3:12 pm
a perception on the part of foreign companies that this really was a huge opportunity there wasn't just a 1000000000 people of as a 1000000000 people were purchasing power. all the business people went back and so if you look at the numbers that the investments. the f.b.i. find about the foreign direct investment all the flows all the indicators all get back to no. western business at 1st required from china in the wake of the tenement square massacre but quickly dumped back on the chinese bandwagon. the dung era mantra to be rich is glorious it was paying off in china under junk the name would reap the rewards. after 92. really don't read and come as they are as long as you don't change my political authority you can do whatever so the chinese ingenuity very hard working chinese people the release of
3:13 pm
the make money fast through a new small part to have a free access remark of technology and so on so the chinese for the hiding their world order ambition their china order ambitions of. ordinary country even in charge making rich. living standards improved and poverty reduced at unprecedented levels john symond was filling the mandate from heaven. craig that validated a leader's authority he was providing for his people. made in china became a global calling card for electronic machinery textiles for household goods were exported around the world times brand and its notion of jam sound all led to heaven way beyond its 19th century peak. china's expanded reach oversea it was also drawing in marginal territories at home. by the early 1990 s.
3:14 pm
minority groups once considered peripheral are now strategically closer to the han chinese government's central control. china is a nation of 56 major ethnic groups not among the list seek on. highly homogeneous a nation the fundamental challenge is how to. maintain stability and older in such a model that as environment. china's diverse population has long been held together by a central authority. but so many belong to ethnic groups such as the tibetan buddhists in china south west and the some in the western region of shinji on. their lands have been forcibly an ex-wife communist rule the routing the religious and political freedom to missing only a shallow conditional autonomy. during the reform era as industry spread further
3:15 pm
west. a directed migration of china's majority how people transformed the demography particularly. as beijing made claim to the riches of the land the chinese media minister hun people. to migrate to tibet try to you know a change of demography there right and also natural resource i problem the a division for gains from exploration of natural resources like oil and gas for example is an economic reason for the resentment the water from the plant to bet by toll feeds all the major rivers and the tributaries in asia china's development needs those resources they need to extract those natural resources to fuel economic development. the. tobacco seen in the late 1900 instance.
3:16 pm
tibetans food for independence but their claims were denied. their protests recent down by the time state. the was the. the. the the for the reader's stay for question added fuel to a separatist movement that's a decade's sore to reclaim as a muslim majority state so-called east turkistan. after the reforms started in the eighty's and ninety's the chance comes and also force culture assimilation in the ninety's the weaker side to take things in their own
3:17 pm
hands is pressure to read a core elements of it and they hope that was an old notion of east took a man is that the separatist movements were running amok and they decided to maximize their impact by bombing public facilities transportation for example in discriminately killing people of different nationalities you would actually expect to see deter ration and escalation if such events are not controlled the problem with. beijing took an uncompromising line on those i just wanted to split from china. the chinese communist party strike hard campaign in 1906 stamped down on any calls for independence violence peaceful.
