黃鐘毀棄 瓦釜雷鳴

今天(二零一六年九月七日)讀《東方日報》評論版〈強詞有理〉專欄,其中一篇由陳競立撰寫文章,標題為「黃鐘毀棄 瓦釜雷鳴」的文章,評論數天前的立法會選舉結果。文章指出,近年在政治化歪風吹襲之下,社會充滿偏激和戾氣,本土及港獨思潮泛起,主張溫和理性的被拒之門外,言行偏激的反而登堂入室。

作者引用了戰國時代屈原《楚辭.卜居》裡的名句:

「世溷濁而不清,蟬翼為重,千鈞為輕;黃鐘毀棄,瓦釜雷鳴;讒人高張,賢士無名。」

意思是說,世事混濁不清,顛倒是非黑白,恰似以蟬翼之輕為重,以千鈞之重為輕;也好似把銅鐘砸爛拋棄,反而把泥鍋敲得很響;善讒言之人佔據要職廣招黨羽,而賢能之士則被排棄不用。
