Free Movement of People?

Some folks just do not have a sense of irony.

Free movement of people?  Must be why they are talking about putting up thousands of miles of triple fences.  Westerners continue to offer words.  But when it comes to sharing wealth, they put up walls.

China on the other hand shows the world how to share.

It wasn't until the 70s that they began their march toward democracy and economic prospering.


Yeah, but that was still earlier than the PRC. Plus it wouldn't have had to deal with the damage the Cultural Revolution caused.

They shouldn't be brainwashed into thinking they shouldn't.

That is a cultural difference. Westerners are individualism, people are teached to work for their own personal benefit, but the acceptable good behavior in Chinese teaching is doing for the collective benefit.  You should read some comparative sociology, chapter one will do.

mao zedong had never been abroad, so he knew how to defeat the enemies...


His actions also led to the deaths of millions through starvation and persecution.
Mao's better travelled successors didn't have such disastrous effects on Chinese society.

Ahh, so that's what the thousands of corrupt officials are doing. It's for the "collective" benefit!!

It is certainly easier for the Chinese to "make it" in the U.S., Europe and Austrialia, since the locals are so much lazier and don't want to study.


What a load of nonsense! Australia has the second highest working hours of all nations behind South Korea. My father worked a good twelve hours a day... not sitting around playing mazhong, or playing on the net or snoozing under a tree like you see so many workersrs doing in China. Efficiency is also far greater in western nations. I am married to a Chinese woman. I work and study 15 hours a day. My wife does about one hour of work a day, and watches Korean soap operas the rest of the time, refusing to work.

If Chinese work so hard, why has the country been in such a mess for so long? And don't blame the west - Mao closed china to the west for 30 years and people were as lazy and unproductive as ever. It's only now that China is beginning to wake up to the fact that old work habits will produce the same results we have seen in China for a long time. Just look how Hong kong, macau and taiwan prospered under western influence, while th mainalnd went backwards when it closed its borders. Now that it has opened up again, things are improving.
