If there's anything I've learned in college that can be called a revelation, it is the hype that envelopes the mankind and the manipulation that the alleged elite cast on the commoners. I've come to reckon this as a universal truth, a painful realization that man prefers lies to truth, that 'truth' is invented only for the sake of better lying, and that truth is there's no truth.
the western world lies to cover the fatal flaws in their ideology and political system; the chinese lie to hide their hopeless feelings of inferiority and diffidence.
I'm not trying to be objective; the claim of being objective bites itself.
I'm only stating my case of which I'm certain, in the name of an ordinary Chinese who happens to have received higher education.
I do not believe anything the western world preaches, from democracy to human rights.
the reasons are simple and the evidence are direct.
first the western world is the epitome of double-standard. no sane men would ever subscribe to this type of insolence.
they annihilated the native american culture, slaughtered the native american people to a degree of almost non-existence, and yet they incessantly malign the chinese government for destroying the tibetan people and their unique culture despite the fact that the tibetan people and their lifestyle have always been well preserved. I have been to Qinghai, a place in north west of China where tibetans concentrate, and literally lived with one tibetan family for almost 2 years in a tibetan village. each village has a temple where monks reside for people to worship and pray; men support the family by producing traditional paintings of buddhas and selling them for money while women do the housework; the fifth day of each month in tibetan calendar they all go into the mountains to venerate the buddha by presenting him ambrosia; more importantly I sensed no bitter feelings of any kind regarding my identity as a Han chinese. in fact I felt fully welcomed. considering I might not be used to having bread as the staple food everyday, they even bought a bag of rice and ensured I could at least have rice once a week. and here's another interesting fact that is bound to be manipulated by ill-intent people --- in their home where I slept, on the wall hung the pictures of both Dalai Lama and Banchan XI (2 religious figures the tibetans worship except that one has fled the country whereas the other stays)
the western world dress themselves as the victims of terrorism, they wail the loss of their loved ones, and they vow to bring justice to their fellowmen by power of killing that they claim their god bestow on them. out of great compassion and the similar experience of having lost loved ones in an imposed war several decades ago, the chinese offered condolence as well as willingness to fight with the western world, taking this as a noble cause of the entire human race against evil force. how naive of the chinese! when will they ever learn? when the terrorists drove a car onto the sidewalk of a street in Beijing, killing several pedestrians, and when they ravaged a county in Xinjiang, leaving dozens of death both uygurs and Han chinese, the US government insinuated that the killing was somehow justified because the uygurs were responding to oppression; when the mob smashed the stores and attacked innocent people, claming dozens of lives, tibetans and han Chinese, in Lhasa, the western media edited the event to project a China in a way they wanted their people to know so that the chinese government could continue to be the villian, the mob the freedom fighter, and the western world the savior, the sole incarnation of justice --- all of this was in perfectly tacit agreement with the agenda of their governments; when the mob slaughtered 29 people in a railway station in Kunming, the western world once again taught the chinese a lesson --- the west only identify those who kill their men as terrorists; those who kill the chinese are not terrorists, in some way, they could even be applauded as heroes. and that is why they put a quotation mark on the word terrorists in news report. and by this logic, never have they treated the chinese as friends, and if this is not over-inference, never will they.
people in the green house keep throwing stones. what a scene!
second the western world cares only whether their interests are being served or not.
if the government of a nation is against the interests of the western world, whether or not it is elected by the people, it should be subverted by all means necessary, like US conspired with Chile military leader in 1973 to overturn the people-elected government led by Salvador Allende, the reason was blatant --- that goverment believed in socialism, and the americans don't want those kinda thing in their backyard. one cuba is humiliating enough for the US, I suppose. similar shows have been repeated in Iran 1953, Guatemala 1954, Congo 1960, republic of dominica 1961, brazil 1964, etc. how many times have they plotted against China, only their god knows.
the US history is basically one of rapid expansion in territory, mass destruction of native culture, and chronic compromise of ethnical interests. the US itself does not believe in sudden change --- the alleged democracy which it so shamelessly brags about is nothing but a gradual compromise of the interests of different social forces when the cost of conflict would have been higher, and that is in nature no different from the national politics in China--- and that's why it'd rather kill and jail the people with communism belief than let sudden change befall itself. yet it revels in cajoling other nations into sudden change that is always accompanied by violence and killing. just consider the countries that are ravaged by the west interference, either directly through war or indirectly through sponsored riots, and it is never very difficult for one to come up with the only logical explanation --- the western world has a psychological defect that renders them impossible to tolerate or try to co-exist with anyone who gets in their way. we have seen Iraq torn apart, Egypt in chaos, so is Lybia and Thailand, and now Ukraine is right on its way to destruction. the US and Europe has flagrantly sided with one party of the Ukraine political forces lest the turmoil come to a halt. who can blame them? they believe humans are born selfish so everything they do can be auto-justified. all they need to ensure is morally they look like god, economically they are boss, socially they appear paragon, and politically they are compressing the countries they aim to obliterate in form or in soul.
third the western world so far has been stunningly successful in manipulating the mind of the general public. once you are convinced they are manipulating, everything they preach loses value, however pleasant those things sound to your ear, all castles in the air.
the people are as easy to manipulate as they are fond of the obvious. the politicians ally themselves with the upper class of the society --- mostly huge financial groups --- making their interests identical. then they control mass media and buy off the middle class to speak for them, creating an illusion of the legitimacy of their rule. the lower class, put at the receiving end of this one-way communication, barely has a say. even if they do, their voice can be easily overwhelmed, censored or twisted by the cacophony of the mass media who claim to speak for the people (based on reliable evidence, the integrity of the west media won't let you down. they have a perfect timing for when to bark for whom or against whom and when to stop). no significant change will ever take place unless the social tension has been pushed to a point where an immediate redistribution of wealth is required before the ruling class loses its power. so it's simply money for power, and at a certain point it is not an undesirable mode of social development because it advances a society in a highest possible pace at a lowest possible cost.
the fact that the westerners have vote builds up such a powerful illusion that would actually make some people believe
Utopia is within mortal reach. but this is just another hype. would the US citizen be able to elect some one else other than the two demagogues nominated by two seemingly conflicting parties that share essentially the same value? even if yes, have you ever seen anyone who is from neither of the parties succeeded in being elected as the president of the US? would other small parties in the US ever get to be empowered? if you are not ignorant, stupid, or unreasonable, you will know the answer. it is just a bigger hype that taps into human psychology for the most obvious. the western societies are 'dmocratic'only because their ruling classes are the best dictators. the ruling class self duplicates, each generation consolidates their control of the wealth through allies with politicians, instill their value system to the public through the tool of mass media and education. that is the secret of the success of their 'perfect' system, the new version of how the elite kidnap the masses with acute self-regualtion so that the possibility of sudden social change can be minimized. they seem to think they have found the way that is perpetually workable. but if there's any truth left in this world, that is nothing lasts forever.
all the three above reasons come down to two conclusions for me: the western world is one of ultimate hypocrisy, and they seem to be okay, even proud of it; we should hope for the best, but prepare for the worst because of their insolence and greed.
