Hi guys,   Just watched this very interesting video by an ex-pat who lived in China for many years before leaving to go and live in the USA because of worsening hassles. A lot of things that

On the other hand, he still has a good looking woman in his bed every night, which he probably wouldn't have managed in his home country. We're all here for the cheap and available slim and attractive

What I am concerned about is that the Thai government is getting their ideas (or orders) from the Chinese, particularly the anti-Western sentiment he alludes to.

Just curious, if by some quirk of fate through age or other factors you lost the ability to have sex, how on earth would you cope ?

You have to admit there is a heck of a lot more to a relationship than sex, yet yours seems to be only about sex and "nothing else really matters" ?  so what would you do then ?

 

Great comment. If you follow this guy then you will see that sex is not on his agenda. He is successful and wants to enjoy his life in China - he is fluent in Mandarin.

ok, I'll bite, lets say China is the puppeteer of Thai immigration policies.  Now that you know this 'fact' what are you proposing you do with it? Another petition?  maybe action in the streets? I can see it now in the news headline 'expat revolt leads to overturn of immigration policy'. I mean, what's the freakin point of even whining about all this? lol

I would suggest not creating a petition or demonstration as China doesn't have the greatest history in those regards. Best to go somewhere else. Life is for enjoying, not being oppressed. "what's the freakin point of even whining about all this" - maybe that's what the Polish Jews said as they were forced into the gas chambers. Learn to stick up for yourself.

Maybe I should have phrased it "We all CAME here .........."

I've been following his channel for a while. The situation looks worse in China compared to Thailand. 

 

In the above video near the end (I watched the whole thing) there is a Q&A where someone asks what is the best Asian country to retire in, most amenable to allowing foreigners to stay, he actually says Thailand!

Having watched the  videos at the start of this  topic I  can understand  the similarities that  many can/have drawn to ongoing  issues regarding expat existence in Thailand.

However I also believe that  with  some reasonable retrospective consideration of  a wider view of nationalistic xenophobic and  racist restrictions  being applied almost  globally based on  various stated criteria  that  there is little difference overall where it  it  involves the difficulty  for individuals  even for  assumed   "right  to travel" either locally or internationally.

At times I am amused with  the  general "western" perception that perpetuates about the status of  Asian countries in that they are generally  considered  "3rd world". 

At best many, if not  most, would still consider China  to be  a "developing"  country. And  yes  it is . Continuously . The USA is  stagnating by  comparison and  has been so for decades in terms of productive infrastructural upgrade.

And so have  most  of the  western"  European nations that  have succumbed to the ideals of  "preservation" of  assumed perpetual superiority.

How  many ways has it and can it be  said?  The  wheel turns. Every dog  has it's  day. etc etc.

History I will never live long enough  ( I hope) will demonstrate that the base  instinct  to survive  that is strongest in the least advantaged will either be  perpetuated or eventually  wiped  by the inevitable advent  of  AI.
