蘇賡哲:原來李敖騙了他

先是龍應台推出力作《大江大海1949》叫好又叫座,接著李敖乘機揩油寫了本《大江大海騙了你》,歪理一大堆,卻又銷情不惡。想不到還有武之璋緊躡其後,以黃雀在後的姿態出版《原來李敖騙了你》。騙來騙去,讀者一時目為之眩。
    很多人以為武之璋這本書是要替龍應台反擊李敖,其實武之璋目的在維護蔣介石。不過,他在書中再三強調,年輕時,李敖是他的偶像。他說:「一生影響我最大的兩個人,一個是我父親,一個就是李敖。所以高信疆先生介紹我第一次與李敖見面的時候,我不但尊稱李老師,並且告訴他我是他的私淑弟子。」自稱李敖文章讀得一篇不漏的武先生說:「李敖是國民黨到台灣後影響力最大的一個知識分子,受影響最深的可能是我這個世代。」
讀了《原來李敖騙了你》,發現武之璋的偶像其實是蔣介石。大家都知道,李敖費了一生精力所做的事就是攻擊兩蔣,尤其是攻擊蔣介石。這樣說來,武之璋應該是自覺被李敖蒙騙,他的書名應該改為《原來李敖騙了我》才對。
    今天,確實有不少李敖的崇拜者覺得被李敖騙了。他們以為李敖是反極權反專制的英雄;想不到台灣民主化後,李敖出現在世人面前的,是向海峽對岸專制極權獻媚的另一種臉孔。從而察覺李敖的反蔣,只不過是挾怨報復。他受歡迎,是他迎合了民間對蔣家政權的怨氣。有如傅國湧說的:「眾所周知,李敖有過人的才氣,有生花的妙筆,有懸河的口舌,更是洞穿了人性的弱點,懂得把握公眾的心理。」如此而已。
    今天的李敖,是劉曉波所譴責的「在言行上一步步地墮落」,「已經完全失去了獨立的知識分子立場和起碼的是非觀念,而淪為成王敗寇的信徒和強權者的幫兇。他把暴君毛澤東稱為中國最偉大的政治家;他公開為六四大屠殺的劊子手辯護、為現在中共政權對台灣的打壓辯護。他藉『鳳凰衛視』向大陸布道時的說辭,專門抹黑民主台灣和替獨裁大陸辯護。」
    然而武之璋對李敖的這個騙術毫無揭露批判的興趣。他覺得今天的大陸已經強大了,經濟起飛了,國共和解了。他更引用美國學者陶涵所說:「蔣如果看到今日中國在嚴密控制下緩慢擴張,城市高樓林立,加上其他的現代化成就,他可能認為他長期規劃,看起來夢幻的反攻大業已經成功了,他的繼承人已經光復大陸了,國共鬥爭已經落幕了,至少在此一世紀是如此。推動現代中國在二十一世紀前進的,是蔣介石的主張,不是毛澤東的觀點。」
    這就出現一個「怪圈」。如果今日中國大陸已經「蔣介石化」了,那麼李敖之歌頌北京政權不就是在歌頌蔣介石嗎?維護蔣介石的武之璋不就應該維護李敖對中共之歌頌。只是恐怕將來武之璋又要發現自己再次被李敖所騙。
    武之璋維護蔣介石之論,大多沒有新意。例如李敖說宋美齡與美國人威爾基的緋聞,有楊天石澄清文字;關於丟失東北,有曾景忠的《張學良說:不抵抗命令是我下的》和吳漢文《謎一樣的銑電》及更多文章。至於為孫中山辯護的作品更數不清了。
    事實上現今兩蔣巳被邊緣化,武之璋文章再好,也只能說是歷史意義大於現實意義。看來還是龍應台對普羅百姓的悲憫情懷較為可取

較之大江大海,我還是覺得“巨流河”比較好看。

Dear Mr Soo,
I have been all about debates which were stirred up by Lung Ying-Tai's BIG RIVER BIG SEA - on and off.
When I first noticed on You Tube 4 years ago in 2009, that Lung had just written a book named BIG RIVER BIG SEA, I was not sure if I should try to buy it, because 12 years ago after having read one of her articles about why she could not swim, which she blamed the reason that during her childhood, all of Taiwan's coastlines were forbidden for swimming, and so, she never managed to learn how to swim. I felt this was not the truth, because I was born in the same year and I used to swim in southern Taiwan sea (Gaoshiung and Kenting), and swimming in the sea was my whole family's favourite sports in those days. I therefore emailed Lung at her designated address in Hong Kong City Polytechnic College, letting her know that her childhood experience was not every Taiwan child's in those days. Bus she never replied, even though I emailed her for the second time, reminding her that it was important that Taiwan's true history should not be mis-shaped in her writing to the West. Well, 2 years ago, I was shocked to discovered that Lung had given talks and lectures in Canada and USA, telling her Western audiences that the reason she had never learned to swim was because Taiwan's coastlines in her childhood were all military zones and no-one was allowed to swim in the sea ! I therefore could not bring myself to buy her BIG RIVER BIG SEA book, because I had no idea just how truthful her stories would be, if she had ignored my genuine truth from my childhood in Taiwan - and I am not even from the KMT background but a local Taiwan girl ! This year, Lung came to the UK to give talks in London and Cambridge, and before her talks, I contacted the organizer, asking them to remind Lung, not to tell her UK audiences that same old untruthful story about Taiwan coastlines again. She obviously did not tell that same untruthful story again as the result of my urgent email. But, till today, after my 3 letters to her at Taiwan's Ministry of Culture, gently requesting her to edit those You Tube videos in which she told that untruthful story to her Western audiences, yet those videos still were there, Lung continued ignoring my urge to edit them or remove those untruthful parts.
My experience as Lung's reader has so far made me feel that probably Li Au's accusation about Lung's not telling the truth might be quite creditable, as that part of the history was before I was born, and I could not comment on that. But I have since lost my trust in Lung for being a sincere honest writer, not to even mention how she could be trusted as a Cultural Minister in Taiwan today !
If you would like the evidence of what I said - about Taiwan's coastlines in my childhood (I was born in the same year as Lung, un 1952), I could send you some photos from my school days on the beach with my whole school-mates as our school trip to prove to you, that Lung's story was not truth.
Sincerely Yours,
