Philosophy Wire: The last Nintza…

_64283561_150022843Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-11-24]: Nintzas were once upon a time feared assassins. Now they are about to become extinct. The last Nintza Grandmasters of Japan are now determined to end this line of tradition. Both Kawakami (of the Koka ninja clan) and Hatsumi (of the Togakure nintza clan) are united in this: Neither will appoint anyone to take over as the next Ninja Grandmaster. [source: 1, 2]

Our society has changed (to the worst in this matter). The need to kill secretly has been eliminated. Governments and people in power now "kill" others (physically or psychologically) out in the open. Why hire nintzas to do the job when a Wall Street broker or a CEO can do the work legitimately and publicly without anyone taking notice or protesting?
