"The UK is widely seen as a world leader in enforcement of IP. By working in partnership with law enforcement and industry, the government can deliver an IP environment where legitimate businesses thrive and consumers are protected.

For the time being the UK’s enforcement framework remains unchanged. We are still part of the EU and we will still play a part at the EU Observatory, and in bodies like Europol. The process for intercepting counterfeits and other infringing goods at the border remains unchanged.

The UK remains a part of the EU until the negotiations to exit conclude. We continue to play an active role in the review of the Enforcement Directive, and the Commission’s work on tackling commercial-scale infringement." - OK.

12月30日晚,收到海俊的电话口信,她心情沉重,说我们三班的薛雨
华去年在美国自杀了。那天听到留言时已倦极,又在和朋友吃饭时喝
了些许啤酒,完全无法进行正常交谈,不在回她电话的状态,给她写
了个电邮,就去了无思无乐无忧的梦乡。其实至今都没回她那个电
话,只因雨华之去一直沉甸甸的坐在我心里。


虽明白我们每一个人都会以一生谱写自己独特的乐章,雨华的乐章或
许有必要在她37岁时划上句号,震撼还是无法描述。虽然我猜测有人
已知她离去的消息,但从来每人说过。这一震撼到今日,终于要忆一
忆雨华。


薛雨华,1966年生人,属马,无锡洛社人,高1.58米。面容姣好恬
美,身材匀称苗条,舞姿妙曼,歌喉甜美,那时引三班无数男生竟折
腰,也深得所有老师的青睐。写的一手好文好诗,常常被刘春华老师
当作范文朗读,以训示我们这帮不开窍的家伙们。讲演起来如大将临
风,善长所有运动,加之跑步飞快,姿势优美如骏马奔腾。再加上英
文口语笔试俱佳,汪老师看到她也总是合不拢嘴。


我们三班刚来南师附中时,共8个女生,和高我们一级的外地女生一
起共28人被“隔离”在“城堡”的二楼,以便管理。她的床在我隔壁,我
们起初有年余形影不离,吃饭,上课,打开水,上体育活动。记得初
识不久,她偷偷告诉我她的梦想是做个电影明星。她拿出一张一寸的
小照片,那时算是高级的艺术照了--照片上她斜斜的身子,很甜美的
笑着。她说她的老师托人将那相片拿去上影厂给人看了,反馈是她很
甜,她依是带着期待,并未放弃明星梦。那时正是“小花”和陈冲红到
透亮之时,电影和电影明星是大于人生的东西。我们很认真地讨论如
果上影厂来找她的话,她要不要放弃学业,因她一直都是品学兼优的
好学生。


后来她家人来看她,我才发觉她的美并非来自遗传,她只是独自的美
着,好像造物主在创她时格外的尽心尽力,相比之下我们其他人尤其
是我是造物主赶“死期”时随便交差了事的作品。我从那时便认定了她
是个“尤物”。她的性格也是有着比较典型的江南水乡女儿的细腻和精
致,小处和大处无一不是面面具到,体现在钱上时会被我无情的讥笑
--我生于长于刘邦骑王八去偷狗肉吃,并被乾隆皇帝贬为“穷山恶
水,泼妇刁民”之乡的苏北--彪悍是民风,粗犷是气派。后来有一次
刘春华老师在语文课上“异想天开”地要我们写诗(“异想天开”是因为
高考不会考诗--但如今因刘老师的诸多“异想天开”而对他感恩不
已),我热情汹涌澎湃地从甲午战争到中国人民站起来了,洋洋洒
洒,纵横千年,战争和历史,写了好多页(有谁知欲罢不能的苦
楚?),得了95分。雨华写了一段火车上的故事,被刘老师拿来做范
“诗”读给大家听,风格是灵秀的江南烟雨。。。记得其中一句,“逗
笑了邻座的俏闺女。。。”,后来才知道雨华的诗只拿了 85分,但至
今都清楚地记得刘老师读那诗时陶醉的神情。 从那时起,雨华在我
心中就是哪个”俏闺女“。


雨华来自无锡,底子好,人灵秀,按我的懒人之理,应轻轻松松地上
学,可能她的细腻使她永远想精益求精,用功得厉害。我因上学早,
比同班人都小,比较懵懂,又非常贪玩,学习上觉得差不多就去玩
了,从来不想精益求精,再加上从来都不是老师的红人,从无有关谁
谁谁的内幕消息,还有就是年少时比较不敏感,故对周围发生什么完
全没有概念,许多事情都是稀里糊涂的混过去了。那时我并不知道班
上原来也有排名次,前些日子见到三班的苏明才知道一些同学之间竟
争加政治,搞得还有点儿气氛--现在看来,无知者无畏,真的也是一
种福气。


跟她形影不离的日子里,有时也逼得我不得不温书,当然也不乏找借
口自己去玩的时候,留下她一个人用功。记得一次汪老师说第二天要
默英文单词,雨华拉了我记单词,看了几遍我已没有耐心,而雨华不
厌其烦,坚持要彻底记住,我只好耐住性子和她一起温习--第二天成
绩出来,我得分比她高,对我来说是个侥幸,因我初中英文只学完了
4册(而不是六册),对细腻的她来说是个打击。这样忆起来,性格
真真决定命运--她的细腻,定使她经历了比别人更多的苦痛。


性格上的不同,加上我的懵懂和粗鲁,我们慢慢的走了不同的路。不
记得为什么闹别扭的了,后来我们不说话,然后我把蚊帐的嘴支去了
另一边,背对着雨华--刘老师很严肃的将我拉到操场边上(那时我还
有点受宠若惊,因刘老师从来不找我说话的),一脸郑重语气严重地
要我以后无论何事发生要从好处去想别人,那怕是矫枉过正,你和人
家什么仇,一定要搞成这样,那时我不懂(真的不懂他的意思),现
在想起来他老人家可能还有点的隐台词没好意思说-- 其实他照直说
了我可能一样是不明白,我那时可能真的是个麻烦,还和三班一个女
生打过架,当然单纯的到愚钝程度的我并不明白为什么还没问我为
啥,老师已经一定认为是我的不对,我也并不明白哪个女生已经去老
师那儿倾诉过了,而老师觉得已从她那儿得到故事的”正本"”全传“,
但不管怎么说我都是个黑羊--但值得他老人家欣慰的是他未完成的”
矫枉“事业,生活这个炼狱已替他便本加厉的作了。


后来我去了文科班,就没再和雨华联系过。听说她高考没考出水准,
她的理科总分大概和我的文科成绩差不多,原因是她太紧张。听说她
去了清华的科技英语专业。后来又听说她嫁了个山东人,她的同学,
那时觉得有意思,因她那时常常是对北方人略有微词,因北方人的粗
和憨,在和她交往时,我常因她的崇上海和崇洋而取笑她,虽然后来
我自己先后去了上海和美国 (人生真是有意思)。


雨华在班里的威信是毋庸置疑的。那时刘老师的另一异想天开是要我
们学唱歌。雨华是文娱委员,故重任在肩。因高考无音乐科,男生们
(那时我们只剩下了6个女生)掂着高考,阳奉阴违。雨华板下她矫
美的脸,晓之以理地“诱导”了男生一下,我从来没见过那帮穿土色老
鼠皮校服的男生们那么老实过。我想他们都是极之尊重她的(爱慕之
外)。


