Почему в Китае толпа — это не угроза, а искусство

Что мы знаем о китайцах? Во-первых, их много. Во-вторых, они похожи друг на друга. И еще они очень дисциплинированные. Это все, что требуется, чтобы устраивать впечатляющие акции, когда на площадь выходят тысячи людей и ухитряются встать точно там, где нужно. А их утренние занятия гимнастикой… Полчища китайцев по всей стране замирают в одной позе в едином порыве быть здоровыми. Про военные парады и говорить нечего.
