This article is reproduced from the Weixin public code "people's net" (ID: people_rmw), the original title is "no pig and chicken farming in rural areas", "forced coffin cremation"... Can the grass-roots governance be "one size fits all"? The original text was first published in July 30, 2018, and does not represent the viewpoint of think tanks.

There are two things that deserve attention recently. One is that the Jiangsu provincial environmental protection office quickly corrected the errant "no pig town" and "no chicken town". The other is the strong push of cremation in Jiangxi province.

"Is there no chicken, duck, fish and goose in the countryside?" In July 26th, at the group meeting held at the fourth meeting of the thirteen Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress, the representative of the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress inquired about the regulation of livestock and poultry pollution - some places to treat livestock and poultry farms, and simply adopted the methods of prohibiting, closing and dismantling. For example, it was proposed to be built "no pig town" "no chicken town". In this regard, Wang Tianqi, director of the Department of environmental protection in the province, said that in some areas, there is a real grasp of the phenomenon of no policy, and some places have a simple and rough "one size fits all".

Problems arise, solve problems; once deviated, correct in time. From "supporting the scientific and rational farming of farmers and correcting the forbidden zone blindly," to "the implementation of the livestock and poultry breeding policy as an important content, the correction of improper behavior, until the relevant cadres are accountable", the correction of the relevant departments of Jiangsu Province, echoing the public opinion, is highly praised and will go to the "disambiguation". The "no pig town" and "no chicken town" brake quickly, and it is worth affirming.

By contrast, the incident of looting coffin in Jiangxi is becoming more and more intense, causing mass discontent and hot debate among netizens. At present, Jiangxi province strongly pushed the cremation, and some places made it clear that the coffin collection was completed in an all-round way. There were no coffin coffin in the people's homes. The workers had no coffin craftsmen and no coffin coffin in circulation market. Many places even appeared the scene of "grabbing coffins and smashing coffins": the law enforcement team entered the village, forcibly lifted the coffins of villagers, smashed by excavators, the coffins into broken wood. Even more, not only the living and the dead, but also the dead, "in Yiyang, Jiangxi, the old man has been buried, the local officials forcibly dig the tomb, pry the coffin out, lift the corpse out of the cremation." News spread out, public opinion! Some netizens mocked that other places were looting for talent, but Jiangxi was fighting for coffin. The reason for putting two things together is that there are differences and connections between them.

Social governance, to a certain extent, is the governance of the people. How to do grass-roots work and how to get the understanding and support of the masses? General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that the masses'support and disapproval is an important criterion for our inspection work. "Whether the policy is good or not depends on whether the villagers cry or laugh. If you laugh, it means that the policy is good. If someone is crying, we should pay attention to it. We need to correct what needs to be corrected, and we need to perfect it if we want to improve it. " Judging from the actual effect of the funeral reform in Jiangxi, not only did the people cry, but they also became angry. Such a reform is reasonable and unpopular. By contrast, Jiangsu's rapid correction has been affirmed and recognized by the local people.

It is good to change customs and customs, and to promote green funeral reform. However, whether this reform has sought the opinions of the grass-roots masses, whether it is reasonable to organize mobilization, persuading the masses, ideological guidance, supporting services, etc., is worthy of review and consideration whether to respect local customs and whether it is in line with the wishes of the masses. Should things be done in a way that involves the interests of the masses? How to take into account the public order and good customs? Is there any reason to take rough or even barbaric means? Even if it had some effect, it would hurt people's hearts, destroy the image, even arouse people's resentment and bury the unease. It is important to change customs and habits, but it must be promoted on the premise of the will of the people and approved by the masses. In this way, the original intention of reform will not become wishful thinking, and the effect of reform will not be twice as effective.  

The interests of the people are not trivial. We should do practical things for the people, do good deeds, listen to public opinion, respect public opinion and fear public opinion.

With a piece of paper, a coffin is needed to break the coffin. Is this still governance?

It is strange to know where the driving force of the coffin can not wait for the above, and what motivates the administration to know that it will cause a grumbling and strong push.

This article is reprinted from the Guangming network, the original original in July 30, 2018. The original title was "robbing coffin coffin with a document on a paper, is it still governing", which does not represent the view of the think tank.

The destruction of the coffin has made the brutality of the means, the roughness of administration, and the inexistence of governance.

On the last two days, the news of the coffin grabbed people's ears and eyes. It is said that this summer, in many places in Jiangxi, there was a scene of "robbing coffin coffin" in many places: the law enforcement team entered the village in the village, forced the villagers' coffin to be carried away, hundreds of coffin coffin, densely packed in the empty land, the excavator hammered and smashed, the coffin of one mouth suddenly turned into broken wood, and the scene was "spectacular". "."

Such a "spectacular" is almost sad and indignant. The relevant news described that in Ji'an, Yichun, Jiangxi, and other places, a number of local officials or law enforcement teams broke into the farmers, forcibly search the coffin, see the coffin, and concentrate on the destruction. "A lot of old people look at their coffin for years to be a pile of waste wood, sad and angry no place to speak, some old people silently shed tears, more elderly people are crying loudly. And the old man watched the coffin be dragged away, they jumped into the coffin, and had to "walk" with the coffin, and they were persuaded that they would not climb up, and the law enforcement team forcibly dragged the old man out.

How angry is this kind of official? What kind of social picture is Weng Yu's sad picture? Social governance is originally a popular project, because the purpose of governance is to make people better survive. However, if the practical means to achieve governance are contrary to the vision described in this purpose, such social governance, if it can be called governance, is a failed governance. No doubt, the means of this kind of jungle which is hard to seize the coffin and then destroy it, no matter how correct the purpose, and no matter how beautiful the purpose is, is contrary to the public opinion and the governance of the people's heart. It is the rapid accumulation of people's distrust of the administration.

The destruction of the coffin has made the brutality of the means, the roughness of administration, and the inexistence of governance. It is not against cremation of funerals, nor against arranging the aftermath of mankind in a way more in line with the realities of contemporary existence. The anger and condemnation of the way of the administration of the evil is the hegemony of the forcible private-ownership, or the forcible replacement of private property by the will of the human will. This will replace the truth with a paper document and take the coffin for the coffin instead of the rational hegemony. It may work for a moment, but it will be an untimely hidden danger for the long-term governance of the society.

It is often known as a "sensible" expression that people often say that China's national conditions are complex and that some of the slow improvements that have been criticized are tolerant. Then, in the funeral reform, especially in the rural burial reform, China's national conditions have become simple. Can the people of the elderly in the countryside be forced to brush the coffin into the furnace? Since we can understand the national conditions, and wait for the gradual leveling of the differences between urban and rural areas caused by historical development and decades of scissors, the way of rural population mobility to some extent makes up for the inequality of public service in urban and rural areas, then why can we not wait for or delay the "backwardness" in the countryside slightly? Changes in the way of burial?

Burial cremation is the trend of the times. Even those living in rural areas are not ignorant of this trend. For those middle peasants and their descendants who have been away from work, it is no longer difficult to change their outlook on funeral. It is strange to know where the driving force of the coffin can not wait for the above, and what motivates the administration to know that it will cause a grumbling and strong push.
