A few days ago in an ancient street of an ancient Stone
Town (石镇) at Ten Thousand Year County (万年县) in Jiangxi Province
(江西), an ancient temple built 700 years ago during the Ming
Dynasty was discovered by the world outside.
What's truly magnificent about this piece of heritage is
its authenticity. Most pre-Manchu Qing buildings were renovated
during the Qing era (1644-1911), and stamped more or less
with Manchu's peculiarity, which is characterized by the
extravagance in decoration, especially in colour, and the
contraction in structural style, particularly when the size
and shape of brackets and eaves are concerned. But this temple
has been maintained so well by the locals since it was built
thus no restoration was needed therefore it has stayed faithful
to its authentic
The temple was initially erected as a tribute to a pair
of the local Robin Hoods who robbed the rich and mean to
feed the poor and unfortunate:
loke ye do no husbonde harme
That tilleth with his ploughe.
No more ye shall no gode yeman
That walketh by gren-wode shawe;
Ne no knyght ne no squyer
That wol be a gode felawe *
The Chinese Robin Hoods were brothers surnamed Zhou and
for seven long centuries, they were dearly remembered and
deeply loved and frequently offered with incenses and fruits
by the locals:
they were a good outlawe,
And dyde pore men moch god. *
This is the way a man, who sincerely care for those in need
and bravely stand up to those being tyrannical and exploitive,
can expect to live beyond his earthly existence.
some Chinese in China and some Chinese
from America, would do all they can to curry favour
with the rich and powerful, and bark viciously like a lapdog
at the poor and powerless whenever they get an chance,
even when they are their own people, by nationality or
During his visit to China in 2009, U.S. President Barack
Obama turned down all requests by Chinese media to interview
him, except Sow's Weekly (or something sounded similar).
Since Mr. Obama is a man who also loves to present himself
as reincarnated Robin Hood and is said going to order the
rich to pay more taxes to help the poor to pay their medical
bills, you'd think the only Chinese media he appreciates
must be the one run by somebody like Little John or Will
Scarlet who share Robin Hood's aspiration and want to be
Sherwood Forest warriors or Greenwood Forest heroes (绿林好汉).
But are they really? Here is the latest quote from the Weekly's executive
editor posted on weibo (Chinese twitter) on 18 September
2011, the 80th anniversary of Japan's invasion of China:
Today all Chinese young women should resist a love making
request by your boyfriend or husband to show your spirit
of resisting Japanese invasion.
The abbreviation for Japan in Chinese and Japanese (which
is based on Chinese script) is 日, that also means sex.
You might say this man gets so low in taste, but the vulgarity
is just a minor offence comparing to the gross insult he
inflicted upon the people who fought against a fascist Japan
in WWII, which include Chinese and include Russians and include
Americans who actually dropped two nukes to force an unconditional
surrender by Japanese
monarch. Isn't it?
Yet the Weekly led by this man is President Obama's
only darling media in China.
So we would like to kindly remind you, America's poor and
unfortunate, Barack Obama might not really be U.S. version
of Earl of Locksley, but Sheriff of Nottingham in disguise.
Watch out, don't be fooled.
Oh, yes, the next question is who is the Chinese version
of Sir Guy of Gisbourne who sent disgraced former knights
from Red Yellow Spring Autumn and dismal Bright
Western Gate from Sow's Weekly to assassinate the
returning Chinese spirit and the emerging humanitarian consciousness?
Keep your eyes wide open!
