    This conversation is being moved from the HK protest thread.

    Jimmy,
    You obviously spent effort in posting and deserve a reply. Can you summarize the main points that you wish to make as a lot of what you said is background information before I make specific comments.
    The Chinese philosophical idea of "State" to my knowledge and the consequent "mandate from heaven" was promoted by Moh-Tzu way before even Qin Shi Huang founded the Qin dynasty.

    I recently discoverd Li Ziqi (李子柒) on youtube. Her videos bring to life many things that now only exist in the memories of the Chinese people. Here are some of my favorites:

    SCMP just posted a video about her. Lol, SCMP doesn't even have a fraction of her follower count in YouTube. She's practically a YouTube franchise on her own.



    Started watching her. Her videos seems so relaxing so chilling out.

    One of her most popular videos, she's going IKEA on bamboo.

    Yes I watch her video and she should be applauded for trying to bring back tradition of family love, good food and self sufficiently, appreciation of craft, beauty and perfection I am glad that there is still young people in China who honor and respect their tradition Here she talk about herself and why her vlog is so popular. I guess a lot of people in China are now longing for root,belonging and simpler form of life instead rat race. But unfortunately the interviewer is a Hongkie who does not appreciate what she does


    Craft, artisan and perfection is not Japanese monopoly China and Chinese does value and exhibit those characteristic as well but recent past submerge those natural instinct. Hopefully it will resurface again This episode embody those traits. I like her artistic touch in her video beautiful

    I saw another video from that interviewer, and at the end of the video, she was making fun of Li Ziqi for going on and on about different kinds of bamboo. Very disrespectful and condescending.

    One of the aspects I am most uncomfortable with when I visit China is the importance everyone places on displays of material wealth. However, the recent popularity of Li Ziqi shows that Chinese people are now looking for something more. They are starting to place more value on leisure time, freedom from stressful demands, and living a simple life.

    May I take this opportunity of wishing all my Chinese friends in this chat group in advance “A Happy, Prosperous & Peaceful Chinese New Year”. In the Chinese tradition of my dear wife’s family, & as advised by my late & wonderful Mother in Law, the Chinese Teochew (Chouzhou) Dialect CNY greeting is “Sin Chia Joo Ee”.
