Since you have never been to CHina, because if you had been to China you would know the value of the RMB!!
So basically what i want to say is that i have a job for you in CHina.  It will go through a company so if you want to come here for 6 months and teach English then all i am saying is that i will find you a place and you will not know where i live and i will not know where you live.
THen you can get a window into the east and realise....on this earth....NOWHERE IS PERFECT!!!

Cant be bothered reading anything more you write...i have more creative things to do with my time.  LIke fingerpainting and sewing on buttons

vampire! nice to meet you here


I welcome all who wish to write and read this thread but urge everyone to be civil.

Remember that I won’t be easily outwitted and will not go easy on those who are rude, so don’t give me the chance to embarrass you.


I suppose you live in mid-east and you are a muslim, nearly an Islamic extremist.
So you are naturally having anti-west sentiment.
Right?


Answer: Wrong.  I am not in the Middle-East.  I am a Chinese and I am not an extremist but far from it.

I guess “extremist” can go both ways, especially, when one who sees others as “extremists” tends to react disproportionately.  I hope to show you that the West is not exempt from such “extreme” behaviour.  So, let’s be wary and stay vigilant.

This thread is “Window to the West” and is intended to be an eye-opener to the Chinese readers about certain things in the West, occurrence, attitude and problem.

I am not anti-America or anti-West per se as you think and have narrowedly viewed me.  I will back up my views, if any, with reasons to the best of my ability.  In any case, I hope to merely post more stories and reports from the western media.  Yes, it will be mainly from the western media – mainstream newspapers which uphold (as they are known for) ethical news reporting as opposed to small-time trashy gossipy news.

Like I said, “broaden your scope of view” and you’ll discover the gem.  Be broad-minded,

once again. :)

By the way, whampoa, what do you have to say about the multitudes of Americans and other Westerners who adopt babies from foreign countries (including China, an increasingly popular place to adopt from)? How about those who take in foster children? Those who host foreign exchange students? Are they all selfish, too?



Well, sockmonkey, the next time you want to ask for my views, don’t call me, “really and utterly completely insane”.

The un-knowing may really believe that this young American girl has gone stupidly CRAZY.

I know my views are always highly regarded but you’ve got to wait your turn.

There are more pressing things to deal with and yours, unfortunately, lies quite low in my priority list. So, wait.

But, yes, I do have something for you too.

hidenseek,

With every new post of yours, I am feeling disillusioned.

At least I need ask no more that you are a FOREIGNER (likely a WESTERNER and probably an AMERICAN) and I had given a wrong welcome “gan bei” in my first response.

But that’s not a problem as we all make mistakes occasionally on this faceless Forum as I might have done so, even defending the wrong people before.  The SKILL OF DECEPTION could be said to be innate in some people, whatever and however they want to define and clothe it.

No, I am not talking about you and you haven’t reached that level of deceit and twist.

My point is that my knowledge of the value of the RMB is inconsequential.  My point is that my knowledge of the East should be ASSUMED as sufficiently profound and deep enough to start this West thread.

My point of disillusionment (with you, as with all other westerners and white people my particular targets) is not that you have dismissed all that I have said but you have not asked WHY it was being said.

The first was said by a Chinese ….
Hello, xxxxxxx (my old handle)

How simple and childish i was in my 20s! i even believed what i wrote in that essay.

Look at this tortured world, please. When the world is not well balanced, say there is a super power grabbing everything to its hands and pockets, the whole world would be restless and there will be no way for different cultures to co-exist harmoniously.

There are many cultures fading and dying these days. This is like a fish pond, if the algae grows too much, other living beings would perish and even fishes would die in its abuse of power.


and the second was said by a Westerner who gave his frank opinion:-

A business client, a westerner (Europe), once said this to me.  He praised the win-win way of Chinese doing business.  It is so unlike the western’s way of “wanting everything to themselves.



Yes a common ground has been reached between East and West, but not culturally.

Are you not curious WHY what has been said was said?

Your single-mindedness at DIMISSING me as opposed to a QESTING mind is highly suspicious and disappointing.

If I once offended you, I ask for your forgiveness.
I think you are a man like debate drastically and your willing to win is very strong.
Those make you seem too serious and lack of humorous.
My advice: if you have a little sense of humor, you, your points of view, will be easier to be accepted by others.
One thing that's truly hard to eradicate is the idea.
