務實的真諦

週五承朋友仔關照,有幸參與一午餐會.會上,勞工及福利局局長張建宗向各人介紹最低工資的“好處”.

局長的半小時發言中,多次重申“務實”兩字.不論政策,態度,行動,方向,手法,通通加上“務實”作形容詞.才疏學淺的我,好幾次想舉手請教局長何謂“務實”,但身為二打六一名,無謂失禮朋友,只得作罷.

會後,立時衝回電腦前,借用古狗神力,尋找“務實”的真諦.結果顯示,“務實”,即 "Pragmatic",據MW的解釋是:

"Related to matters of fact or practical affairs often to the exclusion of intellectual or artistic matters."

那一條務實的法例,是否會Exclude intellectual or artistic matters?
依循此方向,我終於首次 “換個角度”明白到,點解政府可以唔知醜地硬銷一條嚴重歧視殘障人仕外籍家傭的不平等惡法.

百度上亦有人提問 “务实是什么意思”,那被提問者評價為“非常感激”的最佳答案是:

“务实就是实在地做该做的东西,用最简单的方法做事。拿一个很简单的例子, 1+1=2 这就是务实。如果, 1+1=10x10-25x3+[(68-24)/4]-34 那就没有务实可言了。

务实的好处就是可以把很多没有价值的工作省略了,比如重复的报告,多余的制度等。”

依這個解釋的話,務實不就等於,只要是政府認為沒有價值的工作,都可以省略?
哪政府的價值觀又是?????

對務實二字依然茫無頭緒的我,就在此際,想起午餐會上的一小幕...

“個D弱智既家長講...*”局長如是說.

感激我家的弱智家長,教女時最多要求我做人腳踏實地,沒要求我以“務實的方法”生活.不然的話,我便要穿著阿妙妙喪追滾水碌腳般離開的局長,以向他請教 “務實的真諦”來一盡孝道.

多謝阿媽.

*局長想說的,該為 "個D弱智(人士)既家長講..."

弱智的家長?
弱智的局長!
不是說弱智是歧視,要改口說智障嗎?

Oops, it's a Freudian slip.

I strongly disagree with your view point in this blog.

You extracted "a" (not "the") definition of 務實 from the internet and forced that onto the viewpoint and the action of another entity is grossly unfair. If this is a government definition THEN you can probably draw blood upon it. Otherwise you are just randomly (or at least based on personal feelings) assigning meanings to people's action.

Furthermore, if neglecting tasks of no value is part of being 務實, what is wrong with this? You can attack the government for not assigning any value to certain tasks, but you cannot say that neglecting tasks of no value is wrong.

If the government have to start allocating resources to tasks of no value, you would probably blog this as stupidity sometime in the future.

e+ d高官, 唁加多幾個形容詞說唔安樂, 總之就務實地講空話...
