China thread Bernd 04/19/2020 (Sun) 08:45:55 [Preview] No. 36032
I'm not an expert on China at all, so half of statements here are assumptions, but I'll try to start.

First the official story about how China became economic powerhouse and pretended to world leadership.

After Mao period with hardcore stalinism and local craziness like Cultural Revolution with destruction of everything or killing sparrows because they are pests, China was in pretty bad economical condition. Government even had no proper statistics about economics, local government official were corrupted and selfish as always, there were food shortage and overall goods deficit - typical for planned economies.

Deng Xiaoping and his political group took control of Communist party, replacing old Mao faction, and started to do economic reforms, program called "reforms and openness". First they took agricultural sector. In 1978-1984 government replaced communes and brigades in agriculture with formally private plots of lands for families and local collectives.

In all parts of economics there was process of decentralization, local management got more freedom, private-like enterprises were allowed in some form. There still was a planned process with mix of fixed and market prices, different types of control from state and other thing, but overall economy moved from planned socialism to state capitalism. Foreign investment was supported, free economic zones were created.

Economy became more market in 1990, when system slowly transformed from plan-market mix to market with heavy government control, without noticeable plan part. Even typical capitalist traits are emerged, like income inequality and liquidation of inefficient, but important factories (that is always a heavy hit to local population).

Yet growth was tremendous. China transformed from mostly agrarian state with ruined economy to industrial and scientific leader. While in 80-90s it was just an outsourcing that was loved by everyone by cheap labor and low bureaucratic restrictions, now it is independent and self-sufficient country that actually competes with "old leaders" even in innovation. And even considering income inequality and some social problems, average Chinese now lives much better than in past. It is hard to compare average numbers like GDP per capita or wage, because China is too large, but there are plenty of places where average wage is already about 1000$. Different sources say that population already have income comparable with EU periphery.

Actually, it would be better to see someone with Chinese background to discuss this, because China is pretty "closed" to outsiders, but has large amount of historical materials and cultural things that we don't know.

But how this happened?

There are plenty of places in the world that have cheap labor and unlimited demographic resources, but only China could rise from outsourcing haven to something bigger.

India has same large population and even better starting position - no communism, better English language knowledge in population, open market economy and economical ties with UK. It has industry and science, but it is nothing compared to China. Eastern Europe (non-USSR part) started in same position as post-communist land, but still remains outsourcing haven for EU and nothing more, while having better educated people than China on average. Latin America struggles for years in constant growth/crisis cycles, also has no cultural and political restrictions as China, but overall it still undeveloped. USSR even had similar reforms (Perestroika) but it didn't help, and even now country is just an oil exporter and nothing more. Africa... oh, you all know.

Maybe first reason is a strong but adequate government. Top part of government decided to achieve the goal and had enough control to stop lower levels from failing it by corruption. Government also had no pressure from internal competitors, while in other countries it is more about "survive and win next elections, and who cares". But it couldn't be sole reason of course.

China also isn't a backwards country overall, it is country with thousands years of history, including imperial periods with large bureaucracy and half-religious legalism. It just had bad period in 18-20th centuries, but there were times when they were almost best in the world in development sense. Western historiography often ignores it because eurocentrism. And even communist disaster couldn't really destroy all thousand years of state legacy. Also it must be noticed that China is an Empire that didn't break, not a national state like European countries.

Another interesting concept is Chinese mentality. Contrary to popular opinion, Chinese people aren't hard working or devoted to labor as some other nations are. They also have no "protestant work ethic" or similar concept. They also, as other East Asian cultures, have different "shame" concept. When abstract European (with Abrahamic religion background) does something "bad", he often feels bad just because he did it. In non-abrahamic cultures, especially East Asian, it only happens when you are seen by someone, because there is no "sin" in Christian or Muslim terms. If you did something bad but no one noticed, everything is ok. Or if person who is noticed isn't from your group - it is not a problem when you are cheating outsider. Anyone who had interactions on Aliexpress already know about it.

