A reporter in China visited a local media center, and saw pages of requirements for photographers on how to take photos for communist leaders stuck on the wall. There are dozens of requirements, including: light exposure must be good to show the positive aspect of the leader; choose the right posture of the leader; do not include food in the photo when leaders are having meal; do not include people holding umbrella for the leader....

The photos below were spread around China when former communist head, Jiang Zemin was in power, they were taken while Jiang was at a national congress meeting.

During the Ming dynasty, Wang Yanxu, a boatman from Taiyuan, borrowed one ling 8 qian of silver from a wealthy man. Wang died before he paid back his debt.

One day, the wealthy man saw Wang Yanxu, with a white band tied on his waist, walking into the cattle pen. Moments later, someone told the wealthy man that a cow had given birth to a calf. The wealthy man went to look and saw the young animal had a white line on its waist.

When the young calf grew up, the wealthy man told his cattle man to sell the animal for one liang 8 qian. A butcher bought the cattle for that price.

Later, a farmer saw the calf was very strong and healthy. So he offered the butcher 2 ling 6 qian for the animal. The calf was good at plowing and didn't need any care for it. But one day, the farmer was very sad to find the animal was dead.

The farmer found out later that the calf had been sold by the wealthy man for only one liang 8 qian. He asked the wealthy man why he sold it for such a low price. The wealthy man said: "Because Wang Yanxu only owed me one liang 8 qian."

Upon hearing this, the butcher was enlightened: "Wang Yanxu owed me 8 qian. That was why I sold the cattle for 8 qian more."

Later, the farmer also realized suddenly: "I once owed Wang Yanxu money. Now I have paid it back."

Heaven balances every thing, without the slightest error in the cause and effect. When one seems to gain certain advantages, he needs to pay back towards the end. When one harms another, one will repay accordingly.
