From “My Fair Lady” to “If you are the one”

In recent years, Chinese studies have been popular, from the book of songs to the Analects of Confucius, from the Analects of Confucius to the Red Mansions, all of which have been magnified by people in an unprecedented way without limits. Hundreds of philosophers, Tang Poetry and Song poetry, are also popular with people with supreme value and crazy pursuit. The five-thousand-year history of China is indeed worthy of our painstaking research, but it is by no means blind pursuit that leads to the extreme expansion of culture. Culture should have developed in an orderly way. Extreme expansion will lead to cultural explosion and eventually lead to cultural crisis, forming a series of vulgar cultures that lose essence and are popular. In order to express culture visually, many things are put on the screen. Confucius, Li Bai and Su Dongpo seemed to provide us with an unprecedented cultural feast, but they did not fill our stomach after the feast. Therefore, we began to study history crazily, even tampering with history for some purpose. We attempted to get the ways of doing business, governing the country and dealing with the world from ancient books, but we unconsciously fell into a strange circle. The understanding of culture is also very biased. Nowadays, the most popular one is nothing more than classic remaking, and I have read the new Three Kingdoms intermittently. There are different opinions. Some people say that it is not loyal to the original work and its language is too straightforward. Some people say that the fight is too bloody, and the lines are very shocking. The so-called classic is not what it tells you, but what you have learned. The reason why we think the original version is good is that the original version is deeply rooted. It is easy for us to look at the new version with a comparative or critical attitude. We often think that ancient people have great wisdom, but actually modern people have great wisdom. We can extend a series of truths from some simple words. Isn’t this great wisdom? Classics must depend on the real environment. If they are divorced from the real environment, classics are just a piece of white paper. Some time ago, people had been discussing “if you are the one”, about Ma Nuo, Yan Fengjiao, Zhu Zhenfang, about gold diggers, Yan zhaomen, and the denouncing of luxury women, the government finally couldn’t stand it any more, it was successively exposed on “Focus Interview” and “CCTV News”, and then the State Administration of Radio Film and Television issued a rigid document of program rectification. But I always feel that the effect of government intervention is obviously lower than that of public criticism. American lasted 40 years of dating show not launched less than 1 years of “You are the one” earned ratings are high, not our program of good, instead, we did what America dared not to do and said what America dared not to say. On one hand, it is a fair lady who is desolated by Chinese, and on the other hand, it is the continuous high temperature “if you are the one”. How long can such culture last? Suddenly I remembered a proposition: What Is Literature? According to the explanation of semantics, the art which vividly reflects the objective reality with language and characters is literature, which is more or less profound. To be more popular, all records related to human life are literature. Obviously, if we compare it with flowers, literature should be flowers instead of silk flowers and plastic flowers. Although the latter can last for a long time, it will eventually lose its truth. Another proposition is involved: What is the essence of literature? Essence is the essence, which is also the soul. There is nothing wrong with it. Truth is the essence of literature. Without this truth, this proposition is a false proposition. Speaking of essence, we have to mention Lu Xun. His sonorous and sharp words were like a dagger piercing the chests of Chinese people. If there was no real blade, others would just look at it as a pleasure after dinner. It was no wonder that even the American writer Snowe was shocked by the falling of the meteor. He lamented that the old rain was already gone, and the literary world felt hesitant from then on. With the advent of the consumption era, literature has more or less branded commercial interests. From the initial indifference to today’s vigorous struggle, it is really worrying. What worries me is not the disappearance of literature, but beyond recognition. It is not alarmist talk. Children who have been immersed in TV since childhood are used to watching Shaoxing opera, Qing palace opera and funny drama, it is inevitable to misunderstand history, although there is a completely imaginary reminder at the beginning of the film. The classics are not the treasures of the shelf, but the paper that is wiped diligently on the desk. Go back to the sea of books! This is not to say that books are in the spring of snow, and entertainment programs are xialimba people. As long as they are real, they can benefit people a lot, but this is the key to the problem. Excessive entertainment adds moisture to the real world. The result of extensive entertainment must be vulgarization. I am really afraid of entertaining to death under the title of postman! I extremely hope that there will be a cultural activity similar to the European Renaissance in the nineteenth century in China. Of course, it is not to let people come back to the old pile of paper and say the words of the people all day long, but to let us come back and have a look at the glorious history that really existed in China in the past. Don’t miss a fair lady because of “If you are the one”. If so, how sad it would be. June 10th, 2010
