殖民政權的論理繆誤
@ 江建祥
入陣曲 By 五月天

聖經上說:『人心比萬物都詭詐,壞到極處,誰能識透呢?』(Jer 17:9) 又說:『 我耶和華是鑒察 人心、試驗人肺腑的,要照各人所行的和他做事的結果報應他。』(Jer 17:10)雖然上帝的報應是必然的,但是祂報應的時辰卻不是我們可以左右的。 所以,在上帝能夠替我們伸冤報仇之前,我們必須懂得如何保護自己不受惡人詭詐、壞到極點的黑心所害。

外來殖民者從他們『悠久』的歷史裡累積了成千上萬欺瞞、詐害他人的所謂『中國人的智慧』。面臨鋪天蓋地的詭詐、謊言和邏輯不通的論理謬誤,甚至無理硬拗,現代人必須具備洞察邪惡伎倆的能力,才能保持自己智慧的純真和靈魂的潔淨。

下面是一般巧言令色者常施的故技,當觀看政論性節目或閱讀任何文宣的時候 (尤其是在聽唐湘龍或陳明義講話的時候),我們必須把在耳朵、眼睛和腦袋之間安置一個多層的過濾網,才能保證不受心靈的污染:
