『天佑台灣』只是自我安慰,依舊無能為力?

天佑台灣只是自慰用語

臉書 難攻大士 難攻大士在自己的臉書發表了篇【每當聽到『天佑台灣』,我總會想起這個故事…】的文章,文章中他提及到台灣只要發生在災難都以「天佑台灣」慰藉自己,但其實這只是台灣人逃避的方式,根本無法阻止悲劇發生,許多網友紛紛表示贊同,知名導演楊雅喆也分享了此篇貼文。

【每當聽到『天佑台灣』,我總會想起這個故事…】

這故事版本很多,但無論什麼版本,你一定聽過。

我放個英文版在底下,免得說我瞎掰。

整個故事,我只翻最後兩段,你就曉得意思了──

「當他上了天堂,那人站在 神的面前質問祂:『我一生對祢信仰虔誠,祢為什麼不來救我?』

神回答道:『孩子,我先派人送了警告給你,又派了一輛車去載你,再派了一艘小船去問你,又派了一艘汽艇去接你,甚至還派了一架直昇機去救你…你還打算再等什麼呢?』」

每一次,台灣只要發生什麼重大事故,無論媒體上還是網路上,總是聽不完的「天佑台灣」。

當然,你大可將此詮釋為台灣人生性善良、慈悲為懷,但我越來越懷疑這樣的說法了。

一次災難「天佑台灣」,又一次災難「天佑台灣」,然後再一次災難「天佑台灣」…

這算什麼?是老天真的狠心不佑台灣嗎?還是哪裡出了問題?

「天佑台灣」是多麼廉價的一句話呀…口裡喃喃唸著「天佑台灣」的人,多半只是藉著這句「經文」來替自己壓壓驚、慶幸自己不是當事人、替自己漫漲的情緒找到寄託,甚至講句殘忍一點的,「天佑台灣」不過就是一句自慰用語,彷彿說了「天佑台灣」就表示自己實在是個善良的人,雖然無力改變什麼,但總還是個善良的人哪…

善良個屁!誰說你無力改變什麼?你只是裝睡裝死不想去面對問題、不想去對抗命運而已!

對!我要說的是,這些「悲劇」表面上看來似乎都是上天不仁的隨機安排,但你睜大眼睛仔細瞧瞧,哪件是不能避免的?哪件是不能透過人的努力預先將發生機率與後續噩夢降到最低的?

「大地震」雖然不可避免,但事前的水土保持和事後的災難處理,絕對可以降低損失和傷亡!

「空難」完全可以避免,只要在平時落實機組人員的控管與訓練,甚至在勞動條件上大幅改善,機率可以降到最低!

「氣爆」完全可以避免,只要政商結構性的勾結和隱瞞能夠及早攤在陽光底下、透過結構性的程序妥善處置;更別提事故發生之後,「特定政治勢力」利用中央執政優勢,操弄輿論攻擊、剋扣支援補助、阻撓地方救災、利用災民做為選舉籌碼、利用災難遂行政治鬥爭的無恥行為!

「粉塵煉獄」絕對可以避免,只要執政者具備危機意識,而非鄉愿式地討好「財團/企業/商家」甚至配合消防安檢放水,只顧政商合謀獲利,反正只要不出事不死人,這群既得利益者總是「雙贏」;而就算出了事死了人,也可以透過操弄檢調司法媒體輿論引導風向,後台硬的保證金蟬脫殼全身而退,轉嫁龐大社會成本讓全民接手,等到鋒頭一過、熱度不再,連「天佑台灣」都在媒體上與網路上銷聲匿跡的時候,一切,再度回復平庸邪惡的日常結構當中…

各位台灣的善男信女們,大家為什麼不仔細想想,這幾年來,你在媒體上聽過多少次「天佑台灣」?你在網路上留過多少次「天佑台灣」?我們究竟什麼時候可以不再需要這麼頻繁廉價地喃唸「天佑台灣」這句自我安慰?

「當台灣又發生災難,你總是無語問蒼天:『我不斷地禱告天佑台灣,上天為什麼不救台灣?』

我想,上天如果聽到,應該會這樣回答:『孩子,我先派人送了警告給你,又派了黨外運動去啟蒙你,再派了反對黨去支援你,又派了社會運動去開導你,甚至還派了熱血學運青年去激勵你…你卻一而再再而三地把票投給黨國權貴政商吸血鬼,甚至替這群信口開河包藏禍心爭功諉過自私自利的惡魔,打擊我派去救你的使者,你說,我還能怎麼幫你呢?』」

其實,「天佑台灣」已經保佑很久了──

但,始終裝睡裝死抗拒「天佑台灣」的,根本就是你自己啊!

“God Will Save Me”

A terrible storm came into a town and local officials sent out an emergency warning that the riverbanks would soon overflow and flood the nearby homes. They ordered everyone in the town to evacuate immediately.

A faithful Christian man heard the warning and decided to stay, saying to himself, “I will trust God and if I am in danger, then God will send a divine miracle to save me.”

The neighbors came by his house and said to him, “We’re leaving and there is room for you in our car, please come with us!” But the man declined. “I have faith that God will save me.”

As the man stood on his porch watching the water rise up the steps, a man in a canoe paddled by and called to him, “Hurry and come into my canoe, the waters are rising quickly!” But the man again said, “No thanks, God will save me.”

The floodwaters rose higher pouring water into his living room and the man had to retreat to the second floor. A police motorboat came by and saw him at the window. “We will come up and rescue you!” they shouted. But the man refused, waving them off saying, “Use your time to save someone else! I have faith that God will save me!”

The flood waters rose higher and higher and the man had to climb up to his rooftop.

A helicopter spotted him and dropped a rope ladder. A rescue officer came down the ladder and pleaded with the man, “Grab my hand and I will pull you up!” But the man STILL refused, folding his arms tightly to his body. “No thank you! God will save me!”

Shortly after, the house broke up and the floodwaters swept the man away and he drowned.

When in Heaven, the man stood before God and asked, “I put all of my faith in You. Why didn’t You come and save me?”

And God said, “Son, I sent you a warning. I sent you a car. I sent you a canoe. I sent you a motorboat. I sent you a helicopter. What more were you looking for?”
