回应赵皓阳:知识错漏为你补上,品性问题还需你自己努力|广场|端传媒 Initium Media

最近名为赵皓阳的作者写了一篇题为《香港这座城市还有救吗》的文章,在中国内地广为流传。作者在浸会大学读过一年制的研究生,他形容香港学生“幼稚病”、跟“用爱发电”的台湾人一样“蠢”,批评香港学生会“假民主”,港生不懂殖民历史,香港基础教育质量比不过内地,学生质素“不足以在一个大市场中与大陆青年竞争”。同时,他认为香港社运是民众被蛊惑,“受西方价值观冲击”,上街游行可以获得“虚伪的满足感”,其实是用肉身在供养资本家。他表示,除了他,香港无人意识到地产问题才是香港真正的威胁。

从文章看来,赵的知识体系用一句话就可以概括:“所有问题的根源都是资本家吸血普通人”。如果要再复杂一点,那么不是“教育出了问题”,就是“年轻人太蠢被煽惑”,三板斧来回使用。而政治体制在他眼中有如不存在。

赵先生此文的问题不是他知识太匮乏,而是品性太差。用他的话来讲,他不是“蠢”,是“坏”。这种“坏”意在撩拨内地已有的“仇港”情绪,用虚构故事和错误事实制造中港矛盾。不仅如此,赵还在文章里流露出对精英阶层深深的向往(尽管他本人并不在列),和对普通人追求更好生活的鄙夷。这种“社会达尔文主义”思想的传播,从源头上试图抹去普通人抗争及争取权利的合法性。用赵先生的理论来讲,他所做的事,是在替权力和资本压榨普通人。知识问题我们可以为他补上,品性问题还需要他自己努力。

1985至1988年是台湾反公害运动和环保运动快速兴起的时期,当时的环保和反核人士中也有不少是民主运动的支持者,因此环保及反核力量也被视为对威权政府的挑战。这些挑战国民党的“党外人士”在1986年组成“民进党”,环保和反核是为党纲。

台湾公民社会不断针对能源转型进行不同论述、攻防,并无台湾人如同赵文所述“相信真的用爱可以发电”。当赵文指出,“更惊讶的是,这在台湾还真普遍有人买账,还真很多人觉得用爱发电这个概念好”时,其实台湾读者也很惊讶赵文有这种惊讶——这样理解一个口号,不是曲解,就是愚痴。

香港地产霸权的问题来自殖民时代的政商结构,而中国在香港回归后仍拒绝改革香港的殖民地式官商勾结政经结构,特首选举制度、立法会中的“功能组别”的设计,都是维持这一结构的具体表现,商界向来偏建制、支持政府决策,垄断的庞大资本力量与政治权力结合,成为最难打破的天花板。

中国恰恰是香港“双轨”土地制度的学习者。和土地私有的地方不同,香港土地所有权归政府所有(港英遗留)。港府通过售卖​​土地在规定期限的“使用权”予土地开发者或使用者,也就是内地所熟悉的“卖地”。

这是公民与政府之间一个复杂、多元的博弈过程。市民运用了民间宣传、网络联署、和平游行示威、非暴力不合作运动等多元方式,一起向政府表达民意。当然,香港相对成熟的公民社会也助力不少,这次不少教会和牧师、专业组织、行业协会也参与其中,人们尝试用各种新的方式进行连结。这不是乱,是人们在互动、连结、组织、发声。

如果有人看到这里还是不屑一顾,大概是觉得这些绝食行动看上去都没有“出事”,绝食者依然“安全”。这么想的人,请扪心自问自己的良心和人性去了哪里。牺牲当然不是一件必然的事,任何人也没有资格要求别人牺牲,抗争是表达反对观点的形式,而不是满足变态看客的一场好戏。

从写法上,这篇文章确实具备如今内地舆论场上常见的爆款文特点:一个耸动的标题、“我有一个朋友”式难辨真伪的举例、东拼西凑的数据和口语化的语言。这些都和备受争议的“咪蒙体”如出一辙。文章的文字粗劣,经不起推敲,但能在第一时间把握住大众的情绪。

内地大众本来就因为信息差无法了解到香港反送中游行的全貌,相关新闻只能在互联网的角落中流窜,在这样的时机,突然出现一篇洋洋洒洒几千字分析香港局势的文章,且作者传递的观点其实与自己曾接触过的观点相似,颇能给人一种恍然大悟之感,自然在墙内赚得了顶级流量。

赵先生的思路既把经济发展列为重中之重,又堵死普通人选举、游行的权利,这与中国执政者的思路如出一辙。1989年之后,“发展才是硬道理”成为被宣扬的价值观,经济发展成了政权合法性的来源。按照这个思路,经济发展最后落到普通人身上,只剩下一个选项:努力赚钱。

努力赚钱当然没有错,但背景是赵先生所讲的房地产资本家吸血,这意味著如赵先生所说年轻人(无论是香港的还是内地的)再努力也买不起房。那么努力赚钱为的是什么呢,为的是给资本家打工。赵先生的这套思路和价值观绕了一圈,就是为了忽悠普通人。

Be careful with social media — employers are watching
The role social media plays in HR matters raises even bigger questions. Facebook and Twitter have been open for 11 years. That means a whole generation, now graduating into the workplace, has its entire history online forever, as preserved as an insect in amber.

