Sample text

Even their most basic emotions have been taken away. Instead, the disabled people participating in Aoi shiba no kai declared that if they are called egoists they will affirmatively raise one problem after another concerning the disability-free people’s society. Thus, Aoi shiba no kai proposed that people without disabilities should be aware that they support discrimination against people with disabilities, either consciously or unconsciously. It is important to note that people within Aoi shiba no kai looked inside themselves (jiko hihan) for the internalised idea that ‘disability is negative’ through strict self-reflection.

Aoi shiba no kai also took the view that the value that defined ‘a disability’ as ‘a disability’ is ‘the ethics of productivity’; society is dominated by the norm of disability-free people, and the concept of health is determined by the civilisation of disability-free people. The life-style of disabled people was also determined according to this norm; one should be rehabilitated in the first place, because productivity is a crucial criterion of ‘independence’. Otherwise, one is isolated at home with parents, and disabled people’s institutions are provided to take over the function of the family’s home.

Because of the dependent position of disabled people, Aoi shiba no kai believe that disabled people have been prevented from expressing their emotions. Even their most basic emotions have been taken away. Instead, the disabled people participating in Aoi shiba no kai declared that if they are called egoists they will affirmatively raise one problem after another concerning the disability-free people’s society. Thus, Aoi shiba no kai proposed that people without disabilities should be aware that they support discrimination against people with disabilities, either consciously or unconsciously.