There is an interesting threadcap image about Chinese cheating, fun to read.

Chinese as nation are also self-centered. They have no messianic desires, there is no desire to bring some faith, education, democracy or any other concept to everyone. If you can get profit while interacting with outsiders, it is good, if not - who cares. That results in economical exploitation and viewing everyone around more like a tool, not like something else. This also leads to relative peaceful foreign politics. If you look at Chinese history, it wasn't very aggressive to neighbors overall. Yeah, there were some local wars, bringing neighbors into tributary status, and recent Tibet occupation, but this is nothing compared to European or American war-mongering and colonialist policy. Chinese expansion is very pragmatic and profit-oriented, they just exploit everything what they can in economic sense, using diaspora to project their interests, but had no real interest in changing the world.

It is also interesting to discuss individualism concept. Westerners often think that Asians are ant-like collectivist people, compared to individualistic Western persons. But there is another approach. If you look into European countries, especially Germanic, you'll see that they actually much more communal and conformist than Asian. People are still trust government and community, feel cohesion and try to help each other. Look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Jante for example. Western societies are high-trust, and we easily see how this is exploited by migrants.

Compared to this, Asian mindset is much more individualistic - people care about others much less if they aren't related. You can't actually build hard totalitarian state with massive repressions when you care about people around. But when you care about yourself only, it is much easier. Need to exploit or even execute someone? Who cares, it is not you and not your relative. Would people starve from your politics? Whatever, my ideas matter more than these commoners etc. You see dying person on street? You may get in trouble when you help him, better to go away, he isn't you, why care? Your boss makes some order that will do more bad than good? It is still better to do this because it is about your well being, and forget about others.

From the start of the video, I can tell something's wrong, mainly in that India was once a bigger country than China. China simply expanded and remained undisturbed and giant, plus because it expanded it took over old trade routes to a very valuable region which traded with India through both land and sea. India was conquered and so China started to become irrelevant after the Mings and Qings.

India and China have many similarities. Both is some kind of "multicultural" (in classic terms) Empires with rich history of state building and with existing culture (compared to Africa for example). They both experienced European pressure, India was simply conquered and made into official part of British Empire, China was forced to became colony-like dependent state by Europeans and neighbors in 19th century.

But for some reason India didn't progress much as China. Maybe root is in culture and historical background. I don't know about India much, but people said that it is more "anarchistic" inside, i.e. people have more laid-back attitude overall. Chinese, on other side, have rich legalist history.

Of course is it hard to compare countries, because even some small happenings in history may end in different outcomes.

But there are other large populated countries like Indonesia or Nigeria, and they still don't show Chinese-style economic growth. Although in terms of outsourcing they better on paper for cheap labor.

Yes, he could give much better insight into this thread. Sadly, he is missing.

Taiwan is also interesting. It is technically still China in cultural and historical terms, and show same economic grow. Yet it doesn't have strong communist rule or something, so that rule isn't a real reason for Chinese success.

They've had large continuous US investments (mostly for political purposes, i.e. to be a Chinese enemy and US base), but overall it is just a small island with no resources. Yet they still look much better than many others.

So, I guess, there is something more than just cheap labor and resources. As far as I know, even "democratic" Taiwan still show some specific Chinese state and society traits.

Hinduism was attacked by Buddhism in India (which merged once Islam came in, and thus destroyed traditional Aryan Hinduism) while in China, it just contemplated Confucianism etc.
Plus China is geographically more limited and thus more militarist than India. India is surrounded by mountain ranges which are in-turn surrounded by deserts in the west and north, and jungles in the east.

