Does China have the "right" system for a "one world govt?"

    They are a billion plus and increasing, yet suffer little "within," and deftly resist being involved in war in other countries.
    They rule with an "iron fist" and stop internal dissonance immediatley.
    There is no doubt that predatory,contemporary man "needs" to be controlled.
    Their numbers of "billionaires" is increasing and even tho wages are low for the worker, they seem to be living comfortably.

      Sometimes little keys can open big locks, China has capture world's market and they have made certain Laws to control population, they are strong and have friends in the world, their people are hard working and they have achieve a lot due to their wise thinking. We should have strong will power to do the right thing and make the right decision. GOD help those who help themselves.      smile

          I graduated as an MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) from DOW MEDICAL COLLEGE, KARACHI, PAKISTAN  and practice my medicine around the world selflessly and came into Politics and contested General Election as an Independent Candidate. Kindly answer my one question: Who created the world and us? Muslim,Hindus,Christians and many other Nations believe in GOD.

            TY for responding to my question.
            The answer to your question: " Who created the world and us?" is presumptuous.
            Why would you presume a "who" (What or which person or persons)would create the world and us?
            Your question is obviously, to me, based upon a background in religion. Am I wrong?
            I can tell you with great certainty that no one can answer that question in any form but "opinion."
            If I were to attempt to answer it, my answer would be: serendipity is the creator.
            If you can prove me wrong I'll welcome your thoughtful intellectual response.

        Regardless of many problems and issues with China or Chinese government (well, just as the many problems with any other governments) we are or not aware of, one thing is sure: you don't know a thing about China.

        How many the US has killed? Or they don't kill anyone?

        China does not get involved in wars; if the US could do the same, the world would be a lot more peaceful, ,more importantly, the Americans would be a lot more richer

        By 'society' he means the tiny group of super rich white males that he worships and waits beneath for crumbs to fall from the table, unfortunately he still hasn't grasped that waiting underneath just gets you the crap.

        Thinking that alternative systems are by their alternate nature just bad prevents us thinking about how to improve them and our own systems.  This blindness leads to the mountains of dis-information, lies and fabricated little stories - and the emotive displays about other systems - which are hypocritical beyond belief.

        To talk, as someone earlier, about a few minor border skirmishes in a region famous for border skirmishes and where India and Pakistan still shell each other daily - from a position that seeks to ignore the murder and devastation in the same periods of our own countries is almost creepy in its wilful ignorance.  If we can't criticise our own actions how do we deserve the right to criticise similar behaviour in others.

        I have really thought long and hard on the issue of a 1 world government, but who really knows?

        China's system is not right, nor is the US. Both have their strengths, and weaknesses. I am disliking many of the things the US is doing right about meow, and it is really turning me off more and my as days go by. China certainly does certainly have many great attributes as well, it is so intriguing to see what is going to happen.

        You guys saying it won't happen in your lifetime, you may be right, but I am certainly hoping it will happen in mine! It certainly is a possibility. Maybe I'll start my movement soon and get this ball rolling.

        There is no reason that in the near future, with social networking sites and the internet, that things can't happen a lot more rapidly than they are appearing to.

        Our world is going to change a lot, and I am so excited to see whats ahead of us.

            I think it all depends when and if we get our act together. Which actually can start tomorrow. Something is going to happen, we are at the next stage of life. We are not at the point in life that our fathers have worked so hard for, for millions of years. I think it is about time we pay them back, and make all their work worth it.

            What does our debt and paper money matter if the people take over rather than the gov'ts. I'm not worried about the Economy, it is a made up currency. As soon as we decide that that paper is worth nothing, its worth nothing.

            Government is taking control more and more, and not letting our economy do it's thing. We don't need the government for many of these programs, we need our people to step up.

        We already have a form of one world government Quark. That central bank system set in motion the ponzi housing bubble, culminating in Alan Greenspan's recommendation in February 2004 that you could get a "better deal" by taking out an adjustable mortgage. This was a planned central bank scam, so don't tell me one world government is beneficial or benign because it isn't. I have a hub on it.

