議員不識國寶:「鍾肇政是誰啊?」 Councillor never heard of prominent writer: ‘Who’s Chung Chao-cheng?’

一早到龍潭輔選。這裡是國寶級作家鍾肇政的故鄉,應該是在地的驕傲和光榮,前幾天地方議員審查文化預算時,竟問「鍾肇政是誰啊」,令人感慨文史和社區教育的失敗。有人說過,人生最高的成就的境界是人已經離開江湖,但江湖還在傳說他的事跡,社會還在受他的言行影響。鍾老在文學的貢獻,一百年後也還有影響力,而質疑的議員只要落選一百天,就沒有人會記得她了。

Early morning campaign at Longtan, Taoyuan. This is the hometown of the prominent and distinguished writer, Chung Chao-cheng, who should be the pride of his birthplace. However, a few days ago, [when going over spending on preserving Chung’s old flat as a museum and holding relevant activities] in a budget review, a local councillor challenged: ‘Who’s Chung Chao-cheng?’ I can’t help but lament about the failure of our literature, history and community education. Someone once said: ‘the highest achievement is when one has left the frontline, people still talk about their stories and the society is still influenced by their words and deeds.’ The influence of Mr Chung’s contribution in literature will still exist after 100 years but the councillor who questioned his standing will be forgotten in about 100 days after losing an election.

‘Councillor never heard of one of the most influential Taiwan writers. Our history & community education needs work.’

‘Chung Chao-cheng’s influence will last for generations. Councillor who questioned his status will be forgotten soon after losing an election’
