Are citizens "ALWAYS" good?
Ja, I love reading those ancient passages and seeking inspiration from it. But I feel so sad that it has been hijacked to cover dirty things.

sorry, I think ,I have not made my point clear. I fully understand what the passage say. what I want to say is that what the govt is doing may seemingly be in accordance with the theory of the passage. In fact, they just try making everyone away from knowing what they are doing----edging out everyone and collecting weath alone. for example, "not to showing the people what is likely to excite their desires is seen to be a way to keep their minds from disorder." so that the goverment can indulge themselves in the desire. "The sage, in the exercise of his government, empties the minds of the people, weakens their will." so that no one would pose a threat to their dictatorship. Passages like this are often used as cover by the govt. because these passages provide plausible legitimacy making people, who are deprived of many things still believe in the govt, overall, they just make every citizen becoming slave who only work not complain. hope this time I made myself clear. : - )

Today's china is no longer what you read in Tao Te Ching. 95%(even more) of chinese can not read ancient chinese article. moreover most chinese just don't care about any moral code or principle. the theory of Tao Te Ching is only one of many theories, And rule by Tao Te Ching is and was always a good wish, a hypothetical theory and most importantly a cover for the reality, which ruled by Han Feizi's theory . the average chinese's approach to internet is no different than that in the west.The only difference is the attitude of the goverment, here in china goverment's priority-goal is always keeping everything in control and leaving no place for independence. the goverment sensor lots of content of internet for political reasons far far far far more than any other reasons, say, protecting children.

I totally agree with you on that ,those weird law. I have seen the video of a man beaten up on his bottom by the whip. It is extremely horrible. I don't get it. because I don't know so much about its history. I am waiting for others' comments.

If it is out of the consent of the majority of its citizens, I think it is legitimate. but if it is out of only the will and the moral compass of the goverment, it seems too arbitrary.

I mean "protecting citizens from the public threat, or immorality" is a good wish ,but may not works well in daily practice. Because the boundary is extremely blured, even sometimes . For instance, homosexuality ,is it moral or immoral? who have the right to define that? Moreover it could be used as cover to do dirty things. what the goverment ought to do,I think, is to make sure everyone play by law and should not get involved in a micro level.

Pal, I just want to offer a sense of what's really happening in china. A lot of content of the internet, I mean a uncountable number, have been censored in the name of "protecting citizens from the public threat, or immorality".

school was invented about 100 years ago. Should it be re-Invented again?
In this information age, I insist that maybe we should be aware of that the information provided by WEB is not the same kind of information by teachers. the information coming from WEB is non-emotional,with no-order. in short,they are pure and raw information. however, the information delivered by an actual teacher is often coming along with wisdom. wisdom is indeed ineffable , thus cannot be grasped by merely browsing the internet. Admittedly lots of today's schools are disappointments. not so much teachers have wisdom,at least in china. People may come up with new ideas of how to coordinate resources, new ideas of education system. But invariablely the imortance of the wisdom which is exclusivly owned by an actual teacher is unreplaceable

中國,百姓,統治,立場
"為何中國的老百姓在社會的底層,卻老是站在統治階級的立場上說話?" 這個才是正題,對吧? 我的观点很簡單:他們之所以如此,並且是發自肺腑在飲水思源,很大程度上是因為他們被欺騙了。 我說玩了,謝謝。
