The west has invaded the east politically, economically, and even intellectually. In the east, japan, korea, singapore, and tw have all fallen into the trap of western corporate economies and become part of the food chain that the western powers feed on. In terms of politics, the Americans have also influenced the region for the interest of the American people. Americans do not view China as a nation enriched with history and culture as much as they do as a "potential market." And the very same goes with the Europeans. |
All these Euro-American environmental conservationists are blaming China for pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, while failing to acknowledge the fact that the real demand of such environmentally harmful productions comes from themselves.
While the entire west promotes human rights, their greedy materialistic demands have also hindered the basic human right developments of peoples all over the world: Congo, Sudan, East Timor, Nicaragua, Twan, China, just to name a few. Such a double standard serves the west as a leverage over the east; it also creates an illusion of "foreign is better." That explains why a lot of Chinese, 50 million of whom, have migrated overseas. The wide-spread notion of "foreign is better," (foreign in this case refers to western Europe, US, and Japan), has also allured China's brightest brains to labor for foreign companies. In a knowledge economy, exploitation is no longer limited to materials and physical resources, but to a large extent, also brain power.
While China is a potential victim of western double-speaking, its rulers should never impose the same tactics over its own people. And the only way to prevent and minimize state-imposed coercion and suppression is to have freedom of speech. Many view this as a western idea not suitable for Chinese, but didn't the very basic ideology China was founded on, namely communism, originate in the west as well? Lately China's communism has evolved and gradually blended in with the country's rising nationalism. But Chinese naitonalism is not manifested by seeking justice and compensation from the foreign aggressors like Japan, but seeking ways to threaten the lives of its peaceful neighbors across the straight. Isn't that double-speaking itself?
