正評論:伊麗莎白女王金色鋼琴引批評?

【新三才獨家首發評論】英國伊麗莎白女王每年例行會在聖誕節發布聖誕演講,但今年12月24日所發布的這張女王在倫敦白金漢宮白色繪畫室錄製聖誕演講的照片中,部分人們卻把焦點放在背景的一台金色鋼琴上,並以此批評女王。

女王的聖誕演講中,包括對她長壽和對和平願望的個人反思,並鼓勵人們尊重他人。

「有些文化認為長壽會帶來智慧。」女王在錄音中說道。「我想這麼想。也許這種智慧的一部分就是認識到一些生活中令人困惑的悖論,例如人類具有巨大的為善能力,同時也有做惡的能力。」

「即使是經常激發慷慨和自我犧牲的信仰力量,也會成為部落主義的犧牲品。」她指出,今年在澳大利亞舉行的英聯邦運動會強調了善意和相互尊重。「即使存在最深刻的分歧,尊重他人並作為人類同胞,始終是邁向更好理解的良好第一步。」

女王說她認為聖誕故事保留了它的魅力,因為耶穌的誕生給世界帶來了希望。

「我相信祂對地球和平的信息和對所有人的善意永遠不會過時。每個人都可以聽從;並一如既往地需要它。」

但這段聖誕演講的背景中出現了一架金色鋼琴,引發了部分人士對女王包括奢華、不知民間疾苦等等的指責。

然而,這架金色鋼琴實際上並不是由黃金製成,而是桃花心木,只是配上金色彩繪和鍍金。並且是維多利亞女王於1856年委託製作的,也是英國王室所擁有超過一百萬件物品組成的皇家收藏品的一部分。女王雖然擁有一些作為私人物品,但大部分的物品都屬於官方的權利。

雖然某些人仇視女王的財富,但大部分其他人都仍認為女王身為皇室與英國的代表,也就有其象徵性與皇家格調的必要性,所以為女王辯護說擁有一架金色鋼琴並不令人奇怪。

確實,這些批評女王的人們,不把重點放在女王精彩的聖誕演講內容,反而掀起類似仇富的觀點,其實也就剛好反映女王聖誕演講所提到的「人類具有巨大的為善能力,同時也有做惡的能力」。我們相信,長壽的女王也正如同她自己所講的「長壽帶來智慧」一般,將不會受到這些人刻意操作的影響,反而仍然會以女王的高度與優雅來尊重這些人。因為,「尊重他人並作為人類同胞,始終是邁向更好理解的良好第一步。」
