Nice try putting in a nice word for a propaganda stooge who has nothing betzter to do than to post ...

"How can you say he likes anything of China when the stooge has never exposed his sensitive being to Chinese reality? He studiously keeps away from China and only pays lip service to its rulers. "

Let us assume for a moment that that is true. Why should an American pay lip service to a government who are arguably Communist? Come to that, isn't it a little arrogant to claim to know Robert's likes and dislikes better than he does himself? Equally, you seemingly support an opposing point of view but by whose standards shall we judge which one of you is the stooge?

I've been to China many times while you have never been there.
Your whole existence on this forum  ...

Seneca has never been to China? What else is in this bag of worms?

Many other internet mercenaries in this forum who claim to live in China have never been there either.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

No, I would agree with your supposition depending on the period of residence. He might, however, h ...

That is acceptable.

On Topic; maybe, if foreigners live there long enough amongst the people instead of in nice housing  ...

In some major cities like Guangzhou, foreigners are required to live in certain estates or you cannot get your temporary residence permit.  Supposedly for "safety".  Where I currently live in Dongguan, I am the ONLY foreigner in the whole place.  Different cities, different requirements.  One reason I got the hell out of GZ.  Besides the sh1tty traffic and rude a$$holes.

It is a pity you chose to stay out of our little sand pit for so many months with all these newbie ...

There you go expressing your bigotry towards Communism. I live here and don't see it as an issue unless I wish to make it an issue.

Live and let live - it's not my country or yours.

Incidentally, before someone labels me as Communist or Marxist, I typically vote Conservative (centre-right) and not because I think the Conservatives make a good government but because the Labour Party (socialist) are an appalling party who leave financial ruin behind them. However, as far as trying to insult people by pinning labels on them such as Marxist or CCP troll or NED or whatever it is typically a symptom of somebody without any rational argument so nothing to get excited about.

Meanwhile, congratulations on your latest medal by the way. How many people did you have to browbeat with your views to get that level of recognition?

What does that have to do with you having never been to China?
