    These youth are the biggest possible reason the world would go to war in a few decades.
    lol, do you have family in China and have you ever stayed in China for a long time, that you can make a statement like this?

      I have been to China many times. Sorry if that disappoints you. Bu yao yi wei wai guo ren si xia zi.

      The level of propaganda in China is breathtaking, insiduous and a symptom of an astounding inferiority complex.

      Which you also display, Mr Huang.

        puressence,

        我沒有以為你是瞎子, but can you honestly say that the chinese propaganda system is necessarily greater than chinese propaganda of the 60s or even the 80s? and remember, even then, the very core of the CCP was shaken by a particular event- 天安門 should strike a few bells, no?

        just the fact that such an event happened should tip you off that the propaganda machine is not exactly that great. especially, as we have seen in the past five years, increasing levels of anti-state/anti-CCP violence.
        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

          It's become sort of protocol on here to avoid using non-English words and phrases without providing a translation. Can you help me out on this one? Thanks :)
          Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

            sorry about that. won't happen again. It says, "Don't think that foreigners are blind."

              tophatter,

              my apologies about that, i will add the translations in from now on.

              my first sentence was a reply to puressence, "i certainly don't think you are blind...", with the second use of mandarin being the event of tiananmen.

                          m21,

                          good guesses! foreigners = "wai guo ren", "outside country people", literally. take away the "guo" and you have the same characters as the more famous japanese "gaijin", which is just a shorter way of saying the same thing.

                          hmm. i donno if i oughta be teaching ya any more chinese, next thing i know you'll be picking up chinese women left and right

                              Actually, I do find that a lot of people not well versed in the Chinese culture have a hard time of knowing what's going on.

                              Interesting, you seem to make comments about me just based on
                              "lol, do you have family in China and have you ever stayed in China for a long time, that you can make a statement like this?"
                              So, since you sound like you are into psychology. Can you explain to me how I display this "symptom of an astouding inferiority complex"?

                              But yeah, since you've been to China many times, you mind explaining which part bothers you? Obviously, I disagree with your view, but feel free to prove it.
