Chapter 27:

Why did the Little Prince return to his original planet?

Other themes:

一、Anti Adult's Social Valuation

1.Anti authority:

For children, grown-ups are the representation of authority. Grown-up's grown-up is the king, who is the acme of authority. From the past "the winner is the king" to the democratic society nowadays, who really can judge others fairly? In this world, which is more important to judge others or to judge yourself?

2.Anti Conceit

Conceited people, more often than not, have talent, arrogant, have some achievement or have status in society. However, what is adoration? What kind of person needs to be adored? Confucius had ever said: "I am not worried about others don't know me, but worried about I don't know others."

3.Anti waste money at will

For rootless businessmen, where is the benefit where is the road. Human bring the advance of matter because of the progress of civilization. The connection of person and capitalism deepen person's desire for the physical things. Relatively, it also deepens indifference between people and people.

二 、The theory of Rescuing

It's no doubt that The Little Prince is just like a sharp knife. It cuts human's tumor. We know the importance of friend and understand that friend can't be bought by money. Only when we make friends with heart can we get the true friends. The Little Prince's trip draws the outline of the world's ugliness. He used his life to recall the author's original zeal for the life and used his death to rescue the author's loss for the world. The Little Prince came from the lightless space and returned to the lightless illusory scene.
