Chinese dealing with their own

Postby Baas Babelaas » 09 Dec 2010, 12:58

Living here I get pissed off with the behaviour of the locals, but I can deal with it. However I do take exception to the rich/moneyed/army/government people behaving like absolute cunts. I like that local people are dealing with them, mob-like.

Here are some links to these cunts:

I like the way the Chinese flesh-search the fuckers, or work them on the street.

I know, it's an awesome form of vigilante-ism.

I enjoyed that. I spent 4 months in China this year hoping for the chance to do just what these people did. The farthest I got was smashing the sides of a few cars with my fist or bag as they sped too close to me, yelling at lots of people, and cursing out a few taxi drivers for not stopping for old ladies and women with children. I actually asked a few, in a serious tone, what was wrong with Chinese men that they didn't care about women with children and the elderly? So much for Confucianism. Fuckers. I hope to see more of this.

Reminds me of a story in Hainan. A guy goes into a bank and while he is waiting in line some bigshot cuts in. The bank says nothing. So when the guy gets to the counter he withdraws a couple thousand yuan in Y1 notes and proceeds to spend the next hour counting the money at the counter. He refuses to count elsewhere, rightly claiming that as soon as he leaves the counter the bank is no longer accountable if the amount proves to be wrong.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

The money counting story was a good one.

As for what the mob did, I'm a little bit wary of that sort of stuff. It's not a long stretch to China having a diplomatic scrap with Japan, for instance, and a Japanese businessman and family cowering in fear for their lives as a mob literally tears their car apart from around them. Maybe China needs to go through this phase to come out the other side with better government and civil liberties, but it won't be a pretty transition and I don't advocate that form of behaviour, as vindicating as it may be to participate or observe, as a response to abusive power.

Interesting story, not only for the story of people standing up against abusive authority figures, but also for the bizarre English prose: "Soon afterward, the impressive Dongbei people began to be impressive", etc.

Is it too early to start choir practice?



We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome some day

We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand some day

We shall all be free
We shall all be free
We shall all be free some day

We are not afraid
We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day

We are not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone some day

The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
