法海最可怕,他的正义感是真诚的,尽管是在做大家不喜欢的事情。 但很难讲谁就不是法海。

说起来《左克:不处理贺卫方就是北大党委叛党》只是豆瓣上的贺卫方小组的一个转贴,本身只是一些上纲上线的内容,意义不是很大,但由这个贴在引发的讨论却是精彩异常。

毫无疑问,在老贺的小组里面发这种贴在自然没事找抽,最先到来的自然是直接的鄙视,接下来就是一串关于言论的讨论了,

“民主自由(名词)的意思如果是有人不同意这个名词就该骂该讽刺,那多不民主,多不自由啊。”
“漫骂也是一种自由,也是一种思想争鸣的方式。”“扣帽子也是一种自由。”

以上是两位豆友提出的观点,至少启发到我了。

接着,有人引用了一句很经典的台词:“不同意左克的观点,但誓死捍卫左克说话的权利!”而一位网名earlwarren的网友的一段反驳则令人印象深刻:

I believe “almost” absolute freedom of speech, with one exception — if the speech is to stir up hatred , call forcefully for unwarranted prosecution, suppression, and infringe physical harm to other people.

If 左克 is simply to criticize Professor He’s writings or speeches, that is perfectly fine with me. However I may dislike it, I will definitely defend every right of his (or hers) to express it.
But I do believe that 左克 has crossed the line here. He/She is calling the authority to use force to do physical harm to Professor He, to prosecute Professor He for what Professor He has said, and to stop Professor He from expressing himself in the future. If we defend 左克’s right in doing so, it is almost equivalent to taking away Professor He’s right to the freedom of speech and expression. If 左克 succeeds in his/her attempt, I can be sure that Professor He won’t be the last one to be harmed.

以上大致是说自由言论,没有问题,但滥用这种自由,譬如说去伤害他人或者剥夺他人说话的权利,NO!

这个帖子在后面因为老鹤亲自回复而再次引发关注,因为老鹤的北大背景以及有人提到了北大的“思想自由,兼容并包”,于是乎老鹤发言了:“从前北大的兼容并包固然是不同主张者均能够共存,同时也要求各种主张者都具有较高水准。现在的情况却是,某些人物简直毫无学术水准,一味地用一些空洞的政治口号吓唬人,或者诉诸于权势压人,这是最可悲的。

  1. It is my pleasure for your visiting here, and thx for praising.

    I totally agree with your opinion about both 左客 and Grace Wang. Apparently, for Chinese young patriots, there still a long way to go.

  2. Hello, 时雨:

    I should have visited your website earlier but it took me quite a while to get here … sorry for my tardiness.

    I enjoyed reading your articles. What a pleasant surprise to see what I wrote in Douban is cited and commented here by you.

    What happened recently to that female Chinese student at Duke is a good example what 左克 alike would like to do to people not to their liking. What the “angry youth” did to her and her family is to intimidate and shut her up, as a way to intimidate and shut-up all the others who may disagree with them.

  3. 中国需要有的是 “你说的话能好好的被人听” 的权利

    而绝对不是说话的权利。你说归你说,我不听还不是两股间的气体。

  4. Almost absolutely agree with earlwarren.

  5. 我晕……你怎么就看出来我要转型
    你过度解读了

  6. 暗示着丫要转型了?

  7. 我想任何人都有发表自己观点的权利,权势并不代表一切!
