Can't believe I forgot about this thread.

Am I more brilliant for not subscribing to blind, toxic patriotism? I don't know, maybe so. But guess what? Even if that's the case, it doesn't make me feel better about myself at all. In fact, it's fucking depressing
to see people around me react to collective criticism like you just did.

That's the work of more than one generation, and only once young people have woken up to democratic ideals, can that process have any hope of getting started. I'm joining my voice to help them wake up, to feel ashamed and angry. What have you done to challenge the status quo so far?
zerogravital wrote:What good things have you guys done for your country other than just trying to find the most disgusting words to badmouth your Vietnamese fellows (including your friends, parent, brothers, grandparent, and so on) most offensively.
If you're smart, you'd never have written what you just wrote. See abcdefg's response.
zerogravital wrote:So do you like it when someone, especially a Vietnamese, calls you "A Vietnamese rude creature" like she did?.
"former human" is never ruder than the "title" she have labeled Us all Vietnamese as - "rude creatures", why have you highlighted my words, while you should have highlighted her words instead of mine, are you out of your sense?
Did she call you
"a rude Vietnamese creature"?
That's your problem right there. You don't seem to be able to differentiate between what's personal and what's not. She's stating her opinion on how people from Vietnam stack up against people from other countries in terms of mannerism. It's got nothing to do with you on an individual basis. So tell me, why the hell are you attacking her?
I don't have to go on about this. This is not the classroom for Debate 101.

You seem to be getting me wrong. It's not a threat. It's not even a warning. Just a simple statement - "If you continue doing that, this is what I'll do."
I hope we are clear.
"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"

And you do know about the brats resulted from China's 4-2-1 family structure, yes? Please be thankful for democracy, because without it, the problems you see everyday could have been much worse.
