fear of China
I would not worry the internet bigots too much. First of all, they are only very small percentage of the entire population; secondly, it is quite normal in every country that always some ultra nationalists jump up and calling names whenever, whatever you talk about their country as long as the topic is not a good news. |
I have intriduced some English forums to my friends in China, include this CD forum. But non of them shows any interest on the political thing. Most Chinese are only concern about money and making money, political discussion is a kind of waste of time to them. So how much this interenet bigots representing entire China population? Close to nothing, I guess. Foreigners who live and work in China are treated friendly, is an irony sign that the internet bigots are not representing real China and Chinese.
Even in CD forum, we can see interenet bigots from both China and foreign sides, I wouldn't name any of them, but I would not mind to name two extremests -- China side-chineseyang; foreign side-seneca. Most of the time, we can simply ignore them, then they would not bother you too much.
I personally have no problem to forgive those bigots since they behave as bigots are base on the love and pride (although it is wrong way to show their love and pride) to their country - China (I bet they would not be too much like bigots in Chinese forums when anyone questions about the issues in China, because there are no foreigners there). I also have no problem to forgive the foreign bigots such as seneca, obviously he experienced tough life in China.
What these internet bigots have done here would not make a fear of China, instead, most people just laugh. Unfortunately, these bigots have never realized how sily they are and keep doing the stupid fights here.
I have talked to a Korean through PMs and emails (I am not sure if he is the one you mentioned), what I found is that he is an interenet bigot too, he just refused to learn and listen, all he argued was base on what he learnt from Korean books and legends, which stands nowhere on serious history research.
Mr Lau, the biggest issue it may bother you if you retire in China, is the uncertainty of law system. China still has long long way to go to build a reasonable law system to ensure average perons can enjoy life without too many hassels.