雨华她德容才貌俱备,兼深得身边人的宠爱,爱慕和尊敬,我一直都
觉得在她面前是丑且钝的小鸭。如宝玉说的,她是水做的,而我是泥
巴做的。那么一个精致的可人儿,我想爱她的人多而又多,我虽多年
与她音信杳杳,我也自认是她的倾慕者之一。她选择离开爱她的人而
去,一定因为她认为那是在那时她最好的选择,也一定因为她生命中
有她细致的心所不能再承受的苦痛。而终结自己的生命需要何等的勇
气和力量阿。


每个人的生命不同,有的人注定要在漫长的日子里体验,感受这人世
间的恒久苦痛和短暂欢乐,心一次一次地裂开,以使灵性得以感动他
们,以无比的柔韧和耐心,见证苦难中不尽的美,见证这颗心大到可
盛下无尽的哀伤和慈悲。有的人的生命如昙花,如流星,虽短却美得
让人不忍,雨华的生命,大致是后一种。而我们活下去的人,感谢她
又一次让我们的心裂开,又一次体验到生命的悲痛和无常,和那中的
美,也愿她平安去了她的灵肉得可安歇的地方,那里不再有苦痛,不
再有烦恼,只有一个江南俏闺女的甜美的笑靥。


以志雨华。

感谢叶平终于打破了这个沉默。


去年底放假在家,给3班的在凤凰城的李国华打了个电话,问起了薛
雨华,因为她是3班同学中我印象最深的一个。3班是个特殊的群体,
和其他班的交往很少。他们的考高中数学卷子曾难倒绝大多数当时初
三的附中在校生,说他们是才子才女不过分。薛雨华是这一群才子才
女中最活跃的一个,有时私下会妒嫉,如何造物者可以这样偏心。


满心以为可以从李国华那里得到薛雨华的通讯地址,然后发个邀请加
入组织,也许不久后可以在网上一睹芳容了。可是李的回答大大地出
乎意料--她不在了!2003年她自杀了。凤凰城的报纸登过新闻,但她
的名字已不为旧友所认识--Juia, 姓是她前美国丈夫的姓。3班也只
有少数人知道。李参加了她的葬礼。


我当晚很压抑,第二天一早想找人倾诉,给叶平拨电话,不通,就发
email.后来又与几个附中的密友谈起此事,但始终不愿也不敢在网上
公布,始终不愿相信这是真的。元旦后给汪老师发了个email, 略提
此事。后来听汪师母说汪老师很痛心惋惜。


我们又何尝不是?但我始终不苟同她的选择--这个选择太自私了。我
们每个人的生命其实不光属于我们自己。扔下年迈的夫母,让白头人
送黑头人,为不孝;离开自己所爱的和所有爱自己的人,让他们沉浸
在悲痛中,为不义。怎能自己说走就走呢? 人来到世上一定会有磨
难,早晚而已,生命也因此而更具魅力。如星光闪耀的人必竟极少,
绝大多数的人生是平平淡淡,却真真实实的。每个四季轮回都不同,
每天的太阳也不一样,每时每刻身边都有不同的故事,一颗细致的心
是不难体会生命的美好的。


说什么都太晚了, 对一个已去了的人再这样批评,实在过分。愿她
在另一个世界里安宁。

写了个长长的贴,被系统踢掉了,晚了,累了,下次再补吧


补充日期: 2005-01-15 01:21:28


亲爱的海俊


我深深地感受到你对雨华之选择的痛惜和慈悲。可也希望你能从生命
的另一个层面理解接纳并庆贺她的选择。


如你能够,暂且将你的哀痛和“假如”放在一边,念一下雨华的心路历
程。虽不知引发她离去的事件或一系列事件是什么,其实可以想象她
所经历的悲痛和绝望,那种黑暗如同汪洋大海,看不到一点希望,看
不到彼岸,看不到救赎,也没有任何牵挂可以再留她于这个世界。
你必须相信如果她那时还能够支撑下去,一定不会去的--结束自己生
命所需要的勇气和力量远远超出一般人的想象。那个时候对她来说最
美好的就是从那黑暗和绝望中解脱出来,那种愿望远远强过了对死亡
的强烈恐惧。


我们不可以将自己的判断加于任何一个其他的生命:诚然,如果从一
个“第三人”的角度来说,雨华从很多意义上都被上天情有独钟,实话
说我如果有她才能的百分之一作梦也会笑醒过来,然而假设的“第三
人”不是雨华。我们每一个人都不同,也不须承受她所承受的痛苦,
即使那些苦痛对“第三人” 来说可能不算什么,但她却是在实实在在
地体验着。有一句英文谚语说,“要知一个人的难处,须穿了她的鞋
子走上一哩路”。我们并不知道如果自己有她那样细腻的心思,在她
的境况下会做什么选择。


昙花只绽放瞬间,而菊花可久久地笑傲风刀霜剑。但昙花就是昙花,
不是菊花。如果用菊花的价值观来判断昙花,昙花无疑是是个失败,
如昙花的谢去是昙花的选择,在菊花的价值观下那个选择至少是不明
智的。可我们不能说菊花的生命比昙花更有价值,也不能说昙花应该
像菊花那样生活。


如静心观察一下人生,我们生活中不乏光彩四射的人在生命的巅峰溘
然而逝,如玛丽莲梦露,如张国荣,如薛雨华。这一类人生命的意义
原本就不再活到发苍苍视茫茫,只因他们活的是“永恒青年”的能量,
她们姗姗而来,感动无数生命,倏然而去,又感动无数生命,她们的
人生价值不在于活一个芸芸众生可以接受的生命。生命的神秘也正在此。


虽我自认为是生命力极顽强的“烧不尽”的野草,在我的生命中也多次
经历了绝望的黑暗,在那种绝望之中,为了不再苦痛,死亡之吻所带
来的灵肉可得安歇的甜蜜许诺,极有诱惑。我仍在,只因一来我没有
雨华那种勇气和力量,二来我是注定要在漫长的日子里慢慢地体验感
受和见证人生的无常和痛苦,发掘那之中无限的慈悲和美,并将这种
慈悲和美传播出去。而对人生苦痛和无常之绝望和黑暗的体验,使得
我如今可以“变本加利”地热爱人生,和在人生苦痛和无常中挣扎的同
类(包括自己)。


生老病死,是人生的必经阶段,无常,是人生的真相。我们迟早都会
去的,雨华只是先行了一步。雨华是一朵空谷幽兰,她的生命或许不
像仙人掌那样顽强,可她盛开时以她的美和雅感动了她生命中的每一
个人。我们今日怀念她,她的美丽和光艳不可方物的是我们对她的永
恒回忆。雨华之去,是她生命完美的结局。爱她的我们,可选择接
受,尊敬,并庆贺她的决定。


在苦痛和无常中活下去,是我们的十字架,也是上天给我们的恩赐,
因那苦痛和无常中有无限的慈悲,美,神秘和发现。在念她的震惊和
悲痛之中,活下去的我们可选择将对生命无常和痛苦的体验,化作慈
悲和对生命的无限热爱。欢庆生命的每一刻,充满愉悦地歌唱和舞蹈
着走完这一段路,并将些许慈悲和欢乐,传播给身边的人,方不枉生
命这一礼物。


深爱你的

关于雨华,我也想说两句。这几年回洛社,初中的班主任吴老师提到
好几次说找不到雨华,她的家人也说找不到她,心里就一直有一个担
心。这次十月初中同学毕业后的第一次聚会,在组织过程中才确证了
那个我们都不愿相信的消息。大部分同学都来了,却不见雨华,心中
十分难过。初中一起两年的学习生活,当年懵懵懂懂的我对很多同学
和往事都很模糊,对雨华却有很深的印象。她很漂亮,她和她姐姐的
照片挂在当时镇上唯一一家照相馆的橱窗里,是当年我们这些小丫头
们特别羡慕的。她学习非常出色,好强的她总是要争第一的。课余我
们也经常在一起玩耍,我还去过她的家。那么美好那么优秀的一个
人,多年来一直印在我的记忆深处。现在伊人已去,悲伤之余,我愿
意相信天国就是她向往的归所。愿她在那里无忧无虑无惧,快乐而安宁!

