必遭天譴的迷思

記得上年年尾香港一安老院發生虐老事件,護理主任陳秀娟逼長者吃糞便被裁定四項普通襲擊罪名成立,裁判官黃汝榮指其罪行令人極度厭惡,說她「必遭天譴」。 「必遭天譴」背後意味著有上蒼會對人類各種行為做出公平的審判懲處。但如有上天為我們作主,又何需「人」作法官、執法人員、制定法律、市民告發、提交證據、設陪審團,以確保一切公平? 如不是「人」去立法、捉拿、審判、懲罰,你認為陳秀娟哪一天會「遭天譴」?也許永不。 陳秀娟就在裁判官黃汝榮判她罪成那一天,被「譴」了。公平產生,正義得以伸展,陳秀娟完成被判的懲罰後,公平原則上她不應再被「天譴」。

Kill Economic Recession

It’s been on my mind for a while.  Every 10 years, economic recession.  People restrain from buying, companies cut cost, lay off people, people further restrain from buying.  “Economics” said the more people consumes, the better off the economy, as … Continue reading
