Simon, your interview in CBC was too short. Still it’s nice to hear your voice again.
By: Pat on 四月 23, 2008 at 9:26 下午
The show is from 10.00 pm — 10.30 pm. However, Simon only talked 10 seconds.

Who is this woman and…. Victor Who again? Did she know that tea contains, apart from antioxidants and minerals:
For only 10 seconds with you in it, guess I didn’t miss much then.
One thing maybe I am not too comfortable with is that CBC only treats all Chinese Canadians as having knowledge only on China and Chinese-related issues, while people of British descent can talk about…you name it. If CBC always flashes 家豪’s face or voice for a few seconds and the microphone or camera immediately moves away after 家豪 utters out the two words “So China…", shouldn’t we expect Peter Mansbridge to talk only on topics related to Gr8 Britain (since I am not too sure if Britain is really “great" anymore so calling it Great Britain doesn’t really feel right to me) because he was born in Britain?
CBC: Hope it isn’t the acronym for Culturally-Biased Corporation.

Not a lot of people here respect their own Chinese folks, not to even mention the present Chinese government. How can we expect other countries and other countries’ people to respect us – Chinese?

You are right 黑白
If we can not even treat ourselves Chinese fellows with respect, not one else will treat you with respect.

Respect is among fellow country folks, you don’t need your country to respect you. However, if everyone of this country’s folks respect each other, in the end the country will become a good one. In short, you have to start doing this from yourself.

Next time, make sure you order some Dim Sums (probably no chicken feet) and ask CBC to pick up the tab before letting them tape you. Don’t let them take you for granted over a cup of Jasmine tea.

According to what you said, unfortunately, our country will never become a good one. Even if everyone respects each other, there is one exception. He is called “Finch & Vic Park 黑白糞青". He is a black spot of the white paper, the sinner!
BTW, respect can be in countries level. I don’t understand why you can’t get it. For example, no countries respect the crazy threatening authority of North Korea.
You said “you don’t need your country to respect you". This is totally ridiculous. If a country does not respect its own people, how can they respect each other? After all, the government should be driven by its own people (以人為本 i.e. value, quality, vision, justice, righteousness, respect and HUMAN RIGHTS, not the BS by the Chinese government).

Sort out your logic first-
I’ve never mentioned about country respect another country level, it is your own saying.
Why I need to get what you say? I have my individual thinking 🙂
I said “if everyone of this country’s folks respect each other, in the end the country will become a good one." thus “you don’t need your country to respect you" This is simple logic.
However, what you said contradicted yourself “If a country does not respect its own people, how can they respect each other?" I assume the “they" here means the country’s people, right? I don’t know why people cannot respect each other on their own individual thinking? Are your thinking driven by the government? If this is the case, you contradict yourself with- “After all, the government should be driven by its own people" What are you trying to say, sorry I really don’t get it 🙂 hahaha.
Now with your “the government should be driven by its own people". My logic of everyone respect each other applies. As the whole nation have good people respecting each other, how can the government not become good? Remember government is make up of people, and I say everyone that is including the people in the government.

Is this the respect your are looking for?

The Gettysburg Address
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

You wrote “I have my individual thinking " ,小貓小狗,精神錯亂者等等都有其 “individual thinking"喇! 🙂
You wrote: “My logic of everyone respect each other applies. As the whole nation have good people respecting each other, how can the government not become good? Remember government is make up of people, and I say everyone that is including the people in the government." 烏托邦去尋吧,現在還未出現!或者讀讀 " Animal Farm"再說!
加香中- “那麼世界上所有人，可不可能，在這些原則下，互相尊重而共同生活呢？…“實在可能”。" seems to be similar to what I said, only different is I only have a small dream to want Chinese to respect each other as a foundation to build a good government/nation, not all the people in the world. Then you said “黑白思想，大不可能". Is it typo or you contradicted your logic?
見龍在田, thanks a lot for bringing me to be back to the real world. Yea, Martin Luther King Jr. died for dreaming too much or reading too much Animal Farm 🙂
“We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead…
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream…
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight…"
“as a foundation to build a good government/nation" 中國或加拿大?

Schizophrenia (pronounced /ˌskɪtsəˈfriːniə/), from the Greek roots schizein (σχίζειν, “to split") and phrēn, phren- (φρήν, φρεν-, “mind"), is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a mental illness characterized by impairments in the perception or expression of reality, most commonly manifesting as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions or disorganized speech and thinking in the context of significant social or occupational dysfunction. Onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with approximately 0.4–0.6% of the population affected. Diagnosis is based on the patient’s self-reported experiences and observed behavior. No laboratory test for schizophrenia currently exists.
Symptoms manifested in some comments here.

Absolutely, and besides, drinking tea only without 點心 => 削胃! 霄九里’s 油淋淋鳳爪 or 牛栢葉 before drinking tea is a good idea!
MLK’s dream still remains a dream. Look at the crime rates everywhere. Look at the need for establishing a “Blacks only" school. Look at the vast majority of the behaviour and reasoning professed as truths by the subject of his “dream", even 40 years after his death. Mind you that China is different because it had been the “centre of the universe" centuries ago and will certainly become the centre (or at least one of the foci in the world) in the future; but is that what we really want: a one-party government whose mandates are to manipulate its people by coercion (e.g. forced abortion), lies (e.g. the aftermath of June 4 massacre), and dictatorship (e.g. absolutely no opposing/alternate voices). Praising and encouraging the Chinese government when it happens to tread on the right path is what every Chinese should do, but, equally importantly, denouncing its wrongdoings should also be every Chinese patriot’s responsibility. However, unconditional siding with China here with a single-edge sword means that one chooses to practise Chinese patriotism in Canada as a Canadian citizen, which is almost like waving an American flag and chanting the American anthem in front of the Tiananmen Square!
Schizophrenia’s Greek root is actually quite misleading because schizophrenics actually don’t have split personality. Once in a while, they hallucinate and immerse in their own world of their own creation by ignoring the real world situation. This kind of disorder can hardly be cured because it is mostly genetic (nature more than nurture). The odds are 1 out of 100 people in the world are diagnosed with Schizophrenia. If one parent has Schizophrenia, the chance increases to 1 out of 10. If both parents have Schizophrenia, the chance is that almost 4 out of 10 people will develop Schizophrenia.

What I tried to say with all the “…respect each other…" is if we do not start from ourselves, how can we have the summation effect or have any expectation on others?
To make a difference, I always ask myself, and want myself to do it first.
Think about folks from both sides (or stuck in the middle, or by-standing) of the camp here have so many arguments, calling names, bad words, disrespect, trying to be on top; not a lot of real suggestion to exercise though. It is not hard to imagine that we have bad governments, as they too are make up of people…
I think blogging here is really not helping anything or each other. I may even caused more arguments. I do learn a lot from here. It is time to move on. All the BEST, folks.
The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away.