Lonn Friend Interview - copyover from wayback machine

Lonn Friend

Lonn Friend with Richie Sambora and a Jersey buddy
Lonn Friend is the former editor of the famous American rock/metal magazine RIP. He was also an editor at Hustler magazine and was an A&R man at Arista. He has worked extensively in TV and radio. His entertaining autobiography Life On Planet Rock: From Guns N' Roses To Nirvana, A Backstage Journey Through Rock's Most Debauched Decade was published in 2006 via Portrait. More information can be found at www.myspace.com/lonnsworld



How did you become a music writer in the first place?

Early Flynt days, ’82, Althea asked me to start a music column for Hustler’s sister publication, CHIC. I called it Music Notes and wrote bits and reviews. Madonna and Motley Crue items. But I was never a critic. I always preferred writing about what I experienced personally. So my pen evolved from porn to metal to metaphysical online journals and blogs. I loved writing essays in high school and college. And x-rated fare never intimidated me. Evaluating hardcore came naturally. I think that’s why finding Henry Miller in 2002 was nothing short of life altering. The length of breadth of Miller’s voice, sight and authenticity cannot be overstated. Misfits, rebels, they have always inspired me. Having Larry and Althea Flynt as early mentors, I was doomed!



When was your first introduction to rock music?

After seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show, I bought my first record. Meet the Beatles. I was seven. Some roll their peepers when I recall with precision that Sunday evening with my four-year-old brother on the floor of our duplex apartment in Sherman Oaks, California. The earth went off its axis the minute America saw John, Paul, George and Ringo and a television studio filled with maniacal teenage girls. As the next ten years passed, I was a serious student during the day but a hopeless, self-sequestered music nerd by night. I listened to everything, pop, Motown, the Brits like The Kinks, Pink Floyd, The Stones, how you can name names? It was the ‘60s and ‘70s, the greatest two decades in the history of contemporary music. I had an air guitar in my hands for hours shredding Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper, and Lou Reed. Those pre-pubescent days set the path of not just my career but my life. I didn’t call the chapter in my book, ‘Chicken Soup For The Rubber Soul,’ for shits and giggles.



You edited the famous RIP magazine in the eighties and nineties. Can you give me a brief story on the creation of the magazine?

It’s well documented in my memoir but in a nutshell, I was near the top of the men’s mag editorial food chain in 1987, heading out at night to the Sunset Strip with the porn folks and local rock freaks. They were gravitating my way naturally and I went where that river was taking me. A scene was start with Quiet Riot, Ratt and Motley. Then GN’R came along and the video of Axl stepping off the bus, the brave seeker abandoning his one horse roots to taste the toxic tid bits of big bad tinsel town. Althea died in July of ’87 and she wanted a rock magazine to succeed at Flynt. I took RIP over in its tenth issue, altered the content from punk and hardcore to reflect the follicle-happy bombastic culture emerging locally, and followed the synchronicity of my staffers being street pals with Guns N’ Roses. RIP was born with GN’R. We had the first interviews with the band. I hired Del James, gave him the title senior editor, and before the ‘Patience’ video was shot, we were family. I did a cameo in the clip and Del put a RIP tee on Axl. And we vigorously embraced the heavier, more molten metal, like Slayer, Megadeth, Voivoid, Death Angel, Testament, When I got the exclusive to cover the making of Metallica’s Black – the only writer/editor in the world permitted monthly visitation to the North Hollywood studio where they were tracking – we were untouchable. Granted the porn connection laid a familiar foundation for the provocative hard rock community. Aerosmith’s management once called me and begged me to stop sending Steven Tyler x-rated videos. I said, sure, until on the set of the ‘Living On The Edge’ video shoot, Steven took me aside and said, “Don’t listen to that shit from management. You keep those tapes coming!” He and I understood each other. Relationships were being developed, friendships that were unique and trusting. I had insane access the other magazine editors couldn’t touch. I never took any of it for granted. I brought the good tales back for the fans. And we all had fun.



Were there any music magazines that inspired you to fulfil your dream (Rolling Stone, Creem, Sounds et al) of writing/editing a magazine?

I didn’t read Stone a lot; occasionally Trouser Press but I’ve never been a big periodical reader of any sort. I didn’t set out to run a magazine. It just happened. I had no game plan and cannot sight inspiration from other pulp sources as the match that lit my professional path 25 years ago. I just followed the flow of things and kept true to my love of music and a strident dedication to the fan. Being one, having a staff and freelance cache of editors, photographers and writers who were also fans, that’s why RIP kicked ass. We mirrored the passions and perversions of our audience.



Can you share some details on the more memorable experiences from your time as RIP’s editor?

The seven anniversary parties were each legend in their own way, starting with the first at the Cathouse where Sly Stone came in hammered out of his mind and took pictures with the Bangles; Axl showing up an hour after the party ended at the Country Club where some years later, Boogie Nights was filmed. “I was recording with Don Henley. Sorry Lonn,” said Axl. The next year he more than made up for it as GN’R played the third RIP party as a warm up for the four mythical Rolling Stones shows at the Coliseum. The Fire Department threw half my guests out at midnight because we were over crowded but a thousand remained in the Park Plaza Hotel upstairs ballroom and they witnessed one of the most incendiary performances of GN’R’s career. Axl stage dove, Mike Monroe did ‘Heartbreak Hotel.’ A couple years later I put together a jam for the ages at the Hollywood Palladium with GN’R, Metallica and Sebastian Bach. They called themselves ‘Gaak,’ and took the stage an hour after Ozzy had smoked ‘War Pigs’ with Faith No More. Bas did an enthusiastic but flawed ‘Whiplash,’ so Hefield took the mike from him and said to the crowd, “I’m gonna do it this time. That other dude fucked it up.” The Seattle Party, however, was the most venerable of all. Pearl Jam on early, followed by Spinal Tap with Joe Satriani on guest lead guitar, Alice In Chains, with Duff McKagen on bass, Soundgarden and the one only true Temple Of The Dog set ever. Photo of my My Space page of Eddie and Chris taken by Marty Temme says it all. The entire cast of Twin Peaks was partying in the balcony. A music business veteran promotion guy comes up to me elated and inebriated and says, “This is the best party I’ve ever been too. I just got a blow job in the parking lot!” Bon Jovi played for us to help promote Keep The Faith and Pantera killed the last RIP party before I departed the company in mid ‘94.



Who did you interview?

Axl, Slash, James, Kirk, Lars, Jason, Megadeth, Soundgarden, Primus, Bon Jovi, Motorhead (still good pals with Lemmy, see him at the Rainbow now and then), Motley Crue, Queensryche, Tesla, Def Leppard and about fifty more. During the KNAC.COM online journalistic resurrection of 2000-2001, I did a streaming video series and sat down with Rage Against The Machine, Korn, P.O.D. Disturbed, Pantera, Static X, Rob Halford, Ian Astbury, Brian Johnson and others.



Which artists did you find difficult to interview during your years at RIP?

