Evil Bandits Drugged Boy; Harvested His Corneas
By Bian-lian Huang
I've said it before, but it bears repeating. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek once said that his hatred of Chinese Communism had nothing to do with economics or politics but rather with the Communists' apostasy of traditional Chinese ethics and values.
Old Chiang may be right after all. In today's China, where Confucian ethos and traditional fear/respect for karma have dissipated because of 60 years of dialectical materialism, any thing goes. Including the harvesting of human organs and lacing foodstuffs with poison. All in the name of profits!
A society without ethos is indeed scary. No amount of laws and law enforcement can substitute for ethics.
