Oh, I don't mean to say people should not argue, it is just that the threads often devolve into slanging matches about people's personalities and nationalities. I didn't mean to say anyone is actually wrong, just that discussion is different from insult and I could see the thread heading into the territory of the latter.
Personally I thought it all started off rather well.

Agreed!  But, I think the Chinese have been very good at subjug.ating their own kind for thousands of years.  But, when it came to conquering those abroad they failed.  But, why try to conquer others when you can conquer your own?

Projeka,

The problem China faced in conquests abroad is that people don't like foreign domination. What made Europeans such powerful colonizers wasn't ruthlessness or military effectiveness, but their libertine attitude towards technological development. China carefully hid its most precious industrial secrets while the West would simply spread them around. This ensured that people worldwide came to associate the West with science and progress and colonialists could rely on a fifth column of pro-Western Moderns in colonized societies who viewed colonization as their ticket to the modern world.

China never could offer anything similar, leading to endless, bloody wars to maintain the territory it held.

You will realize that there are certain people to whom no quarter will be given.

If the only thing a new super power China would ask me to do is to throw away my fork and spoon and get used to chop sticks I might give in. But all the rest of it I will resist. Only over my dead  ...





Don't be afraid. There's no need to sacrifice your body. I'm sure that China doesn't want it, neither alive nor dead.
