well i must admit your point in the variety of official news sources--china does not have as many as west.
but that is what the internet is for
. you have to see it for yourself to actually know just how massive the chinese internet community is. and with
a population of nearly 1.35 billion (at least half of which is in urban areas in latest demographics), it isn't so hard to believe that there are so
many chinese websites and forums.
that is where I get my news from because I am aware of chinese government corruption (every government is corrupt if anyone has not noticed yet).
contradictory to what apparently seems to be popular belief on these ATS forums (and maybe to other westerners as well), we chinese are actually very
aware and active in the sense of what goes on in our own government from forums not so different from these (not always as fancy
I read threads posted on chinese blogs and forums with unofficial photos and videos, not provided by my government. also, if some people still think
it's all propaganda by chinese government, well, all the governments put together in the world simply could not generate so many threads in
uncountable amounts of websites at this rate, quite obviously we are not part of some secret organization and are just normal people like you with
family, jobs, and a normal life.
some of you say that we don't criticize our own government. well, we do. we're humans, too, and so we naturally investigate what we find skeptical.
you just don't see this happening because obviously we discuss this in chinese amongst each other, not on english forums like ATS.
But I have a question. if you can believe that your own government is corrupt as well and you admit they have issues, too, if you believe that 9/11
really was part of a corrupted government campaign just as is with the iraqi war (supposedly freeing them), is it so hard to believe that they are
also running other campaigns not yet unearthed to the general public?
what if I told you that for centuries the west has been trying to become the best in the world? that is quite obvious with america's rise to a
superpower and its participation in the cold war. But to become a superpower, it obviously must eliminate and weaken other countries, that makes
it is also public knowledge that over recent years china has been growing more and more powerful, therefore a greater threat to current superpower,
the U.S., that much is obvious. so what is the U.S. going to do about it? let china just take over? china has much greater population, a big
advantage. will U.S. just sit and watch as they become dominated by China? no, obviously something must be done.
thus you have it, their attempt to split china apart. divide and conquer. first Taiwan, then Tibet. and before that, too. China was once much larger.
was conqured by british, a previous world power. opium war?
I love my country, ok? I know where my country's corruption lies and we are humans. we don't randomly kill Tibetans and shoot bullets into hundreds
of them. I HAVE TIBETAN RELATIVES. the rioting tibetans are mostly the newer generation.
maybe one day the world will settle down, but that is only a hope, a fight for truth.