3:18 pm
riga as well as tibet and separatists were shown little mercy the leaderless doctrine throughout china's history to keep a strict. it was again the 1st resort of authoritarian rule. we see in the 1900 the strike hard campaigns what what what were the strike od campaigns about what were the goal of this trying to compare as she is kind of rooting apply of extra legal punishment of a people who allegedly committed a crime that is a mess or or was employed. by modern different name and things are playing sort of for reasons to do that early as 983 to deal with the holograms
3:19 pm
destabilizing society in a harsh way. could then be argued that this dry current campaign this effort whether brute force or not to maintain stability is what allowed china to prosper economically i mean at the same time and to live there we saw this huge economic growth victor what do you remember from that period i would say the chinese government ever since 1978 is very much driven by maintaining stability political stability at all cost i personally don't think strike harsh is one of the most impressive things in our memory i think it was rapid economic reform and much more opening to the outside world in the 1990 s. they're really good out we're dealing with a fallacy here the fallacy is that if the parties they had not the voters so much resources to maintain stability china's economic growth would not have happened or
3:20 pm
would not have happened quite so fast quite spectacularly because the issue is to maintain stability or or cost what to me about or cost and who has the ability you don't have to kill people all the way to get there is easy. then the reality the chinese economic transformation is a miracle in itself there must be internal reasons which can explain the profound the transformation no single other country can do it's not true for. part of me grew faster in 1000 turns 20 twentieth's and tonight in thirty's fast in p.r.c. overachieved. members 1st of all i don't think professors or many other people in the world know all the real secret behind the chinese. what is therefore therefore therefore. probably we do not know what exactly is driving china's
3:21 pm
profile the transformation now whether people in other countries like it or not we don't care when to me stability at all cost and keeping peace we all remaining the pillars upon which. china are working to maintain world peace what has china done. response from france is. the strength that china has kept good person for a century and a half was about to see the timing up i'm going to story loose and 5 hours from now the union flag will be lowered and the flag of china will fly over hong kong. in the villages closest to the chinese border is a hong kong a world away from the bunny baking frenzy of the city. here the flags of the mainland fly in celebration of the imminent return to china. hong kong has always
3:22 pm
been part of china so it's always nice to go back to the motherland but it different views being expressed in the very heart of hong kong's tourist in business center. where basically very skeptical and now we have the wiring was any. on that 1st day in charge this is the 1st test of the new regimes promises of tolerance. the preacher did not give a calm people a right to them for themselves we limited in the words. only participate in the governance of the economy in a limited fashion right so it's not democracy but. let's be absolutely clear about the bush legacy it was the rule of law which was very important but there was no democracy there were no to elections to let any calling until about 10 years before the handover.
3:23 pm
in 1907 britain's 99 year lease on hong kong expired. the colony it had secured as one of the schools of the opium wars was reluctantly returned to china. beijing would implement a policy of one country 2 systems in hong kong leaving its model of making money untouched and for a period of 50 years granting its people a degree of self governance and civic rights denied to those on the mainland at least for the next half century. there would be a guarantee. for 50 years of hong kong people's way of life our core values so these were supposed to be protected. and hong kong would move toward something called genuine like autonomy democracy it was implied by really promised.
3:24 pm

3:25 pm
so i think. a lot of visors policy advisors this studied the rise and fall of great powers learn some lessons so they realize there is rise of new great powers my generated used ability in the international system maybe even conflict so they try to figure out how to avoid is that kind of confrontation that established. china begins to usurp the place of the united states and japan as a trading nation and becomes the major trading partner of all of the countries in this region is that it was the context how would you know how and his out of vi there is proposed the idea of peaceful rise but later on they realize you've abused her rise was a little bit threatening because if you rise others must be crying right so they live further change the slogan from peaceful rise to peers will be relevant because

in 2013 and president xi jinping arrived with a vision for china far from the city to modesty of his police essence. he would stake his claim on power and on the support of the people by taking on a scourge that had long corroded china's political system. so see if you ping introduces. this anti corruption drug tigers and flies into their words the big. under smoke the 1st and most important part is in fact a party reciprocation campaign to get rid of the corrupt and ineffective and disloyal so to the party will be loyal to him secondly. we can change when the popular leader in china because he was seen as

3:37 pm
northern africa or eventually it spilled over into the totality of the african continent what do you do with all that know how all that capacity work you offer it or you find the rest of the world that needs it and make the contribution that way and in return they buy chinese goods or however they decide to pay for it it's intimidation it's intimate political intimidation economic intimidation i think people are saying see that's not really a win win deal after all the only one that. when winning is is china because now we're just debtors now they own everything now they own the port now they own the airport now they all die hard report one of the purpose was to and able china to stream from is a relationship with a whole bunch of countries how signed off the immediate 4 bits of cuneta stays and

3:39 pm
his ground. china need to have a strong leader and we need stability at all costs we cannot afford a situation where the party the government the region the country the culture the civilization will be dissing integrated the message you're sending because today china is not in any dire crisis as of asia the region however is still is internal paranoia for security that's where the problem is because the region the losses legitimacy after all the decades and now is basically by. buying favors from people allowed to make money and by pretending i'm not doing any trouble site but i'm computer muscles because only muscles only power. government the confidence what has happened. is that he's decided shopping
3:40 pm
principle of hiding and biting is all for the china moment is now. that china will now come out. and we question and we choir's the rest of the world to paid do you respect it is that very assertive approach that she chimping has taken which is causing all kinds of changes in to in china's relationship with the rest of the world we have a certain leader in the us right now we have president donald trump and he is certainly perceiving it as a threat to the u.s. to the extent that he is that it actually is president can't he started this trade war issue with a trade war is the transformation that happened in the last 40 years previously the united states was very comfortable giving must've amount of investment and help for china's to develop not entirely altruistic really they were hoping that china would be more like the u.s.
