With the development of science and technology, our substantial life today has improved a lot. However, we also become more and more impatient and intolerant with the spiritual life. The contemporary society now is full of contradictions. We have more access to books, music and other means of media. And at the same time, we find more popular books and fewer good books with meaningful values; we notice that we sing more popular songs like rap which is full of dirty words and less classical music that can purify our souls. Because we are so impatient, we are eager to earn, to win and to success. Some among us choose special methods. For example, some young people are voluntary to be concubines and male paramours for the purpose of money and power, a group which is called as golden digger by us now. Rather than scold them, in my opinion we need to analyze the phenomenon instead because it is a typical product of the society.

 

Since the gap between wealthy and poor becomes larger and larger, people’s desire for power and wealth has been enlarged. And it is not a big surprise that people want to stronger and more powerful because it is human nature. As Darwin said, the fittest survive. We cannot neglect the fact that the society is cruel and harsh. We should struggle for a better life and in an appropriate way. However, many people, especially young persons who desire greatly but do not have the spirit of enduring hardships and standing hard work, choose a easier and less morale way. They trade their body and future for momentary pleasure. Though the majority despises them, some people envy them because they are not that handsome or beautiful. And to our astonishment, many highly educated students also join in the group of golden diggers. From the list “published” by some students of 12 Shanghai universities in July, we notice that moral has nothing to do with education. It confuses us all that what happens to our society.

 

Seen from the history, the phenomenon of golden digger always exits. In the ancient time it was the patriarchy society. Women have to rely on their husbands and had no economic power. It was common for a man to have several mistresses. Some poor family even encouraged or sold their daughters for concubines. Though now we enter a new era, the economic equality between male and female and sexuality discrimination still exit. So in my opinion, the appearance of golden digger is not a coincidence but a product of this century. We need to treat this issue dialectically and first find out what produce golden diggers.

 

First of all as I said in the last paragraph, the society should take the biggest blame. When a girl encounters the sexuality discrimination during searching for a job or at work, she may be driven to the corner and consider to be one’s mistress since it seems to be the last chance for her. Some golden diggers do not choose this way by themselves but the way chooses them. Moreover, today our education mostly only teaches youths to achieve high grades rather than keep noble moral sentiments. When young students find that if they can get high scores they can also get anything they want, and when they find other students whose parents are high officials or millionaires have privileges in enrollment and so on, they may misinterpret that power and wealth equal to anything. When our society becomes more and more unequal, some persons are forced to turn to heresy for help. Also another criticism of education is the lack of good books. If we search the Internet and go to the bookstores, we will find popular stories, which are usually written about a girl become a mistress and finally gain happiness and power, are greatly welcomed. These stories are variations of Cinderella. They give girls false information that female can gain happiness easily if they can find a handsome and rich man. Our society needs reformation and education needs improvement. Contemporary society needs to take its responsibility of guiding.

 

In the second place, family also has the duty to resist the appearance of golden digger. Family is a part of the society and family education plays a significant role. And it is the fact that parents in some families, especially those in rural areas, teach their children to earn respect through earning money. Also the tragic story that a family sells a daughter for money still can be read on newspaper. If a child grows up in such a family, s/he will tend to seek quick success and instant benefits. More impatient the child is more decaying standards of morality s/he will obey. Parent is the first and the most vital teacher of a child, s/he should tell clearly to children what is right and what is wrong. Parents should also set a good example for children.

 

In the third place, individual also take blame for golden digger. No matter how much society and family influence an individual, it is the person himself/herself chooses to be a golden digger. Some are attracted by the luxurious life. Even though some students are enrolled into outstanding universities and may have bright future, they want to be more “successful”. In addition, they regard their educational background as a benefit to be a concubine. The fact that the advertisement posted in Guangzhou proved that today many people take full use of their advantages to be the rich’s partners rather than find satisfied jobs to support themselves. They have lost morale standards by themselves. Every one of us should stick to our principles and be independent. The society may be cool and cruel, but it is us who can change and prettify it. As Meng Zi said and I paraphrased, no fortune shall corrupt my soul, no poverty shall dampen my will, and no power shall suppress my pride. We also always keep a moral quotient in our mind.

 

The appearance of golden digger is a sad story and sarcasm of the development of our society. Society, family and individual should work together to repress the phenomenon.
