Life Is Enjoyable

Life is enjoyable because beautiful flowers will be flourishing everywhere again after the harsh season of winter.

Life is enjoyable when you look up and see birds hovering over here and there freely.

Life is enjoyable because the sun will rise from the horizon again everyday as dark night passes.

Life is enjoyable as you are listening to great composer's fascinating passages of music.

Life is enjoyable because you can always recover from the pain of ailments or illnesses.

Life is enjoyable as you are absorbed in reading a great work of literature such as "Dream of the Red Chamber" or "War and Peace".

Life is enjoyable because you believe that justice must prevail against wickedness.

Life is enjoyable because happiness is not judged by the superficial wealth but by spiritual satisfaction.

Life is enjoyable when you are loved by people that you love.

Life is enjoyable when you are esteemed by young people such as your students.

Life is enjoyable after you have conquered a hill or a mountain, or something that seems impossible.

Life is enjoyable because you have faith that difficulties can always be overcome if one is determined to strive all the way.

life is enjoyable because you realize life is only transient compared with the existence of the universe.

Life must be enjoyable when this eventually becomes your absolute and unshakable faith.

我愛讀「明報社評」

一份報章的社評或社論許多時代表了報章對一件事的立場和見解,社評要寫得好最重要是持平和客觀,我認為明報的社評基本上都能達到這個要求。社評不易寫,因為一定要對事件的前因後果有全盤的了解,這可能不只是三數天的資料的積累,而是以年計甚至是對事件數十年觀察的結果。學習寫文章的學生一般都認為議論文最難寫,而多研讀社評是學習寫議論文的最佳途徑。

我愛讀「明報社評」,因為它基本上擁有我上述好社評的特質。明報社評主要議論三方面的內容:本地、中國(包括台灣)和國際。它的中國和國際社評我都經常閱讀,評論本地新聞的社評則當有特別需要時才較有興趣閱讀,因為閱讀國際或中國新聞的社評對深入了解環球時局不可或缺;本地新聞接觸渠道較多和容易,對事件的前因後果自然已經有一定程度的掌握,亦較容易產生自己的觀點,不用再靠閱讀報章社評的分析才會對事件的真像得到全面的認識和理解。明報的國際新聞社評固然寫得透徹精闢,中國新聞社評亦能做到嚴謹和中肯。明報的中國新聞社評有一個特點,就是本著愛國家、愛中華民族的立場而寫,對中國能真正進步發展往往有恨鐵不成鋼的心腸,應讚便讚,要責便責,不刻意逢迎,也不逢中必反!

我不間斷地每天都閱讀明報和文匯報,已經有四十多年歷史了!可以說我對明報和文匯報的作風和立場都瞭如指掌。然而,後者的社評我卻很少閱讀,主要是因為每次我都先讀明報,讀畢後才開始讀文匯報,既然已經讀過明報的社評了,對文匯報的社評便減少了閱讀的興趣了。偶然我仍是會讀讀文匯報的社評的,整體上我感到文匯報社評的議事水平不及明報社評。

說過明報社評,不如都說說我對明報其他專欄時事評論員和副刊專欄作家的文章的印象,我認為明報不少評論員和專欄作家的文章都缺乏明報社評那份客觀、持平和包容的特質和風格,許多時我有這個疑問:一份報章社評的立場不是代表了整份報章所宣示的立場嗎?明報不同版面立場分歧的出現,可能是因為明報不同版面有不同的專責話事人,他們都有獨立自主的管理權力而造成。我覺得明報其他版面普遍都有「無差別地」反政府、反中國的傾向,不少副刊專欄作家和時事評論員的文章的表現亦如是。他們許多時都把自由、民主、人權、法治等理念掛在口邊,都標榜自己站立於道德最高地而無差別地反政府、反中國。然而,他們的許多言論都輕易暴露了他們其實有多偽善!他們常說香港和中國政府的施政是暴政,警察的執法是警暴,可是,他們對美國政府的不人道所為和警察對示威群眾的強力鎮壓卻置若罔聞,對香港黑暴的所作所為從無隻言片語加以譴責。他們文章的觀點許多時都是立場先行,充滿偏見和歪理。今天我於明報觀點版赫然看到這樣的標題:《武漢肺炎全民檢測之我見》(作者黃任匡),內容亦多次用「武漢肺炎」的稱呼。世衛不是早已清楚將是次大流行的病毒正名為COVID-19、中文稱之為「新冠肺炎」(或「新冠病毒」)嗎?不是說不要使用含有地區偏見的名字嗎?為甚麼該文作者仍如此固執偏要使用「武漢肺炎」的名稱呢?他明顯是立場先行!他的評論會公正持平嗎?會不帶仇恨和偏見嗎?這樣的例子在每天明報的不同版面和角落隨時可以找到!
