Nomad has been a fad topic among some Japanese who are advocating social shift to more open society.
Who are advocating nomadic life style? Progressive nomads are hippie while conservative nomads are Tea partiers. They are mostly fringe independent quasi-intellects. Some people can navigate through life in any style; being nomadic or not. This concept of nomadic life is popular in Japan but in other countries simply nomads are just considered to be independent self-employed entrepreneurs or small business people. Popularity of nomadic life style reflects the rigid static nature of Japanese society which has been constantly crumbling past 10 years.
Nomads can be independent like migratory birds or parasitic like parasites. Parasitic nomads will die out when their host system goes down. So parasitic nomads should not kill off the host. Successful parasitic nomads are the ones which will coexist with the host without being detected, maintaining symbiotic relationship. If nomads become too successful, provoking the host’s self-defence mechanisms, the host might try to root out the nomads.
Nomads often criticises the establishments but they rarely examine their claims with same rigor. If they achieved the lists of demands they are longing for, they may become unsatisfied since they cannot blame their archenemies any more.
What is the difference between anarchists and nomads? Nomads will not fight for better or worse.
