After watching this fascinating and revealing video, I gained a new respect for the ingenuity and strength of the Chinese and looked for more information. This is some of what I found:

Chinese history goes back for more than 4,000 years.

Only 168 years ago Washington crossed the Delaware

364 years ago van Riebeeck discovered South Africa

452 years ago Columbus discovered America

It’s 1,500 years since the fall of the Roman Empire

It’s 2,000 years since the birth of Christ

It’s 3,400 years since Moses received the Ten Commandments

It’s 3,700 years since the pyramids were built

But more than 4,000 years ago the Chinese Empire was already in existence and so was the Chinese civilization of art and learning. The longest Chinese river is the Yangtze, which is over 3,000 miles long.

China has over 1.38 billion people. It has the world’s largest standing army. 100 million Chinese people live on less than $1 per day. China is the world’s largest exporter and the second largest importer of goods. Over 35 million Chinese people still live in caves. Nearly 700 million Chinese people drink contaminated water.

China joined its five time zones into a single one. 78% of software installed in China in 2010 was pirated. Every year in China, about a million girl fetuses are aborted and tens of thousands of girl babies are abandoned in China because of the country’s one child policy. China’s national sport is table tennis. The PlayStation is illegal in China.

If Walmart was a country, it would be China’s largest export market. By 2020, China could have between 30 million and 40 million men who cannot find wives (not enough women.) A skyscraper is built in China every five days. The word “Censorship” is censored in China. More people go to church on Sunday in China than in the whole of Europe. 71% of the people in China measure success by the things they own, making it the world’s most materialistic society. Every year, nearly 4 million cats are eaten as a delicacy in China.

In 1973, China proposed to give 10 million Chinese women to the US to boost the US population. Company executives in China can be sentenced to death for committing fraud. China used more cement in 3 years (2011 – 2013) than the US used in the entire 20th century. Half of the world’s pigs live in China. The groundwater of 90% of Chinese cities is polluted. Rich people in China hire body doubles to serve their prison sentence.

China has 4 megacities of over 10 million people, the most of any country. China overtook the US as the world’s largest economy in 2014. Just 7% of people in China are religious, making it the world’s least religious country. China has mobile “Execution Vans” to enforce the death penalty without moving to a proper execution ground. In China, there is an “Elderly Rights” law which makes it illegal for anyone who has parents over 60 not to visit them regularly. Human trafficking is punished with the death penalty in China.

Truly an amazing country, and not one to be trifled with by bumbling Western puppet political leaders.
