Diaoyu Islands with Cake and Murakami
04 Oct 2012
This is an “apolitical” blog, so I won’t say much. But I was highly amused to see this cake for sale in Chengdu while I was there over the holiday:
> “When a territorial issue ceases to be a practical matter and enters the realm of ‘national emotions’, it creates a dangerous situation with no exit.
> “It is like cheap liquor. Cheap liquor gets you drunk after only a few shots and makes you hysterical.
> “It makes you speak loudly and act rudely… But after your drunken rampage you are left with nothing but an awful headache the next morning.
> “We must be careful about politicians and polemicists who lavish us with this cheap liquor and fan this kind of rampage,” he wrote.
