no, of course its not at its best, and far from it. unfortunately, reform can go either way. so if youre talking about dogmatic reforms, then of course id rather keep things the way they are

PAPAI: how convenient of you leaving out all the bullying, where getting beat up is part of the american school experience. dont matter if its elementary, or ...
Wow, your bigotry is unbelievable. I didn't avoid mentioning bullying. You're so pathetic. You can't accept anything good about America or anything bad about China. LOL It's not like bullying is foremost in my mind, because decades ago it practically didn't exist, or it wasn't prevalent like it is today. Never heard of anyone getting bullied in school. Never even heard of the word back then. Back then, never heard of things like police brutality, either. The police actually gave me a free ride home in their car when I was a kid stuck at the local library because it closed early. America has changed, and not for the better.

With people like you, or an education like yours, if I were the white Americans, I wouldn't worry about China's so-called rise. China with people like you in it, will never be able to reach the greatness that America had. They were great for many reasons, and the reasons were all legitimate.

PAPAI: oh i think we're both disapointed in china, but for opposite reasons
Oh, please. Don't use "we" because it disgusts me to be put in the same group as you. If you are disappointed in China, then I changed my mind, I'm not.

PAPAI: the stuff you spew makes no sense at all.  i believe in that same interview, he thought he believed in western democracy, and he saw through the sensa ...
OMG, are you still debating about democracy vs communism?? LOL That debate died a long time ago. And the US is a constitutional republic, it's not even a democracy. ...Anyway, the Russians love Putin, and people who aren't blind can see why. He's just an example I gave. It isn't necessary to use him as an example. Look what is happening to Venezuela today with its adoption of communism. People are starving. For a person who gets his knowledge from the internet, you sure don't know anything about communism, that is responsible for more deaths than any other system in the history of mankind. Communism does the same thing to any country that adopts it, and if you're still in denial, then I can't help you.

Another thing, don't go around calling people "son"....first of all, I'm not a guy. Secondly, you aren't good enough.

your bigotry is unbelievable. you did avoid mentioning bullying. You're so pathetic. You can't accept anything bad about america or anything good about china. It's not like bullying is foremost in your mind, because your job is to cover up western filth. america, canada, australia, and new zealand were founded on bullying, so when you lie like that, it just discredits you. youre even worse of a liar than alex jones. at least he talks about how bad america is, albeit while lying about other things. america has ALWAYS had bullying, you just didnt notice it because you were the one bullying others. oh im sure you heard of plenty of people getting bullied, you just dont want to talk about it, because youre hear to talk about what youre paid to talk about.
you never heard of police brutality, because the west always covers up stories like that, and because you live in a globalized world today, stories get out. and its not like police brutality didnt happen. it definitely did. there are lots of videos circulating of cops beating people during the civil rights movement. i wouldnt worry about china rising either if china daily allows people like you to contaminate the forum. news flash, america was never great, and until they get rid of people like you, it will never be great. anyone who studies history knows america was founded on illegitimate savagry. americas 'greatness' always depended on the misery of others. the land was robbed by force, and native were mudered with brute force, and continues to be opresed. blacks were enslaved. and even today, 1 in 3 black males must go to prison at some point in their life. i guess if you cant enslave them, you might as well throw them in a cage. muslims are abused. hispanics live in fear. asians are dragged off planes. america has always been like that, and how could it not be, as america was founded by colonists who stopped at nothing for land grabs, and slicing native americans up. the native americans treated whitey to thanksgiving dinner, and whitey repaid them with a bulet to the head. thats the america that you dont want to talk about. but im here to remind you. life is not what your manuals say it is. thats the american dream, or perhaps.... nightmare

This is my last response to you. I can accept bad things about the USA. I never said it was perfect. But my guess is the 50s-90s USA was the best the world has ever known. My 5th grade teacher was a Native American. There was no discrimination. I didn't even know she was different until much later. I didn't see any discrimination against blacks in my school. There was a student with AIDS in our classroom, and the teacher was extremely kind to him, and it taught us kids to be kind to people with special needs. ...Anyway, I don't deny that the Native Americans were savagely killed in mass when the white men first landed in America. But that's not the USA I am talking about. And, you are comparing that to communism, which is not comparable, because an invasion is not a political system. Chinese education system did a great job closing up people's minds. And then you will deny you are Chinese. But all you can do is copy me and switch words around. You have shown again and again you have zero creativity.

