You struck a chord with me on this one, Jian Shuo.
I am with you regarding the “donation competition and condemnation”. I am sick of it myself.
I don’t know what other popular public opinion troubles you. One thing that I personally felt a little uncomfortable with was the over reaction seemingly from so many people against Sharon Stone’s comments, not that I condone her obnoxious and ignorant activities. To me, she is just one of Hollywood has-been. Total indignation from so many people to such a pathetic, attention-seeking has-been do not reflect well on the former.
Somethings change quickly, others do not. It is what it is. Cheer up and speak up in a respectful way. Things will get better, slowly but surely.
One response to “捐款不在多少”
Sharon Stone is not helping the cause of Tibet. The way I see it, though, is that when New Orleans was hit by the hurricane, some prominent conservative was dumb enough to say it was retribution for New Orleans’ sins. Now when China gets hit, some prominent liberal has the same dumb rhetoric. There’s a certain equality to that.
As for one-upsmanship over donations: give from the heart.
