What can Chinese learn from the world?
Do you remember the fierce competition between the Confucius
and Avatar? The competition came to the end with the bombing at
the box office of the Confucius. Did it mean that our great man
Confucius was no match for the virtual character Avatar? I think
that was not the confrontation between the Confucius and Avatar, but
between the Chinese filmdom and westerner. Our Chinese movie
industry was much behind the Hollywood’s and our filmmakers
seldom won big prize in the world award ceremonies. So it is quite
necessary for us to learn the advanced film production from others.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. In many other aspects, such as
science, technology, economy, education, and legislation and so on, we
still have a lot to learn from the world. Comparing with the previous,
our country’s status has rise, but it doesn’t represent that we are
more flouring than other countries and we have no examples.
What I want to say is that we must thank our great man Deng
Xiaoping. If it were not for his China reform and open policy, our
country would fall behind the present. A man who is conservative
and isolated with others cannot make great progress. So does a
country. The reform and opening up opened the new page of Chinese
history. Chinese people have the access to expose to the world and the
chance to learn from others’ merit. Actually, we have learned a lot
ranging from the manufacturing, agriculture and medical science to
the aerospace industry. Take the aerospace for example, at first our
country is a nobody in this filed, but after several decades’ learning
from the aviation giant America and Russia, our country has been
way ahead. The Shenzhou Missions, a series of spaceships and
satellites mark the milestone of Chinese astrological development.
Now we are still learning