I just feel like I should mention how things work in modern China, according to PAPAI. I say, I didn't avoid mentioning bullying because it didn't even cross my mind, but Chinese like "PAPAI" can't accept that because he's used to having the government dictate everything to him. So he insists I did, even though he's not me. Either that, or he's just used to dishonesty all around him, and can't accept it when people are actually being honest. He's never lived in the USA, and I'd bet he's never had any white American friends; yet he insists he knows everything about American culture, but everything he says is what we get from reading stuff on the internet. He calls the Americans selfish, but the Americans don't litter everywhere and care nothing for others or the environment. He doesn't know how charitable Americans can be. I've been in this restaurant in rural USA, and there was a customer there who was a millionaire, and she would order a drink for US$1-2, but she would leave a tip of $10, and the waiters there tell me she does that all the time. All he talks about is what the big charities are doing, pocketing the money for themselves, but they don't represent the majority of the American population. Americans are just as shocked to learn these things are going on. ...He has no idea how generous the Americans are on an everyday level, but this is something he will never know about, because he's too close-minded. All he does is look for bad things about the USA, but they don't become great for no reason. China is on a rise only economically, everyone knows how dead the Chinese are spiritually and ethically and culturally. Sorry to say, as I want to be proud of China, but there's something wrong with many of the people there. TOO BAD. I've interacted with people all around the world, and one of the worst was interactions with the Mainland Chinese. And I can't even call it racism. There are some very nice and polite Mainland Chinese, but a lot of them have self-esteem and insecurity and stupidity issues that make interaction with them extremely unpleasant. Of course, not all Americans are nice, some of them when they come to Asia do let things get to their head, but most Americans are much more pleasant to deal with. Chinese are just so freaking unhappy, some of them in real life, many of them online, that all they do is spread their misery around.

There are some good things about Chinese people that I just LOVE, but it's in spite of what communism did to them. ...I love how Chinese people do business, especially the honest ones, because the Americans aren't as good at business. If you want a good discussion, talk to the Americans. If you want to do business, talk to the Chinese. Why are the Alibaba/Taobao lines so successful? Have they become bigger than Amazon? ...So China is not all bad, but it's only good economically. But why do Chinese men like to mumble when I talk to them? Sometimes I ask a simple question, but they will talk around the answer and only give me an answer 5 minutes after talking about something else. ....

I really want to love Beijing and northern China, because I want to visit an Asian country that snows. But I have no interest in Korea or Japan. So I really hope that Chinese people can re-build China into a happier country, because I really would love to visit often and interact with the happy people there.

China is too westernized nowadays, but it didn't take the good things from the west, like the cleanliness. It only imported the consumerism mentality that has made a lot of people unhappier.

last response eh? what? they only pay you to do x number of responses? i accept bad things about china too, and i also never said china was perfect. but my guess is 66-67 china was the best the world has ever known. your 5th grade teacher was a native american, therefore there was no discrimination. you cant argue with logic like that. if there was no discrimination, the civil rights movement wouldnt have took off. in fact, there wouldnt have been a civil rights movement at all. if 1 in 3 black men are being locked up today, you can only imagine the horror that negros, and natives had to endure in your era. lol be kind to people with special needs. dont make me laugh. you aint going to say it, so i;ll say it. they call special ed kids short busers, and the ridicule never ends. its that way in the states, and in all western countries. you said that comunism has killed more people than any other system. well im telling you right now that capitalism has killed 100 times more. almost every single civil war in africa has a capitalist hand in it. american education system did a great job closing up peoples minds. just read what some of the shils on here are spewing and thats all the proof you really need. i never said i was chinese though, you just assume that i am. i wouldnt be copying you if i changed words around, especially if the end product comunicates an opposite message to what youre trying to spew.i dont think youve shown any creativity either, because you sound just like every other shil on youtube, facebook, and google. many people 1 brain. thats what makes shils so easy to spot. you all sound the same, and naturally you would because you receive the same training..

there are some good things about chinese people that i just love too, but it's in spite of what capitalism did to them. what was most impressive about china was its ability to resist inperialism and become a leader in the field. no other country in the world put in as much work as china did in the 60s to liberate the 3world, arm them, and train them. and no other country has matched that level of resistance since. what was even more impressive was how china was able to back the likes of martin luther king to bring the revalution right to the inperialist's doorstep. here are some other things that you got to love about china, and they are things that china did in direct disobedience to the west. beidou satelite system. the 2nd most advanced in the world after usa. building the islands in thr south china sea to defend the territories of china, again at the disaproval of the west. steel- when the west told china to stop producing steel, china said no, and decided to produce what was fit for china. internet- when the west comanded china use google instead of baidu, china was one of two countries in the world who said no. when the west demanded china to use facebook, again, china said no, and came out with weibo. we can say that today, no other country in the world dares to disobey the west, and china is the only one. for these reasons, you must take your hats off to china. if china decides to take things one step further and build a canal in thailand (despite the west's orders not to) to bypass singapore, china has claimed its place as a rising power. naturally the west would want china to use visa, and mastercard, and get rid of union pay, but isnt it great to know that china said no. imagine how much money paypal would make if there was no alipay. so how refreshing is it to know that alipay is here, and paypal can sit on the sidelines to watch. if you want to listen to a broken record and dogma, then talk to americans. and if that doesnt work, then you can talk to australians, and so on. americans in america are ok people, but americans who travel abroad. those are the parasites that you got to watch out for. has it ever occured to you that chinese men just dont want to talk to you. or chinese women for that matter. maybe they just know trash when they see it. if youre looking for clear, and immediate answers, you can always go back to your own country. youre right about china being too westernized, but i dont think the west is all that clean either. theres trash all over the streets of all the major western cities.
