Today's society may not be like the undeveloped society of the past, misunderstanding diseases or believing in superstitions without a source, and oppressing things that they cannot understand. However, after reading marquis's book, people think, apart from the oppression caused by the system, prejudice, and superstition, in fact, more direct, is a spontaneous doubt: modern society, and whether modern love is not slowly lose the enthusiasm and madness that marquis has been emphasizing in his work?
"People try to find encounters that ghost mannequin effect make sure everything, expecting everyone they meet to be just like them. They have the same tastes, the same dreams, the same determination, which I think goes against the very definition of love itself. Because it means the middle there's no risk-taking element, no risk at all to take, as if both parties must be satisfied, like some kind of commercial contract, which seriously threatens love."
These are the words of the contemporary french philosopher alain badiou when he talks about modern social media for love. Maybe not quite right, but it still seems like a thorn in the back from time to time. Because maybe as he said, people's imagination about love may have been filled by some idol dramas and movies conveyed in the small happiness, happiness and warmth, fear of pain love. And if "No one writes to the colonel" is marquis asking us whether we are willing to spend all kinds of futile efforts and experience huge nothingness to continue to wait for a future that we want, but it is almost impossible to come; then "About "Love and other demons" (and "Love in the time of the plague") is asking us whether we dare to love madly in this modern world where everything is regulated.
