She should counter sue for the way he was staring at her.

Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehn, dass er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird. Und wenn du lange in einen Abgrund blickst, blickt der Abgrund auch in dich hinein.

I’m reminded of Uwe Vandrei, who flat-out admited to filling a lawsuit simply to get his target in the same (court)room as himself…

Aside from the whole ‘trivially frivolous lawsuit’ problem; does the Chinese state still have any of its officially atheistic stuff left over from its communist days? If so, that seems like a difficult venue to be suing for ‘spiritual damage’.

OK, well, but if the ‘damages’ you’re claiming are intangible then so should your ‘compensation’ for said ‘damages’ be intangible.

I used to have a lot of trouble with this, but then I realized that having all those actors stare at me is really a form of flattery, they are recognizing my awesomeness. When you think about it, it is probably quite hard for them to work right across a screen from me. Now that I understand this it doesn’t bother me. Also, I save a bunch of money on lawsuits.

I think this is another instance of China, as Jon Stewart so nicely put it, beating us at capitalism.

I am reliably informed that the “abyss” does not “stare back at you”. It “stares back into you”,

I’m not a fan of Nietzsche, but the difference in meaning is pretty important.


#14

The problem they had/have with organized religion is the organizing part, as an alternative to the state, rather than religious or spiritual beliefs.


#15

It is only important if someone is, say, writing a thesis on Nietzsche. Applying Nietzsche’s tortured psychology to some slightly delusional Chinese person, on the other hand, is not important at all.
