All of the TW and most of the HK people I know don't want to be pidgeon-holed as being Chinese. They ...
i disagree with that. mainlanders seem much more free. in fact, you can tell by the way they drive. not to say that their driving is a good thing, but generally speaking, the mainland is much more free. i look around the streets, and street vendors are given much more freedom than the ones in hk/tw. in the mainland, you can download lots of movies, software, and songs that you cant in hk/tw. in hk/tw, theres alot of pressure to agree with the western status quo. so, you basically have to say things that are in line with the west, otherwise, you'll just have to keep quiet, or silent. theres also huge pressure in hk/tw to buy imported items from western countries, whereas, you have more freedom to be yourself, and buy local in the mainland. theres also huge pressure to maintain a superficial appearance in tw/hk. that is why people are frequently pressured into getting cosmetic surgery, or spending thousands on their appearance in hk/tw. theres also very little freedom to be patriotic in hk, or tw. if you do, you will be marginalized. thats the way it really is, not so much the way the shills describe it. all the problems described exist in the mainland too. it's just much worse in hk/tw.
