I am a Chinese student study in UK. Sorry to waste your time if you have seen this post since I have posted it on one other thread.
Please don't look our govement like north korean, we are totally different... If we are still follow the political and economic policies of the
USSR, we won't get any better in any of our situations, we either will end up like USSR with the poor economic or even worse than north korean. You
should know it's not easy to solve the food problem for a county of over 1 billion population with very limited plantable land with the weston
pressure after half century of civil war and foreign invasive war. Russian didn't help us, korean didn't help. We can only rely on ourself and we
solevd it much better.
Yes, we are socialism. But wht's whrong with socialism, we are not some kind of extremism socialism and deny every thing of capitalism. But we paid a
lot of attentions to learn from capitalism.I have to mention the intention of socialism is A social system in which the means of producing and
distributing goods are owned collectively and political power is exercised by the whole community. Can you say it's a bad a intention. but from the
collapse of many socialism countries, we know we need our own kind of socialism system. we call it the socialism with Chinese characteristic which
comband the advantages of socialism and the advantages of capitalism.
You may always think all the chinese people have been brainwashed. Their govement is autocratic. They have no freedom to speech, ........ There are
over 2 millions of chinese oversea students all over the world. Most of them speak English read the weston media news. If the govement is autocratic
like you may think. Then the govement should be very worried about their autocratic regime. Better don't let students go aborad to know what the
real weston world democracy is. since govement know they are different in some way but there is no much differnces and they getting similar in
nowadays, So they are not worrying too much....
I have been UK for 7 years since my A levels. I am going back next year after my Master degree. Because the situation there is not like what you may
think. I see more development opportunities there than UK. human rights is not actually like weston always said. we do have free speech, we can
protest as long as you don't go to violence, we can taunt our govener anywhere..If you go to the Chinese formal govement newgent XINHUA news forum
website, you will see lots of the criticized debate about current govenment policies and goveners all over the country, which also is the forum what
our prime minister often visit to see the real voice from people......
Someone may criticise about Falun gong, Go to some most popular chinese oversea or indigenous student websiite forum....See How people say about
Falun gong, 99.9999999% chinese students whereever they are, they know Falun gong is just kind of swindler, they aim to the uneducated people in
china. there have been so many extremist suicide cos believe they can go to paradise.
And a real Example, my uncle had encephalomyelitis five years ago, but his situation was not that bad by taking medical treatment at that time. but he
insist not to take any treatment after he start to Falun gong as what Falun gong told people not to take any medical treatment and Falun will cure any
sickness if you believe it. He died after 1 year he pratice the idot Falun and stop his medical treatment... I am really shame and sick to see the
Fanlun people protest anywhere in UK.
Every country got their own problems, Especially, for a big country with 1.3 billion populations have 56 different minority groups. So the democracy
has to be gradually and very carefully in a big nation, not at once. We don't want to be second russia( no offensive to russian, I mean govement
policies). We will have fully democracy it's just factor of time cos what i can see is democracy is getting better and better everyday and the
situation now it's not bad at all.........We don't want fully copy of american democracy because it just won't suit us fully cos we have different
culture and ideology.
We don't hate american. Our relations between US are getting better and better. We hope to be friend not enemy but please don't create your enemy by
yourself. Our culture determined we were and wil never a aggressive nation even in our age of richest and strongest nation in the world(Ming dynasty
and Tang dynasty)
Please open your mind my friends to understand and respect the differences of nation's culture, history, religion and beliefs.
