Morality and Power in a Chinese Village 评价人数不足
读书笔记 Preface

She had come to the village to serve the poor and lower-middle peasants of China; she and her fellow propagandists totally identified themselves with the poor and the lower-middle peasants, loved and cared for them as Mao had commanded in his essay “Serve the People.” Yet it was clear that she had never considered marrying any young, poor and lower-middle peasant from the village and that she looked with pity upon some of her female colleagues from Canton who had married village peasants and settled down to lives as ordinary peasant housewives. The idea of serving, loving, respecting, caring for, and identifying with the poor and lower-middle peasants clearly had its limits. It meant something like standing above the peasants and imparting to them the wisdom one had learned as a young, urban-educated Communist. … And I too came to “remember” ideas about the intimate connections between self-sacrificing generosity and self-righteous arrogance that I had “learned” but never really understood from books and had experienced but never really admitted in my own life.