It was never difficult because I operate without expectations with only sparse preparation and few canned questions. My style has always been to hang, have a conversation, let personality and chemistry dictate the course of the content. Sometimes it made for magical exchanges, other times, flat root beer. But that’s the nature of the beast. I just dug (and still do) talking to musicians about their ‘muse.’ Most of these special blokes are tortured narcissists, driven by shadow as much as light. Being a writer, this has always fascinated me. Because I am them and they are me and we are all the fucking walrus, in this together. ‘Til the end times.



Which artist(s) gave you the best interview?

I’m not big on rankings or lists but memorable chats were Nikki Sixx on his New York hotel floor in ’89, the Slash RIP snake cover rap at the guitarist’s house in the Hollywood Hills and later with Jeffrey Ressner at a local restaurant for our Rolling Stone cover story; Chris Cornell in Denver the night we hitched a ride back to the hotel with two fans in the parking lot after the Skid Row/Pantera/Soundgarden concert. Phillip passed a joint around on stage during the encore where Bas and Chris joined in. Cornell was not a big pot smoker and his buzz got him impatient after the gig. He wanted to leave and his band mates were still in the arena hanging out. So I suggested the adventure. Let’s just walk out in the parking lot and find a ride with fans. It was so Almost Famous long before Cameron scripted the Topeka party sequence; Brian Johnson in his room at the Four Seasons in 2000 for KNAC.COM; Rob Halford on my Breath Of Fire radio show for KNAC.COM when he confessed he’d had both UFO and paranormal ghost encounters; Geoff Tate in London. Sammy Hagar at the Ritz in Chicago. David Lee Roth in the driveway of his father’s San Marino home. Tyler on the floor of my office at Flynt. Jimmy Page at the Bel Age. They’re all Golden Gods to me, and they’re all on drugs (laughs).



You wrote some famous articles on Bon Jovi (inc. the December 1992 RIP cover story ‘Bon Jovi: Born Again’) when was the last time you spoke to Jon and Ritchie Sambora?

I wrote the bio for the new All American Rejects LP, When The World Comes Down. Spending three months with these stellar lads from Oklahoma, watching their creative process, calling them friends was my enjoyable project of 2007, along with the Black Tide and Rev Theory interviews. The new kids, their youthful exuberance and reverence for the band and era that I reported so intimately on, reignited my metal pen, so to speak. When I sat down with Black Tide, I was told Gabriel had never done a real sit down and was uncomfortable with interviews. He was only 15 for God’s sake. Before the session, I handed each member of the band a Xerox of Jim Morrison’s college transcript, which I’ve had in my archives since working in the U.C.L.A. Registrar’s office after graduating in ’79. They were all big Doors fans. But for Gabe, I had something special. My laminate from the GN’R/Metallica stadium tour replete with a photo RIP’s bearded editor on the back. Gabe’s father took me aside after the interview and told me his son had never opened up like that or seemed so comfortable, which made me feel very good. Musicians by nature don’t like doing press. Why not make the experience as enjoyable and enlightening as possible?
Anyway Jon Bon Jovi loves the Rejects – and they share the same powerful agency, CAA - so they scored two nights at the Garden in New York opening for the BJ. I sat behind the stage night one with my buddy Larry, a huge Jersey bred fan. At one point in the set, Jon came to the back railing behind the Riser and saw me. There was eye contact and he flashed that Svengali smile with an affectionate nod. After the gig, I spent some time with Richie. He had a little hospitality area set up for his mom and some friends. I couldn’t help but notice how much his new girlfriend resembled Heather, whom I’ve adored since she was married to Tommy Lee. When she and Richie broke up, that bummed me out, like oh shit, if this marriage fails, then all of ‘em are in trouble. I remember watching her in the pit on numerous occasions. She took her spot right under Richie and glared lovingly at him the entire gig. Rock star unions are fraught with peril for obvious reasons. Anyway, Sambora and me hadn’t seen each other in three years since the Joint in Las Vegas’ 10th Anniversary where Bon Jovi did a set in the parking lot and we all watched Nine Inch Nails together from the balcony. Jon’s wife, Dorthea, was visibly aroused by Trent. It was a good hang. Richie was always the one I was closest to in the band. A kindred spirit. We stood on the stage together after the Garden had emptied and took a photo.



What were they like to interview?

All the guys were open and transparent and easy to rap with except Jon. He was always guarded, mindful of his appearance and presentation. Like Mick Jagger, Jon leaves nothing to chance. He’s a genius in that respect and a challenging interview for a reporter who’s come to expect and cherish honesty and candor. The best rap I ever had with Jon was when I was on the road in Europe with the band for three weeks in 2001 putting together a demo for a TV show I called, Rock A Mile With Lonn Friend. We were in Venice, a day off between Padova, Italy and Vienna, Austria. Jon and I took a boat to the Cipriani Hotel - a location he fondly recalled as the site of the U-571 wrap party – and drank pinot griggio. I rolled an hour of the most honest, naked, genuine Jon Bon Jovi you could imagine. A slice of it is in the edit of the demo that you can find on You Tube.



You were an A&R person at Arista. Who did you represent?

I signed The Bogmen the week I got there in ’94, a remarkable six piece from Long Island with a frontman that resembled Bono and Frank Sinatra on crack. We made two LPs before my contract was up and I (and they) were set off into the wilderness. I also oversaw the signing of Nerf Herder and had the EELS ready to close until Clive [Davis] said E wasn’t a star after the showcase I set up and that was pretty much the end of my A&R adventure at Arista.



What was it like being in the business rather than being an observer writing about the business?

I loathed the business, the egos, the marketing-minded bottom line conscious agendas that often trumped the essence of the music. I wrote countless memos to explain myself, why I felt this band or that was worthy of our precious attention. Like kangaroos in their own cloistered courtroom, the suits hopped from one act to the next, giving second’s not even minutes of evaluation time. A&R was maddening but also a great lesson. I learned about waste, self-entitlement, corporate credos. I also lived the high life with business class travel and fine dining up the ass. Since ’98 when that gig ended, I’ve been on a path of self-examination and discovery. Ten years of Kundalini yoga has altered my view of the world beyond the business. I don’t think I could ever work inside a company again. I haven’t in six years. Freelance is rough on the bank account but an elixir to the soul. And I would not be the writer I am today had I not suffered like Job in the wake of the Clive experience. Riding high in April shot down in May. That’s life.



Who were/are your favourite music writers?

Because I didn’t read a lot of mags, I never developed an alignment to any single scribe. I hold Harvey Kubernik and Bob Lefsetz in current high esteem. I’ve shamefully not read enough Lester Bangs or Chet Flippo, though the latter’s anthology, Everybody Was Kung Fu Dancing, provided the early structural inspiration for Life On Planet Rock. Last June, while attending the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee as background for my Dec ‘08 Metallica Metal Edge cover story, I met Chet for lunch in Nashville. He told me a great Rolling Stones ’72 tour story and fed me some wicked local BBQ.



What made you decide to write your autobiography Life On Planet Rock?

I was going through divorce, living in the desert, decomposing like a brittle leaf on a burned out summer lawn and one day I stared at all the documents I had in my laptop, stuff that was never published, just musings and essays. It wasn’t a book and had no theme or narrative. But during the literary process of putting a proposal together, shopping and landing a deal, and then assembling a bunch of anecdotes, a memoir evolved.



For whatever reason is there anything you didn’t include in the book? Or would you say it’s “warts ‘n all”?

