Rouge1,the first reaction that an individual such as yourself has to being faced with an alternative perspective ,one which forces you to accept a
reality that you are not prepared to accept(once you hear or read it ,its like medicine--isnt it?) --is to attempt to iniate a conflict ,your limited
ability to absorb others perspectives is like a handi-cap ,it cripples your ability to progress,therefore you hold on to your own ideas and put up a
wall .This is how it is supposed to be.You are holding on by your fingernails to a perspective that your mind? tells you is wrong,but your lack of
ability to accept change without it being spoonfed to you is holding you in intellectual quicksand ,and you had better stop squirming and settle down
before you sink even deeper,or put out you hand and let someone pull you out of the pit you seem to have found yourself in.
I accept your perspective and momentarily it is enjoyable to observe your struggle to grasp ahold of a new perspective because this is usually a sign
of growth and progress,but discussing issues with you in an adversarial manner is like kicking puppies,it just isnt right.You seem so defenceless.
I am glad you enjoy your time in China it is a beautiful country,and I am sure you have been able to find more to eat than rice,hows your immigration
application coming along?
Im not attacking you,I truly believe that you dont belong in America,simply because your heart is in China .You are welcome in Canada we take anyone
here mostly because we believe in multi-cultural diversity and lord knows with your particular mindset you need to be immersed in a society that
promotes diversity ,you see diversity encourages change which is tantamount to education which is exactly what you are lacking.you should seriously
consider a change of address,at the very least you should renounce your American citizenship.
I dont have to question wether or not your lack of education regarding the current global crisis is a reflection of Americas educational or social
system,because I believe that it is you as an individual who is choosing to remain "in the dark"if you will.I would never look to the least informed
,educated ,or able individual in a group to gain a perspective of all of the members of that group.I dont believe that you could possibly fit into any
category other than the aforementioned.
By the way I'm not sure what type of woodsheds you have where you live but I hope that you werent bent over in yours because thats the first time I
have heard a reference like the one you provided.Well I guess we are sharing perspectives after all arent we?
If it is possible could you stretch it out a little and try to find some new and improved perspectives because it does get a little old hearing about
your "wonderful experiences in China".
If you have listened to even a small fraction of what has been said on this thread you should realise that YOUR ABILITY TO PROPERLY AND ACCURATELY
REPRESENT THE LIVING CONDITIONS OR THE SOCIO-POLITICAL CLIMATE IN CHINA IS TAINTED BY YOUR PERSONAL INABILITY TO ACCEPT NEW PERSPECTIVES AND YOUR
SEEMINGLY ADOLESCENT TENDENCY TO RESORT TO SQUABBLING AS A MEANS OF HIDING YOUR SHORTCOMINGS.
Spend thirty or forty years in China then you might have the ability and the experience to espouse your current views,you as a special case might need
fifty or sixty years,AND DONT FORGET THAT IMMIGRATION ISSUE BECAUSE YOU DONT DESERVE THE PROTECTION AND SUPPORT OF YOUR CURRENT HOMELAND,THIS WOULD
ONLY ALLOW YOUR UNDERDEVELOPED PERSPECTIVE TO REMAIN INTACT.
Your holidays or your english language teaching exchange(maybe you should come to Canada I seem to need a little of your good old American knowhow)
or your walkabout or whatever you claim asthe reason you have been in China is absolutely irrelevant.
You my friend are a tourist plain and simple,so every time you make a reference to your personal experiences in China you sink even deeper into that
intellectual quicksand you are stuck in.
Do you think that a visitor from a village in China who has never spoken into a telephone or looked at a computer screen ,but has been to Vegas a
couple of times would ,have the ability to make an informed decision as to the state of Americas social,political,or economic situation??
Open up your mind a little Rouge1 and join the rest of the world,start to utilise the massive amount of resources available to you IN YOUR OWN GREAT
COUNTRY AMERICA to expand your limited perspective on the country you have only "visited",how could you undervalue your own personal situation and
thereby opportunity to help the world help the Chineese people by remaining this underinformed?
Until you surrender your passport on the other side of the Chineese border and renounce your American citizenship,with the intent of totally immersing
yourself into the Chineese culture WITHOUT THE PROTECTION OF AMERICA THE COUNTRY I STILL DONT BELIEVE YOU DESERVE TO BE A PART OF your thoughts are
random and fractured at best. Your perspective considering your lack of real world experiences outside of tourism makes you hard to believe and it
also makes it hard to understand your almost manic perspective on America and Chinas positions in the world.
