星屑醫生 | 8th Apr 2008, 00:20 AM | 站遠點來看中國

翻看黃Wyman 的【俗】,當中有一篇十分有趣。

有一天他煎雙蛋,覺得自己實在煎得很好,就忽發奇想,為甚麼奧運項目沒有煎雙蛋比賽的呢?只不過因為世上某些才能忽然特別值錢,也特別受到敬重吧了。復又再想,假如鬥彈鼻屎彈得準可以贏個世界冠軍來,那這世界就認真有趣了。

其實奧運是幹甚麼的?甚麼才是奧運精神?

 

奧運原來只不過是希臘的祭神典禮吧了。那時希臘四分五裂內戰連年,不過對希臘人來說,討好奧林帕斯山上的一眾神明,特別是宙斯,始終最為重要。因此到時到候各部族都會暫時乖乖停火,在神明面前專心以體育競賽比拼,便造就所謂「奧運精神是宣揚和平」的意義。

其實只在嘴裡說「和平」,明明仍是部族間的相鬥競逐,不過就肯按照規則來爭勝吧。競逐的背後始終是要分出高下,勝者為王,敗者則為寇。及至希臘給羅馬吞併,後來出現的基督教把奧林帕斯眾神都推倒了,也就禁制這種祭神風俗足足有 2000年之久。直至 1894年現代奧運會再次舉行,那管自太陽處採得來的聖火才又再次給高舉起來。

祭神的意義自然就給現代人摒棄了,因此才單單高聲喊說,現代奧林匹克運動會全為著秉承遠古奧運那「宣揚和平」的精神來舉行。

然 而我懷疑這「宣揚和平」的精神,藉著這樣的大型體育活動來做究竟有多大作用。1894年以後,兩次世界大戰還是照樣發生,還有韓戰、越戰、波斯灣戰爭、九一一... 根本美國攻不攻打伊拉克、北韓發不發展核武、日本上不上釣魚台興建燈塔、甚 至台海會不會宣戰等,即使一個月辦一次奧運也不會影響得到這些分毫。因此所謂以舉辦奧運來「宣揚和平」,只不過是擺個姿態喊口號,是地球人「攪個 party」來氹自己開心的做法而已。

說到底,奧運對主辦城市來說,還是經濟效益至為重要。而對中國人的額外意義,就是終於能與先進國家睇齊、趕上世界一線和洗脫百年恥辱等。於是民族自豪與自卑感相互交錯,加上經濟得益的催化,才形成現在那無論如何都要把奧運搞得好好睇睇的決心。這樣看來,奧運的意義其實未如想像般大,倒是要耗費大量人力物力來興建的白象了。

與幾千年前的希臘相比,世界時局只有更動盪,飢荒、天災、種族逼害、不平等、人權問題等等無日無之。你看,比賽過後,古希臘各部族還是爭戰不休,及至後來終於被羅馬吞併,奧運也從此失落千年了。現在我們的世界又如何,若說奧運精神「宣揚和平」真如口裡所說是最重要的理念的話,豈不是更應支持身體力行直接推動和平的行動?花注意力和資源正正經經面對世界的真實問題,豈不比贏來幾多個獎牌對人類來說更重要嗎

實在與人權自由等大是大非相比,一個比賽算得甚麼?只狠狠地比一次賽,極其量讓全世界人的血氣往頭上衝一衝,然而散會後這些問題仍舊縈繞不散。看著五環旗,你要明白它的真意義:那就是和平、人權、自由、平等,與不分國家種族的世界融和。

" 於是就有人說,奧運不應牽涉政治,因為這要宣揚世界和平。然則最能決定這世界是否和平,卻是政治了。"

從來就不相信甚麽政治跟運動分開。所謂政治,就是眾人之事,有人的地方就有政治,體育運動絕對跟政治有關。所謂奥運,說穿了只不過是各國比併實力要面子的地方,要不然某些國家亦不用重金酬賞奪金牌的運動員啦。
更差是些人嘴裏說政治跟運動分開,但主持儀式兼出風頭的卻是政治人物,香港就有煲呔和振英之流走去傳聖火,多少本地運動員想參與都不得要領。
政治跟運動分開, 哈哈哈 !!!

我自己倒無羞愧的感覺,反而會思考,如何在使中國人真正向前進步:重整道德禮貌,確立民主自由,注重環保,社會公義,體恤老弱,視人命寶貴,重是人之為人的權利。到這些都得到了,我們就不必為稱為中國人而羞愧,才真正值得驕傲。

這我倒沒想過,但也會覺得專登要上上珠穆朗瑪峰,難免給人站在世界之巔的感覺。這就是中國人千年來的所謂驕傲:為處世界中心的國家!四境都是野蠻人,都應來向天子跪拜。

願聞你說多一點,認為大陸在何事上你是不能認同的。其實香港這標籤也好不多少,也正在邊緣化和給淡化。倒把自己看為新一代地球人最好, 民族國家的觀念其實是如可狹小。

我也不知,反正,這聖火既然定了要這樣大事鋪張地傳,就預了面對抗議。可能是站的立場問題,你要傳就要安全地傳到底;要搶的話,也要努力搶。其實也是競賽,不傷人命的話,也算得合乎體育精神。

煎雙蛋,鬥彈鼻屎彈得準, 哈哈哈, 很有創意的奧運項目, 我覺得這類奧運項目來得更有意義, 起碼大家笑一笑, 世界就更加美妙o
正是,人心在這種搞個party 式的做法,和喊口號式的做法面前,豈不是更容易變得麻木?
焦點更難對得準。
於是就有人說,奧運不應牽涉政治,因為這要宣揚世界和平。然則最能決定這世界是否和平,卻是政治了。

China has developed very rapidly over the past twenty years but people's mentality hasn't changed much! Either they are still very 鄉下心態 or 暴發戶; but more often than not, they are both! And those mainland Chinese tend to brag about how developed China is now blah blah blah...and criticize us for not knowing China enough/for being unpatriotic, etc. But if given a chance, most of them would flock overseas and never return home! What I've always wanted to ask them is, "Aren't you being hypocritical or what? If you are so patriot, why don't you go back home and help build the country? Why are you here anyway?"

I am and will remain shameful of being a Chinese for the rest of my life...

[3] I am ashamed

God, glad didn't go out yesterday. I live in London. Yes, I am ashamed of what happens in China. And to be honest, sometimes I don't really admit I am Chinese, if I had to, I would say I am a Hong Kong Chinese. How sad this is for some of us without a root? But I can't and don't want to be seen as China Chinese, although technically, we have no choice. Because there are some many things that China needs to change if they want to be accepted by the rest of the world. I am not saying that other countries like the states and even Britain are anywhere better, but China... needs to work harder.
I heard the news today saying that China shouldn't even have allowed to host the game at the first place, it was from like a 10 year old kid. That sounds like a too strong of an opinion, but perhaps this would have been the best solution.