Planet Rock is far from warts and all. During the big revision where I drafted more than a hundred new pages, some material was lost either by editing or my own personal re-thinking. Truth be told, some of the stuff that would have sold more copies would have been difficult for my daughter to digest and no being in this life or the next means more to me than Megan. She is the one perfect accomplishment of my journey in his incarnation. I took the high road because my spiritual teachings for a decade have tutored that mindset. My mom loathes Jon Bon Jovi. She thinks a lot of millionaire musicians have taken advantage of me. I feel gratitude for the peaks and the valleys and the last five years, I’ve discovered the essence of friendship. When you’re the most influential voice in hard rock music for eight years, everyone kisses your ass and calls you buddy. When you’re broke from divorce and don’t have a business card anymore, it separates the human wheat from the chafe. The fans have kept me going, their messages, emails, amazing compositions of support and love. To that end, my cup runneth over. And there are so many great, beautiful rockers I still hold close to my heart. Walking around the NAMM show in Anaheim this weekend I encountered so many familiar faces and felt the love. The support remains strong. Nothing means more to me than relationships, be they artist, executive, anyone whose crossed your path and made a difference. Rex and Pepper from Down grabbed me off the convention floor while they’re signing autographs and I sat and rapped with fans as they passed though. It was awesome, the kind words about my memoir or remembrances of what RIP meant to these amazing, loyal metal fans. I’m feeling really positive now about future media ventures and especially the RIP coffee table book concept. I want it to reflect the old school and the new who wouldn’t be where they are, living the dream, without Maiden, Slayer, Anthrax, Metallica, Priest, Motorhead. Next generation rockers from various genres show up on my radar all the time, seeking advice, bios, just an ear to hear what they’ve been making in their home studio. I broker deals and consult, connecting folks bent on expression who’re looking for a way into a system that is constantly changing. That service fulfils me. If I can get help people find Katy Pfaffl or Ruby James or L.A.’s Cockpit – three unsigned entities deserving of a shot right now – that’s a blessing. I’m working with a singer from Rochester, New York, named Kris Hadlock, who eats and sleeps the Bon Jovi rock star dream. In fact, he has songs that are so ‘80s metal authentic, you feel like you’re in a time warp listening to them. It won’t be easy finding a way into the machine but Kris’ passion is so strong, I wouldn’t bet against him.



Have you received any feedback from those artists who feature in the book (such as JBJ and Sambora)?

None. I have no idea who’s read the book except those artists who’ve directly mentioned it to me and there have been several. But I’ve dropped enough names in this interview already and I’m really working on that bad habit.



Was writing the book a therapeutic experience?

Absolutely. I’m not ashamed to report that I’ve battled with manic depression and oft times, what eliminated my anxiety was merely sitting in front of the laptop and tapping whatever came forth. Before blogs, I was sending 1,000 word email rants to my mailing list. Since launching my My Space in 2005, I’ve posted almost 90 blogs. There’s a book right there. It’s some of the best writing I’ve ever done because it was uncompensated and unassigned. Stream of conscious midnight rambles. Gems and turds. Existential, self –effacing, transparent. What did Dylan says? “When you’ve got nothing, you’ve not nothing left to lose/You’re invisible, you’ve got no secrets to conceal.”



How long did it take you to write the book? Did you have to research anything maybe because you’d forgotten such and such happened?

It took about two years and I had invaluable help from online music scribe, Tony Kuzminski, a Chicago fan and musicologist who began writing me in 2000 at KNAC.COM. He has evolved into quite a journalist with an enormous blog file at antimusic.com and elsewhere. Tony fact checked every page of Planet Rock.



Will there be a sequel?

I’ve been contemplating that for some time. The Moons Of Planet Rock: Further Journeys On The Rock N’ Roll Road Less Travelled, something like that. A more eclectic collection given my passion for music spans the galaxy of styles. I’ve got about a dozen chapters near completion, B-sides of the memoir or other meanderings. I would love to see my ‘Dreaming Of Kate’ tale published being an archetype Kate Bush fan.



Can you tell me about some of the radio and TV work you’ve done recently?

I just finished consulting and being interviewed for two documentaries, Rock Wives for E! Entertainment, and an upcoming 80s Metal Sunset Blvd. production for VH1. I also contributed to a new UK-produced DVD on Tool where I pretty much articulated the link between King Crimson and Maynard’s dark and delicious outfit. Without shame, I am a proud, dyed in the British wool prog rocker, bred on Genesis, Camel and Gentle Giant. It’s very cool having Derek Shulman as a personal friend. Who’d of thought the lead singer for the most avant-garde prog ensemble in history would be the guy to discover and sign Bon Jovi? Life’s a fucking mystery, top to bottom.



Are there any rock stars you haven’t met (yet) but would like to?

Bono, Coner Oberst, Thom Yorke, Jack White, Bob Weir, Citizen Cope – off the top of my pointed head.



What kind of advice would you give to aspiring rock scribes?

Worship and wax accordingly about the music and remember that the musician is human, flawed and disconnected. And if you get the opportunity to break bread with these characters, don’t confront – communicate.



What are your future projects?

I’m shopping a radio talk show demo that Slash and Steve Lukather, two of my dearest long-term friends in the musician clique - came in and recorded with me. I want the airwaves back, Joey Ramone if you can hear me. Got a lot to say and teach; the artists deserve a place to hang and rap with a kindred dysfunctional spirit. Not to promote product but to shake the tree, as Peter Gabriel would say. Now that you’ve got me thinking about it again, I should get that Planet Rock sequel done. But the RIP coffee table project is front and center. Dave Grohl says he’ll kick my ass if I don’t get that book done. Times like these, eh?



Interview by Neil Daniels 2008

here's the pleasure of close-reading texts:
In truth, politeness is artificial good humor, it covers the natural want of it, and ends by rendering habitual a substitute nearly equivalent to the real virtue. It is the practice of sacrificing to those whom we meet in society all the little conveniences and preferences which will gratify them, and deprive us of nothing worth a moment's consideration; it is the giving a pleasing and flattering turn to our expressions which will conciliate others, and make them pleased with us as well as themselves. How cheap a price for the good will of another! When this is in return for a rude thing said by another, it brings him to his senses, it mortifies and corrects him in the most salutary way, and places him at the feet of your good nature in the eyes of the company. But in stating prudential rules for our government in society I must not omit the important one of never entering into dispute or argument with another.

Is it Oscar Wilde's remark about education of woman, ' to live 10 years with a man... is enough of it...' or something like that...
After reading that biography of Jefferson, if I were to be asked to pick out his private sins' or intellectual compromises among all other public virtues, two factual incidents, whence in one Jefferson elected peace over justice and the other public injustice over private justice. 1. In regards of the peculiar death of his mentor George Wythe and his slave Michael Brown whom Wythe entrusted Jefferson as a guardian upon his death in his will. 2. In a letter from Abigail Adams to Jefferson, she professed about the reason of a once-broken friendship between John Adams and Jefferson. Luckily, they explained how their public enmity occurs and for the right reason on each side before they both expired in 1826 through approximately 380 letters preserved.

