柏杨走了

《丑陋的中国人》作者柏杨最近逝世。

我是华校生,自小被中华文化洗脑。中学时阅读柏杨的书,当时在想:“太夸张了!中国人不丑陋,柏杨才丑陋。”

大学时我接触了佛教,然后又在美国住了一年。随着视野增广,想法也慢慢改变。我开始觉得:柏杨‘唱衰’中国人,并非没有道理。

柏杨逝世,许多大马知名人士,包括董教总的沈慕羽,都表惋惜,这令我感到惊讶。近年来中国崛起,大马华裔都以身为华人感到自豪,大家都认为中国的五千年文化是最优越的。像沈慕羽这一类保守派人物,又怎会欣赏柏杨的作品呢?

  2. I have to say some portions of Chinese people are ugly. I had recently experienced the rudeness of Chinese people in the mainland. They are loud talking, smoking in public places, driving recklessly, etc. But that happens to all races in this world, including American, British, etc.

    Of course you don't know. Nobody in your school likes to talk about 丑陋的中国人.

    It is true that all races have their ugly side. But Chinese - including Chinese Malaysians - are particularly proud of their 5000 years culture.

  4. 柏杨“唱衰”中国人是吧有点像敦马“唱衰”马来人,用心良苦啊~
    中国五千年流传下来的文化当中无可否认有优秀的地方,连马来人在国会里都会引用孙子兵法。只是崛起得快,大家都着重于工业科技的发展,却忘了中华文化里的道德。

    是英雄重英雄嘛,就不知沈老欣不欣赏李敖的作品咧?呵呵~

    I don't doubt there are strong points in Chinese culture. The problem is: before Qin Dynasty, it was 百家争鸣. Even in Tang Dynasty, Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism 三强鼎立. Unfortunately, since Song Dynasty it has been 独尊孔家.
