Confucius Says, When In Chinese Prison...

 

Changchun Beijiao prison in northern China has begun teaching Confucius to prisoners as a method of rehabilitation. The prisoners receive the sayings of Confucius on closed circuit televisions in their cells.

Prison warden Yang Mingchang said, "The studies of Chinese traditional culture can help inmates cultivate virtues and form good behaviors."

Confucius was an ancient philosopher who taught that individual self-refinement could lead to a harmonious society. His works were popularized by the rulers of the Western Han Dynasty before spreading to Europe in the latter part of the 16th century.

was strongly denounced by the communists during the Cultural Revolution in Mao-era China. The source, however, is a Chinese newspaper and saying such things may be seen by the authorities as... well... impolite. Probably not a promotional bellringer in terms of your career to say so either.

  Say...  
 
Man who goes to sleep with itchy butt wake up with smelly finger.

I'd like to hear that jokes aswell.

I'd also like to hear that they're teaching how to apply these quotes of wisdom to the real, current, UP TO DATE world. It's bad enough they're institutionalized, already in the past because they've been locked away for years, and now they're learning ancient quotes? How would they react when coming out? Would they survive. I guess we'll find out...