不能忘却的紀念 by Ruan Ming

2016年6月1日,李洪林告別了這個世界,仲兵兄來函囑我寫一點話。

提起李洪林,不能忘却1976年10月後那個思想解放天空中群星閃耀的年代,李洪林是其中一顆明亮的星。當那段歷史被胡喬木、鄧力群代表的「偽史學派」抹去時,胡耀邦説:

~~粉碎四人幫這兩年,我已向歷史學家提出,現在開始寫這兩年歷史,叫做「撥亂反正的日日夜夜」。多少好同志,多少英雄,夜以繼日,用全部精力為撥亂反正、扭轉乾坤作出貢獻。用文學語言,我們是在奔騰前進的時代列車上,這個時代列車是開足馬力前進的。面對這個奔騰前進的時代,是冷眼旁觀,還是當促進派?每個人都要經得住歷史檢驗,誰在這個時代列車上真正為人民,為我們子孫後代搞點有出息的東西,留下一點痕跡,就是好樣的。

1977年胡耀邦調我到中央黨校時,有一次談話中提到,要把李洪林調到身邊幫他讀書。我聽了有點訝異,那時他身邊只有一個年輕秘書梁金泉,我叫他小梁,胡耀邦工作愈來愈重,小梁也忙得不可開交,我想李洪林該是當他的大秘書吧?胡耀邦却說幫他讀書。

胡耀邦談他自己:「文革雖挨整,但有較多時間讀書,列寧全集,朱生豪翻譯的莎士比亞全集,都讀完一遍,馬恩全集沒有來得及讀完。現在工作忙了起來,要讀的書又多,想找個人幫我選擇,和我一起讀,李洪林在歷史博物館,讀書多,文章也寫得好,我得請他來。」

聽小梁説,李洪林來耀邦身邊工作的房間都準備好了,最後沒有來。我問何因?原來是鄧力群反對,胡耀邦就作罷了。

類似的事我也不時遇到,我為「理論動態」組稿,周揚復出後的一些講話很精彩,比如講魯迅的,我編好給胡耀邦,他定稿發表前,要小梁送胡喬木看看,之後未見登出。問小梁,是胡喬木不同意發,說「周揚名譽不好」。明明是惡意攻擊,胡耀邦為什麼要聽?我不懂。然而胡喬木、鄧力群是胡耀邦「奔騰前進」的絆腳石,顯而易見。

李洪林雖未到胡耀邦身邊,這顆星依然閃亮。「科學與迷信」、「領袖與人民」、「讀書無禁區」,一道道鋒利的思想光芒,射向思想文化專制主義黑暗的角落,讓禁錮在精神與物質牢獄中的囚徒心中燃起希望之火。其中在理論工作務虛會上的發言「領袖與人民」影響最大,導致全國因涉及批評領袖而獲罪者紛紛寄信給李洪林申訴,李洪林把申訴信轉到中央和地方政府,使他們冤獄獲得平反。

1979年胡耀邦出任中央宣傳部長,終於把他心目中的理論闖將李洪林調進中宣部理论局。他在见到李洪林時说:「你做了一件大好事,救人一命勝造七级浮屠,你救了好幾百人哪!」

一年後胡耀邦在五中全會當選政治局常委和總書記,中宣部長由書記處書記王任重接任。王任重雖在農委工作時反對過包產到戶被認為有「左」的偏向,但在思想理論戰缐堅持雙百方針,李洪林也繼續邀請理論界朋友到中宣部參加座談,探討理論問題,或組織寫一些文章。一次為配合「周恩來選集」出版,他約我寫了一篇「為人民世紀而奮鬥」,在發表出版消息那天登了「工人日報」。沒有想到這樣一篇「應景」文章,竟會觸動胡喬木、鄧力群的神經。

胡喬木首先發難,打電話給「人民日報」、新華社、電台,此文不准轉載和播發;跟着鄧力群整成「阮銘同志的幾個政治觀點」,登上他主編的「情況簡報」。其中引了文中的話:

~~一個人原來是接觸群眾的,到身居高位之後,身邊總有一群包圍者,把他圍得水洩不通。那結果,是使別人看見的並非在位者的本相,而是經過包圍者的曲折而顯現的幻影。這包圍者的力量,在對下代表權力,對上代表民意,想打擊誰,抬高誰,吃掉誰,可以胡亂地矯詔,任意地造謠,都無往而不勝。一旦在位者倒下,便離開這株已倒的大樹,去包圍別個新的在位者。

在引文之後鄧力群質問:「作者顯然是提出了政治生活中的現實問題。人們不禁要問:這些話是影射什麼人呢?是要給人們暗示什麼呢?」

馮文彬對我說,胡喬木找他問:「阮銘講的包圍,不會是無所指的,不知指誰?」

我説,文章是中宣部理論局配合「周恩來選集」出版,李洪林約我寫的,他審稿後分配給「工人日報」發表。文中引了魯迅關於「包圍」的話,為表達周恩來能突破「包圍」直接面對人民,倒不是為「影射」或「暗示」胡喬木和鄧力群,想不到他們自己來對號入座了。

那是1981年1月初的事,那一年胡喬木、鄧力群開始發動第一波反自由化運動。那段歷史的轉折點,是1980年國際上發生的波蘭團結工會事件。

1976年10月到1980年10月那四年,是中國政治、經濟、社會、文化的大變革年代。那是粉碎四人幫後大群改革闖將衝破重重阻力,在各條戰掀起改革開放大潮的奔騰歲月。早在11屆3中全會之前開展的真理標準討論、平反冤假錯案、開放西單民主牆、開放報刋對官僚特權的批評揭露、開放學術文化領域的自由討論,這一切難道不是改治改革、社會改革、文化改革?後來所謂「先經濟、後政治」的「中國特色」,是胡喬木、鄧力群們顛倒歷史的偽造。

鄧小平是1977年7月復出的,開始分管教育與科學。在改革開放大潮中,他基本上是順應潮流前進的。例如1978年12月,鄧小平臨時廢棄胡喬木、朱佳木為他起草的「啣接」無產階級專政下繼續革命理論的三中全會講稿,委托胡耀邦重新組織班子起草符合歷史前進潮流的講話。又如1980年5月和8月,鄧小平接受李維漢建議,放棄「興無滅資」口號,認同肅清封建專制主義遺毒,提出「黨和國家領導制度的改革」。

1980年7月發生了波蘭團結工會事件,鄧小平和胡耀邦當時一致認為波蘭人民有反抗俄羅斯侵略壓迫的傳統,波蘭工人抗爭是正義的,教訓是必須堅持改革,波蘭每次改革都因不敢得罪蘇聯退回老路才導致危機不斷。他們肯定中國不會發生那種危機,一是中國向來獨立自主,不屈從任何覇權;二是人民支持改革開放路線,接受波蘭事件教訓應當更加堅定徹底改革的決心。

然而正當舉國上下討論改革黨和國家領導制度之際,胡喬木在9月24日寫了一封「關於波蘭危機的信」,提出「中國也可能爆發波蘭那樣的局勢,必須像毛澤東在1956年波匈事件發生時那樣制定對策」;接着傳達陳雲指示,「一個宣傳方面,一個經濟方面,這兩個方面不注意,中國也會發生波蘭那樣的危機。」他們利用「波蘭危機」發難,目的是顛覆改革開放路線和五中全會建立的新領導體制。

1980年2月的11屆5中全會,是中央領導體制改革的開端。葉劍英在會上作主題發言,對建立黨的「集體領導」和「集體接班」制度,糾正「權力過度集中於個人」的歷史錯誤作了說明。他說:

~~成立中央书记处,我考虑是准备接集体的班,不是接哪一个人的班。这个问题,斯大林没有解决,他看上一个马林科夫,很快被赫鲁晓夫篡权。毛主席对集体接班问题考虑少,侧重于个人接班。九大把林彪当接班人写进党章,林彪摔死了,又提王洪文当接班人。实践证明这样做是失败的。任何时候都不能夸大个人作用,不能个人说了算。象我们这样一个执政的大党,如果突出个人、独断专行,一定要犯错误,带来严重危害,这方面是有惨痛教训的。

