But in fact ,it has a profound meaning behind that .In Luxun’s eye , the one who stand for forbid superstitions have no self , no belief and completely no mercy to the masses of the people and their government deed are just obedient to the imperial court or authority. So they should be get rid of first .Do away with superstitions appears like a disguised form of controlling the people’s mind which is the tradition of the ruling class . In the long run , religions belief , the natural mind and wander spirit of the public can stimulate creative ability and promote the development of science , in the short run superstitions is the spiritual sustenance of the people , and Luxun’s mercy to it has much modernity significance . Luxun suspect the quality of the elite who bear the responsibility of the enlightenment. Luxun disagree with ideal-enlightenment that imposing the idea to the mass.Luxun’s belief that the enlightenment is to arouse the people’s subjective initiative show his position from individualism.
