IN MANY COUNTRIES IN THEIR MONEY PRINTED,

THEY ENGRAVE THEM WITH THEIR NATIONAL HEROES

As I understand it the answer to that question is very simple. The Chinese people instantly recognize Mao and his likeness and it was believed using his image would help keep down counter-fitting.

Well, that's the trick. Once the heroes did more than speak out against their government and did a  ...

That would possibly make you a Mao fan as that was his personal message in 'constant revolution'.

Good reply, and I ask from a rational and just as a passing interest. Who do you think has evolved this ideal best. For example, is it European, Asian, Russian or American and I am not sure if there is even a right answer there so there is no entrapment in the reply. I am just curious as to whether you believe that constant revolution exists in our world, or are we all stagnating (stagnated) by our media into mental apathy?

I don't believe we are stagnated by our media, I believe it is human nature and that is why it is very hard to stay to the top.

Constant revolution means always questioning the things you have done before, learning from your mistakes and moving forward while not doing any triumphalism and thinking you'll be the best for a million years.

In my views constant revolution does not need to be socialist, communist, capitalist or whatever, it can come from a democratic government.

Revolution comes from society, constant revolution has to come from society. But it's "easy" to revolt when you live a crappy life and, anyway, your only two choices are dying while trying to get a better life or dying while leading a crappy life. It is hard to revolt when you live in a comfortable situation with a nice apartment, a lot of freedom, etc... But this general comfort, this rich society, doesn't mean you shuld not always look to better yourself.

However, in France, we have a saying that goes "better is the enemy of good", meaning sometimes by trying to get a better situation you screw up a good situation. And that is why constant revolution is not easy.
The other reason is because constant revolution needs a government to go back on its own decisions and say they are not good anymore. They were the best decisions when they were taken but, years later they're just not good anymore. And that is very hard for human nature to accept.

To answer your question, I believe everybody is constantly revolting. Take China for example, 5000 years of history, you don't get to that much history by not doing a revolution once in a while. France, England are the same. The USA are now in the middle of their first big revolution where they'll have to change their ways. I am not sure if I make my point clear. I mean everybody is always in constant revolution, they just do not realize it and that's why they need other people to lead them.

But ultimately I believe we do not change our human nature and core values. It is interesting to look at governments over the world and over the course of History. France has always been ruled by a king and still is ruled by a king. The difference is now we elect our king and call it "President". Russia always had a Czar and things are not changing, just words.. And China always had an emperor, well, current emperor's name is CCP.

Changing these core values is what takes the longest time.

Another attack for no reason! What is wrong with the people in this forum?

You are totally incorrect. The picture of Mao was used on the notes because it was instantly recognizable to all people who lived in China. Your statement is just something pulled from your own beliefs and bias and your last idea should point to my lack of attention with my spelling. Counter-fitting should read counterfeiting, and back to school for you for missing it and your 'poor understanding'. If you wish to make a comment then it would be nice if you could make a polite, correct and factual one.
