Leisure in our modern society was kidnaped. It was twisted, distorted and deformed. It got lost. It was robbed of its soul and became naked, vacuous and ugly. Who did that? How to rescue it? We may draw some wisdom from the well-known saying: firstly surviving, secondly well-being, thirdly developing. Luxun who said the words above explained furthermore: surviving is not just living and muddling along, well-being is not being luxurious and developing is also not indulging. So my argument is what leisure can bring for us if it couldn’t make the world more beautiful ?
