‘Magical Glasses’ picture book illustrated the glasses of good and evil that cause blindness against various tragedies. Then what would happen if one keeps wearing them? The theme of this picture book may associate with the psychological cause of the expansion of armaments.
The principal character in Magical Glasses picture book has decided that he would never take off the glasses, since he was shocked to see the bloody war. After wearing the glasses he never sees red blood from people.
After that what would happen to him who never takes off the glasses of good and evil?
This picture book illustrated one’s world, who keeps wearing the glasses of good and evil. So I would say that it is a sequel to Magical Glasses but it is independent as a story.
After reading this picture book, I am afraid that some readers may think that good and evil addiction is 'bad' after all.
However the theme of the story is not for moral purpose at all. It illustrates no ethics or religious belief.
Instead of that, it illustrates that if you use illusions and live in illusions, then you cannot see the real world because of the illusions, that is, natural cause and effect only.
At the last scene, the frightened woman has many weapons.
If you think and replace her to nations, then her psychology would look similar to the one behind the expansion of armaments in this world.
If you leave ‘fear’ in people’s mind as it is, it would be hard to realize the reduction of armaments, no matter how you oppose to the arms races.
On the other hand, if you see through the fear of people and its cause, and if you work with it with pinpoint accuracy,
the way to reduce armaments would open, the writer hopes.
If people get along well and live in harmony, then there is not need to kill each other.
The danger of not seeing
The theme of this picture book is NOT about physical color blindness but about the psychological illusions caused by good and evil.
