    More than China? Yeah right! At least most Americans don't take our propaganda seriously, where people in China are damn near brainwashed. You ever hear the term "cult of Personality"?

    And Bruce yelling at the top of his lungs "I am a Chinese" and the fact that it is being made to show alongside with the beijing summer games proves it is propaganda. Bruce was never proud of being Chinese. He was more of a Hong Konger, and he was born in San Francisco.

    In the United States at least we can speak out against our gov't, unlike those in China. Hell, how many Chinese equivalents of Michael Moore do you know of? If you want to see true Chinese culture and theater (plays and the like) you have to go to Taiwan, because the Chinese government has an absolute strangle hold on what you can and can not do. If you want pure American theater, do you have to go to Guam? Nope.

    I agree with you on China's suppression, they are pretty tight on controlling their people, they are just below North Korea.

    I disagree on Bruce not being proud to be chinese, he didn't want to be in roles that typecast chinese as weak, chop socky men.

    I have to disagree on the suppression comment. I have travelled extensively there and lived in China and the amount of suppression going on there is no where near what it is in NK.

    Is there suppression. Yes, but not on a grand scale and your seeing it less and less with each passing year. I would probably liken it to selective suppression. If the govt. finds someone or some group that they perceive is stirring up trouble or making them look bad then they will go in and suppress the members of that group. If your group is pretty much not doing anything that involves them or harms the public at large they pretty much ignore you.

    There are times that the groups being suppressed needed to be suppressed, i.e. they are doing something that is harmful to the general populace. This also includes them going after their own govt officials (albeit only when it finally goes public what the bastards were doing)

    Of course their are religious groups that are harrassed and suppressed for really no reason at all. But things are vastly improved now than they were even 10 years.

    Maybe you aren't seeing the suppression because the ninjas are doing it. Don't forget ninjas are from China!

    I have traveled alot to China, and stayed there for quite some time also. People there as u seem to think are not zombies. They do know the difference between propaganda and reality. Ofcourse there are some people who are ignorant but that in this case is the same as in America. How many religious people in America does not praise George Bush "because he is such a good Christian" ? It also seems to be a quite popular American thing to think that Chinese people are brainwashed communists. Even though the Chinese goverment does have a strict policy on "free speech", most people know bull from what is not. You are getting a quite false view on how the Chinese people are.

    Speaking of Michael Moore, even though I admire his criticism, much of what he speaks is pure bullshit. So in a sense that can be seens as antiAmerican propaganda. I agree censorship is bad, but most Chinese avoid censorship in movies and whatnot by buying pirated versions anyway. During my lifetime I've meet far more deluded Americans than I have meet Chinese.

    I admit that the communists have relaxed their control, but I still wouldn't call China the new land of freedom.....they have a pretty long list of human right offenses and its no secret that they are doing this from the public eye.
