The freedom and justice fighters such as Mr. Yang Tongyan, I praised them as "the noblest men in China" in December 2004; however, a few weeks ago, by accident I saw Mr. Jiao Guobiao, a prominent former Beijing University vice-professor described Mr. Yang as " the Scum"! Another Guy Mr. Xu Shuiliang, a former democratic fighter also repeatedly curse those fighters as "the blackest"! Why and what reason?
Mr. Jiao's reason is that Mr. Yang play a game which is not better than those ignorant Chinese peasants when he support the colour revolution, and they disturb the political reform by the CCP. While Mr. Xu's excuse is that 90% of the fighters are the CCP spies.
My argument is that the fighters are noblest gentlemen in China for they are willing to sacrifice their own interest for common good and for whole country's future. Only those who have noble spirits could choose such sacrifice hardest way to fulfil their great dream. Most of them are talented and intelligent person who have high education, provide they do not care of common good and pay a little attention to their own family's benefits, not openly against the evil regime or simply keep silence, not to say cooperate with the CCP, they would have easily to make good fortune and enjoy a wealthy and comfortable life. However, they courageously stand up against the evil criminal regime and publicly express their comment and criticise of the regime, as the result, they were seize their career, lost their property and freedom, broken family, ruin career, some of them suffering in prison for years, others forced exile, still others lost everything but spirits. Even under such hard and difficult situation, many go on fighting as a courage fighter without complain. They are the treasure of our society, what they are fighting for is not for selfish interests but for the long term and fundamental interest for all members of the society. WHo can sacrifice their own interest for others? The best model is our Lord Jesus who sacrifice himself for human being's sin, using his blood to clean the sins of human being.
What is noble? noble spirit usually only belong to those who devote themselves to public interest and common good while always put country, state, nation, society, community and other's interest as priority than their own interest. Usually they pay more attention on spirits life rather than material enjoyment. Thus most majority people who have noble soul are those come from noble family, because they are not necessary worry about daily life, always have high education, full of knowledge of life and history, they have leisure to reflection and meditation about meaning and purpose of life, they study philosophy,history, morality, law, politics, literature, enjoy poem, music, dance, pursue fairness and justice. Compare all members of the society in China, the freedom and justice fighters are the noblest group in any area.
Mr. Jiao and Mr. Xu are wrong in both theory and practice. Either they do not understand the conception of noble, or they simply say something against their own inner faith. Mr. Jiao is a professor, whose wise and intelligent brain must have enough understanding to distinguish what is right and what is wrong, so do Mr. Xu, who used to be a "theorist of democratic movement", thus, I strongly suspect both of them are betray their faith to the democracy and freedom and justice values? Anyway, welcome Mr. Jiao and Mr. Xu debate publicly.
Note: I post a massage on facebook, then Mr. Jiao Guobiao comment:
