Lolencio Faze : Why is china so good building *everything*

Akon : When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril.    我们被预言是下一个超级大国了,我们被指是主要威胁。 When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat.    那时我们闭关自守,你走私鸦片来强开门户; When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.    我们拥抱自由贸易了,你责骂我们抢走你的饭碗。 When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.    那时我们风雨飘摇,你铁蹄犯境要求机会均等;   When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share. 我们要整合破碎的山河,你说我们“入侵”…… When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion!    我们试行马列救国,你痛恨我们成为异己分子;    When tried communism, you hated us for being communist.    我们拥抱资本主义了,你又恨我们当了资本家。    When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist.    当我们的人口到达十亿,你说我们在摧毁地球;    When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.    我们要限制人口了,你说我们践踏人权。    When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.    那时我们一贫如洗,你视我们贱如狗;    When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.    我们有钞票借给你了,你怨我们令你国债累累。 When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.    我们发展工业了,你说我们是污染者; When we build our industries, you call us polluters.   我们有货品卖给你了,你说我们是地球暖化的因由。    When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.    我们购买石油,你说我们榨取兼灭族;    When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.    你们为石油开战,你说是为了解救生灵。    When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.    那时我们动乱无序,你说我们没有法治;    When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.    现在我们要依法平暴,你说我们违反人权。    When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.    我们静默无声时,你说我们欠缺言论自由;    When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.    我们不再缄默了,你说我们是被洗了脑的仇外暴民。    When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes.    "为什么你这样憎恨我们?"我们想知道。    “Why do you hate us so much﹖”we asked.    “不”,你说,“我不恨你们。”    “No,” you answered, “we don't hate you.”    我们也不恨你,只是,你了解我们吗?    We don't hate you either, but, do you understand us?    “当然了解”,你说,“我们消息多的是,有 AFP、CNN、还有BBC……”    “Of course we do, ”you said, “We have AFP, CNN and BBC's ……”    那么你究竟要我们怎样生存?    What do you really want from us?    回答之前,请仔细的想一想… 因为你的机会不是无限的。    Think hard first, then answer, because you only get so many chances.    已经够多了…这个世界容不下更多的伪善了。 Enough is enough, enough hypocrisy for this one world.    我们要的是同一个世界,同一个梦想,靖世太平。 We want one world, one dream, and peace on earth.    这个宽广、辽阔的蓝地球,容得下你们,容得下我们。    This big blue earth is big enough for all of us.

J.R. Regenold : If you try to build a train in USA you'll get about 1 lawsuit for every track section you lay.

冯超 : 觉得评论里的中国人都淡定点! 他们爱说啥让他们去说,何必非要跟他们争个脸红脖子粗?我们自己清楚好与不好就行了,就不要那么较真了! 别人赞扬我们,心理乐呵下,说声谢谢就行!别人诋毁我们,就当他们是战忽局的,说声我们继续努力流行! 大国要有大国的气度和风度,别老是跟他们一般见识!虽然国家现在很多方面做得不够,但也在继续努力,但我坚信只会越来越好! 加油,中国!🇨🇳

Mike Litterst : This video was full of hatred and jealousy. Unlike us, China invests in their citizens and are willing to lose money in order to provide the same service for everyone regardless of how far they live. They don't want other provinces to feel left out or feel as if they are second class citizens. China has one of the largest economy in the world and within the last decade they have been able to make some of the biggest progress in the history of man kind. They have helped certain regions in Africa develop their country and become self-sufficient. Meanwhile, my country, the US, have been spending trillions of tax payer's dollars in order to wage wars on third world countries with brown and black people. We created a disaster in the Middle East and many other regions in the world. Our government have done more killing than anyone in history. Before we try to demonize other countries, we should re-evaluate ourselves and remember the crimes, genocides, catastrophes the US govt have committed.

Bat : What does this have to do with *planes?*

tomte47 : The cost of the wars in afghanistan and iraq from 2003-2010 is estimated at 1100 billion, that would buy you 36 000 miles of highspeed train but im sure the wars were a better investment.... :)

辯才無礙薩哈夫 : The logic of many people is like this: 1, My belief is that China is bad 2, But China seems to be good 3,So there have to be some reasonable explanations that I can use to make the reality fit my belief. 4, Blablabla 5, Effectively, China is bad, and my belief is preserved.

Nerte : Holy shit, stop using miles as primary information.

Eric Wong : American media be like..... "you see that? Communist China took over the freedom of air navigation, therefore people are forced to take train"

NathanWilson : I've always preferred the train to a plane.

epSos.de : *The density of customers* can allow China to grow businesses and infrastructure faster. Any small shop that sells tea and sandwiches can earn well, as long as 30k people pass by every day. Such is the situation in China. Any bakery has double or triple the amount of people who walk by.

weitao wu : This map of China is uncompleted. Remember that Taiwai is part of China.

RatherA : Why make railways for economic purpose when you can drop bombs on other weaker countries or overthrow their government and steal their resources. Regards, US, France, UK

ni ma wang : 中国人一直以来都受到儒家的思想影响,从来不会对别人进行指点或批判,因为这个世界上是没有绝对的 对与错,只是站在不同的立场所得到的结果。中国人一直尊重别人的观点,但中国人大多数喜欢沉默,因为他们觉得实际行动才是检验对与错的唯一标准。中国政府也是深知这个道理,一直以来都是先尝试后总结经验找问题,直到找到合适的结果为止,因为没有人能给予中国政府100%正确发展方向指引,只有不断尝试,当然犯错误是绝对会发生的,但中国政府自身犯错误都改正了,中国国内人民知道这点。你们说中国人不接收别人的指点和批评,中国是一个懂得学习他人错误经验的政府,只能说他们有强大的民族自信心和自豪感,外国人对他们的批评,他们也许会检讨自己,但相反中国人为什么这么反感批评我们的人呢?你们有什么优越感能批评我们?你们说的观点就是100%不受质疑批判式的正确?你们真的以为自己是上帝吗?我们自己走的道路与你何干?

Abage : Its the glorious *GOMMUNISM* , comrade

Cun Xue : 中国在几千年了经历太多的分分合合,经历过多次入侵,我们讨厌战争 想要安静的发展生活, 中国民族意识你不会懂,国家,有国才有家,政府就是一个家长, 有人说它专政,但是这是我们中国人需要的,我们不需要很多的家长在那里指挥, 一个共产党就够了, 只要它是为了我们人民的就行了, 看看进这几年的发展, 政府做的很多,比起别的国家他们做的已经够多了,我作为一个中国人 不知道你们这些西方国家为什么不想看到我们的生活越来越好,为什么要一直黑我们,我们指向和平这有错吗? 我们不民主但是这样可以减少罪犯, 我们的安全得到了更好的保护,我们作为中国人都没有说什么你们这些外国人为什么要对我们指手画脚? 你们的种族歧视解决了吗?你们说自己是高等种族, 但是几千年前中国有文明的时候你们还光着屁股跑,你们那时候被我们称为野蛮人,为什么没有入侵你们 ?因为你们穷, 你们懂吗? 要是讲种族中国人比你们任何国家的人都高贵 ,你们自认为你们很聪明 其实愚不可及, 中国的每个文字都是智慧,你们说我们被政府限制不知道外面的事情,那你猜猜我怎么看到你的视频的?用的VPN 只是一个简单第三方而已,很简单而已,其实我们中国人心理面比你们任何国家的人都清楚世界上的一切事情,只是你们以为我们不知道, 所以你们不知道你们所说的每一句话对我们来说有多愚蠢,你们也只能在民主还有中国共产党这一方向攻击我们, 但是,你知道你们的政府有多羡慕我们吗?因为我们一个党派可以规划以后10年.20年.30年的未来发展, 而你们做不到, 我们可以计划未来, 因为不管谁继任领导人都会按照这个计划做下去。,而你们做不到, 所以中国可以很好的发展, 一个党派 或者是不是共产党对我们中国人来说真的不重要,因为只要这个政府是为我们人民的,只要它能够带领我们发展, 我不知道这样说你们这些愚蠢的外国人能不能看懂, 总之如果说哪个国家有未来,那肯定是中国。

Ivan Daydream : When i was a kid it took me 4 hours to get to the city where my parents used to lived..now it only takes half an hour on a high speed train in way cheaper price.....i am so proud of my country

