Non è vero che in Cinese CRISI e OPPORTUNITA si scrivono allo stesso modo

Sfatiamo questa interminabile bugia ( forse pietosa) Non è affatto vero che in cinese CRISI e OPPORTUNITA hanno lo stesso ideogramma. In realta l'ideogramma significa "PERICOLO INCIPIENTE"

The  of wēijī, in fact, means something like “incipient moment; crucial point (when something begins or changes).” Thus, a wēijī is indeed a genuine crisis, a dangerous moment, a time when things start to go awry. A wēijī indicates a perilous situation when one should be especially wary. It is not a juncture when one goes looking for advantages and benefits. In a crisis, one wants above all to save one's skin and neck! Any would-be guru who advocates opportunism in the face of crisis should be run out of town on a rail, for his / her advice will only compound the danger of the crisis.
