Something to learn from the PRC

The stereotype, fed with a daily dosage of bacon and hamburgers would frown on everything Chinese or China. This ancient country has gone down the sewers for several centuries and were in the worst stage of decay with maggots all over and left to die. It died but like the proverbial phoenix, rose from the dust to become a strong and self reliant nation when the people are well fed, have jobs and are proud to be Chinese again. Like it or not, they are happily feeding 1.3b people and with excess to spare and with a national reserves exceeding US$2 trillion. Spit at them, curse them if you like, they did not come to this point in their history by being stupid and daft. And what they have achieved is no accident and no fluke. And the odds stacked against them by the western powers were enormous. They have overcome without relying on foreign talents. The recent change of leadership in China is something that the West hoped will fail, with bloodshed and all that jazz of fierce infighting, instability and China about to break up, rioting and martial law and everything bad that they could dream up. All hogwash from the western academics and high brow analysts and institutions of great fame. Hu Jintao relinquished his leadership to Xi Jinping unceremoniously without a hitch except for all the hue and cry and insinuations in the West. A new team of younger leaders have taken over the rein to run the country for another ten years. The Chinese leadership renewal system has been put in place since the era of Deng Xiaoping. There will be juggling for position of power but all within the rules of the system. Younger leaders are put up to replace their predecessors and no one is allowed to entrench his position for life. Two terms and off you go to make way for new blood. The quiet and unassuming Hu Jintao did one more feat this time. He even relinquished the powerful PLA position to his successor, Xi Jinping. This is unprecedented and a show of confidence and trust that the new man is not only good for the job but his complete trust in him. And it also sends a signal that he is not going to stick around to mess around and hang on to power. This is a clinically efficient, no nonsense and great leader China has ever produced. No great speeches like Obama, but cool and purposeful in what he is tasked to do, and delivered. In fact the few leaders since Deng were all very able and selfless leaders that saw the rise of China from strength to strength. It is time like this, when a country needs good, able and selfless leaders, they came to serve and leave when the time comes for them to leave, gracefully and with full honour and respect from the people. They left behind a vibrant economy for their successors to continue to bring the country to a higher level. Great leaders are difficult to come by. Great leaders need not look suave like actors from Hollywood. It is real substance that counts. Hu Jintao handed a China that is economically, military and strategically sound and well placed to a younger man to continue with the good work done by him and his predecessors. This is something that we can learn from China.

Chin Leng had stated the facts sweetly and simply.
Must say that many China Chinese have great respect for their National Leaders(Central Government). Speak to any Chinese National and one can feel the pride in them and their respect and love for the Chinese Leadership.

May the People Of The Republic Of China be blessed with good leadership for a long time to come.

In PRC, already no one has this idea that "Without Chairman Hu or Chairman Xi, the women are going to be domestic worker".

In Singapore, many still think that without LKY, we will all go and die. PRC has already de-deified their leaders. PRC will only laugh at the mind set of Singaporeans.

Certainly the greatest legacy of Deng Xiaoping is the destruction of the idea that "the leader is the country and the country is the leader."

Deng set the stage for a renewed China.
His greatest legacy is giving the Chinese people a belief that they can move on to bigger and better things without him.

How many books did Deng author during his reign of running the most populous and diverse country in the world?
versus he-whose-name-cannot-be-mentioned for running the smallest country in the world.

I still prefer a system of check and balances. The current communist is afflicted with systemic corruption that newly anointed leader Xi has to acknowledge it is the numero uno problem facing the government today. Why is it so bad, in large part because of an opaque system with effective checks and balances.

The internet is part of checks & balance.
If nothing to hide, why does China restrict access to websites?

How many countries do not have corruption? It is only in what kind and how they take from the system. The most corrupt countries are those that claimed to have no corruption.

Oh no, Red Dot does not need to learn from PRC. On the contrary, the leaders of Red Dot have been dispensing advice and teaching everybody around the world on how to rule and change leaders.

The only problem is that they do not follow what they preach.

One thing about success: the newer generations who don't have to struggle like their forebears have no appreciation, no idea, no clue on how it is to fight from the very bottom; failing many times and perhaps not succeeding...unless you're one of the "lucky" ones.

And the new young generations tend to feel "guilty" about the wealth, and either sqaunder it, or give it away to their special interests.

And China might be any things...but pay attention to the growing breed of asshole spoilt brats...resplendent in their rudeness, disrespect, contempt for "lesser" humans, over weight, petulant and all-round ugly cunt of a human being.

Got manners, motherfucker?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

You understand the new generation? You know them and know what is in their mind?

Got pomposity?

Matilah_Singapura said...

Suffice it to say, I understand the new generation more than you do.

Remember, I got young gals to massage me here in Bkk, and I'm a chatty fellow and a charming conversationalist.

Got communication skills?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

What did they call you? Ah Hia?

That kind of conversation is to please an Ah Hia for better tips and you used that as understanding the young?

Khun L-on. Lon is Thai word for bald.

I tell you, these chicks dig me man ;-)

Jealous yet?

Just enjoy your little moments of crowning glory, khun Lon: )

I do.

Just ask any girl who has sat naked on my smooth bald head ;-)

If one innocently applies an insufficient amount of sealer on a very porous concrete material, the said material may
not be effective at all. The estimate you receive will be based on the number of skips
you need, what size skip you want, and how long you plan to keep it.

* Not Ideal For Floors: While this is a great option for the walls, it's a less-than-impressive option for the floors.

Otherwise you may feel frustration to play these games.
Some of the game titles that are part of this genre involve the more recent of the Red Baron series and European Air model.

how it works, but once that was done, it was a breeze.
