Not Speaking for Capital and Power, is the literati's Most Basic Morality
There are always problems!
There are a lot of people who are blind (to see), just let they blind themselves; but fool others and saying: blindness has its benefits!
Such people have completely forgotten their own class, become the tongues of those Vested Interests; and "goons" to defend their strength.
And some of the activists' styles of behavior have become tougher, for the benefit of their individuals and even small groups (including, to gain greater favor and reward from the "upper class").
If the "Upper" distinguish right from wrong, and understand the hearts of the soul and people, can be good things, the bad is that they are also blinded by "interests", blind themselves too!
