If the sharks were people

IF THE SHARKS WERE PEOPLE By Bertolt Brecht "If the sharks were people", asked Mr X. the little daughter of his landlady, "would they be nicer to the little fish?" "Sure," he said. "If the sharks were humans, they would have huge boxes built in the sea for the small fish, with all kinds of food in them, both plants and animals. They would make sure that the boxes always had fresh water, and they would take all kinds of sanitary measures in general If, for example, a small fish were to injure its fin, then a bandage would be made immediately so that the shark would not die away before its time. So that the small fish would not become gloomy, there would be big water festivals from time to time, because funny fish taste good Better than gloomy ones. Of course there would also be schools in the big boxes. In these schools the little fish would learn how to swim in the jaws of the sharks. For example, they would need geography so that they can find the big sharks that are lazy somewhere The main thing, of course, would be the moral training of the little fish, they would be taught that it is the greatest and most beautiful thing te when a little fish happily sacrifices itself, and that they should all believe in the sharks, especially when they said they would ensure a bright future. The little fish would be taught that this future would only be assured if they learned obedience. The little fish should beware of all low, materialistic, egoistic and Marxist tendencies and immediately report it to the sharks if one of them betrayed such tendencies. If sharks were people, they would of course also wage wars among themselves in order to conquer strange fish boxes and strange little fish. The wars would be waged by their own little fish. They would teach the little fish that there was a huge difference between them and the fish of the other sharks. The little fish, they would proclaim, are known to be mute, but they are silent in very different languages ​​and therefore cannot possibly understand each other. To every little fish that killed a few other little fish, hostile little fish that were silent in a different language, they would attach a small medal made of seaweed and give them the title hero. If the sharks were human, there would of course be an art with them too. There would be beautiful pictures in which the teeth of the sharks would be shown in splendid colors, their throats as pure pleasure gardens, in which one can romp around magnificently. The theaters on the ocean floor would show how heroic little fish enthusiastically swim into the shark's tongues, and the music would be so beautiful that the little fish streamed into the shark's throat with their sounds, the band first, dreamily and enveloped in the most pleasant thoughts. There would also be a religion if the sharks were human. She would teach that the fish only begin to live properly in the belly of the shark. Incidentally, it would also stop if the sharks were human beings, all small fish. as it is now, are the same. Some of them would be given offices and placed over the others. The slightly larger ones might even eat the smaller ones. That would only be pleasant for the sharks, as they would then have to eat larger chunks themselves more often. And the bigger fish in charge will keep the fish in order, become teachers, officers, engineers in box construction, and so on. In short, there would only be a culture in the sea if the sharks were humans. take all sorts of sanitary measures at all. If, for example, a small fish were to injure its fin, it would be bandaged immediately so that the shark would not die away before its time.
