 In one of my classes today the topic was "Politics" so knowing that it was going to be tough for the students to think up of topics I went onto some news sites to look up what was happening recently in the world politically.

I figured since my students would probably be most familiar with issues related to Japan that's where I'd start but all I could find were 2 issues, one being the skirmish between China and Japan continuing as some Chinese boats were seen near those islands that Japan, China and Taiwan all claim to be their's (the same ones where that collision a few months early took place) and the other being the strong Yen against the weakening dollar.  Apparently the Yen's at a 15-year high these days, pretty impressive and joyful for those earning Yen and wanting to go shopping abroad, but bad for Japan's exporting sector.  Also mentioned was that the U.S. was, once again, pestering China to allow its currency to appreciate so that Chinese exported products will be more expensive in the U.S. so that U.S. companies will at least stand a chance against those cheap Made in China products.

当然了,说到中国西方的媒体趁机在捅一下中国政府。 西方媒体真是讨厌死了。 我在美国住了三年,在加拿大十四年就没听他们说过中共什么好话。好像就是2008抗震救灾那次西方媒体勉强的对中共点了下头,穰侯马上又说什么中共早就该知道文川地区要发生大地震,什么乱七八糟的。  我呸,美国当时katrina也是早就料到了,不也是最后搞得乱得要死吗?是,要是真的当时预料到了中共没做什么他们是应该千刀万剐,死了那么多人,谁都不好受,可是你西方没资格说三道四的。一会儿是法轮功,一会儿中国造的玩具有铅,又是西藏闹藏独又是新疆搞独立,又是中国在非洲不应该跟苏丹政府买石油,或者是中共没有谈论自由,要不就是网络censorship,中共就是什么也做不对是把?不就是因为位中共是共产党吗?西方(特别是美国)的眼中钉,肉中刺。俄罗斯91年被他们给弄到了,就剩下中共没垮。

这次中日关系紧张,西方那边偷这乐。借着机会说中共又在组织百姓的评论自由。什么中共支持民族主义但是因为有些游行开始对中共提出要求,比如要跟西方一样的multi-party政府,结果被中共给组织了。是啊,中共不想像前几年一样让那些太爱国过头的人在把日本大使馆给egg了,那是多大的罪名啊!中国人想往日本大使馆扔鸡蛋是他们的权利,中共凭什么阻拦?中共说 "patriotic passions are understandable" 但是warns "against actions that violate laws and regulations"  还 "urged demonstrators to plunge into their work and studies rather than take to the streets"  的意思当然是 "你们恨日本可以但是要是威胁到我们共产党的权利是不可以的"  .....Er....right...yeah.....

西方的民主主义到底有什么好,我就是搞不通。真正的民主是不可能的,他需要的条件事实上没有一个国家可以满足。真正民族最基本需要每个人都了解政治,了解国际关系,了解每一个关于自己国家的问题,从医疗到教育到经济等等,这真的可能吗? 不可能。所以因为没有可能满足这一个条件(别说其它的了,比如民主是一个很贵的政治系统所以穷国根本没办法搞民主)民主在理论上是很好听,但是现实不了,跟共产主义一样。 更别提西方的民主根本不是民主,美国人除了四年选次总统两年选次 Congressman/woman 和 Senator, 还能干些什么?加拿大也差不多,过几年选个总理穰侯完事儿。 在国会前摇旗呐喊订个屁用。选上去得人有几个在竞选时说实话? 每个人都是甜言蜜语的,说得好像个个都是 Superman/woman, 神通广大,就是不能腾云驾雾,其他的什么都行,结果上了台就都忘了。搞得西方政治像看电影似的,应该实实在在领导一个国家的政治家们个个像演员,真正本事没几分就靠张嘴。我靠,就这个颇系统还以为是什么宝贝,拼命地往外推销想让别人学,想得真美。

好了,不说了,怪烦的。 So anyway, all this China talk's made me all patriotic-feeling inside, and I felt an urge to share a nice little song with you...inspired by APH (lol, anime; Mengya's portal to politics).  歌是为在日本漫画 Hetalia 里边代表中国的王耀写的,and named after the fan artist group of the same name who focus their works on Yao. 不知道谁做的 MV, 一开始是90世纪初的王耀,battered and defeated,about to give up on living.  但是 the dragon tells 耀 he was "born as a dragon" and even covered in mud "a dragon is still a dragon".  第一次看的时候哭得好厉害,耀君这百年来真不容易,现在刚刚能松口气了可是还是麻烦一大堆。到底什么时候他能再次回到他从前的荣耀啊? 我好期盼着这一天!
 


为龙

(题材:王耀中心同人志《为龙》)
作词:浣姬
作曲:河图
演唱:河图

手心上 亘古的月光
那道伤 一笑而过的苍凉
翘首觐向 你伫立一方
是你生而为龙的狷狂
谨记你的姓名是炎黄

烽燧上 战地的残阳
断刃旁 岁月悄然的流淌
十二章纹 你遥祭四望
血脉奔腾的黄河长江
是你与生俱来的张扬

风雨打尽红墙和绿瓦
丹青留下明日的黄花
汉字里墨香温存一笔一划
世代传承的表达

盛衰荣辱斑驳了脸颊
千载过后洗净了铅华
一直坚守的土壤在你脚下
至死不渝的回答

藏心上 亘古的月光
怀中殇 不再回眸的苍凉
翘首觐向 你伫立此方
谨记生而为龙的模样
谨记我的姓名是炎黄

(Song download here.  I'm dying to translate this song into English but the lyrics are like...freaking impossible to do D: )

(Picture by me, 10 minute doodle with some work in Photoshop)

耀君,愿我有生之日得见您君临天下!
