The Chinese New Year - Year of the Golden Rabbit

This should be a placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year. Good taste and refinement will shine on everything and people will acknowledge that persuasion is better than force. Diplomacy, international relations and politics will be given a front seat again. We will act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without too much difficulty. One warning: do not become too self-indulgent. The influence of the Rabbit tends to spoil those who like comfort and thus impairs their effectiveness and sense of duty when action is needed.
