Man kneels to millionaire to borrow life-saving money, morality hijack?
On June 30th, 2014, a man, together with 14 other people, kneels outside the New Hope building, holding a sign which reads" I am Mo Xiangsong, a university student with leukemia. I beg you to lend me one million life-saving money, and I will pay you back by working for you for my whole life." The person he begs is chairman of New Hope.|
Some people offer their sympathy to Mo, but at the same time, some netizens question his behaviour, thinking that he was hijacking morality, or using social opinions and moral ethics to force others to do something they would normally refuse.
Facing such a view, Mo says that it is because people don't know much about his family. Mo was adopted as a baby following his mother's suicide when he was just a few months old and his father was treated for severe mental issues when he was about one. His adoptive parents cannot afford further treatment after spending more than 100,000 yuan.
What do you think of Mo's behaviour? Is it a morality hijack? If you were the chairman of New Hope, would you lend money to him?
