i agree with the initial post, otherwise why does so many foreign countries try to slow china down (rhetoric)? if it weren't for envy, there is no other reason



China is a large multi-ethnic nation with a long and varied history.
Even though western forces try, they will never succeed in slowing China down!

All her history and people, her science, art and thought has now risen.
No force or trick will stop or slow her.
the anglos are rsponsible for ...

china is merely rising up to the level of the developed nations, most of which are part of the 'western' civilization.  once it meets that level, far in the future, there will be parity, and maybe the chinese inferiority/superiority complex will lessen.

believing that china, or any other culture or civilization, is superior is magical thinking, superstition.  china's rise isn't due to superiority: it's due to striving by its citizens for better living standards.  everyone wants this.  westerners already have these living standards, so don't need to strive so hard for them: this doesn't make them inferior.

and, western nations do not envy china.  they fear parity.  in modern times the west has not had to deal with an equal, and non-western, competitor.  western motives are in self protection, not in something so vulgar as 'envy'.

2009 is going to be a ball buster for them.



If your prediction comes true, it´ll be an even bigger ball buster for T41w4n. Your adopted home is closely linked with the mainland. But then again, as an Indian, you´re certainly not concerned about this.

This was a comment by another poster:

Nothing wrong with having pride for one's ethnicity, culture or country, BUT "pure race, superior culture" smacks of evil Nazi/ white supremist thought.  The world has seen enough of  arrogant, ugly Americans (USA!USA!WE'RE #1!!)   We don't need to see them replaced by arrogant, ugly Chinese along with  segments of  extreme nationalists (Hindus, S.Koreans, Japanese, Islamic fundamentalists), each sharing the warped belief of their own superior race while judging others as inferior.  One who is truly superior doesn't need to rub it in everyone's face, unless being universally hated is the goal.

It's truly a source of pride that China claims the longest continuous civilization of 5000 years, being an inspiration and model to Asia in the ancient world. But along with the outstanding were flaws and injustices. Otherwise there would not have been peasant uprisings toward the end of each dynastic cycle.

The Manchu rulers of the Qing Dynasty saw themselves as superior, resisting knowledge from the outside world. Modern day Chinese supremists should ponder the consequences of arrogance as Qing China grew weaker and crumbled from complacency.
