    China-Tibet Threads

    All new members, please be advised that we will no longer tolerate unsubstantiated claims by either side on this issue. Frankly, I have had enough of

    1) I come from China
    2) The Chinese are right
    3) The Tibetans are right
    4) Life in China is much better now
    5) We have freedom, you just don't understand
    6) I am here to correct your misconceptions

    This horse has been beaten to a bloody pulp. Unless you have something new to add, I do not want to hear this anymore.

    Can you just collect all the currently running China-Tibet threads into one?

    Blade,

    I think what we'll do is start closing some of the threads (not all) that cover similar ground. I'm afraid that merging nearly a dozen threads into one will result in a single 100 page thread that crashes vBulletin

    That shouldn't be a problem, as WAB is Private Property and thus people here post as a courtesy and a privilege, not a right.

    Although, admittedly, there are folks here who need to be educated on the concept of "Private Property" and all that it entails.

    As we say here at work you can drag the dead horse to water but you can't make him cross the road.

    I hope this slows down...the Brigadier MUST be getting tired!

    Thanks for your patience...and adult supervision.

    But what happens when another Chinese feels like expressing how they are "a Chinese" and don't understand the criticism against the CCP?

    Westerners may not understand Han Chinese's attitude towards religion. Before Han dynasty, there is no religion in China. Most of Chinese worship their ancient, imaginative creatures like Loong(龙) or originators of their professions. Then Confucianist create an ideology: The highest level of deity is "Heaven". Every deities people worship were under guideness of "Heaven". So no matter what kinds of deities poeple worship, they should always obey the guideness of "Heaven". And the King is the "Son of Heaven", he is the agent of "Heaven" on the earth. The King is only one on the earth can communicate with the "Heaven", report and receive message from the "Heaven". So poeple on the earth should abey the King, otherwise they disobey the "Heaven", and will be punished by the "Heaven".
    This don't change after Buddhism, Christianity and Islam were brought in. So for two thousand of years, religions were always in the second place. Han Chinese are not that serious about religions like westerners. That's why Chinese never fought war like the Crusades. No matter it's right or not, Most of Han Chinese accept it.
