same applies to explain crone's idea. That's all. It's time to highlight the subject. What are the means of discipline and punishment in Emma's farm (orphanage)? It's also interesting to sum up this while watching and thinking.
For example, positioning devices, high walls and isolated environments, legends about the horror of the outside world, etc., have also appeared in Never Let Me Go. Isabella broke Emma's thigh and threatened her as a hostage. This is a disciplinary measure. Finding Norman as an undercover, revealing some small information (I have a monitor here) and appeasing the escape group can also be understood as a way of training, spreading all the difficulties of prison escape and psychological attack.
But those are appearances. They can cultivate a group of children who dare to escape. This orphanage is also very wonderful. Maybe Isabella will reverse in the later stage and change from villain to decent.
According to the idea of"Never Let Me Go", it is not difficult to raise a group of children who do not want to run and accept the fate. It's strange to raise a group of children who especially want to escape? There must be a problem. There must be a key figure who deliberately taught a bunch of spikes. Who is this person? Go after The Promised Neverland.
Routine welfare: it's really interesting to watch The Promised Neverland and Never Let Me Go together. Don't look at Never Let Me Go, it's not scored high (not the original, only the film version and Japanese TV series here), and the rhythm is slow, but it's interesting to match it with Neverland. In making a version, if those people in Neverland are clones and those monster who raise people are human beings, will you still feel the same as you do now?
