Firstly, Chinese who left China for the USA on various reasons are related to timing of events of conflicts within like those civil wars in China between old_CKS_KMT and CPC; and hence many of those Chinese abroad stuck therein were the outcomes of the frantic exodus out of Taiwan island, Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China.
Secondly, in support of the old_CKS_KMT, clandestine groups splintered into units attempting to return to the mainland for whatever reasons are also stuck abroad. Then, you would have noticed, if you are residing abroad, those unfaithful and disloyal mainlanders (officials and children) who were sent abroad to study the English lingo but did not go home.
Thank you for replying and your insight on this.
I never knew there were groups trying to get back to china. Interesting.
My one old friend, as I said, his parents & family fled during the cultural revolution.
His parents were children then. But they did pass on stories that made my friend have mixed feelings about china.
Love of country is one thing, but love for your mom is another. And if she tells you stories where she was scared, well...who doesn't feel protective of mothers?
He didn't hate china, that's for sure. But anytime we would talk politics he would bring back up those stories.
These families that fled, they never saw things get better. So they are still kind of stuck kind of in time with the image they have of china.
I wouldn't underestimate either the effect of this on the american public. Just like with the cold war, if the only people you talk to were very unhappy dissenters, well...you're view is going to be skewed. You're going to think that everyone feels that way and has similar experiences.
So, I think that has to be taken into account.
Thanks again for your reply.
