Discuss Bonestructure's answer to: Today's Chinese spirit

Andy Lau is now the China spiritual pillar, I ask whether the death of Andy Lau, China will die?

I'd put Jackie Chan above Lau. John Woo is also quite important. As far as the spiritual condition of China, they're struggling a bit. Shaolin Temple is still strong and influential. But as China works to move forward, they're also putting a lot of effort into reclaiming their history and culture, arts and skills that were literally destroyed under Mao. That includes the older philosophies like Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and others. I think once the old guard communist leaders are gone and China moves further toward capitalism and democracy, they will become a much more stable country and will move forward well. It's all the old boys that are holding them back and causing conflict, but even the old boys know communism is failing and will not last. It's history. No form of government which does not benefit the Chinese people as a whole has ever survived. The people change it, over time, to a form of leadership that benefits everyone. This has always happened over the centuries to China, one of the oldest advanced civilizations ever known.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.