        One world government is greedy and predatory.

          No doubt a "New World Order" is in the works.
          As we presently exist a "one world gov't, is "greedy and predatory..." is true.
          There is no chance for a "1 world gov't" to exist today.
          We are a massive, fragmented species which hasn't the maturity to function in concert under the authority of such a gov't body.
          There is no doubt that $ controls absolutely and absolute power corrupts absolutely!
          A "New World Order" will have as its foundation corporate power.
          I think we will realize that by the end of this yr.
          Our "buck" is becoming less valuable and other nations to whom we are in debt are meeting in clandestine fashion to change world currencies to suit there needs.
          The world is shrinking. China, Russia etc., are becoming more like America in the past and we are becoming more like them in the past.
          We were manufacturers. We are now servers.
          We are slipping fast and we Americans seem to be reacting very naively to what is hapopening to us and the world.

      China pretty much has most of it right!  They are heading directly to become the next world top economy, the next superpower and the living standards of ALL its population is rising, not equally but that has never happened anywhere before either.

      As an observer with little political contact or particular interest, I see little difference in their way of governing and any western so-called democracy.  In the US you get to vote on which particular group of white rich males get to feed off you and which super-rich guy will be your pres.  Here the local comittee both carry out the instructions from above and also send their own representation up.

      Here dissent is discouraged in proportion to its seriousness, in the west any dissent is lost in the screaming of its opposition that we like to call free speach.  In the US serious dissent is called un-american activity and gets the same response from your so-called democratically elected gov.

      The actual difference that I see is that China has historically defended its borders but has never shown any interest in colonialisation, the bedrock of western governments and economies.  China has not 'gone to war' on the other side of its world, at any time in its, at least, 3000 year history, (they claim 5000).

      China has had the same basic government model for a couple of thousand years with a central body operating through satellite bodies in descending authority - now the partyat the centre and in the satellite bodies, before it was the Emporer and his minions - the structure remains the same. 

      What I find most interesting in any comparison is that between the times that Alexander the Great was destroying the Persian empire and the Roman Empire set out to conquer most of our ancestors in Europe - the Chinese were holding national examinations for entry to the civil service in poetry.

      As to the question about one world government, the Chinese have never shown any interest in governing anything outside China's immediate sphere of influence.  Regarding the idea of the world adopting the Chinese system of government - it appears on balance to suit the Chinese temperament of self discipline and tolerance, it would not suit the undisciplined and intolerant nature of most western states.

                @ recommend1...I was born in China and raised in the US. Thus, my world view is undoubtedly more "Western" than yours, but I have been to China and understand that it's not as corrupt as it's painted out to be. China's system is undoubtedly more efficient than many others around the world since the government can make decisions instantly, instead of spending months arguing about it. However, in the end, it all boils down to what you consider to be more important - personal liberties or order/efficiency.

                For me, I would choose Human Rights any day over efficiency. I like it here in the US and I like knowing that the truth is not constantly being filtered and twisted to illuminate the government. No country is perfect, but the fact that the Chinese government has both Baidu and Google employing active firewalls to block out controversial information sucks.

                Economic stability does not equal Social stability.

                And beside, I think your argument can be used against you. Have YOU ever lived in a Western country? After all, how can you boast about how awesome China is if you've never experienced what another country has to offer? I don't mean to offend, but I'm saying...

                  Hi Marketting sceptic

                  You are mistaken - I am not Chinese, I just live here.

                  I have no particular wish or need to 'defend' China per se, but I feel obliged to counter the more ridiculous nonsense that appears in these threads from time to time.  I also do the same for the west hre in China.  My line is intercultural communication and exchange, and is about helping both sides to understand each other.  Understanding comes through discussion - but if bull@@it is presented as fact it helps no-one.

                  With regard to your comment about Human rights - the record of the US is far worse, you have more people (mostly black) in jail than any other nation - you have Guantanemo and you are wreaking devastation and death in many places in the world, Iraq just the latest.

                  With regard to news - you get just the same twist and turn on your news, the only difference is that you get so much garbage that you cannot sort the truth from the Fox.

