What kind of Mongolian rock? Are you talking about the HU?
Yes, there is also a band from Inner Mongolia, China: Nine Treasures。
Whats your favorite of the Three Kingdoms, Wei, Wu, or Shu?
Traditionally, the kingdom of Shu was very popular because of Zhuge Liang, Liu Bei, Zhao Zilong and others. However, I prefer the state of Wei and appreciate Cao Cao. Unfortunately, the real winner in the Three Kingdoms period was the Sima family。

Well, your textbooks aren't wrong on the United States shilling hegemony throughout the Cold War, but the western sphere calls this "imperialism" on account of our relationship with Japan and our presence in the Middle East. But it's dying out in recent years on account of Europe being self sufficient and maintaining their own countries as opposed to them actually taking a side in foreign affairs.

And the American Civil War was caused by several factors. Although capitalism was one of them, it was mostly an divide on industrialisation, the morality of owning slaves, and regional pride. But nearly everything else you described is more or less correct, from a certain viewpoint.

So, does the government provides any incentives for joining the military? Here in the US, if you made a certain grade within the Boy Scouts of America (basically an wilderness training program for kids) you can join the military as an Private First Class or Lance Corporal, depending on the branch. Plus, there's hazard pay for certain jobs, a pension for serving a certain amount of time, and funding for college so you can become a commissioned officer.
There will be some good treatment for joining the army. Generally speaking, as long as the political test and physical test are qualified, you can only take part in it from the lowest level of volunteer soldiers (commonly known as big head soldiers). If you graduate from military academies and other places, you will have a higher rank and treatment。
The law nominally stipulates that every adult male is required to perform military service. However, due to the large population, they usually only need to have a registration and physical fitness test, and will not directly enter the military training. However, in China's junior high schools, high schools and universities, freshmen will carry out military training from about a week to about a month (only amateur exercise, not formal)。

I've been wondering, exactly what kind of content can you see through the Great Firewall of China without resorting to covert means? Aside from this site and government-approved propaganda? For instance, I've heard that Wikipedia is blocked for showing the truth about your country.

To be precise, it may be that in addition to sensitive political content, common twitter, Wikipedia, Facebook, youtube, instagram, including reddit and some Japanese websites are blocked in China. Of course, pornographic websites such as pornhub are also prohibited in China. In addition, there are some gun data and some religions banned in China。
In China's search engine "Baidu", if you type out the four numbers of "8964", it will show that no results have been found. Of course, there are many political sensitive words that can not be found, not only can't be found, but also can't be mentioned in social software and online game conversations in China, even in avatars and user names。

I just now found this thread. I'm bummed I didn't notice it earlier.

You are very gracious for answering all of the questions about the government despite telling us to not ask questions about the government. :)

Do you do much cooking? Can you share a recipe or two we might like?

Hell yeah my man. Do you also listen to Hanggai? They are also from Inner Mongolia.

This is the true beauty of the internet, getting to hold an anonymous discussion on mongolian rock bands.

What do you think about Chinese movies compared to American or Japanese? Any movies you'd recommend?

Please send me recipes for Kung Pao Chicken and General Tso’s chicken. The Chinese restaurant next to my workplace is draining my bank account.

That stuff is delicious.

It seems that it is difficult to avoid such a problem. I can only describe it as objectively as possible without using sensitive words.I don't cook. The most famous dish in Chongqing is hotpot, but this can only be eaten in restaurants and it's very spicy. More common and simple Chinese food, I would like to have "tomato scrambled eggs", "egg fried rice", "miscellaneous sauce noodles", etc., very simple. If you want a better dish, follow "Chef Wang" on YouTube。

Yes, I've heard their songs.

I think it's very bad on the whole. There are few high-quality films and a lot of pure commercial works. It has something to do with the domestic audit system。Some classic old movies may be good, such as Stephen Chow's。

Sorry, I don't know how to cook. Besides, Tso’s chicken is not famous in China. It's a unique Chinese dish in the United States. If you want to learn how to do it, I think there are a lot of tutorial videos on YouTube。

Of course, I have envious feelings and hope that it can be realized in our country one day。
Do you have any conspiracy theorists, over there? Granted, they'll be arrested. But the biggest one in Texas is entertaining, at times.

Of course, there are. The most common ones are that the new coronavirus is a biological weapon made in the United States; 911 and the moon landing are dramas written and directed by the United States; and some people believe that the Chinese people do not come from Africa, but have their own evolutionary route。

What are some stereotypes you have of people from each region of China? Not just asking about Xinjiang or ethnic stereotypes either, please include stereotypes about people from Anhui, Hubei, Hunan, Fujian, etc.

You’ve mentioned school earlier in the thread what is the curriculum like in China? Obviously things like Maths and Science but I’ve heard of schools teaching Confucianism in stead of the core subjects is that becoming more common under the Xi administration?

Well, over here; it's "the Chinese invented Covid," the moon landings were an Russian hoax, and 9/11 is...an American conspiracy headed by the National Security Agency. Kind of weird how it manages to be the same talking points, but it's blaming it on the enemy.

So, do you have any questions that you'd like to ask us?

Wait, what nations are you talking about? I'd like to try living in one some day.

and some people believe that the Chinese people do not come from Africa, but have their own evolutionary route。
If that were true, it would mean that Chinese people and other humans are of different species, right? So Chinese people couldn't have children with non-Chinese people? What a ridiculous and easily-debunkable idea. But, of course, many dumb white people also don't like the idea that their ancestors were African…

I hadn't heard about the moon landings being a Russian hoax, but an American/NASA hoax, sure. Of course, some of the people who believe that also believe that the Earth is a disc with a dome over it with the sun and moon whirling around above and that all space travel is fake…

How is public education (elementary, middle, high school) in China? What classes do you take and to what level (in, say, math) do you go to?

How are Chinese internet memes / internet culture in general (besides people getting nationalistically assmad)? How similar is it to American/western internet?

Will your government punish you for not using a Meiling avatar like a true patriot?

1._ Is mental disability considered a taboo in China?
2._ What kind of measures do families take to help their mentally disabled relatives? What about the cases of autistic people?
3._ Is there any website where chinese people talk about local/foreign lolcows, even if in a discreet way?

How religious are people in China? I know a lot of people will practice folk religion but don't call themself religious, and that the government only has a little tolerance for organized religions like Christianity. Are there underground religious groups or a lot of people who practice a religion in secret?

Thanks for answering all of these questions, by the way. It really is impossible to have an open conversation about these things with most Chinese people and so most of the people who will talk about it are foreigners who lived there.

I haven't read this thread because I'm a chad. But do you live in an apartment? If so, did your stove have a ton of grease on it. From what I know about living in Chinese apartments no one fucking cleans the grease off of stoves. Its so annoying.
