Commentary

There are many superstitions about luck, in particular bad luck. When bad things happen, superstitious people assume they have not completed the right rituals and may go fatalistically to their deaths.

When superstition is abolished, facts can be seen and accepted more easily. Then the right thing to do is also more easily accepted.
