Ironically enough, this is progress. Obviously not her ambition but the fact that she is aware that there are corrupt officials. The news is actually being reported on this subject and these officials are being exposed/charged with corruption. There are lots of things wrong with Communist China (i.e. being the world's leaders in executions) however, there has been progress from Mao's iron rule.
Kids say the darndest things.
Does anyone know what happened to the girl?:a) The comment was forgottenb) She was punished for a improper statementc) She was transfered as a promising candidate to a shool training public officialsd) Something else
Okay that is hysterical. And would apply to the US too.
"Does anyone know what happened to the girl?:d) Something else"...Yeah, she was turned into Payless shoes and I'm wearing part of her right now...
At this age, she probably doesn't even know what the word "corrupt" means. She is repeating what she hears adults are saying. I'd be wondering what happened to the parents.
She should move to the U.S. You've not been a corrupt official, until you've been one here.
Isn't it like the poor everywhere, they see crime as an easy way to make money. They don't know anyone that slaved away in school to get an education, so it isn't on their radar.
d) Something elseThe girl and her family were all escorted into police vans and never seen again. Word is that they entered one of these death vans and their organs were harvested for other CPC members.If she lives and fulfills her wish, she won't be far from a prototypical "Party boss" Audi if not having to settle for a bastardized Buick.There are lots of things wrong with Communist China (i.e. being the world's leaders in executions) however, there has been progress from Mao's iron rule.They still have the proverbial iron rule, just that it does not come from Mao, but of an iron rule not seen for ages in the First World. That is, they have the prototypical "company country" versus the "company towns" of developed nations. At least Japan was far ahead at this point by recognizing the need to go towards quality.
