‟There is an old Chinese proverb: Life is like a game of chess, changing with each move. And to win the game, you must often sacrifice your pawns.”
So begins a video uploaded to YouTube in April of this year by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This video is very different from others that the bureau has uploaded to its page. The FBI typically posts clips from press conferences about its efforts to bust child sex slavery rings or videos detailing new additions to its famous Most Wanted list.
This particular clip, entitled Game of Pawns, is something wholly new. The half-hour-long movie is a surprisingly high-quality dramatization aimed at educating young Americans college students about whether or not they should become Chinese spies.