3:41 pm
that didn't happened and china at the early stage of development was so much behind the americans that they were completely we lexapro yes the chinese are stealing our intellectual property rights and all that but we're sold much ahead of them they are now no longer comfortable because they see china now as a strategic competitor pushing for and the person being a world that is save for or retiring this and i would modify that. is not even the problem between us and china is a problem between us and the p.r.c. government unfortunately the government in china through various ways are doing things that seem to be threatening to the united states believe me and and that's where the bipartisan side doing things that are starting to be in that china seems poised or positioning itself i think somewhat as a as a superpower as an alternative to american leadership to an american or to the current world order that's what. few points 1st of all the united states seems to
3:42 pm
be increasingly losing its sanity about the specter of china again. size scale weight gain the more impact it cetera i think the professor talked about logical differences all human rights and democracy knoll leaders are not the most important thing between china and the united states the most to in cold need a driving force for increasing u s insanity is because china is gaining weight and becoming larger and larger as a force in the world. and emboldened xi jinping abolished presidential term limits freeing him to roofie years to come but while china's president has decreed freedom for himself he was cutting back the freedoms of the chinese people. turn arrests rights activists online bloggers were all subjected to increased state censorship and control familiar tools of repression
3:43 pm
for times minority groups. were to happen in is now becoming a c.c.p. is a war not just against terrorism or can separate is the local autonomy people but against regions well. so for the people outside of china we're looking we think looks like . is mansion and islam which may or may not be the case. sporadic outbreaks of violence between ethnic and we goes and as well as attacks on civilian targets by a small minority of weaker separatists had led to an unprecedented crackdown by the chinese state against the majority muslim people of the region use of recently increased order on greek is now took the form of course assimilation to what beijing called free vocational training camps. china was seemingly putting down the
3:44 pm
ambition of a separate nation by beating out the markers of a separate identity. it is absolutely true that there are violent terribly violent incidents of attacking her and chinese that is not a legitimate rationale for the authorities to then now pass legislation anti strenuous saying you are in extremis why are you an extremist you have a beard. you're fasting you're praying you're speaking the language those have now become signs of extremism one of the things the chinese government hoping doing into joe is reeducation camp this is very much play into the philosophy of we women tennis ability in a sense they want to have a preemptive effort right to stop the trouble people trying to start. the demands of some weakness for an independent state along with the wider
3:45 pm
clearance to islam and the turkish culture whose roots were seen as quite distinct from those of china's han majority were troubled with a. leaked documents in 2019 showed a state sanctioned program of mass incarceration of ethnic religious minorities mostly regas adding to the claims of brainwashing torture and sexual abuse. first hand accounts spoke of brutal sinusitis ation. those deemed too different were being branded with the hunt chinese standard. the chinese communist party denied all accusations. if you are talking about 2000000 people jailed or concentrated as some western reports even call them cars and trees and arms on a par with the nazi germany is concentration camps i feel this is really
3:46 pm
multivariate it with other altieri are multi-use i think the chinese government is doing the right thing. to make sure that stability is on a control. ability called for a crackdown on the symbols and the thick nia of islamic tradition. from public displays of arabic text to the banning of b.s. and even muslim names. reports of physical and sexual violence as well as or summated police surveillance and facial recognition technology to monitor weaker activity had brought a harsh new reality for the people of shinji. jan watched and gradually being transformed into a kind of a police state. and she chippings approach to it is to well make them good proper chinese is actually all right for them to be weaker if they'd simply
3:47 pm
