 China's Double Standard


Map of China

Looking at the COVID situation in China, I am not surprised to see the Chinese government treats its people like a herd of cattle. Their lives become cheap because their population is too large, and the concept of " the more death, the less mouth to feed" is always in its mind. BUT YOU will be surprised at how the Chinese government treats overseas Chinese. Why do they seem so protective on behalf of these overseas Chinese? There are two reasons:

The first is for propaganda purposes - letting the world know that they care a lot about their people. If there is persecution or unfair treatment of their citizens living in a certain country - they would speak out against the government of that country to protect or defend the rights of overseas Chinese. 

The second is showing its concern towards overseas Chinese will gain their gratitude and loyalty to this regime in particular and Mainland China in general - so that these Chinese can later become useful to them, doing business or spying for them if necessary.

Thus, there are 2 standards of treatment - One for the mainland Chinese and the other for the overseas Chinese.

About Me

My photo
As a Vietnamese American - graduated from college here in the US, I want to spend some time in Vietnam - a country I left when I was very young. Because of the war, I did not have any opportunity to travel much in Vietnam, except Saigon and Vung Tau back and forth during those years. Now is the time for me to learn more about my mother's country to appreciate its beauty, art, and culture.
