制服

分类: 收藏客栈

No one should be forced to wear a uniform any circumstance. Uniforms are demanding to the human spirit and totally unnecessary in democratic society.  Uniforms tell the world that the person who wears one has no value as an individual but only lives to function as a part of a whole. The individual in a uniform loses all self-worth.

There are those who say that wearing a uniform gives a sense of identification with a larger, more important concept. What could be more important than the individual himself? If an organization is so weak that it must rely on cloth and buttons to inspire its members, that organization has no right to continue its existence. Others say that the practice of making persons wear uniforms, say in a school, eliminates all envy and competition in the matter of dress, such that a poor person who cannot afford good quality clothing need not be looked down upon by a wealthy person who wears expensive quality clothing. Those persons conveniently ignore such critical concepts as freedom of choice, motivation, and individuality. If all persons were to wear the same clothing, why would anyone strive to be better? It is only a short step form forcing everyone to drive the same car, have the same type of foods. When this happens, all motivation to improve one’s life is removed. Why would parents bother to work hard so that their children could have a better life than they had when they know that their children are going to be forced to have exactly the same life that they had?

Uniforms also hurt the economy. Right now, billions of dollars are spent on the fashion industry yearly. Thousands of persons are employed in designing, creating and marketing different types of clothing. If everyone were forced to wear uniforms, artistic personnel would be unnecessary. Sales persons would be superfluous as well; why bother to sell the only items that are available? The wearing of uniforms would destroy the fashion industry, which in turn would have a ripple effect on such industries as advertising and promotion. Without advertising, newspapers, magazines, and television would not be able to remain in business. One entire information and entertainment industry would collapse.

在任何情況下都不能強迫一個人穿制服。制服是對人類靈魂的苛求,在民主社會裏根本毫無必要。制服能告訴人們,穿制服的人沒有作為一個個體的價值,他的存在不過是為了構成某個整體的一部分。個體的人,一旦穿上制服,就失去了全部的自我價值。

有些人認為,穿制服可以給人一種對更大、更重要的認同感。但這個世上還有什麼比個體本身更重要的呢?如果一個組織衰到只能依賴布料和紐扣來激勵員工的話,它就失去了繼續存在的權利。也有人認為,讓人們穿制服的做法,比如說在學校裏,消除了人們因為衣服而產生的所有嫉妒和競爭,能避免那些買不起好衣服的窮人被那些平時穿高價高質衣服的富人看不起。這些人輕易就把一些重要概念忽略掉了,比如自由選擇權、激勵和個性。如果所有人都穿同樣的衣服,人們為什麼還要努力打拼過的更好些呢?這樣下去的話,不久就會強迫每個人開同樣的車、吃同樣的事物了。到了那時,所有改善個人生活的動機就都沒有了。如果家長們知道自己的孩子會被迫和他們過同樣的生活,他們為什麼還要為了兒女過上更好的生活而辛勤工作呢?

制服對經濟也有不良的影響。目前,每年在服裝業上的投資都有幾十億美金。成千上萬的人從事各種不同類型服裝的設計、生產和銷售。如果人人都被迫穿制服,設計人員就沒必要存在了,銷售人員也變得多餘了。為什麼費勁地去賣那些大家能買到的惟一一種衣服呢?穿制服會毀了服裝行業,然後會在廣告、宣傳等行業產生連鎖反應。沒有廣告,報紙、雜誌和電視也將不能維持商業運作,整個媒體和娛樂產業將會崩潰。
