So someone in the forum is trying to destroy Lu Xun again eh? Ha ha, ridiculous.
…He was someone who had left China and studied abroad, so his perspective was larger than those domestic ground beetles, probably because of this there is [stronger] thought in his essays…I don’t dare compliment his private life, keeping a mistress, playing with female students…however thinking about how at that time [China] had just separated from its feudal societal state, men with many wives and concubines were still very common, so I won’t criticize too much.
Using the language of today: colluding with Japanese anti-China forces, publishing illegal magazines, inciting the ignorant masses, making chaos in society, influencing the harmony of society, the web manager should check his IP and he should be pursued across all borders.
Lu Xun is everyone’s Lu Xun. No matter how different the two sides are that are arguing, both can say “If Lu Xun were alive…”
This has given me a headache, who was Lu Xun really?
An old fenqing [angry youth], an old study-abroad student
I don’t know what kind of person Lu Xun was, the Lu Xun that I “know” all comes from things other people have said.
If you speak Chinese and are interested, check out the original post as there are tons of comments (over 24 pages).