>As far as I know, even "democratic" Taiwan still show some specific Chinese state and society traits.
Taiwan was under autocratic rule for decades, they also had a strong and determined leadership. In the brief period the KMT had previously gotten a semblance of hegemony over the mainland (the Nanjing decade) China was already gearing up for fast development, and at the same time Japanese-controlled Manchuria had its industrial boom. Other Far Eastern economies ahead of mainland China's (Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong) were for most of the second half of the last century or up to this day either autocratic or democratic but incomplete/monopolized by a single party. It might not have much to do with autocracy: those states have good governance as demonstrated by their reaction to this year's pandemic being the best in the developed world.

>>36056
>This illusion might come from their numbers and the overcrowded giant cities many of them live in.
And also from the Maoist period. Mao didn't implement his ideas through simple top-down legalistic imposition like Soviet collectivization, but got the masses to his side and had them enthusiastically carry out his campaigns at the local level. Hence one fatso in Beijing orders the murder of sparrows and immediately hundreds of thousands are putting all their hearts to kill sparrows. This was also part of his power strategy as he got ideological zealots at the bottom of the political hierarchy to fight with their superiors, weakening the superiors' ability to oppose him. As an outsider it's hard not to get an impression of ants at first sight.

Taiwanese Bernd said that there are ties between Taiwan and mainland, students go for education and people travel to work. I was surprised, because I thought that relations between countries are far from normal. But looks like time changes everything.

At least in 90s Taiwanese stuff was mostly made in Taiwan. I guess now China overtook them in terms of development and tech, and in future will absorb Taiwan by economical force, not military. Pretty good strategy actually.

Very good rus-bernd, but it still raises the question, why the fuck are we trading with them, essentially empowering them, if we don't like their politics or relate to their culture?

On a personal note, the Chinese really do not give a fuck about anyone but themselves. A strong attitude to have in a way but not a nice community, if you can even call it that, to live in. I saw a man dying in the street and people literally walking over him to go into shops. If the Chinese ever had souls, they must have lost them in the cultural revolution. Truly they have no shame, like a nation of dogs. I think this is why Buddhism, which respects living things, was such a radical idea and an important one to China but the regime drove the Buddhists out, smashed their temples and burned their parchments.

Perhaps this is why China is stronk economy, because they are a large nation of soulless consumers.

As this american said >>32828 , America was instrumental in propping up the Soviet Union, which in turn propped up the current regime in China. Everything's been done by proxy, so nobody can know exactly who did, nor can they take blame since technically "they didn't do it". My guess for the end goal in all of this is that every single economy in the world tanks in comparison to China due to everything discussed in this thread, most important being cheap labor, cheap materials and cheap lives.

Let me see --> America funds the commies --> commies rekts everythings --> Make everyone depends on commie supplies since they're so cheap compared to the things in your own country--> Control all commie things in the backseat and laugh when people still can't get that you're responsible for everything --> hell on earth --> It's ogre-ville

Technically the Chinese themselves are also to blame, as they caused the Boxer Rebellion and thus the Wuchang Uprising by jointly massacring Prussian/Japanese/British diplomats, and then overthrowing their own government for being invaded by them. Then the said Japanese invaded again, which left the power vacuum to later establish the PRC.
I wouldn't really blame them, as China always hated foreign merchants, spies, and diplomats and so do I, but don't blame it solely on the USA. They weren't even involved in the Boxer and Wuchang rebellions.

>why the fuck are we trading with them
The "free" market fixed that way. As I wrote in the other thread it's advantageous to choose them as a source, buying their stuff is cheaper than produce them locally.
While OP questioned the cheap labor, there are other factors. One probably is the incentive the Chinese govt. hands out for setting up companies. One other, that with every new piece produced the production gets cheaper, and they can produce in such a huge volume the cost of production is low. And then transportation is similar, those giant ships can bring such massive amounts that the transportation cost per one item is trivial. Probably some other stuff in play, but the underline is local companies cannot compete.
Btw the large possible volume comes from consumerism. Since we use a product for a short time (planned obsolescence) and purchase another again this ensures more stuff has to be churned out than the actual needed amount (if the they would be durable, or feasibly repairable, or just repairable at all).
With conscious decisions the customer can pick goods that aren't from China, but it's not easy, and not possible in case of certain products (liek computer parts and such).
Why governments don't stop Chinese goods? Because tariffs are part of the income. And relations with China is more than simple buying their stuff. Now they are foreign investors. Chinese companies are established worldwide. They create jobs, and help development.
For now that's all what came to mind.

