History in the process of Europe and US developing are much more bloody. We draw a lot of experience from their history and are trying our best to maintain justice while keeping a fast development.In the process of developing, Europe and the US may have gone through great injustices. But does that mean that their experience and incorrect attitude should not teach us and instead just because they have done it, it means we too can do it? I don’t think so. One has to learn from others’ mistake too!!
Where did u see the "the huge repression" ? during that time, there are still a lot of foreigners in TIBET, from their videos uploaded to YOUTUBE, I found only hans being beaten to death, shops being set on fire, polices being attacked . Later, foreigners were forbidden in this area. And I don't think it anything wrong. Do u want more people see the hans being killed ? Like the Horrible movies, more people see, more teenagers would learn from it and become one of the murders. More videos about these things will only add to the hate between our people.Insurgents exist in many developing countries including India and they are being helped by outside interests. But in a democracy, everything that is happening is known since the media is open and none can gag them. In China, the media is of the State and only news that the CCP wants is known. When the Tibetan riots were on, the foreigners and foreign media was expelled and the CCP carried out huge repression that was only known through clandestine means. If such means were not used, none would know of the horrible repression done by the CCP.!
So u think learning Mandarin is forced by indirect pressure ? Mod Edit : This is not a thread where linguistic policy of GOI can be discussedWe did not leave the UK. India was not a part of Great Britain, it was a part of the British Empire. We were different people. We won our independence.
The Irish, Scots, Welsh, Celts etc are the people who make up the UK. The Irish separated because they were Catholics and they did not want to be under Protestant rule.
No. learning Mandarin is not wrong. It fact it is good to know as many languages one can learn. The issue is that it should not be forced, directly or indirectly. The operative word is – Forced! If one cannot get a good job or go to university just because they don’t know Mandarin, it means forcing one to learn the language by indirect pressure!!
If u know more knowllege about China history, u will find that at the beginning of 1900, a lot of Chinese began to cut their long hairs. and women abandoned their tiny-feet wraps.when Mao come in charge of the country in 1949,if u find a man with long hair or a woman with tiny feet, he/she must be over 60 years old. I still don't think eating dogs anything wrong, just like people elsewhere can eat beef.Not having long hair or small feet is because Mao forced the people to change. It has nothing to do with becoming westernized. It is part of Mao intelligent ways to tell the condition the Chinese people to realize that Mao’s diktats were the last word in everything. Hair and feet etc has nothing to do with becoming more civilized! Next, someone will say that not eating dogs (as the Chinese do) is a sign of the Chinese being civilized! There are many people in the world, including China, who think the dogs are a delicacy as some feel that frogs legs or eating snails (as in France) is a delicacy! !
Mod Edit : Stop Racial Attack , you can treat this as warning .No hans ever force Muslin eat porkI am not saying that the Uighurs can do anything they like and that has to be accepted. But if the Tibetans and the Uighurs want to maintain their own religion, culture and language, then it would be wrong to wipe such things out. It is like forcing a Muslim to eat pork. Just because the Hans love eating pork, if you force the Hui to also it pork, they will rebel. !
Like what I said before, some rules in religion and culture and out of date or anti-human or anti-coutry. We should take some measures to lead them to the right direction. What would your gov do if there is a religion that calls for rebellion to your gov ?you still respect their religion and let them develop as they want ?Of course, all countries want to unite their countries, but countries that are multi lingual, multi cultural and multi religious have to be more cautious while handling the minorities. One cannot force them to conform to the wishes of the majority.
In China, the so called religious freedom you have is under State supervision. Controlled religion. The Bishops are selected by your Govt; in fact on this issue there was much problem with the Vatican and the Pope. The CCP selects the Christian priest, the Muslim Imam and the Buddhist priests. All sermons are checked by the CCP apparatchik. That is no religion! That is why there are underground and illegal prayer meetings held in houses of Christians and Muslims. In Xinjiang, Muslims below the age of 18 are not allowed to attend the Mosque or have recourse to Islamic teaching. .!
We'll prove our success in democracy after we succeed in economy.Money is important in life, but to abandon basic human morality and lust only for money is not the right approach. Today, Russia and China are where they are is all because money making was pushed in the background and nation building was made the credo by ruthless dictators. And so a decadent people were herded to work for the State and the State looked after their earthly need. It is not idea, but people who are bone lazy possibly deserve such a shake up. It was not difficult for these dictators of USSR and Mao’s China because they did not know democracy in the first place. They were all under various rich landlords. !
Thanks for your suggestions. The gov has noticed this problem and is taking a lot of measures to better this situation.Anyhow we have to make the cake biger then everyone have the opportunity to get more. And this is the reason why see economy development as the first important thing.The lust for money and making money as the sole purpose of life leads to some getting rich and some remaining poor. Such disparity is what cause revolutions!
Already there is discontent between the people of rural China and the urban China, between western China and Coastal China!
