In Spy x Family Chapter 63, information proves to be a powerful and dangerous tool exploited by the most influential.
Kodoani.com – Manga Spy x Family recently went in a more serious anti-war direction with the reveal of Loid’s orphaned past. It depicts the horrors of war and how the government lies to both sides to incite hatred. As a young soldier, Loid was captured by propaganda and believed the Ostanians were monsters, until he realized the real enemy was ignorance. Being a spy is a perfect fit for Loid as he gathers information and intelligence for a peaceful coexistence.
Chapter 63 of Spy x Family focuses on Handler, Twilight’s primary contact at WISE. While this chapter isn’t about any of the Forgers family (although Twilight has a small but humorous mention) and therefore feels like filling, it does provide an important message regarding previous chapters on Loid’s past. Not knowing anything is bad – but a lack of critical thinking is just as bad, if not worse.
As part of the ongoing efforts to maintain peaceful relations between Westalis and Ostania, a cultural exchange event was planned with the participation of an opera singer named Jonas Wellman. However, just before the event took place, the newspapers were flooded with news surrounding the male singer’s problematic behavior, from adultery to ill treatment of disabled veterans. Wellman’s travel to Westalis doesn’t look good as the public currently views him as vile.
However, WISE’s mission is to ensure the event is a success for the sake of world peace. However, one of the agents – who had only two years of experience under him – was absolutely furious when he read about all the allegations against Wellman. The opera singer is scum for all he cares about. However, the agent’s intentions were quickly changed when another newspaper was released the next day refuting all previous claims.
The events of Chapter 63 become more complicated as the agents face a deadly threat. Handler and a new member, along with an undercover barbecue dealer, work together to disarm Wellman’s soon-to-be killer. Fortunately, Wellman was able to safely fly to Westalis and peace was once again saved.
It turns out that the person who tried to assassinate Wellman was a former welder who wanted to “punish the corrupt.” Having fought in the war, this soldier carries a great deal of pride and can very well consider himself a savior whose job is to protect the people. In other words, this man was on the same boat as Twilight when he was a young soldier: both were caught up in the propaganda their governments spread, leading to the Theirs is distorted and manipulated.
Back when Handler was training Twilight, she told him not to see things in black and white. She also warned him not to “try to make things fit with his preconceptions.” [anh ta]People hear what they want to hear and the media knows and exploits that. Information is both powerful and dangerous in that, with just a few words, it can turn someone into a hero or an enemy. History and the media are not as objective as people might like to believe.It is written by people and no matter how hard they try, there will always be a particular story the writer wants to convey. journalistic or historical objectivity will not and never can. equally dangerous.
At the end of Chapter 63, after a number of scandals are revealed to be true, Handler tells the young agent, “Use your head to find out. [câu trả lời] for himself.” Tatsuya Endo is clearly using Handler to indirectly give Spy x Family readers a message.The narrative, or propaganda, is controlled by those in power – but that’s not means being willing to accept whatever comes to mind Handler’s message is loud and clear: think critically about what you read and find the truth for yourself.
