也是小農

9月17日蘋果日報的陶傑短評,將古宅景賢里的業主比喻為「一個賊佬」,因被保育人士「暗中報警」,於是便馬上拆卸古宅(陶傑的原文是﹕「殺了他的老母,姦了他的妹子」)。

這個是一個極盡煽情、同時亦是十分不知所謂的比喻。景賢里的業主不是賊佬,他是用真金白銀買下景賢里的。

你可以罵該名業主滿身銅臭、毫無品味,但他只不過是擔心自己的投資,會因被政府列為「古蹟」而化為烏有罷了。

擔心自己的投資不等於可以不理一切拆掉一切
即使被政府列為「古蹟」也不一定不能使用,發展

原文是︰「有 華 文 評 論 指 , 拆 景 賢 里 , 元 兇 是 保 育 人 士 ....如 此 邏 輯 , 如 同 這 位 評 論 人 的 家 , 被 一 個 賊 佬 進 去 了 ...」

陶生針對的是文章作者, 而非業主.

OEWN,

陶傑批判有評論人小農思想︰以為不報警就天下太平;這也是黃牛一貫之信仰︰最好乜賊都唔能關政府事。

所以陶傑係踐到條黃牛尾。

i absolutely agree with yellow cow 100%. i really wonder why so many people are criticising the landlord? has anyone wonder why the landlord would have done such a thing? frankly, if the govt is going to confiscate your house tomorrow simply because it is beautiful, what would you have done?

i guess the simplest way is for the govt to buy it at market price. but then....who's gonna pay, stupid....

有人天真到將地權看成無限制絕對產權,不曉得地權只不過是政府/統治者批出的有限擁有權,這個權若有必要,民主政府是可經立法程序收回的,專權政府是可強制收回的。

you still don't get it, do you?
of course, the land use right is only a lease, but this right is worth millions and millions of dollars in this case....but that's not the point....
just imagine that one day, all your neighbors turn up at your door and said,"hey, your house is really beautiful, we like it a lot, and we decided that you cannot tear it down or sell it, you either continue to live in it, or fxxk off....."
i wonder how many of the so-called preservationists, on seeing their lifetime investments or financial assets confiscated overnight, can sit down calmly and say,"oh, it's the right thng to do.....i should give up my rights...." actually, if it were their properties on the line, i think they would definitely fight, protest, demonstrate, cry or even through violence means (yeah, right, only the police are violent.....you think we are blind?) to protect their assets.
the point is, if the property owner is to receive a fair compensation, would he have done what he did? you really think rich people are unscrupulous and have no conscience? only poor people are saints? i can assure you that if the poor's assets are threatened like this, they will certainly fight back, with 10 times effort because they have everything to loose....

what are the poor's assets?

poor people have power to make revolution as they have nothing to loose...

what are the poor's assets?! haha! well, take govt public housing. if one day, the govt decided to tear down a public housing estate to build a park because the area is too densely populated, you think the govt can just tell the poor people to move out, without relocating them? the fact is, the govt will face huge oppositions and endless demonstrations even with proper relocating arrangment!

"i've lived here for 20 years and knew everyone around! i don't want a new neighborhood!"
"build a park?! for the good of the society?! i don't fxxking care! i want my rights protected! you will build the park over my dead body...."
"to move to the new area, i'll have to spend $4 more per day on transportation, that's just too expensive....who's gonna pay for that? i won't move...."

and they are only tennants....

你們樂見產權擁有者無權處理私有財產嗎?

某人說租公共房屋住都是擁有資產,佢正一杏家都有資產。

古蹟唔一定不能使用及無發展潛力,例如如果故宮上市為主題公園企業,我一定申請入股支持。
