Did China offer aid to the USA when we experienced disasters from floods and hurricanes? Do they offer aid to anyone that may need it?
No, they did not.
Fuck 'em, I say. If they want to live in 50 square foot apartments, good for them. If they don't, then they can do something about it themselves, starting with their government.
Once again, fuck 'em.
you're a star bro !!
As for the living conditions, humans adapt to what the situation is. There are better ways to live but there are also worse than what I'm seeing there.
Maybe the biggest problem and sympathy I have for the people of China is the way pollution is getting out of control, there. The govt only cares about economic production, not the mercury vapors and other toxic vapors that the people have to deal with in the industrial zones. It's getting out of control and more and more people are protesting, even at the risk of being abused, imprisoned or exterminated. For many it's either protest or watch the rest of your family get sick before your eyes...
Other than that, I'll be honest - it looks a tad romantic.
China is well on its way to taking over North America, if no where else. British Columbia, a bastion of British standards, is overrun with Chinese and East Indians, neither of whom wish to live in each others neighbourhoods. A lot of whites have fled. They should have stood their ground.
Population control failed in China, although the government tried their best to put a halt to large families. Huge numbers of people = huge problems such as overcrowding, pollution, disease and filth. Canada and the U.S. will look like this in a few years.
Chinese people "enjoy" living like this. Well, maybe not like this. They will save all the money they earn eating shit and living in cans to buy an iPhone 5 (and I'm not fucking kidding).
I live here and I've seen the same conditions in many houses. People without studies usually live like that.
Besides, you have to understand these places (unless we're talking about HongKong) are not their real homes. In China, the company rent an apartment for the workers (these kind of apartments). I live in a quite normal apartment in Tianjin in the 24th floor and I know there are 20 people living in the same kind of apartment on the 20th floor, all of them low level workers.
Again. They're used to this. They can bear it.
And if you go to HongKong, unless you have a lot of money or you are an expat, chances are you're going to live in a box like these.
So, no big deal here.
But if you are trying to say this is like some kind of poverty.. well.. come on... my dorm room was about the same...