eat and drink alcohol. preferably even smoke cigarettes like chinese citizens always don't. but not all han chinese have been prepared to be the good citizens to cream by beijing. what is happening in hong kong ever since i'm bradley campaign is that the hong kong people believe especially young people students believe their freedoms are undermined eroded. the one country 2 systems policy how to maintain an easy compromise since hong kong's return to china in 1907 in 2014 mastodon purchase against the lack of democratic process caused widespread destruction before phone police action and legal intervention brought the so-called umbrella revolution to an unproductive and
3:48 pm
. that the discontent remained. in the summer of 2019 as the hong kong secretive council try to introduce a controversial new extradition will. that discontent once again took to the streets. on last. week's edition will was abandoned but the protests continue and. they sang in police and escalated the use of violence. and that transformed the whole dynamics in hong kong from a very specific protests and specific demands to become something much much bigger then it becomes a matter of to with the. political to government it becomes a matter of democracy in hong kong. finally
3:49 pm
spread into purchases. purchases and police came to his perpetrators and victims by supporters and critics. beijing watched. the main violence and criminals and lawless weiss's as well as foreign powers keen to put china in his long gone but not one forgotten place. what's behind the whole history let's say of china from 49 is that legacy of. real humiliation military economic political where they lost land and ceded land that's why hong kong so important it comes from the sense that never again we will never be humiliated again. november 2000. the center of hong kong turned into a battlefield.
3:50 pm
students barricaded inside a poly technic building. riot police with live ammunition moving to clear them out. and tear gas for. the spectacle of a war zone with the specter of tanks looming in the minds of those old enough to remember the massacre at cinema school. shooting pain in the chinese communist party remember. if they allow this to continue in their view. they're going to look like they lost. to 2000000 hong kong people that we went out in the street and they had to back down. in the minds of an author it terry and dictator last thing you do is back down and
3:51 pm
let the people when they care a lot about face because of our message we have mixed messages wise to keep one cause one country to some system work the other things that i don't understand run listen to my own people because my control cannot be challenged your certain people want to launch a revolution in hong kong. it will not be accepted and it will not be tolerated and it will be dealt with as rebellion beijing is stuck if they let it happen they have lost if they bring out the troops they have lost what they're facing is a lose lose scenario. later in november district council election so the people of hong kong turn out in unprecedented numbers and vote overwhelmingly against probating candidates. 17 of the 18 local councils would now be controlled by council is calling for grace and
3:52 pm
democratic reform. echoing at the ballot box but protesters had sometimes peacefully sometimes violently called for on the streets. with this government there has been a big push to unite china under one identity at least this push through to remind people that you are chinese i think that's happening both engine john and it's happening in hong kong as well what is and what is behind that push through things emerged that one is the very strong in logic deeply rooted in the change from polity that men do is the top leader to control everything as much as possible as broadly as a possible engine joe or in hong kong the 2nd point is arguably is a total failure of the c.c.p. government to manage minority regions or manage. in hong kong that is after all
3:53 pm
those years since do not improve because a worse and worse right where i think there's something much more contemporary in explaining it is in the very nature of the political system and the communist party has a mission which is you used which is to unite all chinese bits back into mother china and therefore it is essential. for the communist party to get people in hong kong to fall in ny and behave light people on the mainland of china that's what they are doing in they are chinese to synthesise the weaker people to make them into han chinese citizens well i would say it is an insult to the way you go people and the legal country to believe that you can synthesize the we girls know what they're doing the wiggles are the very proud muslim people are brothers as sisters of ours and you can never change their culture or heritage you
3:54 pm
