【海外視角】劍橋學者Martin Jacques:西方國家對香港暴徒視若無睹,香港經濟破局看大灣區

事件詳情

劍橋大學政治和國際研究系高級研究員Martin Jacques說,香港長期抗議活動背後的根本原因與西方正在發生的事情沒有什麼不同——新一代年輕人失去希望和樂觀,導致了一種虛無主義。他還說,香港的亂象正被西方國家當做政治宣傳武器,意圖詆毀中國的國際形象。

專家採訪原文翻譯:

西方國家確實對香港暴動視若無睹。在非法暴力示威和大型和平示威之間,僅僅存在著細微的區別。暴亂行為如果發生的話在西方自己的國家,他們永遠不會支持它。事實上,英國現在面臨的這個問題也是大規模叛亂,英國警察目前已經逮捕了一千多人,他們阻止了大量示威者前往倫敦、希思羅等地。惟香港的局勢已經被當成攻擊中國的武器,因此西方國家不遺餘力將非法暴力示威行為美化成和平示威活動。

我認為香港年輕人主要的問題是對未來失去了希望,失去了樂觀,失去了信心,這導致了一種消極,一種虛無主義的行為。普通人真的會將自己居住的地方毀滅嗎?實際上這種現象就是虛無主義帶來的惡果。

融入大灣區發展對香港來說是一個很大的機會。我認為,其中一個困難是自從香港回歸後,與中國經濟更加一體化以來,香港公眾面長期以來的相對不情願。這是一個很大的錯誤,因為中國華南的經濟實際上比香港經濟更具活力,所以對於香港經濟來說,是一個實現新增長的絕佳集會。我認為香港需要這樣的機會,需要這種無線的可能性。

This is true largely in the West. It has been the way in which no distinction has been made between the violent demonstrations and the big peaceful demonstrations. They would just never endorse the behavior of the riots here, (if it happened)in their own country.

They would never support it. In fact, Britain's now facing this problem with extinction rebellion, and the police have already arrested over one thousand people and prevented them going to London, Heathrow and so on. So (the situation in Hong Kong)it's being used as a stick to beat China with.

I think the main problem is there's a kind of loss of hope, loss of optimism, loss of a sense of the future, which was resulting in a kind of negativity, a kind of nihilistic behavior. Do you really beat up your own home and trying to destroy it? I mean that's what's been happening.

I think the greater Bay Area is a really big opportunity for Hong Kong. One of the difficulties I think has been the relative reluctance over a long period since the handover for Hong Kong to become more integrated with the southern Chinese economy.

And I think this has been a big mistake because the southern Chinese economy and so on has actually been at much more dynamic, an expansion than the Hong Kong economy.

So I think Hong Kong needs this access. It needs this possibility.
