I do have to say that you will be one of those guys I normally would not reply on, because one of the first posts I see is an outcry that we are
agents and blablabla. Anyhow, I will give it a shot:
For each of your questions, I could write a whole essay about. But here is some comments and responses quickly.
Market driven China has been for a long time by now, transparant? Not yet, but in the more developed area this transparancy is slowly being shown.
Standard of living in rural areas is low, we are only a under-developed country with over 90% poor people. Basics to developed nations like a simple
black/white TV is a luxury to hundreds of millions.
Education level is improving fast still very low, because drop-outs is pretty high, economic driven, and it requires a higher requirement (monetary
and school results) for one to go to the university. Without a scholarship, many bright minds would need to start looking for a job at early age.
Minorities are freely to move to the more developed regions, namely "special economic zones". Tring, there is a "free will" involved, and these
minorities can decide where they want to live, nobody is forcing them to stay at their birth places. Would you trust me if I say that actually
minorities are having even more rights than Han Chinese? Like no one-child policy? Even more education subsidies?
Huh? What Warring States Era? Oh that quote. So you believe we only had tribes and kingdoms during the Warring States era?
Hmmmm. I will re-post
another post in here after I finished this one. It was a conversation with an American about the "foundation", he explained to me about the
constitution and some history, I also tried to explain a bit. Maybe it might shed more lights then.
Dutch? No the reason I am born and raised in Holland, doesn't mean my blood is not all Chinese
My family tree in Hong Kong goes back 27 generation
before my humble name pop up
Chinese diaspora because of wars, economic, political reasons and so on is very common and widespread for the past
centuries or maybe even earlier.
And I do not dare to give anyone a "lesson". This is a forum; holding conversations, debates and sharing of information, communications between
different people with different opinions and background and so on and so on, is her main purpose I always presumed. I might be more outspoken in
certain topics, because I do feel I can contribute more on it then someone only having listened the stories from afar or from some skewed media.
"Chinese unity is a lie". *sigh* Where are you living by the way? Ever checked the last months what is brewing and going on the the Overseas Chinese
communities? Ever bothered to even visit China and see it with your own eyes becfore making such a comment?
"And like I said, real Chinese people aren't on ATS." *Sigh*, At least for your own satisfaction, you are not the only one claiming these kinds of
accusations in ATS. A board supposed to be denying ignorance....
