BLURB

In this modern age of the dog-eat-dog attitude, one must remember that thy neighbor may not always treat thy within the codes of the stone tablet. So why should it be any different in China? With the increase in billionaires has accompanied in an increase in elitism. Sports that have for long been associated with modern wealth: golf, polo, has now been prioritized for the nation’s top 10%. But a sport practiced since the dawn of time has taken lead – hunting. As the sport of past kings and royals, local wealth has taken it as a means of releasing anger, displaying their outrageous earnings or yet again, to put on view their imperial powers: that they can shoot as well as they can make money. [Jack Mur]
