面對經濟殺手時做自己的英雄—讀《經濟殺手的告白》

經濟殺手的告白 by John Perkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


現今定義成功是什麼的主流概念仍以成長與擴張的方式做評斷,但卻很少人愈質疑背後帶來的影響或思考無限成長後,然後呢?有可能永源持續成長下去嗎?遇到大自然的反撲只是小小的警示鐘,會不會人類要到已經被自我的貪婪吞噬後,在滅亡的關鍵點才急忙後悔。


美式帝國主義悄悄深入我們的生活中,以為看到的就是真相,讀一讀這本書,或許能稍微看見自己的無知,我想美國不是真的在意台灣,而是在意自己的權力與利益,若沒有利益早就被踢開, 台灣這樣一腳東邊一腳西邊的奇異島嶼,我們的價值是什麼?自我追尋的東西是什麼?

若想一下;為何那些一個個中南美洲曾經受到底層百姓支持的領導者,總是在崛起不久後為了國家自身主權利益奮鬥的過程中,突然因為飛機失事身亡了?真的有這麼湊巧的事情嗎?看多了好萊烏電影,還以為超人真是正義的象徵,希望中東人、黃種人、中南美洲人還是大洋島嶼上的少數民族等各式各樣的民族,都可以在面對帝國軍的經濟殺手做自己的超級英雄。

Today’s mainstream concepts which define success are still based on a form of growth and expansion. However, very few people question the impact behind it or think about the possibility of unlimited growth. Is it possible to continue to grow forever? The nature’s counterattack like the virus which shacked the world is just a small warning bell. Will human beings finally regret at the critical point of destruction after being swallowed by self-greed?

American imperialism has quietly penetrated our lives. After reading this book, when I try to think about the truth in front of the medias’ information. It is easier to know my own ignorance a little bit. I think the United States does not really care about Taiwan but cares about its own power and interests. If there is no benefit for the US, Taiwan would be kicked away a long time ago. What is our value as a peculiar island one side on the east side and the west side?

If you think about it, why do all the leaders in Central and South America who have been supported by the people from the bottom of the country usually suddenly died in a plane crash when they were working for the country’s own sovereign interests and not long after their rise? Is there such a coincidence? I have watched a lot of Hollywood movies and thought that Superman is really a symbol of justice. I hope that the Middle Eastern, the yellow race, the Central and South Americans, the ethnic minorities on the ocean islands, etc. can all be our own superheroes when we face the economics hit man or the imperial army.