葉劍英用馬林科夫被赫魯曉夫篡權的典故,表明他憂心所在。他指出設立中央書記處,不是八大書記處的簡單恢復,是從制度上改變從斯大林到毛澤東「一個人指定自己接班人」的舊傳統,建立「集體領導」和「集體接班」的新傳統。五中全㑹增補了兩名年紀較輕的政治局常委胡耀邦和趙紫陽,加上華國鋒,三個較年輕的對四個老人(葉劍英、鄧小平、李先念、陳雲),比過去「四老」對一個華國鋒,是相對平𧗾的集體領導體制。

三個較年輕的常委中,胡耀邦任總書記,趙紫陽準備接國務院總理,就是分散華國鋒的權力,解決「個人權力過分集中」的問題,建立華國鋒、胡耀邦、趙紫陽的「集體接班」體制。華、胡、趙是第二代,加上今後從書記處選拔上來的人,集體接第一代葉、鄧、李、陳的班。葉劍英的出發點是通過接班制度改革避免重演歷史上更換接班人的權力鬥爭丿。

胡喬木、鄧力群和專政派老人看出了這一㸃,他們利用「波蘭危機」和四千高級幹部討論「建國以來若干歷史問題的決議」發難,目的正是顛覆五中全會建立的新領導體制,實現權力再分配。

1980年11月10日至12月5日,中央政治局連續舉行九次會議,書記處書記列席會議,鄧力群連候補中央委員都不是,也「列席」了。鄧力群自己説,「我們列席會議的,沒有發言權,聽會」。然而「聽會」者的作用超越了「與會」者,鄧力群把政治局會上「聽」來的,與四千人討論「歷史決議」串聯起來,達到「拱倒」華國鋒的目的。

鄧力群先到中國社會科學院黨委常委會宣講華國鋒的錯誤,講了半天。接著又去中央辦公廳黨委和中央直屬機關黨委講了三個多小時,羅列華國鋒「七大罪狀」。他在「十二個春秋」中坦承:「我當時對華國鋒的評價,若干意見有欠公允,為了拱倒一個人,不論是大人物,還是小人物,把他的差錯統統列上,有些不是政治原則問題,講得過於上綱了。」

「建國以來若干歷史問題的決議」,本來是指1949年10月至1976年9月的毛澤東主政時期,起草中胡喬木加了一段粉碎四人幫後的四年。討論中制發生分歧。華國鋒説,「第一個歷史問題決議只寫到抗日戰爭之前,毛主席的理由是抗日戰爭還在進行,還不是歷史嘛!」鄧小平和胡耀邦也說,這一段先不寫,可以在四千人討論決議時徵求一下意見。

然而鄧力群「拱倒」華國鋒的宣講,從政治局會議之外透過四千人討論「歷史問題決議」反射到政治局會議之內,會上批判華國鋒的聲浪不斷升級,使原來不贊成變動五中全會建立的新領導體制的葉劍英、李先念、胡耀邦、趙紫陽等備受壓力。

華國鋒自然有錯誤,如「兩個凡是」、「打擊政治謠言的通知」導致新的冤假錯案等。他在三中全會之前的中央工作會議上作過檢討,三中全會後改正了錯誤並拒絕了胡喬木游說反右。

政治局會議批華國鋒也波及葉劍英,如稱「英明領袖」和所謂「徘徊的兩年」。葉剑英未予正面回應,他從回顧毛泽东临终對他欲言未语的情景,談了自己的思路歷程。最後他説:

~~華國锋同志犯错误,我有责任,如果他不愿承担,由我承担好了。所有中央这四年来的错误,都是我造成的,你们怨我、批评我都可以。我早就提出辞职,今天这个会上再提一遍,我请求党中央让我离休,这是我雷打不动的意见。

華國鋒在最後一天会上的提出六中全会批准他的辭呈之前不再主持中央政治局、中央常委和中央军委的工作,提议由叶剑英担任中央主席和军委主席。華國鋒後來說:「我是不願党内再鬥争,老百姓遭殃。我坚决辞掉一切职务,事先和葉帅说了。有说我傻瓜,有说我太老实,我没有后悔。」

政治局會議「拱倒」華國鋒,表面看是胡耀邦和鄧小平分別代理黨和軍委主席;實質是全盤顛覆五中全會的「集體領導」和「集體接班」體制,為後来少數人推翻全國黨代表大會選出的最高領導人開了惡例。

1982年3月,王任重鍳於一年多來「反自由化」使原本活躍的理論工作陷入倒退,在與胡耀邦交換意見後召開「理論座談會」。王任重在第一天會議上說:「現在理論工作的主要問題是同改革開放實踐不適應,不適應這三個字是耀邦同志講的。我們這次會議實行三不主義,絕不秋後算賬。」

王任重沒有料到,會議開到第五天,3月20日,鄧力群就來算王任重的賬了。那一天鄧力群突然出現在座談會各組召集人會議上,要會議傳達胡喬木「關於全國面臨嚴重階級鬥爭」的講話。胡喬木在講話中說:

~~我們面臨第四次重大思想鬥爭。第一次國共合作,陳獨秀犯右傾錯誤。第二次國共合作,又有王明右傾錯誤。笫三次全國解放,資產階級糖衣砲彈。現在是第四次,抵制資產階級自由化。現在階級鬥爭沒有引起足夠注意,存在資產階級思想倡狂進攻。過去說赫魯曉夫利令智昏,現在我們黨內確實有利令智昏。

大家不清楚鄧力群要幹什麼?其實他已抓住座談會上馬沛文的發言作為「資產階級思想猖狂進攻」的例證,準備向王任重奪權了。

馬沛文為郭羅基的文章「誰之罪」(談張志新文革中被殺害事)辯護,對郭被勒令離開北京表示異議。鄧力群以此挑撥鄧小平,稱「王任重召開會議鼓動理論界向中央猖狅進攻,郭羅基文章影射攻擊小平同志會議不予批駁;王任重還肯定會議各抒己見𣈱所欲言,這樣下去將造成不可收拾的混亂局面」!

鄧小平聽了鄧力群䜛言當即拍板決定由鄧力群接管中宣部,讓他去「通知」黨主席兼總書記胡耀邦「立即執行」。胡耀邦被迫召開中央書記處會議,請「列席」會議的鄧力群「傳達」軍委主席鄧小平的「決定」,通過任命這位連候補中央委員也從未當過的黨員鄧力群當中央宣傳部長,去奪中央書記處書記、現任中央宣傳部長王任重的權。這是中共歷史上破天荒的大笑話。

1982年3月23日,鄧力群上午趕到理論座談會現場發表長篇演說「我們的旗幟是共產主義」,下午又趕到中央宣傳部發表「就職演說」。鄧力群宣布,他到中宣部最重要一條是「同中央保持一致,誰做不到,隨時歡送,概不挽留」。這樣,他打擊誰,陷害誰,就給扣上「同中央不一致」的罪名,李洪林就是這樣被「歡送」走的。

我到美國時,李洪林已被「歡送」出中宣部,在項南主政的福建省任社會科學院長,後來項南被陳雲整了下來,李洪林的院長也免掉了。再後來,得悉六四後李洪林身陷囹圄,深為他擔憂。

李洪林出獄後,曾偕夫人張茂英來美國,我們都在新澤西州,時常來往,相聚甚歡。那時才知道洪林兄多才多藝,詩詞、書法、繪畫、篆刻無所不能。他給我刻過一枚印章,又贈我一條幅,上書一絕云:

