Where is your Deutsche wisdom?

February 1 9, 2010

A friend of mine in Europe forwarded me a link to this article entitled "Celebrating Chinese New Year in Berlin" (http://tinyurl.com/yfdchnk)。Frankly speaking, after reading it, I can''''''''t believe my own eyes. I am a big fan and admirer of German people and culture, I have been to Germany twice (to Frankford and Munich), I like the works of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven the most, and I often brag to my friends about my being born on the same day as Ludwig von Beethoven. In my classroom in American universities, German craft, German products, and German engineering, as an embodiment of Deutsche wisdom, are often the highlight of my International Marketing class.

The first time I heard about Deutsche Welle (DW) was when I read the report about a Chinese lady, last name Zhang, being a Communist Chinese agent in the Chinese Division of DW. This incident at the Chinese division of DW created a lasting impact on independent scholars and intellectuals worldwide. It is difficult for anyone to comprehend that the decedents of Bach and Beethoven, whose works are so divinely inspired and full of compassion and energy, could become so muddle-headed upon such an event where the right and wrong is so clearly delineated. The Zhang incident at DW could be thought of as an isolated event, but what is shown in this report about Chinese New Year celebration in Berlin points to a terrible trend, a trend that sends chills down the spins of freedom loving people all over the world.

I trust that German people, who know very well the distinction between East and West Germanys, are also keenly aware of the destruction of Communist rule on orthodox cultures and human nature. And there is no doubt Germans would love the traditional culture of China, but not the deviated culture of the Communist party. So when a regime, known for its "destroying the Confucianism" campaign, now wanting to open a Confucius Institute in Germany; and a regime that initiated the "Great Cultural Revolution", now wanting to act as the direct descendent of traditional Chinese culture and host some so called new year celebrations, are you using your clear minded Deutsche wisdom on this matter, my German friends?

This report by Adrienne Woltersdorf and Han Mingfang reminds me of the work of a rookie journalist of the Xinhua News Agency, a Chinese Communist mouthpiece, and never the insights of a free, independent journalist and intellectual of the West. Do you honestly believe that Chinese Embassy in Germany and its cultural affiliates, once the culprit of despising and destroying traditional Chinese culture so much, would now spend hundreds of thousands, even millions of Euros, just to "celebrate" Chinese New Year?

If the so called "celebration" is held inside the Chinese Embassy in Berlin, no one would really pay any attention. The fact that this so called “celebration”, full of Chinese Communist’s propaganda agenda and evil motives, is being held at the Rotes Rathaus, Red Town Hall of Berlin, this would be a shame to the Deutsche people. When then U. S. President John F. Kennedy told Germans that he was a Berliner, he brought with him the blessing of people of the free world. How could the Chinese officials, with blood of Chinese land owners, entrepreneurs, June 4th students, Falun Gong practitioners, and being the murder of organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China, become the honored guests of this sacred hall?

The condescending Chinese Communist officials in the Red Town Hall of Berlin are a reflection of the arrogance of former Communist leaders of East Germany. For current officials of unified, democratic Germany, would you remember the sufferings of the 200 million peasant immigrant workers in China who can''''''''t call the city where they work home, tens of millions of Falun Gong practitioners who are being persecuted, millions of underground Chinese Christians who can''''''''t practice their faith in public, and the prisoners of conscience such as Gao Zhisheng and Hu Jia, when you sip champagne and exchange toast with the Communist officials?

I am glad you like Chinese food: egg rolls, red bean paste buns, and sweet and sour pork rib. But as journalist you should also realize, the delicatessens would taste much better if there are no shadows of slave workers in Chinese labor camps in preparing those food item and utensils.

Happy Year of the Tiger!

德意志的智慧何在?
 

欧洲的一位朋友日前转来“柏林欢度中国年”这篇文章的链接(http://tinyurl.com/yfdchnk)。坦率的说,读完之后,我简直难以相信 自己的眼睛。笔者是德国人民和德国文化的欣赏和爱好者,曾两次去过德国(法兰克福和慕尼黑),最喜欢莫扎特、巴哈和贝多芬的作品,甚至以与贝多芬同一天过 生日为荣,常常向朋友们吹嘘这一点。在美国大学的课堂上,德国产品和德国制造的工艺水平,体现着德意志民族的智慧,也是国际营销课程的亮点。

第 一次听到德国之声,还是上一次关于德国之声电台中文部一位张姓女士作为中共代理人的报道。就是这个事件,让德国之声的中文节目成为全球独立知识分子心中的 遗憾。让人不解的是,音乐透露着神性的巴哈、作品流露出热情如火的贝多芬的后人,会在这样明确的是非问题之前,变得这么迷茫、这么糊里糊涂?如果说,德国 之声中文部张某的事件还是一个个案,“柏林欢度中国年”这篇报道所披露的,就是一个趋向,一个令自由世界的人民不寒而栗的可怕趋势。

我相信洞悉东德和西德差别的德国民众,应该知道共产党的统治对任何正统文化和人性的摧残。无疑,德国人民喜欢中国传统文化、不喜欢党文化和专制政权 的变异文化。所以,当一个曾经全力“打倒孔家店”的政权到德国去开设“孔子学院”,当一个发动了“文化大革命”的政府,开始以中华传统文化的传人自居、主 办什么新年晚会的时候,天真而善良的德国人民,你们善用了你们民族冷静而明察的智慧了吗?

