If you can't let go of the past you are doomed to repeat it. Humiliation would seem to be an opposite of revolution. Lift up the people in spirit and remembrance not mire them in misery of a past that no longer exists.

The phrase is actually "those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it."

It's none of your business to ask why we Chinese people should set up the Humiliation day? The attitude of Chinese people toward Japanese is very subtle, you can't understand

You know nothing...well...you really know nothing. There is nothing subtle about this attitude of Chinese to Japanese. And to be fair, individual Chinese have different individual opinions about this. And Taiwanese and different regions have different opinions as well. But here is one thing that should be said:

If I want this to be my business...if I am interested in this...no matter what my nationalisty is...I have a write to ask the question. I have a right to an opinion. And you should not dismiss what others say under the assumption that others are a) not Chinese (you don't know this) and b) only Chinese could understand Chinese nationalism.

Yes, Ogami_ito, you "know" nothing, because you don't know the fates of the 35,000,000 innocent Chinese men, women and children who were murdered in the most barbaric way in modern time by your GOD-damned Japanese fascist-fathers.

Yes, Ogami_ito, you "know" nothing because to this day and age, when EVERY German former Nazi war criminal, either got hung or died an animal death in some dark corner of the world, some Jap war criminals still "enjoy" their pathetic, miserable piggy days, openly, on the land of the beasts called Japan, AND some of them even are being worshiped in the filthy pig cage called Yakasuni.

Yes, Ogami_ito, you "know" nothing, because in your little mash called brain, you "feel" nothing is wrong for your Jap father, uncle, brother to rape, mutilate 20,000 Chinese grandma, women, babies and murdered 300,000 Chinese in one city alone Nanjing.

Yes, Ogami_ito, you "know" nothing because to this very moment, when you blow from your upper orifice that sounds like from the lower orifice, the chemical weapons that you Jap father left behind in Northeast China still kill, maim and injure our Chinese people...

Yes, Ogami_ito, you REALLY "know" nothing. Indeed

Where is the statue to comemerate the victims of the cultural revolution?

To "Searching for truth"

You sound like a pathetic and confused "Chinaman" more than a real Chinese in the Chinese Century.

The subject at hands is about the barbaric crime committed by the Western powers and the Japs, in their genocidal invasions of China not long ago.

If you want to veer off to other topics, we could easily recount the genocides by the American on Native Indians; the genocides by the British in EVERY corner of the world; the genocides by the French in Africa, Indochina; the genocide by the German in Europe...

We will be talking about mountains of dead body and rivers of spilled blood, caused by the endless crimes of the Western barbaric colonialists for centuries! Their crimes are recorded and will be brought to trial someday.

Now, what else do you have to say, "Chinaman"?

i was pointing out the selective memory of the CCP in using atrocities inflicted by foreign powers in order to galvanise some kind of nationalistic feeling whilst blatantly ignoring and failing to take responsibilty for their own terrible deads of the past.

the mesage is to move forwrds and focus on the future not engage in rabble rowsing finger pointing as this is counter productive and works in both directions.

BTW isn't the a little rascist?

I guess its an attempt at sarcasm and a suggestion that I am not a true "chink" . bad news .... I am

A "Chinaman" calling a Modern Chinese a racist? Do you understand what is a "Chinaman"? Read some history book, please.

You are talking to an ordinary person with an independent mind, NOT to CCP or Chinese government that you are obsessed with. So, throw away your ignorance and your "Chinese servant mentality", be a proud and self-confident Chinese man, would you?

The souls of the 35,000,000 murdered innocent Chinese men, women and children have been crying out for more than 71 years for justice. The Japs-criminals have not atoned to their crimes, haven't paid a dime to their victims, have continued to "worship" their war criminal fathers, and you, a Chinese impostor, try to gloss over the inhuman crime by these Japanese beasts?

A man without past is a man without virtue.

A nation without history is a short-lived nation.

You ARE a true "chink". You are definitely NOT a proud Chinese man that I know and admire.

Firstly, I doubt that you are a true "Chink" as you stated. Because, since "Chink" and "Chinaman" are the two words of humiliation to Chinese made in USA and the West, few if not none Chinese like to use that terminology to call themselves.
If you are really a Chinese, you are the good example of Chinese with a subserviant mentality like our ancestors during the end of Qing dynasty which had made China weak and become half conquered and half feudal state called by the Western countries as "The sick man of the East".
Your statement is a copy of Western Propaganda to despise and tarnish the Revolutionary effort of Chairman Mao which has made China strong as today, and gave back pride and dignity and self confidence to the Chinese people.
Either one you are, we can not agree with you.

