How should we regard the hijacking of ethics? (Maybe: ‘using religion for political ends’)
Too much desire to be an Internet celebrity? Has your sense of esthetics been hijacked?
I don't want to let my daughter continue to experience the current hijacking of esthetics. (Maybe: he doesn't want his daughter to have anorexic super-models as role models.)
In the text below, 绑架 refers to the hijacking of people's opinions through the medium of strong nationalism. (Personally, I think the 共产党 is doing a good job of ruling China. Is your country's government perfect?)
Anti communist rant （not from me):
The Communist Party's current method of ruling China is no different to rulers in feudal times,
that is, use nationalism to hijack ordinary people's opinions.
It is reasonable to say that
other nationalities would not be so easily mislead,
but the Chinese man in the street is, unfortunately, easy to delude,
because his opinions have been hijacked from the beginning,
he just doesn't know it.
(I suppose the American man in the street is all so clued up. As long as he can keep his rifle to shoot school kids and Afro-Americans, he doesn't even register that he has a government.)
