I want to be a cosmopolitan who resists exploitation - Thoughts on Wife of a Spy -

I saw the movie "Wife of a Spy".
I know it's a movie with so much to say about love, justice, acting, composition, direction, etc.
Personally, I felt a strong connection to the "structure of exploitation," which I have been thinking about exclusively lately.

By the way, this is the most strongly stimulating movie I have seen recently.
(As far as I can remember, the one that inspired me to the same extent was "Shin Godzilla", where I was simply impressed by Godzilla's strength.)

The following contains spoilers.

This movie is set at the time of World War II and deals with Japanese colonialism.
Yusaku Fukuhara, played by Issei Takahashi, is very cool as he harshly criticizes the human experimentation by Unit 731, which produced colonialism, and resists it with all his might.
When his wife Satoko (Yu Aoi) tries to stop him from accusing the Unit 731 of human experimentation, he says to her,

"I'm a cosmopolitan, and my allegiance is to universal justice.".

Colonialism by countries, including Japan, was a horrible exploitation.
On the other hand, the exploitation is still going on steadily day by day under the name of "globalism".
The lights of Tokyo, which used to be built on the exploitation of Manchurian laborers, still shine brightly at the expense of exploited people in various places, although the relationships between them have become complicated and indirect, making it difficult to see.
And such exploitation continues unabated on every scale.
"Capitalism", "corporations", "the food chain"
They all have the same structure of exploitation and prosperity.

Since I became aware of this linkage recently, I've been thinking about how to live a life where I'm not trapped by it, and where I can obtain natural freedom by knowing what is enough.
However, when it comes to the things such as food chain, it is quite difficult to overcome this problem.
Veganism and organicism have been of some interest to me lately, but I'm not ready to make them my way of life.
The inertia of exploitation is so powerful that it is easy for a creature whose instinct is survival to surrender to its power, and it takes more strength of will and practice to break free from the structure to which we have become accustomed.

After all, watching this film, I must have admired Yusaku, who followed his own beliefs and lived without any inertia, and Satoko, who also lived without any inertia, making it her first principle to live together with Yusaku.
(I also felt pity for Taiji (Higashide Masahiro), who was at the mercy of the huge inertia of the Japanese military and was unable to live the life he had originally set out to live.)

I'm a vain person, so I don't want others to pity me, and I want to be the person I like to be.
To do so, I probably need a strong determination.
To resist the forces of exploitation that are overrunning humanity, however, is done by  a cosmopolitan spirit, funded by the power of empathy that is so characteristic of humans.
In this sense, this battle seems to be very bad, but it is also surprisingly redeeming.
Human beings are so weak and yet so strong.
