>>华国锋的中国旅行商量<< - Hua Guofang's China Travel Thread Extravaganzoid!!!

 

I had to go back to China for a wedding just recently and as I was there I realised that I'd never really posted any pics from when I used to live there. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Knowing how much you cats lurve yo travel threads I figured I'd do my bit in trying to revive 12OZ with a China Travel Thread. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The first lot of pics are from a 'small town' in central China where the wedding was. The second lot are from Beijing with a few mixed in from a few years back. Then there is Shanghai and lastly a bunch from Hong Kong. Will take a couple of days to go through them all because there are close to 500...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Get yo grime on!!

So then the Illuminati police state has even caught up with China.

When my boy went there years ago, he came back and said that he wanted to move there because of how laid back the cops were there and how little they give a fuck about anything non-major.

Wherever unchained capitalism goes, Fascism follows.

 

My prediction is that it'll even reach you's down under within the next few years.

looking at those street vendor food pics kept reminding me of this....

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1ed_1382996617

recycled sewer cooking oil....

 

Man, I walked past a gutter oil shop every day for 10 days in this little town, it fucking stunk. It was the grimiest of the grime and I so wanted to take a pic but the issue of gutter oil is relatively serious in China (as in it has federal attention) and I didn't want to upset folk by documenting their activities.

.

 

@ DAO - tell your lad not to confuse laziness, low education and corruption for discretion and judgement. Secondly, they also ignore big things as well. If a businessman, foreign or local is taken by force to a hotel and refused his/her freedom because the other party is demanding a payment (usually over a contractual dispute) the cops literally shrug their shoulders and say that it's a civil dispute and doesn't concern them. I have seen this with my own eyes and there are multitudes of news articles that discuss this situation (and how the consulates of the foreign businessmen also agree that it's a business dispute because one dude is not worth damaging diplomatic relations over. I shit you not, it's all public record which you can google).

.

 

Also, don't be so convinced that capitalism is the problem. Corruption was just as rife in China under communism as it is now under "socialism with Chinese characteristics". China is only somewhat capitalist in that you can own your own business and personal property. But there is still very strong govt intervention in to the markets (they determine energy prices, some food prices, etc.) and there is still a maaaaaaasive state owned enterprise/industrial sector that is propped up by the state whilst running big losses. There is also no rule of law there (the Party is above the law, basically) and that means contractual disputes are usually decided in terms of who is the most powerful/connected, not who is in breach of contract. Given these circumstances it is difficult to say that China is anywhere near unbridled capitalism. The market does not rule, contracts mean dick all and the state has ultimate power, as opposed to the constitution/judiciary.

.

 

That means China is essentially a "jungle", rule is by power, nothing else. And whilst that may also be similar to all national realities (capitalist, communist, fascist, monarchist, etc.) the economic and market conditions in China does not allow the country to be called capitalist. Some call it "red capitalism" instead or neo-leninist if you want to be a wanky academic.
