Feng shui causes mysterious strife, of all places, China:

A decision by one of China's leading universities to promote a course in feng shui and architecture has opened a furious debate. [...] Feng shui - literally "wind and water" - was banned by the communists as an element of "feudal superstition". But it lived on in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the overseas Chinese community and became popular in the West in the 1980s and 1990s. [...] [W]hen Nanjing University's architectural culture institute offered courses in "architectural feng shui" it came under fire from the old guard of Chinese architecture, egged on, it was reported, by the Communist Party.
I think they just need a few more well-placed lucky frog statues.
