参考答案(爱思网友版 新浪微博@少数派memetics

Life is like a glass of wine. Wonders never cease for those who truly enjoy it. If you hold the glass in your hand and observe the wine carefully, you can see its sanguine color just like our blood, a symbol of life. Take a sip and hold the wine in your mouth for its aromas and flavors as bittersweet as your life is complex and confused. Swallow the wine and let the aftertaste permeate every cell in your body and stay there enduringly. It is true that the older the vintage is, the better the wine tastes. Likewise, the richer one's life is, the better it becomes. When you are in your twilight years, it's just like a bottle of fine wine to be opened, deep and quiet in its color yet abundant in generosity and wisdom in its flavor.




Is a sound social environment necessary for people to have high moral standards and be good to others?


Is a sound social environment necessary for people to be good to others

Helping others has always been a virtue in traditional Chinese culture, but nowadays many people dare not offer help to those in need, for fear of getting into trouble. The issue has aroused public debate over the climate of morality and credibility, and many people sigh over the moral degeneration. In my opinion, while social environment is necessary for people to be good to others, each individual should try his or her best to do good deeds and be sympathetic with others, instead of waiting for the environment to improve.

There is no denying that some tragic events turn out to be traps by people with evil intentions, so people are becoming more risk-conscious and are more wary of traps and deceits. some people even wonder, ‘Is our society hostile to good people?’ The question may sound ridiculous but many people apparently think so. They believe that our current society provides a bad environment for good people doing good things, and good people pay a high price for being compassionate. In fact, such kind of things only accounts for a pretty small percentage, but massive media coverage makes the situation seem serious. Actually, most people around me are kind, warm-hearted and helpful, and I am quite delighted in their company. So I believe media should pay more attention to publicizing good people and exemplary deeds to enhance our confidence, rather than exposing disgusting behaviors.

At the same time, as John Donne puts it, “No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” Since everyone of us is a component of the society, it is each individual’s conducts that form social morality. Just imagine it is you who need help, what would you feel if everyone watches indifferently or suspiciously? So, put yourself in other’s position and be sympathetic. If we do nothing but wait for the environment to improve, nothing will happen. Only by removing the fence around our kind consciousness can we reverse the regress of social ethics, and make our world full of warmth and happiness. Therefore, if help is needed, never hesitate to lend a helping hand. It will make you happy and feel better about life.

In sum, I contend the idea that while social environment is necessary for people to be good to others, it is each individual’s responsibility to offer help to those in need, and together we build up a more harmonious society.
