【网友力作】西方抹黑北京奥运,是因为恐惧意识形态失控

原作者:Yunchu Li。摘自联合早报

 

传统上,在所有西方媒体的宣传中,共产党领导的国家都是贫穷的、落后的、肮脏的,人民是愚昧的、闭塞的、麻木的,如同人们在北朝鲜、阿富汗见到的情况那样,只有民主国家才有可能做到富有、先进、干净、开放和富有活力,如同人们在美国、日本、新加坡见到的情况这样。这个的意识形态上的大对比,这是西方媒体反复50多年努力以后好不容易建立起来的. 在西方世界,这样的信仰是不可怀疑的,犹如对上帝的信仰一样。其实,这个信仰在非西方,包括亚非拉也一直没有受到过威胁,连印度都以为自己比中国先进二十年,因为自己是民主国家,中国是共产党国家.

 

  可以说, 通过二战和冷战, 以英美为核心的西方在过去六十年内都一直让全世界相信, 除非服从西方制定的世界秩序, 除非跟随西方模式走, 不可能有第二条走向富强的道路.

 

  然而, 2008年奥运会要在北京召开,全世界将会目睹共产党中国这个社会的风采的这一刻, 西方开始忧虑了. 这是由于西方所指出的建设富裕文明民主国家所需要的要素, 包括多党制, 媒体和金融业向西方开放, 信仰基督教, 外交上要俯首听命于西方主导的国际秩序, 更重要的是共产党不能执政, 中国一条都不符合, 但是中国的经济却腾飞了, 连续繁荣了30.

 

  过去, 西方主流媒体都可以在对中国的报道中选择性忽视中国的这些进步来继续为他们的意识形态圆场. 但是, 眼看奥运会将要在中国召开, 全世界的运动员都要聚集中国, 全世界人民都要把目光聚集在中国身上的时候, 西方想让国际社会看不见中国的进步已经不可能了.

 

  当西方民众和发展中国家的民众发现中国这个共产党国家其实经济非常繁荣,市场非常发达,拥有比纽约还要庞大的摩天大楼城市群,拥有比美欧还要崭新宽敞的高速公路,公交系统四通八达,人人都穿着时尚,宝马、奥迪、奔驰、悍马满街跑的时候, 他们会怎么想?

 

  当西方民众和发展中国家的民众发现中国这个共产党国家其实遍布互联网,通信非常发达,信息非常开放,城市里几乎人手一部手机,每三个人就有一部手提电脑,到处都是公共电话亭、共用洗手间的时候, 他们会怎么想?

 

  当西方民众和发展中国家的民众发现中国这个共产党国家其实环境污染并不像想象中的那样严重,很多大城市都是遍布绿地,绿树环绕,一城山色半城湖的时候, 他们会怎么想?

 

  当西方民众和发展中国家的民众发现中国这个共产党国家的人民非常热情好客,知书达理,见多识广,聪明智慧,民主共和意识浓厚,当家作主派头十足的时候, 他们会怎么想?

 

  西方媒体该如何解释为什么中国能在共产主义制度下取得这样的骄人成绩?

 

  这样的事实,将很大程度上一举颠覆西方国家花了好几十年建立起来的共产主义国家的刻板负面印象, 引发国际社会的崭新思考和对中国的持续关注. 西方完全有理由担心,这样一下去, 如果有一天中共的路子走通了, 中国在中共的领导下也成了或者接近成为发达国家了, 对他们过去以意识形态对比控制主导的国际秩序会产生怎么样的冲击? 如果中国持续繁荣发展下去, 客观上将为发展中国家展示第二种独立自主走向富强的道路. 发展中国家人民看到这些中国发展的事实,惊讶之余,会重新思考西方以前给自己灌输的一套是不是一定正确. 即便不照搬中国这样的共产主义道路, 也可能会考虑吸纳模仿中国共产党的许多做法。这样的意识形态上的冲击,对于整个西方世界将是灾难性的。因为共产党中国崛起的第一步就是在共产党的带领下赶走列强, 实行土改, 把所有跨国公司的资产收归国有, 用毛泽东的话说, 是没收帝国主义主义和官僚资本主义的生产资料. 一旦全世界190多个国家中有上5%模仿中国模式,推翻本国政府,建立以毛泽东思想为指导的共产主义制度,坚决走有本国特色的社会主义道路,大家可以想象的出来这对西方世界的霸权体系会产生怎样的冲击? 北约, 抑或美日联盟有足够的能力弹压住这些变动么?

