几天前, 我在上海浦东国际机场转机时, 看到这个大大的”八荣八耻” 的海报,特地拍下来“警惕”自己。

还有一张海报是“出国旅行守则”之类的提示。可惜,没拍下来。

I saw the above poster while I was transiting in Shanghai Pudong International Airport. It was an interesting poster which listed ‘the eight prides and the eight shames’. The title of the poster was ‘The Morality of Socialism’.

The literal translation of the above poster is as followed:

(My apology to Chinese readers, please correct my translation if there are any inadequacies)

The Eight things that we should be proud of

  • to love our homeland
  • to serve the people
  • to unite and to help each other
  • be honest and commit to our promises
  • to uphold Science
  • to comply with rules and regulations
  • be industrious
  • to strive hard

The Eight things we should be shameful of are:

  • to harm our homeland
  • to betray our people
  • benefit ourselves by doing things that are harmful to others
  • disregard righteousness when we see our personal gains
  • being ignorant and foolish
  • break the laws and disturb the order
  • seeking an easy life without working hard
  • being wasteful, decadent and hedonistic

I saw another poster which gives behavioral guidelines if travel overseas. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to take a picture.
