China’s conundrum of an economy

LAST month China’s National Bureau of Statistics reported that inequality in China is slowly narrowing. But public outrage over unearned privilege is still growing. China’s online public is ever more furious about a parade of corrupt officials, whose stories are far more compelling than any statistics.

Speak

I can hear the muffled agony

In the voice of that girl,

Who is has been brutally raped

And then left on the street to die.

I can feel the pain of the mother,

Weeping inconsolably, desperately,

For the daughter who is now gone.

Not just physically, but emotionally dead.

I can see the animalistic pleasure,

The wild, cruel, sadistic joy,

In the face of the monster,

The man who did this to her.

I can smell the blood,

The sweat and tears that girl shed,

As she tried to save herself

From dying the worst kind of death.

I cannot see any one speak.

No one to stand up for what is right,

Defend the weak and fallen.

And I wonder, why?

In Christianity, nun’s vow to celibacy. The Quran preaches no man-women contact.  How can you even attempt to have gender equality in theocratic states such as Iran or Pakistan where the basic religion that is practiced vigorously 5 times a day, is against gender equality