作为德国之声的记者,你们的这篇报道,坦率的讲,让我联想起中共的喉舌、新华社见习记者的作品,而完全没有西方自由社会独立知识分子所应有的、独到 而深刻的见解。你们真的会天真的认为,中国驻德文化机构以及大使馆,会花上几十万、上百万欧元,就是为了庆祝中国新年、那个他们曾经那么鄙视、排斥、甚至 要摧毁的文化传统?

如果中共自己的狂欢是在中国驻柏林的大使馆内举行,人们也毋须在意。中国大使馆带着中国共产党罪恶目的和宣传议程的所谓“新春庆贺” ,安排在德国首都柏林红色市政大厅里举行,这是德意志民族的耻辱。美国总统肯尼迪告诉德国人他是柏林人的时候,他带去的是自由世界人们的祝福。而屠杀了地 主、资本家,镇压了六四学生,正在迫害法轮功修炼者并活体摘取法轮功学员器官的,血债累累的中共当权者,焉能成为柏林市政大厅的座上客?

在柏林红色市政厅的大厅里,中共官员的颟顸,其实是当年东柏林共产党官员骄横跋扈的翻版;而统一的、民主的德国官员,与中共官员干杯之时,为什么居 然忘记了两亿迁徙的中国农民工、几千万被迫害的法轮功修炼者、几百万地下基督教教徒,高智晟、胡佳等良心犯及其家人、此时此刻,正在中国受到的苦难?

我很欣慰的看到您喜欢中国的美食:春卷、红豆沙包和排骨。但作为德国之声记者也应该知道,如果那一粒粒红豆、一双双一次性竹筷子后面如果没有中共劳改营奴工的身影,欣赏佳肴的时候,味道会更加鲜美。

 

祝您虎年快乐。

  人类的社会可分以下几种类型:   1.愚民暴政卑恶人类社会(卑恶人对善良人专政);   2.自由民主群氓人类社会(多数人对少数人专政);   3.真善美恒善良人类社会(善良人对卑恶人专政)。   当代的马克思共产主义的国家,都是史无前例的最最卑恶的人类社会。   当代西方民主自由的国家则属于群氓人类社会。这种国家因其国民的不同而有不同的性质,因此很明显它不能保证这种社会的国家是善良的,更不能希望它是最好的社会。虽然如此,但它若与第1种的愚民暴政卑恶人类社会相比还是好的,甚至是好的很多。只是不管好的再多,它们之间只能是一种比较的好,而不是绝对的、善恶对立的好。   至于上述的第3种真善美恒善良人类社会,那才是绝对的至善至美最好的人类社会。可惜人类几千年来竟未找到这种社会,更可悲的是这种社会就在眼前时,却无人理会!这种社会其实十几年前就有人提出,并且现今通过网络已传遍世界各地,它就是《星光宣言》和《星光会章程》中所指的真善美恒极乐永生通往现实的人间天堂星光之路的社会。   “德国之声”能藏有张丹红这个极端龌龊的为所欲为的专为杀人不眨眼的共产党宣叫的卑恶分子,这是“德国之声”的莫大耻辱。可是更让人震惊的是,“德国之声”竟然不以为耻反以为荣的为这个卑恶分子撑腰包庇,这就又极其明显的说明了整个德国竟然孳生出了“德国之声”这样一个用维护民主自由的德国人民血汗税金供养起来的专为共匪服务的组织!这等的事件能不让人震惊、能不让人毛骨悚然吗!对此不是说检讨检讨就算了事,也不是让张丹红辞职了之,更进一步也不是“德国之声”的那个包庇张丹红的头头(德国之声负责人昂斯噶尔?布格霍夫等)道歉道歉就行啦,甚至把那个或那些在“德国之声”中暗藏的共匪奸细头头都开除了也不能算完!而应该一查到底,要把所有造成这种极端邪异事件和其根源找出来,把与共产党的暗中勾结不弄个水落石出决不罢休!不这样一是便宜了这帮共匪的狗奴材,再是更重要的无法防止今后不再发生这等可怕事件。这不是庸人自扰,更不是耸人听闻,回忆历史,早在前东西德对持时期,一次西德总理的后选人竟是东德潜入的特务!这都极其明显的说明西德和现今德国的体制存在着严重的缺陷。这虽说是上面本文一开头说过的现今自由民主国家只不过是个并不完善的群氓社会,在没有进入人类更完善的星光社会前,就应时刻警惕邪恶势力和卑恶之徒的利用这个制度的缺陷乘虚而入,癌化群众,篡夺政权,酿成大祸,甚至像纳粹
