is that a joke ? These pictures are taken from the worst empire of China of all time. It's the most corrupted Empire ever in Chinese history. Probably same or even worse than CCP.

True but whether people like it or not, it's fact. 1000 years ago China and Roman were the biggest empires. Then fall of Roman empires happened followed by China. Other Europeans were still barbarian at that time. 1000 years later which is now, Roman empire or country no longer exist while China finally has the ability to gain back their throne.

What I'm saying is 1000 years ago, people in China and Roman empires were actually the civilized ones. But basically, Asia back in the days was civilized but then the Fall of Empires happened and everything changed.

The fact remains are Asia was the place of civilization together with Roman empires.

Then maybe 10000 years ago, Africa was actually the civilized area.

So yes, you can't actually group all humans in general because civilization stage happened not just once but by stages. Whether the cycle would repeat is something we will have to wait and see.

I was not even talking about how uncivilized people were 100 years ago. I was trying to say that living conditions back then was terrible as compared to us now. Our modern lives are better than the lives of emperors and kings of the olden days.

I am sorry about this. I didn't know you weren't talking about it since I saw you mentioned it was ulu, and that our lives wouldn't be so much different from animals so I automatically think you meant the barbarian life.

But yes you are right. While emperors and kings did protected their people, most of the emperors and kings certainly didn't. smile.gif

during few hundreds years ago, upper class society have come out a very sicked culture, that all women should bind their feet while young, and never let it grow. so it show to other people these women will never able to walk fast (they will forever have a foot of small child) and show off that they do not need to work.

very soon this culture spread to everyone, because all girls want to be in the upper class society right? foot binding is a very inhuman and painful, some Qing dynasty emperors actually try to stop it but failed, because all women just want to be pretty and to pleasure the men (all men in that era likes binded foot). Women are nothing more than a sex tool, as long as able to survive, they really don't mind to torture their own foot, and tell everyone they are happy about it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_binding

So you see, China do have a very dark taliban history b4. Whenever I see some other cultures going thru a dark age and accuse Chinese do not understand the struggle of women, I just give them a smile. tongue.gif

Women are nothing more than a sex tool, as long as able to survive, they really don't mind to torture their own foot, and tell everyone they are happy about it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_binding

So you see, China do have a very dark taliban history b4. Whenever I see some other cultures going thru a dark age and accuse Chinese do not understand the struggle of women, I just give them a smile. tongue.gif

You sure about that? I am sure they still prefer the very dark taliban period than commie period. THEY referring to non-PRC citizens.

It's good to see that Chinese have come a long way to liberalise the women and outlaw foot binding and polygamy.

Those are Qing dynasty (the last dynasty) emperor's women.

Qing dynasty has a very strict palace rule ... that the emperor's wife (and concubine) must not be beautiful or sexy.

This rule is to prevent the emperor from fall in love with them, and most importantly, is to prevent queen (or concubine) to be influential (because nobody want to listen to a fugly woman right?)

China dynasty always have a very serious problem with queen, that the queen always trying to put her or her relatives in the emperor's crown. So the Qing dynasty learn from history and forbid any beautiful women to become the queen.

But is it success? Of course not very, because all men are hamsap (especially you are a powerful emperor), some will marry a beautiful concubine (and causing a fxcking big chaos, google CiXi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Dowager_Cixi). And some emperor will visit brothel to find pretty girls brows.gif

Why is it all emperor very sked queen to become empress? Because China dynasty tradition is to let a group of young women fight among each other to become the queen, the winner of course will have a very good DNA. But the thing is ... if you only know how to fight since young, basically it means you are someone who is quite poor in general knowledge and has a very wicked characteristic. This kind a person is actually very dangerous if you let them rule a kingdom.

FOUR beauties of ancient china

QUOTE
Xi Shi (c. 7th to 6th century BC, Spring and Autumn Period), said to be so entrancingly beautiful that fish would forget how to swim and sink away from the surface when she walks by.

Wang Zhaojun (c. 1st century BC, Western Han Dynasty), said to be so beautiful that her appearance would entice birds in flight to fall from the sky.

