名言五十三

The worst illiterate is the political illiterate. He hears nothing, sees nothing, takes no part in political life. He doesn’t seem to know that the cost of living, the price of beans, of flour, of rent, of medicines all depend on political decisions. He even prides himself on his political ignorance, sticks out his chest and says he hates politics. He doesn’t know, the imbecile, that from his political non-participation comes the prostitute, the abandoned child, the robber and, worst of all, corrupt officials, the lackeys of exploitive multinational corporations.

Bertolt Brecht


 

在各種無知中,最差勁的是「政治無知」。他聽而不聞、視而不見,他從不參與任何政治活動。他彷彿懵然不知,種種生活費用,如大豆價格、麵粉價格、租金、醫藥費等,全都與政治決定息息相關。他甚至對自己的政治無知引以為傲,挺起胸膛,高聲說自己討厭政治。這愚人並不知道,基於自己的政治冷感,社會出現了淫業、棄童、搶匪--更可悲的是出現了貪官污吏,他們對剝削社會的跨國企業阿諛奉承。

布萊希特
