You want to make rules for China and different rules for everyone else?
(What kind of game is that ...



How did you arrive at this incomprehensible conclusion???
It is the Chinese ruling clique that always sets different rules for itself.

They view the rest of humanity as below them. To subhumans you can dictate, and dictating is what the Chinese ruling clique has always done. They need to accept that they are not primus inter pares. St best they are equals. TO the West, they have been that for a long time but the Chinese want to be more than equal.

Your negative world views have the same merits of my positive one.
Point is....
We don't know.



There is a big difference between harbouring Utopian beliefs and being realist.

Wrong. We DO know

Enforced sharing does not breed love. You, UYA, just have to accept that today ...

Who is "we"?
If you "know" how do you know?

Never before has the world existed without poverty.
(maybe cave man days)
So explain

we have had this discussion several times.

It is a little arrogant to think you can create a " ...

Well then....
How do we make "better people"?
Your way?
My way?

I'm willing to engage and be confident (not arrogant) in my views.

We were talking about "how China has done the same things as the US did" (south china seas).
Then you said, "China ought to try harder and learn from the world's best, not from just another "super power";

So those rules China has to follow, would be different from the rules the US had to follow.
What the US does is not a crime, but in China's case it is?

Lets play a fair game here

Told you many times, I'm an "idealist".
There would be no vision without some ideal thought.
You, I would put somewhere between a "pessimist and a realist".

I am a single member of a vast and global collective called "we"...

In the past I have repeatedly reminded you of the fiasco of collectivist economies. You swept everything just under the carpet and told me not to mention historic truths. BUgt if YOU won't learn from history, YOU will be bound to repeat historic mistakes.

Poverty is an intellectual product. It exists in YOUR MIND. As long as feverish minds toss around this word there will be poor, and the poor will regard themselves as "victims".

That is not a good way to overcome "poverty".