Diaochan (c. 3rd century, Late Eastern Han/Three Kingdoms period), said to be so luminously lovely that the moon itself would shy away in embarrassment when compared to her face.

Yang Guifei (719–756, Tang Dynasty), said to have a face that puts all flowers to shame.

true,lots of them still taliban till 1920-30s

parents do not see the need to send daughters to schools or higher education,my grandma was a victim of it. Educated until primary school, then the rest have to grind it out herself,while her brothers all graduated properly from high schools etc. In the end, she was still smarter and better off than the rest of the siblings.

Maybe equality of treatment had caused many countries to suffer very low fertility rate. Or else if women have lower education, most of them would end up as housewives. Don't know if that is good or not for society as a whole if women stick to their traditional roles.

If you can find pictures of everyday life in malaya during those period, I bet it would be even worse. BTW, most of the pictures are taken during the turbulent time in the late Qing China, where poverty, war, starvations are rampant, and the country was facing invasion by foreign forces (German, Austro-Hungarian, French, British, American, Japanese, Russian, Italian).

didn't really succeed. 10 years of brainwashing propaganda, after that stop. if brainwash further and burn every single record, maybe will succeed.
but still i agree with u. already considered in bad shape. china nowadays look very foreign. but the era u see in photo isn't any better. it's one of the most corrupted time in china.

Yoshiko Kawashima or Aisin Gioro Xianyu (川島芳子/金璧輝/ 愛新覺羅·顯玗, 24 May 1907 – 25 March 1948) was a Manchu princess brought up in Japan, who served as a spy in the service of the Japanese Kwantung Army and Manchukuo during the Second World War. In 1948, Kawashima was tried as a traitor (Hanjian) by the Nationalist Government under her Chinese name (Jin Bihui). She was executed by a shot into the back of her head.

Looks like Taiping Rebellion army. They cut their pigtails and let their hair grow long. That's why the wear turban like Singh.

The late 19th and early 20th century are very bad time for China. That's why a lot of Chinese especially those in the South went overseas to look for work. Well, if it did not happened, our great grandfather & grandmother would not have migrated to Malaysia.

However, throughout history of China bad times always happen when a Dynasty is near its end. I think the Warring States, 3 Kingdoms or Mongol invasion era could be worst. We just do not get to see pictures of how bad it became.

In my opinion, if those modern Chinese still practise or have emotional attachment to Chinese culture (as simple as CNY and noble values like filial piety), then they shouldn't be regarded as "forgotting their ancestors' root".

In the case of language, I don't think that matters that much, but if you are referring to the issue of Mandarin and Chinese dialects (since you said Singapore, so I presume that biggrin.gif ). I commented on this before.
QUOTE(leetan33 @ Jun 30 2014, 01:16 AM)
No matter which Chinese dialect/language you are speaking, you will still be reading the same script. Even when Hong Kongers speak Cantonese, they will still have to write formally in its Mandarin form during the exams. Yes, they have colloquial written Cantonese (我唔知你做緊咩), but it's not acceptable in formal occasions. Hong Kongers can still read Chinese and understand what their Mainlanders counterparts are writing despite the (possible) language barrier.
*
Nevertheless, as an Chinese-educated man, I recognised the importance of our actual mother tongue (Hokkien, Hakka, Cantonese, Teochew etc). I feel that this is something we should preserve, at least at the speaking level. I don't see a problem of learning Mandarin formally and "actual mother tongue" informally as both complement each other.

To sum it up,
As a Malaysian, I have the responsibility to master Malay because I'm holding a Malaysian citizenship.
As an ethnic Chinese (Overseas), I have the responsibility to learn how to write Chinese properly (through Mandarin, since HK is also using this method even though they speak Cantonese and written Chinese is highly standardised irrespective of dialects) and acquire my communicative sub-ethnic "actual mother tongue".
As a global citizen, I have the responsibility to master English to survive in this competitive world.

Strongly disagree. Ethnicity is fluid. Ethnicity is like water. And evolution is real.

Your ancestors probably weren't a Chinese some 1000 years ago...
