Jackie Chan has taken a lot of flak over his statement.
My question is "Why?" Is he not entitled to his opinions? More than that, I agree with him though for different reasons.
The Chinese, especially those on the Mainland need to be controlled. They cannot be free because they have had a government for 60 years that has told them that there is no such thing as morality, and that ethics are a ploy by the establishment to keep the poor poor. Therefore, is it any wonder that that there are now hundreds of millions of Chinese who have no qualms about cheating, robbing stealing and behaving as if there is nothing important except them personally getting rich?
Freedom only works in a moral or at least ethical society. Chinese society is neither. Maybe it will not always be so.
Until Next Time
