Chinese history is so fascinating, and I love it because “Romance of the three Kingdoms” and the game Dynasty Warriors, which makes me admire events of the three kingdoms in the past such as Zhuge Liang’s Longzhong Plan,Empty Fort strategy, Sima Yi’s plot to take over the Imperial court, Zhang Liao’s defense in He Fei which result of his 800 men successfuly expel 100.000 of Sun Quan’s troops.
Stories of Tang dynasty is also quite enjoyable, especially the story of Yang Guifei and the Tang Emperor.
I Love Chinese history so much!
Honestly? Two reasons:
One: I’m tired of these news about the west bashing China like China’s the only country with problems. MANY countries have civil problems and we should either help each other or mind our own damn business. If you’re going to be bias against a country and talk shit about it then look at your own country first.
Two: My ethnicity (Hmong/Miao) actually migrated from China and now resides in southeast asia. Althought my ancestors had beef with the ancient Han chinese people, I’m pretty sure they still love China as much as the Hans do. I actually want to visit China one day and meet the Miao people because we share history together. I want to visit my ancestral homeland since i don’t consider Vietnam or Laos my homeland. (Sometimes I joke with my friends about it, calling it the Motherland.)
It would be kinda cool if the PRC decides to do a program where they let the Chinese diaspora and even the Hmong diaspora visit or even live in the motherland, like how many african countries open their arms for the african americans of slave descents. But considering the population problem in China, I don’t think they’ll do anything like that. Would be nice though, but it’s just a thought I had.
Love for the motherland!
Sincerely, just some Hmong guy.
