大时代的故事(THE PERIOD)

The Period

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair,
we had everything before us, we had nothing before us,
we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.

 

--"A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens

 

这是最好的时代,这是最坏的时代;
这是智慧的时代,这是愚蠢的时代;
这是信仰的时期,这是怀疑的时期;
这是光明的季节,这是黑暗的季节;
这是希望之春,这是失望之冬;
人们面前有着各样事物,人们面前一无所有;
人们正在直登天堂;人们正在直下地狱。

 

--狄更斯,《双城记》

 

我们正在经历怎样的时代呢?

史无前例的金融危机已经扩散到实体经济,严冬已经来临。把现金握在手里吧,准备应付最坏的局面:(

在北京工作的八年间,刚好亲身经历了一轮经济增长周期,到如今的大衰退,人生完整了:D

我想起03年非典期间,北京末日危城的景象;所以,我丝毫不怀疑中国会挺过这场经济危机,五千年来我们已经经历过太多的类似的局面了。

不过,我更担心另一场将要到来的危机。先看这条消息吧:《美数十城市饮用水含镇静剂 4千万人有威胁》。我相信中国的情况也好不到哪儿去,估计我们的自来水厂根本没做过这些检测。再说即使检测出来又能怎样呢?

想象这样一幅可怕的图景:人类的各种化工厂拼命地生产化合物(药品也是其中之一),扩散到环境中。如果这些化合物不能在自然界中分解,最后就一定会通过各种途径进入人体内!

其实,危机不可怕,可怕的是认识不到危机。希望这些只是我的杞人忧天吧!
