1945年二戰結束,10月中華民國國民政府代表盟軍接管臺灣。一如歌詞「張燈結彩喜洋洋」描述的,當時臺灣經歷了二戰洗禮,臺灣人欣喜若狂迎接新來的行政長官陳儀,對未來充滿了美好的期待與幻想,這也是我們所熟知的歷史。
但為何一年後,爆發了228大屠殺事件?中間到底發生了什麼事?


Lars von Trier's film may be called "Nymphomaniac", but the controversial Danish film director insists that he wants only to stimulate the viewer's brain. The numerous graphic sex scenes, performed by body doubles from the adult-film industry, have been widely publicised. But if pornography is the most basic kind of film-making, "Nymphomaniac" is the opposite http://econ.st/1fGMrgU


The pleasure in Mr. Brook's unusual history is in his descriptions of the creation of these cities. The deeper message, though, is about the tensions such cities create. It takes an autocrat to design something so ambitious as a city of the future. But if successful, such a city will chafe under autocracy. You cannot attract the world's best and brightest and expect them to work brilliantly in silence.
His on-stage persona as a Zen-like mystic notwithstanding, Mr Jobs was an autocratic manager with a fierce temper.But his egomania was largely justified.
