I wonder if a similar set of images for Western culture would be recognizable to the average Chinese guy ?

Your wish fulfilled. Tongue

Thanks for taking the time out to do this Smile

The rock star CUI Jian's song of 一无所有(Nothing to My Name) played for the activist on the Tiananmen Square in the protests. Of course, the protests have other names like the Tiananmen Square Slaughter / Massacre / Insurgency / Riot / Rebellion / Crackdown / Reorganization / Incident, depending on different points of view.
The Little Tigers, a Taiwanese boy band, issued their first album 新年快乐(Happy New Year)

Oh, it was a music festival then? Army was there for the crowd's amusement?

What was it in your point of view?

The People's Liberation Army was there to make sure the people stay liberated. So they used a tank to maintain the liberation of the people? So what? Tianamen Square is large, there was plenty of room for the tank, the band and the audience. The man in front of the tank was saying, "Stop driving the tank and come out and enjoy the music". He insisted they stop by standing in front of the tank. But the tank crew didn't get out because they enjoyed driving the tank. Chinese pop band or Tank: it's not that easy a choice because the tank would be fun to drive. No, it wasn't a music festival, it was a concert--with a tank.

It's polictical correctness gone mad when you can't have a tank in a public square without all sorts of innuendo and insinuation. Next you'll be saying that China is undemocratic and runs sham elections.

You are spreading counter-revolutionary Western imperialist propaganda.

I recommend a free game called World of Tanks, if you are also a tank lover. Without implications, I consider Type 59 as one of my favorite in the game.

First, do some descent googling first, please, will you ?

Second, I said in another thread that the essence of relations is benefit. Before your thoughts are sophisticated enough and prove worthy, I decline to provide my point of view on this to you with all due respect.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Not at all.

And I pretty much admire the work of the Japanese Right Wing hardcores. I definitely intend to pay them one day, in a peaceful form of course, unless they prefer otherwise.
