忧中华152-中国社会自古无公权
在传统的中国社会,一切权力的最终所有者是皇帝,而各个层级、各个方面的行政权都属摄政范畴。这就是说,所有的政治权力本质上都归(皇帝)私人所有,各个官员不过是代理而已。因此,残酷无比的专制、任人滥用的专权是传统中国社会的基本政治特征。 再看今日,中国的政治权力宪法/名义上属全民所有,但实际上因为一党专政(打江山者坐江山),其管理原则往往又是’家长制‘或’民主集中制‘,缺乏全民监督,本质上属于公权私用,无异于属私人所有。 因此,中国社会自古以来就是一个没有公权的社会。有鉴于此,又哪有社会公平、公正、公义可言? 20...

忧中华151-中国社会腐败的根由
忧中华151-中国社会腐败的根由 中国社会腐败的主要原因似乎有三: 一是中国人的人性更腐败。我们心中无真神,天地间惟我为大,私心无限膨胀,生活中有意无意地都信奉’人不为己,天诛地灭’的金科玉律。 二是中国的文化含有更多更强的腐败因素。自古以来,我们的人生都太过世俗、太重物质层面、太注重人际关系、太缺乏理性,出于酱缸而不染者既难却寡。 三是中国的社会制度更容易滋生腐败。所有的权力都是私人手中的玩物,即使当今的社会名义上不乏公权,但缺乏社会监督,公权私用盛行,等于没有公权。 由于以上三大主要原因,中国社会不足为怪...

忧中华149-国人心中的神是什么?
忧中华149-国人心中的神是什么? 按西方人的定义,我们的儒教、道教、名教和佛教都不是真正意义上的宗教,我们心中也没有上帝。 我们只有真龙天子和迷信。 如果要找出一个大家公认的神,我们这个神也是三位一体的,那就是我、官、钱。就是这尊神,使我们的人生过于低俗、势利与不安。 与其这样,老猿我本从小反对宗教,几经求索,现认为还不如拜一个像耶稣或阿拉那样的真神。 是的,老猿我越来越羡慕、支持别人有自己的宗教信仰!我深信,有了虔诚的宗教信仰,人的精神会变得高洁平静,其身心也会变得健康调和。 2015, 6, 20 周六

老猿:第9次获美“小推车”文学奖提名
今天中午在网上随意浏览,发现我题为“Y”的一首诗被美国著名文学杂志《辛辛那提评论〉提名获“小推车”2015年度文学奖。这是我第9次获得这种提名(2014年2月以来还是第一次)。因为我这人从来没什么运气,早就对这种事无动于衷。不过,有人欣赏、推荐我的英文原创诗作,总还是令人高兴的事。以下是9次被提名的记录,在此存档: Pushcart Nominations:  1. "Chansons of a Chinaman," nominated by my first poetry book publisher  L...

忧中华148-现代教育的三大缺失
无论中西,现代教育有三大缺失和弊端。 就教育的最终目的而言,古代的西方教育在于追求真理,而现代的西方教育重在知识与技能的传授;传统的中国教育目的是选拔官吏或从政人才。 就教育内容上看,人类最应该关心的是此生此世如何获得幸福,又因为财富对现代人的至关重要性,所有人都需要学会理财,但是中西现代的教育既没有幸福课,也没有财富课,只有少数欧美大学在心理学、金融学课程中掺合了一点内容。 因此,现代教育的三大缺失是:最高目的不正确;内容上缺乏有关幸福和财富的课程。 尤其是中国的教育,主要目的不应该是应试或选拔人才! 20...

忧中华147-中国的新四害
中国传统文化中的糟粕有著名的四害:小脚、麻将、鸦片和八股,此外还有胡适先生所列的姨太太、律诗、骈文、贞节牌坊、五世同堂、太监、地狱的坚牢、廷杖、板子夹棍的法庭等等”我们所独有的“东西。这些”国粹”许多随着我们摸石头过河而卷土重来,有的甚至是方兴未艾,同时我们还亲手催生了许多新公害。 依老猿看,新四害应该包括官患、英语、吸烟和随礼,其他还有二奶和高考等等。 如果要评出新四害,照你看是那些呢? 2015, 6, 20 周六

忧中华150-中国社会腐败透顶 无论是在战争年代,还是在和平时期,中国人的社会都十分腐败,自古皆然。 一方面,社会的管理阶层从下到上都盛行以权谋私,贪污受贿成风,所谓 "一任清知府,十万 雪花银"是也。小自亭长村长,大到宰相国君,都可把手中的权力运用到极致。哪怕一个看门 掌印 的小吏,也能把手中微不足道的权限随时随地地变现。 另一方面,小民百姓为蝇头小利或丁点便宜也勾心斗角,互相欺诈,要么大打出手,要么暗地陷害,似乎具有普遍的犯罪倾向。 是的, 中国人的社会比任何其他人类社会都更腐败,说明中国人是人类中最腐败...
