When a guest asked about the hygiene of an inn the hostess talked endlessly with full of confidence, "There we have all kinds of fly prevention facilities, such as fly swatters, insecticides, fly covers, screens, mosquito repellent incense, and electronic fly swatters." The guest was so surprised that he dared not go to the inn for dinner. With such a wide variety of fly prevention facilities, it can be seen that the flies in the hotel are numerous and rampant.

When I read such books as Roots of Wisdom, the Wisdom of Ancient Aphorisms and many other books on philosophy of life, I thought of the above story. What kind of realistic environment did the ancients live in? Presumably, bad guys are everywhere, such as mosquitoes and flies, doing disgusting things.

It doesn't take much effort to identify mosquitoes and flies. They suck blood, trample on human food, and spread germs, which force humans to take various means and methods to eliminate them. However, bad guys are not so easy to identify.

When I was young, there were often bad children in the village doing bad things, sneaking around and making trouble. They "wore hats on one side, pulled shoes on the other side, and at a glance they were not village children", whistling, snapping their fingers, smoking cigarettes, wearing strange clothes, having strange hairstyles, and with a toad mirror. This was the standard configuration for bad children. People sneered at them and avoided them. They didn't need any strategies and principles for such bad people, and they just hated them and stayed away from them.

However, the development of society has also made the bad guys have obvious changes. The era has gone in which, at a glance, we can see who the bad guy is. The bad guys have also put on masks, and even the mask has become a part of the body.

People have two sides, the good side and the evil side. There is no doubt that people are also a unity of contradictions, both good and evil. For the strong, people will show their kindness and sunshine, and while for the weak, people will show their evil and dark side. It is not the fault of the poor and the rich, but human nature which is to blame.

Mr. Lu Xun said that the strong draw their swords against the stronger, and the weak draw their swords against the weaker. But how many strong men are there? Most people are still weak.

So many people in the world study the philosophy of life, and many principles of life have been handed down to this day. For example, Silence Is Golden, and where ignorance Is Bliss, which are sufficient to explain the complexity of society and the evil intentions of the people.

To protect ourselves from mosquitoes and flies, humans invented fly prevention facilities, and to protect ourselves from the blows and revenge of bad guys, human beings have summed up the way to deal with the world.

Isn't the way to deal with life like the fly prevention facilities? Fly prevention facilities use things that can be seen and touched, while philosophy of life uses the principles which are invisible and untouchable.

有客人问一家饭店的卫生情况,老板娘滔滔不绝,信心满满:“防蝇设施一应俱全,苍蝇拍、杀虫剂、苍蝇罩、纱网、蚊香、电子蝇拍等。”客人闻之,大为惊讶,不敢去饭店吃饭了。如此种类繁多的防蝇设施,可见饭店里的苍蝇众多而猖獗。

当读到《菜根谭》、《增广贤文》,还有诸多处世哲学的书本时,我便想到了上面这个故事。古人是处在一个怎样的现实环境中?想必,坏人无处不在,如蚊蝇,干着令人作呕的勾当。

识别蚊蝇不需要费劲,吸血、践踏人类的食物,传播病菌,逼得人类采取各种手段和方法来消灭之,可坏人就不是这样容易识别了。

我小时候,常有坏孩子干坏事,偷鸡摸狗,惹是生非。他们“歪戴着帽子,趿拉着鞋,一看就不是庄家孩”,吹着口哨,打着响指,叼着烟卷,奇装异服,怪怪的发型,外加一个蛤蟆镜。这是坏孩子的标配,众人嗤之以鼻,躲避三舍,对这样的坏人无需什么策略和原则,只是讨厌之,远离之。

可社会的发展使得坏人也有了明显的变化,一眼望之,便知是坏人的时代消失了,坏人也戴上了面具,甚至面具已成为身体的一部分。

人都有了两面性,善良的一面和邪恶的一面,不容置疑,人也是矛盾的统一体,皆有善恶。对强者,人会展示出其善良、阳光的一面;而对弱者,人会展示出其邪恶、阴暗的一面。趋炎附势,穷在闹市无人问,富在深山有远亲,这不是穷人、富人的错,而是人性使然。

鲁迅先生说,强者抽刀向更强者,弱者抽刀向更弱者,可又有多少强者呢?大多数人还是弱者。

世上那么多人研读处世哲学,许多处事原则流传至今,如沉默是金,难得糊涂,都足以说明社会的复杂和人心的叵测。

使自己免受蚊蝇的骚扰,人类发明了防蝇设施;使自己免受坏人的打击和报复,人类总结出了处世之道。

这处世之道不就是那防蝇设施吗?防蝇设施用的是实实在在看得见摸得着的东西,而处世哲学用的是看不见摸不着的原则。
