The west loves to point the dirty finger at China on this.
People in the west are allowed to protest and voice opposition to anything.
In America, protests march into Washington DC all the time, under the right of "Freedom of Speech".


China typically sees the splinter in the eye of someone else but ignores the tree trunk lodged in its own eye. In other words: I don't think China has a business staring at the West's "dirty finger" so long as both China's hands are dripping with muck. The West still has nine clean fingers, enough to eat without contaminating its food whereas the Chinese eat with two dirty hands...

Only the insecure need to be told to be "proud" of themselves. Pride comes naturally and doesn't show at all: It is an inner condition, a satisfaction with life and does not care whether others think one has "achieved" something. Ostentatiously displayed "pride" is an aggression to others. It attacks others on their own feeling of self-worth. Why does China of all places need to do that? The biggest in the family of nations should need this the least of them all but fact is that China needs it the most.

That's unhealthy.

The Party is insecure because they have a long history of banditism and were recognised as the official rulers of China only a short while ago.


We in the West don't have such a past in our recent history. We set different standards for a government to be respected. However, we have bowed to the inevitable and accepted the rulers of the PRC as the current legitimate government.

There is no shame, as to what China has achieved and how it was made.
China should be proud of goals completed, even with the opposition from the western world.
Setting a new standard and political example, for the world to admire.
China has proven, communism can work.



Who brings up the theme of "shame"? Who? It is the CPC that constantly wags an accusatory finger at the world, in particular at the West even as it connives with some of the Western world's rulers and works with them to undermine the governments in other parts of the world (think of Afghanistan in the 1980s).
It's acts such as this that should put some shame on the Comrades' faces. The CPC is not a bunch of saints. Their foreign policy decisions are no nicer than those of the USA or Russia. These three empires are global hegemons constantly changing their tactics to get at each other's throat while they trample on the smaller nations beside them.

As for the Western "culture of protesting", I don't think that should be exported to anywhere in the world. Nor should democracy. And by the same token, Communism has never worked, so it should not be foisted upon other nations either. Maybe a communist democracy might - but that is a Utopian proposition. To protest, to be a citizen of a democracy, you need education and a moral bolster that gives you the sense of security even when you vote against your personal interests in a referendum. Not many people in the West are unselfish enough to do that. Nobody in China would as the Chinese are raised in the world's biggest nanny state. They never attain the intellectual ability that must be expected from true democratic voter-citizens. If you can protest about anything, you will, being a Chinese, start a mass demonstration just because the canteen food in your danwei is not as good as that in the canteen where the civil servants dine.

I was reading a book on google books a few weeks ago because I wanted to know why you educated Chine ...



The elitism of the Chinese puts the elitism anywhere else ten stations lower. You will never meet snobs like those in Chinese cities. There are Chinese former blue-collar workers who now drive a Geely, or maybe a VW, and when they see a street sweeper, they stop their car and spit on the ground. "We give you low lives work. .. Without us you would be STARVING!" they say.

And true to their inflated egoism, they migrate around China, pollute public places and always expect the government's armies of cleaners, nannies, teachers and bureaucrats to be at their service. Wherever this kind of modern Chinese appears the cityscape is dirty and ugly. Towns with a high number of migrants are cultural wastelands. Towns with no migrants on the other hand are clean and genteel.

So China is NOT strong enough because the food is dirty?

There is nothing China should be proud of?
So China could not handle any unrest, so the party needs to exert more control?

Not sure what you are advocating.