That was more of a response to Western and Japanese Intervention though. We invaded them first actually. Search for "Opium wars" for more info also the US helped with the Second Opium wars. Although, the Boxer rebellion was more of China taking advantage of an opportunity done by an outlier group. It wasn't started by the Qing Dynasty

>but don't blame it solely on the USA. They weren't even involved in the Boxer and Wuchang rebellions.
See pic rel. They were involved though. Along with a lot of other countries. It was a little crazy tbh. It's a literal clusterfuck of a mess

I looked at the Wuchang incident, and it doesn't look like China proper was to blame either. That was done by "revolutionary" groups... who went to the US to get financial support there Chinese expats were the main focus

Britain did because they wouldn't want to trade with India, which included opium. Portugal did centuries before and they were fine with that, you did as well, you got your shit beat in in Taiwan. Japan beat China in the Sino-Japanese war, which allowed them to take over Korea which was previously Chinese. It was in-fact the attack on the German embassy that was a part of the Boxer Rebellion, which is why they led the attack, and the Meiji restoration that led to Japan conquering Korea was Prussian influenced with the addition of the old Samurai honour system. Technically it was the US that forced the Shogunate to become weak, but they had nothing to do with the Meiji restoration otherwise, it was a German-influenced monarchy and culture (which is why they were so similar before WW2, and why the Germans and Japs are still both a pair of faggots today). Anyways, The Germans, Japs, Austro-Hungarians, Russians, and Frenchmen all teamed up to take out the Qings after Chinese massacres of westerners was used as a casus belli, and they succeeded in taking giant cities in China. Thus, the Qings were weak and susceptible to rebellion.
About the Wuchang rebellion, it's wholly Chinese. Not only was it performed by people already from the Qing government, but it was done by HAN CHINESE people from the Qing government. You see, the Qing dynasty wasn't Han Chinese, it was Manchu, quite like how the Yuan dynasty was Mongol, or how Charlemagne was actually not French or German but a jew, etc.; now the Qings were literally a continuation of the Jurchen Jin dynasty, and the emperor Hong Taiji even called himself the Great Khan. The Chinese "revolutionaries" weren't overthrowing China, they were overthrowing Manchu rule of China. This culminated in mass-massacres of Manchus by Han and other groups like Hui Muslims, Mongols, etc. Thus, the Republic of China was established as a Chinese republic, for Chinese people. Taiwan is a direct continuation of this state, but all that war left a power vacuum for Mao Zedong to take over.

Why is China the greatest society on the planet Earth?

Many nations pride themselves with their rich history and long lasting civilization, but one nation above all has the right to claim the title of the first and longest lasting civilized culture on this planet - and that is China. Chinese civilization is so ancient that the only nation that can barely compete is Persia. There is no western country that can even come close in terms of rich history. While Chinese people were developing writing and philosophy, Europeans were just bunch of savages scratching each other's backs in a forest. While Chinese people were developing agriculture and complex gastronomy, Europeans were picking worms from tree bark and eating those. While Chinese people developed mathematics, Europeans held mass sex orgies and were killing babies in religious pagan rituals. While Chinese people were developing physics, mechanics and engineering in order to build complex war machines, Europeans were hitting each other's heads with rocks. While Chinese people were developing chemistry, leading to invention of gun powder, Europeans thought that urine must contain gold, since it's yellow.

For the bigger part of history it was China where all the world changing inventions came from. It was only in the 20th century that Europeans gained a slight edge, but that is only temporary, since as Chinese philosophers say: All the things that are against nature are only temporary and short-lived. Speaking of philosophers, notice how the greatest philosophers of all time who created whole schools of thought like Lao-Tzu, Confucius or Han Feizi are all Chinese, while Europe gave birth only to trashy philosophers like Nietzsche.

