What do you think about ninjas - especially ninjas who surf? Do you think that they are (or can be) a force for good in modern society? There are clear and contemporary examples of ninjas resolving violent conflicts. For example, Johnny, Adam, and Iggy (the Surf Ninjas) overthrew Colonel Chi, and restored peace to Patusan in 93.
Good question. This is kind of self-explanatory, but I think ninjas who surf act as a powerful illustration of existential estrangement and the difficulties with coming to terms with finitude. But are they a force for good in modern society? That all depends on what normative model you ascribe to. Surf ninjas are obviously good from a deontological perspective, as they are duty-bound and committed to the cowabunga imperative. However, are they cultivating virtue or maximizing utility? NO. They are too busy making choka carves on gnarly pipelines, dude. Obviously, what this calls for is a complete subversion of our culture’s traditional understanding of the phenomenological and ethical terrain of surf ninjas.
Thanks for your question, I hope this proved useful.
