Horrific. The collapse of Communism in China (and elsewhere) can't come soon enough.

A sample of the horror:

Quote:
Chinese medical authorities admit that the lion’s share of transplant organs originate with executions, but no mainland Chinese doctors, even in exile, will normally speak of performing such surgery. To do so would remind international medical authorities of an issue they would rather avoid—not China’s soaring execution rate or the exploitation of criminal organs, but rather the systematic elimination of China’s religious and political prisoners.

and here I thought this thread was going to be about occupations not to engage in.... butchers being most noteably one, from a buddhist perspective :smile: ..shows how wrong one can be, if one is not careful in their attention to the context of presentation of any one thing.
Why one may be perhaps saying one thing or other....

Never thought of that reading of the title, so made a new one.
