2014.5.31【中译英】“约架”打不出正义的结果——《人物周刊》2012.7.3

    所谓“约架”就是相约打架。这种打架并非过去欧洲绅士之间用剑或枪一较生死的决斗,而是街头混混们通过武力决出胜负的互殴。在崇尚暴力的流氓文化中,“约架”是解决个人恩怨和团伙矛盾的公平手段,其基本规则就是“拳头硬的说了算”。

    So-called "appointed fight" means making an appointment for fighting. This kind of fight is not like the duel between two gentlemen by sword or gun in Europe in the past, but the fistfight among hooligans to fight for win. In the hooligan culture that admires violence, "appointed fight" is a fair method to solve personal problems and team conflicts with its basic rule of "fist stronger, talking louder".


    奇怪的是,如今一些知识分子和商界精英也动不动要“约架”。这些人或因意见相左、或因商业利益冲突、或就想找个名气更大的人炒作自己而在网络上攻讦对方,用尽嬉笑怒骂后还觉得不过瘾,于是便“约架”,似乎要向公众证实自己的“英勇无畏”。

    What is weird is that nowadays, some intellectuals and commercial genius ask for "appointed fight" now and then. These people, for reasons like disagreements or commercial interests collision or just the need for a person with great fame to make themselves better known, attack others on the internet by mocking or abusing or any other means. If they still cannot satisfy themselves, they will ask for an "appointed fight" which seems like a way to show their "bravery".


    作为受过良好教育的成年人,无论“公知”还是“五毛”,闹剧式的“约架”只能是低层次的情绪发泄,不可能打出一个正义的结果。中国历史上演过无数腥风血雨的战争和杀戮,暴力文化底蕴深厚。可以说,中国社会从来都不缺少暴力和偏激,而包容异见的气度和法治精神少得可怜。

    As a well-educated adult, either the public intellectual or the internet public opinion guide, should realize that "appointed fight" is just like farce which is a low-level way to abreact emotion with no possibility to figure out a fair solution. In the history of China, there were too many bloody wars and murders so we have a profund violent culture. We can draw a conclusion that there is never a lack of violence and extreme opinions in China's society while the exist of comprehensive bearing and nomocracy consciousness is always longed for.
