I disagree with you. I reckon I know the guy (a HongKey) and I have known for some time that he is out-of-step with the central government's position of greater openness and historical honesty. For instance, CCTV-9 is broadcast for everyone to see and right there in English, you can find very well-done segments and series on Chinese history. If you enjoy listening to Chinese, you can see that CCTV-6 produces some very good historical segments as well. Additionally. a good set of my books have come from the big bookstore right there in GZ! You can find the English version of Three Kingdom's also at the little bookstore across from the Irish pub right there in GZ. Further, how can anyone avoid the cultural significance of all their folk stories? Heck, the emphasis once made on Kung Fu-type movies, alone were all about intrigues and plots and subterfuge. Moreover, even the childhood stories are filled with moral teachings that prepare one to meet such normal nasty human behavior.|
That's not to say that you, I and others haven't had a open-hand at all times, considering the state of affairs in transition, this should be expected and we should be patient.
I guess I could try to make an observation about Chinese culture as I have discovered it so far. ... next post, maybe
However, that will require some considerable reflection and I simply don't have the time right now to spend on it.
Suffice it for now to say that the Chinese spirit is long-suffering and long-enduring, survival has created several readily recognizable strengths, the center of which is a stark self-analysis of reality mixed with some sense of the possibility that by achieving some sort of balance and harmony, they continue on, all together -- the Chinese WILL endure!
