China’s President Xi Jinping is one of the most powerful men in the world, but it hasn’t always been this way. Xi has stared down revolutionary fervor during the Cultural Revolution - and muscled out rivals in an atmosphere of brutal party politics to now become the paramount leader of China’s Communist Party. In this episode, we look at how Xi Jinping went from life among Beijing’s political elite - to living in a cave in remote countryside - to now being China’s most powerful ruler since Mao.

Tibet never was a part of China Historically and culturally and the same applies to Mongolia. The expressions of the people of those countries will remain different from main stream China always. In what manner that manifests in future remains to be seen. Irrespective of the present domination by a foreign race, the true colors of those two regions will only reveal themselves in time, may be beyond the time period of many of us living now.

Why he is redder than red?? What should this video tell us??? The west always speaks of corruption in China. But when he tries to stop this, he is a dictator? What a cheap propaganda. This video is just rubbish.

The enlightenment killed God and the world lives in age of darkness where man is left to find meaning in himself, when he saw himself no better than an animal he turned to the community for some sort of hope in life some sort of meaning and the community in their animistic need for meaning would produce unconscious champions who would lead the community as the community, there is no objective in a world entirely defined by the subjective, all that existed in man to give him meaning was power, power of individuals perhaps or the power of the collective to move forward in what ever way the collective defined forward The cultural case study that is china is truly fascinating it is the production of a world that has no objective

Incompetent politicians make problem bigger while spending time. Please do unification quickly! When is Korea unification ? 2019.7.15 - I am Zhang Fei. (張飛) in Japan ・The missiles that North Korea is hitting in recent years is the same thing that the PRC government is hitting. The People's Republic of China is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, so China must be in a position to stop the missiles hit of its neighbor, North Korea.

System Platform The foundation upon which this new system works is ecclesiastical. Which is not secular but joins together everything that is in society as a whole.Learn understanding in that there is negative but there is positive, increase, expansion and explanation In the direction we could beheading. Governing system, strong within to keep the order of things for one another. Organizations, with a priority of high-quality production and services. Church and Religious with systems respectful understanding. The system does not have division between Democrat and Republican, how ever recognizes that decisions are made either liberally or conservatively. Neither one are seen as superior to the other, but the choice logically made, understanding for the project at hand. Humanities respect, honor, and value of differents are continuously being diminished. We are at the point of forced conformity making it difficult for us to be able to have a fair marketplaces. Causing trade and cultural hostilities with unfair deals being made. Over burnting production from one country and the people within it, by another's countries consumption, even production going to waste. Job markets that are changing with technology posing risks to humanity providing for itself. Unfair wages, no quality time for families, and leisure opportunity not equally distributed amongst Humanity. New projects being started while existing infrastructures fail. Dilapidation in buildings, Inadequate living situations for families, creating desperate times causing crime rate, from desperate times of desperate measures. Religions losing their strong heritage and having less honorable views, unrespectful subcultures to conform into modern systems, leaves us with less of a moral base and foundation for the future. I believe in every religion and that the lineage and heritage of that religion should be passed down with the purest of practices and preachings. Humanities ethnicity and global regions gives us diversity in our religion. That gives us a heritage to know who we came from, for the way to guide us to who we should be. The system is designed to bring out diversity, to display its quality with respect and understanding. The equality in the regulations are basses for sound Community. The people will not be limited, controlled, and oppressed by a system that uses them to be sustained. This is flexible for the location where you live, But also for the whole of humanity to be in agreeance. The decisions of the regulations are not to condemn but for redirecting positive growth. Published consequences and regulations are clear, concise, and simple so the error of the action or activity is easily determined. No longer will the choices that are a detriment, be a burden on all of society. Opening identify those in society that could be a detriment to others and their way of life. Whenever your in a diminished state due to inability or unacceptable decisions, you will not be bound by a system of detrimental consequences however be able to redeem your acceptance within the community or re-establish your abilities of self-worth. The talents of future generations will be stronger in abilities from instincts. Education systems that develop intuition for accomplishing exploration that humanity has never done before. People so confident in their abilities, that they have inspirations that even science fiction couldn't even explain. Knowledge of our physical bodies, our health, and the way we work biologically will enable us to overcome sickness, disease, and defects. Life will have less mental anguish and an increase of cognitive abilities so our quality of health will be more sustainable extending our lifespan decades longer than before. This is what an advancement in humanity would be like if we did away with the systems in place now. What I have been inspired to develop is just that system to have all of this and more. My claim of having everything you want is not far fetched but a logical reality. The way of life you live now is probably not going to seem that different in developed countries, but in areas of the world that are oppressed and less than adequate living conditions this is the prayer they have been asking for. Please do not hide who you are, what you enjoy doing, I want you to have everything, I need you, So you are worth it, I believe in humanity, I blame no one for the events that have taken place. So have no worry, no shame, no guilt, or judgment of yourself or anyone else, just believe in yourself, let me deal with that. If you except then be open minded, ready to learn and excited to be alive right now. I am, I have endered, I am humble, honored, and will not leave you until I know we have made this advancement together. I am the Queen of Humanity, Tracy Estabrooks RECORD Right, Ethical, Community, Opportunity, by Regulations, for Direction.

Ha ha ha ha, not bias at all, not ! Why not make a video of how Trump's American Revolutionary Army 'took over' a British Imperial Airport in 1775 ?
"Revered?" Try feared and despised! "Hundreds of thousand of people lost their lives" ... seriously! Tens of millions, talk about doing a whitewash.

Communism always ends in a lot of death. When a man thinks they are god on earth they attempt to create a world in their own image. In the end dissenters always need to be exterminated. He is the first Communist leader to use algorithms to control behavior in his image. This is why blasphemy is the highest crime in the Christian religion. This is why religion is persecuted in China and all Communist nations of the past, present, and future.

China became better because of the anti corruption campaign, corruption is the surge of Asia nations. India should learn this too, corruption is the only reason why India is not a super power yet.

I beg to differ on not exporting poverty. Chinese development is of such poor quality and impracticality that it has empty new housing equivalent to 7 times as many dwellings as London UK, and 80% of the home buyers in Australian Cities are Chinese, forcing prices to more than triple between 1999 and 2007. And forcing many Australians born in the 80's out of the market. Many were unable to ever marry and have families because not owning a house was a deal breaker in our relationship culture. Australia should have banned immigrants and companies from owning real estate but it was too slow to recognize the problem.

Xi Jinping will be a good president till his death. But the person who comes after him will be a dictator and will ruin everything as he will be having no worries of being thrown out of his presidency.
