It is China's reaction to foreign criticism, that shows desperation. Like in this case in response to human rights issues bringing up topics that are irrelevant to human rights, and stating that USA fails in human rights because it has these flaws.

If Chinese want that, fine, but it's a mistake to interpret that what you then have is human rights.


Irrelevant to you but relevant to China because China sees human rights issues differently from your model. There is no mistake on interpretation. I have explained that in my previous post.

Correct analysis would be that of looking at USA and noticing their flaws with crime etc, and concluding that China does not need or want human rights. It wants peace and stability through police state that prevents such crime.


"Police state"? Not really. China has, in the past decades of reform, also evolve into a more humane state.

Since you brought up famine as a matter related to human rights, by many estimations (including Chinese) in the Great Chinese Famine of 1959-60, 30% of the human casualties were caused by natural disaster and 70% by bad government policies and management.


That's in the past. Why bring it in the discussion? I am not saying it should be ignored but that the fact China has reformed means this painful lesson has been learnt and should not be repeated again. That does not mean, also, that China has to blindly follow your model of "human rights".

But if China didn't have to bury these and more recent mistakes by censorship and human right violations,


You are sneaking up an accusation without first establishing which model of "human rights" we are talking about. Before saying there is human rights "violation", there is a need to establish the model first and then look into the backgound and content of the situation. This is also what many western media and certain western governments do when talking about “human rights". By assuming a self righteous position does not really make one righteous, more like a hypocrite.

Many developing countries are torn with civil-war and ethnic tensions, and if they look at China for a model, they will look on both sides of Taiwan strait. Almost 70 years on, and still unfinished business. Great model there.


The situation here is because of foreign interference, such as the "Taiwan Act" in the US which was self-enacted by US to allow US to meddle and mess up the situation between mainland China and Taiwan province. Of course, only a fool would believe that US is doing it because it cares for Taiwan. Pentagon needs Taiwan for the annual budget and to sell "customised" and obsolete weapons to.
