"Globalism the Disease" is a 2014 essay written by Hirakawa Katsumi, a Japanese male industrialist. If someone asks me "what's the essay you've sympathized most?," I'll list this first now.

The essay begins with a chapter about the 1999 when Hirakawa went to Silicon Valley. He describes what Silicon Valley'd really been. Gradually, appears disease of globalism that America's tried to spread all over the world.

Some may say "is that truly a kind of essays?" In the 9th page, he desires that we easily read it as an essay, not an economic monograph. So I'd like to go along with his longing.

Why could I sympathize with him? His viewpoint seems almost the same as mine. For instance, he says joint-stock companies is just a fiction. I agree! Every stock corporation is only a fiction, a concept in other words, made by someone.

If stock corporations actually exist, now, why don't you show me like you do your hands? Nobody can. Joint-stock companies is just a fiction that exists within our brains.

But most people don't think so. Sometimes I feel fed up with them, to say frankly. I guess Hirakawa does, too. That makes me sympathize with him.

In other words, I agree with his viewpoint, not his opinions. In some aspects, naturally, I have different opinions. Totally, however, I can agree with what he's worried about, what he gave up, and what he doubts.
