Q: How many Chinese people that you know speak and know the truth?

Latest chapter of Chinasmack....not the story (sinkhole in GZ) but the response from a Chinese netizen:

 

http://www.chinasmack.com/2013/pictures/ground-collapses-near-guangzhou-metro-construction-site.html

 

I mean like...WOW...do they only have balls of steel online or do they vent in person (privately) too?

 

 

 

Admin update: Hey folks. In order to hopefully avoid the whole "being shut down for posting sensitive material" thing, I've removed the comment from Chinasmack  that Dude is talking about. If your interested in reading the comment and discussing it below, please follow the above link and then search the translated comments on that page for the phrase "I used to believe that Chairman". TIC, sorry.

From what I understand, these sentiments are increasing on the internet at a rate that the censors can't keep up with. It is quite heartening to hear.

 

Probably the reason for the new laws that require people to use their real names instead of handles.

That dude is in for some heavy duty re-education if he's caught.

This guy is either very brave, very stupid, or a very good online actor.

I'm sorry, but I've read that over a dozen times and I find it hard to believe it was posted by a Chinese person, I hope I'm wrong but I smell a rat there.

 

The lines

Later I discovered that the U.S. Army’s intention wasn’t to invade China, but to strike at the aggressor Kim Il-sung.

and

I used to believe the USA’s presidential election was a game of the rich.
Later I discovered that the son of a poor African immigrant could also through hard work become the President of the United States.

 

Are just a little too glib for me to take without becoming suspicious, especially as it was long ago revealed that the McArthurists in Korea were actually pushing for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on China, and that Obama (and his campaign) were one of the richest 'sets' in Washington politics.

 

If I'm wrong, fine, I'll apologise, but to me this sounds like a US version of a wumao.

 

.

 

.

 

Edit: Perhaps western wumao was a bit too strong but I suspect the poster is a 'westerner' and probably US and not Chinese, again I hope I'm wrong but....

Of my ~200 students, there are ~10 who understand and agree with everything. About 20 more who recognize the truth of some of them (more that understand DPRK is awful and America is a pretty damn nice place to live), albeit unwillingly in front of me. This is in a top 20 university, Master's degree students in engineering. There could be more who agree but haven't/can't express it to me in English, and there could possibly be some who falsely expressed this belief in a foolhardy attempt to score points with me. Don't discount either, there was one Chinese who constantly spoke in class (to the extreme annoyance of everyone) about how great ROK and how awful PRC is.

I thought it was Mao who fought the Japanese and Shek planned to fight the victor with the idea they'd be worn down, not so? I do know some Chinese who complain in public. One was a friend of mine who was determined to lead a revolution of some kind. I think he's given up on that, but I've told him he should leave China.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