 

  俗话说, 防患于未然. 西方及早抹黑北京奥运会, 抹黑中国也就不足为奇了.

 

West denigrates Beijing Olympics for fear of runaway ideology

 

Tradiationally, in all western propaganda, Communist countries are, without exception, poor, backward, dirty, their people ignorant, closed-minded, and insensible, just like what people usually see in North Korea and Afghanistan. On the other hand, only the so-called democratic countries can achieve wealth, advancement, hygiene, openness and vigor, as people can usually see in the U. S., Japan, and Singapore. This stark dichotomy was established as a result of the western media’s audios efforts in the past 50 years or so. In the western world, such belief is unmovable, as is the belief in God. As a matter of fact, such belief was never questioned even in many parts of the non-western world, including Asia, Africa and Latin America. For example, India believes that it leads China by at least twenty years, just because it is a “democratic” country, while China is not.

 

We may safely say that in the past six decades, through the WII and then the cold war, the Western world which rallies around the Great Britain and the US has been making the rest of the world believe that unless a country obeys the world order specified by the West, unless it follows the Western model, that country is out of luck in the road to wealth and power.

 

 

However, the west begins to worry as the Beijing Olympics is drawing near, an event that will show the whole world the charms of the Communist China. This worry was caused by the fact that China’s economy has token off and has brought China continuous prosperity for three decades, yet China does not satisfy any of the preconditions for developing a rich wealthy and democratic country as prescribed by the West – namely, the multi-party system, openness of the media and financial sector to the west, Christianity, diplomatic obedience to the west-led international order, and most importantly, the Communist party not as a ruling party.

 

In the past, the western mainstream media was able to selectively ignore these achievements in their China reports to continuously justify their ideology. However, now that the Olympics is going to be hosted in China; athletes from all over the world are descending on China and viewers from all over the world will set sights on China, it will be impossible for the western world to prevent the international community from witnessing China’s progresses.

 

What will people from the west think when they find that the Communist China enjoys booming economy, highly developed market, megalopolises even bigger than New York, highways that are newer and wider than those in America and Europe, and extensive public transportation systems, and that its people dress fashionably and drive BMWs, Audis, Bentzs and Hummers?

 

What will they think when they found that the Communist China has highly developed Internet and communication systems and very open information system, and that in the cities almost everyone owns a cell phone; every three people own a laptop computer and public phone booths and public washrooms are everywhere?

 

What will they think when they find that the Communist China’s environment pollution problem is not as bad as they imagined and that many big cities are covered with green grasses and trees, filled with mountainous landscapes and half of a city is often covered by lake water?

 

What will people from both the developed and developing countries think when they find that the people in the Communist China are very hospitable, educated, informed, intelligent and have dense consciousness of democratic republicanism and ownership?

 

How are the western media ever going to explain the achievements proudly achieved by the Communist China ?

 

To a great extent, these facts will destroy once for all the rigid and negative images of the Communist countries that the Western countries took several decades to establish, and lead the international community to think from a new perspective and continuously pay attention to China. The West has every reason to worry the kind of impact to their previous international order which is controlled and dominated by ideological dichotomy, when Communism is proven to be practical and when China under the leadership of the Communist Party becomes or is close to a developed country. If China can enjoy sustained development and prosperity, then it will demonstrate to the rest developing countries a second independent approach to wealth and power. After witnessing the progresses that China has made, besides feeling surprised, the developing countries will also re-consider the ideas pumped into their minds by the West by questioning their validity. Even if they end up not copying Communism, they will still consider adopting or imitating many approaches taken by the Chinese Communist Party. This kind of ideological impact is disastrous to the whole Western world. This is because the first step the Communist China took to rise up as an independent country is driving away the Western powers, carried out land reform, and nationalizing the capitles of many multi-nationals. To quote what Mao Zedong said, this was to “confiscate the means of production of the imperislists and the buraucrat-capitalists.” Once 5% of the 190 countries in the world copy the Chinese model, overthrow their governments and establish the Communist system guided by the Mao Zedong thought, and march towards the socialist road with national characteristcs, we can imagine the kind of impact this will have to the Western hegemony. Will the NATO, or the United Sates-Japan Alliance has enough power to suppressed these kinds of changes?

 

As the saying goes, “nip it in the bud”. No wonder the West is acting early to denigrate the Beijing Olympics and to denigrate China as a whole.