High intelligence of Chinese people together with typical Asian hard working nature also played a crucial role in China's steep economic rise that we all could witness recently. It is called "Chinese miracle" for a reason. Getting from poverty to economic prosperity so extremely fast has no precedent in the history of mankind. The only society capable to achieve such miracle is the Chinese society.

And why is it that the only society capable of achieving all these miracles is the Chinese one? It's because the Chinese society has the best social structure and the right cultural values which allows it to go much further than the Western societies. Chinese people don't waste their time with silly individualism. Unlike Westerners Chinese people are aware that individualism is a path leading straight to hell. Chinese people made the correct choice when picked an ideology of strong collectivism. By combining communism with strong nationalist tendencies, they have created an ideal society that can withstand even the hardest of times. Collectivism is like a thread that ties and binds a society together and helps it to go through any storm, it keeps it afloat even in bad times. Collectivism is the answer for every crisis. The western societies could never withstand as much as the Chinese society can. They would shatter into pieces and burn in flames of internal conflicts completely almost immediately. Individualism always fails in time of crisis.

Recently China was able to demonstrate that their collectivist ways are the right way to go yet again, when they defeated the coronavirus swiftly, by utilizing their strong government and its abilities to use necessary regulations in order to solve this kind of crisis. And they managed to do it perfectly. Western countries on the other hand are still struggling with the virus. Even tho the Western countries had much more time to prepare than China, they are actually doing very poorly. Their silly individualism is not just silly in this case, but it is an obstacle that stops them from putting necessary regulations in place in order to avert the crisis. That's why as Chinese people celebrate the victory in a war against the virus, the Western countries are digging mass graves. The difference could not be more obvious.

Actually many aspects of Chinese civilization are not that old, for example by the time bronze trickled down to them through the north even C*lts in Britain were working with Iron and most of the famous buildings in China are also relatively recent, often even less than 500 years old, there really isn't much in China that's older than that and still in decent condition. Chinese society itself comes across more as a extant ancient society like Egypt or Mesopotamia in the way it functioned and such rather than a modern nation, well formerly it's modern now.

Also, even the technology they are credited with is vastly overrated.

Yes, they invented the crossbow but it really was just a bow on a stick(literally a bow, often repurposed from a bow even). They didn't have dedicated limbs for them, they didn't have any kind of stirrup for a very VERY long time, and even that was just a loop of sting at the end. Up until then(it could even have been the 13th century or later) they were reloding by spanning the bow from their backs using their feet. Even the famous Chi Ko nu was a worthless as anything but a toy, far too weak to be able to do much and the bolts not even being fletched.

Kekked tho. Reminding me a little of our Sammurai friend. I wonder what he would say reading all this.
While you have points I can agree with you made those in a tone that it feels if your actual purpose was trolling (but such a long post just for that? I don't think so).

Many people consider my ideas to be "just trolling", but that is only because normies can't believe that other people hold radical beliefs.
If you read my NazBol manifesto, I'm sure that you would consider it a some kind of elaborate joke, but it was meant completely seriously.

>Britain did because they wouldn't want to trade with India, which included opium.

Nod really. Chinese emperor Daoguang Emperor or Prince Zhi of the First Rank 智親王 decided to ban opium around 1729 because it was harming his citizens and was embarrassing him seeing people of the royal court being addicted to it. England then decided to invade since Opium was around 20 percent of the British Empire's revenue at that time. It wasn't just because they wouldn't trade with India. They traded with multiple countries. They just decided that they wanted to be a healthy society instead. You can read it all here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium#Prohibition_and_conflict_in_China

>In response to the ever-growing number of Chinese people becoming addicted to opium, the Qing Daoguang Emperor took strong action to halt the smuggling of opium, including the seizure of cargo. In 1838, the Chinese Commissioner Lin Zexu destroyed 20,000 chests of opium in Guangzhou

