The political mystery behind the Men Scarf
Today's topic is the men's scarf, and the first thing that comes to mind is the question of dressing up, which is about our taste, and a deeper level about the culture and the etiquette behind it.
The question of etiquette and taste may seem like a small topic, but it's actually quite big. This year, the state of the provincial government's essay on the essay said: impolite, people are rude, the country is not standing. In the Confucian tradition, the present topic is related to the ceremony. In gakumon Confucius said: "the wild, the gentleman is not can not learn, can not see people do not act the role ofing, no act the role ofing, no, no and disrespect, disrespect, rude. Not husband far and there is light, act the role ofing also; and nearly more than Ming, and learn." Means as a talented person, a person worthy of respect, need to do inside and outside and repair, first internal talented, enrich the internal theory of knowledge reserves, have external things, people to see you the first thing to do is pay attention to your appearance, a see wearing glamorous, first impression will look up his eyes, this is a person's appearance. Therefore, the gentleman needs both internal and external maintenance, which is not only respect for others, but also respect for himself.
While some talented people don't care much about external dressing, there are also sources in the analects: "quality wins the field, the literary and literary history, the genteel, the gentleman." It means to say that a person is very talented and virtuous, but to ignore the exterior is to be "wild" and not to be a gentleman, because the true gentleman is gentle and gentle. Today's men's scarf is still very high, and it can go up to the cultural practice, which can be raised to the level of politeness of Confucius, which is called regular speech.
