Bertrand Russell On China

"I have come to realize that the white race isn't as important as I used to think it was. If Europe and America kill themselves off in war it will not necessarily mean the destruction of the human species or even an end to civilization. There would still be a considerable number of Chinese left; and in many ways China is the greatest country I have ever seen. It is not only the greatest numerically and the greatest culturally, but it seems t be the greatest intellectually. I know of no other civilization where there is such open-mindedness, such realism, such willingness to face the facts as they are, instead of trying to distort them into a particular pattern." Bertrand Russell wrote the above in 1921, Today in this 21st century already over taking America, we can all see China as a world power on the rise not because of militarization, but precisely due to the power of science and technology, and indeed, the power of hard work otherwise more known as industrialization.

Very funy, being angry at someone that doesnt exist. You must be a lunatic.

Frankly my dear I would rather be a lunatic than be a Catholic. As a lunatic I believe in the joys of life after birth. The catholic believe only in the joys of life after death. There isn't any. Please visit the cemetery - there you can clearly see that there is no life after death. Cheers! Poch Suzara
