in press & poster ads sway (pro-bono / non-profit ads)
Odd Scouts has created a campaign for the Swedish youth Red Cross that is sure to piss off the Chinese (like the old Coke & Tibetan monks ad). In this campaign, pictures that show the police or military chasing, beating or even strangling protestors is marked with a small symbol explaining which olympic sport it is - like the 400 meter dash, wrestling, boxing and baseball.
The images carry the line "Arranging the Olympic games is not a human right. Continue the discussion at RKUF.se" which is the red cross youth site in Sweden.
Sometimes people need to sit back and think how a country with such land mass and cultural diversity exits for over 5,000 years.
Hint: it has never ruled by democracy in its entire existence.
Final analysis: stop telling other countries how to run their affairs, especially if it fits their needs.
You have obviously spent some time in China or you are very intelligent Yes with a population so large and a very big country, communism was a way to go but now they have changed and DEMOCRACY is not the way they are headed.
I believe they will come up with a new type of socialism combined with a mixture of Concervtasism and capitalism.with a spluttering of socialism.
"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."
- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.
"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.
I contribute my "smart" to the stupidity of American ideologies. Human rights is noble but frankly, it is nothing more than masturbation. You most certainly feel good, but at the end you are still fooling yourself.
Again, look at the 5,000 plus years of Chinese history, and tell me at which point she was not under dictatorship of one form or another? Yet, she has the world's largest GDP for the last 10 centuries.
America is a young country, she has much to learn.