>Given that a chest of opium was worth nearly US$1,000 in 1800, this was a substantial economic loss. The British queen Victoria, not willing to replace the cheap opium with costly silver, began the First Opium War in 1840, the British winning Hong Kong and trade concessions in the first of a series of Unequal Treaties

The current emperor of that time was just trying to look out for his own people

>you got your shit beat in in Taiwan

You win some, you lose some

>But was in-fact the attack on the German embassy that was a part of the Boxer Rebellion, which is why they led the attack,
But dude that was done by rebels. They only supported the Boxers because they lost so much freedom and strength as a nation after they lost the 2nd Opium war. They were popular because the Chinese thought they could get rid of "Western imperialism". Now, I don't agree with them at all, but that's just what I gathered researching the subject.

>About the Wuchang rebellion, it's wholly Chinese. Not only was it performed by people already from the Qing government,
No that was done by revolutionary groups fighting against the then Chinese monarchy. The Tongmenghui and the Hubei Military Government doing the fighting against the Qing. Doesn't show up that they belonged to the Qing government

>The Chinese "revolutionaries" weren't overthrowing China,
That was done as a reaction to the incompetence and general hatred they had for the ruling class at that time

>You see, the Qing dynasty wasn't Han Chinese, it was Manchu
They've been invaded and have had their rulers assimilate themselves dozens of times though. Nothing out of the usual actually

But those are just the conclusions and data I gathered after doing some lengthy research on each subject mentioned

kek
It was just that they fought with literal medieval gear while most Western countries and Japan used modern equipment, for that time at least.

They had an isolationist policy for the most part so they barely had any contact with other countries.

The emperor declined to buy from India before the opium trade started, but the royal court was addicted to Indian opium. It was both for health reasons and for opposing the British.
>But dude that was done by rebels. They only supported the Boxers because they lost so much freedom and strength as a nation after they lost the 2nd Opium war.

It was Han Chinese rebels, many of whom were within the government.
>That was done as a reaction to the incompetence and general hatred they had for the ruling class at that time
But the Wuchang rebellion came from within the ruling class.
>They've been invaded and have had their rulers assimilate themselves dozens of times though. Nothing out of the usual actually
The Manchu emperors weren't really assimilated though. They wore Manchu dress, literally enforced a Manchu hairstyle among Han Chinese, had Manchu titles, considered themselves Manchu, even the royalist battle in Peking during the Wuchang rebellion was called the "Manchu restoration". There were massive massacres of Manchus by Han Chinese and Hui Muslims after the Wuchang rebellion.
Again, the Qing dynasty was basically a Manchu empire that ruled China, Mongolia, Xinjiang and Tibet.

>literal medieval gear
The Ming dynasty used breechloaders in the 16th century, and by the time of the Boxer rebellion, the Qing even had ironclads from trading with the non-British Europeans.

China actually did produce their own cannons and muskets and had substantial quantities of them. It would have been less embarrassing if they actually did fight with Hula hops, less embarrassing, I don't think even that would explain things like this.

Henry VIII had a breach loader and many early cannon were breach-loaded. It's nothing that revolutionary.

I don't write you were trolling due to your radical beliefs, I wrote it because what you wrote looks as if it was designed for pissing off people by exaggerating Chinese civilizational achievements (their ancientness) and European backwardness. Sometimes I do similar in short quips just for the fun so I'm familiar with this technique but you really drag this long.
Also has nothing to do with radical beliefs when you wrote the Chinese did right with the virues, they solved the crisis, and defeated it. First they failed to contain it, second now that the world media has attention elsewhere they just shut up about their current situation so we don't know and can't know what is their current situation really is.
Btw they don't combine communism with anything, there is no communism left in China, it's just dictatorship with red flags and stars, and hardcore capitalism.
This here >>36200 is a solid advice.
