Intellectuals 知識份子

"知識份子是已存在的威權文化的信徒,並致力於該文化的推廣。"
"Intellectuals are students of the established culture, are devoted to the culture and its continued promulgation."
from: Revolution or Reform? Thoughts on the Character, Strategy and Destiny of Sudbury Valley School. Daniel Greenberg, 1971

因此我們不能依賴知識份子帶領我們走出我們所身處的混沌。
Which means, we can't count on intellectuals to lead us out of this mess we're in.

Stacy都說明:
威權文化從古至今沒有改變過。我們總是敬畏長者、害怕我們的主管,畏懼本身就是威權文化的產物。
知識份子在這樣的體制之下,無形中也接收了這樣的文化,同是進一步不斷地傳遞下去,最後在毫無感覺的情況下也成為威權文化體制下的一員。
Stacy explains further:
Authoritarian culture has not changed since ancient times. We always revere the elderly, and fear our bosses﹣fear itself is the product of an authoritarian culture.
Intellectuals, under such a system, invisibly receive this culture, and further continue to pass it along, and in the end without really realizing it also become members of the authoritarian culture system.
