[網友分享] 讓我們以無權者的權力,為世界的面貌負責

三日假已盡,新聞不忍卒睹。盡餘力整理了一下近日所歷所思,又勉強為現實找些參照,聊以慰藉。時勢艱難,路遙遙,無止境,但總不能手空空,無一物,讓我們以無權力者的權力,為世界的面貌負責。

【違心如受刑 -刀鋒下的教育】
10月4日下午三時,教育局向全港學校發出反蒙面發通告。如此倉卒,有如劫持。學校只可照本宣科,向學生一字不漏讀畢一遍通告原文,又重覆一遍。宣讀的人,煞是難受,要道出自己都不敢相信的內容,還得義正詞嚴要求他人服從,違心至極,有如受刑。令人同情之餘,更想起那些疑犯在中央電視台招供認罪的畫面,台詞早為你預備。何時起,香港的教育被架在刀鋒下?

【善良人永遠天真到 做好心不信得惡報?】
一政未平,一政又起,蠢事至少做兩次才是香港政府。明天起,學校需於早上11時前,向教育局上報戴口罩、罷課、異常告假的學生人數和學生於校內外參與人鏈和叫口號、靜坐、唱歌的情況。有校長以平常心視之,有校長則不然,各有原由。事到如此,教育界尚有不少善良人,願以善意看待這些政策,至少他們在媒體上如是(總有些在搞移民吧?)。這份厚道,自是可敬,亦可堪憂。

亂世下善良人的處境,讓我想起陶傑的散文《我的卡夫卡》和哈維爾在《無權力者的權力》書中賣菜大叔在店舖櫥窗掛起「全世界工人階級聯合起來!」的故事。讓我們一起對號入座:

「……天真的人,絕不可以從政,尤其在一個妖孽羣起的亂世。卡夫卡有一句名言,在亂世之中的悲劇,歸根究柢,只有一個原因,就是「邪惡太了解善良,而善良的人,毫不了解邪惡」(Evil knows of the good, but good does not know of evil)……在森林裏,伺伏的猛虎了解在河邊喝水的羚羊,但羚羊不了解猛虎。在河裏,暗藏的鱷魚在觀察和計算一隻在悠閒背泳的水瀨,但水瀨絲毫不了解鱷魚。一九四八年的北京知識份子如張伯笭、沈鈞儒、梁思成,絲毫不了解毛澤東,但毛澤東看透了所有的中國文人……」- 《我的卡夫卡》

“We have seen that the real meaning of the greengrocer’s slogan has nothing to do with what the text of the slogan actually says. Even so, this real meaning is quite clear and generally comprehensible because the code is so familiar: the greengrocer declares his loyalty (and he can do no other if his declaration is to be accepted) in the only way the regime is capable of hearing; that is, by accepting the prescribed ritual, by accepting appearances as reality, by accepting the given rules of the game. In doing so, however, he has himself become a player in the game, thus making it possible for the game to go on, for it to exist in the first place.” – The Power of the Powerless

哈維爾的問題是:What happens if no one plays the game? (但願,香港每個校長都思考一下。)

【為世界的面貌負責】
最後,分享一下時髦讀物《暴政:掌控關鍵年代的獨裁風潮 洞悉時代之惡的20堂課》第四章,啟首數句甚是精警:“Life is political, not because the world cares about how you feel, but because the world react to what you do. The minor choices we make are themselves a kind of vote, making it more or less likely that free elections will be held in the future. In the politics of everyday, our words, gestures, or their absence, count very much.”
每個人做甚麼不做甚麼,都是對世界一種表態,這是無權力者的權力。