Wentao Yu : Friends of the world, listen to me about China. Twenty years ago, when I was still young, we were poor and did nothing.     The newspaper is discussing the issue of food and clothing, saying that the poor village family has only one pair of pants.      Listening to people around me said that Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots are like extraterrestrial visitors, and their eating and wearing are enviable to death.      At that time, there was a president in the United States called Clinton. He was handsome and romantic. He wanted to fight which country he wanted to fight. The Gulf War caused the spirits of all Chinese soldiers to collapse. They burst into tears and said that the war has become like this.          When the Taiwan Strait crisis was seen on television, the adults were nervous. Later I learned that they really worried that we would lose.    Later, the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia was bombed. We were very angry. All of China was concerned about Clinton’s lower body. Because of this, there is nothing else ridiculous in the United States.       We worked hard to open factories, sell toys, sell clothes, and hundreds of millions of workers went from the mainland to the coast. They said that China’s 800 million shirts replaced a Boeing aircraft.     At that time, there were no big ships in the sea, and the main force was a gunboat. The J-10 fighter is an amazing top secret, and we are not told to the average person.     The world is constantly changing, changing... We are still very poor, as if we can't do anything.     The word "food and clothing" no longer appears in the newspapers, and the issue of people's livelihood began to be discussed. Poverty villages no longer have only one pair of trousers, and left-behind children have become a new problem; Taiwan has opened a free line, and friends who have played in Taiwan have said that Taiwan is no different.          GDP surpassed Germany and killed small Japan; power generation surpassed that of the United States. This is the first time in human history. The world’s largest steel producer is China. Seven of the world’s ten largest cargo throughputs are our. We are no longer stretched and start to worry about overcapacity.     The United States changed the president and changed the president. They hit Iraq, beat Afghanistan, and played Libya. There is no money to fight in Syria, the shameful black-faced president is always very hard, Congress is busy quarreling, the government is waiting to close the door... We are no longer gloating over the Boston Massacre.     Taiwan independence is still tossing, and adults are no longer nervous. Instead, this Governor Cai’s speech is really funny.     Geely bought Volvo, Lenovo became the world's number one PC, we built half of the world's high-speed rail, and Japan, France and Germany are busy controversy, who let China steal the core technology.     We sold the machine to Germany and sold the missile to NATO. The Americans announced that Huawei and ZTE are evil enterprises. Oh, of course, there are North Industries and China Precision Machinery on this list.     The aircraft carrier has been formed into a formation, and the J16 carrier aircraft has taken off. J10 is no longer rare, we told the average person, J20 is already flying.    The satellite learned to form and the missile entered space. Let's say, build a space station yourself.    Time is not far away, far away... Half of Europeans and Americans say that China is the strongest economy.    Life is getting better and better, problems are getting more and more, vision is getting wider and wider, and the desire is more and more complicated. We will return to the peak of the world. But there is nothing to be proud of, and we have often been like this for the past few thousand years.

jinbo zhang : 感谢这个短片,没有作者和背后团队的努力,如何给西方社会洗脑,麻醉民众,掩护中国的崛起。

Inspect History : Well.. I'm not surprised. After all China had long tradition on making infrastructure since the era of Warring States Period, such as Qin Dynasty (Imperial / National Highway Road), Han Dynasty (Silk Road), etc For Chinese Government, better infrastructure (including Railways), mean better economy for PRC. Moreover they want to create "Belt and Road Initiative".

zzzlez : American shits right now: China steal America technology! Everything china do wrong! Only America is right!

warrior100girl : when do you Americans start to use the metric system like the rest of the world?

Zach Z : Seriously? where did you get that many Hong Kongers viewed it as encroachment? Why don't you mention that there are still many Hong Kongers who feel it as proud as people lived in the Mainland? Western Political prejudices only seek what might be beneficial and aligned with their stereotypical views toward China

md nematullah : chinese are among the most hardworking,desciplined and peaceful people.They focus on the development and infrastructure.They never waged war to any country to show their dominance Unlike westeners.I think china should know interfare in world matters to stop the atrocities of US and Nato.

Rennaaa : The political will for high speed trains? Or rather the lack of opposition to ideas?. Whatever the Chinese government wants, it does, no fussing about arguing among political parties.

shubham preet : WOW, chinese are really good at making megaprojects on time. A lot to learn from them!

Ashutosh Singh : What a waste of 12 minutes. This guy Couldn't tell WHY are they actually good at building. He told about the reason they're building it.

王嘉磊 : A wonderful video but you used wrong reasons to explain why China built high speed railways in the west part. When railways are built, more commutation and more business activities will flourish these areas. You cannot see something only static. Development is more important. You invest something, doing so just before others see this chance, Right? By the way, Tibet has affluent natural resource and biological resource. Xinjiang has a piece of vast land that is plot preferable. So please don't think it simple

kirillka : Because they stole all the tech from Japan and the West? # obvious.

Pistacho123Lol : COME ON MAN, USE KILOMETERS, COME ON!

Stephen Rudberg : Great video. China's economic growth in the last 10 or more years is staggering. If only Canada had the political will to do what China is doing, it would make long distance travel amazing.and a less.expenisive than flying.

aslam khan : I am the only one who don't like communism . But likes what communism did in china.

Yuzhou Zhang : Why is everyone in the comment section complaining about China stole technology from Japan? Does it matter if you are not the original, but you ended up beating the original? Isn't that a good thing? Well, propaganda at its finest. Imaging you wouldn't go to Wendy's and yell "You are not mcdonalds you are shit" to them just because they are not the first chained fast food restaurant?

don donzelo : i hate to listen when American shitty voice spoke falsy information's i think that's there special ability dictator,geography manipulator.....

Busta : Transportation: (exists) Wendover Productions: *N U T*

小铃铛 : This map should include Taiwan province

Radhika Technical : There is no political chaos like democratic nation... Many stupid born in democracy...

Wild Fire : good job! you reminded the chinese to build taiwan cross-Sea bridge 有钱任性

Maurizio S : The Japanese are the best train makers not the Chinese. The Shinkansen train system maybe doesn't have the fastest individual train anymore but it is the most efficient, safest and ultimately the most reliable mass transportation system in the world. It has never had any fatalities since its inception.

Michael Sigler : Why is China so good at building railways? Squarespace

Borja Etxebarria : China is a big country and has a lot of money correctly invested.   There are also good high speed train networks in European countries, but only INSIDE the countries; they are small compared to China. You can not talk about traveling from France to Greece high speed, that requires several international agreements that are not yet in place; the European Union still has tons of "borders", political, cultural, etc. France and Spain have good high speed networks but are not yet connected to each other even being neighbours!. Imagine high speed trains from China to Russia or Korea. No way, isn't it? It also helps China that they do not believe on intelectual property and basically ripped off the technology from companies in other countries, saving billions in I+D (that other countries had to spend).  I know first hand some companies in Europe that provided technology in some of the first high speed railroads in China, they were forced to transfer technology to get the contracts in China... of course they were not involved in all new railroads once China ripped off their technology. China is now starting to innovate ahead of other countries... and now they are also starting to be more strict with patents and intellectual property... coincidence? not at all! The US on the other side is a disaster, they have a large territory and tons of money and resources, they could have an amazing high speed network, but they prefer the car and being in traffic jams. Public transportation and trains are not well seen in the US. Shame!

ska punk OI! alternative living : It's kind of funny with your stupid video you claim that Chinese poor in America has more homeless than anywhere else in the world America is in Decline the West is on his way out but of course this video will not admit that China is up and coming by stuff around the world and setting claim as the next superpower so trust me China is not pull

M9 : Wow, China is good in building high speed train. China starts much later than other countries to build high speed trains but builds the most high speed trains. Good job China.

Ivy Tan : The answer is at 11:17. You're welcome.

G Dunken : Good video. BTW, if anyone wondering about where was airplane mentioned in the video, he said the word "plane" first at 2:16

James Lade : And trains take you from city center to city center also. Then you hop on the subway. I really liked taking the old “slow “ trains. I would take a sleeping car. Cheaper than high speed. For example get on in Shanghai in the evening. Sleep comfortably on the train and in the morning you’re in Guangzhou (near Hong Kong) marvelous! 👍👍👍

Ruize Sun : WTF? The map he used does not include Taiwan Provinice?! Taiwan province is always one part of China!

吴林达 : 地图不全!属于我们的一点都不能少!不属于我们的我们一分不拿!

Yunyan Zhou : Taiwan is the territory of China, please correct the map error!
