I suspected your disagreements were relatively minor, I was right.

A soft agenda? And what exactly would that be?

As far as my disagreements being minor, you are correct. I do not live in China so I am not impacted by some of the more major things there. I think the only child policy needs rethinking and that China needs to regulate certain industries much more than it does now. Hukou still doesn't quite make sense to me. What else is there? I do not have access to the historical documents surrounding Tibet or the Diaoyu islands, so I can't really speak on those matters except from my own experiences in Tibet.

I  have read you admiration for China (including the Chinese females) and it´s fine.

Feel free to open some thread with questions about China history and lets see how lucky you will be to get fair answers.
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Most of them are relatively minor.

The whole hukou system seems a bit odd to me. I have a friend ...

The system of showing ID in order to buy a train ticket is relatively new and was brought in to stop scalpers buying lots of tickets for trains at peak times and then selling them on at a profit, now the system only allows one ticket per ID per train. It is rare that the ticket and the ID are compared however it does happen and there are large fines for incorrect use.

All in all I think this is a good idea.

I've never traveled by train in the US except subway, so scalping train tickets never occurred to me as being a problem. That's an interesting solution.

I just give my colleague my passport when she asks for it. I trust her.

Usually you do not need your actual passport, the ticket office I use in Shanghai is happy for me just to quote my passport number. If I was so inclined I could get two tickets as my residence permit can be used for the same purpose.

I've never tried that, but I don't travel alone in China at the moment because I'm always there on business with my colleagues from China.
