St. Simon’s outside the textbook

  Middle school liberal arts textbooks have ruined many people’s interests. This is not sensational. If historical figures and historical events are as boring as textbooks, who would like history. For example, the French reformer St. Simon, the textbook only said that he is one of the three ancestors of the socialist socialism, was abandoned by Marx, almost just an unsmilable joke. In historical textbooks and political textbooks, you will never read such a story –

  The teacher found that Saint Simon was not diligent, went to the branches, and wanted to punish him. St. Simon’s cold-eyed teacher was busy. When the teacher approached the branch, St. Simon took out the stationery knife and stabbed the teacher’s buttocks. Is this story not important? Why did St. Simon’s respond to the teacher because he was born in Paris, has a arrogance of “I am a regular member”, or is he hate the decaying education system, and launched an armed uprising when he was not in the world?

  During the French Revolution, Saint Simon gave up the hereditary Earl, and considered the title to be a low-lying thing, which eventually led him to end in abject poverty. At that time, the nobility nicknamed the civilians as “idiots”, and Saint Simon gave him a new name – “idiot citizens” – standing on the side of the proletariat. Is this move not worthy of history? It is worthy of history, but it is not qualified to write a textbook in middle school. St. Simon can only be boring and abstract, waiting for Ji Lianhai and Yuan Tengfei to come to resurrection, but such a teacher is rare.

  Textbooks will certainly not mention St. Simon in March 1823. At this time, the French Revolution has passed 34 years. This bloody and tyrannical revolution is called the “most thorough revolution” by Chinese history textbooks. In fact, its The newly established society, the hard-working scientists, artists, and workers have not received any rewards, and all kinds of rewards and respects are all privileged classes of “free leisure”. “This privilege mainly comes from family origins, aunts, and conspiracy. “Tricks and other unsatisfactory behaviors,” they lived a parasitic life of arrogance and extravagance. “In all kinds of industries, there are talented people who rule the talented people, those who do not have morality dominate the good citizens, and the big criminals punish the criminals. The person who made a small mistake, the official responsible for managing public affairs, spent half of the tax every year, and the other half of the tax was not used to benefit the workers. In the face of such a reversed world, Saint Simon has been committed to socialist reform, but he is often degraded and hits the wall.

  In March 1823, St. Simon was 63 years old and he was desperate and angry. He filled the bullets and shot them seven times in the head, but he didn’t know why he didn’t die. He grabbed the injured eyes and went to the doctor. St. Simon did not find a doctor and went home to remember his socialism. He asked the doctor who came after him. “If I have seven bullets in my head, can I still think?” The doctor found six bullets on the floor. They didn’t hit the head of St. Simon. Only one found in the fireplace broke his eyes and passed through the skull. One week later, St. Simon, who had walked on the line of life and death, miraculously healed and continued to observe the primary stage of capitalism with one eye.

  This is for the faith of life and death, if it is a belief that you do not believe but want to use it to eat, you don’t have to be sensational. So to say, even if this is not about the narrative skeleton of historical figures, at least it is flesh and blood, is an effective annotation, can understand the warmth of Saint Simon’s socialism.

  If I know this, I would rather remember that such a Frenchman, for the first time in the history of socialist thought, proposed that ownership is the social foundation, the government is just its form, and he first pointed out class and class struggle, and Against the privilege, his first system criticized the capitalists for their own politics and lacked the power to organize the economy. He first proposed the planned economy and distributed according to work. The first one regarded “meeting the needs of the people” as the ultimate goal of socialism, because he opposed To overthrow the existing system with a violent revolution, only use propaganda as the only means to arouse the monarchy and achieve political reform. His theory is nicknamed “Utopian Socialism.”

  Will textbooks use these “firsts” to describe Saint Simon? will not! Textbooks must have faces, insist on instilling in spite of the effects of communication, and let most students throw away it when the exam is over.

  Textbooks also do not record the last moments of the life of Saint Simon. Before the death, the doctor asked him, “Are you uncomfortable now?” St. Simon answered. “Not uncomfortable, maybe I am lying, but it is boring, let us talk about socialism.” St. Simon talked for a long time, and finally raised his hand and said, “We are sure to win the ticket” and then die.
