We're all going on about the the Chinese Middle Classes growing, but I personally don't see this as a sign of China developing, I just see this as a sign of China having further problems.

Why is this? Because Middle Class people simply don't GET IT! They don't get what life is actually all about. Yes, they are wealthier than the working classes, yes they are better educated, yes they have (supposedly) better jobs which is why they get paid more, but this doesn't mean they are smarter.

Middle Class people don't understand the real struggle of living. I appreciate that Middle Class people in CHina work very hard, everyone in CHina works hard, but that doesn't mean they are smarter than anyone else! They don't get it! It's all about being fake and showing status. It's all about sitting in coffee shops to show how modern you are like western society, it's all about getting the car to show how modern you are like western society. It's all about STATUS AND BEING COMPLETELY FAKE! These are NOT the morals of society to aspire to! These are THE PROBLEM! And this is what THE MIDDLE CLASSES all over the world are like.

There are middle class problems, and then there are REAL problems! Ask any working class!

Let me quote from the 'Not A Noble Way of Involving China' article again...

I think it is necessary to remind the Nobel Committee's experts studying the Chinese Constitution that the People's Republic of China is a socialist state under the people's democratic leadership, led by the working class and based on the alliance of workers and farmers.

What was that I heard? Workers and farmers! Not the middle classes, but the people working the land, the people behind the wheel driving the middle class people to work, the people building the skyscrapers that the middle class people sit in, the people cooking the food that the middle class people eat! These are the people who needs rights and freedoms and liberties and human rights!

The secret to China becoming powerful again is NOT to develop more FAKE and status driven middle class people who have no understanding about what life is actually all about, but to develop the REAL people of the country!

You're doing it all wrong China, you're a victim of uncontrollable corrupt capitalism, the system that you spent 50 years saying was so bad about America is the system that will ultimately cause your own problems in the future!

Middle classes leading the world in orders of scotch whiskey, luxury cars etc etc. I mean, what a load of garbage! All of the problems that China has, and all the Middle-class care about is pretending they are like middle class white people! It's so pathetic! Show me the real China! Show me the real people! Show me the real problems! Then we can have some ground to work on!

No. That is COMPLETELY wrong and COMPLETELY false! China becoming a peaceful and powerful country is COMPLETELY ACCEPTABLE by white people.

So, let me get this straight, you consider drinking western scotch whiskey and driving western cars a sign that you are becoming MORE DEVELOPED?

Is that what all middle class people think? Throwing all you values and morals away and focussing on white middle class fake status is a sign that China is rising?
Drinking in coffee shops, eating from bakeries, driving big American cars, having big fancy over-the-top weddings, this is TO SHOW THE WORLD that China is RISING and DEVELOPING?

Let me give you all a secret. All it's showing is how China still doesn't have a clue and that China still has a looooooooong way to go!

Insecurity and fakeness is all it is showing!

Give me the real China! Give me the real people!

I think you're not familiar with history.

Japan's economy was number 2 in 1980 and that's why the US need to stop the trend and punish Japan, just because Japanese is not whites.

Indigenous maternal death rate alarming
Melissa Jenkins
May 1, 2008
.Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are almost three times more likely to die while pregnant, during labour or up to six weeks after giving birth than non-indigenous women.

And the system for reporting maternal deaths in Australia needs an overhaul, with inconsistent data collection between the states and territories undermining the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare's (AIHW) efforts to provide accurate and timely statistics.

An AIHW report says 65 maternal deaths occurred in Australia between 2003 and 2005, with one woman dying for every 11,896 births.

Advertisement: Story continues below The deaths happened during pregnancy, labour or up to six weeks after birth and were either directly or indirectly related to the pregnancy or its mismanagement.

Twenty-nine were related solely to pregnancy while the remainder were linked to existing conditions such as depression, cardiac problems or substance abuse.

Alarmingly, there were 7.9 deaths per 100,000 non-indigenous women, compared with 21.5 deaths for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

The high rate of maternal mortality among indigenous woman has not abated since first measured in the early 1990s.

National Advisory Committee on Maternal Mortality chairman, Associate Professor James King, said the high rate of maternal indigenous deaths was due to a legacy of disadvantage.

"There is no measure of health where indigenous people are as well off as non-indigenous people," he told AAP.

"So it is not something specific to pregnancy. It is related to deep deprivation, it is related to generations of health issues and it is partly related to access and remote living."

Women younger than 17 were at a higher risk of pregnancy related death and the trend of women to delay childbirth into their 30s was not evident in the indigenous population, Prof King said.

Indigenous women can experience complications during childbirth due to conditions they have had since childhood, such as rheumatic heart disease, he said.

"There are (also) situations in Australia where women are giving birth in communities where you don't have immediate access to evacuation," Prof King said.

Australia fares well compared with other countries in the region.

In 2000, Oceania had 240 deaths per 100,000 live births, compared with 8.4 in Australia.

The leading causes of maternal deaths for all Australian women were amniotic fluid embolism, high blood pressure and blood clotting.

An amniotic fluid embolism is a rare event when toxic fluid inside the amniotic sac escapes into a woman's bloodstream and she experiences circulatory collapse.

Reporting of maternal deaths is not mandatory at a national level and data is collected separately by each state and territory.

Data including indigenous status and caesarean section was not consistently collected across the country.

Prof King said there was no federal funding available for the production of the next maternal deaths report, measuring the 2006-08 period.

"We are concerned federally there doesn't seem to be as much support for measuring maternal mortality as there should be," he said.

"The data is not of sufficient quality to enable us to learn the lessons that we should from these tragic cases."

AIHW director Penny Allbon said she was concerned no resources had been identified to sustain and improve reporting in the future.

"Another key to improving Australia's performance in relation to maternal deaths is the proposed introduction of a national agreed system of review with cross-disciplinary expertise and a standardised audit process."

Health Minister Nicola Roxon said the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council would consider funding for the report in due course.

"We are determined to turn these figures around," she told AAP.

"We have committed to closing the life expectancy gap within a generation, and that will require determined effort when it comes to maternal health."

Ms Roxon said the government had committed $260 million to a program tackling indigenous maternal and infant health.

"As part of this plan, we will be introducing a new plan for nurse home visits," she said.

"This program will provide structured, sustained home visiting by skilled health professionals, starting during pregnancy."
