I am just waiting for the village idiot to appear and lay claim to his expert knowledge of China.

He is in denial. How could any laowai possibly be in his beloved country when he is unable to be? He will probably die of shock if he ever make it here. I've seen ordinary citizens driving cars...... and big cars at that {:soso_e114:} (I use the word "driving" losely).

You are one of the few who I can believe has been to China. You don't hate China.
But why would anyone believe someone would move to a country they hate so much?
Most of the idiots in this forum who claim they live in China do nothing but complain, denigrate,
and condemn China.
Who in their right mind would decide to move to a country they hate so much?
And yet they expect you to believe them.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You said you were in China for 32 or 35 years.

Why did you move back to US (taking with your Chinese wife with you) if you hate so much?
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.

I choose to live in China because I can. My wife has no particular desire to move to the UK although she would if I asked her to. There are things I don't like in China (at the moment GZ mossies seem to have transferred their allegiance to me) but I accept the bad with the good..... as I would if we lived in the UK or anywhere else. Having said that, when it comes to retirement the UK probably wins, that descsion has yet to be made...... and depends on how much the UK government will have shifted the goalposts by then.

My favourite recent Robert quotation:

Actually 7, and most were business.  The others to pay for his wife and ship her back to the states.
