“The Truth” – The Classroom of the Elite & Durarara!!

So I started watching The Classroom of the Elite and I am hooked. It’s from 2017, so I am surprised I didn’t know about the anime earlier. They present a quote at the beginning of every episode. I thought that the quote for episode 4 was very interesting.

I also have other quotes that support this thought.

Do not expect people to tell you the truth because they also lie to themselves.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements

No one is truly honest…Even if we don’t lie to others, we often lie to ourselves. And the word good means different things to different people.”

Lastly, my favourite anime character, Izaya Orihara from Durarara!! talks about this in episode 2.

In regard to “Everyone’s the same” I do not believe he is referring to equality. The Classroom of the Elite talks about equality. I do not believe that humans are equal, nor do I think that humans are born equal. What I believe Izaya is talking about is specific to the context (see next screenshot).

OK, but why am I even writing about this?? Let’s just say that I think a lot, so much that my head might explode if I don’t write things down. I’m joking, of course.

To see a show talk about the things I think about is pretty sweet, as if my thoughts are being validated.
