南京 was abandoned as the capital due to heavy fog that could conceal approaching armies, was it not? It seems 北京 is now not so different to its southern cousin... Smile

@Logica Humano don't know if this works. More top secret explanations why there was this crazy sea of fog

Do you think the little red book is a. good b. bad c. random ramblings ? I haven't read it, but one of the things I remember from reading Wild Swans was that she mentioned people learned the lines by heart and would repeat them as catchphrases to each other to show how patriotic they were.

Do you think patriotism is good ? I'm very against patriotism. I think it's a good tool for leaders to use to fool people.

Do you think Chairman Mao was a. good b. bad c. meh ?

Actually here's my real question: do you *trust* your government ? I think maybe my experiences have coloured my outlook, but I don't hold much faith in the government of any of the countries I've lived in. Partly because it's a difficult job to do right and partly because most politicians seem to be scheming evil bastards.

I love free world. Yet there are some sub types, American-British style, French-German style, Spanish-Italian style, Cyprus style, Mexican style, South American style and African style ... the Chinese style is also an option.

It is A in nature, but used and presented in a quite B way. I have one in my bookshelf. If you understand how this book was used in a B way, you then can find some philosophical value of this book.

Patriotism has its values in particular times, tough times mainly.

In peaceful times, it can easily blind people. But after all, we live in a material world. After getting high by patriotism, they will get low. Can't stay high forever and not good for these guys either.

Yet a love for one's country is also a natural emotion. Don't need to suppress it. Taking it to a rational degree is OK for everyone.

I think he was A from 1920's to 1960's, B from 1960's to 1970's. Widely acknowledge by many Chinese that he was a person with 70% good and 30% bad. Good at gathering useful things from philosophies and directing armies, bad at building a democratic society and developing the economy.

Like your own answer, I can't say simply 'I do trust' or 'I don't trust'. My answer is my government is doing OK, an updated and improved version compared to the past. The satisfaction index is about 65%, still needing a lot of improvement in the job market, stock market and government services. After the inauguration of the new Chairman, Mr. Xi, good things showed up. And I have wishes hopefully will be realized by this new Chairman.

Jesus fucking Christ, Morondog! Some decorum, please! You know how the Chinese government monitors internet behavior and keystrokes.

See? Sims City taught me something, mom... Dodgy

People are paying attention to the air condition in these days. Right now the air condition in Beijing is slightly close to moderately polluted.

I can make jokes about the gas and dust problems and feel entertained.(If you ever played Red Alert, you will understand.)

[Image: p.aspx?u=v20_p13_photo_1304070909457006_0.jpg]

Yet people in Beijing were not having a good time in those foggy days. And they are not going to have good air today.

Private cars gas emissions, industrial pollutants, lack of enough trees and grass to hold the soil northwestern to Beijing ... all these contributors are needed to be regulated in a wise and efficient way.

I cannot honestly believe that your air is so less polluted.

Your country's total disregard for the concept of environmental destruction is one of the many things that will inhibit you from maintaining your impressive growth. The insane levels of pollution forced the Environmental Protection Agency to create a new “black” level on the AQI scale, which is described simply as “beyond index.”

Beijing has been steadily placed in the 500 point range and above for years now. So unless your source's scale for grading differs, I'd say your propaganda-filled citing needs to take a back seat.

Pity you only get that freedom here at TTA.
Other aspects of your life are questionable.

Before we start, here are some announcements and rules.

[1] Authenticity guaranteed. I am a formal member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which means that I am a genuine communist.

[2] Purpose clarification.I live in mainland China and am a newcomer here. Therefore I'd like to meet folks around and let guys know something about me, my hometown and my homeland.

[3] Information ONLY, NO sarcasm, NO quarrels. I am here to provide information from a junior communist and a Chinese citizen perspective if you are INTERESTED and ask a question. I am here NOT to offend anyone, nor to take offence at any prejudiced commentary.

[4] Keep calm and easy. The same reason why you post a thread on the forum, I also want to be liked by you guys. Meanwhile you might satisfy your thirst for interesting news from this thread. So let's do it the harmonious way, OK?


What provides a check on corruption in the Chinese form of government? I know addressing corruption has been an initiative from your new leadership. However a system of centralized control seems inherently corrupt because it has absolute power. As the saying goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The US form of government provides checks and balances. Judiciary, legislative, and executive branches of government each have a way to restrict the actions of the other branches and in a way that roughly balances power so one branch has a hard time taking over everything. And ultimately, through elections and a free press there is accountability to the people. Even in this electoral accountability, appointments rather than elections of the Supreme Court and staggered terms of the offices of the Senate prevent the whims of the public from getting carried away with with passions of the moment. Add to this kind of system the State level of government, which is independent from the federal level.

In China, all power rests with one political party. The US has had its share of corrupt leaders, Richard Nixon being the most famous of examples. But we had a way of dealing with that when it happened--the press, the legislative branch, and the judiciary all worked to take down a president who abused his power. The American people trusted that this was not some kind of coup because of the free press being independent from government control or influence.

What exists in Chinese government to provide this level of accountability and what provides a check against abuse of power by the CCP?

RE: Ask a (GASP) CHINESE COMMUNIST ! ! !
Hopefully this won't get lost in the wash. I'm interested to know whether you have any particular thoughts about 孫逸仙 and his three principles of 民族, 民權 and 民生? They are I think not well understood in the West and I particularly feel I don't understand them properly.

The English translations are something like "nationalism", "democracy", and "welfare" - but these translations carry a great deal of baggage in the West. I feel that what is understood from these words in a Chinese sense is very different. I can understand nationalism tying together with the integrity of greater China and the cooperation and unity of the people, especially after so much foreign influence and invasion. Democracy I have a hard time understanding because in the West its meaning is quite specific. Democracy means that the will of the people can non-violently overthrow any government and seems individualistic. Welfare also I have a hard time understanding in the Chinese context because although I understand it can imply socialism or communism it seems again to be something individualistic and a little out of character with the Chinese approach.

Supplementary question. I know you were asked about Taiwan before, but I wanted to know if you have any reaction to a few specific phrases: 天地會, 三合会, and I don't quite know the translation but "Taiwanese gangsters"? Smile

Feel free to take this question one bite at a time Wink

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