Jackie Chan

A great sense of humour, self deprecation and a great film maker.

I love Jackie Chan's early movies which he made in Hong Kong.
We see them on TV in the original Cantonese language with English subtitles.

Very funny and great action scenes.

Jackie Chan's parents live in Canberra, Australia.

Confucius

Although I strongly disagree with the sexist ideas attributable to Confucianism, the man himself had so many wonderful thoughts to share. It would have been a real tragedy if his works had been lost over time - fortunately they are still with us.
"People are the water, the ruler is the boat; water can carry the boat, but it can also capsize it."

-- Li Shimin (2nd Tang Emperor, "Taizong")

The Tiananmen Tank Man is known throughout the world, his bravery is a great example.
The lead tank driver, who was determined not to harm the protester, is another patriot, as is the man who tried to get the TTM off the street.


Its amazing that the tank driver didn't run him over! Can you imagine an American tank driver stopping! They would have driven over him in cold blood!

We hear reports from Iraq where American drivers run over Iraqi children rather than stopping or slowing down! They would say that they were following orders or didn't want to endanger their own troops.

To me it showed the respect for the sanctity of life that the Chinese has, A good example to the rest of the world.
I am Chinese and Proud of it!

Heroes

National heroes are those who did what others didn't and couldn't, whose deeds are advantageous to the nation and the vast majority of the people.  As such, of course Chairman Mao and Mr. Deng, Xiaoping beat them all hands down, even with perceived warts and all.  

The jerk that obstructed traffic was not ignomious misguided fool, willingly playing pawn to the foreign funded conspiracy to overthrow SWCC, the most capable of government systems in human history in the last quarter decade.  That image gave ammunition to all who want to hold China and the Chinese down.  The Westerners have long since forgotten how to compete, so they use lies and bribes to try and disrupt China's rise.  Anyone working with the Westerners to disrupt China's rise cannot possibly be a hero.
