the future under a red umbrella

The world seems to be waking up to a new dawn, a new reality, a new arrangement. One quarter of the world population lives in China and speaks Chinese. As the red dragon awakens, it spreads its wings wider and wider to cast its reddish shadow on parts of our world. Whether this is good or bad, whether we like it or dislike it, it remains an irrefutable fact. And the way of the red umbrella is discipline, repetition, dedication, an unwavering focus, a unified goal, all pushing in the same direction, which begs the question, is this the natural human way?

  1. Great image and thought-provoking words.

  2. mm.. agreed, it is the modern way anyway, china was so isolated for so many centuries, coming out of her slumber now.. c

  3. Excellent image, and a written piece that asks a very important question. But whether we like to admit it or not, power is shifting eastwards. FATman
