Daily Quote: rat race

Published by at 16:34 under Daily Quote

英国工会领袖、工党活动家、记者 Jimmy Reid 最近去世,他留下的名言中有以下这段,形容现代资本主义社会把人变成奔命的老鼠:

A rat race is for rats. We’re not rats. We’re human beings. Reject the insidious pressures in society that would blunt your critical faculties to all that is happening around you, that would caution silence in the face of injustice lest you jeopardise your chances of promotion and self-advancement.

This is how it starts, and, before you know where you are, you’re a fully paid-up member of the rat pack. The price is too high.

    In present China, people tend to be competitive every day. So rat race really exists in Socialist Countries too.
