BREAKING:China's parliament abolishes presidential term limit


This was expected. When Xi jin pin’s thoughts were gazzeted this was the next step. Pragmatism… Societies are different. Otherwise China is ripe for a fragmantation in case of “democracy”.

Na watu wana sumbua Museveni hapa

China and African states in the former days are quite similar. Party-state politics.

Western style democracy is not embedded into Chinese culture, they are not prepared to walk the western talk and abandon their ways. They choose and pick what suits them, this time they have reverted back to their ways. China made a comeback and developed quickly perhaps because they were still rooted in there Confucius thinking.

In Africa we totally up-rooted our culture, especially the moral aspect.

China played by its own rules. That is why I am amazed when Africa seeks an awakening on neoliberal policies.

How are parliamentarians elected in china

They are called deputies and they do not have a full time job. They are only paid when the communist party meets.

Kindly interpret for me this quote by Confucius

Which former days? China has been like that for all time it has been known. It has been a dictatorship.

I love China because they do whatever they want to do with their country. Idlers such as Omtatah would have been forced into exile decades ago. I for one [COLOR=rgb(41, 105, 176)]do not believe in term-limits. I believe in [COLOR=rgb(226, 80, 65)]free and fair elections and that is all that should matter.

Democracy cant work in a country of 2 billion people. It just can’t. No argument can create a scenario for the success of such a possibility. The only title they can get by trying democracy is “The largest democracy on earth” and nothing more.

You have to admire the Chinese…they do what they want and work for it. Africa is just fucked.

The day Africans become self sufficient. Throw away the begging bowl and implement systems, institutions that work for them and stop slaughtering each other because of politicians, then and only then can they show the west and the world the middle finger. Heck, even have Presidents for life and no one will question.

I am no expert on Confucius, however, Teachers, Sages, Prophets, Saints of Christendom have spoken in one form or another about the same, and teachings of Christ are also focused on the same.

The Superior man is one who has mastered himself (self-control), the lesser man is one who has not. The former gets from within revelations which the lower man cannot access, has gained the insight into wisdom and knowledge.

There are these non- accidental phenomena’s in our world, driven into communities and alien to the nature of the societies, poverty, corruption, hate, excess use of alcohol, drugs, porn and others; lower the condition of society.
When man gains masterly and reign over the self, how can others master over them?

Confucius further stated; “The object of the superior man is truth. The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell”

While Gautama Buddha said;
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
“Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked by goodness; conquer the stingy by generosity, and the liar by speaking the truth. [Verse 223]”

So some people are thinking about how to implement 1000 years of uthamakistan. hehe its impossible. We are not china, we are not chinese, a your dream is certainly not valid.

Comprehension issues, I said African countries of former days.

Actually no. Much earlier probably 12th and 13th century they were liberal but they later feared the influence that was being brought about by their traders interacting with the British, French and Spanish traders. The traders came to realize that their leadership wasn’t doing enough to improve their lives and discontent here and there saw the then dynasty initiate protectionism and eventually closed China from the world similar to what Arabs did when they took up Islam in my opinion from a foolish point of view.

china has always been a dictatorship under dynasties.

Not always but for the better part of its existence yes it has been both a totalitarian dictatorship and a benovelent dictatorship.
