Say 'Seppuku' the japanese word for it, I hear Japanese dont like hari-kari for some reason, I think it was coined by American GI's
Not necessarily. Japanese society (even today in business to a degree) worked with a system of castes. The peasant caste was the most important as they grew the rice. However the Samurai was above the peasants (merchants were in between, and Eta beneath Peasants). To a Samurai a peasant was beneath him. Killing a peasant was to them like swatting a fly. A peasants life was just something insignificant. If a Samurai wanted to test his blade on the neck of a peasant It was their right. It wasnt a question of good vs evil. The Japanese didnt see things that way.