The digital realm covers millennials’ exact geographical locations, their views, relationship history, consuming preferences, their social and work life. I am told that a determined stalker could discover how you vote, an approximation of your medical history, your financial and legal trails and much more.

The ‘time machine’ reconstructing ancient Venice’s social networks
Venice is the perfect city for the experiment because of its wealth of historically important, well-ordered documentation. It was founded in the fifth century AD by citizens of the Roman empire escaping barbarian invaders from the north. Its inhospitable lagoons provided much-needed protection, and its location at the north end of the Adriatic Sea also had strategic advantages. It soon became the most important trading post between Western Europe and the east, bringing it riches and power.

Yuval Noah Harari challenges the future according to Facebook
If Facebook really attempts to formulate a set of universal values, it will enjoy one big advantage over many previous institutions that attempted to do so. Unlike the early Christian church, or Lenin’s Communist party, Facebook is a truly global network with close to 2bn users. Yet Facebook also suffers from one big disadvantage. Unlike the Christian church and the Communist party, it is an online network.

Physical communities have a depth that virtual communities cannot hope to match, at least not in the near future.

People estranged from their bodies, senses and physical environment are likely to feel alienated and disoriented.

People feel bound by elections only when they share a basic bond with most other voters. The ancient tribes along the Yellow River lacked a common set of values, and consequently they were unable to unite through a peaceful democratic process. It took a lot of violence to hammer them together into a single empire.

If something exciting happens, the gut instinct of Facebook true-believers is to draw their smartphones, take a picture, post it online, and wait for the “likes”. In the process they hardly pay attention to what they actually feel. Indeed, what they feel is increasingly determined by the online reactions rather than by the actual experience.

(A blueprint of such an alternative model has actually been suggested recently by Tristan Harris, an ex-Googler and tech-philosopher who came up with a new metric of “time well spent”.)

How Facebook Warps Our Worlds
The Internet isn’t rigged to give us right or left, conservative or liberal — at least not until we rig it that way. It’s designed to give us more of the same, whatever that same is: one sustained note from the vast and varied music that it holds, one redundant fragrance from a garden of infinite possibility.

What our digital social networks say about us - FT.com

our social attention is not distributed evenly among those 150 confidantes but instead layered like an onion; five closest contacts in the innermost layer, then 10 in the next, followed by 35 and 100.

On average, those with four layers had: four closest confidantes, often relatives, whom they dialled most frequently; 11 in the next layer; then 30 and 129.

For those with five layers, the number of friends was split slightly differently: three closest contacts; then 7, 18, 43 and 134.

One idea to emerge from the study is that individuals with four layers might be introverts while those with five are extroverts.

Seeds of technology - FT.com
The screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, rid of the pious sentimentality that blighted his TV series The West Wing, doesn’t put a foot wrong here. His writing is pacy, condensed, and laugh-out-loud funny. He sees Zuckerberg as 95 per cent anti-hero and 5 per cent tragic hero. That dilution masterfully brings the film to its morally complex conclusion. As the credits roll, you are left wondering what to think. That, for a big-budget Hollywood film, is miraculous in itself.

The artist, who treads a fine line between reaching accommodation with and demanding reform from the Chinese authorities, is using Twitter to encourage mass participation in the project. “Sunflower Seeds” is, on the face of it, far from a political work. Yet it encourages expression, and active engagement on a scale that would have been inconceivable just a decade ago. This, too, feels like a work from the 21st century. It is multi-layered, revelling in its confluence of material and conceptual significance, and it feels like it can make things happen.

Fortunes of Facebook May Hinge on Searches
Amazon has steadily improved how users find things to buy. Twitter has continuously tweaked how its users find news that interests them. Apple tried to upend the traditional search engines by assigning a robot named Siri to help iPhone owners answer their questions Facebook, more than any other platform, has a singular and huge data collection; its users gush about what they like and listen to, whom they admire, where they jog, even what they eat. To leverage some of this information. Facebook has added the tab “nearby” to help users find businesses in proximity. The company has also rolled out a jobs board, to help users search for employment, in an apparent bid to compete with LinkedIn. The largest share of online advertising revenue overall comes from search, which is why Google’s earnings remain nearly 10 times Facebook’s. “When there is too much information, there is high value in search, navigation and discovery,”

人人网(Renren)正在受到冷落。自去年5月在纽约上市以来,这家中国社交网站的股价已跌去近三分之二。上周,人人网让投资者绷紧了神经,因为其业绩报告显示去年第四季度的运营亏损达1500万至1700万美元,几乎是第三季度亏损的三倍。人人网还将对上市前完成的一起收购做300万美元的减记处理。对这家可能是全球最大互联网市场中最大的社交网站的投资者来说,这些都是不利的消息。

柏拉图版Facebook
如果有个水平比你更高的人恰巧看到甚至跟踪了你的所有电子足迹,对你的生活事无巨细地尽览眼底,他必将比你更了解真实的你自己。老于世故者只需要30秒就能对刚刚见到的人做出判断,因为他从无数细节——表情、谈吐、眼神、着装、姿势——获得信息,然后通过自己的经验快速处理这些信息并做出判断。记住,判断始终与信息紧密相关,而Facebook和Twitter正是把一个人的全部信息记录并释放的工具。
