Hu's Favorite Tune: Imagine

Hu Jintao recently made a speech on the floor of the United Nations General Assembly that sounded suspiciously like John Lennon's most famous solo song, Imagine. Just compare the speech to the song:

HU: Eradicating the current unfair world economic order are preconditions to the world's balanced development, and in turn, harmony.

LENNON: Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of Man, imagine all the people, sharing all the world...
Yes, he speaks of tolerance, of the world living in peace and harmony, which he said was a 'traditional' Chinese characteristic. While Lennon's Marxist ideologies must bring on nostalgia in Mr. Hu, I'm sure his favorite line in the song is: "...and no religions too."

"Lennon's Marxist ideologies"?! How witty! Good thing he got shot through the heart, right?! Maybe you should add that Marxist ideology bit to his Wikipedia entry.

Well well, it seems the 25th anniversary of Lennon's assassination seems to have made some of his fans rather touchy...

I was merely trying to point out the utopianism of Hu Jintao's latest speech. If you can't take a joke, just don't read it. What sucks is your lack of net etiquette...
