Oh, humankind, listen
All of history until now has been the history of class strife.
There are two wars in the world.
One is the war between humans and demons.
However, the fact that there is a more tenacious war than that,
a war that has been ongoing for the past 1,500 years without a single moment of rest, at that.
Do you, mankind, know what that war is?
That is the devastating war which lasts forever.
Compared to that, the war between the humans and demons is foolish.
The humans and demons have conflicted against one another merely 8 times since the beginning of the world, however, that massive war has continued on every year, every month, every day, and every second.
Free citizens and slaves,
aristocrats and commoners,
barons and serfs,
the suppressors and the oppressed.
Are you all still unable to hear
the hoarse voice of devastating war that is being fought by these people?
This is the eternal war, only this is the true war.
Even if the demons were to disappear from the continent
you will all still be at war.
As 1,500 years has already flown by, and even if another 1,500 years were to flow by once more,
the war of class, the war of authority will continue unchanged.
To all of the sons and daughters being oppressed in the world, listen.
500 years ago, Demon Lords advanced onto the continent for the first time in history.
On that day, the rulers of kingdoms lamented about the conservation of mankind.
Your ancestors went to war while risking their lives in order to protect mankind.
Despite that, even after the war was over, serfs were still serfs and
the subjects were still subjects.
400 years ago, the Demon Lords descended onto the continent for the second time.
Your ancestors fought against the demons once more and came out victorious.
How surprising. How impressive.
You are all truly the shield which protects humankind.
Despite that, even after the war was over, peasants were still peasants and subjects were still subjects.
