I hope China's economy collapses and their people finally get freedom from the revolution. More art will be destroyed but the people will be free so...yeah

The only thought that occurred to me is how the article makes China / Chinese people / firms so intent on "recovering" art that was "stolen" in any way necessary because in their view it was stolen so they can use any means to get it back, and it was so unjust for it to be stolen etc.

But on the other hand...IP theft doesn't bother them in the slightest. Hypocrites.

Interesting read.

I can't say that I disagree with the views expressed by the Chinese here, however; if items were stolen from my home, then my great grandchildren decided these items belong to them, you can't simply walk into other people's homes and take what is there because it belonged to our family first.
