“How to Be a Dictator: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century” by Frank Dikötter
In a “fully developed cult of personality,” he explains, “no one can any longer be quite certain any more who supports and who opposes the dictator.” This confusion, the book shows, has been indispensable to maintaining dictatorships after an initial stage of terror and violence. “A dictator must instil fear in his people, but if he can compel them to acclaim him he will probably survive longer.”

被爱死的国家

这当然跟日本政府的架构有很大关系。
比如说,日本内阁理论上是文官政府。但是军队的首脑又自动地是内阁成员。他们并不受首相控制,一不高兴就可以辞职。一辞职内阁就倒台了。

所以日本首相的权力很有限。日本军队做起事情来,经常是不跟内阁打招呼。但是闯出篓子以后,财政啊,外交啊,又要内阁去给他们擦屁股。所以内阁也很头疼。

要说起来,他们也是被“举国一致”这四个字给困住了。
本来,他们坐在那么重要的位置上,就是要向国家贡献自己的经验和智慧。他们要报答国家,最好的方式就是做一个有脑子的人。可是如果所有人想法都一致的话,还需要那么多精英干什么,一个就够了呀。

所谓养蛊反噬,他们已经被困在局中,就只能表现自己的大无畏,表现自己的爱国。其实他们爱的不是国家,而是自己爱国的那种感觉。

许子东:不用着急,社会文化的主流从来不是多数人决定的-虎嗅网
可以比较的是这样, 那个时候年轻的人做很多蠢事、傻事、坏事,但是他们是相信地去做,今天的人做很多好事、有利的事,可是他们有时候自己都不相信,我不知道哪一个好或不好。

00后进入校园,可能也会让校园有一些不一样的变化,你有没有看到什么样的变化?
许子东: 没有太大变化。因为我年年接待新生,我年年碰到18岁,在大学教书的好处,就好像走进一个大花园,你永远看到那些含苞欲放的花,那些残破的、那些凋零的、那些盛开的,你都不大看的,最吸引人的是这样。

现在网上什么都看点赞率、收视率,这只是一时的,所以有关领导放心,真正将来决定中国文化发展方向的,不是芒果卫视,不是那些大众最多人欢迎的作品,从来都不是,你必须相信这一条。经过考验也不是一个人的意志,它会留下一些经典,这些东西会决定。

偏见。不是说你经受了社会的苦难就一定深刻了,《挪威的森林》里边有什么社会苦难?男人、女人就是无穷无尽的灾难。

我推荐朱光潜的《西方美学史》。一本书上下两册,从柏拉图开始一直讲到19世纪别林斯基,除了20世纪的西方文学理论没讲,两千年的西方文学理论他梳理得最清楚,深入浅出,没人能够超越。

中国大陆民众的政治信念与政治实践的逻辑|深度|端传媒 Initium Media
这是因为,这种什么是政治,什么不应是政治的区分,没有立足于例如所谓公与私、政府与社会、国家与市场或集体与个人等实质性的政治范畴和区分,所以仅仅是指责人们误解了这些范畴也是无济于事。结论很简单,在大陆民众的语境中,所谓“政治”就是不能关心、不能做的事;非政治就可以关心、可以做的事。这种规矩,虽然不太容易直白地出现于日常话语中——因为该规矩本身就是“政治”的——但却毫无疑问地构成了一系列首要的约束,而在这种约束面前,任何显白具体的、实质性的政治信念反而是次要甚至虚无的。

民众接受“政治”的约束不是因为他们可能在先是父权制的拥护者——这个解释恰恰倒置了因果;而是因为他们已经持有了所谓政治就是这种约束——不是说政治(理念或实践)生产了或者合理化了这种约束,而是说政治本身就是这种约束——的理解,而后才为这种理解建构出了父权制等理由。

持有一个政治信念就意味着倾向于去进行相应的政治实践。
