华社张贴:韦恩的基本收入计划难行其道
Basic income program: a capitalist road to communism

 
安省本周宣布基本收入试点计划,即4000名被选中的三市居民(Hamilton, Thunder Bay and Lindsay)在不须提供工作,受教育以及健康状况前提下可获得政府免费补贴。根据该计划,一名单身人士可获得上限为$17000的年收入,一对夫妻则可获得年收入上限高达$24,000。

Ontario has announced the basic income pilot program, which provides an Ontario adult a free handout without work, education, health eligibility requirements to 4000 selected residents in three pilot cities -- Hamilton, Thunder Bay and Lindsay. Under the project, a single person will receive an annual income of up to $17000 per year, and a couple could get up to $24,027 annually.

 
韦恩政府声称该计划可为低收入加人提供必要的生活保障,使他们在无论有无工作的情况下都可以藉此过上体面的生活。他们称该计划为体面而又合理的减贫方案,并可减少家庭暴力,削减工伤事故,同时还可提供更多受教育机会。

Wynne’s government claimed that the program can provide living necessities to low-income Canadians, allowing them to live in dignity regardless of job status. They touted it as dignified, streamlined solution to poverty, resulting in less domestic violence, fewer workplace injuries while providing increased access to education.  


在一个健康发展的社会里,每个人都必须通过自己的才干和技能为社会作出贡献。在开放型经济体制中,坐享其成者无权分享他人的劳动成果。而基本收入计划却与不合理的社会主义政策如出一辙:它准许那些不劳而获者掠夺辛勤耕耘者的财富,从而催生出一群滥用福利制度的可耻的寄生虫。

In a justified society, freeloaders would have no right to enjoy the fruits of the open economy, where individuals must contribute to it through their talent and skills. But the basic income program is an obscenely socialist policy that allows those who don’t work to take away from those who work extra hard, creating a large group of freeloaders abusing the system, freeloading off the hard work of others.  


有些学者形容基本收入计划是将资本主义领向共产主义,而其理念也已被证明后患无穷。在1950年代,中国曾激进地采取剥夺资本家和地主的资产和财产,而后“均分给穷人”的共产主义经济模式。其后果是经济危机随之而来,中国老百姓也因此陷入人类历史上最严重的大饥荒。

Basic income is described by some scholars as the capitalist road to communism, the ideology of which has proven detrimental. In the 1950’s, China aggressively adopted the communist economic model that resulted in assets and properties being deprived from capitalists and landlords and then “equally shared among the poor”. As a result, an economic crisis ensued and the Chinese people suffered the biggest famine in human history.  


那些因缺乏语言技能而在加拿大劳动力市场中面对黯淡就业前景的贫困移民可能会将每年向低收入者提供$22,000元的基本收入计划视为天上掉馅饼。但是对于大多数华裔移民来说,曾经将中国经济推向崩溃边缘的共产主义意识形态仍是他们挥之不去的梦魇。在许多人看来,这种激进的左翼政策极具方向性错误,应嘎然截止。

Providing $22,000 a year to low income earners may deem to be a boon to some underprivileged immigrants who faced tough job prospects in the Canadian labour markets due to a lack of language skills. But for many Chinese immigrants, they are still haunted by the communist ideology that had pushed the country’s economy to the brink of collapse. For many, this type of radical left-wing policy is a step in the wrong direction and should be nipped in the bud. 


许多人因此在中国社交媒体上以讽刺的语调发泄自己的不满。

Many have posted their dissatisfaction with a sarcastic tone on Chinese social media.


“超级福利来了!坐在家里不干活就可以拿到$2万多块。共产主义在加拿大实现了!”

“Super benefits have come back! You can get over $20,000 by staying at home. Communism has become a reality in Canada!”


自由党推出的基本收入计划正值其面临毁灭性的民调结果之时。民调结果显示省长韦恩和其自由党的支持率正在迅速下降。

The program comes at a time when the Ontario Liberals face devastating poll results that show the approval rating for Premiere Wynne and the Liberals in rapid decline.


如果韦恩是想藉基本收入计划笼络民心,以期在下届省选中再次赢得多数政府,那她可能错估了安省选民,尤其是华社成员们。以下是微信的一则张贴:

If Wynne wants to use the program as a ticket to the majority government in the next election, she may have miscalculated Ontario voters, especially from the Chinese community members. Here is a post on the WeChat”


“韦恩似乎是想毁了安省!”

“It seems that Katherine Wynne wants to destroy Ontario!”
