One Country, Two Systems / 一国两制

China is probably is the only country that has two systems in the world. It was named by the Chinese government that one country two systems. Hong Kong was colonized by Britain invaders who handed back to China in 1997. After that, the economy of one of the most prosper territory encountered a downturn. Taiwan which was separated from mainland China during civil war in 1949. Some Taiwan people didn't admit Taiwan is part of China and some foreign friends also mentioned they support the independent of Taiwan because it has been over 50 years since Chinese government failed to claim the territory back.

Systems or politics are not my concern and none of my business. What I could see from the bank note is we share same culture, we share same spirit.

Taiwan and Hong Kong kept the traditional Chinese whereas mainland China wants to keep writing simple and started using simplified Chinese. Although the writing is different some people in these two areas said we as mainland Chinese people lost a number of culture, heritage...

Look back upon the last two decades, we prospered our economy but we sacrifice quite a lot of culture. Is it worth doing in that way?

 

中国可能是世界上唯一一个有两种社会制度的国家。中国政府称其为一国两制。香港是在1997年从英国侵略者手里回归祖国。但是此后,香港经济作为最繁荣的经济区域之一遇到了全所未有的下挫。台湾在1949年解放战争后和大陆形成对立。有一部分台湾人不承认其是中国大陆的一部分。我的一些国外朋友也认为是这样的,因为中央政府没有办法收复台湾,时间已经过去了超过50年。

社会制度或政治,我根本不关心,也不关我的鸟事。能从这些钞票上看到的是相似的文化和共同的精神。

台湾和香港保留了繁体中文,而大陆则使用简体中文。尽管写法有所不同,但是在香港和台湾,人们说大陆的中国人丢失了很多文化和祖先留给他们的东西。

回看着过去这20年,我们的经济欣欣向荣,但是却牺牲了许多文化。真的值得那么做吗?
