平安经

Peace Mantra Book






2020
Oil on canvas
50x40 cm


In August 2020, a Senior Chinese police officer has been sacked after his book ‘Pingan Jing’, or Peace Mantra was ridiculed throughout the country.

The book is made up of blessings of peace and wellness for various aspects of life. One section for example prescribes blessings for the ages, starting from birth to 100 years old, saying: “peace at birth, peace at 1 month old, peace at 100 days old, peace at 1 year old, peace at 2 years old …”
It sparks heated discussion on “Abuse of power” in China, people questioned why such simple and absurd content had  made it into print and had been lavishly praised by local media and government bodies? Many Commenters have criticized this copy-paste extravaganza book as meaningless and of no value to its readers. But there are still a long list of local government offices and Communist Party-approved groups touting it. What they’re touting is not the book but authority and power.



 


2020年8月,吉林省公安厅副厅长贺电被免职,其所著『平安经』自去年12月出版以来,官方平台热烈吹捧,渐渐引发民间耻笑,被指中国当代官场现形记。

“初生平安,满月平安,百天平安,1岁平安,2岁平安,3岁平安……”这部被批“弱智” “荒唐”的拼字书,只需罗列一大堆名词,后面加上“平安”两字即可,全书十章,如此罗列下去。
这本书在中国引发了关于“滥用权力”的激烈讨论,人们质疑为什么如此荒谬的内容却得以出版并受到当地媒体和政府机构的盛赞。有网民评论,“平安经暴露出一群谄媚权力的马屁精,平安经写的怎么样?几岁孩子都会写。为什么那么多人吹捧?他们吹捧的只是权力。”
