English Abstract

The ”original sin” sense, like a virulent gene embedded in the soul of intellectuals of May 4th Period, can be vaguely detected in the image of rickshaw men during the early 20th century. Combined with the idea of holy labor, it has crushed the enlightening consciousness, independent personality and elitist position of intellectuals, and finally procured the collective absence of intellectuals in the ”Cultural Revolution”.