                  And I am not boasting or even suggesting that China is Awesome - it is just another country with a different set of rules and ways of living. I will admit to enjoying living here if you like. 

                  I report what I see and what normal Chinese around me are saying.

                    I disagree.
                    I think China has far worse track record than the US, just think about Tibet. Plus, look up how China deals with drug offenders - they're taken from their homes, locked up in sweatshops to work (under the whole, hard-work will cure everything mentality), not offered any treatment to get off their addictions...and are trapped in that system for years to decades. Err...so be careful if anyone offers you anything illegal! It won't matter if you're not a citizen since China is strict! =] BBC reported awhile ago that China executed a mental disabled British man for bringing cocaine (I think) into the country.   

                    Read this article by the Human Rights Watch:
                    http://www.hrw.org/en/reports/2010/01/0 … o-limits-0

                    The thing is with China is that their press is government sanctioned so the people only know what the government wants them to know (unless they've actually experienced injustice first hand). Besides, the Chinese are proud that their country is rising up and becoming a dominant world economy...so I don't doubt that they'd want you to think well of them.

                    There's a big difference between living somewhere nice like Shanghai or Beijing than somewhere more rural or in smaller cities (where they're usually fonder for sweat shops).

                    With respect, you are not Uigur or Tibetan. The US crimes in central America were generally carried out during the 60s and are not ongoing and the large prison population in the US could be mitigated against if you shot people without giving them fair trials first. There are also very few in prison because they disagree with government policy.

                    China has a shocking human rights record and it's silly to try to draw a parallel on human rights between the US and China. I mean if you're goig to cite historic US actions in centrl america, then you could just as easily cite the cultural revolution in china.

                    I'm slightly surprised you're allowed to post on here if you're under the golden curtain too. You looked up "Egypt" on google today?!

    China has a lot of dissension simmering below the surface. The military is becoming more assertive and less submissive to the communist party rulers. The new budget will increase spending on social issues, to try to keep the masses under control.

    The world has put a lot of it's eggs in the China basket and if China should erupt in revolt, or if their real estate bubble should burst, everyone's economy will be in big trouble.

      Where do you get your information that China's military is becoming more assertive and less submissive ?

      How does increasing spending on domestic issues 'keep the masses under control"  ?

      This kind of blanket Fox spew is patently ridiculous.

      Increasing spending within China directly increases the domestic market to keep all the Chinese production going while the rest of the world economies go into seizure once again.  The resulting strength overall means that they will keep up the same economic levels and accumulation of money while western economies shrink, making Chinese purchases of western assets cheaper for them, and making it easier to move into the post colonial spheres of interest that they are quietly but certainly gaining  -  and to the advantage of those areas in the main.

      And the home consumer market has enough room for expansion to last another twenty years without any change of this policy.

      And the spending on doemstic issues is steadily bringing the economic situation up into line with those 'bubble' house prices - rather than the western model where the base economy is shrinking and unable to sustain the occasional little bubble that expands and bursts so frequently..

        I don't base my opinions on any one source. Here's one ref. for the Chinese "public security" part of the budget. In part...

        "BEIJING (Reuters) - China's spending on police and domestic surveillance will hit new heights this year, with "public security" outlays unveiled on Saturday outstripping the defense budget for the first time as Beijing cracks down on protest calls."

        They will spend more on internal security than on the military.

    A Forbes article on China's real estate bubble, etc.

    Forbes Magazine dated February 28, 2011

    Prepare for a worldwide recession.
       
    "...Regardless of China's long-term future, it's now in the stop phase of its stop-go economic policy, and a hard landing is likely.

    As late as 2007 most believed that China and other Asian lands would decouple from U.S. consumers. They could grow independently even if Americans retrenched and stopped buying the exports that had traditionally driven Asian growth.

    The 2008-09 U.S. consumer cutbacks disproved that theory, so China implemented a $585 billion stimulus plan in 2009. It was twice the size, in relation to China's economy, of the American fiscal stimulus that same year.

