“被遗忘的战争” - 荐读 - FT中文网
http://www.instapaper.com/read/400467816
在二战中丧生的中国人可能达到1500万,接近英美两国二战死亡总数的20倍。然而几十年来,作为执政党的中国共产党员很少提及这次战争。毕竟,这不是专属于他们的战争。国民党领导人蒋介石当时是中国的主要指挥官。米特写道,中共当时是蒋介石的“小伙伴”。实际上,按照米特的说法,毛泽东是个相对次要的人物,当时他躲在延安的穷乡僻壤里,静观战局变化。中共的部队偶尔会与日军作战,不过在抗战期间,他们还不时与国民党军打起来。

1949年,毛泽东打赢了中国内战并把蒋介石赶到了台湾,此后他并不愿过多谈及手下败将国民党军在抗战中的壮举。正是出于这个原因,在毛泽东统治时代,日本人对国民党治下的重庆进行的长期轰炸(相当于中国版的伦敦闪击战(the London Blitz))仅仅被那些曾经历过的人们默默地记在心里。

毛泽东时代过后,中共大张旗鼓地重提抗日战争的话题,在很大程度上是因为需要新的意识形态来取代共产主义。在1989年天安门事件之后,这一需求变得非常迫切。米特在书中告诉我,独裁统治下“可以做到两件事。其一是把经济治理得极其出色,另一件事就是让人们体会到民族自豪感。民族主义是一种极有影响力的手段。”南斯拉夫与中国的情况相类似,斯洛博丹•米洛舍维奇(Slobodan Milosevic)也用民族主义取代了共产主义。

方滨兴的墙内墙外
一位北邮受访者则从另一个角度看待国家的存在,和很多方滨兴的支持者一样,他在“棱镜”事件中惊讶地获得了一些启发:“中国很多事做在表面上,美国做在背地里,他们很多时候技术更先进,互联网话语权还是掌握在西方手里。哪一天中国话语强势了,可能就得他们建墙了。”

任可正在设计一套可信标准。这与方滨兴的安全理论有些不同。安全理论认为外界黑暗不可知,防御必不可少;而任可的可信理论则认为可以创造一个空间,在其中大家都是可以互信的,发现有了“坏人”就扔出去。
在任可看来,可信是安全的终极目标——如果大家都可信了,还要安全干吗?
据说,方滨兴基本认同这一观点,但补充说,可信的外围还是安全,可信只存在于一定范围内。

China’s motorways: Get your kicks on Route G6 | The Economist
http://article.yeeyan.org/view/358896/342559
It is a slow toil through much of Inner Mongolia, as Zheng Jie found when she drove along the G6 with her husband and father on their way back from Tibet in October. Ms Zheng, who runs a headhunting firm in Beijing, laments what she calls a “blank space” of road-themed music to accompany China’s fast-developing car culture. There is no equivalent yet of Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” to get drivers in the mood (she and her passengers spent much of their journey listening to syrupy new-age music). There is sadly little relief on the G6 in the form of what might be called highway haiku: garbled English translations on motorway signs that in their highest form have a poetic quality matching the rhythm of the road. Only one example worthy of the description offers itself (albeit hypnotically repeated) on the G6 Tibet-bound Rain or snowy day Bridge, slow driving

Japan’s 3/11
When the time came for Japan to stop in remembrance, there was not one moment of silence but two: The first, at 2:46 P.M., when the biggest quake in the nation’s history struck one year ago. And then the second: In tiny towns up and down the coast, they paused again, exactly thirty-three minutes later, to mark the moment when the tsunami arrived.

In Sendai, the city launched fireworks—twenty thousand of them—one for each person who died.

Officially, the earthquake and wall of water that ran across Japan’s northeast coast killed nearly sixteen thousand people. Another three thousand three hundred are still classified as “unaccounted for.” To this day, members of the police and coast guard are still engaged in a kind of pantomime, combing the rivers and shorelines for bodies that nobody but the families imagine can be found.

the psychological effects are vast and obvious —an “anguished uncertainty” in the words of physicist and historian Spencer Weart. The combined effects of stigma, dislocation, and fear of the unknown are “a recipe for social isolation, anxiety, depression, psychosomatic medical problems, reckless behavior, even suicide.”

南方周末:【高铁之乱】“不可能”的事故
“铁道系统内部核心人士介绍,“7·23”动车追尾事故原因初步查明,只待有关方面权威发布。”

“信号系统地面设备本身的设计问题使雷击造成的故障升级,红码发成绿码,错误发出绿灯信号,引导D301前行追尾。”

“从23日20:25开始,一系列似乎合理的复杂调度实际上把两辆动车放到了危险的悬崖边,而信号设备的故障最终把两车推下了悬崖。”

“以邻为壑”
再有三天,日本这场史无前例的连环灾害将满月,但在看到几丝若隐若现的曙光后,事态似又在向更坏的方向坠落。《北京日报》今天发表头条评论,分析邻国“核事故应对乏力”的根源:“在政治为资本服务的制度设计下,人们在核危机面前都难以看到民选政府对企业强有力的督促、监管、问责,也看不到对民众公开透明、极度负责的态度,政治制度在财阀资本面前的低眉顺眼可见一斑。”