一枝獨秀領群芳,
有筆如椽譜新章,
無奈廟堂尊瓦缶,
遂使黃鐘落異鄕。

一九九五年春時在新澤西書贈阮銘兄

我們一起回憶往昔,也探討過胡耀邦悲劇的根源在哪裡?胡耀邦的改革開放思路,從農村到城市、從國內關係到國際關係、從政治經濟到社會文化,有長遠的全盤考量。他改變中國的理想抱負,遠遠沒有實現。最後想把他多年的思考寫下留給後人,也未能如願就匆匆走了。這個損失是無法彌補的。

在開闢中國歷史新時期的十年,胡耀邦走過的路可略分為三段:

1977到1980四年,胡耀邦在中央黨校、在中央組織部、在中央宣傳部,在書記處,工作大體上還順利,雖遭汪東興、胡喬木、鄧力群、郭玉峯們阻撓,他總能排除干擾「開足馬力奔騰前進」。

1981到1984四年,從「反自由化」到「清除精神污染」,前進的阻力愈來愈大。1983年胡耀邦提出各條戰線要全面、系統地改革。陳雲、胡喬木、鄧力群們即發動第一次「倒胡」。胡喬木那時以為自己要取代胡耀邦當總書記了,到胡耀邦家裡激動地說,「你下來我們友誼不變」。後來葉劍英在廣東與鄧小平通話堅決反對,鄧小平才讓胡喬木、鄧力群「封存」全部「倒胡」黒材料。

胡耀邦當時的處境,可以說是在逆風中艱難行進。他走遍全國,是寄希望於人民發揮主動性,根從地方的自然環境、歷史傳統和經濟文化社會條件,走出自己的現代化之路;再也不能不顧自身條件,走「全國學大寨」、「全國學大慶」、「全國一盤棋」的老路。陳雲因此批胡耀邦「講地方話」,表揚趙紫陽講「北京話」。事實上胡耀邦被推上黨主席兼總書記位置那一刻(1980年12月),「拱倒」胡耀邦的黨內鬥爭就開始準備,了。

1984年12屆3中全會胡耀邦主持起草「經濟體制改革決定」,是撤銷胡喬木、鄧力群控制的袁木起草小組,責成林澗青重組起草小組,拒絕胡喬木、鄧力群插手才取得的成就,被鄧小平稱作「馬克思主義與中國實踐結合的政治經濟學,是一大發明創造」。那是鄧小平對胡耀邦的最後一次肯定。

那時鄧力群因發動「清除精神污染」在國內外臭名遠揚,鄧小平也一度表示胡喬木、鄧力群替他寫的那篇12屆2中全會講話不要收進「鄧小平文集」。可是胡耀邦一方面設法阻止鄧力群的「清污」在全國氾濫成災,另一方面却在會見外賓時請鄧力群陪同並為之洗刷惡名,讓他得以再度反撲過來。

最後一段是1985和1986兩年,胡喬木、鄧力群已與專政派老人結成龐大的「倒胡聯盟」,到1986年12屆6中全會討論胡耀邦主持起草的「精神文明決議」時發難,終將胡耀邦淹沒於反自由化大潮之中。

歷史給了胡耀邦改變中國的機會,胡耀邦也夜以繼日全力以赴,為什麼最終會失敗?

李洪林指出他未能集合和保護與他理念一致、幫他衝鋒陷陣的改革派群星,以至一個個被反改革的專政派「拱倒」,使自己陷於孤掌難鳴的絕境,以至「生活會」遭圍攻時只剩習仲勛一人為他鳴不平。

我想起初到中央黨校時聽胡耀邦説的兩句話:一句是「換思想不換人」;叧一句是「害人之心不可有,防人之心也不可有」。結果怎樣呢?那時我在黨校聽到不少人言必稱「康老」,一段時間後,他們確實改了口,言必稱「耀邦」了。後來王震來當校長清算胡耀邦「包庇、縦容自由化」時,他們又言必稱「王老」了,事實是「換人就換思想」。

胡耀邦從不害人,也不防人。有人說他天真,「是好人不是政治家」。吳江勸他讀「堯俞傳」,學堯俞。還有人說,「胡耀邦是良心,趙紫陽是大腦」。我感到奇怪,難道大腦可以與良心分離,可以有不要真誠、不要良心的政治家嗎?

胡耀邦是與人民的心、與人民的實踐緊緊相連的理想主義政治家,他最厭惡虛偽政治。他的實踐是開創中國歷史新時期真誠為人民謀幸福的新政治。他的「換思想不換人」、「防人之心也不可有」,是出於珍視人性的光明面,或不忍看到人性的黑暗面,因而自缷盔甲,期待團結一切人共同跨進一個新時代。

記得黎澍說過,毛澤東在延安稱讚胡喬木是「思想改造最好、靈魂最美的知識分子」。黎澍稱這種知識分子改造是「製造偽君子」。偽君子們自然善於操弄虛偽政治,必與真誠為敵。自缷盔甲的胡耀邦被他們的暗箭射中,是不可避免的了。

幾年前我讀了尼布爾(Reinhold Niebuhr) 1944年的著作「光明之子與黑暗之子」(The Children of Light and The Children of Darkness),似乎可以解答胡耀邦的悲劇。尼布爾説:

~~光明之子渴望實現愛與同情的理想、弘揚正義,然而他們經常天真、善良、笨拙,相信正義可以通過勸誡實現,政治可以符合愛的理想,他們對自己的對手、對人性的黑暗面,都不太清楚。

~~黑暗之子是惡的源泉,然而他們是明智的,懂得在眾多的利益中去爭奪權力。耶穌的話:黑暗之子比光明之子在世務中更明智和歷練。

胡耀邦是「光明之子」,對他的改革事業樂觀和自信,以為憑正義和勇氣、憑人民的支持就可以實現理想,對「黑暗之子」的環伺不以為意,失去警覺和防備,以致出乎意料的被襲擊和傷害。

尼布爾還說:「霍布士只看到人性的黑暗,所以認為自由民主制度不可行,而洛克看不到人性的黑暗,所以認為自由民主制度完全符合發揮人的創造天性。然而人性既有創造力,也有破壞力。所以歷史有前進,也有倒退。」

今年是胡耀邦去世二十七週年。這二十七年來,歷史有前進,也有倒退。回顧那個思想解放年代的燦爛群星,跟着胡耀邦的隕落,周揚、陸定一、胡績偉、王若水、王元化、黎澍、戈揚、朱厚澤·⋯⋯,到今天的李洪林,一顆顆在漫漫長夜裡逝去了。而胡喬木、鄧力群們孕育出來的「黑暗之子」,如同這二十七年來在中國大地升起的黑色霧霾,遮蔽了,思想文化界的天空。

紀念李洪林,不能忘記歷史的教訓。胡耀邦的「換思想不換人」、「防人之心也不可有」,可以是新時代新政治的一種道德理想。但也必須看到,「黑暗之子」和人性黑暗面的普遍存在,不㑹因「光明之子」的「善」而自動退隱。

今天中國需要大群建設光明中國的「光明之子」,他們需要有理想、有智慧和勇氣驅逐阻擋歷史史前進的黑色霧霾 ;同時也不忘在前進的征途上戴上「頭盔」和「護心鏡」,警覺與防備「黑暗之子」從霧霾中射來的暗箭。
I wonder if Errors are increased or stays the same since last run? maybe I can 'bother' bloggers for their assistance?
