I got a bad mood the whole day today. After a long annoying day I was on the way home by bus. When I just sat down, a woman’s voice with a very strong American accent came into my ear. She said loudly to a man, who looked like an Indian: “You won’t believe it if I tell you what I read today! I bought a newspaper at the station and it’s all about China. They spy everything and everywhere… ” She emphasized mysteriously “spy everything and everywhere”. When I just heard “China”, I kept my chin up and was so curious to know what happened to China. However, when I heard “Chinese spy everything and everywhere”, the blood on my face was boiling and my heart was beating so fast, my lips were twitching 3 times. I breathed in a long cold airfor several seconds. At the end I forced myself not to say one word. The woman continued talking”… and no where without spies. The Chinese computer Trojans spy things…” At the very moment, my blood was boiling again and this time stronger, the words I swallowed a several seconds ago were suddenly broken out of my lips, I could not bear it as if I had heard nothing! “That’s not true! It is only one-sided propaganda!” I turned my head to the woman. The woman never dreamed of my sudden reaction like that, she was very surprised and explained with embarrassing smile:” Sorry I don’t know that you are sitting behind me, otherwise I won’t say that.” “There is nothing to do with where I am sitting. What you said is just not true! China spies, doesn’t America do the same thing?! Do you think American is better than any other countries?!” ” I agree that America has also similar problems.” Answered the woman, the Indian looking man added “Oh yes, this problem is very complex, it exists everywhere in the world. It is really complex.” Then the woman changed her topic.
When I got home my heart was still beating badly. By opening today’s newspapers, I noticed that the whole pages are talking about how the Chinese Computer Trojans spy the world economic and military information; Internet magazines are also incredibly reporting the same things that you can not express your astonishment with words, although I got a Master degree, I still can not describe the shock properly. Chinese Trojans spy the computers of the German government! How could they make it happen? Aren’t those departments of the Ministry of the Interior retarded idiots?! They’ve installed lots of video cameras everywhere, even on lanes, they wish they could install cameras in civilians’ houses! Bug in telephone and emails must be kept for at least 6 months. Now most of Chinese students and employees are suspected unfairly as spies……I am just wondering how these departments of the Ministry of the Interior could let the Chinese Trojans get into their computers?!
Opening newspapers, magazines, turning on radios and TVs, you will hear and listen either the dark side of one country, or poverty of another country; one country is destroyed today, and another one would be tomorrow; today people fight for oil, tomorrow they would fight for space… I wish I would not live so long!
Like the old Chinese saying “fame portends trouble for men just as fattening does for pigs” and another one says “a tall tree catches the wind”. Absolutely true! Regardless how and what China does, China is always guilty! Chinese economy is guilty! It is too fast that there is no time for the rest of the world to adapt to Chinese economic development! No doubt, alongside the economic development, China still has many problems and weaknesses; the law is not perfect and the system is not well established. Why not give China more time and help her to overcome shortcoming and to solve problems?!
Couldn’t the world have more love, more harmony, more tolerance and more forbearance?
What has China done to you?!
