Essay: 谢振礼

When one neighbor helps another, people strengthen their communities. A sense of community is as important today as it always was, if only to cope with the rising crime rates in newly-established urban communities. Given that the security of community is desirable, why neighbors do not know each other, and what can be done to strengthen a strong sense of community?

当一个邻居帮助另一个,人们加强他们的社区。今天的社区意识和以往一样重要,哪怕只是为了应对新建城市社区犯罪率的上升。考虑到社区的安全是值得的,为什么邻居之间互不认识,如何加强社区意识?

 

There are likely causes why an increasing number of people, particularly young adults, do not feel the need to know people living next door. To begin with, it is possible that nowadays most working people tend to be self-centered and do not know their neighbors, let alone trusting them. It is also possible that working people could not afford to spend time in gossiping about weather, dogs and new babies, in a similar way that traditional neighbors used to do in the old-fashioned community spirit. This situation becomes especially obvious due mainly to modern housing plans.  In some cases, neighbors do not know people who are living near them because families are either ‘caged’ like animals in department units or are separated by walls usually two meters high. That is to say, neighbors appear to be at once so near and yet so far away. As a result, there is no longer that sense of community which is closely related to a sense of security in the neighborhood. It is as if neighbors are acting like strangers.

越来越多的人,尤其是年轻人,不觉得有必要了解住在隔壁的人,这可能是有原因的。首先,现在的大多数劳动者可能以自我为中心,不认识邻居,更不用说信任他们了。也有可能,劳动人民没有钱花时间谈论天气、狗和新出生的孩子,就像传统邻居在传统的社区精神中所做的那样。由于现代住房计划,这种情况变得尤为明显。在某些情况下,邻居不认识住在他们附近的人,因为他们的家庭要么像部门里的动物一样被关在笼子里,要么被两米高的墙壁隔开。也就是说,邻居们似乎同时离得那么近,又那么远。因此,社区意识不再与邻里的安全感密切相关。就好像邻居们表现得像陌生人一样。

 

Under these circumstances, neighbors need to change the attitude of their mutual indifference and instead to begin watching each other’s back. As modern society is increasingly being threatened by rising crimes, people should be more concerned about the security of their community; and for that matter, they should know their neighbors in the first place. One practical suggestion is for government to encourage neighbors to participate in a what is called Citizens Neighborhood Watch Program to make it more difficult for bandits to perpetuate a crime nearby. By so doing, people in the same community can not only know each other but also create the bondage of friendship, and thus keep intruders away. Since the absence of a sense of community is a dangerous thing, it is imperative to have friendly neighbors to report suspicious activities to police who can handle the crooks. Mutual help is indispensable, considering that the impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor.

在这种情况下,邻居们需要改变彼此漠不关心的态度,而不是开始互相监视。随着现代社会日益受到犯罪率上升的威胁,人们应该更加关注社区的安全;因此,他们首先应该了解自己的邻居。一个切实可行的建议是,政府应该鼓励邻居参与所谓的“公民邻里监督”项目,让匪徒更难在附近持续犯罪。通过这样做,同一个社区的人们不仅可以互相了解,还可以创造友谊的束缚,从而将入侵者拒之门外。由于缺乏社区意识是一件危险的事情,所以必须有友好的邻居向警察报告可疑的活动,警察可以处理这些恶棍。相互帮助是必不可少的,因为政府的非人情味之手永远不能取代邻居的帮助之手。

 

In conclusion, because the security of community is desirable, people should know next-door neighbors and care for them. A traditional sense of community should be introduced to new new neighborhoods. But that sense of community can only be reinforced when people know their neighbors.

综上所述,由于社区的安全是可取的,人们应该了解邻居并关心他们。应该把传统的社区意识引入新的社区。但是只有当人们认识他们的邻居时,这种社区意识才会得到加强。
