The end justifies the means, eh?
When I lived in China, I was startled to find out that almost no one in that country knows how to swim. I asked why and was told that there is nowhere to learn how to swim. There are very few swimming pools available to the public, and the rivers and lakes are far too polluted to use for swimming. The amount of air pollution in China is also very noticeable. In Beijing, for example, even on a clear day one cannot see more than a few hundred yards. There is a perpetual yellow-brown haze that hangs over the city. The Olympic athletes are not going to like it there. Beijing air makes LA seem like Aspen.
