 nationalism doesnt work

since china was re-enslaved under capitalism, dengists have been playing the nationalist card. this is in contrast to comunism's internationalist attitude, or worldwide workers unite theory. dengists have used nationialism in a few ways. 1- to unite china against a common enemy, but has been ineffective. theyve used nationalism to turn people against japan, but it really doesnt make sense to hate japan, because japan is not an independent country. japan doesnt act unless given permission by their u。s masters. if you're going to hate someone, hate japan's master, the u。s., but china wouldnt dare to do that. to hate on japan, while worshiping the u.s only tells people that you are a coward. and to direct your people to hate on japan while buying trillions in japanese products (from cars, to cameras) also tells people you are a hypocrite. from this perspective, the leadership looks flawed, and incompetent because it has a inconsistent positions. youre unlikely to gain loyal followers with inconsistent policies.

secondly, using nationalism to integrate hk, and tw. this really doesnt work and hasnt. dengists have been trying this for 40 years straight, and has largely gotten nowhere. culture can't join a country, and there have been may instances proving this. for example, south korea has more in common with japan than it does with north korea. you cant use nationalism to unite korea. likewise, taiwan has more in common with japan than it does with mainland china, eventhough taiwanese, and mainlanders are both chinese, and share a common culture, but that shared culture has not united china. comunist china was able to unify the tibetans, and uigurs, despite large cultural differences between han, tibetan, and uigur, but comunism united them. tibetans were arguably more patriotic than these so called han hongers and taiwanese. so culture shouldnt be a unifying factor. ideology, and maybe social class is key. which is why oddly enough, pakistan has more in common with mainland china than mainland china has with taiwan, or hong kong. even after 20 years of failed dengism, hk still has more in common with south korea, and japan than it does with mainland china, despite having "reunited" with china. besides, people dont look for similarities, they look for differences. when an american goes to britain, he's not going to say, cool, we speak the same language. he's going to say, why are these brits driving on the left side of the road, and why is their food so nasty? likewise, when a taiwanese goes to the mainland, he's likely to say, why are mainlanders driving so recklessly, and smoking in the elevators, rather than saying, cool, we both worship buda. and one of the biggest problems with china's nationalism today is how the mainland tries so hard to be like tw, hk. people are much more likely to respect you because you are being yourself. often times, it's your individuality and uniqueness that gains others respect. if you try to be something you're not, that only makes you look bad.

this is why mao had a better idea of trying to find friends in far away places with common goals. it was more likely for china to find friends in africa than it was to find friends in hk, and tw. often times, it took little effort for china to win friends in africa, or sri lanka, but despite the hard efforts put forth by deng, jiang, hu, and xi, with billions wasted, theres been little, or no progres from hongers and taiwanese. this is because hongers and taiwanese are mostly reactionary, and reactionaries will do reactionary things. practically speaking, it would have been better off to pour money into north korea, albania, or pakistan instead of hk, and tw, because hk/tw hand outs have been a complete waste. not only have hk/tw handouts not united china, it's made hk/tw more anti chinese. just like deng couldnt be rehabilitated, neither can the hk, or tw ruling class. they sided with inpeialism the first time, and they;ll side with them this time. compradores will always put self interest, and survival first, and they know it is safe to follow the west. despite all the money hk actors made off the “mainland market", most hk actors sided with the west in the occupy central riots. this tells us 3 things. dengism has failed at integrating hk; you cant buy respect; and that nationalism doesnt work.

its hard to say that culture doesnt help, because it does. for example, when the chinese wanted to expand their influence into malaysia, and indonesia, they relied on overseas ethnic chinese to promote the chinese comunist cause, and it worked, but it only worked under these circumstances. the chinese at the time were not afraid of the west like they are today. because of the fearlessness, the chinese were able to train, and arm indonesian, and malaysian guerilas. the chinese at the time also had very strong prapaganda with a unique, distinct and consistent opinion.
