    The Chinese here fulfill the mission of their department of propaganda by finding the one-off articles.

    All these propagandist posters here do is speak to physical structures they have built...BECAUSE you see the Chinese are a failure as a brand. They are looked as a transactional relationship. They don't have any brand, culture, way of life, governance or people skills anyone covets or wants to adopt as aspirational. That's why their transactional allies don't yearn to go to live among them, move there or covet them as a brand.

    This is why they the Chinese government fakes nearly 450 million social media comments a year.

    I don't, you must've mistaken me for someone else. I care more about what's coming than what's in the past

    A country just has over a couple of centuries old and was build on stolen land by killing off almost all native population talks about brands and culture. What a joke, US is just a very new brand in the human history, you can barely say there's a hisotry for US.

    Lol! Your whole country is being built around US inventions. You've thrown away thousands of years of Chinese tradition for ours.

    Everywhere you look you are surrounded by US or maybe European inventions.

    Glass and steel Skyscrapers, portland cement, trains, cars, airplanes, construction cranes, street lights, electricity, escalators, elevators, LED lights, TVs, smartphones, eyeglasses, watches, ballpoint pens, plastic, washing machines, and even your clothes! Spin around in your home or out in the street and ask yourself what do you see that was invented by a Chinese person compared to an American. You'll be hard pressed as it is all vanishing before your eyes.

    This is just as ridiculous as Chinese claim credit for modern western civilization. Without Chinese gun power and compass, Western countries couldn't even possibly discover "New World", let alone conquer.

    Well for some reason the world isn't rebuilding their cities in China's traditional image...why are they choosing one's based on the West?

    Really, China as a country has been around for almost 5 thousand years, how long a history US has? and we were build by US? The other ways is more like it. US now is being built by everything made in China, you are just lazy bums who can almost make nothing now

    Name a Chinese invention from the last 20 years that is ubiquitous in the world.

    Start listing them..spin around in your home and then outside and point them out.

    The world is not been around for just 20 years and what's the point of that? UK invented many things but that still can't stop them from declining. This thread is not talking about recent inventions, it's about what foreigners see the real China after years of brainwashing.

    How about Chinese governance, "Socialism with Chinese characteristics" which has produced incredible results that no other country could?

    You even need to put an asterisk on Socialism. Nice try though. Try again. Don't let us all on PDF down.

    You've spent huge money rebuilding China...you must have created something ubiquitous after all that investment....come on boys start naming them...

    It is not about inventing a few tech A or Tech B in a span of 20 years, which is a friction of a second in human history. It is about a huge social experiment that has never been tried in the scale that it is in the history of mankind, and Chinese is wining in such a fashion that the Orange Guy would even called his own country a 3rd world country in comparison. Inventions or innovations will follow.

    10 years ago, nobody could even imagine a Chinese product, such as DJI, would take majority of world market share 10 years down the road. This is just a beginning.

    Even DJI didn't invent the quadcopter. They've been around since the 1990's.



    Try again.

    Since you love history so much you should know that what you can do in the past doesn't mean what you can do in the future. You are just stuck in the past which disabled you to see the present and the future.

    It doesn't matter. Apple did not invent smart phone either, it first appeared as T-moble's Droid by HTC.

    If you are sincere about China's innovations and inventions, there is a good running thread on PDF that you can follow:

    Who says Apple was the first? I believe IBM is considered the first back in 1995.

    If it is that easy then just paste a few here...should be easier than all of us scanning that thread. Should take you two seconds. Remember ubiquitous inventions.
