Christian Bale should feel embarrassed?

Some of us in Singapore can hold the Western and Chinese perspective in the same mind.

The ang mohs must be nonplussed that the Chinese should say that Christian Bale should feel embarrassed.

This gap is very dangerous but practically cannot be closed. Only by being mutually respectful of each other cultures and being infinitely patient can we coexist. This is only workable if we do not suspect each other intentions. This is a tall order.

Read the 5 stars and 1 stars review of this book and feel the yawning gap in their worldviews. 1 stars are mainly from the Chinese. Good for them if they are right, but woe if they are wrong. I fear for them that the late Deng Xiaoping would not agree.
