I am a Chinese. I’ve always been making dreams from time to time. Those dreams made by each average Chinese like me are certainly Chinese dreams. Dreams vary from person to person, and also from time to time. But in a certain era, people share the similar dreams.  Here I’d like to share my Chinese dreams with you.


When I was a child in 1970s, poverty kept hovering over my family, just as it did with other average families in the countryside. The misfit second-hand clothes, rain-leaking roof of old adobe house became part of my memory. However, the worse impression is that I was feeling hungry all the time. Sometimes hunger bit me so severely that I regarded dried sweet potato slices as delicious snack, the sharp crack of chewing which are still echoing in my dream. At that time, my dream was getting enough to fill my cooing empty belly.



In the early years of 1980s, as the reform and opening-up policy was implemented, the children dream came true. And then, another dream became clearer and clearer in my mind. I must try my best to escape out of my impoverished and backward hometown. I worked harder at my study than most of my classmates, and, after luckily succeeding in the national college entrance examination, my dream became reality again: after graduation, I became a citizen working in a city. As the first college graduate out of a remote village, my success set an example for my folks. They came to realize that schooling is a good way to change one’s fate. In the following years, there were less drop-outs and more college graduates in my village, of which I am proud even today.


Afterwards, I got accustomed to the life of citizens and I began to dream the same things as other peers: a comfortable home, my own car and a spacious apartment. Based on my toil, more than ten years passed, all of these dreams have been fulfilled. Of course, new dreams will occur to me again and again as time rolls on. Whatever, I believe most of my dreams will come true sooner or later only if my motherland keep advancing with current pace.


My Chinese dreams are also ones of other Chinese people. If every individual’s dreams come true, the dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will sure to come true. "The Chinese dream, after all, is the dream of the people,” as the newly-elected Chairman Xi Jinping said.

Dreams are part of life. No dream, no life, and vice versa.

As i have said time and time again... I hope that China prospers so the billions of Chinese can lead better lives sometime in the future. That said, i absulutely HATE the Chinese anti-Japanese ultra-nationalism which is fueled by constant propaganda and the fact that they don't seem to give a f... about the environment etc etc. Also, i see that the income gap between the rich and the poor in China is getting higher and higher and that the Chinese communist party is largely made from rich people.

It's a far cry from the west where our leaders walk to work and live in low income housing.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Sure, the west is full of oligarchies posing as democracies. I was saying this because it seems to me that many people around these parts (around the forum ) are under the false impression that the CPC is made from the most honest trustworthy people who're looking out for the interests of the Chinese people... when the reality seems to be that it's an oligarchy posing as a communist party. We'll have to wait and see to be sure though - but until now i haven't seen anything that can convince me that they aren't.

Since defeating the western imperialists 63 years ago the CPC has lifted more people out of poverty
than most nations have people. The same can't be said of western nations. Not even close.
The middle and lower classes in the west are falling behind, not being lifted as in China.
You're not really looking for reasons to believe the CPC is an honorable government, you're just
looking to smear the CPC as most others who frequent this forum are. You aren't fooling anyone.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
