- He stood on the high platform, looking down at the crowd below. His voice echoed through the sky, his words were full of confidence and authority.
- He was their leader, their mentor, their idol. He led them to a new era, an era full of hope and glory. They trusted him, worshiped him, imitated him. He was an enlightened thinker, a learned scholar, a tolerant cultural messenger. He advocated a pluralistic and harmonious worldview, a value system of respect and understanding. They appreciated him, learned from him, spread him.
- But not everyone liked him, not everyone believed him. Some people had hostility towards him, some people had doubts about him. They thought he was a hypocrite, an ambitious man, a liar.
- He wanted to establish his own hegemony and influence, suppress and exclude other voices and opinions. He wanted to control his people’s thoughts and actions, eliminate and stifle other cultures and innovations.
- So they resisted, they protested, they opposed. They tried to expose his true face, expose his lies, expose his crimes. But none of these worked. Because the person on the high platform had powerful power and resources. He could control the media and public opinion at will. He could suppress and crack down on any opponents and dissenters at will.
- So the person on the high platform still stood there, still said those words. And among the crowd below, some people still followed him, some people still resisted him.
