Q: Posting articles that show what's really going on in China?

Some posters have problems with a certain poster posting stories about China's darkside, what gives? 

No problems posting negative stuff about our own countries on a China board but can't talk about China unless it's rosy?

I'm curious what those boobs will think of punishing people for simply helping migrants who were put out in the cold

i always find that it is a sign of maturity, whether in a person or country, that they are able to admit faults or problems, discuss them openly and try to find a solution.

 

who among us is perfect?

if i make a mistake i try to own it, especially when it is a mistake between friends.

 

I like the 'Sixth Tone' online publication because even though it does not have a forum or comments section, it raises searching questions about Chinese society.

one that i found very troubling recently was:

http://www.sixthtone.com/news/1001414/whats-behind-chinas-spate-of-murdered-teachers%3F

 

This is by no means a new phenomenon, but in China where 'teachers are respected' was a common cliche i heard trotted out, it says more about a society that has become increasingly dysfunctional and is manifesting itself in younger and younger people.

You will always get the 'if you don't like it you know where to go' crowd. Whether they want to admit it or not, this place is a fucking nightmare on an epic scale.

For myself, I'm only here until I can get the missus and kids back home. Other than that, I fucking detest this place with every fibre of my being. I try to see the good in certain things, for example, high speed rail. Love it. But at the back of my mind is the million articles I've seen on shoddy construction, backhanders on safety checks, etc.

Anyone that cannot admit that this dump is nothing short of a hellhole is either deluded, mental, brainwashed or scared of being found out and deported.

Darkness continues as long as mankind continues to sweep their filthy deeds under the carpet.  Of them all, guess who are the masters in this filthy business?  Hint, the land of face. And the results?  A mega thugs den, to say the least.  The solution?  Let there be light.  I am not the first one who says this ............  lol

No Engles - the problem is quite simple.

 

Said posting of the bad shit is then made out to be the average, day to day mentality or standard... that it's what every Chinese person would think or do or say... 

 

That's what's fucked up about it!

 

Mike above is wrong. It's not a complete hellhole. Sure, I want to get out of here. There are bits that seriously suck, and things that are getting worse. However, I can still walk across the street and buy my food. I can live in an apartment with aircon, in a relatively peaceful and quiet neighbourhood. I can go for walks through the hills and trees. I can go shopping without really worrying about getting mugged, or ripped off... or even killed (even if people look at me strangely and make stupid noises and faces... I'm at least pretty damn sure that if I reply in kind, I'm not going to end up getting shot for it!)

 

I see the exact same mentality on here for Muslims as for Chinese.... "sure, there may be a few good apples to spoil the illusion that they're all bad... but hey. Maybe those are the 'enlightened ones'".

 

And that mentality is exactly the same mentality that is expressed by those who you are bitching on about... both here in China  who are ultra nationalist, ignorant, racist, indoctrinated, etc etc... and the Muslims who turn to terrorism... a clear disdain, intolerance, contempt, and even hatred for 'the other'.

 

Which is precisely the attitude that you guys have adopted (and posted on many many times). Disdain, intolerance, contempt, and hatred of Chinese and Muslims.

 

I don't see that much of a difference between you, and the worst of the ones you bitch about...

Shining facts, truth , observations are not hate. 

Let me simplify the question. Are most mainlanders uncivilized in their behavior?

 

My observations and based on the observations of others who I've talked to in person, the answer is yes. It's not due to genetics. It's due to govt oppression, 0 access to real education and restricted access to the outside world. And China has develop China specific problems as a result. What's hateful about that?