Dear Mr. Modern Chinese Man in America

right you are

you don't know me

and i don't seek your approval or admiration to validate my worthless subserviant existence.

the actions/attrocities i mentioned earlier were carried out in my lifetime by my own government on me and my family. this pain cannot be erased.
"a man without past is a man without virtue" maybe true, however a selective memory of that past is hypocracy.

i am not condoning the japanese and their inhumane and barbaric treatment of my countrymen this is inexcusable. they too must be held accountable for their actions... and face up to their responsibilties.

ModernChinese:

You are talking about bringing the Western peoples to trial for acts lost in history. The western people alive today played no role in these acts and only a few of their ancestors did; the majority of westerners alive today will not be decended from those who committed atrocoties in the same vein that only about 1% of white people owned black slaves.

Suggesting to punish 6th or 7th generation decendents of those acts would be wrong morally although I understand the emotional impulse to annihilate the genetic propogation of people who wrong against you, as you see it. But what you are doing here isn't even that since most western blood lines were not involved in this and lived in cities as low paid workers in western countries. What you are suggesting is to attack everyone who lives in one half of the world because some people a long time ago who also lived in that part of the world did something you don't like.

I hope you take another look at your impulses in that light as your hatred is from another source and directed in this fashion as an outlet. Perhaps some western people have been racist to you from your description of your fellow Chinese as a "chink". While making an effort not to be offensive, white western people are mostly bemused as to why racial epithets incite such anger in non-whites as whites do not find it offensive when epithets are used against them. We like being white, it's impossible to insult us for it. Considering how successful China has been throughout history and is looking set to take the a leading role in the future once again I find it hard to imagine how you could find any epithet against being Chinese offensive unless looking for reasons to take offense.

Your attitude about bringing westerners to trial for some colonial transgression not even associated with the majority of western peoples is frankly disturbing. I hope you don't end up like those Japanese war criminals you despise.

If what you say is true about Japanese war criminals not being brought to trial I can sympathise. Consider however that the Japanese were a proud race, who had not one but TWO atom bombs dropped onto their cities slaughtering tens of thousands of innocent civilians. It is not on the scale of what they did in China, but Japan is a lot smaller than China. Their shame was enormous and the world considers that the horrors committed by everyone in World War 2 should be left in World War 2. Bringing up the past is only useful if you wish to stir resentment to bring about... another World War.

This is not a good idea. Like Einstein said, "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

Consider the most successful strategy for winning game theory, tit-for tat:
1. Unless provoked, the agent will always cooperate
2. If provoked, the agent will retaliate
3. The agent is quick to forgive
4. The agent must have a good chance of competing against the opponent more than once.

Note "quick to forgive". World War 2 happened because western civilizations brutally punished Germany for World War 1. We learned and were a lot less vengeful against Germany for World War 2. You seem to be a proud man, would brutual punishment from the Japanese ever bring anything positive from you? Then what makes you think it will bring anything positive from the Japanese?
China has nothing to be ashamed of. Other countries wish they could do what China can. The BBC reported on the Chinese olympics saying to our government, "How are London going to beat the Chiense in 2012?" Our government replied, "Don't be silly, that's China. We can't do anything like that. Our ceremony will be great in it's own way but it will not be on the scale of what China did."

It's time to let this one go.

White Western,

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY are still killing 1,500,000 men, women, and children in Iraq, and counting.

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY are still killing 500,000 men, women, and children in Afghanistan, and counting.

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY still are killing thousands of innocent men, women, and children in Pakistan, and counting.

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY still are conducting the opium/drug trafficking in China like their God-damned fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts have been doing all those years.

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY still are trafficking our Chinese national treasures that your God-damned fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts…looted from our Imperial Palace which they burnt down not long ago.

The Western barbaric criminals TODAY still are recruiting, training, and setting loose the terrorist-attack dogs to murder our Chinese people in Tibet, in Xinjiang, in the same ways as your God-damned fathers, mothers, uncles, aunts did not long ago, using the Indians, the Nepalese mercenaries for the misdeeds.

So, look at the mirror, brush your teeth, comb your hair, shave your hairy face, put on some decent clothes, pray to your devils…before you venture out to the global forum to face the humans, before the payback time is not far away!

The MODERN CHINESE will make sure each and every one Western white devil whose hands are soaked with Chinese blood, be grabbed by the collar and dragged to the WORLD COURT to face justice, no matter how long it takes, how much sacrifice we have to endure!
