Ted180: You may be right. So sad. I'm 74 and in bad health. I'll not live to see what happens to China and humanity. I'm just an old idealist. Very liberal an ...
You do not seem to be afraid of the end of a man's journey on Earth... You will no doubt be missed, Ted. I feel you are energetic. And idealistic. Both are in short supply these days. Stay tuned!

Ted180 : My posts reflect my historical expectations that China will westernize and modernize much like Japan did in a gradual non-revolutionary way. That the  ... Those are noble wishes, Ted, but they are not going to materialise. I am not sure Taiwan should be put under Chinese rule. It is yet another territory stolen and looted by Chinese invaders. But yes, if they want to, there should be no outside opposition. But the C.P.C. are not going to democratise. It is not i ... ...

Pastor237. Who is he really? Does he work for China Daily? Is he a Californian? He is indeed in another world - and it is not really a Marxist world. I had a dear friend who (tried to be) a Marxist. Quite learned, but an alcoholic.Very small, unattractive to women. Bursting with rage at men who could get laid anytime they wanted. Big, blond American men represented these rivals he  hated and wished to destroy. Really got some Marxist ideology wrong. But I loved him (like a brother). He ... ...

I wish we could inject more value in these threads but with posters who argue from a point of imagined strength and bolstered by nothing more solid than a tattered red Mao Bible you can not hold a rational discussion. To begin with, we never know who our opposite numbers are: are they editors masquerading as "posters"? Or are they ... ...

I've noticed some problems with the site lately. Thanks.

I admire you for defending your cultural values from unfair or sweeping condemnation. I do the same myself. So, I can understand you. Warm regards, my friend! I am not able to post a message on your board. The net is acting very weird... so I am trying to send you the PM. Thanks for your message. ... ...

Ted180 : Let me try to explain. I think the only thing that guarantees the survival of freedom is free speech. Now there must be some limitations on it (nation ... I agree with you about freedom of speech, but I can't agree that in the workplace or public schools whether primary or secondary, there should not be standards of behavior.  We live in a civilized society and when we are talking about structural institutions, there has to be limits.  And what I mean by structur ... ...

Always.  I don't consider debating points 'fighting'.  You'll know if I am fighting you...:) But no, I respect you deeply as well.  Would like you to respond on the thread so we can debate the issue.   I read an article where someone suggested having a 'heirarchy' of human rights f ... ...

CR was neither smart nor stupid, just political situations at that time might have compelled Chinese leaders to resort to such extreme measures that they thought could save the country from foreign invasion. I'm neutral on that issue, but just my personal observations on events during that time, that I concluded it was a deception ... ...
