    Yesterday, Jackie Chan said "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want". AGAIN THIS IS UNREASONABLE/OUTRAGEOUS/STUPID/IDIOTIC.

    Now, why did Chan say something like this? According to Solun So, chief executive of Chan's company, JC Group and his main spokesman said "Some people WITH ULTERIOR MOTIVES DELIBERATELY MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT HE SAID". OK, Mr. So, what was Chan trying to say then? Are you saying that EVERYONE who condemned Chan's remark is insane then?

    He says stuff like that because he's rich and he's in bed with the Chinese government.

        Yes! I have read many times in materials 1970 - 2009 and heard from missionaries & friends living in China, that the govt completely owns/controls Shaolin Temple, Kung Fu and all their activities.

        Shaolin monks (their touring company section) come to my city every year with a "soap opera" musical with Kung Fu added. Their first year's visit was really a historical presentation and quite good. The Soap Opera of today looks to be performed only for big money-making and the monks are the "hook."

        A sad commentary when we add the ingredient of Mr. Chan's current verbalized views - the result is political and big business all at once.

    I just saw this and was very surprised. When Mr.Chan came to Australia he seemed very intelligent, and these remarks if attributable to him would seem well out of character.

    There is an old saying in South India... "Let Ravana rule or let Rama rule... I am not bothered..."  JC has come to that state of mind... because he wont be affected even if India goes there to rule. He has ensured his livelihood .. he need not bother about others. But others will certainly bother about him.

      Huh, I've not heard that one before, it's much like "Render unto Ceaser that which is Ceaser's, render unto God that which is God's", not a bad saying to live by, either of them.

    Sorry, I can't see how the comment is so much as remotely interesting, never mind controversial.

    It may have something to do with the way China has traditionally considered itself the Middle Kingdom, arbiter between the gods and humanity.  Another reason might have to do with the longevity of the Chinese bureaucracy which, except for brief periods, is the oldest in existence. 

    Cut the poor guy some slack.  All of us talk out of our rear ends from time to time.  For some of us, it's a daily occurrence.  smile

      Excellent point. There is also the fact to consider that I tasted Chinese beer for the first time only very recently and loved it - maybe he had been over-indulging...?

        He's been known to do that too. What beer did you try?

    I think it is more likely he did not say it at all.

    Interesting, what definition did he give for using that particular term, what someone says is not always what they mean.
