April 16, Huzhou, Zhejiang. In the Yingpan Mountain Scenic Area, the sculpture of a woman feeding her mother-in-law has aroused heated discussion among netizens. On the 16th, the person in charge of the scenic spot said that these sculptures are about the ancient twenty-four filial piety. The sculpture of breastfeeding mother-in-law is a filial piety among 24 filial pieties, which has been passed down from generation to generation by ancestors, and young people today may not understand it.
If you deliberately study the story of “Twenty-Four Filial Piety”, you will find that in the context of the times, in this series of stories, which era is the most frequently appearing? The answer is the Wei-Jin era. In this era of more than one hundred years of reunification, there are five stories in the story trials based on almost the entire feudal era. They are: abandoning the official to be married, hurting the finger and thinking about the relatives, kneeling and reading the father’s book, crying bamboo and growing bamboo shoots, lying down. Bingqiu carp. In just one hundred years, it accounted for more than a quarter of the twenty-four filial piety. The Tang Dynasty, the peak of feudalism, was selected for one story. Why? Is it because the Jin Dynasty is a filial son, and the Tang Dynasty is a filial son? And the stories of other dynasties, such as selling oneself to bury the father, or begging with his mother behind his back, even if it is Guo Jumeier, although it sounds terrifying, it is a matter of the world. Then listen to “Weeping bamboo shoots, lying on ice for carp”, is this something that humans can do? This Jin Dynasty has become a low demonic plane. Look at these filial sons again: Wang Xiang, Langya Wang clan, official to San Gong; Gu Ti, Jiangzuo family Gu clan, was an official at the age of fifteen; Meng Zong, Yushi doctor…Recall Comrade Li Mi’s “Fu Wei” The holy dynasty ruled the world with filial piety”. you got it? These things are actually the political program at the time, and the people who tell these stories are the protagonists themselves. Did anyone see Wang Xiang when he asked for the carp? Has anyone eaten the bamboo shoots? In an era of strict domination, every large family always occasionally comes out a few “little prodigies”. These prodigies are either juvenile or singular or noble. In short, they are extremely politically correct. In this way, their predecessors can do so. It is justifiable to pave some way for them in certain areas… In the final analysis, many plots that violate the imagination of normal people in the twenty-four filial piety are the products of the involution of the prodigy of the family. If you have an extraordinary story, it will be difficult for you to be “fixed” in the prosecution system. So today you are supporting education at the age of eight, and I will aid Africa at the age of nine tomorrow. The day after tomorrow he will go to the grassroots to help the poor when he is fifteen…As for the authenticity, no one cares, just like no one will check the college students’ application for party membership. In fact, twenty-four filial piety is similar to the story of courage to assume responsibility, such as writing to save the father and bearing the rice to support the relatives. It has its merits, and it is also very suitable as an allusion for teaching and educating people. But why do some propaganda in some places like this kind of magical idea? Even if you really don’t mean anything else, it seems to the caring person that you still intend to miss something.
