Thomas Hobbes, an English philosopher, wrote a book entitled “The Leviatan”. In his essay he explained some aspects of the human society emphasizing the terrible fight between everyone.
People fight and hurt for many reasons: money, love or power.
Hobbes said “Homo homini lupus” (“Every man is a wolf to the other one”) so Auggie’s message seems so extraordinary and strange at the same time.
Auggie is the main character of “Wonder”, the beautiful film with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. He is affected by the Treacher Collins Syndrome, an illness that distorts the face.
He says “When you can choose between to be right and to be kind, choose kindness”.
Where is our kindness? Are we only wolves?
