忧中华165-国人为何缺乏宗教情操?
何谓宗教情操?老猿以为能为信仰献身的精神就是宗教情操。 中国人自古没有西方传统意义上的宗教,当然也就没有相应的宗教信仰和宗教情操。我们可以为扬名立万或当官发财而冒险卖命,可以为哥们义气两肋插刀,可以为保家卫国、甚至为救助他人而牺牲自己,但绝少为真理信仰而赴汤蹈火的。 唯一的例外是千千万万的第一代优秀的中共党人,他们为了共产主义的信仰而抛头颅、洒热血,义无反顾地前赴后继,这在人类历史上都堪称最为悲壮又可歌可泣的伟大举动。 这说明国人并非真正缺乏宗教情操,问题是为什么这种宗教情操在国人中只是昙花一现? 2015,...

忧中华164-国人“孝”的反思
是中国人都讲究孝道。汉人人人如此,连外来的统治者满族皇帝也可仅凭一个孝子治理中华。 孝的本意无疑是人类最美好的情感之一。身为人子,我们必须对父母感恩行孝,但以敬为孝则可,以顺为孝则不可取;孝须在生时予以爱护恭养,不必在死后为其烧钱扫墓。可惜我们尽孝往往流于形式,太注重其社会影响, 有时还有从中沽名钓誉之嫌。 更为可笑的是,为了孝道,我们常常耳提面命,唯父母之命是听,甚至丢掉人格的独立,思想的自由。换言之,在某种意义上说,孝道,尤其是愚孝,实际上是束缚人的精神枷锁。 2015, 12, 24.

5 Poems by Michael Bartholomew-Biggs
MORNING  This morning is clear as its conscience.  Spring-loaded lambs have much to do: they nibble, suckle, chew an itching limb and waste no curiosity on random darts by phantom mice, wind-startled in the longest grass. The mother-sheep, attentive but unf...
