I would rather be a peasant,because I would have a social place better than others.I would be resbonsible for the feeding of my land and I would simply chose not to have a family. I think it would be me and a couple others just out to farm and serve our country.
Those are good points, but everyday you would have to slay out in the fields. Also, that would take a lot of muscle having to put them in the dirt, take them out, and etc.
I agree because u stay on the fields allday.Plus peasents have to steal in order to live, i'd be a merchant easy beacause all u pretty much do is live.
I agree you are higher in the social system and more respected. If I was a merchant I would be treated and thought of as a scum. The peasent is the obvious choice.
I would rather want to be a merchant, because I would like building stuff more than growing crops. Also, so I wouldn't have to steal rice to survive. And having to be outside everyday in the hot summer.
I see your point, Armone. Merchants don't exactly build stuff. They just buy stuff then sell it. Peasants farm and are more important to Japan.
I agree that peasants were a harder class and much more important. The peasants were how everyone in the Japan civilization was fed.
I disagree. I enjoy being outside and working, especially if i get to jump into water (ocean) afterwords. Plus, being a merchant, you wouldnt really build anything, youd just be selling the things to build. Plus, if you were a merchant, then you would be called ¨a leech of society¨, your opinion wouldnt be valued, and you have to live on the outskirts.
I would rather be a peasant because the peasants are more important. They are also the working class. Merchants just sell stuff. They don't work for anything.
I get your point Sean, but I would much rather be rich and not work. Plus I don't care about how high you are in class. All you care about is your health and not dying.
I see your point Sean, but I think that not having to work for everything would be great. Also you would get a lot of money is you were a Merchant.
I agree with you, but Merchants are rich but like you said peasants farm you still get food.
so you would rather be a pesent and have a chance of dieing from starvation. than live a be full.
I agree with you Sean. Peasants are more important because they are the working class and just selling stuff isn't very hard to do for a job.
I would rather be a merchant because all you do is collect stuff and trade to get rich. Peasents might be an upper class but Merchents at least get food. So I would way rather be a merchant.
Honestly I would rather be a merchant. I would want to be a merchant because they get a lot of money and they don't have to do any work at all. Yes the other people of Japan did not like the Merchants because they got rich off of other peoples work, but I could manage with being hated.
Good point but most merchats were looked down on and it was pretty bad sometimes you wouldent always get rich just to let you know.
I would much rather be a merchant. Peasants are higher in social class, but they are still very poor. They work day in day out but only get some crops back as charity. Merchants don't even have to work that hard but they are rich and they know their family would be safe.
I would rather be a peasant because you would still get food... If you steal it, you would have to for you and your family.
Life of a peasant = hard work, long hours, and little money....NO THANKS. Yes, peasants get more respect and they are seen as higher on the social ladder. But in all honesty, I much rather do little work and profit from the hard work of others. Yes this might be seen as greedy or lazy, but while you are doing back breaking labor I am going to be sitting back in my comfortable chair watching YOU, the peasant, sweat and make me the money I need to carry on this lavish lifestyle.
I would rather be a Merchant, They get all the food. I would have a choice of only giving the artisans and peasants only 1 piece of food.
I also get to keep Rice and not have to steal some.
I would rather be a peasent. This is because I love to be outside. Also merchants are selfish and stuff like that. Plus growing crops isn't that hard.
You might love the outside but do you love the temperature 5 degrees or do you prefer 120? I would sit in my stand protected from the elements.
I would be a merchant because they end up rich. Also they work under the protection of their stand, not out in the middle of a field completely vulnerable to the elements. Finally you don't have a very hard job all you have to do is find a way to make people buy stuff.
I totally agree with you. I would rather be all rich and have an easy job than have a hard job and have to worry about starving to death.
I would rather be a Merchant. I would rather be a merchant because then I would be rich and not have to worry about starving to death because I could buy my own food, not have to grow it. I would also be able to pay the Daimyo tax money without any issues.
I would rather be a merchent. Because i can care for my family. they can have food in their belleys thing like that. and think you wouldnt have enouh money to buy a phone.
I agree with you all the way Paris. Merchants are the best they have wealth, food, nice land,and more what you can think of.
I would rather be a peasent than a merchant. I would because, I would be valued in society. Plus, as a peasent, if I didnt like the government, if peasents rebelle, than the Samurai die. If the mercants rebelle, whats gonna happen? Oh no, no more leeches of society, what EVER shall we do? yeah, I dont think so
I agree wit you Alex because there are a lot more peasants than merchants. It would be a lot easier for peasants to rebel than merchants. But the peasants will probably lose against the samurai.
I will want to be a Merchant. I want to be it because they are rich and have the peasants, artisans, to make there tools and food. Also they have the samurai to fight for them and a pretty big land.
i would want to be a merchant because they don't do anything but they have food for their family.They do trade,but thats not really doing anything.I wouldn't gat killed either so yeah I would rather be at the bottom.
Why? Well I know that peasants are like a respected and treated lively but they earn no money. I sound a little spoiled but still, I would much MUCH rather earn more money and support my family than be praised and watch my family starve.
I would rather be a Peasant. That's because peasants are more respected than Merchants. Merchants are known as "Parasites". Although Merchants might be richer, I would still want to be a Peasant.
I would want to be a merchant because if I was a peasant and I was caught steling something I would not want to diy. also if I was a merchant I would be ritch and I do not have to wory about starving to deth.
I would rather be a merchant than a peasant because yeah I know that peasants get a lot more respect but still they have to do all that hard work and get like NOTHING in return. Merchants don't do anything but they get paid really well. I'd much rather support my family than be respected.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
