it's also true that Serpenza started somewhat more objective/informative then turned into a huge china basher.
Quote:In late 2018, he indicated that a desire to create "positive content" about China and an encounter with Chinese government officials spurred him to move out of China.[12]
He's based in California now I see. I wonder if his doctor wife went with him. I doubt it though. Why would she give up her career and patients so he can make youtube videos?


I agree with him here.

I have never seen him 'hugely bash' China. Admittedly I have seen only a handful of his videos, maybe 5.

But it seems to me that what he said is you can't be lukewarm on China, because then you will get attacked by both sides, those who want you to only say the good things, and those who are entirely focused on the negative aspects (eating dogs, government censorship, etc).

He said the same thing as you EY, that there has been a big change in the last few years. The government WAS weakening its grip, and giving people more freedoms, but now they are rapidly tightening their grip, once again.
yes big big changes. total reversal of policies since 2015 or so


good doc on shady ingredients used in Chinese restaurants on the mainland


Hey can we start another thread about fucked up China shit? I'd like to keep this thread clean and positive. I think that's what OP intended.

this guy is rational and seems to understand China and the situation better than Serpenza

however in the last few years China has really ramped up the security state which IMO is NOT THE RIGHT DIRECTION!!!

this is what a lot of westerners don't get. often times the "respect" for a foreigner is just superficial

more often than not, westerners are treated more like a novelty in China, but the avg. Westerner interprets that as "i livin like a king!"
