Pardon if the question has been asked before... I honestly couldn't read all the posts/replies yet, but look forward to reading them... Yes ...how do you get through the whole internent censorship? I used to do it abit when I was in high school tricking the internet nanny programs so I could get to my favorite sites, but I think yours would be slightly more heavy-duty. And when I say 'slightly', I mean butt-hurt.

Have a good one,

CTS

I guess you will be 'slightly' surprised.

I paid about $7 a month to my ISP. And here I am.

Praise capitalism !

I change the letter M for Mario on his hat, to H my surname initial. Is it cool ?

I didn't say "needed". It's not even quite "have to" because the main cause is not to get "re-education" which word I comprehend and understand that people from the west sometimes have an obsession with when they pass by a Chinese dude...

OK. Chinese Modern History 101.

In the 1950's, China set out to realize communism, which they thought and planned as that it would be done with in a short time, best a decade or so.

They achieved great things. They made horrible mistakes.

In the early 1960's, the climate was bad, natural disaster caused nation-wide famine, which was amplified greatly by man-made causes. Many died. Sigh ...

Not enough food in the countryside. Less in the metropolises.

The solution was to spread the city youth all over the countryside, especially those grain-producing areas. One, it was closer, therefore less cost and waste during the transporting and distribution process. Two, they were youth, they could help.

Mao said that this was a good thing, and that the youth could be re-educated by working, not like, but as peasants, in steel and temper indeed.

Now you can see the word "re-educate" is somewhat helpless, somewhat optimistic and somewhat chaffing.

My mother's story.

The leader said ' Go to the rural. It is a vast world, full of opportunities. ' And in the early 1970's The city was still hungry.

My mom then traveled about 516 kilometers in a heavily crowded train to the rural. Worked for 2 years as a peasant. Spent another 3 years studying, working and gradually coming to my city.

Life as a peasant (not farmer, not farm worker) was HARD at that time.

She grumbled more a lot over the hardship there. But she said she became strong and optimistic all the way along.

OK. Now, what about this 're-education' for you ?

A little bit less than 'a lot'

I am now playing 'The World of Tanks', a free game. It's really cool.

I just ordered a old gamecube, here's the ebay picture : http://i.ebayimg.com/t/gamcube-console-a...~60_12.JPG

I really want to get the metroid prime series for this, as well as Zoid's legacy.

What do you mean by "interesting, yet again, to see the correlation between wish-thinking and fear / uncertainty about the future" ?

And what do you mean by "Chinese propensity for poetic phrases"? Any quote?

I just meant that there is an obvious link between fear of the unknown and wishful-thinking / irrational belief, or as you put it "But when things get tough, the memories of past sufferings come to live vividly and drive people crazy snapping up anything they can get. Elders have profound memories of hardships, therefore are more deeply influenced by such instinct."

And you responded with something about "iron and steel" so I thought you were being poetic.

Example of poetic language... I once asked my Hokkien-speaking flatmate to translate something she had said when she met one of my younger girlfriends and she said there was no literal translation to English but it was something like "old cows like to chew young grass". Thing is, she had only used a word of two syllables in her native tongue.

I stand corrected. I was intentional to say that it was possibly NOT the fear of UNKNOWN, but the fear of KNOWN, for those who had had a lot of hardship from the scarcity periods.

And yes, we are a people speaking in metaphors, I guess. It's indirect. It's like a puzzle you need to guess a little. It's fun, at least for me, sometimes.

And don't get me start on the Lolita style explanation of "old cows like to chew young grass". We do have lots and lots of metaphors like this.

So you are right !

He's skirting censorship by using a proxy server in Mountain View, CA, USA.

Either with or without the Chinese government's cooperation.

For Youtube, YES. For a reason. Recommend the 'A bite of China' video.

I am now off proxy. Mr. Science, willing to test again?

Sincerely yours,

A guy with cooperation with the Chinese government, which I really don't know how to disprove.

Blame those Chinese government officials who didn't arrange better technology for me, which now makes the whole operation a JOKE !

I like you Chas, for being so cute.

I told you I am a Chinese COMMUNIST. You should have got that in the beginning.

For your information, Google and GoAgent helped me. SUE Them in court !

According to what you have said, the Chinese Real Estate bubble is even more serious than I thought. Does China have a plan to rid itself of the Real Estate Bubble?

Thanks.

Praise capitalism and the human nature craving for profits !

Chinese government do have plans, except all of which didn't work that well, or at all maybe.

There are guys in the government or affiliated with the government who made lots of money. And there are international hot money.

It's hard.

Actually,

Many Chinese people wish, whether jokingly or not, that the U.S. INVADE China ASAP so that the HOUSING PRICE would DROP to affordable levels.

Are you willing to help?
