Long way to go, too long.
8 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

This documentary showed some of the truth of China. Not every Chinese are fond of "vote". In my option, 80% or more people living here don't care who will be the leader, they just care about there OWN life.

"If I can get rich anyway, I don't care who is wearing the crown even he is a totally b*****d."

But, if the b*****d can not do the job, they just waiting for the "god's willing" to punish him, their patience is FAR MORE beyond your white's imagination.

Probably, there will be change, but not my or your eyes could witness.

Well, guys, it is hard to find this film to watch HERE, that might prove that this documentary is not "lead" by a liberal politico---that kind of creature is more rare than panda.