    The results were quick and spectacular. China's GDP growth leaped from a recessionary 6% in the first quarter of 2009 to 12% four quarters later. But its exuberant bank lending spawned a property bubble and a spike in CPI inflation from negative territory in 2009 to 5.1% last November. Politically sensitive food prices rose 10%. China then slammed on the brakes..."

    What are you guys even arguing about??

    Mostly blacks in our jail system? Do some research on that before you go and completely slander them, I like to consider us all Americans, so don't ever single them out. I have seen black people get DWBs(driving while black), I have seen them get busted just standing there next to white people fighting.

    Many of these black people are in jail for drugs(mainly marijuana and probably cocaine). Both of which should not put you in jail, let alone 25+ years. And I'm not talking about dealers.

    You are right in that the news tells so many lies it will make your head spin. That happens in China just as much. What you are presenting and basing as fact, really has no merit either.

    The question on this forum is, is China's system right for a 1 world Gov't. My answer would be no, there needs to be a lot of changes, but we certainly can learn a lot from China, as well as the US.. Two great nations who have done great, but will eventually end as their systems are not perfect.

    Perfect or near perfect will be when the people run almost everything. And the Gov't does little to nothing. We will be more than capable to live without a gov't, but I am sure we will still have some type. It is really interesting to see what is going to happen, because right now you can only speculate. That is, unless you want to change the world yourself, which is possible.

      You are quite right in many respects here - except that if you look it up you will find that (as a percentage of the population) there are far more black folk in prison than any other colour. This is a reflection on the horrendous Human Rights situation within America, and contributes to America having the highest number of people in prison per capita than any other country.  America also has a world education rating about equivalent to some third world countries - pretty much a crime in the wealthiest nation.

        What black people being in jail have to do with this thread is beyond me.... Not to mention many of these black kids grow up with little help and no direction.

        ONCE AGAIN. You are saying something that is not only wrong, but completely unnecessary. THEY ARE AMERICANS, and the ones you are referring to, they are lower class citizens. Lower class citizens, I'll bet, no matter what race, will have a higher rate for people in jail.

        How many white people commit crime and get away with it. How many Madoffs and scumbags are out there still ripping people off. A MUCH, MUCH bigger deal than crime due to neglect.

        I want you to know that you have no idea about black people or apparently about America and their jail system, might want to stop talking about it. ME? I went to school 60% black, and have had many black friends. In the past 2 years I have heard of two kids I knew from school getting killed gang banging. This was their choice, not our Gov'ts.. I am sure that is the case for MANY, MANY of the situations you are trying to use in your case.

    Don't forget that China is still a COMMUNIST country. That means that it is a one big well sealed prison with well functioned government and masses of brainwashed submissive people who are so used to hard work for nothing, so scared to be wrong (for the reason) that you cannot expect any protest there. It cannot be in any way an example for anybody in his right mind! Slavery system was very efficient economically in America if you remember but it could not last long. Hopefully China will have some changes too in future. Right now just a random example: How would you like it, if you wanted to have a child, and government would say, "no way, you already have one, it's enough for you. You are pregnant? What kind if a citizen you are? Go and have an abortion right away or we will fine you, let's say $500,000.00 for your criminal act!" it's just a very tiny example, I do not even want to go into more details of how everything works and in what kind of conditions people live and work, about system of submission, shame and punishment in society, schools, etc. It's a sad thing that some of you do not realise that. You see just the end result, shining face of a troubled system. Hitler had a big economical success in his country in 1930ies too.  I don't need that kind of a system, government. I lived in a USSR, remember? This type of a system contains more lies and corruption, and brutal force than anything in the world.

      The one child policy has been well discussed elsewhere in these forums many times - most people here both agree with the policy in principal and want more kids, two generally.  Without the policy China would now be more overburdened than it is at present with numbers of people, making it harder to engineer the fastest economic ever - making other improvements impossible like the free schooling for all kids in the last couple of years.  These things are  all a matter of balance - and the personal 'want' of people to have more kids, and the national need to get out of the feudal age.
