Mad Or Not?!

我睇左本書, 其中有個故事好有意思, 好想同大家分享下

The story is that:
A powerful wizard, who wanted to destroy an entire kingdom, placed a magic potion in the well from which all the inhabitants drank. Whoever drank that water would go mad.

The following morning, the whole population drank from the well and they all went mad, apart from the king and his family, who had a well set aside for them alone, and which the magician had not managed to poison. The king was worried and tried to control the population by issuing a series of edicts governing security and public health. The policemen and the inspectors, however, had also drunk the poisoned water and they thought the king’s decisions were absurd and resolved to take no notice of them.

When the inhabitants of the kingdom heard these decrees, they became convinced that the king had gone mad and was now giving nonsensical orders. They marched on the castle and called for his abdication.

In despair, the king prepared to step down from the throne, but the queen stopped him, saying: “Let us go and drink from the communal well. Then, we will be the same as them.”

And that was what they did: the king and the queen drank the water of madness and immediately began talking nonsense. Their subjects repented at once; now that the king was displaying such wisdom, why not allow him to continue ruling the country?

The country continued to live in peace, although its inhabitants behaved very differently from those of its neighbors. And the king was able to govern until the end of his days.


到底何謂傻? Maybe, it is the answer!

係傻... 定係睇佢追求d 乜呢... 心係邊到咁, 咁佢所做的行為都係向佢的目標做呀...
嗯... 反思人生目標的文章呀!

我覺得這個故事係想講:
同類在同類之中就叫正常,
非我族類的就叫有問題,
道不同不相為謀,
一個正常人在一班有問題的人當中佢就係有問題,
如你要在某一個圈子裡生存,
你就必需變成o個個圈子裡的人,
如果唔係就會比人孤立,
只好離開。

續上:
基督徒在反對基督教(反基)的人中就被認為係唔正常,
但相反呢?
反基的人在我們基督徒中我地又應該點看待佢?
應該包容佢,還是要道不同不相為謀呢?

咁主耶穌係祭司文士面前又係點樣呢?
好明顯大家立場不同, 但主耶穌卻可以公開地與他們"對話".

呢篇文章真係so mad,
你要改變你的原則, 去迎合群眾的原則,
咁呢個世界仲有冇真理, 仲有冇一套既定的標準去跟從呢?
