Dear Jiang Xiaoyu: 江小鱼先生：
“中”与“忠”同样害人- “各打五十大板”并不是正义与公平。 Being "middle of the way" is as harmful as "being loyal to emperor". Justice does not mean everyone shares equal amount of blame.
Your essay on "Economist vs. Humanist" is a quite interesting and entertaining essay. Yet the dicotomy you depict in the essay is too simplistic to say the least, mayby too convenient. But I think it is also confusing, and even misleading.
"中“国. in Chinese, does not only mean "Middle Kingdom", it also attempts to instill all the Chinese with a value called "中”, Middle Ground, as the foundation of the concept of "Justice Chinese Style". It is much like they attempt to mix "忠“and "良”. It is as if is someone is loyal to the emperor and China, he must be good. It is nonetheless one of the most poisonous fake values in the Chinese mindset. Much like "忠“, "中”is another powerful hallucigent in the Chinese spiritual narcotics. If someone takes a middle ground, he must be fair and just, the Chinese "middle ground" value asserts. "Fair and just" in China means pretty much "beating each side with same amound of force".
Yet, in this "middle ground" mentality propagated by the "Middle Kingdom", individual values and worth, plus the individual responsibility that comes with it, are ignored and trempled by a fake Collective value. It is no wonder what most Chinese write and talk is "Descriptive" in nature, there is no value judgment, no analysis, no individual stand, no presence of a sign of existence. There is only quotations, depictions, memorizations, muddy languages and terms... In this Chinese style "middle ground" mentality, terms like "全面“ dominate people's vocabulary. In this "All Face" dominated culture, is it possible to have any responsible individuals? Is it possible to have any progress and advancement? Is it possible to have individual creativity and productivity?
The damage of "中”is as much, if not more vicious in taking away individual values and worth, than the damage of "忠“. It aims to debilitate individuals' mind and spirit, makes them "judgment Free" creatures only looking for values and justifications from the collective.
I am sure that when you wrote this essay, you only want to provoke some thoughts. But you confuse people by not taking any sides, by not offering your own values and solutions. You seem to say that there is NO solutions and cynicism is the best way out. We are here only as witnesses, not participants and active solution seekers. You seem to say that economists (I attach other terms with my interpretation such as Conservatives, Capitalists) and so called "humanists" (Liberals and Socialists) are equally responsible for human miserty and suffering. You somehow seem to suggest, though you did not declare, that Economists, Capitalists, and Conservative only have brains and head but without heart, feelings and empathy to human suffering. This is a gross misinterpretation of the world and reality.
So called Humanists, Liberals and Socialists creat the impression that they care about humanity and environment, and they have the best motives. But we all know that the road to hell is paved with the best intentions. When Clinton list his underwear as a Tax Deductable item in his tax return form, do you think he truly care about the poor? All these Hollywood liberals, with their "Big Hearts" live in the biggest houses and consume the most human resources, does this mean they truly care about environment? All facts point to one thing, the so called big heart liberals and humanists are the biggest hypocrits. They only care about "Using the Poor" and their ignorance to gain power for themselves. Power is the only concern for your so called "Humanists".
You seem to indicate Logic, rationality, reaon, faith that the so called Economists, capitalists, conservatives relied on indicate somehow they have no heart and no sense of reality to see the human suffering. The truth could not be too far from it. Check all the billionairs and millionairs, such as Andrew Carnegie, Rockerfeller, J.P,Morgan, J.P Getty, Bill Hearst..., you will find these capitalists have all been the biggest Humanists. They donate and make great use of all of their assets to benefit society and everything. J, Paul Getty Museum in LA is Free. Everyone can enjoy it. I bet if you check those your so called "humanists" with their pocket books, you will find their contribution to the poor is only a fraction of those Economists. They are only interested in Using the Government and the Collecive power to rob other people's money to satisfy their "humanistic urges" and to cheat the public for some votes. They either have no money, or no ability to earn any money, to give anyway. What they are good at is to deceive others and rob other for values they cannot produce. They the Humanists are the Biggest Con men in existence.
Based on what do you declare that the Economists (capitalists, conservatives) are the ones who are bored to death and want to sleep when they just came out of the womb. Maybe the fact is the opposite, they are the one who truly open their eyes to see the truth and have courage to face the truth. I have started a topic on this forum "Capitalist Society is the Most Moral Society". I hope you join me to post messages on this topic.
It is not that the Economists, the Capitalists, the Conservatives that claim to have all solutions to mankind's ills and defects. But it is indeed them to state the reality and have the courage to seek truth with tireless effort, to grasp that intrinsic rules and laws in human behavior. Do you call that a state of sleep? What truly sleeps are the victims under the powerful spell and effect of liberal cultural narcotics, the common masses who believe in the collective nonsense and garbage to unite with their numbers and votes to defeat the very humanity (human creative endeavor, courage to explore and take risks, and innovation to progress) they profess to defend. What a contradiction?!
But your so called "humanists" value these contradictions and use them to numb, confuse and conquer the weak minded masses. They try to inandate the landscape of free individuals. The conservatives, the capitalists, the individualists, the economists, with their imperfect solutions and efforts, only try to stop this poisonous inadation. I support their effort not because they are perfect, but because I want to use my own brain and spirit, with the support of their brain and spirit, to stop this inadation of humanity by mindlessness, hypocrasy, power-mongering and nothingness.
I am sure you are not here to promote Liberal values, for you are on "youpai.org". But not to state your own values and only to describe some not so real scenario and to present to people as if it is real, is truly harmful.
My words maybe a little too poignant, my intention is not.
