Well you can hate chinese goverment for what it does, but Chinese goverment has made China one of the top countries. It has the largest economic power in the world. Without firm grip China would be separeted in many parts and the crime rate would go so high that it would be nearly impossible to live there.

btw this is a popular answer on quora:


In order to have a "court", you have to have a judge, a set of laws that are agreed by all, and applied equally upon all members, and an enforcer. You also need people to basically voluntarily agree to the proceedings.

  • Did the Chinese elect the judge? No? Well.
  • Did the Chinese write the laws, or help write the laws? No? Well.
  • Are the laws applied equally upon all members? No? Well.
  • Who volunteers to enforce the laws? Don't tell me it's the US since the US itself never, ever, submit to foreign laws.

I love my Chinese friends but I hate the fact that the Chinese government is insisting to capture the islands of Japan, Vietnam and now our virgin island Scarborough Shoal though the United Nations already gave a verdict that through all evidences and territorial check, that island belongs to the Philippines, proven and supported by the international law. I don't think it's right and plausible. Richness in materialism is nothing if morality is compromised. I just hope that they respect other countries' sovereignty like how others do that to them. As Chinese Philosopher Confucius said 'Do unto others what you want others do unto you'.

Hi cath,

I am glad that you are interested in history. But this issue is not about history.

China's point is simple:

A tribunal is not allowed to pass judgement on a territorial and boundary dispute since a tribunal doesn't have competence nor power to judge such matter.

They don't have the juridiction over such issue, period. China has every right to ignore the desicion made by this "international court", which five judges are all from Europe with one recommended by Ph and other 4 appointed by Shunji Yanai. You can google this person and tell me if there is a conflct of interest.

ps: fun fact, this a matter under the Convention, which the USA has never signed but force other participants to "respect the Convention."

I will continue helping any Chinese people or whatever nationality without asking anything in return. Filipinos remain hospitable to Chinese people treating them like family, but we will never agree to the depression that the Chinese government is doing to the long peaceful lands of the Philippines.
