Quotes

"The main street in Beibing lay like a satiated boa constrictor, with a circular square of some half a million square meters in the area of its belly. This was a popular tourist destination in Dayang. In 2019, the totally transparent statue of a naked goddess carrying a torch was added to the square, with diamond eyes and red lasers shooting forth the news and weather, interspersed with the occasional poem, to the night sky."
"I talk to a lot of young people -- their attitude, determination to make a difference, innovative spirit and desire to change things give me hope" he told 18,000 youth at We Day to wild applause
"The shaping of traditional Chinese culture in the past thousands of years hardly has any direct relations with communism or its ideology, and those seeking to stem Confucius Institutes as disseminators of world culture are trying to hold back a pure form of human communication."
...As for Tuesday's decision on the part of European Union foreign ministers to hold off on imposing an arms embargo, Sestanovich says, "over many months, Putin has adroitly managed to keep the EU from imposing severe sanctions. If he can do so again, in the most important phase of the Ukraine crisis, it will be a devastating blow to the organization."
