Notre Dame fire provokes deep thoughts
The world sighed after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris caught fire. Aside from French President Emmanuel Macron, leaders of major countries also paid tribute. It is rare that the world laments a disaster that has no heavy casualties. Notre Dame's value is shared far beyond France.
The loss of cultural relics is heartbreaking. But the unprecedented attention to the fire reflects t3d之家,圣母院大火后唏嘘和争议中的考虑,国海证券he influence and soft power 3d之家,圣母院大火后唏嘘和争议中的考虑,国海证券of French and European culture.
The French and Europeans should be more 罗大发confident as they can still be a powerhouse in current and future global competition.
In our opinion, the N贾铁男otre Dame fire should not have happened. Although an investigation may take a long time, the cathedral wasn't struck by external factors such as lightning, but burned, reflecting the poor management of relevant日本漫画无翼鸟 authorities in Paris. It's reported that the fire might have been caused by a short circuit on the roof. If the cultural r才川夫妻elics were devastated for this reason, it's unforgivable.
N张婧璇otre Dame is a cultural heri你色tage of all mankind and France has an obligation to protect it. There are many other world-class cultural relics in France. It is hard to be reassured if they are well protected from disaste作家夏七年rs.
Relevant offi爱宅cials should be held accountable for the fire. We believe we have the moral right to make this request.
People from third world countries would think: Why didn't the world feel the same pity for the Old City of Damascus that was damaged in the bomb attacks? Western people should try to empathize with such a situation. On Tuesday, fringe voices emerged in Chinese public opinion, saying the Notre Dame fire reminded them of the time the Old Summer Palace in Beiji黄色暴力ng was burned down by British and French troops during the Second Opium War. They opposed Chinese who expressed sympathy for the Notre Dame fire. But mainstream Chinese public opinion disagrees with this view.
The unexpected debate ov3d之家,圣母院大火后唏嘘和争议中的考虑,国海证券er the case partly shows that neither China nor the West has put that piece of history behind, and some Chinese people still feel hurt while Wester河秀彬ners keep measuring China through outdated ways. This makes it hard for Chinese and Western mindsets to integrate.
There was a time when a Western country suffered disasters, Chinese people would show overwhelming sympathy toward it. But later Western public opinion often showed partiality for tmystic妹妹errorists in the wake of deadly terror attacks on China, fringe voices that oppose expressing sympathy for disaster-hit Western countries have begun to appear.
If Westerners regard those voices as the indication of China's nationalism, that will be a shallow view. Chinese society i朱彦辉s big and diverse. It's inevitable that there will be some non-mainstream sentiments.
That the Notre Dame fire has immediately become a global focus reflects the unprecedented high level of globalization. But it hait小食哥s been mixed with much regret.
