The government has control over the benefits, therefore Weiwei is trying to emphasize that the chinese receive the consequences. Rather than the government, the people of China have to deal with the pain, lies, and being controlled. Due to ideological control from the chinese revolution, people are nearly brainwashed to agree with the government. Weiwei is aware of it and writes in order to rebel against his culture, debunking them of their
In China Mahayana Buddhism was greatly excepted by people who didn’t have a lot of stuff or people who wanted to reach nirvana but was greatly hated by others no only because it went against everything Confucianism believed in but also since it wasn 't a native religion. However, some people didn’t care if the two religions co-existed or blended together. Mahayana Buddhism in China was profoundly accepted by the lower class people who didn’t have much and liked the idea of giving up materialistic things to reach nirvana.

Like every Chinese explorer, he dreamed of trying to get to Gold Mountain. The reason why so many Chinese people at this time came here to the United States was because of the enormous amount of gold that it carried. However, Tang Ao unfortunately runs into the Land of Women and is taken in as prisoner. I feel that this symbolically foreshadows the injustices and cruelty that the Chinese immigrants had to face in America. First of all, the reason why I think he is from China is because his name sounds like an Asian name, and gold mountain is associated with the Chinese immigrants.
America wanted to civilize them from the issues that is occurring. According to Document 4, “America is trying to show how the Filipinos that America can make their “dreams” come true erasing their problems with freedom, education, and justice.” The Filipinos wanted the independence, making US leader seizing the opportunity to control the Philippines by showing pull factors. United States didn’t really care about the issues going on in the Philippines. Controlling Philippines allows the United States a mid pacific port for trade purists. American wanted to control the Philippines government to get closer to China for trading.
Over time, China has gradually regained the relationship through communication, compromisation, and restored affairs. However, the Tiananmen Square Protest has damaged China’s international image. To the world, it was a shocking to see the government violently suppress freedom and violate the basics of human rights. The US president George Bush said, “he deeply deplored the use of force”, while the UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said she was “shocked and appalled by the shootings” (BBC News). When China attempted to regain its image by hosting the 2000 Olympics game, the International Olympics Committee received multiple complaints on China’s lack of political freedom and human rights.
Moreover, the British could turn the tables and acquire concessions from the Chinese authorities. The British territorial possessions and existing control of India had enabled them to expand their influence in the region. The tea and opium trade performed by the British could be encapsulated as the driving forces of the British Empire in Asia. The trades influenced how the British implemented the rules in India and engaged in business transactions with China in order to generate profits for themselves. Therefore, tea and opium cannot be disaggregated from the British imperial history since the two commodities had practically expanded the empire to its greatest
Moreover, fascism had denied the democratic parliament system, and had only allowed the “elite” to rule over the country. This was similar to absolutism, as absolutism also only allows the “chosen” kings with divine rights to rule. Even though there are some similarities between fascism and absolutism, there are also differences. The main difference is the object of the authority. Absolutism gives all the power to the one and only monarch of the country.
Deng Jiaxian is hero for modern society in that he is patriotic and selfless. In contrast with Deng, Kim Jong-un is a monster because of his selfishness, violence as well as amoral behavior.

In china, however, Mongols acted as superiors to the Chinese, stripping them of any government positions and basically separating themselves from the Chinese. Because of this derision from the Mongols toward the Chinese, Mongols faced rebellion from the Chinese population that was uncontrollable. Eventually in 1368, the Mongol empire was taken over by rebel forces because of the hatred towards Mongol overlords and their unjust ruling.

The Mongols did not trust the Chinese, so they had foreigners come in to govern the people. They took away the traditional Confucian way of government.
