陈纯:举报、粉红狂潮,与体制外的极权主义|逃犯条例|深度|端传媒 Initium Media

在后天安门时代,国家对于日益增长的超越性精神需求有一个妥协,它默许各种“整全性学说”在不危害主流价值(“爱国”、“发展”和“稳定”)的前提下默默存在——自由主义、基督教、儒家、女权主义……但2012年以后,这种默契就被打破了。当局惧怕这个国家的人民通过一种和它的组织和宣传无关的方式联结起来,所以对于一切整全性学说一概打压,包括原初意义上的马克思主义。也就是说,当局不让任何一种整全性学说获得真正意义上的传播,而它自己也不能提供一套有吸引力的整全性学说(如古代的儒家和毛时代的共产主义),这相当于将所有国民硬生生抛入一种“强制性的虚无主义”之中。而稳定的“强制的虚无主义”不是一种可以长久维持的状态,它要么走向一种健康的“合理多元主义”,要么走向一种“虚无主义狂热”。走向前者就要允许各种整全性学说和各种组织自由发展,很显然,这条路现在是根本不可能的。

让人感到恐惧的是,就我和朋友最近的遭遇来看,“废青”的外延已经在扩大,包括了所有同情香港示威者的大陆人,进一步地,所有曾经对中国共产党提出过批评的大陆公民,也要成为打击对象。

Why has England lost its medieval taste for violence? | Aeon Essays
England’s experience seems to have been mirrored by developments in Scandinavia, what is now the Netherlands and Belgium, and northern Germany, suggesting that the decline of homicide in England was part of a northern-European phenomenon whose causes remain in large measure conjectural, but that must be related to broad cultural shifts interacting with processes of state formation.

the 600th anniversary of the affair in 1955, when the University of Oxford granted the city’s mayor an honorary degree, and Oxford made the vice chancellor of the university an honorary freeman of the city. It was perhaps fitting that this act of closure for an episode of medieval mayhem came in the 1950s, now widely regarded as the most stable and non-violent decade in recent British history.

« Les jeux vidéo violents augmentent les conduites agressives »
les jeux vidéo violents ont une incidence sur les affects, les pensées et les conduites ­agressifs, et diminuent les conduites coopératives. Sur la base de résultats aussi clairs, plusieurs instances internationales, dont l’Académie américaine de pédiatrie, reconnaissent ces effets et contestent directement la thèse de la ­catharsis, selon laquelle des moments vidéoludiques soignent la violence et ­« purgent » l’agressivité.

La réalité virtuelle mobilise des processus psychologiques et sociaux qui ont des liens avec la réalité tout court. Plusieurs expé­riences classiques en psychologie ont été ­reproduites en contexte de réalité virtuelle. Par exemple, si vous effectuez dans un univers virtuel une tâche difficile et qu’un avatar vous observe, votre performance se ­dégrade, comme dans le monde réel.

Skepticblog » The Colorado Massacre, Gun Control, and the Law of Large Numbers
A large-numbers analysis allows us to understand on a societal-level scale why such events happen randomly and without any specific cause common to all (drugs, gangs, bullying, depression, psychopathy, psychosis, violent video games, and the like). History and population demographics for rates of mass murder show that Aurora-size events are going to happen again and again and again, and there is no way to predict who is going to do it, where, or when.

When the Second Amendment was written stating that citizens have a right to “keep and bear arms,” rifles took over a minute to load one bullet at a time. The most crazed 18th century American could not possibly commit mass murder because no WMMs existed at the time.

四大名著死亡人数统计
每个人的死亡对他的家庭而言都是无比巨大的悲剧。悲剧的数量,决策者拍拍脑门就能决定:一拍脑门,血流成河;再一拍,伏尸百万;三一拍,非科学计数法不能胜计也。这些非科学计数法不能胜计也的悲剧,被你我的祖辈们精心地制造出来,互相施加到同胞的身上;后人品读历史,往往大喝一声“杀得好”,抚掌称快。 http://www.instapaper.com/read/312402883
